We also had low expectations for this BW probably because of it's low price and also its location. We arrived at night and were so pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness, new rooms, comfortable beds and amenities. We were in the area to do a fish fossil dig at the Warfield Quarry outside of town (www.fossilsafari.com). This was an amazing activity for the whole family and we found quite a few really nice fossils that we were able to take home. It was our last night before flying out of SLC and we had plenty of space in the room to pack up all our stuff after a 2 week roadtrip. They also gave us a later check out so we could clean up after fossil hunting. Breakfast was typical for a BW but they also had scrambled eggs and potatoes to go with the breads and cereals. Great find!

Perhaps I should apologize for admitedly having lowered my expectations for a hotel in the small remote town of Kemmerer. It's not the middle of nowhere but with 3,000 people and not that many hotels to choose from, I wasn't expecting a lot.

What we got was a delightful surprise. My friend who conducts business in SW Wyoming recommended the place. He was right on the money. The place was very clean. Nice lobby. Great breakfast. Good location on and off the highway. They may have been faux but the countertops in the room appeared to be granite. Nice staff. Absolutely no complaints.

Stop over on trip to Fossil Butte National Monument led us to Kemmerer. BW as expected. Comfortable room, quiet. Desk staff pleasant and helpful. Did some laundry, but mainly a place to put our head down for the night. We expect this from BW, and this one was no different. Would recommend!

Let's face it, aside from neaby Fossil Butte Monument and the Oyster Ridge Music Festival there are few reasons to be in Kemmerer. But if you are, this is the only full service motel in town. And it is a good one. It offers top quality beds, midrowwave and refrigerator in the room, along with iron board and iron, a good breakfast (with that handy waffle machine), a small but pleasant swimming pool, spa and work out area, and a friendly staff. There are less expensive motels in town, a couple of them OK, but none with all these amenities.

Does anyone ever plan on staying in Kemmerer or does it just happen? I had to go for a mine audit and was not sure what to expect. My experience with Best Westerns can be a bit inconsistent. However, I was pleasantly surprised with my stay at the Best Western in Kemmerer. It is a very new hotel that was easy to find. The linens were clean, the beds were comfortable, and the staff was very friendly. I was grateful to have booked this hotel because the others in town were all quite dodgy. If I ever stay in Kemmerer again, this is the only hotel I'd consider booking. I wrote more about it on my blog: www.worldfamilytravellers.blogspot.com

Ok, I've stayed at some scary Best Western Hotels in my life, but my concerns were allayed when staying here. The staff was attentive and the hotel was spotlessly clean. The room was spacious. The location was great. Breakfast was tasty, hot and fresh. The pool was crystal clear, the deck clean as the towels were fresh. We couldn't have been happier.

This is a nice hotel with clean spacious rooms and complimentary breakfast. All that aside though, every other place in kemmerer is terrible! I took my daughter to fossil butte and this was a nice place for us to stay, the staff were friendly and helpful, with plenty of oversize parking.

Room Tip: Not much views anywhere around, but the top floors are quieter.
