“Wyoming Hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2011

From the moment I called from my home to make a reservation to checking in & leaving I had the pleasure of meeting a very nice lady & gentleman. When I got there I was pleased to see that it was an older but very neat, clean, quiet & already cooled down room with a mini frige. If your looking for bells & whistles this is not the place for you. But if you just want a place to lay your head then you will not be dissapointed. I was even taken to the airport at 430 a.m. I will be keeping their name & number in case I need a place to stay again in Cody. Thank you to the both of you for your hospitality! Cheryl

Our stay here was supposed to be the highlight of our trip, but it was one of the worst hotel-wise. The room had a very heavy smoky odor, and when I asked the hotel manager about it (so we wouldn't be charged for smoking in the room), his reply was very accusatory and rude ("so what do you want me to do about it? For all I know it was you smoking in the room!"). It just went downhill from there. Cody is a gold mine for hotel owners, and they know it.

The rooms are well-worn, and after a long drive from South Dakota, we just put up with the loose towel rack, the lukewarm water for showers, and the poor parking situation. Although the price was cheaper than some other options, we wish we would have spent a bit more and stayed in a nicer place. In Cody, this would have been good advice to take.

Please know that as the new owners of the motel, all the rooms have been throughly cleaned, the rugs have been steam cleaned, tv's are being updated, new pillows -an overall spruce up. We are NON SMOKING motel. We do not take our guests for granted and only want to compliment Cody. Although our parking is tight, there is ample free parking on the street adjacent to the motel. All fixtures have been tested and tightened. Spending more, unfortunately doesn't gurarentee a nicer room. Most of our current guests are delighted at how spacious, comfortable and quiet the rooms are. Thank you again for your review and know that we are addressing your concerns.

We checked in late for a one-night-stay. Reception closed soon after our check in. Room was full of little flying, jumping bugs that allowed for little sleep that night. Our complaint the next morning to the receptionist made the 'owner' appear who met our complaints with arrogance, stoic silence, no apologies or good-will offers. Receptionist mentioned that they had the exterminater in this room the week before.

As the new owners of the motel, please accept our apology for your past stay. Although I'm unable to explain what was in your room, we do employ the services of Pest Control. I've yet to see anything, but after reading this review, I thought it best to be proactive rather than reactive. Since we have arrived, all of the rooms have been throughly cleaned. Thank you for your feedback.

The room was good but a little bit expensive for what offers. No internet, no microwave in the room.

As the new owners of the motel, we are now offering FREE WIFI
We do have a microwave for use in the office.
They were taken out of the rooms as a safety precaution.
In comparison to other motels/hotels in the area, we are catering to a budget friendly rate.
Thank you for your feedback.

I checked into this motel on Saturday, June 26, 2010. Although the parking spaces were numbered, I was not told to park in any particular space at check-in. When I went to check-out, my vehicle had been towed! Management had made no effort to contact me in my room to ask me to move the vehicle. There are less than 30 rooms at this place. All they had to do was call each occupant and ask if the vehicle was theirs and they didn't even do that. This cost me a towing charge of $180.00! If I didn't live in another state I would sue these fools in small claims court!

Called for directions on how to get to motel when we arrived in town. Front desk wasn't very specific (didn't seem to be too familiar with the town?) Asked a firefighter on the street, he turned us in the wrong direction. We finally made our way back and found the motel on our own.
Must admit, motel looked better than it had appeared on the internet. However, front desk staff was very confused. Put us in a room, then called us back to the desk, informing us they had made a mistake in our room and room charges....which had to be reprocessed on our credit card. We were actually in some other guest's reserved room, but they allowed us to stay. (Don't guess the other guest ever knew the difference).
There was no breakfast offered in lobby. Lots of pictures of hunted big game, but when asked , they said some of the animals had not been taken in that area. Why would you show pictures that weren't relative to the area?
We locked ourselves out of the room when we left the first time because we pushed the door knob button. Were told later by the staff, not to do that but just to pull the door shut. There had been no explanation at the front desk nor any signs posted to that effect in the room. Were we supposed to just know it??
Only one key was given to us at check-in, we had to ask for a second.
It just seemed we had to deal with a lot of confusion during our stay.
Good points: room was very clean, location was close to town but quiet.
If we ever go back, I would probably opt to stay at one of the Chain motels up the street. Maybe the staff would have it more "together".

As the new owners, the easiest way to locate us is we are on the Eastern end of Sheridan (opposite of BBHC), just past the pharmacy. Stay straight on Sheridan and you'll see our sign.
The lobby has been painted and remodeled. Our doors do automatically lock for safety reasons, but we have an extra key, should you need it. Happy to hear you enjoyed your room and had a nice nights sleep. Thank you!

After several days of motorcycling through Montana and Wyoming, we pulled in to the Budget Host and were pleasantly surprised at the moderate cost and the spacious room. The bed was comfortable, there was no highway noise, the staff was friendly, the room coffee was appreciated. It is a pleasant walk from the motel to the downtown district where food, entertainment, and shop abound. Of all the times I've stayed in Cody, this was the best value for the money. I give it a thumbs up.

The only negative was that parking was tight, even for two Harley-Davidsons.
