Bear spotted by guest in a hotel in Tennessee

A bear checked in at a Tennessee hotel over the weekend -- and a guest caught the whole thing on camera.

Caitlin Frakes spotted the bear as it ate food from a knocked over trash can.

The animal then walked up a ramp and then back down before it looked up towards her and walked off down a corridor.

Experts say there are about 1,500 bears living in the nearby Great Smokey Mountains National Park.
