“All amenities available but not impressed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2012

This hotel was rated with two and a half stars on Priceline and, compared with other similarly rated properties, I was not impressed. It is not that they don't have all the amenities you would expect it is just not a particularly pleasant place to stay.

Part of that comes from the fact that the area around the hotel is very industrial with large truck stops next door and the interstate behind. There are several family style restaurants nearby, such as Dennys, but the area is not pleasant. I was given a room that faced the road and had a motel-style outside door facing a truck stop and next to the hotel's liquor store.

The room itself was pretty small and, if you wanted any privacy you needed to close the curtains so it was quite dark. These two elements combined to make it feel somewhat claustrophobic. The fittings, bed, desk, AC, towels etc. were all good and worked as expected. I was concerned that I would be woken up early by the noise of trucks as other reviewers have mentioned but that was not a problem - maybe because it was a Saturday.

Other reviewers praised the breakfast but I did not get to try it. The restaurant seemed to be under construction and, when I went to the dining area there was a line of 13 people waiting to get in. This may show how great the food is but I was not able to wait.

I was assigned the hotel in a "name your own price" deal at Priceline and, if I was visiting Rock Springs again, I would be happy to repeat the experience at the same low price but I would hope that you could get a better room elsewhere if paying full price.

Found ourselves here on our way to Jackson Hole, WY. The restaurant was really good and the staff for food and hotel were all great. It is an OLD hotel so if you have crawling children be prepared to lay sheets on floors but that being said for a very old hotel it seemed like it was reasonably well kept up. I would prefer to not stay there again, just bc I like newer hotels when traveling with children, but dont have anything super negative to say. It is what it is: old hotel that has not been updated but is well kept, with very nice staff and cheap prices.

Stopped over for one night. The service and accommodations were both great. Has a neat "cowboy theme" throughout. The indoor pool was nice, but no hot tub. (They have plenty of room , would it really be that hard to install a hot tub???) The free breakfast in the morning in the restaurant was great. Lots of choices and made to order.

This was not our first choice of hotels to stay in the area, BUT, to our surprise it turned out to be an excellent property. Not only were the rooms clean, up to date, comfortable and quiet, but again to our surprise, breakfast was a home cooked meal in their restaurant made to order. Happy hour was another surprise with snacks as well as all bar drinks which were all complimentary. This motel is definitely underrated. Would stay again if in the area.

Very nice lobby but the room not so good. Tiny, cramped and very dated, in fact pretty banged up. Definitly needs a facelift! Breakfast is served in their nice restaurant and is good. Have specific items cooked to order. The worst room and the most expensive of our trip. I'd check elsewhere.

I stay here often since work brings me to Rock Springs. This place has a restaurant, a saloon/liquor store, a pool, and plenty of truck parking since it's across from a truck stop. Even being close to I-80 and a truck stop, it's very comfortable, clean, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. They have a free breakfast which is great because it's not continental, which a lot of other hotels seem to offer these days. There are plenty of choices for food within a minute or two walk.

Room Tip: Get an inside room if you want to be by the pool or need quiet in the morning. Oilfield workers like...

Very nice, clean hotel. If you are not planning to be up at the crack of dawn request an inside room - the outside parking lot rooms are handy for being able to park right in front of your room so it is easy to carry luggage in and out but there are a lot of oilfield people who stay at this hotel and they start their day early and they drive big diesel trucks so there is a bit of a rumble in the parking lot between 4 and 6 am. If you travel with kids, the indoor pool was nice and clean and warm - looked like a great area. A room that opened up onto the inside courtyard would be awesome for a family visit. Staff was very nice and helpful. Restaurant has good food - big portions and helpful wait staff. All in all an A+ visit.

Room Tip: Inside rooms are quieter - outside rooms have parking lot noise but are easy to park right in front...
