This hotel is not for everyone. It is a truly historic hotel, not an old hotel that has been modernized to look like a Hilton. It has the charms and the quirks and foibles of an old building, but with amenities like a fridge, coffee maker, and microwave. This is not a place for a one night stay, as the... More

We stayed here on a tour around western USA. We were looking forward to our stay in Cheyenne after a long trip from Denver. When we arrived we were given home made cookies which were AMAZING! The hotel reception area was lovely and we assumed that our rooms would be of similar standard. We were on the top floor and... More

Before and during arrival. Clay made my stay, A great one. This hotel has history and charm. A great restaurant adjacent to the lobby. Great choice of food. This location also offer oversize parking with shuttle pick up. Much to do within walking distance. Will return.

Travel back in time staying at the hotel which was built two years before the Lincoln Highway pushed thru. It didn't get a 5 because of threadbare stair carpet and a couple of less-than-attentive front desk gals. Another was Very helpful. Built in 1913, the hotel has not parking lot; you stroll two blocks to a lot or building. No... More

Since all rooms from Cheyenne to Denver were full, The Plains made sure to take full advantage of that and charge me 160.00 to sleep in a single sized bed for 5 hours. I guess they decided to make as much profit as they could. Lucky for me, I have been able to use other lodging in my subsequent Cheyenne... More

The hotel is an old hotel with that history in mind throughout the hotel. Part of the charm in staying here is the historic rustic feel of the hotel while having modern amenities. Not everything is tighty or in perfect condition, but everything does work if you give it a minute or two. The hotel was built around 1911 and... More

This hotel has no parking. The elevator smells like someone died while smoking 17 cigarettes at once. The room was way too hot and the heater was missing a front, making it a danger to small curious children. The couch's fold up bed still had wrinkled used sheets folded up into it. Taking a shower proved impossible, only severely dirty... More

Pros: 1) very friendly, earnest and sincerely accommodating staff 2) Historic Hotel 3). very nice, spacious King bed rooms. Cons: 1). Very small, slow but uniquely antique elevator; you will be taking the stairs if you are able to walk whenever a large group is in the house 2). non-King rooms are quite small 3). Technology issues seem to challenge... More
