Retro Roadtrip: Little American Hotel Resort in Cheyenne Wyoming

What we love about Mid-Century travel is feeling you’ve been thrown back in timelittleamerica6 to a period where motor travel was cool, lounging by the pool was the most fun you could have as a kid and Motels took guests seriously and didn’t just provide you with an impersonal place to sleep.

Little America in Cheyenne is just such a unique place. Luxurious, but a throw back to another time, with a decorating scheme in the French Provincial style, it’s timeless, but with that old classy motel air that makes it a pleasure to stay.

The grounds provide lovely views of the Wyoming prairie and are beautifully landscaped with flower gardens and the pool is fabulous with comfortable lunch chairs that made me crave that afternoon martini!

Our favorite amenities include:

  • Full-service restaurant
  • Lounge and gourmet coffee shop
  • 9-hole executive golf course
  • Over-sized, heated, outdoor pool
  • Fitness centerlittleamerica2
  • Room service
  • Gift shop
  • Kids’ playground
  • Wireless Internet – with a good connection!
  • Mini refrigerator in the room
  • Free HBO
  • Data port and High speed Internet access
