I booked the Painted Buffalo Inn because of both location and price and because we needed place for a total of 7 people, which they were able to provide. From the outside the Inn looks like a straightforward motel. However, the attention to detail like the stuffed animals in each room, cold drinks always available in the office, pleasant pool...

Was looking for a place to spend the night when we found this place. Room was nice and clean, beds were comfortable. Had a really good rest here. But the price is definitely on the high side. Check in and out was easy.

Rolled into town quite late we were able to get the last room.......although it was a bit confusing to find the room, the staff was very nice, except the one thing that bothered me was the girl at the front desk announced to the staff in the back that she just sold the last room like she won the lottery...

Thank you for this response. We appreciate the positive feedback, and we are grateful to hear the not-so-great about the check-in issue as well.Being such a busy and popular destination it can sometimes be necessary to inform all other front desk clerks that the last room has been sold immediately so they don't also sell it, but we regret that...

If I could rate it less than 1 star I would....at $275 for the night I would at least expect to have an updated, clean room/bathroom.....there was hair in the tub and floor (not ours) and the chairs and sofa bed had stains on them. Very noisy....we were in a 1st floor room, and the room above us woke us...

Extremely noisy. Old, uneven board walks magnified all the sounds of rolling suitcases and cleaning carts. Wooden stairways to the upstairs were noisy with guests all night. I don't think the people up above us were jumping off the beds because when the cleaning people were there the next morning it was equally noisy. Four large nasty pet stains on...

We booked through Booking.Com and I think that is why we got rooms on the end closet to the very busy highway...The agent checking us in was very slow and we could hardly understand her. It took her forever to find out reservation..we were given rooms next to each other as requested.
