A guest staying at this hotel several years ago reported that the clocks would run backwards of their own accord, and that her children were frightened by the apparition of an old man that appeared in their closet. Upon speaking to management, she discovered that other guests had reported similar strange occurrences in separate rooms.

  1. I used to work there. I’ve heard several stories from other employees but also experienced some myself. An older woman could be heard in the lobby talking to someone but I and the other clerk were the only people in the building at the time. We looked at each other and I said, “Did you just hear an old woman speaking?” He said, “Yeah, I heard that too.” I searched just to be sure and there was no one there.

  2. About a decade ago, my then girlfriend–now wife–stayed at the Wakulla Motel. We didn’t hear or see anything. I remember when the Wakulla was an apartment building right up until the early 1980s, but the complex was built around 1962 of concrete block and steel reinforcement. It was considered the safest place to stay through a “Hurricane Party” and although no one was ever killed there. I just did due-diligence and found that no one was ever murdered or died there according to newspaper archives. In the 1970s the apartment complex was a favorite place for aging hippies and other misplaced young people of that era. There were some apartments that housed up to 15 people in a one-bedroom unit. Although there was a steady supply of LSD and marijuana dealt there in the 1970s, no one ever overdosed or died that I could find. My hunch is that the ghosts (if there are any) are at that complex then chances are that they used to live there prior to their deaths and had a wonderful time, so they decided to spend eternity at the beach. Not a bad life–if you’re a ghost or rich. Now the restaurant in Rockledge by the railroad tracks is another story. I’ve seen the woman apparition in mid-to-late 1900s Victorian style clothes in the women’s room and walking through the upstairs dining room just before closing. The problem is that almost as soon as I pulled my camera out, the apparition disappeared–as if she were afraid of being photographed? It’s hard to say. Another haunting I once experienced in the early 1970s when I was a student at Satellite High School. I was driving the old SR 3 road between Pineda and the Crooked Mile Cemetery and all of a sudden there was a Spanish Conquistador sitting on a white, armored horse right in front of me. I hit the brakes, but by the time I came to a halt, I had passed through the apparition with the car and it was just gone. I’d love to find the history of that poor Spanish soldier and why he continues to haunt Merritt Island for about 400 years?
