I absolutely love old historic hotels and have stayed in a few. This one ranks second on my list of hotels older than 100. If you want all the fancy stuff, go elsewhere. If you enjoy quaint and friendly, stay at Hotel Labonte. The patrons at the bar gave us a great recommendation for supper! The lobby is comfortable and eclectic. Our room was large and clean. One thing that I wish was different is that instead of covering the floors in carpet squares, refinish the hardwood floors. You can hear the floors creek under the carpet which is a soothing sound of yesteryear. Love this jewel.

This is an old historic hotel but it has not been renovated. If you like to stay in a hotel were maybe Buffalo Bill stayed then this is you place. If not then seek accommodations elsewhere. On the plus side it has a pretty good restaurant as far as the food and the service goes.

The bar service is friendly. The rooms are clean, bright and very comfortable while reminding you that you are in a hotel nearly 100 years old.

The restaurant had recently re-opened. The tomato bisque soup and home-made pie were fantastic. Portions are generous.

Need more places to hang out reading or visting in the beautiful old lobby and courtyard.

We found this hotel online while traveling to Montana to hunt. The hotel is connected to a nice bar and billiard room. The lobby was absolutely beautiful! Wood beam ceilings, vintage decor with western theme. Hotel built in 1913 and I could literally FEEL the history of this place! Our room was clean and roomy. Bathroom decor older but very clean with plenty of hot water and shower pressure. Our room had a small table covered with a linen cloth which was a nice touch, along with a microwave and fridge. We paid slightly LESS for this room than the hotels in the same town were asking, yet got such a better deal. This hotel was unique and held charm and a bit of history. Lots of woodwork in the lobby. How many hotels do you know of that when you walk out of the lobby and into another room you are met with a billiards room? Yep, we had shuffle board, big screen (huge) TV on the wall, pool table, etc We had the billiard room to ourselves. We don't think that anyone else was staying in the hotel except us. We saw no other guests and heard no foot traffic. There was truly a feeling of a calm and peace in this hotel! I had the best nights sleep I had in the previous 10 days of travel. Upon checkout met the father-in-law of the owner. Very nice, friendly man. Offered a little history about the hotel which we found fascinating. If you enjoy unique hotels, unlike the many chain-hotels, with personality and charm as well as clean comfortable roomy-rooms, you won't be disappointed.

This place was terrible! The hallway was dirty and had a terrible smell, I hoped the room would be better--but it wasn't. It was a tiny room with 2 queen size beds crammed in it. The room was dirty and smelled. I tried to open the window to get some fresh air and the screen fell off! The bedspread had a big whole in it and the bathroom was awful. I didn't stay. The only good part of the expierence was the fact that they gave me my money back with no argument!

We are not trying to be mean and We are not exaggerating. Honestly, this is our experience this evening.

The main lobby is really quaint and speaks of yesteryear and the early 1900's but that is where the appeal ends.

Upon approaching the un-manned front desk, we found a sign directing us to go to the "lounge" to register. The lounge is really a dive bar just beyond an open area with pool tables, replete with music that is way too loud, drunken patrons that use the f word loosely and loudly and a young bartender who was slightly put off at the notion that we actually wanted the room we reserved.

She handed me a torn registration form to fill out at the bar which, included credit card info. I filled out the form as bar patrons observed me filling out personal data. (I hid it best I could). She ran the card and handed me a key, turned away and went back to bar tending without any courtesy whatsoever.

Then, we get to the room. TINY. I mean smaller than small. And please, if you don't believe this post or think I have some grudge to fill or something, see the bathroom pictures below.

I'm laying on the bed in the room as I write this, the loud music from the bar below is reverberating through the floor. Pink Floyd's "Money" is currently playing on the juke box.

We will not stay here again. Ever.

This a nice family owned historic hotel. I really enjoyed the tasteful art work and classic western theme with modern flair. Along with the antique furnishings, wood and tile work in the lobby, the lounge provides a lively destination for the weary traveler. They remodeled the rooms with modern bathroom fixtures, tile work and good attention to details like quality towels, a comfortable bed, and soft linens. Unfortunately, their computer system had crashed and they had no record of our reservation. Nevertheless, the staff in the lounge was professional and efficient in getting us settled in. The outside patio is a nice place to hang out for a Moscow Mule or glass of wine and they draw in some friendly clients quick to offer some Wyoming hospitality. We had a lovely breakfast at the Depot, just a block away. This a great historic hotel in a great location in downtown Douglas and I would stay here again.

I know that this is a historic hotel & is currently undergoing rennovations, but this doesn't compensate for how dirty it is. The carpets in the corriders are full of stains & there is a bad smell everywhere. The room itself is large as well as the bathroom, but there are stains on the bed sheets, cover, carpet & towels (basically everywhere) this in addition to moulds in both the sink & the shower.
I can't comment on the restaurant and the bar as I only spent one night & was very eager to get out of this hotel!!!!

Still the quaint, turn of the century hotel. Lots of renovations and improvements made since our last trip through WY almost 2 years ago. Bar/lounge still has the western motif and had great live music - country western singer/guitar player the night we were there...a very relaxing evening spent in the lounge. The event room was a work in progress and is now in use with doors that open out to a courtyard patio. It was too cold when we stayed but I'd love to use it sometime. The restaurant has opened and they serve delicious food with generous servings and reasonable prices - a wonderful addition to the hotel. This is a fun place to visit that isn't 'just like every other hotel'.

Hotel is being nicely updated but it is a work in progress. Rooms have an old-fashioned charm. Staff is very accomodating to young children. We often stay in places with a pool (higher price tag too), and the kids didn't even miss it here-they were too busy exploring the hotel asking questions about the place which staff took time to answer. Shower is awesome and the linens clean and fresh. It's not modern, but we give it a thumbs up if you're looking for something that goes beyond a common "cookie cutter" hotel.
