After a questionable first episode, I ended up really enjoying Hotel. The vampires were inexplicably sloppy and Angela Basset's version of campy acting is horrendous compared to Jessica Lange's (definitely missed her in this season, but there really wasn't a part for her), but there were so many good things to make up for it. Most of the characters and storylines ended up being very engaging, Lady Gaga was quite impressive, and it was a treat to see Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters playing against their usual types.
Though there never really was a satisfying explanation of where that thing with the corkscrew strap-on came from. Supposedly Sally "summoned" it, but what was it, where did she summon it from, and how? Everything else that manifested inside the hotel was explained so neatly, but not that.
