Another night a guest reported seeing a soft, glowing presence in her room—it was a young woman with brown hair wearing a light lace dress. She thought the apparition's name was Abigail.
One morning a young boy reported seeing several small Abraham Lincoln's jumping around in his room. The hotel staff was summoned, but the boy's mother insisted they not worry because "strange things happen to them all the time." Later the boy reported seeing a woman dressed in white, brushing his hair. Maybe it was Abigail. Perhaps the boy had been learning about Presidents and First Ladies in school.
Many of the stories collected over the years involved the kitchen. Stoves are mysteriously turned on and off, cabinets open and closed, and one time two staff members reported seeing a frying pan moving around. Reported of the paranormal were more frequent when the restaurant was being remodeled. Perhaps the ghosts couldn't find their favorite foods easily, but ever since the restaurant, Nine-Ten, opened a few years ago, there's been more peace in the kitchen.
There have also been many reports from guests and staff about rooms in the North Annex, above the bakery. To this day, people claim they hear loud voices, heavy footsteps, people running down the stairs, and doors swinging open for no reason. All after the bakery has closed.
What is now the bakery was once two apartments. In one lived two young women and in the other two young men. They were well-known for throwing wild parties. Evidently, they enjoyed themselves very much because they are still at it today. The hotel continues to receive complaints from the guest rooms above the bakery, but the outcome is always the same. The bakery has been empty for hours and is locked for the night.
What or who lurks in the hotel's hallways and around the corners - we'll never know. There is only one way to find out-experience our haunted hotel near San Diego, La Jolla for yourself!
