Make your visit to Billings a special occasion with a stay at the Dude Rancher Lodge. The Dude Rancher is a unique blend of modern comforts with the rich western ambience found only in this historic hotel. The hotel was built in 1949 in the style of a western lodge but has gone through many renovations to make it comparable in quality to new hotels while retaining the character of the original construction. Room amenities include free high speed internet, over 150 TV channels, coffee makers, irons and room service. All telephone calls are free local and long distance. Guests are welcome to use the computer and printer in our lobby free of charge. Many of the rooms now feature flat screen TVs and have been remodeled in the design created by the Travel Channel team for the Dude Rancher Lodges revitalization. While visiting the Dude Rancher Lodge, you can have a real dude ranch experience with guided horseback riding atop the Rimrocks through Ponderosa Pines, fields of wildflowers, mule deer and wild turkeys. These trail rides are offered in cooperation with Bitter Creek Outfitters, a 7,000 acre working cattle ranch just 10 minutes from the hotel. The hotel features a restaurant open for breakfast, lunch and dinner where guests can enjoy fresh made to order breakfast, delicious lunch specials and soups, and traditional American cuisine for dinner in a friendly atmosphere. The hotel is pet friendly and both the restaurant and the hotel are non-smoking. The Dude Rancher is located downtown with immediate access to the business, shopping and nightlife district. The hotel is adjacent to the Alberta Bair Theatre and is close to the Metra Park, Stodden Field, the Logan Airport and state and federal office courthouses and offices. The Dude Rancher is just minutes from the Billings Clinic, St. Vincents Hospital and the medical corridor. Come stay with us and enjoy true western hospitality for a good nights stay and an experience apart from the beaten path. We look forward to seeing you.
