The Beacon South Beach Hotel is supposedly one of the most haunted hotels in Miami. The reports include switching off lights, televisions screens, and restroom showers. Due to these traits, the in-game hotel is also considered by myth hunters to be haunted.
A strange observation is noted that at night, some of the lights are switched off, while others operate. This could be Rockstar's hint towards the real-life fluctuation of lights reported to occur in the Beacon South Beach Hotel.
