    « Great place to stay. »

    This hotel is a great place. The rooms are clean, nicely appointed, and quiet. The hotel is fairly new and they take great care of it. Has a great location with easy access to the highway and town. Highly recommend.

    « Great stay »

    We pulled in just when it began to snow. The lobby was charming ,fireplace sofas. The front desk was friendly and efficient. The rooms were very nice. Very nice furniture and a comfortable bed. Breakfast was well done. Good fitness room. Would definitely stay again.

    « confusion »

    Mostly good service. little confusion with house keeping in understanding when we were not checked out. our stuff was not out of room and house keeping called us at 9:30 asking if we were checked out when check out isn't till 11:00? a little respect of privacy till check out time would of been nice.

    « Excellence and luxury in a tiny town »

    I am now a Best Western fan. After this stay, we booked the next night in the next town at another Best Western and had a similar great experience. Better breakfasts than most (real eggs and sausage and more!). Granite shower. Big and plentiful pillows and grown up towels.

    « Fossil Butte National Monument visit. »

    Good place to stay while visiting Fossil Butte National Monument. Conveniently located to gas, shopping and the town of Kemmerer. Employees make you feel welcome and appreciated. Also have a good breakfast.

    « Hunting Deer »

    Great hotel, thought about booking a 50 buck room but was well worth the other 64 bucks, as the hotel breakfast was better than most hotels of this class, and the bed was so super soft and comfortable. Room was large and the tub was big, shower was hot. Nice work area. Only down fall I found was the fridge in the room made a loud humming noise, so I just unplugged it and it went away. Coffee in the room was great and quick. Highly recommend paying the extra few bucks for this hotel.

    « Great place to stay »

    We have stayed here before to fossil hunt. The hotel is very well maintained. Breakfast is excellent. Location is great...but there are not many choices for staying in this area. Prices are higher but the comfort is worth it

    « Where to stay if fossil digging »

    Great location off the interstate . Wonderful place , super clean and great staff. Fantastic breakfast . Easy to find and just a short drive to American Fossil. The fossil museum is really close. Pretty good Mexican Resturant short drive away .

    « comfortable and clean »

    I like staying at this hotel when I travel to Kemmerer. It is clean, quiet and the staff are friendly and cheerful. the beds are comfortable, the bathrooms are clean and the rooms don't have that smell that a lot of hotels have. It is nice to step out on the hillside in the evening and see the deer or feel the brisk wind. The heaters and air work perfectly.

    « Superb service, perfect location, delicious breakfast »

    Perfect location for fossil hunting. Had a great breakfast offering make your own breakfast taco and oatmeal, bacon, eggs, potatoes, fruit, granola, yogurt, toast, waffles, hard boiled eggs, and more. Very helpful staff as well.

    « Great place for hunters »

    Spacious rooms. Tile floor to handle the Wyoming mud. Welcoming staff. Good breakfast. Pet friendly. A real plus of a hotel for Kemmerer, Wyoming. Have stayed here every time since we found it years ago. Well kept. Will be back and book again.

    « No Buttes About It....The Place To Stay in Kemmerer »

    Great hotel.....wonderful location...within 10 minutes to Fossil Buttes National Monument and short drive to Fossil Fish collecting sites. Rooms are well appointed....internet access....great breakfast & a friendly staff. Easy access to major highways

    « Great Best Western »

    We stayed here on 9/5/17 and thought it was one of the best BW's we've stayed at. The hotel appear newly renovated, the room was clean, quiet and comfortable and the breakfast was better than most BW's. There are limited hotel options in Kemmerer and this is a good one. We would stay here again.

    « Dinosaur hotel »

    Perfectly situated and best place to start a family adventure! Kemmerer is a hidden gem when it comes to having an adventure you never thought likely to happen. After a day of looking for fossils, this hotel is a great place to come back to and get refreshed to start again, and with The complimentary breakfast, it's the perfect place to begin the day!

    « business stay »

    Great value for working out of town. The place is clean and quiet. Bed is actually comfortable. Staff are friendly and propt. The only issue we had was accessing the Internet. We had to enter the information in 4 or 5 times before it allowed access. Overall nice place to stay.

    « Good value in Remote Wyoming »

    This is a fairly new property and was very good for the price. The breakfast was what you would expect. The rooms were fine and service excellent. The major problem was Kemmerer is very remote and there is not much in the way of restaurants. We were there only for Fossil Butte NM.

    « Best hotel in Kemmerer by far »

    Everything was wonderful and we are extremely happy with the hotel and staff, however, the Wi-Fi/internet service was a disappointment as it would not stay connected making the use of our computer impractical for most of the stay (which we used to plot out our daily activities and use as an alternative to TV while on travel). Lesser hotels have had better connections on this Wyoming trip.

    « Best place to stay in Kemmerer WY »

    Nice, fairly new hotel. Friendly staff, clean and comfortable rooms. Good location to town and interstate as it is within sight once you pull off. Only problem I had was slow internet. All else was good.

    « We stayed here to visit Fossil Butte National Monument and dig for our own fossils. »

    Hands down the best experience we had in a three week excursion across country. The check in was seamless the room was spotless and very inviting. The ladies who attended to the hot breakfast were not only accommodating to special requests but pleasant. The pool was very well maintained as was the guest laundry. Overall I can't say enough good about our stay.

    « 4 stars -- great rooms + breakfast »

    The rooms were large and it truly felt like a Best Western Plus property. The free breakfast was hearty and the dining area was well kept and clean. The only drawback was poor Wi-Fi. And a minor nit with the guest laundry. One of the dryers wasn't working. It would accept your coins, but not actually turn on. When notifying the front desk, they seemed aware as they said it has happened before. I offered to put an out of order sign up so they printed one up. Not a lot of dining options (for lunch and dinner) as it seems located closer to Diamondville -- mostly fast food stops.

