          The second floor ceiling is vaulted and gives a sense of excess space which is a relief from normal motel/hotel rooms.

          The chairs in the room need to be re-upholstered.

        • Older travelers

          The hotel was fine, but the city was dead, the was no shopping , there was nothing happening, even walking was not pleasent this is a big city it should be more lively than that, that was why we booked in the down-town area.

          The staff was friendly and the room was clean. It was quiet at night couldn't hear other peoples t.v.s, etc. It wasn't noisy til morning when people were up and leaving, no more noisy than other hotels.

          The bed was hard, need new beds.

          The Dude Rancher Lodge is an Icon in downtown Billings. It has a rich history and a strong visual character.

          It could stand a few upgrades and a little more attention to detail.

          The bed was the worst bed we've ever slept in! Neither of us slept more than an hour because the beds were so horrible. Other than the beds, the hotel was nice. We were traveling back home from Seattle to Bismarck, and we were looking forward to a good night's sleep - that didn't happen and made it a exhausting day for travel the following day. We would not come back unless the beds were replaced. It felt like we were sleeping on a box spring - not good!!!

          The staff was more than great. After we were unable to get to the hotel we were supposed to stay at due to roads closed, we called to see if we could move our reservation up a day. Because we are disabled, we also needed a first floor room. The hotel called us a few minutes later and told us to come on in. It's a nice old hotel that's been re-done in the past few years. The rooms are rather small (typical of older hotels) but it's more than adequate, the wifi works well, the restaurant has really good country cooking, and it's got a nice lobby area.

        • Family with children

          Staff was friendly and helpful before you even have a question.

          WiFi network needs major work and rooms have rustic look by need repair to furniture and amenities.

          They really need to update their room. I mean who has a yellow and orange bathroom. And what is with the leather on the bed headboard. Another couple traveling with us said their bathroom was red.

          The location

          The rooms were clean but smelled stale. The air condition unit was so loud it was hard to fall asleep and made the room sticky like a swamp cooler.

        • Group of friends
          4.2

          It's a rustic type of motel and that was nice. I know they are trying to remodel but... They should put people that don't have animals in pet rooms & more!

          1) Our room was so full of white and black pet hair that it was even sticking out of the ice bucket, nasty! Also 1 & 2" spots on the carpet that I'm sure they was piss stains, nasty! 2) The air conditioner hardly worked! We had it as low as it would go and it barely blew out any air at all! 3) Couldn't get the coffee pot to work, waited over a half hour for it, but when we came back that evening we had coffee made, strange! 4) The TV quit working for an evening and 2 workers was up and trying to fix it at no avail, but the next morning it worked finally - they was blaming Bresnan! Totally NOT worth the $307 I paid for three nights! $50 bucks a night would have been way to much! Suggestion: They need to close down a few months and get all of the remodeling done and then it would probably be a nice hotel!

          - Friendly staff organized for us another hotel and paid for the extra cost, when the found out that they had booked us in a wrong day.

          The organisation does not seem to be well organized as we even called at that evening and introduced our arrival. The "pickup service" they provide is in reality that they pay for 2 persons the taxi from the airport to the hotel. ... a limited service, when you arrive with 4 people ..... We paid once again the amount the paid to the taxi company .... 3 days later at the end of our yellowstone trip we staid in the hotel, then again, we got first a room with just one bed instead of one with two, as initially ordered. Finally they sorted that out again. Strange, because the other night we addressed the second stay already ..... The room needs major cleaning and overhaul, we even found a half smoked cigarette in the corner of our non smoking room ...... carpets, walls everything is sort of worn and not well kept. Even in relation to the relativily low price, a better overall cleaning could be easily achieved ....

          The non-smoking room stank of old cigarettes. The AC was almost completely dysfunctional. The internet connection was poor. The room was old and poorly maintained. The bathroom off the lobby door did not lock which I found out to my great embarrassment. Really, this place is pathetic.

          Very nice room with king-size bed for a great price. About ten minutes from the Billings airport. Very friendly and helpful front desk staff.
