Hotels in Ohio That are Really Haunted

If you're feeling particularly brave, and you're not afraid of what goes bump in the night, then spending an evening at one of Ohio's Haunted Hotels is the perfect way to test your bravery. As many legends begin, it was a dark and stormy night when many of the Haunted Hotels across Ohio gained their supernatural status, and many of these haunted hotels claim that visitors can still see, hear, and even touch the phantoms that plague their properties. Haunted Hotels can be a ton of fun to stay at, but if you're weak of heart, don't plan on sleeping through the night!
