Although rumors of this place being haunted are vague and unsubstantiated, some employees and locals claim that this hotel is actually the place that inspired the Overlook hotel in Stephen King’s “The Shining”. As Stephen King has himself stated that a certain “Colorado resort” (Stanley) was not the inspiration for the hotel, possibly the rumors are true.
