When factory worker Susan Sweeney (Mae Marsh) receives word that she has inherited half interest in a country hotel, she immediately heads out to see it. Unfortunately it's a run-down place located next door to a sleazy saloon, run by the other half-owner, William Kibby (Jack Dillon). But Susan is determined to turn the place around, and she does, closing down the saloon along the way. Austin Strong (Jere Austin), the attorney who handled the estate, has a sister, Miriam (Hazel Alden), who runs off with Dick Wellman (Arthur Houseman). A rainstorm forces them to spend the night at Susan's hotel and when she finds the page with their registration has been torn from the book, she believes it has been taken by Sam Tupper (John Sainpolis), who is trying to discredit Strong. Susan goes to Tupper's home with Wellman, and in the struggle between the two men, Tupper shoots himself. In order to save Miriam's reputation, Susan takes him back to the hotel, which compromises her instead. But Strong figures out the ruse, and decides that Susan is "all woman." The cameraman on this picture was Oliver T. Marsh, the brother of its star, Mae Marsh.
