Must See attraction

Always visit the Stanley Hotel. We stayed overnight once and really enjoyed the room. This is a must see attraction when you're in Estes Park

One should not go to Estes Park without a visit to the Stanley Hotel and the steamer. Gorgeous place, great restraunt and beautiful grounds. If you are fortunate enough to to be near during the holidays, please do one miss the activities. The buffets during the holidays are beautiful and food is outstanding.

We stop here every time we come to Estes Park. Love reading about the history and walking the new maze. Be sure to take the lower entrance by the maze and ride the original elevator to the 1st floor!

I really don't understand why people complain about the museum. Go visit a third world country and see what others have. Geez. The museum is worth the visit.

The history lesson is short and sweet - it's an impressive collection of photos and cars. Very enjoyable