    « Hotel at Kemmerer »

    Nice clean place to stay. On our way to Yellowstone. Also the home of the first J.C. Penney Store and his home. Easy to get to from highway. The hot breakfast was very good. Scrambled eggs, dry cereal, rolls.

    « Great hotel in small town »

    Stayed there for several days with family this past week. Stay there a few times each year, and always have a great experience. Nice rooms, good breakfast, nice pool, nice meeting facilities, and great staff.

    « A Great Drop-in Trip to WY »

    This was a last-minute stay while passing through the area - hotel staff was incredibly friendly and helped me find a room at a time when nearly everything was booked, and provided great driving directions. The room was spacious and clean. Breakfast was basic, but well-prepared and presented. I would definitely stay here again!

    « Clean, nice, comfortable, new »

    This is a great Best Western, and a great base for exploring the fossil country nearby. Everything is spotlessly clean and well managed. I recommend it highly. The beds are very comfortable, the indoor pool is clean and inviting and the breakfast is also well done.

    « A very nice base for fossil hunting »

    We came here to go fossil hunting. We were a family of five, and the room was very spacious. The hotel met all our needs for the night we were staying there. It has a pool too, which the kids really appreciated after the drive there.

    « Fishing SW Wyoming »

    This area of Wyoming is quite remote, so the Best Western Plus in Kemmerer is quite a surprise. Everything in our experience at this motel was pleasant. We were there 5 nights and found the motel to be a good end of the day after being in rivers all day.

    « Exemplary Facility »

    Simply put, this is one of the best in Wyoming. From the antelope roaming the entrance to the property to the incredible views from my room, the location is spectacular. The property is spotless and the rooms crisp and clean. The shower is to die for. All in all, this is an incredible find at the end of a long travel day.

    « Best Hotel in Kemmerer Wyoming »

    Always enjoy staying at this hotel during our summer trip to Kemmerer to celebrate the Oyster Ridge Music Festival and spend time with family that also come to Kemmerer. Rooms are always clean and service is super.

    « Nice place to stay »

    The staff is friendly, the bed was comfortable, the hotel was clean and neat, top to bottom, the breakfast was decent---not much more I would want in a place to stay the night. Besides, the sunset from our window was spectacular!

    « Very Nice Motel »

    We found this to be a very nice motel. The room was clean and well maintained. We had a little problem with the smoke detector but it was taken care of immediately by a very helpful staff. I would recommend this to anyone who is questioning where to stay in Kemmerer, Wyoming.

    « BW Fossil Butte »

    Good service, very nice room and fine breakfast. I have many pleasant memories of Kemmerer and will stay there again at an undetermined date. The additional touch of having a puppy tray in the room was really nice.

    « Nicest Hotel in Kemmerer »

    We have been coming up to Kemmerer to hunt fossil fish in the local quarries for several years and this hotel is the best. Clean and quiet with a free breakfast in the morning. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. You can wake up in the mornings and usually see Pronghorn sheep grazing across the street! Excellent hotel all the way around!

    « Great Stay! »

    While traveling from Salt Lake City to the Tetons and beyond, we took a detour to Kemmerer at my 10-year old's request to visit Fossil Butte National Monument for the day, so we planned this stop in Kemmerer ahead of time. We are BW rewards members, and this location didn't disappoint. Conveniently located in Kemmerer/Diamondville area, which are the closest larger towns to Fossil Butte. Very friendly staff, large and clean rooms, great pool area for the kids at the end of the day, and breakfast was great for a hotel. The morning breakfast staff worked very hard to keep everything stocked and clean. The hotel itself looks brand new, but other reviews said its 8 years old, I wouldn't have known it. All in all, a great stay if you're in the area.

    « High Quality Best Western »

    This is a very well kept property. The hotel is 8 years old but you would not know it. Everything worked well and staff was very friendly and helpful. Good value for the money. Breakfast items were good.

    « Motorcycle vacation »

    This is a very new, nice, clean, comfortable hotel. We stayed on the 4th of July and watched an amazing fireworks display right from the hotel. Desk clerk was very accommodating. We would stay here again in the future! Not a lot of eating options in this small town, but found a great burger, fries, and ice cream shop right down the street from hotel.

    « Excellent hotel »

    We were pleasantly surprised to find this hotel in the middle of nowhere. It is clean, up to day, has a nice breakfast and a nice pool. This is the perfect location to visit Fossil Butte NM and to dig fish fossils. This is the best hotel in Kemmerer. Loved it.

    « Love this place »

    I have stayed here for 4 years running with my brother and grandsons while we fish fossil dig. The staff are always helpful and friendly and the place is really nice. I also love their breakfast! I highly recommend it!

    « Incredible hotel in the middle of nowhere »

    Absolutely friendly, local, small town hospitality. Very nice hotel for any city, but 10X better given the location in rural Wyoming. Will be looking forward to my next stay at a Best Western. I travel for work over 60% of the time and have always stayed in the Marriott chains, but I will now seek out Best Westerns and give more of them an opportunity due to this hotel. Thank you and I will see you again very soon.

    « Great Rooms & Comfortable »

    Next year when we head out west, we will definitely make this Best Western our first stop. The comfort and enjoyable made the start of a two weeks vacation most enjoyable. Great service...warm, friendly people.

    « Fossil country »

    We stayed two night in Kemmerer at the best western. Very nice hotel right off highway. Staff is very pleasant, nice breakfast and the pet room we had was great. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

    « Wedding »

    Going to daughters wedding The location was beautiful We'd like to live here Hotel was in excellent condition and the service was first class Breakfast was as good as it gets So we decided to join the loyalty club Also the cost of the room ( we had one equipped with shower for handicapped, an upgrade for free) was very fair. BW experience in God's country

    « Everything we needed »

    A very clean room and property, hot tub, indoor pool, exercise room, breakfast, wi-fi, comfortable beds, and amazingly soft towels. It is a little bit of a drive to Kemmerer for restaurants but very close to the highway.

