Several of the casino hotels (and two of the casinos themselves) are actually closed. down. Those left were unappealing in looks and smell and we were losing heart. So, we considered ourselves lucky to stumble on the Cripple Creek Inn three blocks behind the Palace Hotel Dining Room. Our room was clean, quiet, and with a window to the corner overlooking the main street of town, airy ( I don't think our room had AC which may be a problem during a hot spell but our evening was quite cool). The staff was most pleasant and helpful, and the parking lot under the inn with an elevator was most convenient.. Just so you know, this is not a 5 star place; it's a basic place where the basics are delivered quite nicely. We'd choose the Cripple Creek Inn again.
