Well, all the ghosts of the people who died in the room are stuck there (like the lady in the 50's-style skirt who keeps jumping out the window, and the sewing machine company guy who slit his own throat and then tried to stitch it back together).

But the main thing that haunts the room -- the evil presence -- is not a ghost. Ghosts used to be human, and the thing that haunts 1408 was never human. Rather, it's an evil force, just an evil presence. As Sam Jackson's character, Mr. Olin, says, "It's an evil ****ing room." Exactly what it is and where it came from is never revealed, because it's a lot scarier when things like this are left unexplained.

What happens at the end of the movie 1408?

You're referring to the alternate ending of 1408, now available on the two disc version of the DVD. In this ending writer Mike Enslin has died setting fire to room 1408. He is buried and then is seen in the room where he hears his daughter's voice calling him and says "yes, of course", not "well done". Mike then walks back into the destroyed room 1408 and, ghost-like, fades through the door. This is meant to show that he is merely surveying the destruction of the room, not that he has himself become trapped within it, and is now leaving to be with his daughter. In the original ending the firefighters force entry into the room and rescue Enslin as he curls under the coffee-table, delighted that the room is dying. Enslin recovers in a New York hospital, Lily at his bedside. He swears that he saw Katie, but Lily refuses to believe him. After his recovery, Enslin moves back in with Lily, beginning work on a new novel that has nothing to do with his previous cheap haunted sites series. While sorting through a box of items from his night in 1408, Enslin comes across his mini cassette recorder. After some difficulty he manages to get the tape to play; it begins with Enslin's dictation of 1408's appearance, but cuts in with audio from his interaction with the apparition of his daughter. Lily freezes in shock as she hears her dead daughter's voice coming from the tape recorder, and the film closes on Enslin meeting her shocked stare with one of grim vindication.
