1969 A group of motley individuals stops at night in the once popular hotel El Royale, located on the border of the states of Nevada and California.
In the building of the hotel gathered an inhospitable priest, singer Darlene, an energetic seller of vacuum cleaners and a suspicious girl from the South. Together with them, a young concierge conducts a night in the hotel. Each of them has something to hide, and each of them will have a chance to redeem past sins. But the situation is only complicated when there is an ominous but charming cult leader in "El Royale" who wants to get his own.
