This is a personal experience that me and my family had in a hotel in Ohio. I was only about 5 years old at this time. When we first arrived at the hotel it seemed nice. It had a giant hallway, a large staircase, decent rooms as well as an indoor pool. I believe it was sometime in the afternoon when we were just sitting in our room. Suddenly, we heard the laughs and giggling of 2 little girls. It sounded like they were out in the hallway.
My mom, thinking that they must be headed to the pool, said that we should go out and swim so I could have someone to play with. When we left our room, there was no sign of anyone besides us in the hotel. A little confused, we went back to our room. The next day, we were checking out of our room getting ready to leave. My mom said to the lady at the desk "The little girls upstairs were running through the halls all night" the lady just looked at her and said, "no one else is in the rooms upstairs".
After that, we were even more confused and didn't know what to think. We clearly heard them, as if they had been inches from our door. My aunt did work there for some time, so after we left we immediately told her our odd story. She seemed pretty surprised, and then she asked, "You don't know about the stories of the hotel?" There were rumored to be 2 little girls who died in a fire at that hotel. There were many people that said they could hear the laughter of them still in the halls. After that, we were all completely freaked out. Apparently, the hotel was rumored to be haunted. We had no idea the entire time we were there. This may seem like a pretty cliche story, but it happened to me and I found it very creepy, and it's something I will definitely never forget. I now know there is something at that hotel, and we most definitely never went back after that.
PS: I'm sorry that this was so short, but these are all the details surrounding what happened.
Thank you for taking the time to read it!
