On our trip to Yellowstone we stayed for a night at the Occidental Hotel. We loved it! The Old West flavor permeates the property. We stayed in the Outlaw Suite, which for a family of four was perfect. We had a room with a double bed, another room with two twins and a separate private bathroom. The hotel is old... More

We stayed here two nights and loved every aspect of the stay, We were late arrivals [11 PM and it's a true small town hotel with a population of 4,400]. We were met by Dave who we learned is the owner. After he checked us in he asked if there was anything else we needed. We both said a beer... More

Atmosphere of hotel and room was really a pleasure. We had our own outside deck overlooking creek. The room was very comfortable - a bit on the small side so good for one or 2 persons. We could hear some of the hotel activities so not as sound proof as we'd like but activities in hotel shut down around 11pm.... More

How wonderful that this historic hotel was saved and renovated for the enjoyment of 21st century travelers! Each room or suite is named...most to honor historical guests. The staff is so helpful and kind. We were able to see the interesting upper hallway and library as well as lower common areas, all of which had tidbits of history. There are... More

We spent our anniversary night in this hotel and had a wonderful time. We were in Clear Creek, and had a lovely view of the river running thru town. The room was huge, with a nice sitting area, and a big comfy bed. I've stayed in a lot of historic hotels, and I can appreciate the older atmosphere and the... More

We went in for dinner and were served good food and lots of history. Nothing has changed for decades so you feel like you have stepped into the old West. Worth a visit. We walked around town too and enjoyed the many sculptures - especially one just across from the hotel of a sheepdog rounding up a big sheep.

We stayed here because we wanted to experience the western cowboy experience and it delivered 5 stars in that department. The decor is done so well. We stayed in the cowboy corral room which was perfect for our family of five and for the amount of space we got it was a fair price. If I'm been picky the fridge... More

I wanted to stay in this historic hotel and we absolutely loved it. There is so much history in that place and so many antiques to bring back memories. We stayed in the Hole in the Wall Room. It was so quiet and nice. The people that work there were so friendly and informative also. We were there on a... More

Little has been done to this old hotel that retains its crooked, wood floors and original doors. Rooms are filled with hand-me-down furniture or “antiques” if you prefer; but nothing in my room was valuable. If you like your hotel shiny and new, this isn’t the place for you. This is truly a historic building. It feels like a stay... More

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.
