    Take a photo of the blocked stairwell on the 4th floor, if you have your camera on flash it will reveal the word RedRum scratched in the wood.

    The infamous mountain retreat where Stephen King stayed one snowy autumn in 1974 and was inspired to write his novel The Shining. The hotel is regarded to be haunted.

    COLORADO: 'The Shining' (1980); Film "takes place at the Overlook Hotel in the secluded Colorado mountains" … This is the hotel that inspired it all — author Stephen King stayed here in 1973.

    Great old school lobby, bar with lots of whiskey choices and bartenders who know how to use it. Traffic is a mess with all the on-site construction.

    Great hotel from the outside. From the inside probably a bit overrated and expensive.

    Beautiful room in the lodge. Room service was delightful, the tour was fun, the bar has an extensive whiskey collection, the lunch wraps were delish. Highly recommended by me!

    The whiskey selection is out of this world. But, the food is average and expensive.

    Love just sitting in the lobby by the fireplaces. Great old historic hotel. A must for any trip to Estes Park.

    not a single frame of film from"The Shining" was shot at the Stanley. The "Overlook"hotel is in Oregon. the"hedge"maze is in U.K and the long winding mtn.road as it begins is in "New Zealand". got it?

    Very gimmicky and over-priced. Most of the employees are grouchy and unfriendly. Oh and paid $500 for an upgraded experience only to find out there's no breakfast for people staying in main building.

    Stunningly gorgeous hotel and grounds. Stay, take a tour, and/or just come for dinner or drinks. This was a true highlight of Estes Park for us.

    Try the Redrum Ale. It's to die for. Also, don't wear an orange tux to the party. It's been done.

    Room 217 has a great collection of stephen king books in it. A lot of them have nice messages from fans who have donated them.

    Take the history tour! There's more to this place than meets the eye. For instance, you'll learn that it hasn't always been painted white!

    Fan of Stephen King? Stay at the uber-famous Stanley Hotel, where The Shining was filmed. Designed with vintage decor and rumored to be haunted. Come during Christmas where a fancy feast is served!

    They do haunted tours every night, to include a stop at room 217. If you're staying in room 217 you can have a LOT of fun with the tour groups when they gather outside the door ... >:)

    Book this room as far in advance as possible. TOTALLY WORTH IT. It's a fantastic room with great history.

    When checkin' in ask/hope that you get a room that faces Estes Park. The rooms that face the back of the hotel have the worse views and can get a bit noisy from the outdoor bar!

    Crazy haunted. You can sometimes see your own image suddenly appear against a wall. Oh wait, that's a mirror. Never mind. Still a cool old hotel.

    Wow! It's a Stephen King movie, not Stanley Kubrick and none of "The Shining" was actually shot here. I'm floored that no one seems to know that!
