Description: Constructed in 1892, the Historic Sheridan Inn gave adventurous travelers...
Constructed in 1892, the Historic Sheridan Inn gave adventurous travelers a taste of Eastern luxury in the West. Through the years, the Inn has remained a hub of activity, offering elegant New Year's Eve balls and the town's first electric lights. Buffalo Bill Cody sat on the front porch of the Inn auditioning acts to join the "Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show." The Inn is on the National Register of Historic Places. In October 2013, Bob and Dana Townsend became the newest owners of the Inn, bringing 21st century luxury to the 19th century building. The Inn is now open for overnight stays, banquets and tours. Lunch and dinner are also served in the Open Range Restaurant.

Kudos to the owners on a job well done renovating this historic hotel. Lots of great history, the rooms are done with high quality furnishings, and each room is named and designed after different historical people who had some history with the Inn back in the days of Buffalo Bill Cody. Definetly a place to stay especially if you want... More

We were told this Hotel had just re-opened in May 2015. We were fascinated to learn that we were sitting at the original Bill Cody Bar (circa 1893). Our bar tender was attentive and informative.

Checked in this afternoon, beautifully renovated hotel with much history. Enjoying watching a thunderstorm from the lobby after a wonderful dinner at the associated restaurant. Friendly and helpful staff. Highly recommend a night here.,

One feels connected to Wyoming's past after a night in this great spot. This place is not for you if you have to have a television, high flow shower, bland breakfast and are too used to the typical American hotel. However, if you savor staying in places with character and charm, you will more than enjoy yourself here. Bed is... More

Amazing historical atmosphere! Love the food.. We come each year on our annual visit so our grandchildren can say they've eaten there and get their picture taken on the front porch.

This hotel is only recently reopened after a lengthy renovation. The restaurant is great. I agree with other reviewers who have said that. The hotel has potential to become great. Pros include a very exceptionally friendly staff and loving attention to architectural detail. The hotel has a very interesting history and every room as been restored using top quality finishes....

Didn't stay there but had dinner and drinks in the bar. The bartender was so freindly and helpful with our questions about the area and the best routes to go. Walk around the hotel and look at all the things on the wall, from scores of pictures to mounted animal heads. The Buffalo Bill lore is everywhere!

We were fortunate enough to eat at the Sheridan Inn while on our trip to Wyoming. The food and service were great. Hubby and I had both a lunch and a dinner there-from the service to the accommodating staff we were super impressed. Their ribs are marvelous as was the salmon dinner. The week we were there they also reopened... More

Stayed here one night on our way to Montana. Beautifully restored building with themed rooms. The decor is excellent. We stayed in the Queen Victoria room which is spacious but cosy. The bathroom is large and beautifully done. The king size bed was delightfully comfortable. A wonderful place. The room rate is very reasonable and included breakfast. If you like... More
