Sandi has wanted to stay here since she was a girl visiting Estes Park. What a lovely old restored hotel. There are many "ghost" stories about the hotel but....we didn't see or hear any. It snowed the night we were there and we awoke to a beautiful blanket of white powder covering everything. The hotel is a bit pricy but... More

The hotel is lovely and in a great location, and genuinely historic. The service was mixed. For example, we got poor directions as to how to find our room, park our car, etc. When we had drinks and an appetizer in the bar, service was very slow, and the two whiskeys from their menu we ordered were not available. We... More

We stayed in the Lodge at the Stanley Hotel. Room was average, bathroom had cracked titles, mold on grout, bed sheets had stains, and top of pictures had dust. I expected more from this hotel. Thanks to the ghost for making this a trip to remember. Our bathroom window which had three locks kept opening. Found out from the front... More

We had the wonderful opportunity to stay in four different rooms during our 4-night stay: Rooms 401, 217, 418 and 240. Activity in the haunted rooms were off the charts. Captured great EVPs and even received a slight push from an entity in room 217. Room 240 had a beautiful view of the mountain ranges. It was beyond comfortable with... More

A grand hotel build in 1909. Also the location of the film, The Shining. We joined one of the night tours, which was more of a ghost seeking experience. We did learn a lot about the history of the hotel, and saw a few places that we wouldn't have had the opportunity to experience. It's a beautiful hotel, surrounded by... More

We had a Living Social to stay here on a Sunday night in April. We upgraded so that we could stay on the 4th floor, which is supposedly more haunted. The room was clean, with beautiful old furniture. The TV plays "the Shining" movie on a continuous basis and I enjoyed watching the movie because I couldn't quite remember what... More

We were staying in Estes Park last August, 2013 and decided to take a tour of the Stanley Hotel. Our tour guide was "paraNorma." It was an interesting tour, full of fun information. There is lots of history about the hotel, which I found more interesting than the spooky stuff, but it was fun to hear about all of it.... More

My wife and I stayed at the Lodge at The Stanley Hotel for 3 nights. Loved the restored rooms! Very comfortable bed. Nice spaciousness. Great staff!!! Midge, the breakfast lady, was awesome!!! We especially enjoyed the ghost hunting event that we were there for. Go on the weekends, and purchase a ghost hunting excursion with Karl Phieffer. Highly recommended hotel!!!!

We recently spent a night at the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park. The history and charm of the hotel is enough to bring people here. Some people come to experience the paranormal activity or to see the inspiration for the hotel in Stephen King's The Shining. We did not take any of the tours offered by the hotel but used... More
