My first (and not my last) tour of this amazing historical place was AWESOME - being a person that can see Spirits, I saw activity that didn't capture on pics - but I now know the difference appearance of a Spirit that does not accept they are dead ~ wow ~ thankful y'all are saving this historical place for future generations. I will be back!

This is our newest spirit to come forward! The woman taking the picture of herself in a mirror only had one other person standing next to her on the right. The tall man who has his hand reaching towards her was NOT in the room when she took the picture!!!! Notice his ripped worn pant legs, his height and how large his hand is. We have been communicating with him and he has actually replied to questions by WHISTLING which we have captured on audio. He calls himself Sam.

​Just left the Magnolia Hotel. Let me tell you. It was pretty active tonight . I honestly went in as a skeptic. In two hours that changed. I had one experience where one of the little girls ( not itzie) Emma I believe gave me with chills down my neck, shoulders and arms. Hair standing up . It was like being lightly touched with electric currents but In a calm peaceful way. Ticklish way. The ball did move and we all saw it. This is the real deal. Erin is an amazing sweet beautiful woman woman with the sweetest soul. My husband and I will for sure be back. One of the absolute best experiences ever!!!​​

​​​I've never been anywhere where there is this much paranormal activity. I kept saying my camera was going wonkers because it kept snapping photos on its own. It was an amazing experience. I can't wait for October 24th!

I visited with my wife on 2/18/16 for the 7pm tour. It heard the history, felt a presence, saw Emma make a ball move, but the reading, then seeing the orbs around me in various pictures from other cameras not just my own know there is a presence as I call it. Thank you for the experience. Humbled.

So much fun. Erin and Jim were great, so much history and so much activity going on. My Grandmother actually came through during some readings Erin did, and she was spot on. My friend and I had a blast!!! Would definitely do it again.

We came to the hotel for a meet and greet with Nick Groff, after seeing the inside and watching the Ghost Adventures episode on the hotel, we were intrigued to make a return for the actual tour. Erin is so resourceful and up to speed on her history of the hotel. Her true belief in the place makes even the skeptic question "could this be real?!". From beginning to end, this tour is so interesting & fascinating, you won't be disappointed. There is no doubt that my husband and I will return for another tour.

​I absolutely love the hotel. I've been back twice in two weeks. Erin makes you feel welcomed and like family. I was there today and already can't wait to go back.
