Atlantic Hotel: Haunting of Room 16
If you ask the staff of this haunted hotel to share their ghostly experiences, there’s a good chance the tale will start and end in Room 16. Many paranormal events have taken place in this seemingly normal space, from the small and weird, to the bold and absolutely terrifying.
The Upset Guest
One such story originates from the hotel’s General Manager. As the Manager of a hotel, it is your duty to know the happenings of the hotel at all times of the day. One such duty includes knowing which guests are staying in which rooms.
So, it came as a surprise to the Manager when a young woman walked out of Room 16. She had neither seen the woman before, nor had knowledge of a guest staying in that room. It was even more of an oddity that the woman seemed upset, demanding her bathroom be stocked with more towels.
The General Manager was unsure how this mix-up occurred, but knowing that the guest is always right, she quickly made her way to retrieve fresh towels for the distressed young woman.
In no time at all the General Manager had returned to Room 16 with an arm full of towels. She balanced the linens in one hand in order to knock with the other. But, before she could raise her arm, she realized that the door to the room was ajar.
Odd, she thought to herself. But, she knocked anyway, not wanting to intrude on the already bothered guest. After a few moments of waiting for a response that never came, she knocked once more. Again, she was met with silence.
Unsure of what was keeping the young woman so quiet, the Manager entered the room. But, as she did, it was obvious that the young woman was not there. Now realizing something was amiss, the General Manager quickly placed the towels in the bathroom, left the room and closed the door behind her.
The manager hurried back to her office, hoping to discover the young woman’s name in the daily guest log, and putting an end to the mystery. But, the information she found was not what she was expecting. No guest had been registered to Room 16 that evening, the distraught Manager had discovered. No one had checked in and none had checked out.
