We stayed at this hotel one night after visiting the national park. It was an excellent experience. We stayed in the older section of the hotel in a room which has been well remodeled and furnished.The common areas on the first floor include a fairly large library on Roosevelt and the area. Making reservations is not difficult, though as others... More

Medora has few options for overnight stays and I am happy we chose Rough Riders Hotel. Comfy beds, small refrigerator, close parking, great restaurant (bacon wrapped bison....so good!). I would stay here again.

My husband and I recently stayed 2 nights at Rough Riders Hotel. This is one of the most difficult reviews I have ever written. There is so much potential in this hotel, and it is positively the best in Medora; however, so many things were just "off" that I couldn't do better than average. First of all, you cannot speak...

Very nice, beautiful decor!! Yes, summer is expensive, but worth it. The Hotel & restaurant are open year round. All of the staff is great. Theodore's restaurant serves Outstanding food! Being downtown in the heart of the small town is very relaxing.

I stayed here a few years ago when they had first remodeled and was very impressed. I also enjoyed my stay this summer, but not quite so much--it was a nice hotel, but nothing that impressive. I understand Medora is a tourist town, but the price for a room is outrageous. I have stayed at hotels half the price that... More

We only made a reservation here because our first choice did not answer their phones. We are happy about this mistake as we would have been disappointed when we arrived and saw that we missed this gem. No complaints about this room. It is clean, as it should be, the bed is comfortable with all linens that can be laundered.... More

Walking distance to all things Medora. Rooms were modern and clean. We had a room overlooking the courtyard which got a little noisy at the conclusion of a banquet function one evening - but otherwise it was a great experience. Hotel property rivals typical Starwood and/or Marriott properties that we typically get in larger cities.

What a pleasant surprise! An immaculately clean, exceedingly quiet hotel in Medora, ND. The beds were great. The decor lovely. The shower could use a bit more water pressure, but that was absolutely the only slight negative about this hotel. I stay in lots of hotels and motels -- and this was one of the best.

Great place for a good nights rest. Large room, king bed, large walkin shower, clean comfortable bed. Never heard any noise till 7:30 in the morning. Would be nice to get a breakfast for the price you pay,and a pool but Medora is expensive because they can at least in the summer season.Friendly front desk service.

We loved our night in Medora!! The hotel is recently refurbished and the quality of the room is very high. Following other review, I was curious to check the shower...... Marvellous!! The Restaurant is very good, the crew is very kind and attentive.... The location of Medora is really nice... a Far West spot in the year 2000's... We missed... More
