I have stayed here twice for over night stays. They except pets and the rooms both were clean. The showers had plenty of hot water, The best thing about the stay here is the breakfast. The breakfast is included with the price. The breakfast is at the restaurant connect to the hotel. Good food

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

It is so exciting when somebody “gets” you. Thank you for paying such close attention to detail and then sharing it here. 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. We look forward... More

The only growl I have for this older, updated lodge is the heater every now and then would really be noisy shutting off; sounded to me like a bearing of something similar going out. I really liked it when the heater was on, it was so soft and soothing, you just fell asleep listening to it. We had checked in... More

Passing thru on our way to Helena and decided to stop and sleep over. Arrived about 10 pm and was greeted with a friendly face at the front desk. Room was clean and quaint. Lots of charm! Great $5 breakfast as well. Can't wait to stop over again on my way thru next year!

The lobby is cute and quaint but my room was disgusting. The pictures they have online look nothing like the actual room you stay in or at least the one that they put me in. It was the dirtiest hotel I have ever stayed in. The carpets had giant stains, the bathroom walls had green astro-turf on the walls with... More

We were just passing through billings for the night and this place was perfect! It is very clean, affordable and great service. We stayed in the suite which was so affordable especially for a Friday night and had a kitchen supplied with all the cooking essentials. The lodge is so adorable as well. I defidently would recommend this hotel and... More

My lifelong dream was to go and visit Yellowstone! I finally did and stayed at the Dude Rancher. What a fantastic place to stay. The hotel is very Western-isque and the staff is great! I spoke to the General Manager Todd about my dream trip and gave me lots of helpful suggestions and maps and must do things. He also... More

A unique lodging experience. Love the western theme. Very warm and quaint environment with great staff. Central location in downtown Billings is a plus with easy parking. So much better than hotel chain experiences.

My wife and I have stayed at the Dude Rancher Lodge a number of times in recent years. We've always enjoyed our stays, but the recent renovations made this latest visit even better! The manager and staff are friendly and accommodating and the price can't beat.

Arrived late at night on a trip driving through Montana, quick check in, great location, walking distance to restaurants, affordable, friendly staff. I would stay at the hotel again. Seemed fair price for the room.
