Urban legend has it that 'Hotel California' was the Church of Satan. The Satanic Bible was also written there in 1969 and black magic was to have occurred as well. This myth has never been proven. There is no mention of any hauntings of Hotel California.
People watch too many movies and then confuse them with reality.
None of this garbage is true. Read some interviews of The Eagles in Rolling Stone or some other, REPUTABLE source. They debunk rumor after rumor in every interview.
The Beverly Hills Hotel was never abandoned or haunted.
