These rooms were amazing. The beds were so comfortable. After being on the road for 10 days in a different motel night after night this became a trip highlight. We were not expecting this at all. The location is great and Medora is such a cute place. If I ever go back I am staying here again. My dad and...

We visited in off season and the 114 room motel was sparsely occupied. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the room was great and quite comfortable even for three adults. If you plan a summer trip to Medora, make reservations in advance as the local nightly performances keep the town full. Medora is small and with a western theme...

Newly remodeled rooms added to the appeal if the motel. Very clean and a extremely comfortable nights sleep. However, mid-September stay was interesting. Arriving after 5 on a Sunday called for us to check-in at another hotel. Plus no one was in the motels office. By the second day all computers, along with the ATM machine were removed from the...

This hotel was very nicely furnished and very clean. I understand is was remodeled last year. Hotel was quiet and the staff were very nice. Hotel was within walking distance of restaurants and shops. I was very pleased with the room and would definitely stay here again. Theodore Roosevelt National Park was gorgeous.

Wit the renovation, this is now a very good motel and there's no need to spend more money to be comfortable while visiting Medora and the Roosevelt Nat'l Park (which is less than a mile away). Beds were comfortable and the decor pleasing. Easy access as you can park right in front of your room. Dining options are limited in...

Our room was great - looked to have been renovated, we were in the first rooms before the office. Very Clean, comfy beds, close and walkable distance to town. We loved the ability to drive up to room and keep car in front. I left my charger there and hotel was very nice and will mail back to me COD.

We are from Florida, in our mid sixties, travel extensively by car and I am a retired travel agent. We stayed here one night to visit Theadore Roosevelt National Park. The hotel is older but has been nicely redone. The room was pretty spacious with nice decor. You can park your car at the door. The room was clean and...

The motel is next to the train tracks. The trains honk multiple times during the night since there is a crossing nearby. We had the room closest to the tracks and it was horrible. I expect more for $150,- a night.

Newly remodeled and they did a very nice job of it. Not fancy but very very clean and friendly. Easy walk to rest of town. Quiet location. Good views. Lots of parking. Would stay here again and again.
