Room was clean but way overpriced for a crappy bed and a shower we had to have the front desk person show us how to work. Needs to be updated from the 80's deco style. I have never seen an envelope left by housekeeping "in case" we wanted to leave a tip.

2 week motorcycle trip out west and had no idea of Cody Stampeed days or parade. This hotel was within our allotted nightly budget. Walking distance to restaurants and local brewery. Excellent help/staff/desk!!

Downtown and quiet usually aren't two words used in the same sentence, but we are! Walking distance to all the best shops, restaurants and considerably less than our direct competition. Lowest rates available by booking direct with the property. We are quickly selling out for the upcoming weeks, call, QUICK!! More

Brenda and Mike are fantastic hosts, and saved our trip from complete ruin! They went out of their way to help us from the moment we checked in until the time we left. The rooms are super clean, and the location is very quiet and accessible. They have accommodations for larger parties (we have 4 kids) and the price was... More

Our Family room/suite is a 2 bedroom, 1 bath. It is ideal and I wish Mark would build me another one. Thank you for all of your compliments. We'll try to help any way we can. More

Friendly people. Ideal location for shopping, restaurants and major highways access. We had a great stay. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Room rate is very affordable for a high tourist area. There is ample parking. Ideal for anyone on motorcycles.

True, we are ideal for those on bikes with close access to the Chief Joseph Scenic Byway (the most scenic road in this part of the country). On the property we have an endless supply of rags and even a bike washing station! Giddy UP! More

Three couples were road tripping through Cody- we choose the least expensive, highest TA rated motel listed. Least expensive did not mean inexpensive. Our rate was lower than other places in town, but the rates for all Cody motels are absurdly high. There are good elements here: Brenda is a good host and she is making the best of a... More

To be improved : Hooks in the bathroom for hanging towels to be reused. Freshing up the carpets. Fridge needs to be put a little higher in order to open the door easier. Good : Good beds, good TV channels, friendly staff,good coffee. Rather expensive, but then it's CODY!

My wife and I stayed here for one night in June 2014 while traveling to Yellowstone. The motel probably dates to the 1950's, but has been refurbished and is clean, quiet and comfortable. Staff was very friendly. Our room had only a shower - no tub. Good place to stay for the weary traveler wanting a good night's sleep in... More

The price was good. The room was clean and quite adequate for our needs. As brief as our stay was, we enjoyed our time there. The owner was friendly and helpful. It is obvious that the owner takes pride in the property and is making improvements.

Parking in front of your door, clean rooms, very friendly staff. Great location and easy to find. I don't think there are amenities other than free wifi, but Cody has everything you would need right on Main Street (Sheridan). If you are a traveler that spends a lot of time in your room and on the motel/hotel property, then you... More

The rooms were very clean and the owner was very friendly. The value was good compared to other local rates, but the building itself is old and in need of repair. Our first night, one of the windows would not close all the way and we were only given one room key. The hot water faucet in the bathroom would... More

Yes, the building dates back to the 70's. John Wayne stayed here when he was the Grand Marshall of the 1976 4th of July parade (the mayor owned it at that time). How they fit cars back then in this lot baffles me too, but it's better than trucking across some huge parking lot 1/2 mile from your room. Extra... More
