We had stayed in Medora last in 2008. Holy Moly has this hotel changed in that time! It is a 5 start hotel now. LOVED IT. Our room was beautiful, and the stand up shower is beyond awesome! I could not get over the transformation of the hotel since we had last seen it. Yet they kept the old west... More

We stayed for just one night, July 20, 2014 and had a "historical" room...Very comfortable king sized bed...wonderful bath...shower was awesome! Clean, quiet...the A/C worked great as it was into the 90's. Would highly recommend this hotel and will definitely be back!

This hotel offers excellent service, comfortable rooms, and a very good restaurant. The decor in the lobby and throughput the hotel is very pristine reflecting the Roosevelt era. The staff is pleasant, helpful, and accommodating.

We stayed in a suite that Teddy stayed in. The room was great. The only drawback is e were on the second floor and there is no one to help with the luggage. Perfectly located to visit the National Park.

This is a very nice hotel. We have visited Medora many times - always camping. This was our first stay in a hotel. Didn't miss the camping one bit! We really liked this hotel except the walls could be better insulated. Both nights we were kept awake past midnight by the TV in the next room. Some white noise would... More

Nice hotel in Medora. Very close to Theodore Roosevelt National Park. Town of Medora is a bit of a tourist trap. Room in historic section of hotel was lovely, comfortable, quiet. TR Teddy Bear on bed was a cute touch. Lots of TR info to be found in hotel. Nice porch for sitting outside in evenings. Hotel restaurant has reasonable... More

Hotel attached to the original hotel. The two story lobby has been tastefully furnished at about 1905 time period, with tin ceiling and lovely oak panelling. The rooms were area furnished, with a western motif without being cheesy. The bed and bedding were very comfortable and gave an excellent night's sleep. There were two chairs and ottoman, coffee pot and... More

…or maybe the only hotel ! Friendly staff - but could be more efficient. Room was wonderful and big shower was great. Restaurant was what you would expect, except for trouble I had with an evening meal - so missed the Medora show. Really disappointment, but management did make things right. The NP is not one of my favorites, and... More

Loved the lobby with fireplace and Teddy Roosevelt library. Rooms are very quiet, comfortable and spotlessly clean. Well worth the price of the $189 + tax per night. Hotel is in the heart of Medora within walking distance to shops, restaurants and parks. Best hotel in Medora! Pleasantly surprised how wonderful a time our family had in medora! Loved it!!... More

The hotel itself is probably the nicest in town. We were in town for a wedding and the reception was held here, so we booked a room here. Explanation of the "Historic" rooms should have been explained better. The "Historic" rooms are very, very small. Basically enough room for a bed. You have to shimmy your way around the bed... More
