Another great visit at the Buffalo Gap and this time we ate breakfast there too yumm So sad when Medora hotels became dog unfriendly, but than we found the B Gap where even the own says it's a great places for the pups (dogs). Very peaceful place, you don't even hear the people in the other rooms. Everyone who works... More

When we arrived we checked in at the bar as others have mentioned they have. We payed cash for our 2 night stay and were given directions from barmaid on how to get to our site. When we got to our site we were taken back by all of the workers who were staying next to us. We went back... More

I really enjoyed my two nights here. It is very much a Mom-and-Pop outfit but in a good way, I enjoyed the down-home personal attention. You are in the Little Missouri Grasslands and have a nice, quiet view of the prairie. The Roosevelt N.P. south entrance is just ten minutes east. I was expecting the worst with the rooms but... More

We took horses here to ride and the facilities like other riders have mentioned are POOR, much like coming across a lonnnnggggg deserted sale barn (you also get charged per horse, per night). Pens have old manure or are overgrown with weeds. I was nearly hurt twice from slipping on boards that broke from being rotted. The dusty old bales... More

Other Medora hotels were booked so I started calling down the line of area hotels. What a lucky break for me! Middle of nowhere cowboy hotel with 3 cheeky old cowboys playing great old country music in a charming setting on a Sat night.... Friendly locals. Breakfast buffet left a lot to be desired but surprised they offered any at... More

We had little idea what to expect at Buffalo Gap Ranch. As we drove along the gravel road we had the feeling we were lost. But over the next hill was the ranch in the midst of a full rodeo. I am not a cowboy and my wife is not a cowgirl but the experience was like a ride on... More

I stayed here with my mother, two dogs and horse. The place was great! The people were wonderful... Except for the waitress's. the rooms were very clean and was a great place for myself, mom and dogs. Although I will never bring a horse again now will I recommend boarding a horse here. It was dark when I got there... More

Reserved a cabin. Got there and was not sure where to check in. Turns out it was in the bar. Very creepy to check in and have 20 men stare and listen as they explain which cabin was yours and how to get there. Get to the cabin and it reeked of wet dog. Seemed clean, but stunk. Maybe did... More

The cabin we booked was 100+ degrees inside and smelled like wet, rotting dog when we checked in. There are no signs as to where the "office" is--we walked up to the bar to ask and had to provide payment, get keys and fill out papers while standing at the bar next to a bunch of guys drinking beer. I... More
