“Best hotel I've stayed in!”
Reviewed February 16, 2009

My husband and I grew up in Cody and still live here. For Valentine's Day I wanted to plan something special - but local. We had not been in The Cody since it had been built, so I booked the fireplace jacuzzie suite. The Cody offered a Valentine's Special and when we arrived they had champagne, chocolates, and a rose waiting for us in the room. Our room was beautiful! I'm sure it was the most spacious hotel room we've ever stayed in. The jacuzzi tub was wonderful and we kept the fireplace going all night. The staff were AMAZING! They went above and beyond the call of duty. The entire hotel was very clean. The deluxe continental breakfast was fantastic - they had biscuits and gravy, sausage links, cereal, yogurt, fruit, waffles, bagels, juice, and a variety of danishs - I'm sure I'm missing something here... it was great! We've stayed in various hotels throughout Cody and this was by far the best one in town.

I visit Cody, Wy twice a month for business. I've stayed in other hotels in town before and will now permanently switch to The Cody. I haven't been made this comfortable in a hotel in quite some time. The lobby is a great place to relax at the end of the day, the room is four-star hotel style, the facilities and the comp breakfast are great, and the owner has an obvious feel for how to provide comfort in a "green" hotel environment. But, what stands out the most is the service which was unbelievable!! For example, I caught an unexpected snowstorm, yet was shuttled to my work destination by the staff with understanding and a smile. To my amazement, when I returned at the end of the day, my rental car had been cleaned of snow. These people really care about us and should be the first consideration when staying in Cody. I will bring family during the warm months as this hotel would make a great stay for vacation as well as business.

From the minute we walked into The Cody we felt very welcome. The decor was very tasteful and ALL the staff were polite and ready to 'chat'! We treated ourselves to a jacuzzi room as the rates were so reasonable. We stayed 3 days instead of our intended one! The best hotel I have stayed in for many years!!

The Cody Hotel, in Cody, WY, is a place we may not come back to - darn it! This is a trip we probably won't repeat, but, if we do, hope my room is still available at The Cody. What a pleasant experience. First, the design of the hotel is great, and the rooms are more than comfortable. Ours had a balcony (snow-covered at times) looking to the west.

The room size is good, although there is a pinch point between the foot of the bed and the desk if you use it. I did, as the Internet hook-uip was super, and, as we were snowed in for one day, the Internet connection was more than appreciated.

The staff was both pleasant and helpful, regardless of time of day or group on duty. Lots of good local suggestions, and also road information, as an early snow storm had stranded us. We spent more time in Cody than planned, but found the local folks just great, which added toi the pleasure of our stay.

During the tourist months, the Cody is a good place to stay and explore the Yellowstone Park area. One point, however: there is no bar and no restaurant at the Cody. It is strictly a hotel with pool, exercise room and breakfast room, so you will need to find other places for dinner. Not a problem, as they are there. Basic but good. Breakfast is included at The Cody, and it continues to be waffles and sausage, as well as fruit, breads and rolls - and plenty of hot coffee.

If you can schedule it while in Cody. do NOT miss the Buffalo Bill Museum. It is world-class. It is divided into five sections - Western Art, the Plains Indians, the natural history of the area, Buffalo Bill himself, and one of the finest - if not the finest - gun museum in America. The Winchester Collection was moved here, and the display of historical weapons is not to be believed. Due to be snowed in, I spent two days at the Museum, and was not finished. I found the Plains Indians display particularly moving, as I learned, for the first time, just what the Indians lost through war and resettlement. The display is not political, just meaningful.

Bottom line: The Cody Hotel is a great place which we would happily revisit. It's a class act. And Cody is a great litle town, filled with nice people.

This is new hotel. Building is beautifully decorated and located between Buffalo Bill visitor center and Rodeo Stampede. Hotel is also located on Buffalo Bill highway which is a very scenic way to go to Yellowstone Park. Rooms and Linens were very clean and of excellent quality. Staff was gracious (as was everyone I encountered in the town of Cody). We just passed through Cody on our way to Yellowstone and Montana, but I would consider just spending my time solely at this location for a relaxing get away next time. Very fond memories here.

We celebrated our 22nd anniversary while staying at The Cody on our vacation. It was wonderful! Janet, manager, and her staff were so very nice. After staying in a rustic cabin in the Grand Tetons for 4 days it was a welcome retreat. Luxurious, comfortable and plenty of amenities. Be sure to ask for a balcony room that faces the mountains. We definitely recommend The Cody & look forward to our next stay.

My wife and I, and our seven-month-old twin boys, stayed here for just under a week. It is a splendid place - attractive, comfortable rooms, helpful and courteous staff, an excellent breakfast (included in the room rate), a great swimmking pool and hot tub - and all at a very reasonable price. Easily the most impressive place to stay in Cody - highly recommended.
