"Jolly Lodgers" is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season twelve. In this episode, Squidward packs his suitcases as his house becomes infested, but a different kind of pest awaits him at the hotel.



Squidward's house has a fumigation tent put over it due to a sea urchin infestation. SpongeBob and Patrick believe it is a circus tent, and Squidward explains that he will be staying at a hotel.

At the hotel, Squidward is annoyed by the receptionist. He enjoys his room and takes a bath, which is interrupted by SpongeBob and Patrick running through the room. After his bath, he orders room service, which is delivered by SpongeBob and Patrick. He asks them what they are doing at the hotel, and they reveal that the annual Jelly-Con is being held there, with Squidward's room between theirs.

Squidward is annoyed by SpongeBob and Patrick at the hotel's spa, gym, and pool. He is unable to escape from them in the hallway, and is eventually brought into the jellyfishing convention.

Squidward wears a jellyfish costume and leaves the room. When the annual "jellyfish mascot hunt" begins, he is chased by the jellyfishers in the hallway. He finds a zapper built into the costume and electrocutes everyone, including SpongeBob, Patrick, and the receptionist. He calls the exterminators and has the hotel fumigated.

The jellyfishers all manage to evacuate, and SpongeBob hopes that Squidward is doing okay. Squidward is shown to be dancing in his room, wearing a gas mask.


The episode was confirmed by Vincent Waller on June 29, 2019.[3]
