The Historic Plains Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I think this hotel and its patina are charming. Some of the furnishings are newer than others, but I was comfortable, and it felt refreshing to stay in a hotel that didn't look like a thousand others. The public spaces are adorned with antique bric-a-brac, and I loved the wooden and tiled floors. It really depends on what you like... If you prefer someplace to look and smell brand-new, then this hotel is probably not right for you. But if you see wrinkles as laugh lines... then this is your place.

It's very convenient to go anywhere. The breakfast is pretty good with hot food. The price is exceptional.

The front desk staff were very nice and the breakfast was really good. There is no parking, except on the street wherever you can find so I had to park on the next street over and up. I had a weird vibe when I was walking down my hall to my room, didn't know what it was but I was done a long hall and around the corner at the very end, felt lonely and strange to me. Then later that night friends told me the place was known for being haunted and I think that explained my odd feeling while walking down to my room. That made me nervous all night so I slept with the light on all night. One of the late night desk staff said he had heard things from other employees. The room was decent, bed pretty comfortable but yes an older hotel, I got a great price at this time and I just needed it to sleep for a night on my way home. Except I didn't sleep well with my imagination going. Anyway decent hotel for what I needed, probably won't stay again due to the haunted thing lol.

Really neat, one of a kind place. Great places to eat within walking distance. Hotel lobby is particularly a grand place to hang-out, with lots of historic stuff to check-out, with both a bar and restaurant areas. Recently new owner and staff seem dedicated to investing in and maintaining this historic landmark hotel.

We found ourselves in Cheyenne after I80 was closed due to a May snowstorm. The seating areas on the first floor lobby and second floor were a great place to read a book and warm and cosy. The room was clean though dated, and the bed comfortable. Though it didn't bother us to walk up to our third floor room, be aware the elevator doesn't work. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Be aware that the parking garage is two blocks from the hotel.

Great staff and historic charm. The bathroom is a little dated, but it added to the overall vibe. It was the quietest hotel room I've ever stayed in.

When I heard that there were several ghosts, I jumped at the chance to stay there. However, I did not notice any strange occurrences! The staff was very nice, although the parking situation was a little worrisome, the hotel was a neat place to stay if you are a history buff and enjoy beautiful old places!

The staff was great, both the lady who checked us in and the morning staff. Provided a continental breakfast and the coffee was fresh and hot with homemade banana bread. The location is convenient if your heading that way. The historic architecture of the hotel doesnt get anymore classic, literally it's on the historic monument list. My only knocks on it would be the tv was about 20 years old and it's a bit pricey but I would stay again.

The lobby is beautiful, but the room we had was small and the bathroom was outdated. The location was great, but there is only on-street parking or a parking ramp two blocks away. The staff was very nice. The list price of $115 per night is way too high for this room. The Internet price of $81 is also too high. We were there on a Sunday night and the place was almost empty. Based on other hotels that we have stayed in, this would be reasonable at about $50 per night. They need to remodel the rooms to match the lobby before they start charging their current prices.

Great location. Helpful staff. Water lukewarm. Expecting king bed. Got queen bed.

Hotel was good. Our room was large and on the corner so we had views of all the activities. Downside is very loud traffic noise and no guaranteed parking within 2 blocks of the hotel. Elevator is small and VERY slow we took the stairs and were staying on the 4th floor. Staff was very friendly and helpful

The hotel is downtown and reasonably priced. However, it is old and in need of many upgrades. The phone in my room didn't work and neither did the clock. Overall, it was a place to stay that was clean and that is what I wanted.

Charming older hotel across from the historic district. Great location for walking to many sites.

Great place right downtown and close to everything

The Historical Plains hotel is listed as being a haunted hotel. It's the fun part about being a historical property with so much history. I could have a lifetime of conversations if these walls could talk. With or without the ghost we hope your stay was grand enough that we will be able to have you as a guest again.

historic hotel in a tiny town
