    Comfortable and quirky

    Location was great for us. Downtown Billings isn’t very big, so we could walk everywhere we wanted to go. Staff were friendly and efficient. The bathroom in our room looked pretty freshly updated.

    The sheets on our bed were really old, making them look somewhat unwashed. The bathroom wasn’t as clean as I expected.

    Mediocre

    The only redeeming quality was that it was walking distance to some restaurants.

    This place was basically a tourist trap. It looks quaint and Western online, but the rooms are filthy and dilapidated (the carpets look like thy have never been cleaned). The check in area smelled like cigarettes, and the fridge and microwave in the room were also dirty. The sheets were of bad quality and were pilling. Definitely wouldn't stay here again.

    Great for price

    Super affordable and actually clean. The bed was really comfy too.

    Wish there were women at the front desk and breakfast served earlier

    Bait and Switch

    Room was fine for the short time we spent there and the adjoining café had decent food

    When we arrived at 1am at the airport the four of us had to wait over 45 minutes for the 24hr free shuttle - which is not a shuttle, but a local taxi. When we arrived at the Lodge we were informed that the Lodge only covered $10 of the $18 cab fare. When we returned to the airport the next morning the free shuttle (taxi) told us we had to pay an $18 fare. Later that day we called the Lodge to inform them of the "fleecing" by the taxi and they told us they would refund our money - we have not heard anything back. Suggest staying somewhere else.

    Location, parking, value

    Quite a throwback to the 50's and 60's; décor, furnishings but they were adequate for our needs.

    Not What I Expected

    Nothing, this was the worst place I stayed and not worth the money!

    The room was old, dirty, the carpet was obviously filthy and room was not worth sleeping in. My bathroom was atrocious and came from a nightmare 1970's B film. I was thinking it was going to be a rustic, unique experience, but what it turned out to be was just the opposite. The rooms said non-smoking, but the hall smelled of fresh cigarettes. I feel bad because this place could have potential, but is just not good, especially for the high price I paid. My bedding had stains on it and I slept with a bat in my room because I didn't feel safe.

    Booked the room for a friend who was traveling through the area. She arrived at 10:00pm after a 10 hour drive. She stated the room was dirty and sheets were stained. She did not stay and kept driving on towards her destination.

    Low price

    Rooms were pretty small, if one person stood there was not enough room to walk around them. But by far the biggest issue was the AC... It was hot and uncomfortable,

    Good value for your money

    The beds were very comfortable and the hotel in itself had a cute theme. Didn't eat at their restaurant only because I didn't have time. Staff was polite and curtious. Smelled good

    Could have been cleaner. The carpet had some stains, especially on the side next to the a/c unit, looks like there was water stains that they just covered up with carpet.

    Just right.

    the design and vibe. Not your boring suburban uninspiring place.

    restaurant opener was late so we had to go somewhere else for breakfast.

    The carpet around the edges need to be vaccumned. You can see an inch or two of dust around the edges.

About

Overview

Make your visit to Billings a special occasion with a stay at the Dude Rancher Lodge. The Dude Rancher is a unique blend of modern comforts with the rich western ambience found only in this historic hotel. The hotel was built in 1949 in the style of a western lodge but has gone through many renovations to make it comparable in quality to new hotels while retaining the character of the original construction. Room amenities include free high speed internet, over 150 TV channels, coffee makers, irons and room service. All telephone calls are free local and long distance. Guests are welcome to use the computer and printer in our lobby free of charge. Many of the rooms now feature flat screen TVs and have been remodeled in the design created by the Travel Channel team for the Dude Rancher Lodges revitalization. While visiting the Dude Rancher Lodge, you can have a real dude ranch experience with guided horseback riding atop the Rimrocks through Ponderosa Pines, fields of wildflowers, mule deer and wild turkeys. These trail rides are offered in cooperation with Bitter Creek Outfitters, a 7,000 acre working cattle ranch just 10 minutes from the hotel. The hotel features a restaurant open for breakfast, lunch and dinner where guests can enjoy fresh made to order breakfast, delicious lunch specials and soups, and traditional American cuisine for dinner in a friendly atmosphere. The hotel is pet friendly and both the restaurant and the hotel are non-smoking. The Dude Rancher is located downtown with immediate access to the business, shopping and nightlife district. The hotel is adjacent to the Alberta Bair Theatre and is close to the Metra Park, Stodden Field, the Logan Airport and state and federal office courthouses and offices. The Dude Rancher is just minutes from the Billings Clinic, St. Vincents Hospital and the medical corridor.
