The staff at Bronco Billy's were so down to earth! If your looking for a "high class" luxury hotel in Cripple Creek don't bother! You are in an old gold mining town for gosh sakes! What a wonderful little town with so much Historic charm! Everyone there is either working in many a place under the same roof or working... More

We stayed in the Bronco Billy's hotel that is down the street from the casino. All the rooms are located on the 2nd floor. The building was an old brick building, so I didn't know what to expect, but the room was delightful. The room was very spacious with nice touches that reminded you of a western town, and the...

We have dear friends who have a cabin outside of Cripple Creek. Our children grew up together and this gathering now included grandchildren meeting. We rented a room in town at Bronco Billy's Hotel. The rooms are small due to the age of the hotel but very clean with a most comfortable bed and very nice bathroom. Never even entered... More

We really liked Bronco Billy's as a whole. It was my birthday and I appreciated the free meal at the Home Cafe. The room was very nice, the staff was excellent-of all the employees only had a bad experience with the dealer wearing the raiders Howie Long jersey ofcourse.!- But that went well with the theme...never trust a Raiders fan!...

I had thought I was going to stay at the hotel shown, but, the hotel has been moved into the same building as the casino. The casino and hotel are very nice. The hotel has been updated to resemble the original theme of Cripple Creek during it's "hayday". My husband and I loved the room and the casino. Very clean... More

I had a great time at Bronco Billy's hotel and casino. Stayed one night on a Wednesday. The room was decent size, king bed, small but adequate bathroom, all in old style western look. Although over the casino the room was very quiet. The casino is nice sized with a verity of slots and table games. The cost of the... More

When we reserved our room, there was nothing available on the south side but the clerk said that they would put us on the east side that had some views. We arrived at the hotel to find a new sign stating that we now needed to check in at the casino. OK, down the hill, across the street and through... More

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
