“A Good Place to Stay in Rock Springs”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

As the name suggests, the Outlaw Inn has a cowboy motif. It's a little cheesy, but my room was clean and convenient, and the bed was good. It is a little threadbare and worn, however, so I'm thinking some refurbishment is in order.

There was a fair amount of drive-by and walk-by noise, but I was on the street side, so that may not be a problem elsewhere.

The service was efficient and pleasant, and a bar and restaurant are on the premises. The breakfast that comes with the room is a made-to-order, restaurant-made meal with substantial portions.

Most people stay in Rock Springs briefly when they are going from one place to another; the Outlaw Inn is fine for one night.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that doesn't front on the road.

I had a little bit of sticker shock at paying over $100/night for a hotel room but the room was warm and cozy and very well kept even though the hotel is a little bit older than some. Breakfast was better than a continental type and there was plenty of good coffee in the room and available in the check in area. Very western themed and was a fun place to stop for the night.

Room Tip: We chose a room on the front side of hotel, the back side might be a little bit quieter.

When we drove up to this hotel during our cross-country trip, my first thought was, get back in the car and drive some more - it looked old, shabby and a little scary. So I checked Tripadvisor, and reviews were positive, so we stayed. Very good decision.

The place is older, but our room was very clean, kind of charming and had a lot more of the free stuff like amenities, cups, etc than any other hotel we'd stayed at on our way. Service was good, wifi worked. Very quiet. I slept like a baby.

Would definitely stay again.

We stayed at the Outlaw Inn for 1 night in september 2012.
Our room was nice and clean, but a bit noisy as it faced the road. There was also a bit of noise coming from the other rooms.
The hotel felt a bit dated, with the indoors swimming pool situated in the middle of an open atrium, next to the bar.
Breakfast was excellent.

Rock Springs is a mining town, and doesn't cast itself as anything else! It's a pit stop in the middle of no where..! However, this Inn is ok..it's an older "dome" in, meaning everything is built nearly free standing under a cavernous pitched roof..an interesting design. It's clean, very quiet, has everything you might need, pool, bar, restaurant...all right on the premises.
The "Saloon" is, well...old, and has that smell reminiscent of years of smoking. As it turns out smoking in the bar is now banned but you can still tell. The decor there is VERY Sammy Davis and Dean Martin. Prices are reasonable.
The Restaurant: UGH. Nicely appointed, but not so great food. The prices are horrendous. I ordered a burger just to keep costs low and was shocked at it's appearance. Glad I didn't order the steak! The breakfast is complimentary, and it was alright..and they open at 5, which is unusual on this trip, usually its 6..
The Room: old, but in great repair, and comfortable beds. And really, what else do you need?

Room Tip: The downstairs rooms are below grade so VERY quiet! However ours had no window ..so if you are claus...

The motel takes dogs, which we appreciate, and it had a nice grassy place for her to walk and do her business; however, the dog fee at $20 we felt was high. Plus, since the hotel is older, the room was quite small although the bathroom was fairly large and had been updated. Unfortunately the bed was not comfortable, and had we not had a "feather bed" with us which we spread across the bed under us, we would have had a totally sleepless night. Bed comfort is just so important!

The "free" breakfast is in their restaurant, and upon checking in we were given a sheet of breakfast items and told to mark one beverage and three entree type choices (cereals, scrambled eggs, bacon, etc). Our choice of scrambled eggs were dry and tasteless, bacon that we requested be "crisp" was good and was crisp, but the cinnamon roll was doughy in the center and inedible. Coffee my husband described as rather like "soapy water," and the water for my hot tea wasn't hot enough to really brew properly. No fresh fruit was on the sheet, only "fruit cocktail." We ate what we could and were happy to leave the restaurant.

Next time we are in the area, we will look for a hotel with larger rooms and a more modern feel.

Room Tip: Look before you buy!

Based on all the Trip Advisor reviews of this place, I thought I'd head over for lunch. Ordered the "spicy buffalo chicken" sandwich (I think it was called). It came breaded and fried (no mention of this on the menu), which I detest. After removing the breading/outer shell/whatever it was, the bit of chicken left was about the size of one of the tomato slices. At least the fries were okay...
