These 10 Haunted Hotels In Virginia Will Make Your Stay A Nightmare

It’s been said that Virginia is one of the most haunted states in the nation – and given our history, including the Revolutionary War and Civil War, it’s not too much of a surprise that a few spirits might be hanging around.  I don’t know much about ghosts, but from what I understand, they don’t always appear on command. Which is fine with me, but if ghost hunting is your kind of thing, what could be better than actually staying for the whole night at a place that is said to be haunted? These 10 hotels in Virginia, many of them historic, have all been the site of reported paranormal activity – from things that go bump in the night to full-on hauntings of the Scooby-Doo variety.

Fortunately, it would seem that most of our haunted hotel ghosts are the friendly types. But that’s not to say that if I saw or heard any of them during my stay, I wouldn’t be spending a very sleepless night — most likely locked in the bathroom. But for those of you with less sensitive dispositions, I would love to know about any experiences you may have had — at these hotels or any others. Tell me your stories in the comments below!
