Don't go here for the food, but it is an interesting place to eat it you are into history and atmosphere. My wife is NOT a fan of eating in a bar, so might have had a better experience without her, but the history and atmosphere in this place is amazing.

Quirky place. Very friendly and very pet friendly. This was our first time to stay in Buffalo and we'd go out of our way to go back, staying again at the Occidental. We stayed in Madam's room, which has only an open lace curtain between the bedroom and the bathroom--you'll want to be intimate with anyone you share this room...

We stopped here for dinner on a family vacation and were pleasantly surprised. The saloon was open and there were plenty of reasonably priced options on the menu. I enjoyed a local craft beer recommended by the waitress who was very friendly and informative. The site had plenty of historical memorabilia for us to enjoy while we waited for our...

The Occidental is a great, historic hotel in downtown Buffalo, WY. At check in, Dawn, the desk clerk offered a short tour of the hotel. After leaving our bags in our room, we enjoyed a peek in the unoccupied rooms (doors were open), a look at the library and a display of old quilts and apparel in one hall. She...

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.

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.
