Recent guest reviews

Staff was unfriendly, no game room, no pool, had to get second room because first one had a broken door. Very cold in building, not clean.

Located on the west side of town, just off I-80. It is not within walking distance of either the campus or the downtown business district. It is next door to a Wendy's. It did have a continental breakfast, free. Didn't use the indoor pool, but it looked nice. It was reasonably clean but some of the fixtures were worn. Microwave, min-fridge, hairdryer and iron in room. Amenities consisted of soap and shampoo. Never heard any other guests. The mattresses were not plush. The light from the parking lot was so bright that, even with the curtains drawn, one could still read with all of the inside lights turned off. When I called to let them know we would be late and not to give away our room, I found out that we had been booked into a smoking room by mistake. The desk clerk did switch us to a non-smoking room which, as it turns out, contained 3 queen beds, one being in a little room around the corner from the main room. So, if you were a family traveling with six people, that room layout could work nicely and give those sleeping in the alcove a bit of privacy. I did not see any elevators used the interior steps up and down to 2nd floor. The vending machine supply was pretty stark. The fire doors at the bottom and top of stairs were propped open. When we returned to the room after dinner on a Saturday night when the school semester was in, the sign on the door said No Vacancies. If you are planning a stop in Laramie, book ahead, as a minimal supply of rooms goes quickly. Stayed in better stayed in worse. Reasonable for the price.

The hotel has really improved in a lot of ways since the last time we stayed there. The room we stayed in had been updated and was very clean and comfortable. I stay in a lot of motels and unfortunately the free breakfast was probably the worst one I have ever experienced. Not very good selection, cheap, watered down orange juice to the point it was more water than juice, just not a good experience. Overall for the price though we would stay here again, just make other plans for breakfast.

Great value for the money. Would definitely recommend for somebody who just want to spend the night in the quiet and comfortable room.

reservation was for a King bed we received 2 queens which was really not a big problem. Beds were comfy. Breakfast was disappointing, choices were very limited. We were traveling on the motorcycle so packed lightly and planned on using the hairdryer and of course it did not work. Frig and microwave were handy in the room and did work fine. We did not use the internet but that was not a choice on review so had to pick one. P.M. staff was very polite, A.M staff was sort of rude and just kept saying since we booked with a third party we would not have a receipt or anything, we just wanted to check out. We just left the key and departed. Overall it is an average place to stay.

Front desk took some time to get service, but room was comfortable and reasonable.

-took 3 attempts to get into the room with the slide key, even after having it rescanned. The clerk even had a hard time, and said oh you have to slide it real slow and turn the handle real slow. For the 145.00 for 1 night one would thing you could get in with no trouble. Also luke warm water in the evening and morning. I would not recommend this hotel at all :(

First off we've stayed at Econo lodges before & they've all been good plesent experience.But the one in Laramie Wy is horrible the staff was rude when I asked for a reciept they couldn't provide me one then the hot water in the shower didn't work.Just drive on by this place.

The room had two doors, one exited to the parking lot and the other to an interior hallway. We were informed that we cold use the exterior door as a way to leave, but not enter the room. Upon returning for our evening out, we discovered that the lock on the exterior door was broken, leaving the room unlocked. The refreshing looking pool was ice cold. The hotel also charged me for the room.

Felt very unsafe. Front desk was very rude. Would neaver stay at this hotel again. Felt safer in my car. Defiently will never recommend this hotel to anyone.

Rooms were nice and staff was great. Walls are a little thin, but everything was great

The air conditioner nor the bathroom fan worked. We were not comfortable with opening the window, because we were on the ground level and there was no screen in the window. To use an iron, I had to get an iron from the front desk. The ironing board was in the guest laundry, which had no outlet for the iron. I had to haul the iron and ironing board out to the hallway to do my ironing. The breakfast bar was pathetic. The good side- a place to lay our heads and a hot shower and a reasonably clean room.

i had stayed at this location previously. this time around everything had changed for the worst. there was a broken chair that had been repaired poorly. no one had cleaned the carpet. no soap,dirty towies,sheets were old and torn. tha breakfast sucked. when i checked out the man could not speak english when i voiced my concerns. i will never go back to this pig sty. very very negative

The hotel was nice, not great. our room's air conditioning kept going off so we couldn't keep the room cool. Breakfast wasn't much to brag about. But the price was right!!

Came to town for son's Wyotech graduation.The only thing I found negative about the stay was the coffee machine had used coffee in it and we didn't get any refills. Other than that, the stay was excellent and the personnel were so inviting.

Staff was friendly Room was clean They have an awesome waffle maker! Pool was nice I don't know what people were complaining about in other reviews.

It was a step above the bare bones motels, but over-priced for what was provided.

Staff was friendly. This was the high point. Low points - intense paint smell (they were remodeling some rooms), "exercise" room is furnished with cheap stuff, including a jumprope. Worst thing is the metal slam when someone else closes their door - woke me up about once an hour after 11pm. Probably won't stay here again.

This was an ok hotel for the price convenient location. Remote did not work with tv and when I woke up and turned the lights on the power in the room went out. Staff very helpful and fixed problem.

It was ok. The room was way to hot because the air conditioner did not work properly.
