Stayed here prior to 2 week motorcyle trip; the irony of the Dude Rancher is that it's in the middle of the town, surrounded by corporate buildings and parking lots. Very funky that way; apparently, the ranch moved on. Convenient to town and walking distance to restaurants, fast food, supermarkets. Rooms have dated character - pine, orange textiles and cattle brand design on carpets. However, carpets are so stained and filthy that you want to wipe your feet when you leave the room. I am not a fastidious traveller, but this creeped me out... ! Certainly not 5-star; at least not my room.
Nice, rustic lobby area with fireplace, slate floors, couches and morning coffee; restaurant next door is fine for breakfast. Pleasant people at front desk; unhurried.
But if you're looking for a ranch... dude... keep looking.
