Model Answer 1:
Well, I can’t say that I have always enjoyed staying at a hotel, no matter how many nights I spend there. Today, I would like to share the story of one such hotel stay, which I didn’t like even though it lasted for only one night.

It happened about a year ago when I went to visit one of my cousin’s places in the remote countryside. Now, I am not sure about the countryside of other countries, but as far as the countryside of my country is concerned, one has to be extremely lucky to find any good hotels there, and I knew that too well too. But, what I didn’t know was that I also one day would need to stay at a hotel in the countryside, and that too at a time when the weather was rather hostile.

Oh, by the way, it was because of this hostile weather that I and my cousin had to spend the night at that hotel. In fact, the temperature was below the freezing point which rarely happens in the countryside where my cousin lives. But, even when it happens, the heating system works just fine to keep the residents warm and safe except on that occasion. In other words, we needed to rush to a nearby hotel because the heating system of my cousin’s house stopped working. After all, we didn’t want to freeze ourselves to death or get sick in such cold weather!

But, thankfully, we didn’t really need to spend more than one night and a day at that hotel because the weather eventually got better the very next day. Besides, my cousin had managed to arrange for an expert the very next day who was able to fix the problems with his heating system. Another reason, why we checked out of that hotel after spending only one night was that it had very crappy service, and they were charging way too much for the services that they were offering. We were lucky that we did not have to stay there for more than just a night!


Sample Answer 2:
First of all, I'd like to thank you for allowing me to talk about a hotel where I have stayed for just one night. Here goes the story:

Two years and a few months ago, I took the opportunity to visit India, and I landed in Siliguri in Darjiling. During my stay there, I had the pleasure of staying at a nice hotel. The name of this Hotel was "The Loft Hotel".

The hotel was situated in a spectacular mix of legendary sights and natural beauty, designed and dedicated for both domestic and international guests. The hotel was in Siliguri, Darjiling, in West Bengal, India. I happened to reach the area at night and this was something that popped up on my mobile when I searched for a nearby hotel in my Google Search Engine.

The main reason I decided to stay just one night at this hotel was that my main travel itinerary was to visit New Delhi, Goa, and Kolkata. However, I stayed a night and a day in Shiliguri and that's why I stayed in the area for just a day. The hotel was nice, and if I had stayed more than one night in Shiliguri, I would have considered staying in the hotel for more than one night.

Well, my stay at this hotel in Siliguri, India was brief but memorable. The location, amenities, and service provided by the hotel staff were all top-notch, and I would stay there again if I ever visit this part of India.

And that’s exactly how I succeeded in achieving a goal recently, which I otherwise thought was not possible.

When I was browsing the CNN.com (in fact I visit the website at least twice a day), a news story titled - ‘How to lose a job in 30 seconds’ attracted me.
