I'm going to tell you guys about a scary experience that happened to me two years ago. So this happened to me in Springfield, IL at Days Inn. My dad was working there at the time and he brought me and my brothers so we could go swimming in the pool.
After we swam, my dad told us about how one night he opened the janitor's closet and he saw a pair of glowing eyes in the closet. We thought he was joking. He wasn't.
At about 9pm, we saw a small black car so we thought our mom was there. We went running down the hall because we didn't want to leave. My brothers stopped about halfway through the hallway and I don't know why, but I kept going. I was standing there and I saw something out of the corner of my eye. It was a man. I clearly remember every little detail about him. He was a tall, blonde man dressed in a red shirt and beige pants. Something about him was really old fashioned and his clothes weren't modern. I stood there, frozen. I've never had an experience like that before! I couldn't move, I couldn't even speak. Then, I could suddenly move again. I turned around to look and nothing was there. I ran to the lobby as fast as I could. My brothers asked what happened. I told my dad and I was to the point of crying. I was 11 at the time.
I never went back to that hotel but my dad talked to some of the staff there as this old lady who has worked there for years said that she's seen the exact same ghost and she described him perfectly. She said she's seen more ghosts there and truly believes that days inn (in Springfield) is haunted.
