A TikToker and her grandmother found a cut-out on the carpeted floor that opens to an apparent secret tunnel under their small one-story hotel.
A video featuring their finding, which amassed over 4.6 million views and 319,000 likes since being posted earlier in the week, shows TikTok user @addisoncassel, who seemingly goes by Addison, opening the cut-out on the floor and revealing a tunnel.
Captioned, “Better not be a body under my bed,” the video features a text overlay explaining the situation.
“I was on my hotel bed and I noticed a cut-out on the floor,” the TikToker notes via text overlay and the text-to-speech effect.
“Me and my grandma got it open, there was two layers covering it… There’s a room under our room, it’s a one-story motel,” Addison continues.
In a follow-up video, she explains how she found the room and that she couldn’t see the end of the tunnel.
“It might be a crawl space… but there were no pipes or wiring that I could see,” she says.
Some of the commenters on the original video speculated about the room’s use and origins.
“Could be a boiler room, or bomb shelter- especially if it’s an older hotel,” user @tayistrippin said.
“It’s a crawl space,” another user, mynameisjessica400, speculated.
Others made cultural references and poked fun at the potential horror movie setting.
“I watched a movie once about a psycho motel owner that had underground tunnels to each room, and he’d butcher guests in their sleep,” @itsrobertahern said.