    « Lovely property »

    This property appears to be new. Very clean, quiet and presentable. We were moving across the country and were very happy they had a room available as we didn't make a reservation. The staff were helpful. Easily accessible from the freeway. Nice indoor pool and fitness area. The breakfast was a bit slim in the way of choices but the presentation was nice and very clean area. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.

    « Wonderful experience »

    We stayed one night here with our 7 yr old granddaughter. Everyone was so helpful and nice. The pool area was very nice and enjoyed by our little girl. Breakfast was fantastic. What put this place over the top for me was the fact that we inadvertently left behind an important item and when I called to ask if it had been found I was told yest it had been found by the housekeeper and was at the front desk!! A quick turn around on our trip to pick it up was all it took! thanks to the great staff!

    « Outstanding Hotel and EXCEPTIONAL Customer Service »

    This hotel appeared new, clean and provided many amenities. The front desk staff went above and beyond both in the evening when we checked in and in the morning prior to our departure. The evening desk clerk was outgoing and a joy to speak with. She provided us with several options for dinner and her recommendation for amazing Mexican food was right on target. The desk clerk in the morning assisted us with directions and provided phone numbers to make direct contact with the 3 Best Western properties at the entrances of Yellowstone to assist us in securing a hotel for Memorial Day weekend when we were unable to find lodging. Both employees truly went above and beyond!

    « A excellent stay »

    We were extremely satisfied with our stay. warmly greeted at check-in and received both an upgrade and pack as Reward Diamond BW members. we had a simple "take-away" at the Artic Circle about half a mile away which we can recommend

    « Nice »

    Its a nice Hotel but they only provide FOX Cable NEWS They had CNN but removed it stating the People in town watch FOX, But travelers are from all over. So.. they do not provide alternative, So I left

    « Highly recommend! »

    The reception desk has awesome staff, very friendly. She also gave us a map and a description of the local restaurants, which was spot on. Our room was spotless and the beds were extremely comfy. Will definitely return!!

    « Clean and beautiful accommodations »

    Helpful staff, always greeted us with a smile and assistance whenever needed. The rooms and the entire property are very clean. You can tell these folks really take pride in what they do. Well worth every penny!!

    « Nice, clean and friendly »

    Newer hotel, nice clean and the breakfast was one of the best I have had at a hotel that included breakfast. Large variety and had items my husband who is gluten intolerant could enjoy. I was impressed with the cleanliness for a small town hotel.

    « Best place to stay »

    This is by far the best place to stay in Southwest WY. It is also at the gateway to Yellowstone, Jackson and the Tetons.. You can stay here for 1/3 the price of Jackson and get better quality and better service. The breakfast bar has a wide variety of food items and always well prepared.

    « Best stay in Kemmerer »

    This BW is on the outskirts of Kemmerer, right off Rt 30. It is a modern hotel with good parking and an elevator. It offers no step access to the lobby and rooms for people with mobility impairments. We saw but did not use the pool and exercise room. The desk staff was friendly and professional. The breakfast was substantial by motel standards, with scrambled eggs and bacon or sausage and hash browns, as well as waffles and cereals and muffins. We were here two nights and recommend this hotel as your best option for spending a night in Kemmerer.

    « Best hotel in small town of Kemmerer »

    Hotel looks recently built. Everything looks new. By far this is the best option in Kemmerer. Best surprise was that the bus to Salt Lake City is at a gas station very close to hotel. Staff is very nice and helpful.

    « Good place to stay »

    Happy with the room and the service. Clean. Comfortable. Centrally located. The breakfast was good... very well stocked and the room was clean and neat. Parking is easy and close to the doors. Have stayed here before and will next trip, too.

    « Clean and excellent service! »

    I stayed here for 3 weeks for work and all 3 times I checked into a different room and it was always spotless. But even more impressive was the hospitable staff. From houskeeping to front desk staff was excellent. They were always kind, friendly, helpful and went above and beyond a few times for me on a few things.

    « The BEST of the Best »

    This Best Western Inn, even though located in little remote Kemmerer, Wyoming is absolutely the "Best" of the Best Western Hotels in the 4 state Western region I travel. If you happen to need a great Inn to stay in a quiet, quaint locale, this is YOUR Inn.

    « AAA+ highway hotel!! »

    We passed through Kemmerer and stopped to avoid snow and weather. The Best Western is fantastic! Thank you. The best big box hotel we've stayed at during a several month long road trip out west. Every member of staff takes pride in the product and service, which makes all the difference. Clean and spacious, with small tokens that elevate it above the usual competition (Hampton Inn etc), - cookies and hot coffee in the evening, fresher and more generous than usual breakfast, decent sized rooms, good showers and plenty of fresh towels. Great hotel if in the area. Jailhouse Java in the town centre is worth a stop for coffee.

    « Newer motel »

    Great motel. New, dog friendly and decent breakfast. Very friendly staff. Room was clean and comfortable beds. Tiled floors with throw rugs is great with the dogs and they gave me some towels to wipe up the floor since there was a lot of snow.

    « Comfortable, pet friendly »

    This is a new motel in a small Wyoming town. Comfortable,clean and great staff. Great hot breakfast. Very convenient place to stay with a dog. The town itself is spread out and difficult to find a resturant on a Sunday other than fast-food.

    « Poor Lighting »

    Very satisfied with hotel in general other than the poor lighting in bathroom and room. Husband commented on poor lighting when shaving and I commented about poor lighting when applying makeup. We did not enjoy the DIM room yet had three lamps and a light overhead at the door. Perhaps we are the minority of wanting better lighting but that aspect of the room was very disappointing to us.

