Finding a suitable motel in Boulder City, Nv was becoming impossible due to the aging, rundown string of unexceptable ones...until we found this one. Their general manager, Cheryl, was a delight from the start. She showed us around, promised theirs was the best motel in town, and she was true to her word. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet.... More

We stay at El Rancho Boulder frequently every summer. Nice, simple, no frills "ma and pop" motel. Big pool, good car & boat parking, friendly staff, and within walking distance to many good restaurants in town. However, wish they would do a little spruce up to the rooms: new carpet, drapes & chairs would be nice.

After a night in the Excalibur in Las Vegas, what a relief to be in a real and human place again. If we ever pass this way again I will avoid L.V. and come straight here. This motel has real family feel to it. The welcome was great and the motel was great. The room was fully equipped and clean.... More

My very first review on tripadvisor was on the El Rancho Motel 10 years ago, I have since posted twice more and each time I have reiterated what a special place this is. We recently visited again and once more we found exceptionally friendly and helpful staff. Our room was clean, comfortable and very quiet. Everything we needed at the... More

What a great little hotel. The rooms may be dated, but the amazing staff more than makes up for it! They went out of their way to make sure our room was perfect. Even during an insanely busy 4th of July weekend, we had a super-early check-in. The motel is within walking distance to some great cafes (see my next... More

Very nice, clean motel and helpful staff at very resonable rate. Dated, but very clean property with huge swimming pool. Just one level motel, which you can back up to and unload. Also, very good diner a couple doors down called Southwest Diner.

I love the retro look of this place but my body disliked the bed and pillows provided. Ugh. Room was otherwise ok. Location is quiet central to the town. You can walk to local restaurants easily. Pool was closed during my visit.

This is the type of motel I remember staying at as a kid. Not a big fancy chain, but a simple, down home motel. Nothing extravagant nor high end. A basic room with few extras. No hair dryer, no complimentary shampoo. A couple of cheap bars of soap and a shower cap and makeup remover pad for the ladies. There... More

I was traveling with my large dog and made a reservation at this motel. Great rates, great room, very quiet. My daughter in law had asked around and everyone she talked to recommended this motel. The dog and I spent 3 wonderful nights there. I would stay there again.

During a recent family road trip, we decided to visit the Las Vegas area. We visited the Las Vegas strip and all that good stuff, but we wanted a quiet, relaxed place to stay the night, and the strip isn't it! While passing through Boulder City after visiting the Hoover Dam, we saw that neat and colorful neon sign for... More
