Editor Picks: The best affordable and cheap hotels in Casper

by Alexander Castro  |  Published October 17, 2017

This Wyoming city of about 55,000 people is nicknamed “The Oil City,” given the oil booms that once occurred there. It’s noted for its history of pioneers and cowboys, thus locales like the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center and Fort Caspar, which holds historical exhibits and reconstructions. But there’s also present-day delight here, like the Nicolaysen Art Museum, and unlike the brutal realities of pioneer life, present-day Casper is safe for kids: it’s been ranked as an especially family-friendly city. Visitor numbers peak in the summer. In the chilly winters, hikers and campers on nearby Casper Mountain are replaced by skiers and snowboarders.

When selecting the following properties, we aimed for optimum value and high ratings from past customers (preferably an 8 or higher) on Booking.com. To price the hotels we tested several dates (weekdays and weekends) for possible visits and chose the lowest. We also considered location and access to nearby amenities, attractions and the city center.
