We stayed at a Holiday Inn in Phoenix. We were there for my daughter's gymnastics meet.
We did not embibe in any alcoholic spirits this night (someone asked me this once).
Around 4 am, we were both awake. Wide awake.
Mike went to the bathroom, and I was waiting for him to return. I was definitely NOT asleep.
I turned over towards the window, and there were 2 'beings' next to the bed.
They were all black.....I think with white eyes. Their skin was textured. They were not identical.
One was definitely different than the other.
I turned over quickly and I tried to yell, but was so scared I was only squeaking.
They moved right next to me, and one put his arm under me and around my side.
I tried to yell again, but again could only squeak....just louder.
I thought it was my imagination. I just kept telling myself there was really nothing there....but didn't really believe that.
Nothing moved for like 30 seconds, so I moved my other hand to the place where the 'beings' hand had been, to prove that it was just my imagination.
It was still there. I could feel the texture of the skin and the mass of a hand.
I then screamed for my husband. This scared me to death!! ......but he was 'occupied' in the bathroom.
I jumped up from bed, and the beings were gone.
My husband came out. He had heard the whole thing. I told him my story.
I didn't tell anyone else for at least 6 months.
I searched the internet for similar stories, but found none. I went to a TAPS event in Westfield, and talked to Steve Gonsalves and asked him if there was some sort of database where haunted locations are posted, and he recommended I look at www.shadowlands.com. There was nothing listed.
About 3 years ago, I was back in Phoenix. I searched out the hotel, with my husband and best friend along for the ride.
They waited in the car outside while I went in to ask the desk clerk if they had any similar stories or stories of hauntings, but he said he never heard anything like that, but he had only been working there for 6 months or so. I left if there......I gave up.
One day I plan to return to that hotel, stay in one of the ground floor rooms (I don't remember the room number but I know it was a ground floor room) and see if I can get some answers.
