We stayed in room 217 which is where Stephen King got the idea for "The Shining". It is supposed to be haunted but honestly nothing happened to us during our two night stay. However we did go on the history and ghost tour and just had a blast. The haunts there are supposedly friendly so no need to be spooked out. Be warned it is not isolated like it is in the book or in the miniseries (movie was shot at another lodge in Oregon) Estes Park is literally a five minute walk into downtown from the hotel, but it is a grand and beautiful old hotel and yes you will have people roaming the halls at night in search of ghosts, but that is part of the charm! Quiet, clean, lovely, friendly staff! I would definitely stay there again!
