This 1920’s style hotel was recently refurbished, which appears to have stirred up a whole lot of paranormal activity. Workers renovating the building reported that their tools would go missing, and that they would occasionally catch of a mysterious woman in a white dress on the seventh floor, who vanished when they approached her.

  1. I stayed in the hotel on the 7th floor with a girlfriend of mine. We were having a girls weekend away at the beach. We did not know the hotel was haunted until after the things we experienced. We were so excited we got upgraded to a balcony room on the 7th floor because our original room wasnt ready yet. The first night of our stay we noticed the air conditioner thermostat kept turning down low and then going back up very slowly. It was very odd and we thought oh its just old and must need fixing. Well that same night my friend went out on the balcony to get some fresh air and the balcony doors flung open and hit her foot badly causing her to start bleeding. It was very odd because there was no wind but was exactly like someone invisible flung them open. We then were scared out of our minds but then just deciding we were probably just scaring ourselves and there was nothibng to be worried about. We turned off the lights but kept the tv on for some background noise and light. Just as i was drifting off to sleep i shot up in bed terrified literally. It felt like someone had ran there hand on and up my shin on my right leg. I was so scared and my girlfriend was crying bc she was so upset about it. We did not sleep much that night because of how scared we were. The next day we went to the beach and my friend kept trying to convince me we should checkout a day early. I was really bummed bc i came all the way from florida so getting away to a nice beachy town doesnt happen much for me. I kept telling her we will be fine and theres nothing to worry about trying to make it a more positive atmosphere because i wanted to stay and even told her we could ask for a different room. Well turns out we got back pretty late since we decided to take a last minute drive to siesta key. My friend stayed down in the lobby asking the front desk girl if we could switch rooms. When i took the elevator up to our room i got a really bad feeling i felt very un easy. My friend came up and told me the woman said unfort. We could not switch rooms at this hour. So then we decided to pack our bags and get the heck out of there. As we were taking the elevator down its almost like i could feel something was with us all the way to the lobby where we checked out. The girl gave us a funny look when we told her we wanted to check out at nearly 1am and as we explained why she told us a story about a construction worker that was working in the room across from ours experienced some strange things with watwr bottles hitting him in the back of his head and tools missing.she then told us shes also had reports of 2 men who experienced what felt like someone was sitting at the end of their bes. At that point i was completely creeped out thinking about the hand on my leg. Whatever was with us gave me a feeling it was with us even when we were loading the car. I had chills and never experienced anything like it. Had i known the hotel was haunted i never woukd have stayed.. esp the 7th floor which we were originally ezcited about not knowing the history. I guess if you like ghost kind of stuff this would be a great place to stay. As for us we will never be returning( not because the hotel was vad..just too haunted for me) haha.
