The TV show that re-did a room for them would be sad. The hotel is hot, air doesnt work, carpets are stained, bedding is old and yellowed, the chair looks like its from Sandford and Son, the bathroom walls are mildew stained, the cord on the ceiling light fixture is so old its still wrapped in cloth and doesnt have...

This hotel was very unexpected. It was one of our cheapest hotels, but one of the coolest. It is almost in the middle of the city, but you feel out of it all. Loved the theme of the whole hotel. The only downfall was the rooms are on the small size. The staff was all very nice, but we did... More

I was recently in Billings on business just for one night. I'd been traveling for the last week and had stayed at two Days Inn's, one Motel 6, and one Holiday Inn Express. While they all actually turned out to be pretty decent, I really wanted to stay one night in a non-chain hotel, and thus decided to book a... More

The rates were reasonable. The air conditioner didn't work. The tv had to be turned on by the desk personnel, after 15 minutes of trying. The beds were uncomfortable. The decor was very outdated. No handicap accessibility parking available.

When deciding where wanted to rest our heads in Billings we were torn against two equivalent priced options: The Crowne Plaza and the Dude Rancher. Being a sucker for the "uniqueness and Western feel" we went with the Dude Rancher over the more conservative option. In the end I think we wish we would have went with the Cookie Cutter... More

We had booked a renovated room through the Lodge's website, and found our stay at the Dude Rancher (how can you resist that name?) one of the most pleasant over night stays on our drive across the country. Our King room was spotless, the bed was comfortable, and so quiet. They also have a beautiful, comfortable lobby. We slept like... More

I let my boyfriend choose the hotel while I was driving and he was so stoked on the lodge being called "dude rancher." While in Rome....I guess. I was skeptical, but we asked for a remodeled room (only $10 more!) and it was actually very nice. Walking distance to local bars and restaurants. Eat at the Montana brewing company!

after a long day on the road, we really enjoyed the extremely comfortable bed and the quiet room. The bathroom looked recently renovated and very clean. The King room was small but we found it very good value for a short stay. Friendly, helpfull staff at check-in and check-out. We'd definitely stay again!

In Billings, Montana's largest city, is a traditional favorite of the locals. Dude Rancher Lodge has reasonable rates for a room and a meal. A great getaway right next to downtown, the library, and entertainment.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Dude Rancher Lodge is an historic downtown Billings hotel. We are proud to be listed in the National Register of Historic Places, which is America’s official list of important properties that provide a valuable link to the past and have been deemed worthy of preservation. Built in 1949, our hotel near downtown Billings is a rustic ranch that features weeping brick mortar and full-length porches. Our interior is designed with knotty pine paneling, custom-built western-style furnishings, decorative lampshades and carpeting that is adorned with the brands of local ranchers who originally invested in the property. ... more   less
