Would you stay overnight in the 1840's Magnolia Hotel

that has been labeled

"The Most Haunted Hotel in Texas"?

​If your answer is YES, then continue reading!

    After 6 years of lovingly restoring this amazing 1840's historic stagecoach station, frontier hotel, saloon and brothel, owners Jim and Erin Ghedi have finally decided to allow overnight stays.  They BEGIN taking reservations on AUGUST 12! The link to make reservations will be placed on this website. One to four guests only will be able to stay overnight in their newly restored second floor single 2 bedroom suite.  The period decorated single 2 bedroom suite has been fully restored to its original glory days from 1850-1890. Come take a step back in time as you stay in the beautiful single suite that consist of 2 bedrooms (1 king and 1 queen) with an adjoining door, a comfortable living room with a TV and DVD player. There is a full size bathroom with a modern walk-in shower in the suite which includes basic complimentary toiletries, a hair dryer and of course towels. The non-working kitchen includes a fold-out table and 4 chairs, microwave, coffee maker and mini-refrigerator. Coffee supplies are provided along with bottle water. A light continental breakfast is included in your stay consisting of juice and pre-packaged pastries. The suite has central air conditioning and heat. It is a self check-in stay with a code provided for your entrance. You will be able to pre-purchase items popular at the hotel such as our "I Survived the Haunted Magnolia Hotel T-shirts", "Emma's little Secret" documentary on DVD signed by the producers, any or all of the owner/author, Erin O Wallace's signed books Haunted New Braunfels, Haunted Seguin, and the most SPINE CHILLING book of all  "Mysteries of the Magnolia Hotel."

    The Magnolia Hotel is located in Seguin's charming Historic Downtown District. The beautiful town square located just steps from the hotel is absolutely stunning at night. Twinkling lights hang from the majestic Oak trees. During the day the square offers historical markers and a gorgeous water fountain to sit by. You can let your imagination go free and give thought to what it was like when the town was owned by the original Texas Rangers. There are several shops, restaurants and a museum all within walking distance to make your visit worth the trip.


Though our 13 spirits have been very kind to Jim and I please understand, we have NO control of them! Several of our spirits residing at the hotel often come out day and/or night. We are NOT responsible nor give refunds for the actions of these spirits or absolutely ANYTHING involving them. We do NOT give refunds if you decide it is too frightening for you. If you believe that a spirit can attach them self to you and might go home with you, then simply do NOT stay. Just keep in mind, they have resided here for over 179 years, their dilapidated hotel/home (destine for demolition) has been rescued and beautifully restored plus the current owners of the hotel highly respect them. Why on earth  would they want to leave!
