Haunted Hotels: 21 Spooky American Overnights (PHOTOS)

First Posted: 10/6/11 07:08 AM ET   Updated: 10/6/11 05:25 PM ET

Halloween season is here again and hoteliers are buying fake cobwebs and orange balloons in bulk.

Without knocking the Oriental Trading Company's fine products, we would like to suggest that horror can't truly be manufactured. It has to be found, which is where the nation's ghost-riddled and eerie hotels come in.

From the famously odd Hawthorne Hotel in the witchy town of Salem, Massachusetts, to some surprises -- hello, scaredy-cat MLB players -- this list is perfect for anyone looking for a one-night stand with the bizarre.

The Lemp Mansion, St. Louis



This quirky hotel in St. Louis offers "paranormal tours", which come complete with appetizers, a drink of choice and, of course, the use of an infrared camera to take on your tour of the three floors of the Mansion. The Lemp family fell from grace tragically, and their demise is still one of the odd stories of the area.
