Welcome to the Cripple Creek Hospitality House & Travel Park
The Cripple Creek Hospitality House & Travel Park is a historic Cripple Creek hotel and full-service RV park. The hotel was originally constructed in 1901 as the Teller County Hospital to provide state-of-the-art medical care for a booming population in the Cripple Creek mining district. Constructed as the largest and grandest hospital in the area, boasting several wards, a modern operating room, a grand staircase (built extra-wide for gurneys) and meandering corridors, the Teller County Hospital witnessed many booms and busts from 1901 through the late 1950’s. The hospital closed its doors permanently in 1960 after last serving as a nursing home.
The hospital was purchased in 1963 and lovingly restored to serve as a beautiful victorian hotel. Antique furnishings abound throughout 14 guest rooms, lobby and other public spaces. Each guest room is adorned with its own unique decor and each door bears the name of how that particular room may have been used when once a hospital. The Travel (RV) Park was added in the mid 1960s to respond to the latest trend in travel – the Recreational Vehicle. This trend is as popular as ever, and with full hook-ups in all RV sites including water, sewer and electric, along with dedicated primitive tent areas, we are proud to offer many diverse camping options.
The Cripple Creek Hospitality House & Travel park offers year-round accommodations for hotel and long-term RV stays. Seasonal RV and tent camping is available May through September.

This place was sooo cool. It's just beautiful and the location is so peaceful and scenic. I cannot adequately describe the feeling you get when you arrive here but you feel suspended in time and in a very special place. I've stayed in several B&Bs and this place was so authentic. It's just cool. The front desk folks are awesome....
Great and friendly people, rooms and hotel have great character. Good breakfast. Enjoyed the stay. The hotel is a few minutes drive from the centre of town which is only casinos.
Cripple Creek is rife with historic charm of the forgotten West. Most "boom" towns have been paved over, completely redone, or fallen apart completely. This lovely hotel mimics the overall feel of the town in that they've salvaged a delightful old building (a hospital) and turned it into something magical.
