We have been quite fortunate when we travel choosing vintage 2-stepper motels. This property was a disappointment. It was a chilly evening & the heater didn't work! Cheap is not always worth it! Next time, I hope the Wind River is completed! Live & learn! The Paint Brush didn't have a vacancy for the night we were in town!

I stopped at the Tomahawk on my way from Grand Teton to Rapid City. The Tomahawk is a very simple hotel. The furnishings are not modern and it's clearly a dated hotel. Everything works though and the rooms are kept very clean. The breakfast is pretty mediocre, so don't count on much there. The hotel is located on the main... More

first off, I'm laid back on hotels as long as they are clean....The person overcharged me when I checked in (I booked online). The so-called AC didn't work.....it was basically so poorly working that it was simply a very LOUD fan throughout the night. We had to wear ear plugs to sleep. Then the coffee machine is something that heats... More

This place was extremely clean, beds were comfortable, bathroom was nice and clean. Very affordable, in room coffee, fridge and microwave. We felt safe there. We would definitely stay here again. They have a mcdonalds that is close by, and a couple gas stations.

Considering that other, nicer motels were ridiculously priced and all we required was a place to rest our heads and a fridge for our groceries, this was a decent choice. Definitely in need of some updates but it is in the process as the current owner has only been there 6 months. The owner was very friendly and accommodating. The... More

If you need a cheap bed for the night when you are passing through Riverton, this is a good option. Although the façade is a little rough, the owners are nice and welcoming. Although pretty bare, the rooms are clean and seems like they have been refurbished recently. The shower is hot and the bed is comfy, what more could... More

Stayed here on our cross country trip from Virginia to Wyoming. Very clean, comfortable bed, the a/c worked well and overall, a good value. This is a very basic room - no hair dryer or in-room coffee, but you can't beat the price. Good, fast wifi was an unexpected bonus.

I recently stayed here for work related reasons. Jay and his wife had just bought the place and are friendly and hard workers, they also are in the process of doing updates. If any issue arose Jay was very quick to see it resolved. My room was always clean and they even cleaned the carpets while I was staying there.... More

This motel has no frills, but it is clean, quiet, safe and it was a perfectly nice place to spend the night. The owner is pleasant and accommodating. It is centrally located and you can walk to bars if you want to go out. I would stay there again if I ever find myself back in Riverton.
