Stayed as part of a package deal for the Medora Musical and pitchfork steak dinner. Room was part of a large group of buildings and although clean and functional it was small. For overnight it suited our purposes but a longer stay would have been unpleasant after several days.

The Bunkhouse gets a very unfair bad rap. This facility is immaculately clean, spartan but adequate, reasonably price, comfortable and a good value. First and foremost: If you are looking for high end or resort accommodations you will need to skip Medora for neither at the Bunkhouse nor anyplace else is there going to be "resort quality".

After five days at a luxury resort in Wisconsin, we booked a room based on a notion of thrift. What a mistake! Rooms are tiny and downright depressing, constructed of vinyl-covered boards with a slightly stained drop ceiling. The entire motel has a prison camp atmosphere, unrelieved by plantings or architectural interest. The sheets had a truly gross bit of... More

Terrible experience. Only reason to stay here is because of the lack of rooms during prime tourist season. Small room, small hard beds, everything is from the 70's and could not even shut the bathroom door all the way as it sticks. Air conditioner is basically right over a bed so either be too warm or get sick from the... More

While driving down the road to Medora we attempted to research hotels on our IPhone, but there was no coverage. When we got to Medora was pulled into the Badlands Hotel because it looked rather Western and fun, due to a miniature golf area. When we asked for a room we were told that they were filled at that location... More

The Bunkhouse Motel in Medora is like going back in time to 1950. The room is small, no ice machine except at the office, no coffee pot or frig or microwave, just a spartan room, with aged decor and your basic bathroom, and bed. If you are out of the room most of the time and only want a place... More

The rooms are tiny and very old, but very, very clean with comfortable beds. Our bathroom door stuck badly, and I wasn't strong enough to shut it tightly, but we had no other problems. I would definitely stay there again as I was pleasantly surprised at the accommodations considering the age of the property.

We've been to Medora many times and typically stay at the Badlands Motel because of its location, but this last visit we tried the Bunkhouse due to the lower pricing. Although it's a bit out of the way, it's certainly within walking distance of town. It's also very clean. The rooms are small and not very well sound-proofed but the... More

It is a dreary exterior and very tight in the room. Our bed was poor. AC was loud. The only good thing I can say is that it was clean. We bundled our hotel-pitchfork fondue supper-medora musica tickets. We regretted not ante-ing up for better accommodations. Will never stay here again.

It was about what we expected. However, the smell was extra. My wife is very sensitive to smells and she had to hold her nose for the first hour. I'm not sure what it was. The room was small and expensive, even as the cheapest place in town. All motels in this region are expensive. I think it is due... More
