I really wanted to like this place but there was a lot lacking. I booked it through a hotel booking website but I think it is now run as an Airbnb. My experience is based on a ground floor room on the front side of the building in the Buffalo Roam Queen Suite. Maybe another room would be better? Cons: 1) A local family was using the front porch as their personal hangout spot after the coffee shop closed. We had the door and windows open because there was no AC in the room. The dad and kids were playing corn hole and yelling. Their unleashed dog came through our door and we had to kick it out. 2) The coffee shop was on the other side of the wall from our room. Very early AM we were awaken by really loud pounding like someone banging a meat cleaver on the table. When my husband asked the coffee shop to be a little more quiet they gave him a disgusted look. The banging went on all morning. 3) There is NO staff on site for the hotel. If you have problems tough luck. 4) Their is a tv in the room with no channels. If you want to watch something you need your own subscription to a streaming service. 5) There was a step to get up into the bathroom. Typically not a problem except when you are going to the bathroom at night. An easy way to fall on your face. Pros: 1) The location was good 2) The price was ok

Hotel's Favorite
So few people in this area of the state of Wyoming, it is a great place to get away and do some hiking, bird watching, and relaxing. Owners are super careful with the virus going on, extra cleaning and sanitizing. For birders, many birds up in the Snowy Range, just 30-45 minutes away from the hotel. Glacier lakes trail had many flowers blooming including beautiful vivid red Indian Paint Brush. Saw Moose, Elk, Deer, and Marmots. The best waffles we have ever had are made by Mike. Coffee is superb. They roast their own! Not an easy thing to do in dry Wyoming! All rooms have a microwave, coffee maker and a small fridge with a larger than most freezer compartment. Just a few places to eat in town for dinner, but Laramie is only 30 minutes away.

We stayed in the Indian Paintbrush Suite. It was the most comfortable place we booked in three weeks of travel. The host has thought of every detail! Very spacious, well furnished rooms. Perfectly cleaned. This is the best location for visiting the Snowy Range, as it is close enough to drive in for an early morning hike to beat the crowds. Centennial does not offer much, but this hotel and cafe are worth a visit.

I like this place. It’s an older building, but updated. Charming room—no a/c but at 8000 ft a fan works fine. Clean, nice bed, nice bathroom. Beautiful setting. Attached cafe has coffee and pastries. Someone cares about this place, and it shows. No 2 inch gaps under the bathroom door, and the stopper in the sink works! (First tell that someone cares!). A little cheaper and a nicer room than the place across the street.

Stopped in while day touring in the Snowy Range to eat lunch. Ownership has changed since our last visit last year, but we were very pleased with the menu offerings and especially the friendly service. We learned that the chef is really a classically-trained chef, justifiably proud of his craft. So do not expect a hamburger and fries. Rather expect a culinary treat, and take time to enjoy it.
