7 Haunted Hotels Around Rhode Island That Are Sure To Give You The Chills
Rhode Island has an awful lot of tragic history for the smallest state. There are hauntings of all types in parks, stores, and even a merry-go-round! But one great place to get up close and personal with a real haunting is a hotel. Whether there was tragedy related to the history of the building, or people passed away in the rooms, there are many ways for a hotel to experience spirit activity. We’ve compiled a list of seven haunted hotels that you can actually spend the night at in Rhode Island.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
1. Hotel Viking in Newport
Hotel Viking, 1 Bellevue Ave, Newport, RI 02840, USA
The old world beauty of this hotel that was built in 1926 by a band of successful merchants, is enough to make anyone want to spend the night. However, you might have to deal with the sounds of a loud party that guests can't seem to locate, along with frightening footsteps from nowhere and the occasional cold spot. Seems like the folks who enjoyed some time at the hotel many years ago simply don't want to leave! Book your stay at their
for a taste of the paranormal.
2. The Graduate Hotel in Providence
Graduate Providence, 11 Dorrance St, Providence, RI 02903, USA
Formerly the Biltmore (and still retaining its sign from those years,) this Providence hotel is thought to be one of the most haunted in Rhode Island. Built originally in 1922 and financed by a known Satanist, the hotel is said to have seen animal sacrifices, murders, and Satanic rituals in its early days that left behind some very miffed spirits. While your visit may be haunted, it certainly won't be lacking in luxury.

3. Castle Hill Inn in Newport
Castle Hill Inn, 590 Ocean Ave, Newport, RI 02840, USA
This stunning inn was built in 1875 and has seen so much over the years, once even being utilized as a naval base during World War 2. With all that history, it's hard to imagine a few spirits aren't lurking around. People report seeing the ghost of a woman who throws china, as well as that of the hotels founder. Seems like the perfect place to do a little ghost hunting in style to us. Book your stay on their
4. Jailhouse Inn in Newport
Jailhouse Inn, 13 Marlborough St, Newport, RI 02840, USA
The Jailhouse Inn is named as such because of it's long legacy as a jailhouse and later a police station. Built originally in 1772, the building retains a lot of the original aspects of the jailhouse, which may be why people who stay there claim to see a breeze blowing in rooms with shut windows and feel an eerie presence in the space. Whether you believe these claims or not, the Jailhouse Inn is a very cool place to
spend the night
5. Villa One Twenty in Middletown
Built in 1856 and historically registered, this inn has seen so much. Visitors claim to have seen the ghost of the original owner of the inn as well as heard a woman's voice without seeing anyone whom it may belong to.

6. La Quinta Inn and Suites in Warwick
This hotel has two well known ghosts you might be able to spot if you
spend the night
. Supposedly the spirit of a woman who took her life in room 316, as well as that of an older man who looks like a farmer that passed in room 506 have been known to make appearances to guests.
7. The Harborside Inn on Block Island
Harborside Inn, 213 Water St, New Shoreham, RI 02807, USA
Block Island may seem like too much of a vacation town for a haunting, but that's anything but true. The site of many shipwrecks, Block Island has a lot of haunted history, and the Harborside Inn is no exception. If you
reserve a stay
in room 302 you may be able to see a ghostly woman in a black dress, people have also reported feeling mysterious hands grabbing their waists or touching their backs.
