Estes Park, Colorado - Stanley Hotel

Happy Halloween!


The Stanley Hotel is said to be a spooky, supposedly very haunted hotel! The property lies on the eastern slopes of Colorado's Rocky Mountains and is very popular for it's ghost tours.

The Stanley was opened in 1909, and is situated approximately 72 miles from the Denver International Airport. Nearby attractions include: Rocky Mountain National Park (6 miles away). This property is 100% non-smoking.

The hotel is said to have inspired Stephen King's book "The Shining". Over the years, the Stanley has certainly earned the reputation of being a truly haunted hotel. Reported ghostly visitors include hotel founder F.O. Stanley and his wife Flora, and a "mysterious cowboy" in room 408. The hotel was recently investigated for the television program "Ghosthunters" as well as Travel Channel's "Ghost Adventures".
