Generally comfortable room; eat breakfast across street at Wrangler Cafe rather than free hotel breakfast
My husband and I stayed here for two nights during during the Green River Rendezvous (Mountain Men) festival in July. We had a room on the first floor next to the indoor pool, on the back side of the building.
The room was free of road noise. We heard noise from the pool, but that ended when the pool closed at 10pm.
We had two queen-sized beds. I slept in one, my husband in the other. There was a nightstand with one lamp between the beds. I slept close to the nightstand. I thought that side of the bed was a little worn out. The framing and firmness of the mattress was too apparent. The other side of the mattress was more comfortable. My husband had no complaints about his mattress.
The plumbing fixtures and bathroom tile were up-to-date. However, the toilet was really low, like one designed for use by children in a grade school.
The room many nice features; new carpeting, an upholstered armchair, a padded desk chair and desk, dresser, clockradio, flatscreen TV, refrigerator, microwave, two floor lamps, coffee maker, luggage rack, closet with hangers, ironing board, etc.
We could not locate a way to leave the room fan on constantly. It would run, and then turn off. We decided to leave the window open with the fan intermittently running.
We stayed two nights at the hotel, but partook of the free breakfast only once. One harried employee was assigned to clean and stock the breakfast room during that busy festival Saturday. The breakfast buffet ran out of eggs. The young employee partially heated a pan of what was probably liquid egg mixture. The result was a pan of what seemed like solid opaque yellow jello. It was chilly cold in the middle. We decided it was not safe to eat. The eggs would have come out much better if they had been periodically stirred while cooking. We did not try the bacon, biscuits and gravy, toast or cold cereal. Instead we ate the small yogurt cups, canned fruit cups, and some apple strudel that was dry but edible. My husband cooked a couple waffles which came out fine.
This hotel is located across the street from the Wrangler Cafe. On our second morning we went there and had a great breakfast. If you can afford an extra ten dollars per meal, skip the hotel breakfast and eat at the Wrangler Cafe.
We noticed a couple motels in town that were mom-and-pop operations or of a brand unknown to us. The smaller ones were closer to the hustle, bustle, and noise of the center of this small town. If we stay in Pinedale again, we will probably stay at this Best Western again, but will eat breakfast across the street at the Wrangler Cafe. less
