  1. WE stayed here this past summer not knowing it was actually haunted. We did however get a little information on it after we checked in by the owner of it’s haunting past. I’m not one to believe in such things, but I will say, our family had a hard time sleeping, just know the history. lol. I was wide awake at 4 a.m. from footsteps within the halls.

  2. And now you know why I am hesitant to tell ghost stories. Yes, we will usually tell stories (all in good fun) because people ask us to. Is it haunted? Sure!

    I will happily charge you more for haunted rooms!

    If you dont like ghosts, I will happily charge you more for a non-haunted room!

    And remember, The Wells Inn is the grandest hotel in Tyler County! (We are the only hotel in Tyler County.)

    Charles Wells is said to have never left his beloved hotel and is still occasionally seen here. He likes to move things around and is known for strange noises he causes at night, particularly the sound of footsteps and a fountain pen against paper heard scratching in his former office. ​ In addition to Wells, other strange activity reported at the hotel include an elevator going up to the third floor when no one is there, doors opening and closing and the strange case of Room 324. At least one maid reported that the door was “stuck shut” after she finished cleaning the room. She tried three times to open the door only for it to open easily on the fourth try.

  4. I stayed here was in town on business some 25 years ago. My employer made the travel arrangements and I knew nothing of its history before staying there. One night the lights came on, the toilet flushed and there was knocking on the door but no one there. Upon eating breakfast the next morning, I mentioned what happened and was asked by the server what floor I was on. I replied 3 and was told that floor was “haunted”.
