Stopped at Hampton Inn while traveling to Colorado from Chicago. This is a neat place for the kids to stretch their legs and pick up a souvenir and learn a little history.

remember the roadside entertainment in the 60's? This one survives! Don't forget the back yard where there are some props to have your picture taken. Lots of stuff. There's a Wild Bill miniature circus that performs on the hour.
