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

We were beyond impressed with this hotel!! My gf and I travel frequently, and this was one of the nicest hotels we have ever stayed in. You cannot beat the price (we went during the off-season, March, and as we were some of the only guests, we felt like we had the place to ourselves). The hotel was spotless, the... More

Clean room. Very modern bathroom with curtainless, tiled shower (very sleek). Quiet building. Teddybear available for purchase in room.... Damn them. Flat screen. Fridge. Wonderful international staff. Nice city. No continental breakfast, no pool, very basic "fitness center", but super-fast wi-fi. Would like to stay for a more lengthy visit.

It was my birthday and I had to travel to Dickinson. So I went early, drove to Medora and checked into the Rough Riders Hotel. The front desk directed me to a lovely loop drive in the National Park, Afterwards I had a wonderful dinner in the dining room - the wait staff even brought desert and sang happy birthday!... More

Very nice hotel! We stayed one night in the historic section. Room was clean & decorated nicely. Hotel staff was friendly & helpful. I would definitely stay here again. The hotel restaurant is also very good. Thumbs Up!

When making our reservation I had a great deal of trepidation about this property. But, given the choices available in Medora I hesitantly made the reservation. When we arrived at the hotel and drove into the parking lot I was REALLY not sure about the decision to stay there. The outside of the hotel has been preserved as it was... More

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
