Proud To Be A WLRA Member: Dixon Motel
The town of Dixon, Wyoming is located on the Little Snake River Valley, the south central gateway to the Medicine Bow National Forest. The town of Dixon is proud to be the home of the Dixon Motel. Julie Hatcher, owner of the Dixon Motel conceivedand designed the motel herself to complement another property she already owns: the infamous Dixon Club across the street. Some might say that the best reason to stay at the motel is for the complimentary drink that the Dixon Club offers its guests.
The motel was completed in July 2008 and consists of 20 rooms, which each have a refrigerator and microwave. Julie designed a laundry facility and two independent showers to accommodate the hunters and workers. The majority of Julie’s business comes from oil and gas workers in the area, but they also enjoy modest business from tourists. Over-the-road truckers are very appreciative of the ample parking space for their rigs, the home-style food and hospitable welcome.
Having lived most of her own life on the road, Julie has a passion to make sure each and every guest feels special and appreciated, with Julie and her staff going “above and beyond” to make sure every guest has the best stay they’ve ever had. “It's nice to havea clean and respectable place for people to rest. We live in a beautiful area and it's nice for our guests to be rested and enjoy our area.”
Julie jokes that the only reason she joined the WLRA is “so I could have a fancy plaque to hang on the wall.” Joking aside, Julie explains that with the legal world changing hourly, she appreciates having those third-party resources that help her keep up with the real-world changes that affect her businesses. “It is comforting to know that the WLRA is really looking out for its members and REALLY cares how we are doing and want us to be successful,” Julie says.
“Sometimes in business you feel like you’re alone in what you’re doing,” says Julie. “Belonging to a group of similar business people helps me know that others have the same issues with complaints, sales tax, employees, occupancy, (can I have a discount for one night) etc. It's difficult to be a small business in a very business-hostile environment.”
