Contrary to many people, I enjoyed the movie created by Kubrick. I know Stephen King wasn't a fan and made his own television series which was filmed at the Stanley Hotel. I know the Stanley Hotel was the place where King really wanted the movie set. I am not a fan of the television series and think is was seriously miscast, but those are my thoughts and opinions.
The hotel was set in a beautiful place, and the ghost stories were just as interesting as the history, but the hotel looked like it was falling apart and not really being cared for like it should be. It wasn't at all spooky, and the tour was a little dull (however the tour guide was fun). It didn't cost much, and I am glad I did it, but it isn't something I would need to do again, and in all honesty I probably wouldn't stay at the hotel if given the chance.
