Checked in at approximately 8pm and immediately used the restroom only to find all kinds of hair on the toilet and surrounding floor. Then decided to take a shower only to find hair in the corners of the tub. At this pointy my blood is boiling as I work in the Hospitality Industry and know how hard it is to get good people especially during Covid. I could tell this room was not cleaned. I proceeded to check the bed an pulled back the top sheet which was clean only to find long strands of black hair in the bed and sheets wrinkled from someone previously sleeping in the bed. My husband went to the front desk and they moved us to another room. The sheets were clean but not a clean room. Like the first room, it is not well maintained!!! Many broken items and very ran down, no up-keep in rooms. To say the least my expectation and the way they handled it was very un-professional. As we were checking out, no apology and the lady next to us found a ring in her sheets when she pulled her bed back, clearly not changing sheets in this hotel!! The nightly rate is outrageous and not worth the money!!

Stayed 2 nights in mid-October 2021 for our anniversary. It is a beautiful place and I understand that historic buildings get a pass on lots of things but there were too many downsides that completely ruined the experience. Initial impression of our room (234) was it was elegant but very dusty and the windows looking out at the lovely view were so dirty people had written things in the dirt. Curtains had unidentified stains on them. The cable box rebooted every time we changed the speed of the ceiling fan. The bathroom vanity was unstable and banged on the wall every time we touched it. The worst thing was the heat! First night it got up to 75 (was in the 50's outside) and only 1 window would open so no good cross breeze. We asked for it to be addressed but when we came back from an outing the 2nd day the temp. was 87! I was finally able to break another window loose and open it which helped. Engineering came in and said they couldn't fix it because it was a corner room and the heat for other rooms flowed through it. Front desk had no other room so we were stuck with no choice but to stay or lose our money. So many of these issues could be fixed and for over $400/night they should be! Won't be a repeat visitor. On the plus side the ghost tour was cute, restaurant food was good and the magic show in the speak easy was great.

This was a “bucket list” stay for me. This trip was planned prior to the pandemic and we were just able to take it. The first problem was parking. There is no parking for hotel guests as they sell spots to people for $10 to explore the property. Therefore. As a guest. You have to park in a dirt lot and walk to the hotel. Checking in you have to fight your way through people who are not guests. Then you check in and go to your room. Only to find people who are not staying at the hotel running up and down the corridors all night and all day long. My wife and I have never had such horrendous service before at a hotel that is based on service. We wanted a coffee and maybe a dessert. We went to the coffee bar and it was closed. We went to the restaurant and asked if we could possibly get coffee and dessert. we were immediately told “no. We are short staffed. We have no space available. And we can’t get you coffee”. So we went back when they said they would have space and staffing. We were again told no. And told to go to the bar. We went to the bar. Waited. Sat down. And we were again told no. The bartender told us “I serve drinks here. I don’t serve coffee”. I asked of coffee was not a drink anymore and he said if we didn’t want to order someone else would take our spot. Again. Worst experience I have ever had at a hotel of this caliber. Avoid this place at all costs. We then checked back at the time they said the

My wife and I enjoy staying at old grand hotels - hotels which were the best in the 1910’s and 1920’s (or older). Claridges in London. The Greenbrier, etc. we were hoping for a similar taste of elegance and luxury at the Stanley. What we found was an old tired facility with no charm. We arrived on a Sunday to find that besides being a hotel it is a tourist destination. The place was mobbed with day trippers. Then there was the problem of finding the desk to check in - or even where to park to check in. 2 overworked desk attendants- one of whom left when it was our turn to run an errand. 40 minutes after arriving we got our key and took the 1 and only elevator (a charming 1909 brass cage) to our room. It was supposed to be a suite. What it got were 2 rooms with a bathroom in between - you could not go from one side to the other if the bathroom was in use. There were 2 lamps in each room- all of which were so dim I figured management got a deal on 40 watt bulbs. Fortunately I use a kindle as you could not sit and read with the available light. And speaking of light the fixture in the bath was designed for 2 bulbs but only 1 worked. As to the closet - the one in the bedroom had no bar but lots of hangers on the floor with little hooks while the closet in the sitting room had a full size bar but only 2 hangers. There was a dirty towel hanging in the bath and I have no idea when the floor was last vacuumed - the stuff still on the floor when we walked in indicated it had been awhile. No AC but nice windows- of course there were no screens. The electrical system was outdated with too few outlets for modern life. Oh, and let’s not forget the clock radio with an iPhone adapter which was last used on the IPhone 4 or 5. It was not all bad - the mattress was pretty new and pretty comfortable; and the undersized restaurant- while more if a Gastro Pub than the elegant dining room were had hoped for - had really good food. The trout was terrific. So if you go to Estes Park stay elsewhere - the Stanley Aspire looked nice - but stop by for dinner but don’t forget to make a reservation - hotel guests do not get priority and with the day trippers hogging the seats in the lobby there is no comfortable place to wait for a table.

We stayed in the Lodge and enjoyed the experience. It boils down to managing expectations. The hotel has its quirks and if you don’t want to be dodging tour groups, stay at the Lodge. Quiet, decent although old, but that’s part of the charm. Many of the other reviews were accurate and we planned accordingly. Key points 1. Beds were very comfortable. 2. Property is old; there were a few maintenance items like missing lights in the hallway, cracked sink and 100 year old windows. Nothing was a deal killer. Liked the functioning windows. 3. The porch was our favorite part of the Lodge; sit there in the evening and you can eavesdrop on tours and enjoy the view. 4. Think of it like an “open campus” and you’ll be fine. Lots of people are around taking tours and wandering around. 5. It’s walkable to downtown, Safeway, Starbucks if that’s your jam. 6. Weirdly we had all the Keurig paraphernalia but no machine. We didn’t discover until well into our stay, which was fine and we didn’t ask. 7. As noted by others, this isn’t a full service hotel. They have a restaurant in both the main building and the Lodge but we also went to the Post restaurant and liked it. 8. Park in the back. Less crowded and easy access through the back door. The only supernatural thing that occurred was a wasp that snuck in the room was unkillable.
