Colorado’s Stanley Hotel may be known as the inspiration for Stephen King’s The Shining, but the facility recently had to deal with another uninvited guest.

Instead of a ghost, this time it was a bear.

[post_ads]According to, Stanley Hotel Vice President Reed Rowley said the bear reportedly opened the lobby door of the Estes Park facility and entered the historic building early Thursday morning.

Rowley revealed that only the front desk supervisor was working at the time and recorded the incident. The bear walked into the lobby, climbed over several pieces of furniture and eventually walked out of the lower level door.

The Twitter account of Fox News Denver posted the video of the incident online:

The hotel was occupied by around 300 guests, but none were impacted by the bear’s short visit.

Despite the bear having fun in the lobby, the Stanley Hotel suffered no damage, but some furniture was rearranged by the curious animal.
