DENVER — We’re checking in at some places you should check out here in Colorado.

Turns out, our state is home to some hotels, motels and lodges that are hauntingly unique. From the Estes Park hotel that inspired a Stephen King book and a famous horror movie, to the mountain hideaway where you can help spot wildfires. We’re making a reservation at some unusual getaways in the Centennial State.

We’ll take you to the southern Colorado motel where you can get a room with a view of your own drive-in movie theater. And, we’ll visit the Front Range resort where bigger definitely doesn’t mean better. We’ll also tell you about an overnight stay at a tree house that’s nothing like the one the neighborhood kids used to hang out in.

We’ve dispatched FOX31’s talented team of photojournalists all over the state to help us put together “The Newcomer’s Guide to Colorado’s Craziest Hotels.”  Watch here:
