The 169-year-old Magnolia Hotel, which many believe is haunted, will soon open its doors for overnight stays.
Owners Jim and Erin Ghedi, who bought the Seguin hotel in 2013, have been working for years to restore the second floor of the south section, hoping to book reservations.
After six years of setbacks due to what they say was an “explosion of paranormal activity,” the owners are happy to announce the hotel is ready to take reservations starting August 12, according to the Magnolia Hotel’s website.
Those who decide to stay overnight will be accommodated with a fully restored suite with two bedrooms, a living room, a non-cooking kitchen, a full bath and a walk-in shower.
There will be a limit of only four guests allowed at a time from Monday through Thursday. The hotel does not indicate price on its website.
Reservations can be purchased online through the hotel’s website at www.hauntedmagnoliahotel.com.
The Magnolia Hotel is said to have had 13 spirits identified, according to the website.
In 2012, the haunted hotel was listed on the “Most Endangered Places in Texas” and has since been featured on numerous paranormal TV shows such as “Ghost Adventures,” “Paranormal Caught on Camera” and “Ghost Brothers.”
Guided ghost tours will also be available to the public. Tickets can be purchased on the hotel’s website.
