The food will haunt you forever! Stay away from the Cascades restaurant.. The hotel is wonderful, very interesting, beautiful decor. Comfortable beds, great staff. We originally were going to stay in the Lodge, but the elevator was out of order, we then needed to stay in the main hotel with a working elevator. It was a good switch. I would... More

In the summer the rooms can get quite warm during the day. Rooms were clean and the main restaurant, though a little pricey, was quite good. We stayed in the Lodge and found it difficult to take a nap with the tours going by the front of the place and the parking lot in front of our room, motorcycles and... More

Let me begin by saying I am not one to leave negative reviews, nor am I a complainer or picky traveler. With that said, our stay at The Stanley Hotel was not a pleasant experience. The hotel lobby and grounds are beautiful and the history and haunting stories make the hotel unique and add character. The staff was friendly and... More

Rooms are a little small but that's to be expected in old hotels. It was a lot of fun to explore at night. The room did get too hot during the night which made it uncomfortable to sleep. Would want to come back to stay in a more haunted room!

The hotel is beautiful, and it is set in a gorgeous location. We did the ghost tour, which was silly, but fun. The room was very nice and a lot bigger than I thought it would be. Overall, it was a great experience

My wife had always wanted to stay at the Stanley and for our 16th anniversary we spent a weekend in August. Be aware that this is a Historic building with all the pros and cons that come with it. Setting is great, service was excellent, the room was in need of maintenance. The bed was broken. Only one window opened... More

Perhaps our expectations were too high. We'd seen the Stanley sitting up on the hill overlooking gorgeous Estes Park. The Victorian-style white-sided, red-roofed hotel basked in sunlight and looked over the valley. It had to be nice. Room rates were pretty high, but not out-of-line with other top-tier hotels. There was not a convenient way to arrive and check-in. We... More

The Stanley hotel is not a good place to stay. The service was excellent, food very good, employees very helpful and polite on the other hand; there is no air conditioners where you must keep the windows open all the time. It is busy place where a lot of cars drive by, there was a lot of noise from activities... More

We were both giddy to stay in this mysterious setting, but the staff pulled the rug out from under us. Outside bartender was more interested in talking to drunken friends about moon rocks [sigh], front desk help had no clue as to good restaurant options and housekeeping?... Ha! They just pulled up covers ever-so poorly and made sure you had... More

Picturesque older style white hotel with beautiful views. Nice porches out front to sit on but could use a larger sitting area. Continental breakfast was great and loved that it opened at 7 AM . Stayed in the lodge which had a pretty but small lobby. Quiet building but the acoustics in the room were nonexistent as we could hear... More
