Santa Fe Inn

In the year 1997 I was passing through a town called Winnemucca when I stayed at a hotel called the Santa Fe Inn. I was checked into room 136. As soon as I walked in I felt a little weird about it, but I had been driving all day and ignored it. I settled in and began watching television, it began fuzzing out ever so often. Again I just ignored it. About 30 minutes later it had gotten to the point in which I had to shut it off it had gotten so bad. I herd knocking on the door so I got up immediately to answer it. But there was no one to be seen. I ignored it. I picked up a few pieces of trash to throw away. When I herd knocking again I stopped and went over to the door as quick as possible so I would catch who was doing it before they had time to run. the knocking was very loud as if it were the police. The knocking had just barely stopped as I opened the door not a person in this world could have blinked between the knocking and me opening the door. Again no one. I walked across the street to the office and told them. They said its probably nothing, so I walked back. As I was about to open the door the six had fallen off the door and cracked. As I put my key in and put my hand on the door to open it I was shocked lightly. I walked in and the television was back on… just fuzz. I shut it off and I turned around and saw a black shadow walk across the room. I packed my bags checked out and left to stay somewhere else. I will never forget that stay at the Santa Fe Inn.
