Our room was on the second floor, which gave us a dramatic view of the mountains to the west of town. The motel is near the west edge of town, away from the traffic and activity of the town center. Very clean and comfortable, no frills, reasonably priced in comparison to other choices in this tourist town. Would stay there...

We loved this motel. Very clean rooms, comfortable, friendly staff and far cheaper than other bigger chain hotels in the area. Pets were welcome. We will be staying again on our return trip home ! Parking is easy access for trailers and RVs. Ice and washer/dryer available as well. Completely satisfied!

My husband and I LOVED this place. Awesome small town friendly feel. They had a live performer the night we stayed who was awesome. It was nice sitting on their amazing lawn and just hanging out listening. All the staff were super friendly and made us feel very welcome. They have a very nice pool and a nice playground right...

A GREAT place to stay!! Rustic yet all the amenities you'd need! And the view of the mountains!?!?? FABULOUS!! Balcony runs the length of the building and allows for relaxing, beautiful scenery and chances to visit with other travelers. While they don't serve breakfast, there is a restaurant right across the street that has wonderful food and .25 coffee!! Just...

Lovely little place to stay in Cody. Bear images abound outside and in the rooms ☺ Clean and comfortable rooms close to sites. Warm and welcoming staff. Coffee in the office in the morning and a good breakfast restaurant across the road (cash only).

We booked this motel thinking it would be good for visit into Yellowstone Park. It's a nice place but 50 miles from the park and 100 miles to Old faithful. It's like a old west setting, but has heated pool, pony rides, pet friendly. Rooms clean. Air conditioner was window unit over head of bed. Good wifi, nice bench to...

This is an old motel, they still use key's for the rooms. The rooms are clean and offer plenty of clean soft towels. It is a very quaint motel full of character. I would stay here again, no problem. They have a nice small clean pool also. and have a fridge and micro in the room. They don't serve breakfast,...

There is something about this place that puts you at ease as soon as you enter the office. The warm friendly greeting and the super laid back style of the folks who run this place soon have you mellowed out and in tune with whats going on. Our party took two balcony rooms for four nights as a base for...
