Scooby-Doo! The Haunted Road Trip is the twenty-second children's book by Scholastic in the Scooby-Doo Readers series.


The gang go on a road trip and get caught in a storm. The roads are closed so they have to stay in a motel. It's spooky and run-down, even the sign says "Creepy Motel"! Yikes! Shaggy and Scooby share a room, they're freaked out, they pick up the phone to order room service and the line is dead, they turn on the TV and it's a spooky movie marathon. Something knocks against their window and scratches at it, and then of course the power goes out! They find a flashlight and open the closet for more blankets when a ghost comes flying out! They spend the rest of the night huddled under the blanket together listening to scratching at eh windows and ghostly moans until they fall asleep. The next morning all is quiet and peacefull. Velma, Fred and Daphne come by to ask S&S if they had a good night's sleep. No! this motel is haunted. All go outside. The phone was out because of the storm, which also knocked down a tree branch outside their window, and caused a power outage and howling winds. The ghost? An old dressmakers dummy that a traveling salesman left behind in the closet. And the Creepy Motel sign? The neon sign is getting fixed. It now reads: Sleepy Motel and Restaurant!

Restaurant?! The gang get back on the road with lots of takeout food.
