We were visiting the Theodore Roosevelt National Park at the end of a long day of driving, so drove the short distance to Medora hoping to find someplace suitable to stay. The Rough Riders Hotel was the nicest place in town and at this particular time oif year, also the cheapest. The rooms are small, but bear in mind, this is a renovation of a very old establishment. Everything has been beautifully restored--absolutely top of the line. There is original local art in all the rooms and plaques describing local history everywhere. Theodore's Dining Room in the hotel is an evening fine dining experience, with prices to match, so we went elsewhere, since we weren't all that hungry. We did have breakfast there the next morning, however, and it was excellent--and not too spendy. If we travel this way again, we will plan to stay here.
