The "Ox" as locals call it, is a beautifully maintained gem of a hotel and saloon from the 1800's. It was booked and we didn't get to stay here, but we did enjoy the Saloon and take a look around the public areas of the hotel. The very very friendly staff is happy to show the place to visitors.

I stayed there in June for three nights and enjoyed these days very much. The weather wasn't very good, but if you are in the Occidental, it doesn't matter. Everybody who likes the history of the Old West should have been there, not only for a visit in the hotel of an hour, but for some days! Not to forget... More

On a 6000 mile roadtrip, I reserved the Hole in the Wall room for a night, to fall between the Badlands, Mt Rushmore and the Devil's Tower on the east, and Yellowstone on the west. Did not tell my wife. As we came into Buffalo after dark, she was completely puzzled where we would be spending the night, after passing... More

Tips for travelers, make sure you are going to stay the nights reserved because if you have a change of plans you will not get a refund unless ALL the rooms get rented. At first sight it is a lovely historic hotel, but our room, Owen Wister, had cockroaches, tons of dead bugs in windowsill, a broken toilet seat, mold... More

My wife and I were in Buffalo, WY for the July Longmire celebration. Great event in a great little town. If you are fortunate enough to visit, you MUST take in the Occidental Hotel and Saloon. It is loaded with old west history. We were not able to stay in one of the rooms frequented by famous characters like Butch... More

Linda and I stayed 3 nights in the President Hoover suite. We were very satisfied with the room(s), at least during the time we spent inside...All of the staff members were more than helpful in regards to information about places to see and things to do in the Buffalo/Johnson County area. Make sure to explore the rest of the hotel,... More

Stayed in President Hoover Suite on the Ground (US First) floor. Ate in bar as on Sunday the restaurant was closed. Enjoyed too many drinks in a unique Western place with music provided by our host on his guitar. Food and beer great. Atmospheric and not to be missed!

We stayed two nights in the Teddy Roosevelt room and loved it. The Occidental is a very well preserved/restored example of a true Old West hotel. It is filled with old photographs and antiques. If you are looking for an ultra modern hotel, this is not it. However if you want to feel the true 'Old West', this is the... More

Other reviews were a bit mixed so we decided only to stay one night instead of the two originally planned. We should have stayed the two nights. This hotel is absolutely fantastic. We stayed in the clear creek suite at the back, which was a lovely big room full of antique furniture and full of character. The saloon is world... More

The Occidental is one of the more historic hotels in the West. It's right on the main street of Buffalo, next to a pretty creek. During the day the hotel also serves as a museum, as there are several historic displays. We had one issue---front desk staff were not particularly friendly. When we checked in, they were not that welcoming,... More
