This is a great little hotel to stay in. Great rate, service and quiet. Close to downtown and Wal-Mart, plus many fast food places. They are pet-friendly and the maid keeps the place in excellent shape. Front desk personnel is very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend this hotel for extended stays and overnights.

We just made it to Rawlins ahead of storms and road closure. This motel didn't look like an awesome place from the outside but I gave it a shot. This is a very nice place run by a very helpful, friendly man. The interior is very nice, room was big and beds were very comfy. I highly recommend it.

Thank you for the nice review. I know the exterior needs help. We often get people driving up to the motel only to turn around without ever coming inside to see how nice and inviting the interior is. I'm working on an exterior renovation plan that I hope to get started on later this Spring. The plan is to make... More

We found our way to this motel on a late Sunday evening. Having just experienced a night drive with amazingly high winds and black ice, we were more than ready for a good night's sleep. We picked this motel from the positive TripAdvisor reviews of "pet friendly" motels in Rawlins. It was definitely a good choice.The night manager was courteous... More

Don't judge a book by its cover! This is the warmest coziest place to stay. Carol was so welcoming and had my heat on and my tv on so that it was so welcoming when I went into my room on a very cold night. My room was so clean! The bed was incredibly comfortable. The rate was awesome! Mike... More

Location is terrible but don't let it scare you away. The price was great! Rawlins charges big city prices for their motels but we paid under 60.00. Clerk was warm and friendly. The whole motel has an impressive collection of western pictures and art on every wall. The room was small but the furnishings were nice including a huge comfy... More

The best reviews on travel advisor guided us here, thanks everyone. Best motel in town for the money,clean,clean and clean. Yes, it's older but who doesn't love cowboy and Indian motif. Nice shower, flat screen and good wifi...pizza Hut delivers. Breakfast at Penny's diner, 24 hr.

The owner and staff (Valena) were very nice. Gotta say that I loved the numerous cowboy and Indian paintings. Sure, it's old but there is some wonderful antique furniture in the rooms. We had a nice leather sofa and our king sized bed was good. Everything was clean. And,Mike, thanks for the Kuerig coffee!

Overall a good value for the location. Like many isolated locations, hotel prices for average accommodations are a premium in Rawylins. My room was a bit rustic – mismatched furniture and bedding, original vanity top, etc. But the room was very clean; and the towels were nice and fluffy. The staff was exceptionally flexible, helpful, and agreeable. The price is... More
