The Occidental is such a beautiful old western-style hotel. The amount of effort made in the décor is unbelievable! Every room is unique. We stayed in the Cloud Peak room, which was beautiful and warm. This is without a doubt a must-visit historic hotel, can't wait to stay again.

The hotel was like taking a step back in time. Antique displays, furniture and deco were all interesting and beautiful. The rooms were nice, so authentic to the hotel and beds were comfy. The staff is wonderful!! It was like staying with a family, not some impersonal cold chain hotel feel. The Busy Bee was wonderful at breakfast and the...

I love old historic hotels, and this one is a must stay. I take an out West road trip at least once a summer and can't believe I never stayed here before. Nice little town and great adjacent saloon...look for the bullet holes in the ceiling. Perfect stop for a ride next day through Ten Sleep Canyon.

Yes! A ride through Ten Sleep is perfect, and don't miss the Crazy Woman Canyon if you return and have time to stay another day! I am so glad you found us. Thank you for responding to us; it is very important.

Stayed here 3 or 4 times now, and just LOVE it! The most charming, authentic, wonderful old hotel out there... Rooms are warm and inviting...lobby, bar, and restaurant are real gems...live music on Thursday night...get there early to get a good seat :-) The best meal I have EVER had was in their restaurant...(elk medallions).

A great old historic hotel/saloon experience. Totally authentic. Comfortable, period-decorated rooms. Reasonable. Loads of historical info. Close to Big Horn Mountains and outdoor activities. Walkable downtown.

This is an historic hotel which does take you back in time. We walked into the lobby and were awestruck at the memorabilia in the room. Service in the bar was very good, but animal lovers beware as the walls are loaded with stuffed wildlife of every sort - taxidermy is alive and well in Buffalo. Our room on the...

Thank you for your kind review. We work hard at keeping our establishment authentic. We think our mounts are displayed with taste. We, my husband and I, are great lovers of the wildlife "society". Sometimes, disease will overcome herds if they are not thinned out. What better way to enjoy these wonderful animals, but to preserve their presence in this...

From the moment we pulled in front of the hotel, I knew this was going to be a unique experience. I was met by a young porter who escorted me into the lobby and showed me to the registration desk. As I walked through the front door and into the lobby, I felt as though I had walked through a...

Thank you for sharing your experience with us! I must say, I found myself smiling as I read your review. It helped me remember how important it is to be kind and helpful to our guests. I too, felt a little disoriented when I first visited this grand western hotel. We are the home of the famous Johnson County Wars...

We have stayed 2 different times. I think there is good music every night, but it is fabulous on Thursday nights. Unbelievable. It's so convenient to stay right in the hotel, even though it is very old.

As you open the door and walk into the Hotel Lobby it feels like you have walked into the past. Then, you go into the Saloon and you have definitely walked into the past once again.

Thank you reviewing our famous, historical hotel. We could change, but then, we wouldn't really be historical! For those who desire a different experience, as you observed, we are it. We covet our squeaky floors and old fixtures; after all; what would be without them! I am in great hopes, because you won't forget us, that you will visit us...

Even if you usually stay in chain hotels, give this one a try. As others have said, it is old, dated, etc. True. But how often do you get a chance to stay in a hotel over 100 years old? Room actually uses a real key! Very clean, comfortable, restored to perfection. Read each room's description, as they are all...
