This hotel is not properly represented on Hotwire. Most of the time, on Hotwire, you get a regular room and regular amenities for Hotwire prices. While these people claim to be a three star hotel they also have certain, dinky, interior, tiny rooms that are one star and “what you get for that rate”. These rooms do not offer internet,... More

This is a very interesting and quaint hotel. Right downtown Cheyenne. Across from the visitors info and old depot. Rooms are very good and lobby is really neat. Sara, who helped us at the front desk was very accommodating! She was very sweet and helpful.

This is definitely an experience. It's not new and fancy but it is roomy and right in town. The staff was friendly and we enjoyed ourselves. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that you have to park on the street,BUT there are plenty of spaces.

This hotel is in the center of downtown Cheyenne. Everything is walkable from the hotel. This hotel does need work but it is a historic hotel and really a beautiful place to see . Everything was clean and well kept . The bathroom needed updating but was clean . Great location

My family stayed for one night and we all agreed we will never stay here again. When we arrived to the hotel our car battery died so when we asked the maintenance person if he could give us a jump so we can get a new battery, we were told that he doesn’t carry jumper cables because he “keeps his...

I was looking for a hotel downtown that would have a sense of history and this was exactly what I found. Yes, the hotel is old, but it is a historic landmark. We stayed on the 3rd floor with a view of the movie theater across the street. The bed was fantastic and the bathroom had good facilities. We had... More

Stayed here on our way to Yellowstone. Quick overnight in Cheyenne. We've stayed in a number of historic hotels and understand that they can be quirky. Getting stuck in the original elevator wasn't a big deal (we used the stairs from that point on) but the traffic on the street below was very loud all night long to the point... More

This was my one and only stay at this hotel. I can not believe the health department has not stepped in and closed it down. The room was filthy. The towels looked like rags....stained and tattered. The carpet was stained and pieced together. I would not even take my shoes off. The air conditioner had parts missing and looked as... More

This was one of the only hotels that had a room available when I was travelling, so I hoped for the best. Well, won't dispute that the hotel has character. It is definitely historic in every sense. Down to the musty smell that permeates the lobby, hallway and rooms. The room was very small and dingy. I can't imagine when... More
