Constructed in 1892, the Historic Sheridan Inn gave adventurous travelers a taste of Eastern luxury in the West. Through the years, the Inn has remained a hub of activity, offering elegant New Year's Eve balls and the town's first electric lights. Buffalo Bill Cody sat on the front porch of the Inn auditioning acts to join the "Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show." The Inn is on the National Register of Historic Places. In October 2013, Bob and Dana Townsend became the newest owners of the Inn, bringing 21st century luxury to the 19th century building. The Inn is now open for overnight stays, banquets and tours. Lunch and dinner are also served in the Open Range Restaurant.

Chicken fried chicken was tasty but a little undercooked. Bread pudding desert was a glob of brown sugar and not much bread. The interior is a really great historical building. Worth a appetizer or drink to see it but not for the cost of a...More

We love to eat at the Sheridan Inn because of the historic building. Just love the atmosphere. But the food is up to par with the renovation. Excellent fillet and grilled asparagus.

Our lunch stop during our tour of national parks was quite the disappointment. The restaurant was not ready for us, there was not enough food for the group, Reuben sandwiches were burnt, soup was akin to dishwater, etc., etc., etc.

Fred, we appreciate your review, however....your bus tour contracts with Open Range restaurant, not with the Sheridan Inn. The Sheridan Inn has nothing to do with the contract, food or bus line choices for meals. We hope your National Park trip was memorable.

Most amazing food and people you could ask for! The 3rd floor has games, coffee, and homemade crockpot meals for special occasions! 😍

My husband remembered the Sheridan Inn from a summer job 53 years ago! We were happy to see that it has been restored (spendidly) and is open again. We enjoyed cocktails at the historic bar while I listened to his reminiscences. A happy afternoon.

Best thing to do is Call the Historic Sheridan Inn and ask. They would be a faster and more persise on what they have available. But good question. I personally have never seen a roll in shower. Good luck.
