1. Stayed 2 nights at the hotel as we were visiting the Rockies. 2. First night, the heating was not working. Took 3 calls and an hour to get someone to get it started and 5 hours to get the room warmed. 3. Door to balcony did not close. 4. Dined at Brunch and Co - 1. staff seemed over worked 2. Kept on telling us we will get a seat in 20 mins but we had to remind them every 20 mins till we got a table after an hour. 5. The shower did not have hot water the last day. 6. I don't think the hotel is worth the price they ask for. We will not be staying there again. 7. This was our experience, others may think differently of the hotel. 8. Thanks for reading the review.

We regret selecting The Stanley Hotel for our 4-day visit to Estes Park in October 2021. The hotel is literally a rip-off. Here is a summary of Negative and Positive points, you should consider before making a reservation. Negatives: The Stanley Hotel is extremely disorganized and understaffed, rooms are dirty, hotel lacks maid service and security. Our room wasn't cleaned for 4 days. They blamed Latimer County for the lack of cleanliness - “Per Larimer County guidelines during COVID-19, The Stanley Hotel has adjusted our housekeeping policy to limit guest interaction. We will not provide stay-over cleaning services.” At the same time, both guests and staff were exposed daily to over 350+ mostly mask-less people (14 day tours and 9 night tours) walking around all day long plus late evening hours. Downstairs lounge and restaurant bar were packed with tour participants most of the day every day of our stay. No priority was given to hotel guests paying over $300 per night. In addition, hotel guests had no dedicated parking. Parking spots were occupied by tour participants’ cars. The hotel doesn’t make you feel safe. We saw tour participants roaming around guest floors 10-11 PM each day of our stay. They could get there using main elevator that lacks basic security features. On one occasion a group of 4 young people tried to open several guest rooms. When asked about hotel security, front desk informed us there is no onsite security. Hotel has no AC and many rooms have no heating. It got very cold during our stay and we had to force them to provide a tiny portable electric heater. Positives: We saw ghosts!!! Ghosts of housekeeping staff laid off by The Stanley Hotel management to save money. No more positives, sorry!

Read other reviews. It's true. I'm being generous with 3 stars. The Hotel is short staffed and actually more of a tourist attraction. Staff is busy selling tour tickets, etc. and not taking care of their actual paying customers. Room wasn't ready at 3:00 when we arrived because they're not ready until 4:00. OK. Then at 4:00 there are literally 40-50 people waiting in line. We called the front desk from our room several times. No answer. We stayed two nights and there is no room service because of COVID, which they should let you know in advance and should reduce their prices.

OK, so everyone is understaffed these days so I make allowances for that but overall I was very disappointed in my stay here and would not recommend it to others. First: the public areas: It was so crowded with their very popular tours that it was impossible for us to enjoy the lovely lounge area, restaurant & bar. At any given time it seemed that there were at least 3 tour groups of 20 or so people walking around these areas and it felt very noisy and disorganized. Because our rooms were not ready on time, we were given a voucher for free drinks at the bar, but the bar was so crowded that we could never get in. We ended up going down the back way to avoid the crowds so never got to enjoy the historic aspects of the hotel. Second our room: We were on the third floor of the main historic building. The mattress on the bed was by far the worst I have ever encountered at any hotel in this country. I had to climb up to get to the middle of the bed and felt like I was about to roll off near the edges. The toilet clogged up. There was no maid service and we weren't even told that when we checked in. The corridors were very noisy and the floor above us creaked very loudly whenever someone walked around. The one good thing about the room was that the windows opened so that we could get fresh air at night.

Very unorganized. Took forever to get someone on the phone to even book the room. Got passed around and hung up on once. So irritating. Finally got it. Got to hotel and didn't know where to go in to register. Had to wade through tour people and ask around. No one to great you. No signs we could find. Price was 330 I believe on a week night. And that was the cheapest room they had. Sink in bathroom had a broken drain and there was white foamy looking hair in bottom. Bathroom was tiny. Shutters on bathroom window were broke. Our room was on ground level right by fountain. You could see through the shutters into our bathroom. Hope people enjoyed the show. Room was nothing special. Woke up kind of stiff and neck was sore. Room had a window unit air conditioner. It's an old hotel, I get it. But it was haphazardly installed and just sitting there with gaps all around window. Coffee pot was dirty inside where you put the water. Had water in it already with stuff floating in it. Could hear everything from neighboring rooms. If this was a 100 a night....then ok. But 330? Food at restaurant was good but was a fiasco. Made reservations at 3pm for 8:30. (Soonest they could get us in they said). Restaurant was only half full at 7 so we asked if we could get in earlier? They said no. Ok. We understand. Got there at 8 to wait. No one called out names. Watched people walk up and ask about their reservations. Apparently you get seated by complaining. Many got seated before us. One guy didn't even have a reservation. So at 8:30 our reservation time...I ask. She said they call out names. They didn't once actually. We finally got seated. Meal was good. Expensive...but good.
