  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.
