Could have been a great overnight for my friends and I. The hotel is creepy and clearly full of history. The sad part is that it is run horribly. We were not greeted at the door, we had to wait to be assigned rooms, the investigation started late, the staff was unprofessional. You can't drink or eat in your rooms... More

Stayed 3 nights in this so called hotel, the first night 7 ghost investigators got drunk and had a massed brawl, the second night I heard giggling outside my bedroom door and upon investigation just out side on the floor was a freshly laid turd but the perps had fled. I checked out early never to return

When we pulled up to the Shanley I said "Yup, it's a dump" and you may do the same thing, but don't judge this book by it's cover. The rooms are beautiful and they really go out of their way in terms of amenities. But you're not there for the amenities, you're there for the ghosts, and you won't be... More

no private bathrooms? Sorry.. I don't share a bathroom with strangers... No alcohol? No food? $95 per person? 6:00 pm check in? Pretty convinced they stage these supposed manifestations... Along with the help of the supposed professionals.. To gain notoriety...

Back in August of 2015 my fiancé, a friend and I traveled from Pennsylvania to the Shanley hotel for a weekend trip. We have always been interested in haunted places and saw this one.
