Great location. Very close to the tourist trap down in town but this is a town that lives and dies by the busy season. Locals are welcoming and the hotel was a peaceful gem even with the ghost hunters running around. The hotel restaurant was exceptional with the seasonal dishes as well. A bit of movie trivia was around every... More

Great place to stay. There are things for kids to do within 5 miles. Great old hotel, lots of history, very comfortable rooms. Staff is very accommodating. Remember, it is a resort, so drinks and food can be a bit pricey, but they aren't bad. Plenty to do around town, charming shops, great souvenirs. We'll be back again!!

We were overwhelmed after witnessing and learning of the historic significance of this property. Dating back to 1909, if only the walls could talk. While it is a bit pricey, the overall cost is greatly mitigated by the attention to detail, a wonderful staff, and the uniqueness of entire property as a National Historic Landmark. The several movies filmed here... More

I stayed at the the Stanley for two nights on either side of a Rocky Mountain trek. The rooms are well appointed and the views can't be beat. This is not a chain hotel where everything is cookie cutter, it has character. The rooms vary but both of the rooms I stayed in had spacious bathrooms and closets. My first... More

I was really looking forward to staying at this hotel and doing the ghost tour. I had no idea the 2 bedroom condo we stayed in was a condo not owned by the hotel, but, owned by private owners and the hotel rents them. The hotel rents them however, they don't pay attention to whether or not the phones work,... More

My wife and I were staying at another hotel in Estes Park, Colorado. We visited the historic Stanley Hotel. Even though we were not guests at the hotel, we were treated as if we were frequent guests. We decided to eat dinner in the bar area. Our server was named Alexa. My wife, for health reasons, must watch what she... More

First, we really really wanted to like this property, close to Denver we hoped it could be our frequent goto place, sadly disappointed. Booked a last minute special over the phone, never received an email confirmation, phoned back and received a confirm #. Arrived at hotel about 2:30 pm, no record of reserve. Staff took quite awhile to find us... More

Worth the stay. Enjoyed the night tour. Food was very good! Was little warm, but not going to complain to much about that. Rooms are small however what else do you do in them bit sleep? Experience I will never forget.

The Stanley Hotel rides on the laurels of F.O. & Flora Stanley, founders of the hotel. The reputation of this hotel is larger-than-life, but definitely not worth the room rate or hype to stay here. Housekeeping was deplorable. Moldy caulking around the tub, (didn't use the shower-yuck) dirty tile grout, paper and other debris under the bed. (Normally I don't... More

My wife and I were booked at the Stanley Hotel by a couple whom hired us as photographers for their wedding in Estes Park. We stayed at the Stanley for two nights. We travel a lot and - unfortunately - this was a very poor experience for us. The staff was friendly and there is no denying that this hotel... More
