Tucked away in the Downtown Historic District of Mobile, Alabama, the Malaga Inn makes the short list of most haunted hotels in Alabama. Originally built as twin town houses by two brothers during the Civil War, the two buildings that make up the property have changed hands several times since. Today, the town houses are connected, and 39 rooms and suites overlook the central courtyard that once separated them. More than a century’s worth of history haunts guests, even despite renovations.
Tunnels still run under the two buildings, and they may have something to do with the hotel’s paranormal occurrences. The current owners believe the tunnels were used by Confederate soldiers to hide during the war, and their coming and going may be responsible for the mysterious movement of beds and other furniture around the hotel.
Additionally, guests report lamps becoming unplugged and unusual swaying of the chandelier that hangs in the lobby. Most notably, though, is the Lady in White.
Originally spotted walking the veranda of Room 007, the mysterious figure comes and goes with no apparent rhyme or reason. Her visage has been reported through the years by hotel staff and guests, and a sighting her is sure to be a highlight for ghost-seeking visitors.
This is a great and beautiful hotel to stay in but it is haunted while working late night I heard noises and saw a lady walking past the front desk.
Very loud noises in the early hours from above our room at 2.30am…woke us up. Still not sure if they were human…they were having a great time if you know what I mean :/ We were in room 117 on the ground floor.
Definitely haunted. I stayed at the Inn on a work trip because the rates were cheap. I was very paranoid about locking the door and making sure it was shut tightly before leaving in the mornings due to traveling with valuables. The 2nd day I arrived back at the hotel after work and the door to my hotel room was wide open. I was angry because it had to be housekeeping and reported it to the front desk but after checking the cams none of the staff had cleaned the room (covid policies). All of my valuables were still there.
