‘It’s really freaking me out so I decided to turn on my phone, because I can’t figure out what’s going on and this happened a couple of times already.’

In the clip, Ramirez walks around the room describing the occurrences that he’s already seen in the hotel.

While filming, the phone on the dresser flies off the cradle and a medium-sized towel falls to the ground along with a hanger.

Ramirez repeatedly ask for the ghost’s name and eventually opens the door for the entity, asking it to leave.

Micah Pediford said: ‘At 3:40 he’s pulling the hanger toward him. You can see his hand in the mirror. Also note that every single item is pulled TOWARD him.’

‘Fake as hell,’ added Jeff George.

It was a sentiment shared by Homer Garza who analyzed the video.

‘Why would the phone being disconnected have any significance? No luggage in room. The towel moves before it flies off,’ he said.

‘Also if this happened to you or me? We’d run and scream in terror we certainly wouldn’t laugh about it. Or turn into a paranormal ghost hunter.

‘Also IM SO SURE THE “GHOST” FOLLOWED HIS EVERY COMMAND… LMAO. . It’s too staged sorry. You can almost see the shadows of a second person in the room rigging the tricks….’

Ramirez had choice words for those who doubted his encounter.

‘Everybody’s got their own opinion and I’m open to that and I appreciate it, but I’m not going to disrespect or talk down to anyone just because they don’t believe the video, or don’t believe it’s real,’ Ramirez said to KSAT.

‘That’s why I filmed in the mirror and walked all around (the room).’

Ramirez told KSAT that he went to reception and asked for a new room. In the new room, he had all the lights on at bedtime but didn’t sleep one bit.

Hotel staff reportedly told Ramirez that they wouldn’t have anyone sleep in the room until it was blessed.

Ramirez added that he keeps a bible nearby and held one tightly on his ride home.
