After being thrown out of their apartment, the Stooges try a new scam to gain some money: find a hotel, slip on a cake of soap, and sue the owners to get a huge settlement. In their attempts they come across an old lady hotel owner who is on the brink of losing her hotel if she doesn't pay the interest on her note. Taking pity on her, they immediately start fixing up the place, and go all out to impress important columnist Waldo Twitchell on opening night.

The Three Stooges Journal # 128 (Winter 2008) presents a transcription of an unknown gag scene from the carpentry sequence, found in Jules White's copy of the script; whether it was unfilmed, or filmed and then edited, is unknown.

Utility player Al Thompson has two roles in the nightclub scenes. First, he's the man with the seltzer bottle, wearing a mustache and round-lens glasses; he's also on the dance floor, without glasses and mustache. Meanwhile, Elinor Vandivere plays the dignified woman in Waldo Twitchell's party. At the same time she's sitting at Twitchell's table with her date (Charles Dorety), she's on the dance floor with Al Thompson.
