I have had issues staying in wyoming in general and Rawlins in particular. My first stay at the Oak Tree Inn was the best of the 4 times I have stayed there. It is a decent motel which is fairly new, clean and well maintained. In my opinion it is over priced but that seems to be the norm in Rawlins. A full breakfast is included with the stay at the adjacent diner and is a lot better than the so called "hot" breakfast served at many motels. The free breakfast helps to lessen the blow of the price. It is a 3 story motel and I requested a room on the first floor for convenience of loading and releaving my dog. I was placed in room 126 and it worked so well that I requested the same room on my return trip and was told I could have it. They write all reservation info down on a 8 1/2 x 11 piece of paper which you can easily see when you check in. On my return trip they placed me in a 2nd floor room. I could see on the paper that someone had written rm 126 and crossed it out and than wrote another first floor room number and crossed it out and than wrote rm 205 which is what I got. I asked the man checking me in how this could happen and he said "I don't know". Undaunted, I stayed there 2 months later and again asked for room 126 when I made the reservation 3 weeks in advance. I was told I could have rm 126 on the way out and rm 124 on the way back. When I arrived I was placed in rm 206. I could see where someone had crossed out 126 and wrote 206 in. On the way back, I was told that I did not have a reservation at all. I was asked a lot of questions about what day I called. who I spoke with and what time of day that I called. Finally, the man checking me in, found my reservation filed in the 3 ring binder for the next day although the correct day was on it. He than gave me a room on the 3rd floor. I could see that someone had written rm 124 and crossed it out.
The man checking me in had the audacity to tell me his name and that he would be on duty till 10 if I had any special requests. I simply replied that it apparantly does no good since they gave my room away 3 consecutive times.
The moral to this story is: If you are looking for a decent, overpriced and badly managed motel, this one is for you. As for me, I will stay there no more.
