– Occupying an entire city block in the heart of downtown Riverside,
the Historic Mission Inn began as a modest two-story
12-room adobe boarding house built in 1876 by Christopher Miller.
In 1880, Miller’s son Frank purchased the building and surrounding
property and began to add on to it. Over the next several
decades the hotel was expanded with court yards, a chapel, and
additional wings. Today, the historic inn is said to be
haunted by the original Miller family. Guests have described
beautiful singing coming from empty rooms, reports of large blue
lights floating in the air, being touched and pushed by ghostly
hands, numerous accounts of equipment misbehaving, and more.
Apparitions have been seen in the hallways, floating near the
ceiling in the Dining Room, and near the storage building behind the

- Paso Robles
Inn - During the 19th century the Paso Robles region
, known for its mineral hot springs, became a popular stop for
travelers along the Camino Real trail. In 1889 the Paso Robles
Inn was built to accommodate the many people passing through.
Fully restored to its former glory, the inn continues to carry on
the century old tradition of serving travelers with 30 of its
100 guest rooms outfitted with
hot spring spas. Mysteriously, the phone at the front desk
continuously received mysterious calls from an empty Room 1007 on a
regular basis. On one occasion, the phone even called 911.
Staff believes these phone calls come from a former 1940’s night
clerk who found a fire in the hotel. He quickly took action,
ringing the alarm and helping to get the hotel evacuated.
However, in the process, Emsley died of a heart attack.
