Man discovers two creepy secret doors hidden inside his hotel room

A man who had been staying at a hotel uncovered something rather disturbing at the back of one of the wardrobes.
When you stay at a hotel, the least you can expect is to feel safe and secure, but for one man whose video recently went viral on social media, a stay in a seemingly unassuming hotel room sparked a discovery that could lead anyone to question whether any hotel is truly private.

In the clip (viewable below), the unnamed man can be seen looking around his hotel room, which features a double bed, open-plan bathroom and plenty of storage cupboards.

Things quickly take a sinister turn, however, when, upon opening up one of the cupboards, he reveals the presence of what appears to be a secondary set of wooden panel doors situated at the back.

Using his hotel key card to force the doors open, the man then steps through into a previously hidden space behind the walls of the room that is easily large enough for someone to walk around in.
What's more, there is also a second hidden door on the exterior wall. When the man turns the latch and opens it, a second hidden passage can be seen stretching away into complete darkness.

While we don't know which hotel this is or even if the man filming the clip is a genuine guest, the footage does highlight the fact that hotel rooms do have the potential to hide secrets.

In this particular case, it's possible that the hidden space was left over from the room's construction, but it remains unclear where the second passage leads or if anyone could actually access the hidden space from elsewhere in the building.

Would you have slept in this hotel room if it was you who had discovered the secret doors ?

Has the hotel done anything about these rooms? Did he report this to the front desk? The hotel should give him an answer.

The architectural history of the hotel probably holds answers. There have been stories of forgotten sealed areas in private and public buildings being rediscovered before. Most likely at some point there were renovations/repairs made. Areas that were considered too far gone to repair were usually sealed off instead of being  demolished as a cost saving measure.  Secret Prohibition era features were usually single rooms, spaces between walls or subterranean tunnels. But I wouldn’t completely discount the possibility at this point.

I find the energy in all motels very overpoweringly negative and therefore try and avoid them. This one is Bate's Motel s--- all the way, creepy ?.

Looks like the original article was posted on a .uk and I don't think they ever had a prohibition? May not matter. I suppose the video could have been taken anywhere - with so little known about its origins. I didn't hear any audio. Interesting find.

Perfectly normal for older buildings that can't have all the space divided fairly . An entrance was left to be accesses likely water Pipes or some other equipment.

The biggest problem with this thread, is that there is little information presented that it could very a easily be a staged hoax ,

It’s possible that the walkway is for maintenance on the large, curved block window in the hot tub area. That type of block window is difficult to repair when you only have one side to work from.

I found a whole child's bedroom in my family's farmhouse attic that was sealed off after a g.great uncle died in there as a child from a epidemic in the 1800s.  I told my grandmother about the room and she told me the story and that she forgot about it.
