These 7 Haunted Hotels In Kansas Will Make Your Stay A Nightmare
The cooler it gets outside, the closer we get to creepy fall nights around a campfire. However, that’s still a couple months away, unfortunately. In the meantime, we’ll have to settle for creepy stays in some of Kansas’ most haunted hotels. Is this the nightmare hotel stay you have been hoping for?
7. The Drury Plaza Hotel - Wichita
This creepy hotel dates back to 1922, but don't let that fool you. The happenings here have been going on for a lot less time than that. They've nicknamed the spirit "Clarence" and he seems to be a mischievous one. He's known to make fake calls to rooms and the front desk and move items around in your bathroom. Lights and bedroom furniture aren't off-limits either, so maybe keep your belongings close by. Creepy!
6. The Weaver Hotel - Waterville
This hotel and restaurant are said to be haunted by two spirits. One is the wife of a previous owner, and the other is a man who killed himself after finding out his beloved didn't love him back. Sad, but spooky.
5. Midland Railroad Hotel - Wilson
It's said that a 1902 fire that gutted this building caused a few souls to perish and remain here to haunt the place. Today, guests that stay on the third floor report seeing phantom flames, smelling smoke, and ghosts in period clothing roaming the halls.
4. The Cherryvale Bed and Breakfast - Cherryvale
Previously known as the Leatherrock Hotel, this spot in Cherryvale is notorious for nighttime nightmare fuel. If you're scared of ghosts, that is. There's a ghostly dog, cat, and family that's said to live in the museum section, where the original owners used to live. There's been sightings of a dark shadowy figure accompanied by the voices of women. In the hotel section, there's been witnesses who report seeing a ghostly woman in white slamming doors and walking the halls. Super creepy!
3. The Eldridge Hotel - Lawrence
The legendary ghost here is actually named after the hotel, it's so notorious. The Eldridge Ghost's favorite room is 506, and guests can expect anything from shaking your bags to rearranging your furniture. They've heard it all, here at the Eldridge Hotel.
2. Glick Mansion - Atchison
Due to Atchison being the most haunted town in Kansas, it's not out of the ordinary that this Bed and Breakfast would be included. Tuck U Inn residents have reported things like doors opening and closing, footsteps where no one walks, and other creepy, unexplained happenings.
1. The Beaumont Hotel - Beaumont
Both residents and employees have been affected by the resident ghost they call Zeke. Allegedly, the first owner of the hotel shot Zeke in the late 1800s when his wife grew to fond of him. Today, "Zeke" moves chairs across the room, turning on clock radios, and hearing footsteps as if someone walked with spurs on their boots. I think that would be pretty creepy, don't you?
