I do not like ghosts, so I didn't have the primo experience at the lovely Strater Hotel. However, if you are a ghost hunter, this is the place you need to be. They even have diaries on the bed for guests to record their supernatural sitings. I was not going to buy into this talk until my makeup case flipped off the nightstand and into the floor. Let's just say I stayed awake the entire night and was ready to get back on the tour bus the next day. It is a lovely old hotel with lots of charm. Just be sure to take some sage with you! Check out the front desk...and be sure to ring the bell! It looks like something out of Petticoat Junction!!!
