Booked this room after reading the reviews and we all were very disappointed. Rooms were dark, filthy, and the bedding was extremely old and thin. The toilet overflowed each time it was flushed. We as well as well as everyone around us struggled with getting our doors unlocked. Flies everywhere in the room as well as the restaurant. The beds... More

Was more than pleasantly surprized with the rooms in the motel. I wasnt expecting much for a motel but the rooms were modern, spacious and very impressive. The bathrooms are ultra modern. Grest location for visiting the Badlands and the Medora musical

The motel complex is huge, all ground floor. Extremely well kept inside and all the grounds around the outside. The inside is nicely laid out and very up to date. Nice refrigerator and cable TV. Ice at the front desk. Very close to town, two minute walk to go out to eat. We stayed in room 432.

This hotel was included in a package we had booked for the Medora Musical. I expected an older, dated mom and pop type of hotel but it has recently been very nicely remodeled. The bathroom was great with a nice big shower with a seat. The bed was very comfortable and the decorating attractive. And it was spotlessly clean!!

The room wie got was nice Located in the back, facing to the mountains. Unfortunately the were so much flies in it in the first night. The second one was better. The room could be cleaner, especially the bottom. After the first night the housekeeping did a quick job!!!! We paid about 100 $ Off Season for a Room with... More

Our group of four needed two rooms while traveling from the East to MT. We picked Medora as a place to spend a night while on the road. I picked the Badlands Motel from the Internet and could not have been more pleased! The town is adorable even though we visited after all the summer activities closed down. The hotel... More

On Labor Day we drove 5 hours to Medora and thought we would have an hour plus to freshen up and unwind before heading to the Pitchfork Fondue. Unfortunately when we stepped into the lobby of the motel we found 20+ people waiting in line to check in. Luckily some of them were couples, but with only one desk clerk... More

Don't let the outside fool you. The rooms are recently remodeled in a crisp, clean, and very comfortable upscale decor. Good value and location. I can't imagine that the other hotels in Medora could be as nice.

Clean, confortable, WiFi, water is hot. We didn't stay but one night. However, for newley rentivated, the air conditioning unit made a lot of noise/rattling when we got in, not enough to disturb our sleep, and by morning it had stopped. The remodeling, while improving over how it was, feels more like it had achieved more in masking the age,... More

Rooms run on the small side, but were perfectly adequate. Shower was great. Pool is out side and pleasant. Kids could walk to pool, playground, and putt putt golf. Although staff booked us in a room with 2queens for 5 people, we were able to put a blow up mattress on the floor. It was a tight fit. We managed... More
