This hotel is said to be haunted by the apparition of a lady wearing white in the basement, which once served as a ballroom. The hallways of the hotel are rumored to be haunted by a man wearing a suit and voices and eerie sounds can be heard as well. In the basement, the face of a man has appeared and shadowy apparitions have been seen in different parts of the building. Also, when no one was around, heavy breathing has been heard.

I worked at hotel Ottumwa 3rd shift laundry, so I was pretty much in the basement all night. The basement is an old ball room, Well I was down there folding linens and towels when in tne corner of my eye I saw someone walk past me and I could feel the breeze as it went by, i ignored it and about 10minutes later it happend again and the clip board that was on the table near me literally was thrown across the room. I ran up stairs to where the front desk attendant was, my face must have said it all, she said you must have met our ghostly guest! Then there was one day I was on the 3rd floor cleaning a room when I hear whistling, i go to look and nobody was there, i go about my business and hear it again just as I was finishing up and anout to leave the room, the door slams in my face.. I've had many experiences there but id be typing forever to tell them all..Posted 9/15/18
