“bet they dont get many return visitors”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

There are not alot of options if Lovell,WY is where your path ends for the night. Extend your travel time to another city, or stop a little earlier. Our room had not been thoroughly cleaned between guests. Toilet and tub were both dirty. We had to ask for towels and toilet paper.
Outlet cover missing, 1 of 4 outlets didnt work. no smoke detector, remote or clock. The advertised internet did not work until another person in our party threatened to leave.
Water so hot I scalded my hand (1st & 2nd degree burn) This was reported to staff with a casual " i'm sorry" response. Maybe they could turn that to a safe temp and use the savings to clean & furnish the rooms?
The off premesis owner happened to visit during our stay. He immediately replaced the smoke detector but made lame excuses for the other issues we reported.
The family who is managing the property is polite and trying to do a good job. Our failed a/c unit was quickly replaced. The bright spot of our stay was a brand new pillow that was delivered when we requested an extra.
Another reviewer mentioned breakfast- none when we were there. go the the Branding Iron

Room Tip: Check the room for cleanliness before renting.

We stayed at this motel because Lovell's Main St was under construction and didn't see a nicer motel down the street. We did look at the room before we decided to stay there and on the surface everything looked fine. Once we were in the room I found a empty soda bottle between the bed and the nightstand. There was no stand for a suitcase. The TV was old. One of my sheets and black marks on it, don't know if it just didn't come out in the wash or there was grease in the room somewhere. We only stayed one night and would never go back. The staff was just barely friendly. We paid close to $100 for this room. NOT worth it.

Room Tip: Sit on the bed and look for garbage and suit case stand.

I just stayed at the Econo Inn for a family reunion and the lady at the front desk was very nice. We checked in late and she was nothing but nice to us. She had let us know she was the new manager and she was just trying to get used to everything. You could tell she is trying her best to clean up the place and make it better! The rooms were clean, and that is the most important thing to me. The rooms are outdated a bit but for the price, you really cant complain. Hotels in lovell are all very basic, nothing fancy just something you can get a good nights sleep at. Its on the edge of town so its quiet, and easy to find! I think if the lady keeps up what she is doing it really could be great! Breakfast was great, and customer service was amazing.

While I have to admit the staff ( all one of him that lives there on site) was very friendly and the room was clean, that's the best I can say. the beds where not all that comfortable, the pillows may just as well not have even been there( glad we ALWAYS take our own!) and the worst part not even coffee! There is not a coffee pot in the room, and while there was a pot in the lobby in the two days we were there it was NEVER on! Since we have family in Lovell we will be back to Lovell but we will NOT stay here again!

There are very few options in Lovell and no close towns, this property is a dated and previous Super 8, very very basic. I was very concerned when I checked in, the room was basic but there were no pests, insects or bed bugs which I was very pleased about!
The owners were pleasant. AC worked, property is quiet. No breakfast but at $58 a night, what does one expect?

I have read all of the reviews here both good and bad and felt I wanted to contribute. We were travelling through the BigHorns and did not have a reservation for this particular night. We called the Inn, they had a room, the price was decent, so we reserved and drove right on in. Let me say that I do understand some of the reviews as far as: this is not a new or classy/upscale hotel, and some of the furniture & carpet is definitely showing wear. It is run by a husband/wife team and they do have small children. But we found the couple to be very nice and it did not bother us that their children were in the foyer/behind the counter. We found them adorable, but then we have a small grandchild and we love kids & accepted the fact that they live there-this is their home. Our room & bath was very clean & tidy, the towels and sheets were not the very highest quality but they were clean and acceptable. The bed was, again, not top of the line but comfy enough that we slept fine. (The only issue we had was the bottom sheet was not fitted & so it crumpled up quite a bit but we still slept fine). When we checked out we thanked the couple and told them we thought they were doing a good job. We have found that when travelling it is best to keep a positive attitude and try to keep perspective about the type of place you are renting, how much you are paying, and if you can accept "average" or not. I am not saying that anyone should have to accept dirty rooms, or old broken down mattresses, or mistreatment by owners or workers. That is unacceptable at any level. All I am saying is evaluate your expectations and decide if you can or cannot accept "average", then plan accordingly. I hope this helps.

The hotel is just out of the centre is close to the main highway, so easy to find. the room was reasonable with two large beds, though the furniture was a little old and dated. Coffee making facilities were available, and I think iron and ironing board were at reception.

Breakfast was simple, juice, toast and iced pastries.
