To the answers: The song is attributed to:Don Felder, Don Henley, and Glenn Frey as writers.

To be on a dark desert highway could mean that you are drugged.

The hotel could stand for a clinic!

The person at the entrance could be a guardian.

If you try to overcome your addiction, it’s not very pleasant.

The place seems,to me, not for holidays but to work hard.

Some want to remember what they have done others don’t want to remember.

The “sick” are in that place unless the change life. Usually they don’t succee in changing!

In the 6os the young people didn’t want to have authorities and this was the consequence.
