Stopped this evening looking for a nice, well kept, clean 50's/60's type motel. This place is well worth the stop. Gracious greeting and very nice clean room for a very reasonable price. Yes, it is an older facility, but it is very well maintained. Definitely worth the stay.

The owner seemed quite a nice chatty lady, but she has too much on her plate. The room seemed fine but when opening the fridge door to put in our food I was very cross. It had not seen bicarbonate and water for a long time inside and out. We found the shelves to the fridge in a drawer and...

We stopped at the Western Motel in Ranchester, Wyoming (pop. about 380) without reservations. It is on the road to Yellowstone Nat'l Park and is busy. I'd suggest you get reservations as it fills up fast, we were last to get a room and it was only 6:00 PM. Cute place run by a really nice gal named Linda who...

This is a basic motel. I stayed here in early April, so it was still very early spring and cold. The rooms are kind of small, but the room was clean and the bed was comfortable. It was very quiet, probably because it was the off season and hardly anyone was there. It would be a good place to stay...

We stayed here on a long road across the west of the USA. The motel was old and had seen better days but the attractive tariff reflected this. The owners were welcoming and recommended a good eatery - the Legends Bar - for our evening meal. Though a little cramped, the room served its purpose after a long day travelling...

This place has seen better days. The room had stained carpet, the furniture was worn, and the mattress was lumpy. The small breakfast room had badly stained carpet, a mix of furniture, the tables needed cleaning, and the room had an odor. There appears to be a disconnect between those who work in the office and whoever handles online reservations....

We booked two rooms here in order to save another 20 miles of driving after a very long day on the road. We found the place to be adequate for an overnight stop and the owner recommended a very nice restaurant for our evening meal. The breakfast room was small but we did have it to ourselves and what was...

We stayed one night on June 28, 2012, on our way to Yellowstone, and other than location, which was good, and price (for booking 10 months in advance), we were not impressed. Bathroom was not clean, hair on floor and in tub, ( the owner did come and wipe it down), the room was very small with no table, breakfast...

I drove up from Denver to see a band in a nearby town for NYE. This was the closest hotel I could find to the bands venue so I booked it over the phone ahead of time. When we got to the hotel the lady came up to the front, opened the door and looked at me like I was...
