Mobile’s Malaga Inn nominated for USA Today’s Best Haunted Hotel
MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) – One of Mobile’s most popular hotels has been nominated for USA Today’s Top 10 Best Haunted Hotels. Malaga Inn could be one of the top 10 if the hotel gets enough votes.
Malaga Inn was built in 1862 as twin houses by two brothers-in-law, according to the hotel’s website. The townhouses were eventually sold by the family and changed owners several times before being purchased by the current family in the 1960s. The hotel also houses underground tunnels, which the owner says were used during the Civil War as a hiding place for soldiers.
According to the USA Today website, Malaga Inn is the home of a ghostly woman who was seen pacing the balcony of Room 7. Other guests saw chandeliers swinging and lights flickering on and off. .
Of course, if you stay at the Malaga Inn, you probably know that people think we are haunted. Although we didn’t see any specters wandering our halls, some guests swear they saw and heard spooky things. After a long day looking for ghosts, you might find one in your room at the Malaga Inn!
