Once a popular tourist hotel, the old “Holiday Inn Oceanside” has been abandoned since it sustained severe damage in 2004 from both Hurricanes Frances and Jeanne. Local residents decry it as an eyesore. Several plans have been hatched to renovate and reopen the building, but to date none have succeeded. Some locals claim to have seen and heard strange things coming from the abandoned structure – lights are seen, voices are heard, and no one is sure whether these are local kids, homeless people, or… maybe something supernatural?
At least one person has claimed to have witnessed paranormal activity there, when a lamp was thrown forcefully to the ground by unseen hands.
