I was in Ohio for a short visit. I stayed at the Royal Inn. My room was 33. 20 minutes after being there all of the electric in my room went out. Except the lamp on the wall that flashed like a strobe light. After being located to another room, I walked back down to room 33 where I spotted a bullet hole in the window. My daughter took a picture of the window. There looks like an image of 2 men in the picture. Just curious if anyone knows anything about this place and its history..
I found this, I think it is the same thing you found. It doesn't say the room number but I am going to see if I can find some more information on the murder. Copied and pasted from this link.......

"STEVEN HAYSLIP SENTENCED TO EIGHT YEARS IN SHOOTING AT THE ROYAL INN
Steven D. Hayslip, 36, of Stoney Run Road near Friendship, entered a plea of guilty to manslaughter today in connection with the shooting death of Reginald Thorpe, 30, of Columbus. Scioto County Common Pleas Court Judge Howard H. Harcha III sentenced Mr. Hayslip to five years in prison, with an additional three years for using a firearm, for a total of eight years.
The shooting occurred early Sunday, December 7, 2003 at the Royal Inn Motel on Kendall Avenue. Mr. Hayslip was arrested at his home by Portsmouth Police officers on Wednesday, December 10, 2003. Attorney Tracy Hoover represented Steven Hayslip." (by Austin Leedom at 11:20 p.m. Thursday, February 19, 2004.)

No problem. I can't find any other information. Every key word only brings up that same article and nothing else related. Please post on here if you find out more. I am pretty fascinated by these kind of things.

I will for sure. Normally I stay away from anything like this. But it has just stuck with me. I have had this on my mind ever since it happened. Then when I seen the images in my daughters picture I couldn't help but feel like something or someone was reaching out to tell us something. I really hope that I can find out what all this is about....I don't know anything about Portsmouth, that was the 1st time I had ever been there. And not so sure that I would ever visit again after this.

There are probably quite a few people that have died in that motel that NOBODY knows about.It is the cheapest place in Portsmouth and has been for years.It is known for criminal activity of all sorts.I do think it is interesting that the lights malfunctioned and you're camera caught people that were not there, since electronics are said to malfunction in area's with high paranormal activity.Was it at a certain time when the electric started having problems ?

This motel was a higher class motel back in the 50s, known as the Ett-Mar. Now just like alot of them are bought by Indians from the far east. They come over here broke and the United States gives them next to nothing enterest free loans, plus they pay no taxes for ten years. These iidiots can't fix anything nor do they know how to run a motel, all they know is how to stick their grubby little hands out!!

Honestly I don't even know what time it happened. We were really tired from driving. We lost all power in the room except the light behind the door that was flashing on and off. The picture was taken with a cell phone. I wasn't familiar with Portsmouth or I would have never stayed there with my daughter. I liked the fact that the place looked empty. I thought with no one being there we had nothing to worry about.But now would really love to know why whatever wanted my attention so badly.

I have remembered there were many incidents of people being killed at this place. There was a man who was killed there in a bathtub, back in the years 1984-1985, acid in the tub killed him. The public library has a history dept. which may be able to help you. Also, things which happen in portsmouth are hush hush most of the time. If, your daughter took the picture and 2 figures were in the picture this is probably the spirit ghosts (people who have been shot in room 33). I don't know what room number the man died in the bathtub, but the body was killed in the tub. The lights going out is another sign of ghostly happenings and all the lights don't have to go out for it to be the spirits in the place.

I remember the person being killed in the tub & his or her (I thought it was a woman) body being burned. As for out of state, I'm sorry that you came to this town & stayed in the worst place ever. There were no cars there because the crack/heroin addicts have sold their cars for drugs. Yep that's how sad this town is. They will give you a car for 20 worth of drugs. But hey, great for those dealers right? They work so hard on making this town the piece of shit that it has become!!
