The Stanley Hotel has certainly had its share of stories about unexpected visitors roaming the halls and rooms of the historic hotel.This time, the visitor was very much real and visible and big. It was a black bear that wondered into the lobby of the hotel to check out a few things.

How exactly the bear got into the hotel is uncertain, but it, according to the Reporter-Herald, was there long enough to get on some furniture, sniff some things out, then leave. The hotel staff posted on Facebook the following, "We'll make an exception to the rule about jumping on the furniture".

Here's the video of the encounter.
