Hotel del Coronado

You are here Home  > Hotels and Inns >  Hotel del Coronado

The tales of the Hotel del Coronado are remarkably consistent and their ghost has a name: Kate Morgan a young woman who checked in to the Hotel del Coronado and committed suicide with a gunshot wound to her head. There is no suspicion that it might have been a murder as she was seen to be despondent and she had purchased the gun in town herself. Although she is said to primarily haunt the room she had stayed in (formerly Room 302, though it is now numbered 3312) her presence can be felt throughout the hotel. People claim to have seen her in hallways, in the shops and she is occasionally mischievous, knocking items off the shelves, moving items in her room, etc. Her room is apparently the most often-reservered room so if you are looking to do a paranormal investigation there, you may want to plan in advance.

    1. Well I am a san diego resident, and we were poking around town one day. Got to the hotel and decided to explore it. Knew the room and when we found it, the housekeeper was inside. Its an extremely tiny little room. We asked her if it was the haunted room, and she said yes. Im told there are actually two haunted rooms in this hotel. And the stories I heard about the female ghost (the other is male) were not of a happy mischevious ghost, but a violent one. We walked into the room, laughing and looking around. Went into the bathroom, just to peek in, and the light went on while were standing there talking. My female friend ran out of the room. True story. Wish it were more dramatic lol… but it did happen.

    2. We went to San Diego for spring break and we went to the Maritime Museum and at that museum you can go on a boat ride all the way to the Coronado bridge and back so during that boat ride our tour person on the boat was telling us the history about the buildings near by and he mentioned this hotel and that it is haunted and told us what room number but I can’t remember everything he said about the hotel but a movie had been made there and a ghost knocks things down in the building.

    3. We stayed in a room that wasn’t one of the “haunted” ones in May. Was watching Tv and all of a sudden my baby’s toy flew off the counter out of nowhere. Freaked me and my wife out. We both stared at each other and decided to go to the bar to “cool off” from the situation. Got drunk and fell asleep scared.
