Stay here for a few days once a year while visiting family. Has the look and feel (and signage) from the glorious gangster days. Old adobe, stucco, and tile. Nice big outdoor pool with lounge chairs -- even a couple of bbq grilles and a sink prep area. Comfortable hotel, but not modern. Bed is comfortable and sleep well, but... More

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel mostly because of the friendly hotel staff (Marie at the front desk is so sweet). This place will remind you of a hotel you would stay on a childhood family vacation. And that's a good thing! Just know when you book that you're not staying at the 4 Seasons. It's a bit dated,...

Wonderful safe community that makes you feel safe and... More

We were trying to book a double room on the same day on a Tuesday. Every hotel from Vegas to Henderson to Boulder was completely booked. I called the El Rancho at 9pm, left a message. Marcie actually called me back within 10 minutes. We got a comfortable double for $99 total. El Rancho is a standard motel. Everything was... More

We stayed at the El Rancho Boulder Motel on a recent trip because they are pet friendly. Our room was very clean and quiet, and like many other reviewers have mentioned the beds are soft, but comfortable. I'd recommend a stay here to those traveling with and without pets. The staff was friendly, it is within walking distance to a... More

I love family owned and operated hotels. I just happen to own one myself. Great place, clean and quite. The staff was friendly. Loved that they had flavored creamer for my coffee.. The beds slept well. Walking distance to everything in this little town.

The motel's owners summed it up. "...not a four star hotel but clean, comfortable and safe." To that I would add quiet, helpful and pet friendly with a small park nearby for the dog. Though not a destination, it's one of those affordable places - under $100 - that's a relief to find on a cross country trek.

I can't begin to say how wonderful this motel is. Its a gem just off of highway 93. We wanted a motel easy to get to, close to a restaurant and comfortable. I drive my elderly parents down to their winter home in Arizona and have previously stayed in super 8's in Las Vegas - never felt safe or comfortable... More

I stayed here in Boulder City because it was the first place on my route that got me away from the razzle-dazzle of Las Vegas. This motel is pet friendly for a per dog fee although you must go a block away to exercise your dog in a small park. The room was very clean but somewhat dated. It included... More

We stayed here in May for a couple of nights, the rooms were clean and tidy, and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The pool is lovely, and a real treat at the end of a hot day. There is ample parking and its just a short walk into Boulder City. This place is absolutely fantastic value for money,... More
