Ourselves and another couple had gone to Cripple Creek to go to the casino and we stayed at the Hotel St Nicholas. Booking was very easy and great rate. The room was very nice and comfortable. They day we left we explored the hotel a bit and saw all the rooms on the main level. There was a huge room...

Wonderful old hotel with lots of history on the top of a hill in Cripple Creek. Great views and nice feel to the place. If you are looking for a modern 4-5 star hotel, this isn't it. However, we found the people friendly and fantastic hosts, a good continental breakfast and a free shuttle down and up the hill. If...

This hotel was the best thing about our stay in Cripple Creek. Bed comfortable, WiFi worked, check in was easy. Decor was pleasingly quaint; parking was convenient; shower worked; and service was pleasant. No complaints. The town of Cripple Creek, however, was another question. The town has been ruled by outside greed interests. First mining, now gambling. The casinos have...

Yes the floors creak and so do the doors, but what do you expect from a historic site... The room we were in was #14 on the 3rd floor. I ALWAYS stay on the top floor or I don't stay, due to the noise that the floors make. No elevator, so if you don't like stairs find another hotel. The...

We stayed at Hotel St. Nicholas on a Tuesday night the end of August 2016. Check in was simple enough since we parked behind the place and went in the back door and went down a floor to check in. Our room was on their second floor and since they do not have an elevator, we had to take our...

Beautiful old historic hotel. All wood floors which creaked all night long whenever anyone in any room or in the hallway moved. Beds in #17 and #18 were very soft and need to be replaced. Check in was just so-so; young (teenage?) girl was not very forthcoming about activities, meals, etc. Had to ask for hair dryers, extra pillows and...

You can tell there is history in the walls of this hotel. But the rooms were cozy and comfortable. It was in walking distance to the main street area but there is a huge hill to walk down and then back up so beware or you can take the casino shuttles or city shuttles as well.

We stayed 2 nights and loved the atmosphere. The staff was great and we had a wonderful stay. The Boiler Room Bar proved to be a place to find a wealth of information from the local people who were there- from the best places to eat and the attractions to see. It is up the hill from the main drag,...

We absolutely loved this hotel. It was unique and the staff was AWESOME. The Boiler Room (the bar) was so cool and the service was great. I highly recommend this be the place you stay on your next visit!

When visiting historic Cripple Creek, do you choose to stay at a modern hotel and casino or an old-time hotel that dates to the 1890s? For a couple of history buffs like us, the choice was a no-brainer. The Hotel St. Nicholas at 303 3rd Avenue is a restored hospital that traces its roots to 1898, sits atop a hill...
