Hitching Post Inn

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Non smoking room was clearly smoked in it smelled of smoke. Toilet was not clean had urine all over toilet seat I cleaned it and cleaned it over and over again with Clorox wipes. Shower had used soap in there from who knows when. I wouldn't stay there again nor recommend for anyone I know. Not even for the price. The staff was nice but the cleanliness of the room was horrible.

Well, the good first - it did not have bed bugs. The bad: 1. It is under construction, with a large portion completely vacant, the portion on the road. The sign was mostly burned out, and It took quite a while to find it. The GPS wanted me to drive into a driveway that is all torn up. 2. The first thing I noticed entering the room was the missing light bulbs and the socket hanging from its wires on the sides of the vanity mirror. 3. The sink was dripping... not just a little bit, but a lot (which contributed to being awake most of the night from the annoying noise.) 4. The toilet leaks and refills about every 45 seconds (which contributed to being awake most of the night from the annoying noise.) 5. The bathroom floor was dingy to the point I felt uncomfortable walking on it. 6. The room next door had a smoke detector with a low battery which was chirping all night (which contributed to being awake most of the night from the annoying noise.) 7. There was an alarm clock, not plugged in on the night stand. I was feeling around behind the bed for a socket (which was too far away to plug the clock in anyway) and grabbed onto some bare wires. Why, you might ask, was it possible to grab bare wires in the socket? Well, because there was no cover plate on it. 8. Not that I really cared to watch TV, but they have really, REALLY old ones. 9. The room smelled pretty badly of air freshener... sickeningly so. 10. There were condom wrappers under the bed. I am out of room.

When we arrived at the motel after dark we wondered if it even was in even there. The sign that showed the hotel name was not lit and there was nothing but a big open parking lot near the sign. After driving thru this open space we finally found a sign saying "lobby". The lobby was dull and smelly. Off to the side was the breakfast area which had one table and a loaf of bread on the counter. The hall to the room was not appealing. When we opened the door to the room it looked very spacious but the initial impression gave way after seeing the dirt spots on the carpet, the tub area was filthy, shower curtain had mold, the couch had a large tear with stuffing coming out and cushions with not padding. There was only one bath towel and washcloth. Trains were heard all night long. Breakfast was a huge disappointment. There was a choice of two cereals, butter and jelly, and the loaf of bread that had been sitting on the counter when we arrived the night before. The milk for the cereal was in a gallon jug just sitting on the table not refrigerated or in a bowl of ice. The table space was not a problem because nobody was there to eat.

Had I not been so tired after a long day of driving, and if it were earlier and the room not already paid for (online), I would have gone elsewhere. Room smelled of stale cigarette smoke. Lamp on one side of the bed had a broken switch so couldn’t be used. No shade on another of the lamps. Torn upholstery on one of the chairs. That said, the bathroom appeared to have been redone recently and was clean, although some of the towels, while clean, had yellow stains. Grounds around were terrible. Cigarette butts. Broken glass in parking lot. Staff was nice enough but unprofessional...the desk clerk was out front barefoot and talking with other staff when I arrived. If you have a choice, go somewhere else.

Rude, unprofessional staff. DISGUSTING room. Blood in one bed fingernail clippings in the other. Redeeming? When I left without staying they refunded my money.

I checked in durng the night hours and it was kinda scary.

The front desk staff were super friendly. However for the price we paid for the hotel room I was highly disappointed. Fully aware that businesses raise their rates during the summer I still hoped for a cleaner room for the price we paid. There was black mold throughout the bathroom, something red all over the walls (bathroom & bedroom), and dust everywhere. I'm not usually one to complain but this place was a dive.

Okay, not really, but I am not sure that it was built to be a hotel. It was difficult to find, and a little disconcerting to pull up to the address given and see a whole row of seemingly abandoned hotel-type buildings. Indeed, the Hitching Post Inn is surrounded by empty buildings. I'm not sure if there was a recent change in management/mass escape, but it was a little eerie to be surrounded by empty rooms (as if Cheyenne isn't desolate enough). The parking lot to get from the street to the main office was more like an abandoned lot, filled with all sorts of cattle equipment. Inside, the carpet reminded me of a scratch and dent sale at an off-strip casino. The hallways were dimly lit and the numbering of the rooms made NO sense at all. I was pretty sure that I was going to wander the wrong way into an experiment. The rooms that were full around us were very noisy. The non-cattle-filled part of the parking lot was filled with people partying into the late hours. Continental breakfast consisted of toast, a few old Danishes, and juice. I was mystified when we left the next morning and saw billboards advertising a restaurant, bar, and coffee shop within the Hitchin' Post. I don't know what they are talking about! It was the cheapest thing available last-minute in Cheyenne and for that I am grateful. Otherwise I would consider hitching myself to another post.

Add did not tell us that the main part of hotel was burnt down so when we pulled in we didn't even know it was still in operation! The chain link barrier fence around the building made it look deserted! Then we finally find the lobby and they don't have us down for a room, but the front desk clerk was so kind to give us a room at the rate we had on the reservation slip and then had to pay for the room again! I was not happy! I did complain and got my charges reversed on my credit card. The lights in the hall leading to our room were burnt out so had to find it in the dark! It smelled like a nursing home! With what we saw already we didn't even go down for breakfast was afraid of what we may find! Overall if I could give it a zero rating I would!

really in bad shape. my nonsmoking room smelled of smoke. the place looked deserted when we showed up. I did not feel safe. must be near the airport and train tracks- I heard train whistles and airplanes all night long

I thought for the money that this hotel was very diappointing. The rooms were not very nice but were large. Carpet was old and so was the furniture. The outside appearance was so bad I wondered what I was staying in. I will not stay here again.

While the room was clean, and the staff friendly, the hotel needs a lot of work. The bed was old, the building has not been kept up.

It was definetely a little rough. They wouldnt let us check in a hour early _ but they knocked on our door 3 different times before our 11:00 am check out to see if we were gone. When we walked down the stairs from our room it was covered in towels from the maids just throwing them on the stairs as they cleaned the rooms. Stains on the carpet = I know they charge a lot during Cheyenne Fronteir Days - but their competition charges the same amount and I will plan ahead next year and not go back there!
