  1. Yes, its real. Actually there were two different women that killed themselves in the same stall. The stall is now borded from the inside, so no one can get in. My daughter and sister went in and took a picture with their phone over the stall, and my daughter caught a face. I’ll upload it when she finds it.

  2. I stayed at this hotl and unknowingly entered this bathroom and had an experience. I was pregnant and using the restroom. A stall further down (to my left) flushed and then about 10 seconds later the water (to my right) turned on, in the other room. I finished using bathroom and I then ran to the main door of the bathroom to see if it creaked, surely someone must have just peed, washed their hands and left. The bathroom door did creak when I opened it. So no one had been there and left. No one was there except me and I felt very odd about it afterwards. So I told my husband and googled it and saw that the bathroom was haunted. It is definitely haunted bc that never happened to me anywhere in my life.
