I stumbled onto the Gas Lite because everything was booked in Laramie. Now it is my regular lodging. The rooms are not special, but they are clean. The place is entertaining with statues of cowboys, barrels planted with flowers outside of each room and benches to just sit and relax. Just think of Route 66 in 1963 and you'll have...

Don't bother. She charged me 60.00 more than the price of the room because of a foot ball weekend. Said she was booked and clearly she is not. She clearly cannot be trusted to run motel. Avoid at any chance. I wouldn't even give her 1 star for the stunt of price gouging but trip advisor won't let me give...

It's clean. They try to spruce up the place with hanging flower pots and local art on the walls. A bit dated/worn, but comfortable. I can recommend for budget-minded travelers, I think you'll like it. Free wifi and cable, but no ameinties beyond that. Just simple lodging for a decent night's sleep. (That is, if people next door don't start...

Yes the place is very oddball/quirky with layer upon layer of western kitsch; but it has this funky, off-beat appeal and the owner and staff are nice as they can possibly be. Personally, I like to stay in little mom-and-pop motels with personality as long as they are clean, safe and have basic amenities like cable tv and wifi that...

This hotel is better than your average chain. Nothing to fancy, but it is very unique and great for the area. I would stop here again when I am in town. And the price is great, for a clean room. The staff was very nice as well.

I chose this motel because of the reviews and feeling very nostalgic for route 66 I made it a point to stop here and was not disappointed at all. This place is not for everyone but to those who know what I mean, this place was great! There is a saloon right across the street that is right out of...

A word of warning, we found bed bugs in our room. When we told management, they were shocked but unwilling to give us a discount or our money back. I definitely will not be going back to feed any more bed bugs.

Was travling through Wyoming and needed a place for the night. Saw this place and had to check it out. It was a girls road trip, and there were 3 of us. When we got there, we were shown a room with 3 comfortable beds, and 3 sinks! What a deal for women on the road. The place was clean...

At first the fear factor may set in. Animal statues everywhere. Wagon wheels by the door. But the price was right. And the rooms are clean. My room also had a microwave and refrigerator. I loved this place.

Pros: comfy bed, good pillows, quiet, good location, inexpensive, lots of personality. Cons: no sleep timer on TV remote, strange room layout, lots of personality. This is not the motel for everyone. I'll state that right away. "Quirky" is an understatement. There are elk and deer and bear sculptures everywhere, giant murals in each room, a mini version of the...
