Carolina Inn; Chapel Hill, NC

There is a permanent doctor on call at the Carolina Inn. Though Dr. William Jacocks died in 1965, he is believed to remain in Room 256, which was his home for the last 17 years of his life. Jacocks's ghost has a friendly sense of humor, according to the staff, and will occasionally play practical jokes on the guests by locking them out of their rooms.

But it hasn't helped—Dr. Jacocks still manages to jam them.
