Ghost Adventures at the Palmer House Hotel

Tonight at 9|8c, on an all-new episode of Ghost Adventures, Zak, Nick and Aaron head to the Great Lakes to investigate reports of strange, demonic activity at the Palmer House Hotel in Sauk Centre, MN. The owner, Kelly Freese, is convinced that the dark energy is emanating from the basement, so the crew heads down to the underbelly of the hotel to learn what’s down there … and what they find may send shivers down your spine.

Hotel guests aren’t immune to the spirits that lurk in the building, either – one woman even has a creepy home video in which she appears to be possessed by an invisible force. Learn more about the hauntings at the hotel in our Haunted Destination of the Week, watch as Zak visits the historical society to learn more about the hotel’s past (and those who have died there) and check out behind-the-scenes photos from the filming of the episode.

    Dear Travel Channel,

    I really enjoy Ghost Adventures, but it is becoming un-watchable. My 2 suggestions for huge improvement:
    1. Have the guys dial back the melodrama a bit. They just start coming off as complete tools before the lock down typically starts.
    2. Spend far more time with the actual lock down footage and much less time interviewing alleged witnesses (most come across as a little bit looney anyway).

    Just a thought about the Palmer House Hotel guys…. You may have the Demon from Bobby Macky's following you or that Demon has talked to another Demon who resides there (at the Palmer House Hotel). They can be in more than one place at a time….

  9. jason sims says:

    if you look in the door way after zak gets scratched you can see what looks like a full bodied apperition in the palmer

  10. jason sims says:

    keep an eye on the door way they musta missed this one

  11. jason sims says:

    Hello! I don't know if this is a forum that the GAC will see themselves but I was wanting to tell them about there latest lockdown at the Palmer House hotel and how they may have missed some evidence. My slow motion and controls for my t.v. aren't sophisticated enough to be able to get a good enough look at what I think I saw. While they were investigating in the basement Aaron starts to feel the lethargic "boat rocking" feeling that Zak is feeling and at that moment the camera pans to the right, while it pans from right to left it looks like it captures a face of some kind. It was pretty spooky because it looked kinda like the eyes were glowing. Anyhow it's probably nothing and can be "DEBUNKED" but I hope someone gets this comment and passes this along to the GAC because it could possibly be some very compelling evidence as I know nothing was mentioned of it during the show and I know they have missed things in the past on previous episodes.

    • Kameron Owens says:

      That's fine I just got kind of excited when I saw this and I know they have the equipment to go back and look at this in detail and either debunk it of figure out if it was evidence that can be shown in later episodes. I left my email address so that I can be contacted if needed.

  14. Kyle wade says:

    I watched the goldfield hotel investigation and in the brick throwing scene in the back ground they seen the small board fly from right to left but there is a big 2×4 that falls from left to right that makes the small board fly from right to left i have seen this many times and have never heard nor seen any other person see this.

  15. Rissabell25 says:

  16. Rissabell25 says:

    Zak, you know how you, put twitter questions on YouTube, do travel channel questions, say mine,

  17. Julia says:

    I was watching the episode and right after Zak gets scratched and the guys are reviewing the evp, there is a figure in doorway. Is it a ghost???

  18. RAY says:

    HOLY S#@T. I Live by Carlos, MN. I think everyone knows about Palmer house. I Had no idea it was that haunted!!!
    I Know there is at least 2 other places by Carlos / Alexandria that are haunted. The first is on Highway 29. It's just past Carlos Corners. It had been a place to eat plus a bar. Now it's a car dealership. The second one is Old Broadway In Alexandria. My own brother has seen a Woman in old dress coming down the stairs!

  19. Anna says:

    in the basement while reviewing the EVP, it doesnt say "make sure they go". It says, "sure you do"

  20. Dove says:

    Does anyone know the next time the Palmer House episode will air I missed it, I dont ususally watch Zak, they get too melodramtic at times but will watch this because it is familiar territory. I ahve been going to Sauk Centre for over 25 years, I am in Sauk Centre every weekend in the summer and had heard about the Palmer Hotel, and am finally going to stay there in Jan 2013.
    I do know a guy who stayed there a couple years ago, he stayed in Lucy's room #17and sat up all-night but did not see or hear anything and sisters were in other rooms nothing there either. Hope my experience is different, cant decide if I am taking my husband or daughters (adult).

  21. Trish says:

    I am in Australia and I am new to GAC, and am totally addicted to the show, I don't think there is any fakery going on.

