    1. We were on a ghost tour and I asked my sister to take a picture of the to balcony. Something was drawing me to that area. She took two pictures each had a blue light in them.

      • I just did a ghost tour there last night. The picture I snapped of the front shows a white blurry mass, like spider webs, across the front of the hotel. Super creepy!

    2. Haunted USA TV show said it burned, killing 5children. Room 208 is said to be the most active. Hardly anyone makes it through the night there without something happening within the room.

    3. We frequent the quarter often. This is just one of the photos of this particular hotels. There’s another place that I’ve captured what appeared to be a moving apparition, although I don’t remember the name of the place nor do I remember what the building was for. Creepy stuff.
