Oh it was terrible, but the fun kind of terrible. Like if you love bad horror, and want to see bad CGI snakes eat people in a hotel, then it's going to be a fun watch. Some of the "TV effects" look like they're from a computer game even. I had fun, because it was bad horror entertaining.
The downside is there is a issue with sound quality, and the main bad guy is especially bad sound quality wise, because of the way she delivers her lines.
Some of the characters have just copyright dodging lines about other snake films, and other cheesy lines. The acting is a mixed bag, some characters had fun and really sold it. Others were decent enough.

No, just no...
Right, well with a title such as "Snake Hotel", and given the movie's cover, I must admit that I was expecting this movie from director Charles Solly to be in the likes of the many, many monstrous creature features that have been spewing out of the Chinese cinema these last couple of years.
However, it was not. Nay, instead I was treated to a very slow paced movie about prisoners being used as pawns in a game where they serve as fodder for a giant, mutated snake. Sure, the premise sounds interesting enough, except that writers Harry Boxley, Charles Solly and James Solly completely botched the formula and "Snake Hotel" ended up being a slow paced, boring and generic viewing experience.
There were a couple of familiar faces on the cast list, though I wouldn't be able to name the two ladies even if my life counted on it. But I have seen enough low budget and dubious movies and that is where I have seen them before. Yeah, you're not in for an evening of Shakespearian theater when you sit down to watch a movie like "Snake Hotel", but then again, would you expect to be? The acting performances in the movie were adequate enough, taking into consideration the limitations imposed on the actresses and actors from a subpar script.
Visually then "Snake Hotel" crashed and burnt. The CGI rendered snakes looked like some discarded CGI rendering from a 1990s computer game. It is simply beyond my comprehension how such poor and laughable CGI can get green-lighted in 2023.
This movie came and went without leaving a lasting impression. And if you enjoy creature features, don't bother wasting your time, money or effort on this movie from director Charles Solly.
In fact, the best thing about "Snake Hotel" was actually the cover/poster, which over-sold the movie by a million times. The snakes in the movie look nothing like that, and there is not that kind of action to be found throughout the course of the 84 minutes that the movie ran for.
My rating of "Snake Hotel" lands on a two out of ten stars.

In a time of unlimited scale of tv-channels, movies & the streaming-monster to choose from, here is Snake Hotel. Reality-tv-ish episodes in which voluntary (or payed perhaps) participants are challenging snakes in all shapes & sizes.
I couldnt stand watching almost 2 minutes of this kind of entertaiment. In todays standards of respecting all life and the living, flora & fauna, people are supposed to watch humans 'torturing' animals?
Realy, I always wonder where the budget is coming from to produce these kind of cheesy tv-shows. Or is Amazon (the main financier) doing so well to cut in its employers budget to fund Snake Hotel?
