I stayed at the Outlaw Inn October 16-20 as part of a rather unusual meeting/convention of hunters...we hunt with eagles, hawks and falcons. Dozens of us, along with our birds and a few dogs, invaded this wonderful hotel for over a week. We had a buffet dinner for over 75 people one evening, as well as an auction set up with a cash bar. We also used their meeting room for guest speakers during one morning and several evenings. The entire hotel staff, from the owners down to the housekeeping staff, worked incredibly hard to support all of us and provide us with everything we needed for an enjoyable week.
The food in the restaurant was very good as well. The breakfast is included, but it's not a typical breakfast bar where everything is in heaters, or mini-fridges and you serve yourself; these breakfasts were cooked to order based on an order form that you provided your server each morning. Our crew would descend onto the restaurant en masse, around 30-40 of us at a time, and the servers worked and ran their behinds off, always in a cheerful fashion, to get us our breakfasts quickly so we could get out into the field and hunting.
I read another review which stated that there was no microwave in the room which was NOT the case when I was there. I had a fridge, microwave, and coffeemaker, and a great flat screen TV. It is clear that this is an older building, with an interesting 1960s octagonal design, but they've renovated it nicely, added era-appropriate and current upgrades, and I found it to be a perfect blend of nostalgic Western and modern decor. They even have a small herb garden in elevated planters for restaurant use on the south-facing side of the building!
The owners are second generation, with deep Wyoming roots. If you find yourself in this part of the world, treat yourself to a stay here, and don't just stay at another cookie-cutter chain establishment. I can't wait to go back again! less
