Howard Johnson Inn - Econolodge

You are here Home  > Hotels and Inns >  Howard Johnson Inn - Econolodge

Formerly Howard Johnson Inn but noe EconoLodge, this hotel is said to be very active with the spirit set. In a room at the end of the second floor, red eyes have been reported, and someone (or something) has been heard in that room when it was vacant. The apparition of a cowboy has been seen in the lobby, bar, and pool area. On the second and third floors, room doors open and close even when the entire floors are vacant. A misty figure has been spied flying down hallways, and according to reports, this is only the tip of the iceberg.

      I have thought about staying here because of the hauntings but I don’t really believe the “white mist” but that is just my opinion

  3. I had a young man come by my shop looking to buy some sage for cleansing. He said he had stayed at the San Angelo Econolodge to see if it was truly haunted, after some friends had shared their experiences with him. They claimed to have experienced demonic activity there, and this guy decided, unwisely, to stay a night there on his own and see if he could provoke anything into proving its existence. I don’t know all that happened, but he did say that he woke the next morning with a rune of destruction scratched into his wrist. He said it burned and ever since everything in his life seemed to be going wrong. DCWell, yes. If you play with fire you will get burned.
