Looks a little rough around the edges from the road, but aside from the motel 6, I'd venture to say this is the cheapest motel in Bozeman. Inside, the rooms were big, and had a decent tv. Paid around 50 for it, and thought it was a good deal. The pet deposit is cheap too.

We arrived late in Bozeman and needed a budget room for one (1) night for six (6) people. We weren't looking for major frills since we just needed some rest on our cross-country trek. There was one (1) woman working who took our friend to see a room that seemed to be away from the other "typical" rooms and took... More

We stayed one night on October 13th, 2014. It was late and all we wanted was a clean place to sleep and not spend the money for an up scale motel/hotel ($60.85 total). It was late and the only room left was the Ranch House. It was two bedroom, living room, kitchen and bath (tub& shower). It was old but... More

We got into town late and found this hotel. The woman at the hotel was very friendly, although a little stressed. It seems she is the only housekeeper and the only front desk employee. Obviously this hotel is having some financial issues or the owner is just a hotel slumlord. We first took a cheaper room, it was the only... More

OK, let's look at this for what it is. My daughter has a dog, this fit the bill. The rooms were cheap considering the town and time of year, but......... the bed was worn out, there were some nasties in the room. There is no refridge, micowave, coffee maker or much else. The AC unit is a self install window... More

Worst motel/hotel/hostel experience of my life. Would not recommend in a million years; sleeping in the car would be better. I did end up going to the Motel 6 in Bozeman after this, which was actually an incredible motel, especially considering it was the same price as the Ranch House. For the full story read below: I called the Ranch... More

The Ranch House is the epitome of the worn 1950s motor inn. The location is convenient - just off the interstate and close to downtown. But maintenance is lax (peeling paint), basic services missing (no wake-up calls, but they'll give you an alarm clock). All this was minor stuff for a cheap motel. But no bath towels? That's an impressive... More

We paid $79 + tax for a very basic 2 double (not queen) room. If you have driven by the single story motels on the side of the road that are built right on the ground and thought "I would never stay there" you know the ranch house motel. On the plus side the service was friendly (how can you... More

Dont even look at the other reviews. The complex is Very old and insecure. It has a door nob but it doesn't even look like it will protect me from something. The shower looks terrible and smell very bad. Lythols smell everywhere. Hard to breath. I would go some place else

If you want cheap and old, then this is it. $49 for 2 people. The room was what would be expected. It was clean but smelled terribly of Lysol. The AC did work well