    I was watching series 5 episode 7 at Rocky Point Manor and Aaron is going into the room with night vision, Zac, Nic and Billy are in the kitchen watching on the monitors, the next room to where Aaron is entering, is another doorway and a black smokey figures floats past the doorway, I saw it twice and I am trying to work out what it is, it is too big to be missed I would have thought and I have watched it over and over again and even, it floats at an angle and quite quickly from right to left. I would like to know if is reflection of something but I can't fathom what it is?

  22. Ghost hunting is quite an interesting story. When I was young, I used to get scared when I heard stories on ghosts but later as I grow up, it became minimal and I slowly understand their behavior and such.

    Excellent read, Positive site, where did u come up with the information on this posting?I have read a few of the articles on your website now, and I really like your style. Thanks a million and please keep up the effective work

  25. Michelle Bowen says:

    May I be one of the (hopefully) first to say that this episode of "Aftershocks: Palmer Hotel", is pretty much the best episode of any, and I have watched every episode, every time, reruns galore!!! Great show…will watch it again at a few hours!!

  26. Michelle Bowen says:

    And….you can fall in love with a hotel…Copper Queen….stayed a weekend and looked at and touched every object I could get to….I will always want to stay in the room I stayed in, it's like it's mine. AND I did feel a push on the bottom of my foot and then re-watched the episode and saw the footage again of someone's foot being touched…weird

    I LOVE THE SHOW. I believe. I get areal kick out of the new equipment you guys come up with. (i really hate that i cant come up with your tech guys name, DAVE maybe, but he is awesome)Anyhow, the most recent on the Queen Mary was a great episode, but i have mixed feelings. i have seen all the shows, Zak has no camera struck me as weird, " i will get one from my pack", and happens to look at a static camera, intently, for no reason. but to look at it long enough, while everyone waits arouind, and a shasdow person crosses your vision at just that moment. it does seem a bit contrived. please tell me you are not going down the Ghost Hunters lane. you guys have always been better than that, and spontaneous. I hate to say it makes it all seem so questionable now. ( i have tried to remain faithful). as i stated about the great new gear your tech man develops, on the queen mary, when the "blue" ghost made its presence known at the stairs, was toooo much. The figure came out of no where. I am talking of the new piece of equipment in the pool room. wow, and wow again. But now, after the scene with the shadow person walking thru the frame while you watched "unexpectadly", i wonder why if a piece of equipment that is that great that it "sees" ghosts, why would you not dedicate a person to carry that thru the entire episode. i understand it may be hard to walk and do all that at the same time, but to have it with you when a ghost is apparently with you, wow. when debby stayed at the pool, and the ghost said "wait for debby" she could have turned it on and looked around for the ghost. To say to an entity "yes, I can see you, and you can see, me. Now can we talk.if i could afford ll the technology you guys have, well, it seems as though a person can see and talk to the entity, so be friendly and find out whats going on. you guys have such capabilities to take Ghost adventures" to the next level. I will keep watching, because i hope, like everyone else, that one day it will all come together, and you guys will make history. if anyone can bring all of this together it is you,ZAk, and nick, and aaron. Oh yeah, about the ghost voice that said "what anger", it was refering to Zak. Dude, you are always picking a fight with the other dimension. You need to relax. you just saw an entity for the first time thru a piece of equipment never used before. this "person" is standing before you and may be the key to unlock another universe, and you only say"what do you want to do to me?" dude, say"hello, dont be afraid of me, I have been looking for you all of my life. Can we talk?' sorry to be so lengthy. I am done for now… good luck to you guys, thank you for doing what others dont. looking forward to your next show, and the next piece of tech. art ps, i would love any comments on my observances , but please be nice., I am only trying to be helpful

  28. […] Even more so than Sinclair Lewis, I’ve seen Palmer House noted for it’s paranormal activity. The hotel has seemed to have been explored by every paranormal investigation group in the region and was recently featured on the Travel Channel’s Ghost Adventures. […]

    OMG my brother just found something when Aaron is left alone in the basement of palmer house hotel at 38 minutes 55 secs there is a face right in the top of the screen and I got scared to crap I have no idea what it is

  30. h2er3o says:

    In the basement when they are investigating the push broom falling on its own there is a moment when nick is talking in a doorway. If you look to his left (our right) there is a full body apparition with a white skull like face and a shadowy black body.
