We chose the Plains Hotel for a two-day stay, because it is located right downtown and is an historic property, which we have found can be good values and fun places to stay (as opposed to the cookie-cutter modern facilities) if they have been properly renovated. Making the reservation was no problem, the staff was helpful, and the room was... More

I'd give them a score of zero if that was an option. First time I stayed here, the rooms and common areas were not clean and the staff was surly. I thought I'd give them a pass based on what the front desk clerk said (was told "we're having illness issues with housekeeping"). Second time I tried to stay here,... More

Interesting building reception staff not helpful and we were told to park on a site by the railroad not very salubrious. The room did not smell fresh but we were able to open the window which helped ,beds clean and comfortable but furnishings tired and I still have the shivers when I think of the green stained flannel laid out...

We arrived early and were greeted by Clay who was very friendly and arranged to have our room cleaned quickly so we could check in. He also explained about parking which was in a nearby multi-story. This wasn't really a problem at all. Our room was clean, comfortable and had a new carpet. We had a view towards the depot... More

Chose this place on a whim online as a stop on our way to Yellowstone for our honeymoon. Not disappointed - the front desk staff were fun, friendly and helpful, recommending places to go for dinner, etc. The rooms are nice, not super fancy and I wasn't expecting them to be as large as they are inside. The bed was... More

The hotel didn't get off on the right foot. They lost my reservation due to a "new system". Good thing I had my confirmation email. The room is okay. Could use some updates. I know they are going for that old timey feel, but it looks more 70's than anything. The a/c in the window is held together by a... More

We were impressed by the beautiful lobby, especially the planets of the solar system painted on the ceiling. The hotel is right in the centre of the historic district. Parking is a problem. Our room was large and clean, had 2 double beds and a sofa area to watch TV, but in serious need of redecoration. The impression is dark,... More

I have yet to decide whether my research for an in-town hotel in Cheyenne was flawed or I simply missed the signals from other reviews. We had planned a two night stay in Cheyenne and selected the Plains. Upon arrival I quickly learned, to my dismay, that street parking was all that was available overnight and that after 10am in...

We stayed here for just one night, fabulous old hotel with many features, lovely clean too. Only issue we had really was the slow service at checking in, really nice guy but since ther was a wedding on and he was the only one at the desk, we waited a while being checked in then the room was a one...

So initially, we were impressed by the beautiful lobby and great service at the front desk in this historic hotel. Then, we went to our room. It was dark and dingy and in need of updating and a good cleaning. As we inspected the room, we discovered our sheets were stained and almost every towel was stained as well. We... More
