This hotel gets a very poor rating from me. I made a reservation almost 2 weeks ahead of arrival, by phone, using my credit card to secure the room. I explained that we would be arriving late, as we were traveling cross country. However, when we arrived, at 11:00 p.m., we were told that there were no rooms available. I... More

rooms are clean and quiet (how could they not be in Wyoming?). Staff is friendly. don't hesitate to stop there. In addition the bar right in front of the motel is nice and cheap. People kindly welcomed me. free Wi-Fi with acceptable bandwidth.

It would be a great place (location) if it was clean! Very dirty, dusty, moldy. Sheets, mattress, and covers didn't even feel clean. Chairs outside we're broken. I could go on and on... I guess you get what you pay for! It's a shame, a little TLC and the place could be nice.

Stopped this evening looking for a nice, well kept, clean 50's/60's type motel. This place is well worth the stop. Gracious greeting and very nice clean room for a very reasonable price. Yes, it is an older facility, but it is very well maintained. Definitely worth the stay.

The owner seemed quite a nice chatty lady, but she has too much on her plate. The room seemed fine but when opening the fridge door to put in our food I was very cross. It had not seen bicarbonate and water for a long time inside and out. We found the shelves to the fridge in a drawer and... More

We stopped at the Western Motel in Ranchester, Wyoming (pop. about 380) without reservations. It is on the road to Yellowstone Nat'l Park and is busy. I'd suggest you get reservations as it fills up fast, we were last to get a room and it was only 6:00 PM. Cute place run by a really nice gal named Linda who... More

This is a basic motel. I stayed here in early April, so it was still very early spring and cold. The rooms are kind of small, but the room was clean and the bed was comfortable. It was very quiet, probably because it was the off season and hardly anyone was there. It would be a good place to stay... More

We stayed here on a long road across the west of the USA. The motel was old and had seen better days but the attractive tariff reflected this. The owners were welcoming and recommended a good eatery - the Legends Bar - for our evening meal. Though a little cramped, the room served its purpose after a long day travelling... More

This place has seen better days. The room had stained carpet, the furniture was worn, and the mattress was lumpy. The small breakfast room had badly stained carpet, a mix of furniture, the tables needed cleaning, and the room had an odor. There appears to be a disconnect between those who work in the office and whoever handles online reservations.... More

We booked two rooms here in order to save another 20 miles of driving after a very long day on the road. We found the place to be adequate for an overnight stop and the owner recommended a very nice restaurant for our evening meal. The breakfast room was small but we did have it to ourselves and what was... More
