Experience the Old West at it's finest!! The OH is a museum within a luxury hotel with an amazing collection of original pieces from the architecture, furniture & decor. Do NOT expect a quiet stay, as the hardwood floors come with the original squeaks along the corridors, (it was actually a wonderful addition to the ambiance for us!! ) Our...

Want history? Authentic old west? This is the place to see. Want a restful night of sleep? Move on! Because of it's age and authenticity, you will be awakened repeatedly throughout the night by the sounds of the creaking wood floors, squeaky mattress springs, and ancient plumbing The bar food menu is very limited, and service is less than "friendly"....

We chose the Hemingway because it has a deck overlooking the creek, but which happens to be positioned right next to the aircon units and with an overhanging tree covering most of it. Bathroom is separated by a curtain, not a wall! It was also a pretty small room but no doubt that's because I didn't pay for a suite!...

I'm not sure how to start this review. I wouldn't say this was a great hotel experience or a bad hotel experience, but it was certainly interesting. We found everyone working here (at the hotel) to be very friendly & gracious. The exception was the saloon. The bartender was less than cordial & seemed put out to have to mix...

This is a true historic hotel. Lots of artifacts of the Old West. A lot of the details are original to the hotel. It was like walking back in time. The staff were super friendly and very very helpful. We loved the room! I would have loved to stay longer.

Spent 1 night at the Occidental in the Hover suite, good historic room but not recommend if you are a light sleeper or two of you in the bed. Unfortunately the bed sagged in the middle and we didn't get a good night's sleep, I finally gave up and slept on the sofa.(told the receptionist and she made a note...

We arrived after 6 after a long day of sightseeing. The owner and hotel attendant were very nice to help us with parking since all parking in front of the hotel was taken. We also had dinner in the Virginian Restaurant which was very good, and service was excellent. It's a fun hotel with a definite western old hotel &...

It is easy to blow by Buffalo in a dash to somewhere else, but that would be a mistake if for no other reason than the opportunity to experience the Occidental Hotel, a landmark of Western history. The rooms are phenomenally appointed and extremely comfortable. Walking downstairs I wouldn't have been surprised to run into Teddy Roosevelt or Owen Wister....

About 10 of us visited Buffalo before Sturgis. Very neat old rustic building and decor....very cool. We had drinks and one morning had breakfast. Good Bloody Mary's. Breakfast ranged from biscuits and gravy, breakfast burrito, quiche etc. Food was average. I'd suggest this place for a group to have fun in a neat atmosphere in a nostalgic building.

The entrance lobby area is spacious and full of old artefacts and taxidermy. Our room was relatively big; it had a separate living room, bathroom and bedroom. This is an old property, so beware creaky floor boards and the like. We loved staying here. It was very cosy and homely. The staff on reception were pleasant. We were met on...
