Siesta Motel

This motel is said to be haunted by the spirit of an angry man who had been staying at the night there after a fight with his mother. And as it so happened, that night he was the victim of a burglary. The still-enraged man attacked the burglar upon finding him in his room, and the burglar killed him. His ghost is said to roam the motel hiding objects in strange places, whispering vulgar things, slamming doors, turning lights on and off, and even striking some witnesses. The unexplained and unsettling sound of crying and laughter combined also has been reported.
