  1. My husband and I were trying to find a hotel to stay at on our wedding night (this was back in 2007) We checked out a ton of hotels, but felt this one was a little creepy. We got the feeling that it was haunted not just by how it looked, but also how it felt. It had an eerie feeling in the elevator, hallways and rooms. My husband and I both saw the curtains move in one of the suites that we looked at. We got the feeling that something made it move and it wasn’t us b/c we were not even near it to bump it. We got out of there as fast as we could.

  2. I stayed at this hotel around 2005, but it was a Ramada at the time (same hotel). I hadn’t heard anything about the hotel’s history until after I got home. I was there on business. I woke up in the middle of the night twice. The first time to use the bathroom. When I was in the bathroom, I had footsteps from the other part of the room where the bed was. I went back into the other part of the room, and when I did, I heard something fall in the bathroom. I checked and nothing was disturbed or turned over. Later in the night, I woke up feeling like someone had their hands placed on my chest. At that point it was very late, and I had an early morning. I actually got down on my knees and prayed. I went back to sleep and nothing else happened the rest of the night.

  3. My wife and I booked a weekend get away at this hotel. We seen it listed in the top 10 haunted hotels in the united states. We were able to request the room where the killing took place. It was a nice, older hotel room. We did not here or feel anything. We tried using a voice recorder and came up with nothing. When we went out for a late dinner we left a toy bowling game set up on the floor. We figured it’s Wisconsin. Bowling was and still is a recreational pastime. When we came back from dinner the ball was in a different location and two pins were on their side. The rest of the night we did not experience anything else.

  4. My wife and I had rented the honeymoon suite for our wedding in June 2007. We spent the night of our wedding there and I awoke to talking early in the morning. 3 am maybe. I thought I had the TV on, but I was now fully awake and the TV was off. But, it was an odd muffled conversation between two male individuals as I can recall. It was very close, but yet seemed far away as if in a different room. But like they were right in front of you. Went back to sleep. In the morning, my wedding party came over to our room for breakfast. I had the TV on and we were lounging on the sofa and love seat and other furniture. The TV unit had a cabinet surrounding it, with a closing door around it. ie, if you want to watch TV open the swinging door, if not close it. Anyway, while watching TV, the door closed in on the TV and then reopened on its own. I asked if I was going insane and every one else confirmed that they saw the same as me. Also, my wedding party said that they had some strange things happen independently. I believe this is the 5th floor. Top floor. Someone said something about a room on the 4th floor. Anyway, the hotel is awesome, I had no bad vibes until I got to the top floor. Then it just got weird.
