“great place with excellent restaurant”
Reviewed July 7, 2009

this is a historic hotel with many original features, whilst perhaps this might be viewed by some as not quite up to modern standards the accommodation is clean and comfortable - and indeed very reasonable priced and there is a great bar available as well as a restaurant whose excellent reputation attracts diners from vast distances - the location is ideal for onward journeys and there is an outdoor natural spring pool available near the town centre.

I know that this review is a tad late, but I will make it short and sweet...STAY HERE, it was well worth it and I would make a trip back that way just to stay there
My mom and I flew into Denver for a two week driving trip out west and this was our first night
We got there on a Friday night, so it was a bit crowded downstairs, but you never heard a thing upstairs in the rooms....
room was prestine.....staff was fantastic and the food downstairs in the resteraunt was great......
It was well worth the trip

  • Liked — Electic and old
  • Disliked — the steps going up to rooms were a tad narrow and steep, but that was part of the charm

We traveled from Washington to Missouri by car staying in historic hotels and bed and breakfasts all the way and this was one of the very best! The whole town of Saratoga feels like a movie western and staying in this hotel confirms it. It was at this point in the trip that our children became cowboys complete with cowboy hats and wooden rubberband guns from a shop down the street. We stayed in room 20 and the furniture was all huge. I tried to take a photo of how large everything was, but the camera did not capture the scale. The owners were great. The creeky stairs were great, but we arrived late and at 11pm we tried with children and luggage to quietly climb them without waking neighbors. I do not think we were sucessful in that task. The beds were comfortable and high off the ground. Everything was elegant and charming. It is not a standard hotel. It is a step back in time, even with the way the staff runs the hotel. I am concidering taking another trip to this area just to stay here again because we loved it that much.

  • Liked — The history, the furniture, the owner, the building, and the town.
  • Disliked — That there was a TV in the room (would feel more historic without)

Arrived Saturday around 4.30pm and were checked in by the barmaid at Reception which was in tthe pool room next to the bar.. Paid up front with credit card and never saw another member of staff again - even on departure on the Monday morning!

The sign on the hotel door said the hotel was closed for business Sunday and Monday but we had access to our bedroom (nothing else but the stair to the front door) and our room was cleaned.

Anyway, on checking in with the barmaid after a 320 mile drive from Jackson we asked if we needed to book a table for dinner on the night only to be told the restaurant was full but we might be served in the pool room (smoky) at 9pm - otherwise eat out! Saratoga is a very small town but we were fortunate to find the Saratoga Inn where we got a splendid meal. We had booked direct with the Wolf 7 months previous.

Our room on the top floor had a window with a fire exit sign pinned to the sash window which could not be opened by us. Fortunately alone in the hotel with no staff to call we did not have a fire!

For breakfast the cafe next to the Wolf is highly recommended.

We spent a wonderful 3 weeks in Wyoming and our experience at the Wolf Hotel was a one-off.

Hotel Wolf is a unique restored historic hotel. As an older property, it had some interesting things that you don't usually see, such as an exit sign mounted above the hall window that looked over the roof (well yes, that would work as an exit...). But moving past that, it felt like you had stepped back into time as you entered the hotel. You go through the swinging doors to the saloon to register, then go up the steep wooden stairs to your room. The rooms are very nice, with comfortable beds, and even a comfortable sofa bed (which you don't often find!). The hotel is set at the corner of the street in the downtown area and there are sidewalks and interesting shops that make you want to go for an early morning walk down to the river. I'm glad we stayed there!

Hotel is over 100 years old--all rooms have been updated with new bathrooms and TVs (no phones) and decorated in Victorian style with some antiques, ceiling fans, and attractive bed coverings. Bed was a little too soft for real comfort, but liked everything else including the fragrant soap provided. No other amenities so bring your own shampoo, etc. It did have a hair dryer. Lots of old west charm. Pretty quiet even though room was above a very busy dining room. Dining room not open for breakfast, but there is a wonderful cafe 2 doors down serving great breakfast with good coffee. Rooms are all on the second and third floors and being a vintage hotel there is no elevator.

After reading about the Wolf on Trip Adivsor we stopped in Saratoga after a harrowing trip over the snow covered pass aptly named the Snowy Mountain Pass (130). It's a beautiful drive crossing a pass at 11,000', but we got caught in an early season storm. The switchback mountain road was covered with snow and ice. Although we planned to drive to Rock Spring, the slow trip through the pass put us behind. Since it was 6:15 we decided to put down at Saratoga for the night.

The hotel is charming. It's over a hundred years old and has been restored to it's original old west charm. You expect a gun fight might break out in the long wooden bar. The restaurant features steaks on skillets. Our room was a 2 room suite (room 17). It was very comfortable. It had a little living room and a bed room. There was a tv mounted on a swivel bracket so you could watch in either room. The bed was very comfortable and the furniture was period authentic. Please remember that this is a hotel that was built in 1892 and has been restored to help you experince what it was like in the wild west. The town, which is only a few blocks is also a slice of old west Americana. Check out the hot spring, which is open 24 hours, at the edge of town.

Be warned that you can't get cell service and the internet service isn't working.

  • Liked — authenticity and value
  • Disliked — no phone or internet service
  • Tips/Secrets — checkout the hot spring and the donut ranch for breakfast
