Thank you so much for such a clean and beautiful motel to stay at. The staff was very friendly and loved the pool will definitely stay there again!!! :). Highly recommend for a quiet, family friendly environment. Loved the cabins and all the flowers were so beautiful. Also loved the coffee shop in the office was better than Starbucks.

We just returned home from a 9 day vacation in Wyoming. This was by far the worst. The owners were very nice however the cabin was awful. Carpet dirty, lock on door broke, bedspreads dirty, pet hair on blanket, pillows about flat, bathroom dirty. Pool dirty and in need of repair.

This just breaks my heart! We work so hard to make this place the prettiest and cleanest in town. Really wish you would have talked to me about this while here. I would have been more than happy to remedy your dislikes! We have a lovely heated outdoor pool. If the wind blows we may get leaves in which we will net out. As of January 2012 we are on the National Register of Historic places which we are extremely proud of! Please check out our website "bluegables.com" with a great slideshow that shows the well groomed grounds and flowers all around the Motel. Hope to see you in Wonderful Wyoming! God Bless, Karen

We stayed here one night during our recent 2 week vacation. The hosts were great. Delicious smoothies after a swim in the warm 8 ft pool. (3 foot for the kids too). Best stay of our trip!!!

We passed through Buffalo,Wyoming without any plans of staying, car trouble prompted us to stay, this was a horrible thing.... very stressful to experience but.... the wonderful people of Buffalo turned this into a very memorable, positive, and enjoyable experience. The hospitality throughout the town was amazing the only thing more amazing was the Blue Gables Motel .It wasn't a francise approach, it was a family experience. The staff/owners were incredible. We were welcomed in and the service was top notch, everyone should experience this personalized service, the big hotel chains cannot match this ....everyone should check this place out, economical and an incredible value. It has all the ammenities like a pool, air conditioned cabins, wireless internet along with the unexpected extras like use of a barbeque, outdoor kitchen/eating area...firepit/sitting area, also laundry is available ...overall a wonderful place to stay. Oh yeah the best coffee I have encountered on this vacation. This is a MUST stay!

Room Tip: A single unit cabin (all by itself) would enhance your experience by giving you a bit more privacy c...

It's hard to give the Blue Gables a wholehearted recommendation. The mattress is old and lumpy, the bathroom is the tiniest I've seen outside an Amtrack sleeping car, and there's lots of traffic noise during the day. Then again, for about $70 you get a cabin of your own with a refrigerator, TV, AC, and lots of character. There's a small pool and nice grounds where you can use a gas grill if you want to cook for yourself. It's within walking distance of Buffalo's historic downtown and quiet enough at night for a good sleep. If you can overlook the few faults, it's a great way to avoid the chain motels along the interstate.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the individual cabins in the back of the property.

Karen and Jim run one of the nicer, quaint motels around(The U.S.). The grounds are manicured, and the cabins are cozy. This is my second business stay here (Oct 2011), and will come back and stay hopefully on a little R&R trip. Jim and Karen are so friendly (I know it's part of the job) and graciously help with everything you need. Walking distance to downtown, very convenient to all local services. Barbecue and recreation area are just right for a thrifty traveler, with outdoor grill, sinks, dining area. I can't imagine a bad stay.

Room Tip: Cabins mostly the same.
