I don't think I've ever stayed at a TripAdvisor #1 hotel before, so my expectations were very high.
Great: I booked using a travel website that indicated I could cancel before the trip, but that the full amount was owed once I checked in. I had to cut my trip a day short, and the manager graciously agreed to refund my last night. Fantastic! He said in the future to just call the hotel to make my reservation and I wouldn't have to deal with the travel website - he said they'd either match or beat what I found online.
In addition to the manager giving me a refund, the rest of the desk staff were very friendly and helpful.
Good: Quiet room. Comfy bed. Extra sockets (not like many hotel rooms where you have to unplug the lights or the clock radio for your phone/tablet/laptop). Quiet fridge. Microwave (didn't use it, but it was there). Dresser had plenty of space. Soft, fuzzy towels. Lots of choices at breakfast (my favorite was biscuits & gravy day - they alternate the hot entree daily). Hot tub / swimming pool area had plenty of ventilation, so you weren't bathing in 75% chlorine solution. They had several WiFi routers on each floor, so connectivity was not an issue (I don't think I've ever seen multiple routers before).
Location: Take the East Laramie exit - they don't pay to be listed on the highway signs. They're not really walking distance from anything, but I would guess most every guest will have a car - and few of the hotels in this area are walking distance to much of anything. There's an Albertsons grocery store about a mile away, as well as multiple chain restaurants.
I'll be back in August when the Snowy Mountains are the melted-Snowy Mountains . . . and I'll definitely be staying here.
