This is an average hotel that could use some upgrades on the mattresses. The shower and sink are in the same room which is a downside if you're traveling with a large family to get ready in the morning. Location was convenient within walking distance of Montana brewing company and Starbucks.

Thank you for your business and for taking the time to give us a review. I'm surprised, our mattresses are less than a year old and we always get great feedback on them. Our location is one of our best features. We look forward to having you stay with us on your next visit to Billings. More

This is an older property that has been kept up fairly well. For a non smoking property it was fulled with the smell of people smoking. Rooms are small, but they are clean. The value of the rooms is not really worth what you pay. Not close to the highway and not close to any restaurants. Off street parking is... More

First, thank you for sharing your experience and taking the time to write a review here. We are in the heart of downtown, less than a mile from the highway. I think you may have missed our "extra" parking lot located outside our courtyard area, we have ample parking and can accommodate buses and trailers. Within a 3 block radius... More

We spent 4 nights at the lodge and were not disappointed. The staff are friendly and happy to assist with recommendations re trips etc. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. While there was no breakfast option with our package there were several options close by including an in house restaurant. We ate there for dinner on 2 occasions and... More

This hotel is fine. It is older and there are weird pipes in weird places and the bathroom was a little funky. The people were super nice though. Billings isn't exactly a happening place - so if you just need overnight lodging this place is fine....I didn't feel unsafe or dirty. It just wasn't refreshing.

My friend and I were pleased with the area, and the lobby as well as the room were very clean (except the one cloth wall to the left of the sink). The room was comfortable and quiet. The shower head really needs an upgrade and some cigarette smells wafted up from the lower floor but all else was great. When... More

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review here. After reading your review I had a conversation with the staff and am confident we sorted everything out on that end. All of our rooms are non-smoking and our front desk staff is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week so if there is smoke smell... More

I wanted to stay near downtown so we could walk to restaurants and window shop. The Dude Rancher website looks much better than the hotel really is. It is old and not many improvements have been done. The carpet seemed very dirty and the air conditioner could not keep up with the 105 temperature. We would not stay here again.

While in down town billings for a concert we happened upon this hotel. We were presently greeted by the staff and put up for the night. We enjoyed the decor and the breakfast the next morning @ the restaurant was very good! We have been back numerous times.

This motel goes way back in history and since has been re-vamped but has kept its decor and flavor of the early west. It has had entertainers stay as well as politicians.
