This historic hotel was built in the 1890’s, and is believed to be haunted by Olive Kennie, the daughter of a former properties. Dressed in old-fashioned clothing, she has been known to appear in various rooms, hallways and the restaurant, although most of her appearances have been linked to Room #250. Guests staying in this room reported the toilet flushing by itself, the shower curtain twisting by itself and seeing the apparition herself sitting on their beds.

  1. I live in the Olive Hotel and as of late been having very weird things happen. I was away while my girlfriend was with her child in her high chair eating an watching a movie I came home to her sleeping an her daughter sitting next to the chair eating and a ceiling tile moved in the bedroom as if taking something out of atop of it. As I woke her up she asked if I took her out of the chair an I told her no an I even asked why she moved the panel an again she told me she didn’t. That was the first thing to happen. Other occasions happened while I was in the bathroom with the door shut an heard the door open,slam, an someone running. I figured my girlfriend got home an I opened the door an expected her there an no one was. Lastly tonight, I was going into the bedroom that had the panel move to turn on the light and as I was about to turn it on, the light fixture cover on the ceiling just shattered an fell to pieces on the bed. Scared me half to death. I can’t explain it just something just doesn’t seem right…

  2. Stayed there in 2009. When i checked in, the front desk clerk assured me my room was haunted & showed me a bookmarked page about the hotel from a book called “Haunted Montana.” I shrugged it off & didn’t believe him & went to my room. A couple hours later the tv shut off & all the lights dimmed way down. I went into the hall & all the lights were flickering, then the fire alarms went off. I went down to the front desk & clerk was on the phone & told me there was no fire it was just a problem with the alarm system. I’m an electrician & i can’t think of any reason a problem with the fire alarms would cause the lights to go dim.

    I decided that was a good time to go out for supper & when i said i was staying at the Olive, everyone i talked to said “you couldn’t pay me to stay there, that place is haunted.”

    When i got back to the hotel, everything was back to normal & the rest of the stay was uneventful. But what happened earlier still gave me an uneasy feeling the rest of the night.