  • 5
    « Excellent Hotel »

    We had a great stay at this hotel. The staff was wonderful, breakfast was very good, fresh backed cookies every evening, bed was very comfortable and room was very clean. Even though hotel was on the highway it was very quiet.

    « But more expensive than others but well worth it »

    Needed an overnight so checked out all the hotels/motels in town this looked the best and it was although more expensive a than the others. Very nice clean quiet rooms with all the mod cons, tea/ coffee in room fridge and microwave. Breakfast was a very big surprise as tit was much better than we expected. Eggs, bacon, cereals etc. Would stay here again if passing this way.

    « Exceeded our expectations »

    Beautiful facility with spacious rooms, tastefully furnished. We loved the comfy beds with super soft linens, thick bath towels and a gorgeous view of the sunrise. The corridors and the room had a very nice, fresh smell at all times. The continental breakfast was far better than any of the previous hotels on our trip....fresh eggs, bacon, pastries, yogurt, cereal, juice...all in a sparkling clean dining area. This hotel delivers top notch comfort and amenities...wish we could have stayed there longer!

    « Antelope, Antelope, Antelope! »

    The folks at check-in were very nice. There was "orange water" and a coffee pot in the lobby. We had a nice-sized room, with a refrigerator and microwave. The sink was in the bathroom, but there was still plenty of room. The shower was very good, and the towels were great, fluffy and thick. There were 3 lights in the room, but they projected very little light. The room was dark, even with all 3 lights on. Breakfast was from 6-9, and it was wonderful. Just about everything you'd expect to see at a hotel breakfast, plus sausage, eggs, and potatoes. The best part of our stay occurred just outside the hotel. We returned to the hotel late in the afternoon from a visit to Fossil Butte Natl. Monument. Well, on the hill just opposite the hotel there must have been at least 20 pronghorn antelope, just grazing, clearly in view from the hotel's parking lot. What a great sight to see!

    « Better than the average Best Western Plus .... »

    Since we were hitting some Canadian and American National Parks in peak season, we ended up staying at the towns located outside the parks, and even then, some of the prices were bordering on the ridiculous ! So coming into Kemmerer and noting the difference in price and reviews between the motels and the Best Western, we chose the Best Western Fossil Inn (and Best Western was running a great promotion ? stay two times and get a $50 gift card ? so the price difference was not so big). The motels/lodges where we'd been staying were fine ? clean, some older, some updated, comfortable beds, etc. But there is always something nice about having consistency and that's what Best Western delivers. The Fossil Inn was nicely decorated in the lobby with several fine examples of local fossils. Fresh coffee is available all day, with fresh cookies in the evening. The room was large, with two queen beds, so it would be comfortable for a family travelling. Bed linens and towels were of good quality. As is common in Best Westerns ? microwave, minifridge, coffee machine. There was also enough room for a comfy chair and desk/chair. Breakfast was the standard eggs scrambled/hard boiled; sausage patties; pastries; waffles/French toast; fruits;yogurts; cereals/oatmeal and all of the condiments and beverages. It's located outside of the main area of Kemmerer, but it's only a few minutes drive away.

    « Very nice and clean. Overpriced »

    This hotel is very nice and very clean. Really have no complaints except for the price. This hotel is in the exact price range I pay when I stay at large cities, such as Salt Lake, Denver, Chicago, etc..

    « Shockingly good!! »

    I am NOT a fan of the Best Western chain, as they are extremely inconsistent and I have rarely been happy in my stays. This being said, I thought it well worth saying that this particular location clearly is a great hotel. It's rather in the middle of no where in Wyoming and many of the folks who come here are in the area to fossil hunt in the nearby establishments where you can chip away your own fossils at a reasonable rate. So, because of this, I only had a very small number of hotels to choose from and picked this Best Western. I was shocked. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, the room immaculate and a great value. Plus the free breakfast was a bit better than the ones I usually get (the eggs were good--not some powdered crap). The bottom line is that although they have little in the way of competition, this hotel tries very, very hard...and I appreciate that!

    « Best of Best Western »

    We stayed here three years ago and loved the location, décor, comfort, and friendly staff. We recommend this Best Western to our friends who are traveling in this area. So of course, we were happy to stay here again on our trip back from Yellowstone.

    « Surprisingly wonderful! »

    What a wonderful motel! Just driving thru, baby was tired and we needed to stop for the night. Right off the freeway, wonderful people, beautiful room, well kept, relaxing, quiet. Breakfast was not fancy, but very good. Great place to stay. Surprised us.

    « Very nice, new property. »

    This is a very nice, new (or almost new) property seemingly out in the middle of nowhere. Easy access from main roads, very pleasant and comfortable room, friendly staff, plenty of parking -- couldn't have been more pleased!

    « wedding »

    There for my sons wedding. Best hotel in the area. Though need a bigger breakfast area. Seemed like breakfast was crowed and no where to sit every morning. Nice hotel. We thought everything was really nice

    « Farm Fresh Eggs!! »

    Breakfast was really good. Fresh eggs made a huge difference. Rooms were big and clean. Hotel is pet friendly but I did not notice any smell. My wife booked the room for the wrong day. We showed up a day prior to our reservation and the young man at the counter was very helpful in getting us set up for the night. Ate dinner at a local restaurant called Bootlegger. A very good choice.

    « Exceptional for a Best Western »

    We went from a high end condo in downtown Park City to the Best Western in Kemmerer but we were comfortable and happy. Our stay was to fly fish the nearby Green River. We opted for the "suite" that was about $20 more per night. But it was worth it for the nice sitting area and good size cube refrigerator. Nice staff. Good room service. Very clean. Spotless, good draining shower. Very comfortable beds. An excellent motel. 5 stars for what really is closer to a 3 star hotel than 2.5 star level motel. It was nicer than most Courtyards or Holiday Inn Express. Excellent free breakfast each morning with a waffle machine and really good coffee. Free gourmet cookies each evening though the several dozen cookies would disappear within an hour. Kemmerer is a sleepy oil and gas town on the Wyoming plains. Hauntingly beautiful with a tiny downtown of a few diner style restaurants. There are also 2 old school bars that likely haven't changed much in 60 years. The fishing was terrible. Just terrible. So there's no need for Kemmerer to go yuppy like Livingston, MT. It's perfect as is. It's nice to see pronghorn in town.

