Not very good for me as the guest cast and plot were pretty weak. The scientist character especially seemed less human than the CGI spiders. She's so concerned for her missing friend she goes over to bang on her flat door but her reaction to her death at the hands of a giant radioactive spider is 'meh she's dead, back to work then'. What?

Pretty disappointing. I still like the characters, but there's no reason a giant spider one shouldn't have a tight, satisfying plot. It wasn't burdened with introducing the characters, it didn't have to portray an exotic environment on a budget, it didn't have to lightly work around historical events. There's no excuse.
First Yaz's dad is collecting trash as evidence of a conspiracy but it's just normal trash that has no conceivable connection to the hotel. What is he supposed to suspect, that people are moving trash to an inappropriate location? It's just normal trash, there's no reason for him to think anything about where it's going.
Then by a astronomical coincidence their neighbor has a visitor who works on the spiders at the exact time Doctor Who comes to collect a package from that very apartment.
Then Graham runs up even though he doesn't know where Yaz lives and never called Ryan.
Trump get attacked by a spider in the bathroom and regrets losing his phone, but then never tries to contact the outside world after that.
After the bathtub spider attack, Doctor Who says that they need to go somewhere bright and busy, but Trump says No, they need to get as far from the spider as possible. Then Ryan says "I'm with him" as if there were two different ideas being presented. It's a deserted hotel. There no busy part of it.
They try to leave but Doctor Who says "These aren't normal spider webs. They know we're here and are trying to seal us in", but they are actually just normal spiders which grew too big and they are normal spiderwebs, just bigger.
So the fact that big spiders produce big webs makes Doctor Who say that they need to investigate.
Ryan and Graham trap a spider but Jade says "I've seen these before. Was that the largest one out there?"
It's exactly the same as the one from her friend's apartment, and they know there's a much bigger one that killed Kevin, which Graham and Ryan couldn't possibly capture!
Also, she's not in a laboratory, she's in a kitchen. What kind of tests is she going to do aside from just looking at it?
Meanwhile, Trump offhandedly remarks that he has a fully furnished panic room which he didn't mention when they discovered that they were trapped and never expresses an interest in actually going into it for safety.
Then they find Kevin's body and his gun which still has rounds in it even though he was conscious and mobile enough to grab for the cell phone when the spider was attacking him.
Doctor Who figures out some stuff about spider pheromones causing things outside the hotel and does some explanatory dialogue about every living thing having a desire to return to its home...Then decidedly says "Show me the panic room." as if she's drawn some conclusion from the irrelevant conversation they've just had.
Then they hatch a silly plan to lure spiders with music because spiders sense vibrations when hunting...? It works.
Except for the biggest spider can't breathe well enough to find the Grime. Trump kills the spider with an improbable gun, foiling Doctor Who's plan to herd the suffocating creature using a noxious spray.
Then they leave through the impassable spider webs, presumably.
