The history in this hotel is awesome. Worth the visit just to see the inside of the hotel. Didn't stay as overnight guests, just had light dinner. Bison burger was too spicy, like the flavor of meat was being covered up. Worse meal we had on our 3 week trip!

We didn't stay at the hotel however we stopped in to look at the lobby ( encouraged by the owners!). It's beautifully restored and has a lot of memorabilia of it's past. So many famous people stayed here - Butch Cassidy and the Hole in the Wall Gang, Herbert Hoover, Teddy Roosevelt, Buffalo Bill Cody, Calamity Jane and even Ernest Hemmingway. One thing I noticed and loved is that above every door entrance there is a hand painted mural of native wildflowers and it's really unique. The manage talked with us and let us know the Saloon in the hotel was open for dinner and we decided to eat there (great experience). We walked the downtown area and it's a really nice place. A lot of care has gone into preservation and design. Absolutely one of my favorite stops on our 9 state trip.

We went out west to experience the old west if we could find it. Boy did we find it. What a great place and great people. It is historic, clean, you will go back in time- except you will have modern necessities. The food was good and drinks were better. The owner played guitar and performed both nights we were there and it added to the overall experience. I highly recommend staying here and enjoying what it has to offer. You will not regret it. Be warned it has second floor rooms and there is no elevator, but now I think of it I am sure they would help you with your luggage if you asked them too.

This was our first stop in our Historic Hotel trip through Wyoming and what a treat. The building is fill with antiques and if you close your eyes while you're sitting in the lobby you almost can hear the jingle of spurs as the travelers wondered in looking for a room. If you think you're going sneak in late at night think again as the floors squeak and creaked with every step which just added to the ambiance. Our room was clean and comfortable although for these old eyes a little to dimly lit. We had everything we needed in the room and slept very comfortably in the bed. A fun nights stay!!

This is a must see! If you are interested or even curious about what life was like in the 1880's west check this place out. My husband and I enjoyed looking through the hotel and then the saloon looking at old historic pictures that hung on the walls as well as looking for the bullet holes still there when they had shoot outs. The antique furniture looks like it could be original. A neat place!
