I'm a motorcyclist, an avid motorcyclist. But when you pull into a town like Rock Springs at 9:30 at night without reservations and the town is hopping with field laborers occupying nearly every room your perspective of a hotel changes.
Hotels.com hooked me up with the only room available in their directory. I had been to three hotels along Bluff street and they were turning away other weary travelers.
$84.00 - Quality Inn. Headed to exit 104 and voila, right across the street from the exit ramp. (Convenient).
The front desk clerk already had my name on his register (and I had booked the room less than 10 minutes prior with Hotels.com.) Nice!
I got to the room, opened the door to a stale room aroma. Leaving the door open while I unpacked my things helped. The fridge and microwave were new. The bathroom had been renovated with new fixtures (shower and toilet). Not bad!
I pulled back the bedding to look for anything amiss - clean sheets, pillows, though the bedspread was worn. The mattress was firm and comfortable.
So, if you want a decent room, no frills, don't mind being sent to the farthest corner room away from traffic (another nice touch - no traffic noise) then this is a viable option.
Lesson learned: book ahead if you are spending the night in Rock Springs, WY.
