Rumor has it that at this site, a man once committed a double murder. It’s said that he found his wife together with another man in a hotel room, and shot and killed them both. Witnesses say the spirit of the man who was shot still remains behind, turning the lights on and off and walking audibly through the halls.

According to reports, this motel was seized by the government for drug offenses, and was auctioned off in 2010.

  1. several drug overdoses occurred here. The motle has since been torn down and rebuilt into something new, but with all the tragedy and violence occurring here, I wouldn’t doubt the land being still stained with unfinished business and untimely death.
