The Haunted Hotel

The Haunted Hotel is of mystery and suspense, about 3 kids and their friend Mr. Linkletter the owner of Shangri-la, to find out the reasons why the guests are being scared away by some mysterious ghost. I myself have read a good number of books like this one but this is the best one I have ever read on mystery.

This book was great! My sister read it to me and when I saw a pickture in the book I was sooo scared. But that was when I was 7 so now I'm not scared. This book is about 3 kids Dink, Josh and Ruth Rose they find out that a hotel is honted! They get right to the case. Even though this book was short I enjoyed it.

My favorite character is Ruth Rose because she is a girl and I am a girl. The Haunted Hotel is about a ghost that haunted a hotel so that Mr Linkletter would have to sale his hotel. I think its good because it is a mystry book and I like mysteries. (Dicated by Isabella, typed by Daddy).

My children are 9 and 6. They found this book to be super fun, exciting, and fast paced. I found it quite silly myself, but really enjoyed sharing it with them. Simple for children to follow and clues thrown in to help them solve the mystery along the way.
In this book, Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose try to find out who are scary ghosts are in the hotel. At the end, they find out. You should read this book to find out.
This book was recommended to me by my son. He loves this series, and I appreciate that it is innocent, as well as interesting to him.
This was adorable. My youngest and I had so many guesses. I loved listening to her tell me her theories. We love this series!
This book is mysterious and exciting because three kids stay at a hotel and solve a mystery and they try finding a ghost that everyone talks about.

I read The Haunted Hotel to screen for my classroom. This is part of the A to Z Mysteries series--I thought kids would like the series, but it has never caught on with my students. I'm not sure why. This book is simply written, a little scary but not too scary, and a good stepping stone for first-time readers of chapter books. In the future, I am going to promote these books to the class so they catch some enthusiasm, and maybe even order a whole set.

Discussion Question
Q:Have you ever seen ghosts? And if you see ghosts, what would you do?
A:Never. I don't like any ghosts and I don't like any horror movies so I would escape as soon as possible.

I don't like ghosts but this story is a kind of mystery so I enjoyed reading this book. I would like to read other series.

We are skipping around through the A to Z Mysteries, mainly because of their availability in the library. Each story is complete on its own, so I don't think we're missing much going out of order. This was a decent story, plain old detective work; not too complicated of a mystery. Our girls really like this series.

This is a book that I read aloud to students in my current field experience and they loved it. The story is engaging and fun for students to read and try to predict how the mystery will end. I think these books could be used to talk different types of literature, mysteries in particular. This book can also be used to talk about being a good citizen and what it means to help each other.
when green lawn's only hotel is having trouble because people hear screaming against the walls and seeing strange sights of ghosts now everybody thinks the hotel is haunted so when dink and josh and ruth rose hear about it they want to solve the mystery so at night they stayed at the hotel and find the ghost and they figured out that the ghost and the screaming were just people.
A good read for first graders. They really enjoyed it and so did I.
There is a ghost at the Shangri-la Hotel. Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose are up to get rid of the ghost. They only have a matter of time until it is to late. If you want to know if they can get rid of the ghost, you should read this book.
This is about how three business men were trying to get the hotel to sell by getting a couple to act as ghosts and tell them that it was for a movie. They failed, but weren't sent to jail. I recommend this book to those who love mysteries.
A to Z Mysteries. Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose investigate a spook who is scaring the guests off and about to make Mr. Spivets sell his hotel Shangri-La! A plot oriented series with 3 kids solving the mysteries. Second grade level.

The Haunted Hotel is a chapter book that is great to use with young readers. The chapters are short and provide some pictures to keep the readers interest. It is great to use as a read aloud so students can be introduced to chapter books.
I loved this book i would say it is mt # 2 favorite. i do not want to type what this is abot because i want everbody to read it. I recommend it for people that like mysteries and scary books or scary things. =)
My niece *and* my nephew both enjoyed this chapter book! Good read--scary without being overly so. The kids in the story are all great characters, and young children can easily relate to them.
