The owner has taken possession in recent years and is making great strides in making this a really great little place. The outside seems a little sketchy, but once inside you can see the efforts being made. The lobby and hallways are great, with lots of great framed cowboy and indian art, the keureg machine in the lobby more than... More

We stayed here for one night in January.We showed up really late because we drove through a blizzard. The lady who checked us in was friendly and prompt. When we got into our room I pulled the sheet back and found a hair.So I went to the desk and rang the bell and she got us new sheets. When I... More

An older motel with dated furniture and worn fixtures but the best customer service ever. Dallon stored our bikes, helped with bags, let us cook out back, and generally made us feel most welcome. The beds were very comfy and clean, a deal breaker for me. We enjoyed the city 4th of July fireworks from the front parking lot. Really... More

Thank you for your kind review and acknowledgment of Dallon. Dallon is our full time maintenance man who also fills in at the front desk. When hiring people for the front desk job I look for a few qualities. Are the friendly, are they courtesy, are they professional, and do they have an excellent work ethic. Of course Dallon meets...

We were looking for a place to stay, for under $100, while traveling through on July 4th (probably not the easiest thing to do last minute, on a holiday!!). The room was very clean, staff was extremely friendly, and it was a comfortable place to rest our heads! The only thing I can think of is that the bathroom could... More

This motel should not even be on anyone's desination! The lady at the desk was nice and the room was clean but very old and the tub had rust. There was no exhaust fan in the bathroom and the carpet had a faint smell. This place is where a lot of oil workers stay. It is in the worst place... More

I'm glad you found the Key motel to be clean and the staff friendly. Thats half way to a five star review. When we renovated the motel in 2013 it did not include replacement of the bathtubs or adding bath fans. I will look into tub refinishing. We do have 24 hour video servalance and I'm proud to say we... More

We are a family of four from Florida and Rawlins was just our stopping off point for one night. We like to do local hotels if we can and we weren't disappointed. It was clean and comfortable. The kids (ages 14 and 11) had their own beds and Wifi...what more could they want. :) It had everything we needed, refrigerator... More

I was driving from Nebraska to California and needed an affordable but comfortable place to stay in Rawlins. Although the motel looked old and unimpressive in the photos, the reviews for Key Motel were so good that I decided to stay here. I am really glad that I did! It is definitely an older motel located near I-80. It was... More

We called ahead for late arrival, and requested a room that could accommodate pets. When we arrived, we were a bit taken aback. The place looked older, but given the reviews we decided to go for it. What we discovered was pretty scary.. For a place that had been through a "total renovation", it was a dump. The manager told... More

I’m sorry the Key motel did not meet your expectations. We work hard to make sure every guest is happy and try to exceed their expectations. I personally inspected your room and although it did not seem bad, not bad is not good enough. I try to have the rooms smell pleasant when entering without being over bearing with air... More

I chose the Key Motel and rang to make a reservation. Dallon, the manager, was friendly, very competent and helpful as my wife has trouble with stairs. He booked us in and on arrival helped with the luggage and offered tips on where to eat which ended up being very good. The room was very comfortable with everything that was... More

We were looking for a place to stay that was NOT part of a chain, this was it. They actually use keys! The bed was very comfy, the place was immaculately clean; there was gym equipment available, coffee and microwaves in the lobby and elsewhere in the motel. We enjoyed it. The staff also recommended Cappys where we got a... More
