When we go away on holiday, we rarely think about the past a hotel may possess. While some hotels are modern and filled with luxury, others which have stood against the test of time have terribly dark secrets. These are the kind of places paranormal investigators love to take people on tours – but would anyone really dare stay the night?
Quite often these hotels have that one room everyone shares urban legends about. Whether these stories are made up or have to be seen to be believed – these following hotels have sent guests running from their doors screaming. You would be a brave soul to take a bed and breakfast in any of these places.
11. Borden House – Fall River, Massachusetts
Borden House is a B&B known for its bloody history. It was the scene of one of America’s most notorious murder cases – the Lizzie Borden case. On the 4th of August, 1892, Abby and Andrew Borden were murdered with an axe in their home. Sustaining a substantial twenty-nine blows, the couple’s daughter, Lizzie, was found responsible despite lack of evidence.
These days, you can rent out Lizzie’s bedroom or her parent’s bedrooms for the evening, eat the breakfast that served as their last meal in that very kitchen, or even get married in the room they met their demise.
10. Hotel Provincial – New Orleans, LA
The Hotel Provincial can be found in the voodoo laced New Orleans, LA. Sitting on the burned down site of a military hospital last used in 1722, this creepy place has had guests mention sightings of ghostly soldiers. One woman even reported she had been dragged out of bed by a hand and pulled across the room kicking and screaming.
Another instance of the strange military man happened a short time later, with one traveller claiming to have seen him in her wardrobe wearing full army attire before vanishing into thin air.
