Wildwood Casino has unveiled plans to construct a 104 room hotel in Cripple Creek, Colorado, this May. Joseph Canfora, Wildwood Owner, said in a news release that their goal was to design a hotel that would deliver an excellent experience at a price that consumers would find affordable.
The Gold King Inn, the current hotel the casino has, will be rebranded to the Wildwood Inn. The project will cost $14 million and is set to be finished in August 2020. According to the Wildwood Casino, the plan is already financed and the new hotel was designed by and will be constructed by Comstock & Associates, an architecture firm.

The brand new hotel will have a 1,000-square foot meeting space and will have a rooftop where events can be hosted. The hotel will feature high roller suites as well, and there will be 10 of these suites. Joseph Canfora said the hotel will offer rooms at affordable prices.
This development will be one of the few others set to take place in the area as Wildwood. Competitor, Bronco Billy’s, also recently obtained permission to construct a 199-room hotel with some renovations at the current casino. Another competitor in the area, Triple Crown, also announced plans to build a 150 room hotel which will be placed adjacent to the complexes in the gambling district.
The Gold King Inn hotel has 67 rooms and it will continue to provide rooms and overnight accommodation. The Gold King Inn, which was recently renovated now boasts a remodelled lobby and upgraded rooms. The new hotel will be built near to the current one and both hotels will be connected through a walkway.
Joe Canfora, Wildwood co-owner, said that Cripple Creek was in need of new establishments and developments in order for it to diversify and expand to reach its full potential.
