First sight of this place is fabulously creepy, but inside it's charming. Rooms are sparkling, staff is friendly and easy going. So much wonderful history here. It's interesting to read up on the past of this fun hotel. Wish we had gone into the Boiler Room bar when we came back from the casinos, but we were tired. Summer visitors... More

The St. Nicholas was built as a Catholic hospital in 1893 and sometime after the 1970s was refurbished and converted into a hotel. These conversions are never smooth, which showed in our room, which was oddly shaped, resulting in some tight spots. On the other hand, it was clean and appropriately furnished. The bed was not quite as hard as... More

On a hilltop overlooking the town, we had a lovely night here in June. Outside the casino boundary, it is quaint, quiet and charming. No pool or restaurant (except continental breakfast), but a fine step back in time.

I stayed there last month to go visit a friend who was working in Cripple Creek. The place is very antique and scary looking, but it was nice. The only negative reviews I have on this hotel is that the house cleaning is bad. I was looking for my shoe and noticed that under the bed was completely full of... More

Came down to Cripple Creek for a quick getaway. Room #7 was very nice with the attached sunroom overlooking the town. I had pre-ordered a wine & cheese plate which was very nice before we headed down the hill for some gambling. Make sure you make time for a nightcap in the Boiler Room bar with Don the bartender in... More

The Hotel St. Nicholas was a marvelous place to stay! My girlfriend and I were recently there at the end of the Valentine's Day weekend and enjoyed our stay immensely. When we booked, there were still quite a few rooms remaining (for a Sunday night), however, by the time we had arrived they Sold Out! I believe that speaks to... More

In late October we spent a night at the unique and wonderful Hotel St Nicholas. This place is really cool --- every room is different and they're all extremely nice. Our room was beautiful and comfortable.There's a hot tub on the rooftop deck, a dry sauna on the second floor and a really cool little bar in the basement. We... More

We went to Cripple Creek for our anniversary weekend and stayed at the St Nicholas for one night, wish we had stayed both nights here instead of the other place but we were already prebooked for the weekend. We arrived around 4ish and were able to peek in on the other rooms before the rest of the guests arrived. All... More

We arrived at the Hotel about 2:00 and went in to see if we could get checked in. The lady helping us, Candace, said that we had to wait until 3:00 pm, but did we want to see the room? We agreed and went up to look it over. It did seem much smaller than originally expected. We did get... More

So glad we stayed here. Beautiful rooms that are all unique. The Boiler Room bar is a hoot with Don. Had a couple strange things happen that spooked me a little. The tv in the empty room next to us was on a channel with snow...thought I was walking into the Poltergeist movie. Lots of strange sounds in the night.... More
