This historic hotel where Theodore Roosevelt once stayed (and campaigned from the balcony) went through a full facelift and major expansion in 2009. Now, in addition to its eight historic rooms, it has 68 new ones with the most upscale lodging in the area. Rates start at $169/night. The restaurant with its wine, walleye, bison tenderloin, lobster bisque and other temptations is worthy of a date night.

My husband and I spent two nights at this very nice hotel, while visiting Theodore Roosevelt National Park. We love the location, the easy and free parking, the room, the helpful front desk, the really neat historic decor. What we didn’t like was the fact that we could not change the temperature from 64°, and we about froze the first day. The second day it was almost too hot. The front desk twice told us that none of the air conditioning and heating units in the rooms could be changed by the occupants. That needs to be changed!
If you want to stay in a hotel in downtown Medora, then this is the spot. It is walking distance from all local restaurants and shops. It is also a short drive to the entrance to Theodore National Park entrance.
If you love to read and enjoy history, grab a glass of wine and sit in the library area and read one of the numerous books in the Theodore Roosevelt library.
