(Some Gimpy Guy)   Make sure to look at the pictures of these jailhouse hotels before you make reservations. They earn a Spiffy tag for the vanilla "Arrest me officer" fuzzy pink handcuff tourists, but an Ironic tag from the dungeons and zipper mask crowd   (loveexploring.com) divider line

They're nice, but no Riker's Island.

I'd stay in one. I like staying in unique places, not cookie cutter chain hotels.

Room service would not open the door and let me out, zero stars.

The problem with staying in a prison in Slovenia is that they take away your belt, your shoelaces and your vowels.

The Liberty Hotel in Boston looks amazing.

Couldn't find rates on their website other than pets are $100 a day though so I suspect I can't afford humans.

I've stayed at the Liberty in Boston, it was nice. Some of these others... I'm not sure I'd be interested.

It's part of a Penn Jillette libertarian fantasy he shared on his radio show. After they legalize all the drugs, you're going to have a lot of empty jails. Rip out most of the doors and turn them into shelters for the unhoused.

For extra authenticity, special orders are transported to your room in some guy's ass.

Just don't drop the soap in any of them.

He must have forgotten that they are run by the governments and helping poor people is not what they are in the business of doing

Don't drop the complimentary soap.

The "OWK" (wikipedia link) seemed to be a nice hotel for the "dungeons and zipper mask crowd". Too bad they closed.

I see this place at work every day.  The former Portsmouth Naval Prison.  I would love to be able to do something like this with it and save the building.  Sadly, it sits empty and unused because of all the asbestos in the place.  There have been groups which have looked at rehabbing it, but gave up due the costs of having to clean up the site.  As well as the limited accessibility, due to being on an island which is home to a repair facility for nuclear subs.

Wasn't that where they filmed the end of The Last Detail?

Decades ago when I was in Scouts, our troop did a whole go to Ottawa for a week and taking in all the sites. We stayed at the hostel in this article. It was cozy enough. 6 people to a cell with a bunk and a locker. The common areas were clean if spartan. You did have to walk past the gallows to get to the bathroom on the floor we were staying on though, so kinda creepy if you had to take a wee at midnight.

On Thursday night they serve a wicked pepper steak. It can't be as bad as the cabbage rolls at the Terre Haute Federal Pen. Or that oatmeal at the Cook County slammer.

I'd order the turducken just to see someone try to deliver that.
