Looking for a really scary place to get away this weekend?
The Bates Motel, California: This mother-and-son-run motel is ideally located for travelers looking for a stop-off between Arizona and California. The son is very attentive and prices have been slashed for the Halloween weekend. Just don’t use the shower.
The Overlook Hotel, Colorado: The Overlook is a grand old hotel that offers privacy, isolation and potential insanity. Built on an ancient Indian burial ground, it offers many new experiences. Watch out for the slightly overzealous caretaker – it will take more than a lock and a ‘do not disturb’ sign to stop him carrying out his chores.
Backpacker Hostel, Slovakia: Americans and Europeans alike enjoy activities such as spa, torture, sauna, abuse and a late check out – although the backpackers rarely check out on time anyway.
The Sedgewick Hotel, New York: Following extensive re-modeling of the 12th floor, The Sedgewick is back in business! The hotel would like to deny all rumors of ghosts inhabiting the hotel and eating guest’s meals. The ballroom is also expected to be available for hire again soon for bookings following ‘planned’ refurbishment.
Camp Crystal Lake, New Jersey: Initially closed in 1957 following the tragic death of a young boy who drowned in the lake the camp had an attempted re-opening in 1980 which proved unsuccessful due to a number of machete related accidents (claiming the lives of all of the camp workers). The Camp is once again open and offering special rates on Fridays for attractive but slightly stupid teenagers.
