The hotel was actually called the Griffin Hotel when it was built in 1910, standing 5 stories and 60,000 square feet. It was sold after construction for 75,000 with 60 luxury rooms and suites, plus a grand ballroom. The price for a room was $2.00 per night unless you wanted to stay in a room with a bath room then the price was $2.50. The Griffin Hotel was the place to stay while visiting or passing through Griffin. It stood tall through the prohibition and the depression. It closed its doors in the 70’s and reopened in 2013 as Sinister Suites Haunted Hotel.
