While I found some things dated, it was nice. I got a good nights sleep. We stayed here on the way back from Vegas, and I am sure that contributed to me thinking the room seemed very small. I found the staff to be very nice and helpful.

Booked this hotel based on its historic quality but the best aspect was the location. It it within walking distance of Montana Brewing Company as well as several banks and eating establishments. The hotel itself has a cafe that upon check in you receive $5 coupon per guest per day. The food is good and the coffee hot! We stayed... More

Stayed at the Dude Rancher recently on a business trip; it was close to the convention center I was attending the next day. Rooms were clean and quirky with unique, but pleasant western decor. Heating and cooling system was definitely the biggest issue; couldn't get the room at a desired temperature. Also, the carpet on the walls in the bathroom... More

This is the first time my wife and I have stayed at the Dude Rancher and we really liked it. It is Western themed and in a great down-town location close to restaurants and bars. Our room had a King bed and a bathtub with jacuzzi jets. The room was clean and also had a fridge and microwave, flat tv,... More

Love the rustic western décor here! Hall carpeting full of brands, stair banister is a huge rope, lots of wood paneling. Nice, comfortable room and free off-street parking. Very convenient to downtown restaurants, right next to the new public library. Didn't need the café adjacent but nice to have it for future stays. Secure w-fi too. Comfortable bed and pillows.

We recently spend a couple of nights at the Dude Rancher Lode in Billings MT while in town to take our Nursing Boards. The staff was very friendly and accommodating.

I travel quite a bit and I get really sick of the cookie cutter chain hotels. This place was quaint and had some great Western decorating Pet friendly nice clean room and a jet tub! Rooms are a little small for extended stay. Loved the decor! Comfortable clean place to stay,

Stayed 2 nights on very comfortable beds. Thought the decor was interesting then found out the Dude Rancher was built in 1950 and patterned after the "Old West" vision of the day. Then the knotty pine paneling, hand-hewed furniture (all over the place-even in the cafe) and rough laid brick all made sense. Brands stitched into the carpet. OK -... More

I am also happy you enjoyed our new European pillow top mattresses and breakfast at Stirrups our on-site café. Soon you will be able to say you remember those out dated sinks and wall paper.
