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.
