    • Kris: (doing an EVP session) If Elizabeth isn't here, is there somebody else who would like to talk? EVP #1: (whispered) Get out. EVP #2: (a deep, male voice) Where did the bitch go?

    • Steve: (getting creeped out in a certain spot) If your feeling changes from one point to another, I mean, that could mean something's roaming around. Britt: Yeah, I don't know why anyone would want to think an entity has to stick in a certain area. It could have went and checked Kris out- so, you know, if it's an old school cowboy, it'd be down with Kris!

    Notes (3)

    • The Goldfield Hotel was featured on a second episode of Scariest Places on Earth titled "Goldfield Ghost Hunt".

    • Grant states that TAPS' investigation of the Goldfield Hotel is to be the last one before it gets renovated. Red Roberts, the owner of the Goldfield, did say that he would not allow any more ghost hunters in, but changed his mind when asked by the Ghost Adventures crew in 2010. They had originally investigated the place and gotten some very strong evidence there, so when the crew returned to the city to investigate some of the other buildings, Red gave them permission to film their fourth season episode "Goldfield".

    • Both the Goldfield Hotel and the Old Washoe Club have been the subject of TV investigations by the Ghost Adventures crew. The Hotel and Club were both visited in their pilot documentary "Ghost Adventures: The Beginning", which they made for the Syfy Channel rather than the Travel Channel, which is where their show has aired ever since that time. The Old Washoe Club was revisited in their third season episode "Washoe Club and Chollar Mine", and the Goldfield Hotel in the fourth season episode "Goldfield, NV".
