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 enjoy the country western feel of the lodge and the adjoining diner had great food at a good price. The place is historic and comes with a fun history... More

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,

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.

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
