I go to the ranch every year and this place is the best. If you need something they will figure it out and do anything to acomidate you. Only thing bad is I wish I could make it out there more often!!!

The rooms are very dated, dark and gloomy. Many people including ourselves were having a hard time getting the keys to work in the rooms. Our toilet needed to be plunged after each use. The linen was very thinice and old. We ate at the restaurant and it was pretty good.

In terms of dog friendly hotels, this was really the only choice my boyfriend and I had when visiting Medora. Once you exit off of I-94 there can be no wrong turns! You go left to go back into town or you go right to enter Buffalo Gap territory. From the outside it looks long in the tooth but the... More

First impression were not favorable and as our overnight stay unfolded we could not wait for morning to move on. Our room #5 was not clean, but no complaints on the condition of the bathroom. The "writing" deck had the fridge on it and the wood on the one side was rotten causing it to lean noticeably.After giving the coffee... More

We came here for a wedding, and it was a nightmare. We should have known right away when the front desk demanded we paid in front before seeing the place. Cabin was dirty, had mud on the floor, hair in the sheets, dirty washcloth on the bathroom. Hot water leaked and didn't even work until we had to troubleshoot and... More

We attended a wedding in North Dakota and the Bride and Groom choose Buffalo Gap as their rehearsal and reception destination. I have nothing but great things to say about this place. The room was clean and had everything we needed. The food was outstanding! We had the breakfast buffet, lunch and dinner at the ranch. The staff was so... More

They don't issue confirmations and they never return phone calls, you have to keep calling until they answer. When we got there a very rude woman yelled at us and treated us like we were stupid for asking questions. I asked if the room was smoke free (the bar most definitely is not!) and got a non committal answer, so... More

My husband and I travel constantly for work. The accommodations at the Guest Ranch were awesome. The rooms are very large and have two queen sized beds and a set of bunk beds with plenty of room to walk around still. Our dog just loves the ranch. There is plenty of open space for him. Ollie and Cecil are the... More

We're from The Netherlands and every year we make a trip to the US with our dogs. Searching the internet last year for a good location to stay, I stumbled onto the Buffalo Gap Ranch. It just looked perfect for us. A remote area, dog friendly and back to basic. That's how we like it. We liked it so much,... More
