Great place to stay. Doesn't look like much on the outside, but once inside the room - wowla. Best hotel room I have ever been in. Updated rooms with table, chairs, love seat, full bathroom, sink, tv, wifi, frig, microwave, coffee maker and super comfy bed. Each room is decorated with a different theme. Pet Friendly. At night the hand man plays the guitar for guests plus they have three dogs who will greet you when you arrive and wake you up in the am to say good morning especially if you have dogs yourself. In the am wild deer roam the property. When coming please note they do not have hair dryers, shampoo, napkins or spoons for your coffee, they also do not serve any kind of food but with all the food joints open in town go out and explore. Right on the Big Horn River and very friendly town. You can not beat the price of only $50 per night and $750. per month. :)
