In addition to the theme parks and entertainment offerings, Universal Orlando Resort also features several on-site hotels, including the luxurious and immersive Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, Hard Rock Hotel, Dockside Inn and Suites, Surfside Inn and Suites, and Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort, to name a few. These hotels offer a variety of amenities, including themed rooms such as the Minions, or Jurassic Park, swimming pools, fitness centers, and complimentary transportation to the Parks.

In a Social Media Post, a Guest talks about their scary situation at Dockside Inn and Suites. This Universal Guest was walking down the halls when they heard and felt a “sigh” coming from behind when they turned around, nothing was there, they asked the other Guest if they had heard the same thing, and both darted for the room. While at the room, they Guests calmed down and thought it could have been because the walls are thin. However, it kept getting stranger and stranger.

“For context, the first time this happened me and my mom were walking down the corridor when i heard and felt a big sigh from behind me. I turn around and nothing was there and i asked my mom “did you hear that” she looked at me nodded and we both ran too the room. When we got back we talked and chalked it up too the fact the walls are thin and couldve been anything. However, it was still strange the noise was directly behind me.

The second time we were in the toilet at the bar by the pool. It was later around 9pm and me and my mom (again) went to the toilet. As i was washing my hands a voice in the exact same voice as my mom said “come on (my name)” and i looked at my mom again confused as to why she would say that as i was washing my hands. I started looking around and she was looking at me and i could tell she was slightly frightened. She then said “let’s get out of here now”. When i left the bathroom she explained that she did not say that and we were both really freaked out.”
