The Monkees travel to New York to meet a young producer, Mackinley Baker, at The Compton Plaza Hotel. Unfortunately, they find Baker just about to be evicted out of the room and themselves without any money for a place to stay. So, the group holds on to the room while Baker visits his backer. When this does not work out, they try convincing members of the Millionaire's club across the street to back Baker's play.

Did You Know?
When asked, the front desk clerk tells The Monkees
that Mr. Baker is in room 304. The boys arrive to door 304, to which Mr. Baker answers and invites them all in. The manager and clerk upon arriving at room 304 knock, and upon entering, inform Mr. Baker and the band they all must vacate the room for non payment of rent! In the lobby, after informing the new guest that the room (304) will be available in just 5 minutes, the clerk and manager return to the room to evict the group.This time however the two men clearly arrive, knock on, and enter room 305. When the clerk leaves and returns with the doctor seconds later the door number on the open door again says 304. A short time later as The Monkees still waiting for Baker to return, Michael Nesmith
and Davy Jones
(while calling for room service) also have a discussion again stating that they are still in room 304, but are having room service delivered to room 305 - and when room service arrives room 305 is now directly across the hall. See more
