Shanley Hotel was awesome and Sal and his Staff A+. The hotel is very beautiful inside the Blue Room was nice and comfortable. I really liked the fact Sal picked me up from the bus station and gave me a good history lesson on his lovely hotel.

This was our second time going there. It is a great experience being in contact with the spirits in the hotel. And last year was even more activity then this year. Always great though. If you're into being in touch with the spirits, this is the place to go.

As an avid fan of "ghost hunting" and checking out historically unique hotels/B&Bs, I ventured to the Shanley Hotel for an overnight. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a unique experience, but was not overly impressed myself. A one night stay is plenty, and be aware that there is not much to do in the city...

As an unusual birthday request from my wife, we booked a stay at the Shanley. The both of us, 3 daughters, son-in-law, my sister and niece all made a family trip up there and had a great time! Sal the owner and his staff met us all as soon as we came in and made us feel like his family... More

My husband surprised me with a ghost hunt experience for our anniversary. Everyone was so nice, Sal the owner made us feel welcome and Kelly and Joan the investigators were great at making the spirits come alive. We had many responses from the ghost box and heard footsteps in the hall and things moving around while investigating Jonathans’ and Joes’... More

My husband and I went for my birthday and we had the place to ourselves due to the holiday weekend. From the outside it looks a little run down but the inside had been mostly restored besides the 3rd floor where Joe, Jonathan and other spirits reside. We did our investigation with Joan who had everything imaginable to investigate with.... More

Don't go into this expecting to see a full bodied apparition, as the spirits often don't show themselves that way...Its more in the subtle things, such as electronics, batteries going dead quickly, lights flickering, cold spots, certain "feelings" in different bedrooms, sometimes seeing a shadow figure or hearing faint foot steps or the sound of a door creaking...These were all...

There aren't words to describe what an incredible experience my mother and I had at the Shanley Hotel. First off, the hotel is gorgeous and Sal is a great host. The group of people, especially the investigators we met, were so open minded and so much fun. We came in as "open minded skeptics," I've personally never experienced anything outside... More

My daughter wanted to do something different for her Sweet 16. She found this haunted Motel called the Shanley in upstate NY. So we booked the entire hotel to ourselves and took her friends for some ghostly adventures. Well the Shanley did not disappoint. We were greeted by the owner Sal who made us feel right at home. Our ghost... More
