Considering there's just 1 accommodation option within a 6-mile radius of Paxton's downtown, it's wise securing your room well in advance.
If you need to stay as close to the center as possible, the Paxton Days Inn is the place to look into.
Ogallala is 19 miles to the west of Paxton, and is home to the Cowboy Museum and Front Street. The Holiday Inn Express Ogallala and Quality Inn Ogallala are just some of the great lodging options in Ogallala. Or, stay in North Platte, 30 miles to the east of Paxton, where you'll find the Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott North Platte and Holiday Inn Express & Suites - North Platte. Regardless of whether you're passing through or spending a few nights in North Platte, make sure you visit the Cody Go Karts, Inc. and Cody Park.
