Welcome to the Maribel Caves Hotel. You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave.
As owners of the Maribel Caves Hotel — aka Hotel Hell — Amy and Frank are having the grand re-opening of the hotel and need to make sure all is in tip-top shape. Frank has been so busy with the preparations that he forgot their anniversary…or did he? There may be trouble in paradise if he doesn’t do something fast. Meanwhile, a team of ghost hunters has been brought in to put to rest the rumor that the hotel is haunted before the re-opening. It is just a rumor…right? If the Maribel Caves Hotel has any hope of being brought to its former glory, it certainly can’t be thought of as haunted.
Tour guide Lisa directs ghost hunters Michael Midnight and Zachary Paparazzo through the hotel as they use their highly sensitive paranormal activity sensing equipment to spot ghosts, spirits and other figures from the other side. People claim to have seen a mysterious figure that looks like a 1920’s gangster wandering the halls as well as the spirit of a young woman lurking about. That can’t possibly be true…right? Let’s find out.
