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

We spent 3 nights at this establishment the first week in October. We weren't able to get earlier reservations, but the up side was that rates were lower. Our room was very comfortable with plenty of space. The shower was fine ( no bathtub) and the sink/commode area had plenty of room. THere also was plenty of drawer space, a... More

Made reservations well in advance with selection based mainly on restaurant, wine list and history. Looked forward to one evening in nice setting. Drove out of way to spend one night. When arrived and after checking in the restaurant was closed for private event including the lounge and no room service. The desk clerk was not apologetic or even concerned.... More

We spent one night here recently on our trip to see Theodore Roosevelt National Park. It was a very nice hotel - in fact, one of the nicest in which we have stayed. I am not a lover of showers, but it was a very nice one. We stayed in the historic wing - the rooms are upstairs, and if... More

We stayed here one night and were pleased with the stay. We had a room in the historic wing and it was a nice quaint setting. The room was not large but was nice. The biggest thing was an enormous shower that was very nice. The staff seems to be on point but not overly energetic. It was very off... More

What a beautiful place! The town is surrounded by Theodore Roosevelt National Park! The rooms were clean! Always important. Every employee we spoke to was pleasant and helpful and gave us their undivided attention! We arrived in town late in the day with reservations that didn't work out. This place was recommended by a waitress and we were so grateful.
