We unexpectedly had to spend a night in Billings. While driving around downtown looking for a hotel, we saw the Dude Rancher Lodge. The exterior drew us in. The name intrigued us. After stepping foot into the lobby, we knew we HAD to stay here! What a pleasant surprise. The staff was friendly & accomodating. The decor was like stepping into the past...like a dude ranch lodge in downtown! :) The rate was affordable. Accomodations were clean & a throwback to simpler times. Didn't get a chance to dine in the cafe but it looked cool. The location was great because we could explore downtown on foot, eat dinner & have drinks & walk back to the lodge. No vehicle needed! Highly recommend staying here if you're looking for unique accomodations.
