I passed this sign last week in Cherokee, NC.  This is my new favorite motel:

The Hitching Post is another motel immortalised on-screen by the Coens, employing it for their frost-bitten 1996 masterwork Fargo, as the scene of Jerry's (William H Macy) arrest by police. But if a 90s indie thriller isn't reach enough, the area is also home to Minnesota's biggest black ash tree, measuring an impressive 65ft.

that's a big black ash.

As a child, a family friend was caretaker at this place right after it shut down and before they began restorations.

We got to swim there free anytime.

Nope:

Local lore also says that when the Stephen King movie "The Shining" was filmed, the owners of the Mount Washington were approached about using the hotel in the movie. Though the owners declined, rumors persisted that the Mount Washington was the inspiration for the story. As fate would have it, MacPherson happened upon Stephen King at a filling station and couldn't resist asking him about this. King stated plainly that he had never been to the resort, thus ending any speculation on this subject. Of course if he had stayed at the Mount Washington he might be in the business of writing happier stories!

King wrote "The Shining" while staying at the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado. The Kubrik movie did its exteriors at the Timberline Hotel in Mount Hood, Oregon.  The 1997 t.v. miniseries filmed exteriors and interiors back at the Stanley.

We don't even care that it's actually situated in Woodstock, Illinois, as opposed to Punxsutawney, Philadelphia, like the film.

When I lived in Denver my sister visited me once and we decided to swing by the Stanley on the way back from Rocky Mountain National Park since it was on the way. We looked around for a bit, and when we were about to leave I considered going into the restaurant area but decided I had explored enough. When we got back we looked up the place further and found out it was where Dumb and Dumber was filmed. I was pretty upset that I missed out on the chance to stand in the area where those immortal words were uttered: "No way....that's great! WE LANDED ON THE MOON!"

And while Kubrick had a second unit shoot the exterior as part of the helicopter shots during the opening, all the shots of the exterior of the hotel with the actors were actually shot in the UK on a backlot.  They actually built a massive facade for the hotel, though if you look at it carefully, it doesn't match the Timberline.

It is also the same hotel where Rob Lowe took his underaged date for the sex tape.

Actually, everything except the exterior shots were done at the other end of the island at what is now Mission Point Resort. They're Tower Museum has a floor devoted to that movie and the actual sound stage is used as a large banquet room.
As for the "jacket and tie required", that's not until after 6:00pm.

It wasn't shown as a hotel in the movie, but the dark grand hall that Hannibal Lecter's cage is in when he skins the guard and escapes was filmed in the ballroom of the William Penn Omni hotel in Pittsburgh. You can check it out if you're staying there. Very spooky looking even in real life.

The best thing about the Stanley Hotel is that all the rooms have the standard selection of t.v. channels available, plus two extra closed-circuit ones. One constantly plays an interesting half-hour loop of Jay Leno demonstrating, starting up, and driving around one of his Stanley Steamers, the steam-powered car invented by the hotel's namesake back in the 1900s. (There's another Steamer on display in the lobby.)

The other plays "The Shining," over and over again, 24 hours a day.

This. Many 'Merkins have far less grasp of geography than Europeans. And I can say this having grown up less than an hour's drive from Punxsutawny, PA.

Knowing Leno, he probably gets to stay there for free for letting them use that.
