Good choice in Laramie, if you're tired of Holiday Inn and Hilton. There are some nice chain hotels near UW, and some cheap chain hotels a few miles out. If you want a locally-owned unique, friendly motel in the downtown area, this is your best bet.
I'm told (while I was taking pictures) that people sometimes stop by just to take pictures of the place. It's that unique. It's old, but clean. Lots of homemade western art inside and out. Very friendly staff, especially Jim.
There is a downside, but not too bad. Lots of loud trucks and bikes on 3rd Street throughout the day and evening, although not so much later in the evening. Breakfast is sparse. Coffee, juice, danish. I could tell there was no battery in the smoke detector because there also was no cover. A table lamp that burned out two lightbulbs. Fortunately it didn't start a fire (see smoke detector above). Overall I'm glad I stayed here for a night.
The wifi was okay. No problem getting ice from the one machine on property. Guest laundry has one washer and dryer. Good shower / water pressure / hot water.
