We were staying outside of Denver. It took us about and hour-hour and a half to get to Estes Park, but, you would never know it. The drive was so beautiful. The town is gorgeous. The hotel is gorgeous. The tour was fun. Thomas, our guide, was enthusiastic and informative. We had a great time. We actually got to see... More

We were there just last week and no one charged us anything to park, so I am confused by the reviews stating it cost $5. We paid nothing. We took the tour which with our AAA discount was $17 per person. It would have been nice to take it in the evening (spookier??) but all those were booked up so... More

Yes we were surprised about the parking fee, but since we decided to spend the day here, eat,take the history tour, and view the museum, the fee went toward our purposes. We did almost walk away from the dining room when asked if we had a reservation. (the room was empty.) The hostess seated us anyway. In fact, everyone was... More

we were just there on a family vacation. We thought it would be nice to go into the Stanley Hotel for a cocktail and get the kids some ice cream. The guy at the gate charges five bucks for parking. some people may call me cheap. But I have principles. I'm not going to pay $5 for parking when im... More

We were interested in checking out the lobby of the Stanley Hotel, and perhaps acquiring a souvenir, but were surprised that the hotel is charging $ to park in their lot. So, they lost potential customers, and we settled for a photo from the road. They are really milking their "fame" for all it's worth!

I had fun visiting the museum. I wish there was more of a flow on where to look at things, but overall it was a great experience. It would be more for pre-teen to adults than little ones.

Had a blast with our seventeen year old. He wants to find and restore an old steamer like they have in the hotel lobby. Even if you do not stay at the hotel, it is a great place to go to.

What can you say other than it's The Stanley! Everything about this place is first class. If you skip this while in Estes you have made a HUGE mistake! By far the best place to visit, other than the outdoors that Estes provides.

Beautiful old hotel with lots of history and charm including ghost tours. Stephen King is writing the next Shining movie as I write this review and this time it will totally shot at the Stanley. You can't miss it coming not Estes Park it is on the side of a hill. Take the time to go through it and you... More
