Very informational, the tour guides make it a lot of fun. Aside from the parking fee (which I think is waived if you’re staying) it is a good way to spend a few hours and get some dinner!

The history of the Stanley brothers is more interesting than the hotel itself. They really play up the “haunted” aspect of the hotel. You can take pictures anywhere you have general access
