Ghosts at the Historic Santa Maria Inn

by Diane
(Los Angeles California)

My ghost story happened at a hotel called The Historic Santa Maria Inn. I was in town for a graduation which means June weather was nice. Went to the graduation that day. Came back that evening to my hotel room. It was pretty late, 12 midnight, said good nights to family, went to my room.

Well the room at the Santa Maria are pretty cool. It was a place for travelers to stay on their way to San Francisco. Many a Hollywood legend has stayed there from Rudolph Valentino to Clark Gable to Johnny Depp. A lot of the rooms have the name of the star or starlet that has stayed in that particular room.

My room was Jean Harlow. I really didn't really give it any thought. I was watching TV. In the corner of the room that I was sitting all of a sudden got really cold. "Okay," I thought. I left the window open. No window open. I didn't have the AC on. I just could not explain why it got cold.

I walked to the other side of the room, normal temp. Went into the bathroom, normal temp. It got so cold in the corner of the room that I had to put on the heater. There was no rational explanation.

I thought maybe something was trying to show its self to I grabbed my camera. Tried to take a picture and it wouldn't work. I had just used it for the graduation earlier that day. Okay, changed the batteries just to be sure. Still wouldn't work. The corner stayed cold about an hour and the room went back to normal temp.

I really wish I could have seen something that night. I would have asked the ghost a question or two.
