I looked at Tripadvisor and local websites to find something out of the ordinary where we could stay, having earned a trip away from our 6 young children after many years. This property looked charming and the unique appeal of being an old hospital was too much to resist. We called the hotel directly and booked a large room with 2 queens for $100/night (but they didn't have anything available for our second night, so planned to move on after 1 nights' stay). When we arrived, we inspected the room- it was Ok to look inside all of the rooms if the doors were open they told us... and decided on a different room that was available both nights (the nursery), but wasn't highly sought after because it was a double bed and small, but did have a private bath. Good choice. The size was fine since we were planning on spending most of the day exploring and just nights sleeping in the room. Each of the rooms is named after its original use (clearly identified on the door in period hand lettering), a walking tour inside the building is neat!
All said and done, this is a very safe bet for someone considering something out of the ordinary. It's very nicely furnished- old wheelchairs from when the place was actually a hospital (1900's) and clean!
We would stay here again if travelling as a couple- but wouldn't as a whole family (remember 6 kids). The quiet hours are 10pm to 8am, and seem well respected. There's a small table of rolls and juice and coffee in the morning, and wireless internet that is best received from the RV area- the antenna is pointed to the RV park. Located behind the main building, the RV park doesn't distract from the appeal of the hotel (RV in the name made me leary).
If you go to Cripple Creek, pick up a book they sell in the lobby- very handsome and underpriced ($6) softcover book that includes driving and walking tours of Cripple Creek with accompanying photos of today and 'in the day' along with brief overviews- I wish we had seen it before spending 2 days here.
