The Bates Motel

No, not THE Bates Motel from Psycho. It's the other Bates Motel....in Idaho! Come on, where've you been??  Before it became a motel with the infamous name, it was an officer quarters at the Farragut Naval Base. It is said that most of the rooms have some level ghostly activity. However, rooms #1 and #3 seem to be most busy with spirits. Guests generally experience "creepy feelings" in these two rooms, but there has been no dangerous activity. There have been incidences of ashtrays falling off tables, lights flickering on and off and items left on tables changing positions.


Sorry no website found....but got their email: thebatesmotel@adelphia.net


Owyhee Plaza Hotel

1109 Main Street, Boise, Idaho, (208) 343-4611



The Owyhee Plaza HotelThe Owyhee Plaza Hotel is located in picturesque downtown Boise. Boise, known as the “City of Trees”, seems like the idyllic place to live: rolling hills, clean air, and of course, lovely trees. This pristine and quaint “little” town also has a wonderful little secret: Ghosts at the Owyhee Plaza Hotel.


There have been reports from both guests and staff that ghosts reside at the Owyhee Plaza. Some activity includes full apparitions and spiritual energy. So after hearing about the Owyhee Plaza, we contacted the general manager, John May who was so kind to give us a rundown of the Owyhee.


Owyhee’s General Manager, John May:


“Our hotel has been around since 1910 and I have been here for the last 15 years. And although I have not personally seen any ghosts there have been folks who have stayed in the main building guest rooms that have claimed to have seen spirits at night. In some areas in the basement as well as some of our meeting rooms, according to some of our staff, have some spirits running through them.”


Beautiful Downtown BoiseWe found the following story from a tripadvisor.com member about her stay at the Owyhee Plaza in room 136:


“It is haunted and I saw the ghost. At first I wasn't frightened and asked who she was and what she wanted. The next day it really dawned on me what had happened to me. I got a little frightened and the night clerk offered to move me. Had I not been with my husband, I definitely would have.”
