I really hope to come back to this hotel during the summertime when it's during a busier season...
I came here for a work holiday party last weekend. The hotel was paid for, so I can't say many bad things about the stay.
The hotel, on the inside and outside, looks very nice. So nice, rustic, western, old-fashioned (like old-looking, but nice). I love all the history tidbits scattered throughout the hotel, the library, the town itself is beautiful even during the off-season.
I guess when I arrived at our hotel room I was hoping for something...I dunno. It seemed a little lacking. Like the rest of the hotel had this gorgeous rustic-looking feel about it. Then you get to the room, and it's just....meh. And no bathtub, only a shower? Not cool in my book. Especially on a cold winter night, and no hot tub? I was really wanting to be over at the American Inn that night.
I'm sure these amenities don't matter in the hot summer, when business is really going. This is why I'd like to come back here and stay during the summer, rather than the offseason.
I'm sure this explains why there was very little breakfast. We had a "continental" breakfast. Want to know what that consists of here, in Medora, at a nice expensive hotel? Coffee, juice, muffins, and fruit. I don't care whether it's January or July, you do NOT do that to your guests at a nice hotel like this.
