“A nice motel in a very nice western town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2014

We stayed one night at the Sunset Motor Inn in Cody, arriving on July 30. 2014. The location is just a short stroll from town centre. A charming town Cody is, in a real western style. All rooms are ground floors, in several buildings. There are two pools, one outdoor, and one indoor. Our room was basic, but OK enough. Front desk busy, but we were in no hurry. Fully booked, so it's a good idea to call for reservation at least one day ahead, as we did. Will recommend staying there.

Room Tip: Choose a room close to the pools

We picked this place based on the reviews and we were happy that they were spot on. Our room was spacious and quiet, since it was at the back of the hotel. The bed was comfortable, which after a day of riding motorcycles, was very welcome.
The big plus was the stainless steel, industrial sized hot-tub which got to muscles, I didn't know I had.
The staff was friendly. The only thing worth noting is that at breakfast, the crowds of ravenous guests, can overwhelm what limited seating there is, so get there early.

Thank you for the very nice review of our motel. We are happy that you were able to relax in our wonderful hot tub. After a long day on a motorcycle I am sure that a nice soak was exactly what you needed. It is also very nice to hear that you enjoyed your room. They are quite large and very quiet. We receive many comments regarding this daily. We hope that you were able to use our bike wash that we provide. The crowds at breakfast can become overwhelming at times. We are amazed ourselves at times. We hope that you will come back again next year!

I normally do not like Motels, but this one is fabulous, clean, wonderful staff, grounds were well maintained and buildings/rooms recently upgraded. This will be my go to hotel when I am in town. Don't forget to have dinner at the restaurant - the food is Wonderful!

I have stayed here 4 times. There are other newer hotels, including an additional Best Western across the street. This location has great value. The rooms are all on the ground level and open to the outside where you can park your car or motorcycle right out the door. This is great because I have been camping and fishing and I'm unloading equipment right into my room, no elevators or steps to deal with. It can be a little noisy in the morning if the place is full when the motorcycles crank up.

Cody hotels seems to fill up every summer night with travelers who are more than willing to pay their high prices. Sad to say, but at $140 a night this is a relatively good value. The Best Western Sunset is an older property that from the outside looks like your typical older motor inn. However, the lobby, common areas and rooms have been nicely updated. It is large and somewhat sprawling--120 rooms, which means it can be a hike to the lobby from some of them.

Very disappointing was the fact was that the hotel's wi-fi was not operating during the two days I was there. I depend on good wi-fi while I'm traveling and I tried going online in the middle of the night, then taking my laptop to the lobby. Nothing. I asked twice at the front desk and I received lame answers like, "We know it's a problem." or We're looking into improving it." One desk clerk suggested that I drive two miles down the road to a McDonalds. Not a good stay.

Room Tip: This is a sprawling complex so some rooms are a long walk to the lobby. If you're not up for tha...

Thank you for staying with us. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your room. We work very hard to keep our property clean and in great working condition. We are glad you noticed. It is unfortunate that you were not able to connect to our Wi-Fi while you were with us. We did recently upgrade our service to a different service provider. We hope that you will come back again and let us have a chance to amaze you.

Much nicer than I expected - nice upgrade (I'm a diamond member), clean and spacious room, nice breakfast, friendly staff, very impressive. Parking very convenient, cute "backyard" by the room! I will definitely stay at this BW location if I ever go back to Cody.

I stayed at this Best Western because I traveled with my puppy and needed a pet friendly hotel. However the cleanliness of the pet room was not great. The breakfast area is built to accommodate about 40-50 people but they have way too many rooms for that sized area. People were standing to eat and waiting in line for pretty picked over food. If you don't have to use this location use the other in Cody.

Thank you for your review. It is unfortunate that you did not feel the cleanliness of our pet friendly rooms were up to par. Our housekeeping staff work extremely hard to make sure each room is exceptionally clean. Our pet friendly rooms have been remodeled with beautiful wood looking tile and all our guests have commented on how great of an idea this is. We also completely strip each room after a guest has stayed in it with a pet. Our breakfast area can become quite crowded at times, but we have additional seating outside as well as more tables that we set up in our lobby. Our breakfast attendant and front desk staff work very hard and always keep everything well hot, fresh, and well stocked. Thank you again for staying with us.
