A lot of people seem to think the back story of the hotel may have to do with the reported supernatural occurrences. Since the hotel was built in 1985, the original owner's three newborn infants died and an on-site barber's child died after falling into a well.

According to report, supernatural activity has since been reported in every corner of the hotel. There is even a section of the property that once belonged to a speakeasy and brothel during the Prohibition era -- what many claim remains to be the most haunted.

To date, there have been several other deaths have followed that tragedy, some accidental, others by murder, and many people have been reported missing.
