“Great "stop for the night" spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2011

My husband and I found this place on line as we were approaching Rawlins in a Budget moving truck. We just needed to stop for the night, and this place did the job. It was clean, had AC, and good parking. Just what we needed for a good night's sleep before we hit the road again!

This was the best deal in town. They are bicyclist friendly. Clean room. Good breakfast in the morning. Super friendly and nice staff. Grocery store and restaurants nearby. I recommend this hotel to travelers visiting Rawlins, WY.

We stayed in this hotel for 11 days and thought it was great. The staff is very friendly and supportive. We will stay here again next year.

No one goes to Rawlins because they want to. (at least I don't think so) We just wanted a quick place to stop for the night while on the road. Last year, we stayed at the Oak Tree Inn on a similar trip, and it was basic but new and clean. 1st choice was just, well...yuck. I didn't really feel comfortable sleeping there. I didn't want to look too closely at things. It was old, and there are much newer motels in the area. My advice: stay elsewhere.

Cleanliness, Appearance, and Comfort were Excellent. Continental breakfast had some nice items and was fresh. We saw this hotel while driving and tried it. We would stay again.

We woke op with bites and found lots of bedbugs in our bed. The corner of the bedframe was brown and several bugs was crawling around. We were disgusted! And afraid that our little daughter had been bitten too. This has really been a holliday crasher!! We can not recomend this place to anyone. Sad that management dont take the problem seriuosly!

We find your claim of bed bugs very troubling. We double checked our property log book and the only issue we found was that a guest woke up itchy, there was no evidence of bites and we inspected the room and found no evidence of bugs. In addition we have an exterminator inspect the property every 6 months. We take a very aggressive approach to dealing with bed bugs as the hotel industry (especially back east) struggles with these. All of my staff has been trained on how to spot them as well as signs of their existence. Any report we receive of bugs in a room leads to a room being taken out of service until it can be inspected by both the manager and head housekeeper or our exterminator. Upon reading your review I asked my manager to check all rooms again and she found no evidence. With that said, the fact that you had an unpleasant stay does not sit well with me. I will be personally visiting this property later this month and will be double checking all areas. Again, please accept my apologies for your stay and I hope you will give us another opportunity in the future.

After reading several of the remarks I booked 3 hotel rooms for our trip. We were all extremely disappointed by our rooms. Old furniture, not the cleanest floors leading upstairs and bathrooms need attention. I based booking these rooms after reading all the good remarks but don't know the last time these people stayed there! Breakfast was laid out on the desk counter and table at the side but NO place to sit but to take back up to your room. Girl at desk was friendly and very busy during check in which was not a problem for us. Just think although the price was good it could use some major remodeling. Just did not leave one with a "good feeling".
