We stayed here as it was an option with the package deal for the Medora Musical and Cowboy Fondue. The motel has just been remodeled and is VERY nice. No free breakfast which doesn't matter to us. The room was clean, modern and VERY quiet. Stay here for a good night's sleep,

I was very happy to see the newly updated motel. Lovely room, great beds, comfortable stay. It is nice to park and walk everywhere in this lovely little town. We were able to find shopping and eating easily from the motel.

We stayed two nights at the Badlands motel in Medora. Very nicely remodeled rooms, nice comfortable furnishings. A nice pool on the property. Check in and check out was very quick and easy. Would definitely stay there again.

The Badlands Motel is an old fashioned, drive up to your room, motor hotel. The rooms have been remodeled and it is indeed a lovely place to stay. Right outside our room, we could see the beautiful mountains of Theodore Roosevelt National Park. The room was comfortable, the bathroom was fine, and everything was quite nice.

We recently stayed at the Badlands Motel in Medora. When I inquired, I was told the rooms were all remodeled. We had stayed in that very hotel a few years ago, and at that time was very dated. I was very pleased with what was done. Not just a fresh coat of paint here, it was done right, including the... More

Clean, comfortable, newly updated, and a view!. We got a wonderful nights sleep! Loved the seat in the shower, too! We did not take advantage of the pool as time did not allow for it, but the pool was clean and looked inviting! We noticed a lot of kids in the pool having fun!

We stopped here for one night. The motel has been recently remodeled and it's very nice. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The beds are very comfortable and bathrooms very clean. I would come back and stay again the next time we're in Medora.

This hotel has been recently renovated so don't let the outside deter you from staying here! Everything was very clean and the grounds are well taken care of. The outdoor pool is awesome and is nice and deep which is great for teenagers and adult swimmers who actually want to swim! Very close to everything in town easy to walk... More

After a sub par experience at another hotel, this motel seemed like the Ritz Carlton! Doesn't look like much from the outside but rooms were clean and obviously newly renovated. Bathrooms were particularly sharp looking. Even with the small touch of a nicely scented lime shampoo was appreciated. A nice pool and putt putt course were onsite plus a playground.... More

Nice basic rooms. Clean, nice people and great view. Good place, second time there. Refrigerator. Young people from all over the world work there. You can schedule all the shows and hotels with one call and pickup all your tickets at your hotel.
