Nice hotel in the center of Billings. We were able to walk to dinner and breakfast and around town from the hotel easily. The room was nicely decorated and western themed which was fun. My only problem with it was we had noisy neighbors but other than that not a bad place to stay while you are in Billings. I... More

arriving to find a demolition site next door didn't quite put us off, though some advance warning from the management might have been advisable Easy to find, not far from the main part of town ( walkable to restaurants) its well located, but suffers like many motels ( as this is in fact really what it is as opposed to...

My partner and I arrived on a Sunday afternoon. The woman at the desk was hostile and disorganized. The carpet is smelly, and the rooms are made of cinderblocks. On Monday morning I arrived at the attached restaurant to get breakfast and got amazing shade from the head-something, a woman with deep hate in her heart. She treated me so... More

We definitely felt we had arrived in the west. Seemed clean enough and the decor was a hoot. Some people would find the double room cramped, but it was fine for a single night. There is no continental breakfast.

Beyond disappointed. Has potential but needs major cleaning and decor freshened. The walls are a dingy white-ish brick yet paper thin, even with ear plugs in we listened to drunk foreigners next door shouting and banging on the doors in hall at 3:00 AM! The carpet is filthy, stains everywhere and even wet in areas! We kept shoes by bed... More

We stayed overnight on our journey back from Ontario to BC. Had read the reviews, seemed okay, but when we got there...not a great part of the city. Two doors, one didn't lock, the other the bolt worked. Beds sagged, carpet was moldy and absolutely filthy. Wanted an extra $1.00 on the rate and it had only been one week... More

In downtown Billings, this is a unique, ranch-style lodge/motel with an industrial flat weave branded carpet on the floor and open beam wooden ceiling on the second floor. Our room was not noticeably worn, although obviously not new. Suzanne, at the front desk, was very courteous and attentive. We especially appreciated that she took into consideration our special needs (chemical... More

Decided to stay at the Dude Rancher for a short stay, a few hours. It was the cheapest of any of the hotels I could find. It has a weird set-up, as you can't really see the lobby from the road. Myself and another traveler were having a difficult time locating the lobby. Check-in was quick and easy, but they... More

Reserved two rooms for family coming to town. The lobby was nice with a western feel. The two rooms were connected and each was really large. That said, the rooms were obviously quite aged and not updated at all. It felt like walking into a run down 1960 movie set. The carpets were stained, the walls dingy, and the rooms... More

The upper floor had been recently upgraded but maintain the western charm of the facility. It's a great location for downtown Billings, right in the heart of things. The staff was friendly and did a good job accommodating anything we needed.
