I have to admit that the property is very nice from the lobby to the rooms. The hotel bathrooms are some of the best I've ever seen in any property. The staff is another story from the experience I had with the front desk and the restaurant as well. I can't be very specific about the service issues due to... More

We spent a night in the off season and had a great time. The hotels is wonderful. The rate was 1/2 the price of what is charged in the summer. Not allot open in the winter but a few shops and 3 places to eat. Be sure to stay here next time you are in Medora ND.

We had a giftcard as we had to cancel a trip that was planned over the summer. We were doing a road trip and figured we should use it since we may not be in ND again. The hotel was very nice. Beautiful with lots of historical items and I enjoyed how they have a book about Theodore Roosevelt in... More

I really hope to come back to this hotel during the summertime when it's during a busier season... I came here for a work holiday party last weekend. The hotel was paid for, so I can't say many bad things about the stay. The hotel, on the inside and outside, looks very nice. So nice, rustic, western, old-fashioned (like old-looking,... More

It's a lovely, rustic-style hotel with a library and restaurant in the lobby. I stayed in the room where Teddy Roosevelt stayed, which was lovely with a good bed (a little soft for me), good towels and toiletries in the nice bathroom. Medora is a sweet, old fashioned, very small town. Everything in town is in walking distance.

We were given a gift card for Medora for a wedding present. We stayed in this hotel. The room was absolutely wonderful. The most comfortable bed. Excellent service. Great restaurant. Charming atmosphere.

The rooms are sealed units - you cannot open the windows. Air is continually blown into the room and you must trust that their equipment is thoroughly maintained. The noise of the air conditioner is constant, intrusive and never stops - it only gets louder periodically to heat or cool the room. The restaurant looked so inviting we were so... More

We had a business meeting last week and I did not know what to expect in Medora, ND. What a wonderful place to stay! Everything about this hotel was incredible. Since we stayed after the summer season was over, the hotel restaurant and bar were not open (I wish they would have been because they looked nice also). We at... More

This hotel is anything but 'rough' LOL. From the outside, you would never suspect how upscale the rooms (in the Tower) truly are. The walk in shower with the branding iron symbol tiles (check out the visitor center at TRNP for the background on the symbols), the super comfortable beds, the cleanliness, I could go on. Couldn't resist buying the... More
