We took a cross country ride and wound up in the old mining town of Cripple Creek Colorado. We made reservations sight unseen prior to our arrival with Bronco Billy's Hotel and Casino. We arrived this evening in the town, and were unimpressed with the exterior of the building, BUT WAIT! We got the keys (real keys, not electronic cards)... More

It was my parents anniversary. We have in the past stayed at Century, but they were full. Bronco Billy's had a double open and it was great! The rooms were small, but clean and very comfortable. There was a fridge and microwave. The only complaints I have is no elevator which was fine for me, but was tough for my... More

Looking around the town we didn't see many other options that appeared like they would be much better. Our room wasn't spotless but it wasn't dirty either. The shower was very small and was a plastic slip-in thing instead of tile so the shower made all kinds of popping noises as you moved. The toilet wouldn't flush with one try,... More

We were so glad we stumbled upon this gem of a hotel after driving 33 hours straight from Florida! After checking some of the nearby hotels/motels, we were getting discouraged we would find anything and then came across this place. The rooms are so quaint and charming it reminded us of a bed and breakfast. The bathrooms were large, the... More

We love the hotel!! Its so quaint and the furnishings are beautiful. My husband and I stayed 2 nights in room 9 and it was perfect. Now, the rooms are small (remember its a historic mining town hotel), but again so tastefully decorated and spotless! The staff is warm and friendly and cannot do enough for you. Our daughter spent... More

My husband and I stayed 2 nights and found the hotel to be very nice. The rooms are cozy, (I.E. small) so don't pack much luggage. The room was quite comfortable and clean. We were in room #1 and my main "complaint" is that we were right next to the ice machine. There were people heading out EARLY in the... More

My mother and I stayed in room nine. At the front of hotel. The room was beautiful. No complaints of any kind. I enjoyed my stay! I would stay there again. Be prepared for stairs, for the rooms are upstairs. But I did not mind...goodness....I can use the exercise. :)

My wife and I stayed here in early May. The staff was very friendly and efficient. The rooms were fairly small but very adequate and well appointed. The location is great, right in the middle of Cripple Creek. We would stay here again.

We stayed at Bronco Billy's on January 8,2014. When we reserved the room, we asked for the Eat, Stay, Play package. This was the middle of the week and we paid $69 for a very nice king room, with 2 meals at the Home Cafe. When we both earned 250 points at the casino we got $20 back, so the... More

We stayed at Bronco Billy's January 4th. The room itself was small, but it was so charming we didn't mind. It was also absolutely spotless! The hotel keeper was very accommodating and so friendly. This place is a hidden gem!
