Hotel description
The Dude Rancher Lodge is an historic downtown Billings hotel. We are proud to be listed in the National Register of Historic Places, which is America’s official list of important properties that provide a valuable link to the past and have been deemed worthy of preservation. Built in 1949, our hotel near downtown Billings is a rustic ranch that features weeping brick mortar and full-length porches. Our interior is designed with knotty pine paneling, custom-built western-style furnishings, decorative lampshades and carpeting that is adorned with the brands of local ranchers who originally invested in the property.

Staycation to celebrate our anniversary. Pleasantly surprised by how quaint and comfortable this hotel was. Close to downtown without the high price. We walked everywhere. The heating was loud during the night when it kicked in, but otherwise no complaints.More
