"HOJO to Don Draper: Sorry about the pool, your next stay is on us."
That's the word from Howard Johnson after the "Mad Men" character had a motel meltdown on Sunday's episode of the AMC TV series. The getaway he planned with his young bride Megan to a fictional HoJo's in upstate New York went super sour after he arrived to find the pool was closed.
"We’ve all been there," says the hotel's statement sent Tuesday. "You plan a weekend away only to check in to your hotel and find that a much desired amenity — the hotel pool — is closed. It’s enough to make a man mad."
Of course much more went wrong — the neon-orange sorbet that matched the motel's decor (Megan hated it) and the Big Fight in the parking lot.
