The hotel was like taking a step back in time. Antique displays, furniture and deco were all interesting and beautiful. The rooms were nice, so authentic to the hotel and beds were comfy. The staff is wonderful!! It was like staying with a family, not some impersonal cold chain hotel feel. The Busy Bee was wonderful at breakfast and the...

I love old historic hotels, and this one is a must stay. I take an out West road trip at least once a summer and can't believe I never stayed here before. Nice little town and great adjacent saloon...look for the bullet holes in the ceiling. Perfect stop for a ride next day through Ten Sleep Canyon.

A great old historic hotel/saloon experience. Totally authentic. Comfortable, period-decorated rooms. Reasonable. Loads of historical info. Close to Big Horn Mountains and outdoor activities. Walkable downtown.

This is an historic hotel which does take you back in time. We walked into the lobby and were awestruck at the memorabilia in the room. Service in the bar was very good, but animal lovers beware as the walls are loaded with stuffed wildlife of every sort - taxidermy is alive and well in Buffalo. Our room on the...

From the moment we pulled in front of the hotel, I knew this was going to be a unique experience. I was met by a young porter who escorted me into the lobby and showed me to the registration desk. As I walked through the front door and into the lobby, I felt as though I had walked through a...

We have stayed 2 different times. I think there is good music every night, but it is fabulous on Thursday nights. Unbelievable. It's so convenient to stay right in the hotel, even though it is very old.

As you open the door and walk into the Hotel Lobby it feels like you have walked into the past. Then, you go into the Saloon and you have definitely walked into the past once again. This Hotel has so much history and then they have pictures on the wall of the important people that have stayed there in the...

Even if you usually stay in chain hotels, give this one a try. As others have said, it is old, dated, etc. True. But how often do you get a chance to stay in a hotel over 100 years old? Room actually uses a real key! Very clean, comfortable, restored to perfection. Read each room's description, as they are all...

This hotel is so very unique and truly is beautiful. There is so much to look at and discover so take your time and really take it all in. We stayed in the Cloud Peak Suite which again was outstanding, very comfortable and spacious. The staff are so friendly and helpful and it's clear they love this beautiful place and...
