“Wonderfully clean and large after a long driving day”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

The Paintbrush Motel was a wonderful stopover for us on the way to the Tetons. We had had a long day of travel through Wyoming and a tire blowout along the way. When we arrived, Rod & Paul not only check us in, but helped us locate a reputable tire store as well as a nice place to eat with great service and smiles for weary travelers. When we opened the door to our room, we noted it was the cleanest and roomiest we, as a family of five, had ever stayed in!!! We highly recommend the Paintbrush to anyone needing a night's stay (or more) in Riverton!!

Room Tip: As a family of five (with three teenagers over 5'8) we were going to stay in the 3 double bed ro...

Thank you for leaving the Paintbrush Motel such a delightful review. Some times we find vacations do have the challenges of finding enough room at a motel to accommodate a large family. The room you stayed in was our family room with three queen beds. It does come in handy for everyone to get a good nights sleep. We hope the rest of your trip was wonderful and remember flat tires are just a part of a remarkable family vacation.

My husband and I stayed here on our way from Ft. Collins to Yellowstone. We decided to take this route on our way in pretty much because I found the Paintbrush Motel and it was more reasonably priced and better reviewed than places in Rock Springs (where we stayed on our way back). That decision really payed off! It's a long and empty drive to Riverton but the Paintbrush Motel was like a little oasis. When we had booked a few months ago, they only had two queen beds but when we got there they were able to change it to a single King because of a cancellation which was really nice! The bed was comfortable and the room was very clean. The gentlemen at the front desk were so helpful and nice and talked with us a little bit about Yellowstone and gave us some great information and magazines. All in all, I would highly recommend staying at the Paintbrush Motel!

We arrived later than hoped, but the welcome was warm. The room was clean and spacious with a comfortable bed. We enjoyed the family-owned atmosphere, and especially the friendly dog who greeted me next morning in the lobby when I went for ice!

My wife & I stayed at the Paintbrush in mid June for 3 nights at the start of our 4 week road trip. We flew in and out of Denver from London and stayed at 13 different hotels/motels on our trip and all of the stops on our fabulous journey were very enjoyable, but this was one of the best. All the glowing reviews are spot on.
Rod & Paul were helpful when I had to get my chipped windscreen (windshield) repaired and when I asked for 2 glasses to drink our beer from they didn't have any, next morning his wife went out a bought us 2 red beakers and we thought of the Paintbrush each time we used them on our journey and we brought them back to England with us.

This is a trip back in time when everyone stayed in family-owned motels while traveling. The owners of this motel make you feel at home the moment you arrive. They are so accommodating and friendly.

The beds in the rooms are extremely comfortable. We had a great night's sleep after staying in another part of WY. My only complaint was the lighting - it could use another lamp. I could not find a hair dryer in the room but found out they are available at the office.

We used the coupon to eat breakfast just down the road and it was terrific.

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights while visiting family in the area. This place is the best! All the folks are very friendly. The exterior of the motel and the grounds are very well-maintained. Room was SPOTLESS from top to bottom - and spacious too, with plenty of room for suitcases and other belongings. Bed was one of the most comfortable we've found in a motel (even the high-end chains). Showerhead provided plenty of water pressure, and the water was nice and soft. Air conditioner worked very well (July is hot in this part of Wyoming). The room also had a fridge, microwave, and coffeemaker. We could have easily stayed for a month and felt comfortable doing it.

All this for a very reasonable price - it actually cost less than the budget chains. When you add it all up, the age of the furnishings just doesn't matter. Actually, that's why there was plenty of room to spread out in. Motel chains could learn a lot from these folks!

Thank you, Paintbrush Motel - we'll definitely be back!

We are glad you both had such a wonderful stay with us here at the Paintbrush Motel while visiting family. Knowing you had a comfortable stay and telling us the National chains could learn a little bit from us is quite and honor. We know we can't offer all the specialty add on's the chains have but a little bit like home at a great price isn't bad either. Thank you again for your kind words.

Happened by this little motel between Mt. Rushmore and The Grand Tetons. It looks like a step back in time. Don't be fooled by it's small retro appearance...it is immaculately clean, free Wi-Fi, and expanded cable. Guys at the desk were very helpful with restaurant suggestions and even provided us with some travel books. If we find ourselves passing through this little town again in the future - we would definitely stay here. If you are looking for a five star hotel - this isn't it. But if you are looking for an affordable, clean option, ran by good people...STOP HERE! Thanks for having us - and your restaurant suggestion of the Trailhead was two thumbs up with our 13 year old!
