As an avid, "Virginian" watcher, I just had to visit Medicine Bow while driving through Wyoming. The Hotel was a wonderful surprise. It was beautiful, Service was great, and I don't know how they manage it, but, the freshest food we ate on the entire road trip was at the Virginian Hotel. Too Cool. One of the locals was kind...

Yes, you may someday find yourself in Medicine Bow (thereby increasing the population to 287) and, if so, you should consider carefully your options. They are limited and it is likely that you'll find yourself in the Virginian Hotel. As experiences in Medicine Bow go, it is at the top of the heap. But, you may ask, why a refig... More

Driving across the USA on the Lincoln Highway which passes right by the Virginian. This hotel is like no other built around the author Owen Wister who created the the Virginian stories.His log cabin is across the road and worth a visit. We arrived at lunchtime and soon discovered that the hotel is very much used by the locals as... More

We're extreme budget travelers, but we were able to afford the Owen Wister suite, which was the best room in the place. We both used the claw foot tub and enjoyed relaxing in the sitting room. The place is packed full of history and antiques. If you absolutely must have a bathroom in your room, make sure you get a... More

Okay - you don't stay in a town like Medicine Bow, Wyoming and expect the kind of accommodations you'd get in a larger town. With a population under 300 - you're here for other reasons. The Virginian Hotel is just a huge piece of history. In the old section, which is absolutely stunning, you won't find telephones, televisions or air... More

There is some interesting history in this old hotel and restaurant, but I can check this one off the list. Food was fine, definitely not anything average or better. Service was awful, one waitress yelled across the dining room the entire meal. Two different tables actually asked if they should leave because of her actions. Hotel rooms were interesting, but...

Quite by accident, we happened upon this gem. We stopped for breakfast. WOW. One of the best we have had in our travels. Steak and eggs outstanding. French toast, equal. Coffee was very good. Prices more than reasonable. You should have to pay just to be in this piece of history. Incredible bar area and dining. Like walking back 100... More

We had a Road Rally thru here and spent nite. Hotel is very dated but functional. Staff eager to please and polite--fun at night. Food filling but mediocre (overcooked steaks, "homemade chicken fried steaks" w/brown gravy from a can). BUT--best part was a tour of museum and history across the road by Marv! Re: sleeping--forget it. Trains come by on... More
