I will do anything to avoid having to stay in Rock Springs, Wyoming. But, my job requires it ocasionally. Yesterday, my reasons for wishing to avoid Rock Springs and the Holiday Inn there were reconfirmed 1,000%!
Rock Springs is an oil and coal town. It bustles with big , muddy, oil-rig guys in gigantic, muddy pick-up trucks. The Rock Springs Holiday Inn is their hotel of choice. This Holiday Inn is sold out nearly every night of the year. If a guest decides to stay over past his reserved night for a few days, your reservation is bumped and sumarily cancelled by the front desk. The Rock Springs Holiday Inn is famous in town by all other motels as being their full-time booking agent because the Holiday Inn "walks" upwards of 15 to 30 guests to other motels every single night! It's true!Reservations mean utterly nothing to this Holiday Inn. Amazing!!!
The hotel staff are an angry bunch. Try meeting the front desk manager, Stacey. You will appreciate people who are cordial and helpful. They co-mingle their surliness with curt obligatory greetings. Any questions to the front desk are clearly unwelcomed and discouraged.
How can this hotel get away with all this? Simple: It's Rock Springs Wyoming. Where else are you going to stay? And, they know it.
Bottom line: Never stay in Rock Springs Wyoming, and never stay at the Rock Springs Holiday Inn. Until new genuine competition slaps Holiday Inn up side the head with a reality check, your visit there will be a nightmare.
