Hubby and I stayed here one night on our way back to CA. It was clean and around $70. Clean and comfy, no frills, coffee was available in the office in the morning and they offered free wifi. They have some unique gifts for sale in the office, including buffalo horns

I would recommend this place "overall." I had to stay an extra day in town due to weather, and wanted something cheap. It was off-season, and I was offered a rate even a few dollars lower than the one I researched well and stayed at for a week! It is located close to the outskirts of the town,and on the... More

We hit Cody on a three week trip through the region. We had been mixing our stays between camping and modest hotels, and since it was really warm weather for Wyoming fall day, A/C seemed appropriate. After checking out several places that looked like they might fit our cheapskate needs, only to get tourist season prices and some rude folks,... More

The front office people were exceptional, the room was big, clean and quiet, so what else to expect from a simple motel? Perhaps somewhat lower rates, but mine was not so bad, as some AARP people who checked in just before me paid more for a less comfortable location...

Huge rooms, nice location, clean, close to the end of town where the museums are and the entrance to yellowstone. Very friendly staff. My only problem is wifi. Connection is awful. Not a big deal for one night but would be a problem for multiple days.

My wife and I just needed a place to sleep and shower. Really expensive for what we got, but last rooms in town. Price was almost 2 bones. We got 4 beds, a small tv and bathroom. Felt like the 50's or 60's, but was a good rest.

The people here are unbelievably nice. I spoke to three folks on different days and they were friendly and cheerful and fun to talk with. I didn't speak with them about problems, though, for I had none. It was just for check-in and general conversation. The room is basic, but comfortable. The window screens were easily punched out, though, so... More

We stayed here on a Saturday night so Sunday dawned and it was difficult to find breakfast. The rooms were reasonable and clean. We had a room with knotty pine furniture. It was quiet and wifi reasonable. We managed a bite to eat at a fuel station across the way. The manager was very helpful. As Australians apart from the... More
