Horrible if you have a pet.

The smell was horrible and the furniture looked like it had been urinated on from past pets. It reminded us of sleeping in a kennel for animals. The original room we had was nice until we informed them we had a pet. Night and day difference. It might have been fine without the dog, who knows?

If you need a basic room for the night

This room had the basics. It was compact. OK for spouse and myself. Would have been crowded with children. Parking lot was noisy with trucks running at all hours and the train was pretty close, as well. But, it is right off I-80, near to a Mexican restaurant and the Chuckwagon breakfast restaurant, more diner-like than gourmet. Good for quick stopover and getting right back on the highway, but not a place to vacation. On the south fringes of town.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

Everything in Laramie is just a short drive. Drive up to downtown and walk around the old shops and eateries.

noisy motel

This hotel was the worst the train horns go off every 20 min and to close to expressway!! I felt like every time I fell asleep I would get woken by some noise. I reserved a king and check in at 430 and was told they didn't have any king rooms left..

You get what you pay for.

It was just a quick one night on the road stop. The beds were clean and comfortable. The room itself was not exceptionally clean. Picked up sunflower seed shells by the bed on the carpet. Had to plug in a Cpap machine for sleeping and when we moved the nightstand ............behind it was very dirty. Pop had been spilled on the nightstand and it was very sticky. Had to do a little cleaning before I could sleep here. as stated you get what you pay for.

fine hotel near highway 80

I was driving along highway 80 and needed a place to stay. This Motel 8 was fine. Checkin was not very friendly, but the room was very clean and had a little coffee maker. The clerk the next morning was friendly, and on the whole it was a fine stay.

Don't judge a book by its cover.

This place doesn't look like much on the outside but the rooms are actually quite nice. There was room to park my truck and there's a cafe down the block and across the street called CK's was great.
