I stayed here for two nights as a base to explore Theodore Roosevelt National Park (both the south and north units). Both sections of the park are absolutely amazing and shouldn't be missed. The entrance to the park's south unit is a few hundred yards from the Rough Riders Hotel's front door, so it couldn't be more convenient. The hotel... More

Surprising luxury in a tiny Western town! Mid May restaurant was closed (disappointing) & breakfast was buffet at the Chuckwagon, a 2 minute walk. Rooms are 3-4 star, excellent in their class. Comfy bed, quiet, great shower. Loved 5 minute access to TRoosevlt NP & the fact that you can walk to any business in town. Great base for exploring... More

We were shocked by the beauty of this Hotel in the middle of rough country. Very clean rooms, very nice staff, beautiful library and facilities. Nice art. We stayed in the newer tower (3 stories) so not sure about the older part but the lobby is very well done.

The room quality is in the tower rooms are almost the same as a hampton inn or holiday inn express. Service at the front desk was average and the lobby did have a good collection of books on display. The clerk was nice enough to let me look at a couple of the historic rooms which you have to walk... More

On a recent cross country trip, we consulted Trip Advisor and saw the great reviews for this hotel, so decided to stay here. Reviews were accurate, and the hotel was a great stop for us. Hotel was very charming and really embraced the Teddy Roosevelt theme (couldn't resist and had to purchase the teddy bear and book that were displayed... More

My husband and I were on a road trip and decided to go to Teddy Roosevelt National Park in Medora, ND. What a great decision! I found the hotel on Trip Advisor and because it was rated #1 and there was not a lot of hotels in the area, we called to make a reservation for the next night. The... More

Checking in was pleasant in the beautiful lobby with grand fireplace and extensive bookshelves. But it was the darling little Teddy bear perched on a chair in the room that made me smile. Great touch along with all the classic western motif and Roosevelt artifacts. The hotel was exceptionally clean. Sleep quality was very good and the beautiful custom tiled... More

Front desk was friendly and welcoming. Beautiful historic lobby. We stayed in the newer part of the hotel, but it still kept it's rustic charm. Cute teddy bear on bed. Large bathroom with beautiful stone shower. Would definitely stay here again.

Off season stay for our visit to Theodore Roosevelt National Park. Loved, loved, loved the Park. The hotel was nice. Stayed in Historic 501. For the price is was very good. Everything in town was shut down. Continental breakfast was just barely adequate. Main reason no 5 stars here. No full maid service on Sundays, either. We would stay again... More
