“Not for everone's taste/ this is a historic hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014 via mobile

The Hotel is run by the local historical society. It was built in the early 1930 era. Pictures of the construction of Boulder Damn adorn the walls of the hotel. There is a museum. The hotel is furnished to the period of construction. We stayed in the Art Deco room for $120.00 a night. This was a small suite with all the amenities, 2 televisions and real glasses and silverware. I will enclose some pictures. The hotel is not really appropriate for children. The attached restaurant is very good.

An interesting and historic hotel an easy drive from Las Vegas. The lobby is delightful and the lady who welcomed us, sorry we had just flown in from the UK and driven direct to the hotel so was tired and I didn't note her name, was lovely. They don't serve dinner but located close to the main street so plenty of dining options. Breakfast was good. Overall a good place to stay outside of Vegas . Would certainly stay again.

We stayed for one night and loved this historic hotel. Beautiful place with great history. Staff was friendly. Lobby is comfortable. Our room was very large and had a nice view of the street front. The bed was heavenly!!!!! We would definitely stay again!

We spent two nights at the Boulder Dam Hotel. It is charming, and the renovations are sensitive to original building. The breakfast was nice; the location was lovely. However, I stay at hotels to sleep, first and foremost. I need a clean and comfortable bed, and a relatively quiet sleeping environment. I've travelled for 30 years and stayed at hotels -- I am realistic. But, when our neighbors arrived to their room at midnight and had been drinking, it was like they came into our room, too. We heard nearly everything they said, thanks to an adjoining door. Then they turned their TV on and promptly fell asleep. The TV must have also been near the adjoining door because we could hear it clearly. The next night we had new neighbors who also had the TV on, but low. We could hear it clearly. I think you should be able to talk and have your TV on without keeping your neighbors awake. Not the place for me.

Also, did not feel that the bed met my standards for cleanliness, and that definitely contributed to an uncomfortable stay.

We wanted an alternative to staying in Las Vegas and we got exactly what we were looking for. The old building is beautifully restored and has oodles of old-school charm. The rooms are small for more than an overnight stay (not a lot of storage) and feel a little dated, but are very clean and comfortable. Boulder City Historic District is a pleasant area to stay in with nice restaurants and bars. The included breakfast was the best we had on this trip. Overall amazing value, great feeling of wellbeing, and well away from the seedy and crass Las Vegas.

Stayed one night to visit the Hoover Dam. We were greeted by "Sandy" very pleasant, funny and helpful. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Bathroom was small, but wasn't a problem, updated and very clean. The breakfast that came with your stay was good and nice variety. Boulder City is a very clean town, wish we would have had more time to stay. Definitely recommend this hotel!

If location matters you can walk to every restaurant and antique shop in historic Boulder City in minutes. Waling back in the lobby one again feels at home with softly playing jazz from thr 20;s, the piano and elegant lobby and places to sit inside and out. The breakfast that comes with is a full sit down meal one can order seated from a variety of options. Note room service useally in the afternoons is on request, otherwise by default they will leave your room alone. There is an elevator and the accommodation is well suited for couples and families.

Room Tip: second floor near the staircase for ease of access.
