Constructed in 1892, the Historic Sheridan Inn gave adventurous travelers a taste of Eastern luxury in the West. Through the years, the Inn has remained a hub of activity, offering elegant New Year's Eve balls and the town's first electric lights. Buffalo Bill Cody sat on the front porch of the Inn auditioning acts to join the "Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show." The Inn is on the National Register of Historic Places. In October 2013, Bob and Dana Townsend became the newest owners of the Inn, bringing 21st century luxury to the 19th century building. The Inn is now open for overnight stays, banquets and tours. Lunch and dinner are also served in the Open Range Restaurant.

The food is really good here. It's a bit off the beaten track, so never that busy - always easy to get in.They offer a good variety - something lighter for lunch and then a really nice dinner menu. It's our favorite place to go out for dinner.

My husband remembered the Sheridan Inn from a summer job 53 years ago! We were happy to see that it has been restored (spendidly) and is open again. We enjoyed cocktails at the historic bar while I listened to his reminiscences. A happy afternoon.

We went there to eat. Food was great waitresses were also nice. I am vegetarian and they help me a lot. My dinner was very good. My wife also liked hers. I hope they they do not change their workmanship.

This is a nice hotel and has been kept really well with the original bar intact. We had a meal there and really enjoyed it. You can just go in and have a look around

We were coming to The Sheridan Inn for lunch on our Caravan Bus Tour. We were served in the dining room and listened to a lecture by a gentleman dressed in Buffalo Bill like attire. The history of the Inn and the locale were explained to us as well as the history of Buffalo Bill who called the Sheridan Inn... More

we love to stay here - a bit more pricey than the generic chains but such a nice change in a long road trip

My wife and I had dinner here while staying overnight in Sheridan. A couple of things could have made this a wonderful dining experience, but three starts is all I can give it during our experience. Their prices are not too high, but high enought that a salad should be included in the price. I know that isn't done a... More

Staying in the Black Elk room at The Sheridan Inn was a remarkable experience. From the friendly greeting and seamless check-in, to the substantial and delicious complementary homemade chocolate-chip cookies, to the beautifully adorned room and the delightful amenities, The Sheridan Inn maintains its classic historical feel while providing some equally welcome modern conveniences (such as an elevator). A comfortable... More

Excellent historic building with great photos of its links to the past. The food was really good, so well worth a try if you are in town. We went there twice.

We recently stayed for one night at this wonderful inn. Everything about it is to be recommended - the attention to detail in the renovations, the comfort and size of the beds, the location (very easy walk to downtown Sheridan) and the delicious, fresh cookies in the room on arrival. However, I would be hesitant to recommend the inn despite... More
