We went to Cripple Creek for the Ice Festival and decided to stay at the Gold King Mountain Inn. Nothing fancy, but nice clean rooms, with a microwave and small refrigerator. We asked about their specials when booking and they told us about the "Stay & Play" deal which included a Free Breakfast for 2 and a Crab Legs &... More

This hotel is located on the hillside in the Cripple Creek valley. It does not have a restaurant, casino, bar or a breakfast set up. If you want any of these, you will have to hop in their van for a trip down the hill to the center of town. The room was okay; it was clean. It was an... More

I was pleasantly surprised with the Gold King Mountain Inn. We took advantage of a comped room and since it was free we certainly can't complain. The room itself was clean but very dated. Carpet is worn, etc. We were on the first floor and didn't have a problem with smoke smell or noise. Service was very good. The air... More

This hotel hasn't been updated since the 70's or 80's (not bad if you pay 50) but for 120 too expensive for what you get. The hotel does not have a restaurant, bar or casino they are all located where you have to take a shuttle and there shuttle is a minivan. Poor hotel setup would be better to be... More

This place has the look of a chain hotel from the past that has been rebranded. Another reviewer stated it was originally a holiday inn express. Rooms are basic but fairly large. It has a large indoor pool with a jacuzzi/ hot tub attached to it. It is owned by the wildwood casino which is a five minute walk down... More

We were stuck in the town and needed a room. The hotel said they had one left but they would have to charge us extra since it was a busy week. Then the front desk asked us which room we wanted when we arrived. The money we spent for this horrible room we could have stayed at a Sheraton or... More

Don't stay here. The rooms are not like the web site pictures. When we made reservations we made them based on the Wildwood casino pictures. The hotel is not in the casino and is IPA the Hill above the Wildwood casino. The rooms are terrible. After checking in we went to town and checked out the rooms at the double... More

The staff at the GKMI is incredibly friendly and informative. They answered every question and called restaurants to see if they were open and serving certain menu items. They are also dog friendly!!! We would have rated higher but there were a lot if smokers that had stayed at the same time or in rooms near our "non-smoking room" which... More

When we booked this place NOTHING they published stated they were on EAST Galena Avenue -and your GPS will deliver you to a hole in town - so beware. However once you find the place it is fairly nice. Seems to be in transition from something else. And if you don't get the old grumpy woman who was at the... More
