My husband and I were traveling back from vacation in Nashville. My husband wanted to stop in Bloomington Indiana on the way home (I can’t remember why just now – knowing him it had something to do with sports). Anyway, it was getting late and we were looking for an inexpensive motel to stay at for the night.
We found one off the beaten path so it was not a well known chain or anything. It was small, rather run down looking but affordable. I said I wonder if they have a room with a king sized bed as we had never slept in a bed so big I thought it would be something different to do.
We got a room with a king size bed and in we trekked with our luggage. I did not like that room at all. It had an oppressive feel to it. My husband even stated; this room seems stuffy and opened up windows and curtains to let in fresh air even though it was dark outside. There were few cars in the lot and no-one was out and about.
I drew the curtains in the room just a bit and went into the bathroom to take a shower. My husband had stretched out on the bed and was watching TV.
We both heard a clunk sound but had no idea where it came from. My husband� said it sounded like it came right from the room and to me I thought it was the room above us instead. I finished my shower and was combing out my wet hair and I swear I saw someone behind the shower curtain through the mirror! I jumped and ran out of the bathroom! I asked Rich (my husband) to please shut the curtains all the way and I went back in to the bathroom. I opened the shower curtain and finished up in the bathroom.
When my husband was getting ready for his shower he asked me why I left the curtain open and I replied, “oh I forgot to pull it shut.”
I heard the water turn on and soon after I heard a thud as he ran out into the room, “you weren’t just in the bathroom were you?” he asked me dripped wet and wide eyed. I really felt guilty about not telling him what I thought I saw and why I had left the shower curtain open. I had figured I was just tired from traveling all day and my eyes were playing tricks on me.
Clearly he could see that I was relaxed on the bed watching TV, “No; why?” I asked him… “I swear I just saw the shadow of a person in the bathroom through the curtain!” he huffed… “Maybe your eyes are just tried from being on the road all day?” I suggested to him but he said No he saw what he saw. I told him I’d go back in with him but he said no he’d be okay.
After his shower we decided to go get something to eat. We decided to get it to go as we were pretty tired. We got back into the room and that same oppressive feeling came over me. I didn’t want to say anything as to worry Rich and disturb his rest.
All night we pulled the covers back on us thinking the other one was hogging them; but remember we had a king size bed and plenty of huge covers. I think whatever was in the room was trying to pull the covers off us. I awoke 1/2 thru the night freezing but the air was on low. Finally my husband admitted; “I felt something when we first got in this room; something tragic has happened here.” The cat was out of the bag; he too felt a presence.. I turned on the bathroom light so we were no longer in total darkness and we slept ok after the light was on.
The next morning when we returned the key the manager asked how we slept in there and we said , “OK but the room was real cold.” he said, “Hmmm, we just renovated that part of the hotel.” all the way home we wondered why that part had to be renovated and what had happened to that part of the hotel; especially in the room we had.
