Recent guest reviews

Historic hotel but with that expect a small room and just ok room fiurnishings. Make sure you see the illusionist and watch the elk in the park nearby.

Wonderful old hotel. I love older hotels but this hotel is too commercialized ruining the atmosphere. Our tv volume was messed up called front desk and had to leave voicemail never had anyone address the issue. Beds are very uncomfortable. You can't adjust the heat had fans going and it was still way too hot when it was 40 degrees outside. My husband and I both was almost burned in the shower as the shower went from being ideal temp to extremely not then extremely cold. Great hotel to tour but wouldn't waste my money to sleep here again

Room was so hot we couldn't sleep. Dinner at Cascades was over priced and not at all appetizing. Over all condition of hotel seemed neglected.

Confusion at check in, room was dirty and included dog food from previous occupants, fold away bed was unusable (like a sheet on metal springs), room was 84 degrees, was told to use a fan to blow air in, had to prop window open with a broken stick, room never got cooler than 75 degrees, room service never cleaned room the 2nd day, I was handed towels and told they were done for the day at 4 (I was gone from 8am-330 and no Do Not Disturb sign was ever on my door), no newspapers in the morning, only 1 restaurant (way over priced and not very good), no path or sidewalk to town (walk on busy street or through a weed field).

Historical hotel that I've passed by since I was a child. Charming and interesting. The hotel is in need of repairs and paint.

Historic hotel in a beautiful area. Expensive but worth the experience.

The Stanley is charming and elegant!! Love the visit and the ghost tour was fun. Does not disappoint!!

Incredible historic property; however, very poorly managed and the room cleanliness was terrible. Limited amenities and no AC as can be expected for a historic property but our room was covered in dust and the hotel staff did not seem to care when informed. Great property, below average experience.

The Stanley is interesting mostly because of its historical and 'haunted' qualities. However, though the rooms aren't terrible, they are hardly worth the price you pay for them. We stayed at the Lodge one night, which was actually nicer than the main hotel we stayed in the second night. You would be better off to take the tour around the hotel property and stay somewhere else than to actually stay the night at The Stanley.

A fantastic stay! The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The illusionist show was superb. I'm already looking to come back. Thank you!

We love the Stanley, not what we exspected, we have stayed there before. Staff not so friendly, charges to room that were not ours, no amenities at all, no place to buy things we needed because of no amenidies . could not find ice or vending. No the shinning movie to watch. Was not pleased with this visit

I have had much better service in hotels that cost half the price. The Stanley prides itself on being upscale, it may want to invest in training their staff and improving their rooms. Our room had no ducted heating and we had the choice of unbearably hot or opening the bathroom window and letting the 25 degree howling winds through our room to cool it down. Even when the window was shut, freezing particles of snow got through the cracks. The staff was universally uninterested in any guest concerns and with the exception of the bar staff, acted like every request, a room service menu, for example, was the height of unreasonableness. Why there was no menus in the rooms is still a mystery. Our Christmas buffet server had to be requested twice to take a drink order after 10 minutes of waiting, and when I tried to confirm my reservation the day before, I was met with an aggressive woman who snapped, 'they had 500 bookings and could not be expected to find my name quickly'. Perhaps the Stanley Hotel staff have not heard of alphabetical order? We have stayed at many hotels and were especially excited to celebrate our wedding anniversary and Christmas at the Stanley. Needless to say, our excitement and good cheer soon changed to disappointment and finally offense. Don't waste your money on this hotel. It's so busy telling everyone how upscale it is it forgets to actually deliver on the promise.

Beautiful place with and even more beautiful view. Restaurant was amazing. Check in was clumsy and we were given an incorrect room. It took a few minutes but we did get moved. We ordered room service and the kitchen seemed bothered. We waited almost 2 hrs and could only leave a message. They never did bring our food. Wouldn't keep me from staying here again, just don't rely on room service for your dinner.

Great place wonderful staff great breakfast at lodge. Parking with concert going on not so good had to park half mile away and walk other than that was great place

No hot water in shower. Room too warm, even though night was cool (Oct 9). Paid $42 for an ounce of good scotch.

The lobby is lovely, the rooms are rundown and not clean. No air conditioning. Rotting steps, worn furniture and carpet.

We stayed in the lodge which was quieter than the Stanley. The breakfast was excellent. Loved our stay we will be back!

There is some construction going on in the self-parking area at the Stanley Hotel, so we parked in the dirt lot and toted our luggage uphill to the reception area. Only then did we find out that our rooms were in the Aspire, across the street and we had to check in there. Also, we attempted to check in at 4:20, and our rooms was still not ready. No email or other communication informed us that we were not in the mail hotel or that our room was not ready on time. Fortunately, the Aspire is brand new and was totally quiet and luxurious, although there was no microwave to be found in the building.

My wife and I stayed here to attend a wedding. Our room was cramped and way too hot to sleep comfortably. There was a thermostat but the cover had been broken off of it and it didn't seem to do anything. The hair dryer didn't work. We stayed 2 nights but did not get cleaning after the first night. Both mornings, the hotel staff knocked on our door even though we had placed the 'privacy please' card outside. In addition to all of that, the hotel runs frequent 'tours'. This means that groups of non-guests are frequently guided around the building, including right outside our room! The walls are not exactly soundproof, so this provided a very unwelcome disruption. Overall we were very disappointed given the price. This was the kind of experience we expect at a place like Motel 6, not a 'luxury' hotel.

Great once they moved us from the condo to the main building
