The Creepiest Places You Can Stay Overnight In America

The Stanley Hotel: Estes Park, CO


Widely regarded as one of the spookiest places in America, The Stanley Hotel was the inspiration for Stephen King’s thriller novel, The Shining. Set at the base of an ominous mountain range, the hotel is home to spirits known to slam doors, play piano, and chatter amongst themselves. The fourth floor, where the concert hall was once held is said to be the most haunted space in the hotel. Guests can partake in one of The Stanley’s many paranormal ghost tours—including a five-hour long paranormal investigation held late at night. Can you say “Heeere’s Johnny!”
