Model Answer:

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!