    « Visit Fossil Butte--stay here »

    We had planned a visit to Fossil Butte but had been concerned about where to stay in the area. If that is your situation, let us help with your decision. We recommend the Best Western in Kemmerer. It was new, clean with an accommodating and friendly staff -- good breakfast too. We had been on the road for over a week with exciting but long days. We were a bit tired and liked the hotel so much that we decided to stay over. Good decision for us. A pleasant and relaxing stay sent us happily on our way.

    « Excellent breakfast, big clean rooms! »

    I could go on at length about this quiet, clean hotel, but the item that really stands out and sums it up for me is: actual scrambled eggs at breakfast, not poured from a carton, but real eggs. I even found a tiny bit of shell one morning, which initially surprised me, but it was not a problem for the excellent flavor. I'd return in a heartbeat.

    « Great stay for fossil digs! »

    We stayed in the Best Western in Kemmerer as a lead in for a fossil dig in the area. The hotel was comfortable, the staff were friendly, and the pool was thoroughly enjoyed by our kids. The fitness room was good and had bottle water available. There were plenty of places nearby to offer food choices. Laundry room was also an added bonus. In the evenings, the hotel staff had placed cookies in the lobby and the kids appreciated them.

    « Clean and Convenient »

    This hotel has friendly staff and clean rooms. It is nothing super fancy, but definitely nice, comfortable and convenient. The breakfast was great for a free hotel breakfast, with eggs, meat, waffles, etc.

    « Great Place to stay when Fossil hunting »

    Great staff, very friendly, and made sure your visit was a pleasant one. Very clean, up to date with everything. Wireless internet worked great, super comfy bed, clean bathrooms. Mini Fridge and microwave was great since I was traveling with my kids. Typical pool and hot tub, this needed some cleaning, and the chlorine would knock you out just by being in the pool facility. Typical free breakfast, nothing special there. I would recommend this hotel for anyone, you will be pleased.

    « Keep an eye on Best Western! Go ahead guys, you're doing great »

    Hey there, we were driving back across country and needed a place to stay. My wife hadn't ever stayed at a BW, I had all over the country and said, yeah but they are taking it up a notch from the 'old BW you know and hate'. She begrudgingly agreed. The place was in the middle of nowhere but near a big refinery/mill so the lot had loads of pickups. Outside were boot cleaners to scrub off the mud, in the room there were trays to sit your dirty boots as well. (100% hitting your target demographic here!) I had flip-flops so no real use but for their regulars, this is not only good business, but will keep their carpets/rooms cleaner! Room was immaculate and like BRAND-NEW! I looked and looked and really, it was all very solid. If I was to ding them on something it would be the black-out blinds. They had some wear so weren't 100% blackout but honestly, I was up and out just after sunrise so no biggie. The breakfast was abundant with loads of FRUIT! Yes, like real fruit! Then the usual, waffles, and such. The coffee was actually good for once at a hotel breakfast and they hooked us up with extra creamer/ice to fill our big cups for the next leg. The manager was actually outside sweeping up and wished me well as I departed. Yes, a manager wasn't just there, he was actually working, doing manual labor. Love it. I happened to pass the Laundry and a lady was in folding sheets smiling to herself and humming, I told her thanks for the perfectly washed/folded sheets, keep it up and she beamed and said, WHY THANK YOU! Glad you noticed and told me! I can't say enough about this whole place, well managed for sure and it shows in the excellent service/staff.

    « Very clean and comfy hotel! Great Breakfast! »

    Coming from Yellowstone National Park, we were pretty tired when we checked in. Check-in was a breeze, our room was great, large, clean and comfortable. The front desk found me an extra luggage rack and extra pillows. They traded in my decaf coffee packets for more caffeinated. The room was quiet, and very comfortable and on the first floor as I had requested. Our breakfast was great with both hot and cold items including scrambled eggs, sausage, biscuits, waffles, hot and cold cereals and sweet rolls. Very nice accommodations except the hi speed internet did fall off around 6pm probably when they were full and the pipe was overloaded but was on first thing in the morning. We just watched TV after 6pm and did report the problem. We would certainly recommend this hotel and look forward to staying here again!

    « Nice stay in Kemmerer »

    Several members of our family stayed in this hotel recently for a family reunion. The hotel was very well run, modern and customer oriented. Cookies were available in the evening in the lobby and a delicious, varied breakfast in the morning. The staff, from the front desk to maintenance people in the hall were friendly and helpful, and accommodating for our needs for the reunion. We would definitely stay here again.

    « Very Comfortable & well apointed »

    Booked based on reviews on Trip Advisor - new property and very well run. Check in was a breeze and fresh fruit infused water a welcome treat! Quiet location. The breakfast offering the next AM was a pleasant surprise - varied offering with lots of options. Well worth the stop.

    « Great Hotel »

    This hotel has the best beds and a great staff out of all the hotels we stay. The rooms are also very quiet. I would not consider staying anywhere else. I sometimes want to drive the hour drive just to stay here.

    « Nice motel, cold hot tub »

    Booked this hotel specifically for the pool and hot tub and paid the extra money instead of staying down the street at the Super 8. Clerk said the pool and hot tub wear working but after unpacking found the hot tub was luke warm. Clerk tried to fix but no luck. He did offer a 15% discount for the cold tub. Otherwise, the breakfast and room were good.

