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.

Quiet, clean and good-sized room. Complimentary breakfast was good. Had a meeting here. Service in the meeting room was very good. Staff worked hard to make our meeting go well. Food... More

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

The hotel was just like a normal hotel but definitely the nicest in town. Maybe we missed the historical portion. Decent price as we traveled in the off season. Basic continental breakfast was included, which is good because nothing in town was open. Try traveling in the summer with more things in town are open.

Very nice place to stay, rooms are very clean & comfortable, staff was great. Price might seem a little high, but compared to pricing and quality at some of the other hotels it's well worth the stay. The restaurant was very good, it's a little high end but worth it as well, if I had any complaint would be checking... More

Admittedly, I only chose this hotel because Theodore Roosevelt stayed here but I loved it even without that fact. There's an awesome library in the main lobby. We ate dinner at their restaurant, Theodore's and the rooms were nicely remodeled and updated. The hotel is right in the middle of town, you can walk to everything from here, except to... More

We stayed in the suite & it was beautiful. We felt so pampered while staying here. Very tastefully decorated. The large walk in tile shower with multiple jets was amazing. Balcony across living & bedroom areas. Our room had a very interesting coffee table book about Theodore Roosevelt that was available for purchase. As was a cute "Teddy Bear." It... More

My stay at the Rough Riders Hotel the past four days was very nice. I was there as part of a retreat for the university where I teach. The staff did a great job of making sure we were well cared for at every turn. The food was plentiful and fabulous. The room was spacious and clean. My wife and... More

We stayed here in off-season (mid-October) after visiting Theodore Roosevelt National Park. This hotel has a Teddy Roosevelt theme. It's a rustic-looking hotel with new rooms, lobby and dining room. It's unique in decor: rooms with lovely faux-tooled leather headboards, "velvet" upholstered chairs, wonderful plumbing & lighting fixtures as well as interesting decorative pictures and wall colors. The rustic-tiled shower... More
