What an amazing hotel to stay in. David and Jackie are so welcoming and helpful. The place creaks and moans. History coming out of its very pores. It's a museum, lovely place to eat, entertainment on tap. A lovely experience. Would love to return someday.

We only stayed on night (thank heavens) here and we were looking forward to it. We could unload outside the hotel but then had to move the car somewhere else. We were told not infront of City Hall they don't like it. Our room was called the cowboy suite (I think). It had access to an outside area with a... More

Hello Lutyco. Thank you for reviewing our hotel. We were sad to read about your unsatisfactory visit with us. Our city does not allow overnight parking in front of their building. We apologize with the statement "they don't like It". Our guests would be ticketed if they are parked there. I have tried to seek out the date you were... More

This was our second time to stay in Buffalo at the Occidental Hotel. This time we were offered a new room, the "Nate Champion" room. Come to find out, this room is directly above the saloon! Fortunately we were staying on a weeknight, when the saloon is not open very late. We have been before when there was a band... More

We seek out historic hotels, and this one delivers on all counts. The small town of Buffalo (pop. 4500) has retained its Old-West charm but a surprisingly wide and varied group of people comes here to patronize this hotel and its restaurant and saloon. We parked right outside, where sets of rocking chairs are set up on the sidewalk. The... More

Absolutely Extraordinary! We have been a lot of places and this was truly one of the most interesting! Whether your taking The statue of Liberty, Yosemite, Europe or what have you, "The Occidental" is right at the top for experiences!

This hotel is a good idea well done. It is clean, comfortable and authentic. The staff is friendly, personable and a pleasure to deal with. The saloon and restaurant have a great ambiance and excellent food. We recommend the rib eye! No disappointments here.

Stayed in this hotel as I had seen it last year and wanted to stay in it. It was built in 1880's and reburbished in 1990's. Most of the furnishing are from 1880's, everything creaks.... This hotel feels like it has a past you can see it too in it's library upstairs and the corridor has items of clothing and... More

I was just passing through on a very long drive. My wife found this online and made the reservation. I would not have stopped here on my own. She thought I should have some fun while on the road. She was right! I was there on jam night, Thursday, and it was the most fun I have had in a... More

The owners have done a wonderful job of restoring and keeping with the historic quality of the hotel, yet we had the modern conveniences. We really appreciated the availability of the coffee maker in the morning too. This hotel is a real treasure and when in the area, will be back again. The Virginian restaurant was FABULOUS!

I try to plan my Wyoming trip around Buffalo just so we can stay at the Occidental. What an amazing place to stay at and full of history. There is a museum on the second floor showcasing the history of the hotel. And for those of you that are Longmire fans, just hop over to the Busy Bee Cafe next... More