    « business »

    Friendly staff- clean hotel- good breakfast. Best place to stay in Kemmerer, WY. Have used workout room before, it will satisfy any exercise needs you may have. Have not used pool or hot tub but hotel is very clean. Wouldn't hesitate to use if had the time & energy.


    Excellent staff, accommodations, fresh cookies in the afternoon, great breakfast variety. Have stayed here before and have always been pleased. Staff was able to give us a room even though we arrived early. Helpful in finding a place to eat - even though town has few choices.

    « Very Nice »

    It's a Best Western in the middle of nowhere, but a welcome spot after a day of adventuring. The pool is open 24 hours and the breakfast has a lot of variety and was well stocked. The bed was comfy and the room clean. It's near the Fossil Quarries and the Fossil Butte National Monument.

    « Always A Great Stay »

    I usually stay at the Best Western Plus Fossil Country Inn & Suites at least once a year and sometimes more and it is alway a great experience. The breakfast crew always makes you feel like family and put on a great spread. The front desk people are always helpful and make checking in and out easy. The rooms are quiet, clean and very comfortable. The maid service is outstanding.

    « The best Best Western! »

    We completely enjoyed our stay. The place looks brand new. Large clean rooms, huge breakfast area, indoor pool and spa. Breakfast included scrambled eggs, sausage, hash browns and assortment of pastries plus more. The staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We stayed in 3 Best westerns this trip and this one was by far the best of the three.

    « Great Best Western Plus Hotel in Kemmerer WY »

    This was a very clean hotel with comfortable beds. The breakfast included was good. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. The young man at the reception desk was very helpful in giving us details about things to see in the city and area and also gave us a very good tip of where to have dinner. I would stay here again!

    « A Very Nice Best Western »

    We recently spent two nights at this lovely Best Western, and had a very enjoyable stay. The hotel is very pretty and well maintained. It sits on a hill and although it was quite windy, it was peaceful with pretty scenery all around. The location is convenient to everything in the Kemmerer area. Our room was beautifully decorated with two queen beds, a very comfortable chair with ottoman, desk, microwave and refrigerator. The room was quite large, very clean and the beds were comfortable. We travel with our small dog so we were in a pet friendly room on the 1st floor next to the back entrance which worked out great. The front desk staff was efficient and friendly. The cookies in the evening were a nice treat. The breakfast was great, with a large variety including eggs, meat, waffles, cereal, fruit and cinnamon rolls. The room was large with plenty of room to sit and the attendant kept everything well stocked. The Best Western in Kemmerer is a great place to stay, and I highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area.

    « Great Place. Very Satisfied. »

    Stayed two nights with my son. The hotel is new and very nice. We found it to be quiet, very clean and comfortable. The hotel offers a great selection of breakfast items and they were frequently replenished. The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel also has a small assortment of snacks and misc items for sale. I found this very handy when I used the I used laundry facilities as they sold detergent on site. Very handy. Highly recommend this hotel.

    « Traveling to Fossil Butte with kids »

    Great modern hotel, nice big room. Great breakfast and cookies & ice water in the lobby at lunch. After a long day of traveling, it was wonderful to have the nice clean pool for the kids to cool off in. The hotel was handy to local restaurants. We were extremely happy with the service and everything about this hotel while visiting Fossil Butte.

    « Best Western Plus Fossil Country Inn & Suites »

    This property is not labelled right, this was a Premier property. Beautiful inside and out. It sits overlooking the city of Diamondville, a city that was warm and welcoming. The front desk staff are great, David gave us the best recommendations for food & directions. The room was LARGE and beautiful, and spacious. The ceilings throughout must be 10 ft high, the lobby is so welcoming. One of the best we have had the pleasure to stay at!

    « Breakfst fare »

    Enjoyed the variety of breakfast and that they did not start cleaning up early. Staff waited quietly as we finished the meal, so we did not feel rushed as we have at other motels. The check-in staff was very pleasant and helpful.

    « A very modern hotel excellent value for money »

    We were travelling up to Yellowstone from Bryce canyon and needed a stop on the way . I booked this hotel in January this year and it was excellent value compared to hotels / Motels in Jackson further north. We were greeted by very welcoming chap at reception and were more than pleased with our room, The room facilities included fridge microwave and coffee maker. room was spotless and beds were very good. Free breakfast was included.

    « A great loding option in Kemmerer »

    This is an excellent Best Western hotel and the nicest property in Kemmerer. The rooms are nicely appointed, clean, and very comfortable. The hotel provides an excellent breakfast. The staff members are welcoming and well-informed. The check in and check out processes are smooth.

    « Best hotel in town! »

    We stayed here each year for the past few years when we've gone to Kemmerer to dig for fossil fish. The hotel is one f the best Best Western's we've ever stayed in. We stayed there for 8 nights and got the room with 2 queens and a sitting area (a suite). The suite costs an extra $20/night but in our opinion is totally worth it. The room is spacious and clean. It provides free breakfast each day with many options. My personal favorite is making waffles. We actually bought a waffle maker for our home after staying here a couple of years ago. Great staff.

    « Always a great experience »

    This is the third time staying here with my brother and grandkids before or after digging for fossils. The staff from the front desk to the people who lay out the breakfast have always been very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and nice and the kids love to swim in the pool. I will recommend this hotel to everyone.

    « A real nice break from traveling »

    I've stopped here before and I'll continue to stop in the future. The hotel is clean, up to date, comfortable and noiseless. The bed is big and comfortable. All rooms have the amenities I want; frig, microwave, iron, hair dryer, etc. The staff is friendly and work to get you the best deal.

