Haunted Motel in Abilene
The Travel Lodge Motel in Abilene, Texas is said to be haunted. Aside from "off and on" flickering bathroom lights in one motel room, another room is said to have a spirit that loves to play poker under the bed, with visitor's belongings.
In a third room, it's said that between the hours of midnight and 2:30 a.m., a foul smell becomes present, supposedly it's the poker playing ghost.
It's been reported that a mysterious man in green, wearing a ball cap that covers all of his face except for his red beard, works the office of the motel, checking in customers in the early morning hours. Trouble is, no men were employed at the motel at the time this has occurred, yet he carries a set of keys. Later, he is no where to be found.
If you travel to Abilene, be sure to stay at the Travel Lodge Motel but a word of caution, watch out for the clerk in green and keep your credit cards, money and driver's licenses put away. Your belongings might end up lost in a game of poker... under the bed.
