You guys did a story on the haunted room at South of the Border. I am blown away! We thought we were crazy! We stayed there in 1996 when my son was 2. We were driving from Florida to New York and stopped there overnight. We stayed in the honeymoon suite because we thought, with the baby, it would be a bigger room.
During the night, I heard voices whispering in my ear from the headboard! It sounded like a man and woman. Every time I was just about to fall asleep it would happen. I don't think I slept a wink all night! I was so scared. Also, at 3 in the morning we heard a load knock on our door. My husband ran to open it, and no one was there! We were both very scared.
When we checked out, we told them at the front desk our experiences, and they said they never heard such a thing. All these years I thought I was crazy. I'm so happy that I wasn't alone. That this happened to other people. So thank you for your article. Much peace now...[maureen pata, 01/26/2011]
