We were on our way to the Yellowstone National Park and needed to stop to sleep. We drove for 8 hours and ready for some rest. We stopped at this hotel because it was affordable for $49/night. We got a king bed and it was ok. It wasn't super comfy but since we were tired, we couldn't really tell and... More

Loved this motel the owners and the location was excellent. Great value and pool if you want to relax. We walked to the rodeo and cassies only a few minutes walk. We walked down town but for some it could be a long walk 3 miles (we noticed not too many people walk in the USA). Lovely large room with... More

We got a cabin in the newly renevated area on the end which was excellent - great size bedroom with flatscreen TV and large bed. We asked for a fridge and got this in the room, no problem - separate hall and bathroom. The area is an excellent place to stay in Cody if you want to experience the rodeo... More

We stayed here based on Trip advisor reviews. If you are budget minded this is great, but don't write picky reviews and cut this family run hotel down. They give you a clean bed and bath. They are a very friendly family. We checked in September, so our rate was $65. I closed my eyes and slept good and left... More

Cody can be quite expensive. This motel's room were quite reasonably priced in comparison. The rooms were nicely decorated western style and very clean. There were pegs for hanging clothes but not hangers, so you might want to bring a few of your own. If you are planning on visiting the Buffalo Bill Museum, it is just a 5 minute... More

A very quaint motel with newly updated rooms. Lots of room with vaulted ceilings. Very reasonably priced for a location so close to the park (Yellowstone). Fantastic view from our room/front deck. Watched the sunset over the mountians while sipping a cold one. Met the people of either side of us who were also loving the property. No, not the... More
