ESTES PARK, Colo. – An overnight desk employee working at the historic Stanley Hotel in Estes Park won’t have any ghost sighting stories to tell family and friends – they’ll have something much better.
That’s because that employee came face-to-face with a black bear while working the graveyard shift Wednesday evening into Thursday morning.
Video obtained by Denver7 shows the unwanted guest wandering around the lobby of the Stanley Hotel, as if to make sure things at the hotel were running according to plan. You can watch the full video in the player above.
Luckily, it was so late that no guests were anywhere near the lobby area at the time of the wildlife encounter.
The overnight desk employee who shot the video told Denver7 the bear wandered in and wandered out just as quickly.
