The ranch is 7 long miles from Medora & a mile on a rough dirt road. The cabin was basic but ok til we learned there was no internet & the tv was also down--& there was no soap !! They did give us a full refund when we immediately checked out. Because we had a dog with us, we...

Every inch of Wyoming is covered with grass except for this campground—all mud, with a smidgen of gravel. The approach to the campground is a couple of miles of washboard dirt road. No wonder we were the only campers there. One working washing machine. No dumpsters, just a trashcan near the office. And worst of all, power outages that they...

We chose the Buffalo Gap Guest Ranch because it was pet friendly and reasonably priced for the area. This is truly a working ranch with lots of activities for families who enjoy riding or hiking. The people here were extremely friendly and the food in the restaurant is very good. The rooms are picturesque and the back patio is perfect...

I go to the ranch every year and this place is the best. If you need something they will figure it out and do anything to acomidate you. Only thing bad is I wish I could make it out there more often!!!

The rooms are very dated, dark and gloomy. Many people including ourselves were having a hard time getting the keys to work in the rooms. Our toilet needed to be plunged after each use. The linen was very thinice and old. We ate at the restaurant and it was pretty good.

In terms of dog friendly hotels, this was really the only choice my boyfriend and I had when visiting Medora. Once you exit off of I-94 there can be no wrong turns! You go left to go back into town or you go right to enter Buffalo Gap territory. From the outside it looks long in the tooth but the...

First impression were not favorable and as our overnight stay unfolded we could not wait for morning to move on. Our room #5 was not clean, but no complaints on the condition of the bathroom. The "writing" deck had the fridge on it and the wood on the one side was rotten causing it to lean noticeably.After giving the coffee...

We came here for a wedding, and it was a nightmare. We should have known right away when the front desk demanded we paid in front before seeing the place. Cabin was dirty, had mud on the floor, hair in the sheets, dirty washcloth on the bathroom. Hot water leaked and didn't even work until we had to troubleshoot and...

We attended a wedding in North Dakota and the Bride and Groom choose Buffalo Gap as their rehearsal and reception destination. I have nothing but great things to say about this place. The room was clean and had everything we needed. The food was outstanding! We had the breakfast buffet, lunch and dinner at the ranch. The staff was so...

“If you want the queen sized beds in your room make sure to reserve one that is in the new part of the hotel. The older side has full sized beds and bunks.”
