Critic Consensus: Room 104 uses its anthology structure to its advantage, telling a series of short, eclectic stories that hit their marks more often than they miss.

News & Interviews for Room 104: Season 1
The specificity of [the] characters hint even more at what makes this closed-off space even more dangerous territory.
The appeal of Room 104 comes from the same principle: The viewer's time with these odd, compelling characters is only temporary. The best episodes, like the best people, are the ones that leave you wanting more.
Even the slighter episodes don't feel like missed opportunities or wasted time: The passion is always present, which goes a long way on its own but is cleverly extended by the two showrunners.
As with any anthology series, the results are incredibly hit and miss but I appreciate the effort from the front of the room to the back.
Room 104 looks to be leading this charge and, like any forerunner of a new movement, is bound to exude as many flaws as it will inspiration. Still, despite its sickly lighting and outdated furnishings, this is a motel worth checking into.
