This anthology is set at the title motor inn and looks at the shenanigans going on within three of its rooms. The first tale "Conduit" centers on a socially isolated man who increasingly favors his self-created world to the real one outside his rooms. There is little reason for him to leave as there he can find food and sex for money, and he can always rely on his disfigured buddy to keep him abreast of what goes on outside of his sequestered little room. The second story, "Kathleen" centers on a severely depressed woman who is persuaded not to kill herself by the man in the next room, a nightclub comedian. In the final vignette, "The Advantage," an outspoken, philosophical nightclub singer performs her songs, nearly gets raped, and later entices a young boy into bed.