    « A great experience »

    My wife and I stayed 7 nights here while doing fossil hunting nearby and were very pleased with our stay. The room was clean, spacious and had a comfortable bed. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful during our stay. The breakfast was good every morning, and the staff were always pleasant. The pool is open 24hrs a day which was nice also. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone that will be staying in the Kemmerer/Diamondville area

    « Don't Stay Anywhere Else »

    I was pleasantly surprised at this property. I didn't know anything about this area. I was here for business and book the hotel on line. The staff is excellent. The room was very comfortable; and the breakfast was very good. The town is small, so there are several little restaurants close. If you are staying in Kemmerer or Diamondville, stay at this hotel. You won't be disappointed.

    « Best Kemmerer has to offer! »

    New hotel, a bit out of the center of town, but clean, fresh and fairly priced. Large rooms, fairly priced, and helpful staff. Too far to walk to restaurants, but driving into Kemmerer lets you take in some of the local history and "charm". Strong WiFi and satellite TV.

    « Great Place »

    Everything about our stay here was excellent. I am 6' tall and the shower actually comes out of the wall at about the 7' level so I had the best hotel/motel shower I can remember. Most of them hit me in the head or worse yet, the chest. Great bathroom ventilation, no steam build up on the mirror. Great staff, great beds, and very clean

    « Well worth the stay »

    We were on the first floor of this motel, and it was the epitome of pleasant. Welcoming staff, attention to detail from shower to breakfast table. We are well-traveled individuals, and have read exuberant reviews only to find the real deal a different story. This deserves our exuberant review. Clean, comfy, big beds, quiet-quiet-quiet with tall ceilings to absorb second floor noise. We were on a fossil dig sponsored by the museum where we volunteer as dinosaur bone preparers, and if it wasn't for the grandkids waiting at home for us, we would have willingly spent another night for good rest. Note: some of the local restaurants are purty decent - Kemmerer is not a new visit for us, and it's shown its wear and tear, but the folks in town work to provide a good plate of food for visitors. Kemmerer's elevation is high, so it's colder longer. June is cool and wet, so summers are short but pleasant, and September gets cooler and wetter again. Fossil hunters: bring jackets.

    « It's not fancy but it's a good value for the money... »

    If you're going fossil hunting this hotel, though not the only game in town, is the only name brand hotel on offer in Kemmerer. Even though they have the corner on the market they still offer a good value for your money. The location is close to everything in the small town, the people are nice and the rooms are clean. Two things deserve extra mention. First, something about the way the hotel is laid out gives the impression of spaciousness, perhaps the wide hallways or the way it's perched on a hill with a sweeping view. Whatever it is, it gives a nice feel to the place. Secondly, the breakfast room has been so well thought out that you never have to hunt down personnel for another cup of coffee or more napkins, etc. Everything is self-serve and the breakfast is quite decent and ample. It's not fancy but it's a good value for the money.

    « A beautiful hotel in fossil fish country!!! »

    We stayed here as a part of the recent Tate Conference, having traveled down from Casper. After a long day in a nearby fish quarry, the Best Western was like an oasis in the desert! The room was clean and spacious; everything was in really good order! The breakfast was very nice, although our group pushed the smaller size of the room and supplies!

    « surprising »

    The rooms are huge, super clean, quiet, nice beds, linens and pillows. Breatkfast is average but plenty of choices in a very nice room. If you are staying in Kemmerer, this is definitely the best choice and so much nicer than you will expect!

    « Great!! »

    This hotel is great!! (and is the best option in the town), the lobby is spacious, the have water and coffee (free) all day long and cookies at 5.00 pm!!, the staff is helpful and friendly (The lady in the front desk was great). They have a pool and a little gym. Our room was large and clean, have a microwave and fridge, they have free WiFi. Is close to a Subway and a gas station. Highly recommended!

    « Best Western, Kemmerer, WY »

    An oasis in the middle of nowhere. This is a typical BW property with free breakfast, wifi (a bit spotty), fitness / pool whirlpool and a couple conference rooms. It appears to be the only decent lodging choice for 50 miles in any direction.

    « Outstanding Stay »

    The best hotel for miles around. The staff is friendly, helpful and try to make you stay a pleasant one. Breakfast is great with plenty of variety. Scrambled Eggs each morning. Bacon and sausage alternate days. Hot and cold cereal. Outstanding.

    « First rate over night stay »

    Clean, comfortable and a great night's sleep. Very much recommend this hotel if visiting Fossil Butte (or just passing through). If we're ever in this part of the USA again would stay without hesitation. Unfortunately the distance from London in the UK means we probably won't be able to!

    « Best place to stay in Western Wyoming »

    Friendly employees, very clean and comfortable. One of the best breakfasts we have had staying at hotels. The staff went way out of their way to make our stay very enjoyable. This is definitely a great place to stay.

    « Very Nice Place to Stay!!!! »

    This is a Brand new Hotel. It was very nice. It was very affordable. The staff was very nice and helpful. The rooms were very clean. The beds were awesome. The breakfast was on of the best that we have had. We will defiantly be staying here again on our next fossil hunting adventure!

    « nice place to stop »

    this hotel is always clean and the staff is very friendly. This is a nice stop in a very small town. the food is always good and the pool is open 24hrs which is nice when I can't sleep. I would much rather stay here than down the road in Evanston. It isn't too far from the fossil quarries.

    « An excellent stay!! »

    This is a fairly new location so, as you would expect, things are nice & clean with the latest & greatest amenities. The beds here were very comfortable, the shower head (one of my favorite gripes) was very nice and the room was nice & quiet. The only thing we had an issue with, was the room lighting - which simply wasn't adequate. There are two table lamps & a matching floor lamp. The floor lamp worked intermittently at best and between the three really didn't supply enough light. Now - if that's the biggest problem we had - that's not bad at all. The staff was beyond wonderful and accommodating. Ohhhh - one detail they need to address is actually getting to the hotel! The "entrance" is not directly by the hotel itself - but a couple hundred yards down the road, with only a fairly small sign to identify the turn off. A larger sign would be very helpful for first-time visitors (assuming local codes would allow it).

