Luxury meets western charm and presidential history at the Historic Rough Riders Hotel, located in the heart of downtown Medora!

Enjoy luxury accommodations with the feel of the old west.  

Luxury meets western charm and presidential history at the Historic Rough Riders Hotel, located in the heart of downtown Medora.

Named for the volunteer cavalry unit led by America's 26th President, Theodore Roosevelt, you’ll fall in love the moment you arrive and see the immense hearth reaching to the tin-tiled ceiling, with walls housing one of the largest private (yet available for you to read) library of books on, and by, Theodore Roosevelt 

Rooms are adorned with a touch of the west, the right amount of luxury, and walk-in showers marked by the brands of Roosevelt. If 1880s nostalgia is your thing, ask for one of our historic rooms where it’s rumored the President himself may have delivered a speech from the balcony!
