Stayed at the Stanley hotel in February of 2013 for one night, opting to do the ghost package which included a mug, ghost doll, meter and a guaranteed haunted room. My husband and I were given the “Kissing Cowboy” room.- It’s said that a cowboy resides in this room and loves his women. Often kissing them goodnight- and when heard, he sounds like a cowboy. Stayed up until 4 am walking around the hotel, doing EVP’s in our room- hanging out in the hallway where little kids are said to be heard running up and down the halls. While awake, we didn't experience much- was able to get a few orbs in some photos and some sounds but I will tell you because the building is old, you hear EVERYTHING! In the winter time, you hear the pipes popping throughout the night and I’m not sure about the other rooms but we had a corner room on the 4th floor so the wind was super loud. All normal sounds you can expect in an old building. While sleeping, I decided to leave my cell phone on to record any sounds- later sound two very interesting things. 1. This loud whoosh sound appeared and then I said- someone just touched my leg. 2. Got a male voice saying “Hey, come on”- which it turns out was the same EVP that Aaron from the Ghost Adventures captured.
Besides the above, the hotel is simply beautiful! It’s kept very nice and clean- the lobby is very relaxing at night when the fireplaces are going. If you have a chance talk a walk/hike on the boulders to the left of the building. Such beautiful views!
Only downside that I had on this hotel was the cost. For one night plus the ghost package cost us over $400. This included, one room, mug, ghost doll and meter. That’s it. No breakfast the next morning or anything. The experience was nice but not worth what we paid. I’ll definitely visit again but one stay is good for me.