    « Brand new & Clean »

    Great location with free breakfast and good wifi. What could be better?! Just outside Kemmerer and a short drive to Fossil Butte National Monument, which we highly recommend for the fossil enthusiasts in your life. Dress warm, even in April.

    « Best Stay in Kemmerer »

    Great staff and very clean rooms. The breakfast is great with a full, hot breakfast. Enjoyed the comforts! The Internet was a bit slow but I hear they are getting fiber Internet at this Hotel soon. The clean remotes are a bit hard to manipulate but I appreciate the cleanliness of them. My door entry key stopped working three times but it wasn't hard to get them reprogrammed.

    « Just like home!! »

    This hotel is very clean, very efficient and friendlier than any hotel I've ever stayed! The beds were comfortable, the breakfast was amazing and I highly recommend it whenever you visit Kemmerer! Oh...they had cookies every afternoon and evening and they were excellent.

    Very well maintained property with excellent staff. Meeting arrangements were effortless and everything was provided just as planned. Our entire group was very happy with the experience and will certainly return if we have additional business in the area.

    « Clean, friendly, new »

    Very nice place to stay? Kemmerer is off the beaten path, but well worth the visit with the first J.C. Penney store and nearby Fossil Beds N.M. The BW is a comfortable base from which to explore the area.

    « Clean and comfortable! »

    Best Western Fossil Country Inn and Suites is a great place to stay. I have stayed here many times for business. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend staying here!

    « Very nice place »

    This has changed my view of best western hotels. The hotel appears to be brand new or kept to impeccable standards. The staff was very helpful. I was surprised the hotel is actually on the south side of Diamondville and not in Kemmerer but it is a 5 minute drive through both; just watch for the deer wandering through town which was really cool to see.

    « ExxonMobil Inspections »

    The hotel had everything I could ask for. The highlight was how everybody there took their time to answer my questions about the area and recommendations for eating. Already made reservations to stay there this summer for Kemmerer's annual bluegrass festival.

    « Great place to stay »

    Rooms were very clean and up to date. Staff was terrific. Lobby was decorated for the Christmas season to the point that folks from town were coming there to take pictures. The staff was very helpful with guests who had problems getting their vehicles started (-20 Degrees without windchill).

    « A welcome comfort »

    This place always has comfortable beds and is like an oasis in a dessert. By far the best hotel within 90 miles. I recommend this hotel to anyone working in or around Kemmerer. While breakfast is typical fare, it is better than anything in Kemmerer.

    « Nice / Clean Hotel »

    When traveling to or through Kemmerer, WY. I always stay at this hotel. It's very nice, clean and convenient whether you are by yourself or with family. Not what you would expect in a small town. I highly recommend others to stay here.

    « Excellent, would stay again in a heartbeat! »

    I would recommend this hotel. The room was very clean, as was the workout room and swimming pool! Friendly staff, excellent selection for breakfast (bacon, hash brown triangles, scrambled eggs, waffles, fruit, etc.)

    « Best hotel in Kemmerer »

    No doubt this is the best hotel in Kemmerer. Stayed at the Super8 last time and they charged me way too much for what I received. No breakfast, even though they said I would have breakfast. This hotel is beautiful, has great beds, staff is wonderful, and the breakfast is flat out amazing for a non five star hotel.

    Spent a week in Kemmerer on a fishing vacation. this property was the best accommodations in the area. Breakfast was an added bonus. Rooms were nice and quiet. WOuld be nice if BW had a diner here, as there is limited eating establishments in Kemmerer, especially after 9PM.

    « New property that's top-of-the-line »

    We loved every part of our stay here. The front desk staff was very helpful and recommended an excellent local restaurant. The room was HUGE! Breakfast was very good, and everything was so clean. I had never been a fan of Best Western before, but I've certainly changed my mind. Our quiet room was just what we needed after a day of travelling. The town is small but worth a look; don't expect a booming city. Certainly cute with only a few options for food.

    « If you stay in Kemmerer, stay here »

    Best hotel in Kemmerer, but we got in at 9:00 PM and there were only 2 choices to eat. Pizza hut and arctic circle. Town could use some restaurants open till at least 10 PM. Hotel was nice and comfortable though and had a decent free breakfast

    « Great place to spend the night »

    Best Western PLUS Fossil Country Inn & Suites is a very convenient, affordable, excellent quality motel to spend the night while traveling. Most surprising were the very comfortable beds with gel pillows, and quiet room affording a very restful nights sleep.

    « Work trip »

    I have been enjoying my stay. Since a good quiet evening is my goal it has been reached. Nice, clean and comfy room. I leave before breakfast but they serve from 6 to 9 am. A bit of bussel up till about 8 pm last night then it was peaceful enough to lay down. Respectful staff and guests. Definitely recommend. Only downside is no restraunt on site for evening meals.

    « Fossil Safari »

    I would recommend this Hotel to anyone traveling to the area, it was one of the cleanest, most friendly places I have ever stayed at. Requiring 200 minimum characters for this review makes me not want to do any more reviews for Trip Advisor.That's all I've got to say about that.

    « Kemmerer »

    The Best Western PLUS Country Inn & Suites is the best place to stay in Kemmerer, Wyoming. The staff is friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and had all the ammenities. It was a welcoming treat after spending the day in the quarry.

    « A great stay »

    A new and well run motel on the edge of a small town. So it was very quiet and relaxing. The nearby Fossil Butte visitor center's displays are outstanding, worth the trip, and this is by far the best place to stay when seeing them!

    « The Only Place to Stay »

    It seemed to us that this hotel was clearly the best in the area. Not fancy; but It was simple, clean, and had good mattresses. The best thing about it was that it had a "do it yourself laundromat" in it. After digging for fossils, you NEED ONE! We were so glad we didn't have to pack all our dusty clothes!
