When I called it a "bummer of an episode," I meant that the characters all experienced some depressing events. It was indeed an interesting show, but if Nikki and Vanessa don't come back, I'm out for next season.
I agree that the PQ of this show is, at least occasionally, pretty poor. I think it's exacerbated by the fast pans and in scenes where the fake hotel is featured prominently. NBC was tagged as the "worst HD" network in a poll here earlier this year, but some series' ("The Office" comes to mind) have been lauded for superior picture.
