We stayed at the Blue Gables Motel while driving from Rapid City to Yellowstone, and were looking for a value for money place to stay along the way.

The site on which the cabins are situated is very attractive, with flowers and well cared for grassy areas and the pool was lovely - such a pleasure on a hot day.

The cabins themselves are small, but clean and functional, the wi-fi was quite slow but did work to an acceptable level if you sat in the covered area to the side of the pool (behind the office).

There is also a coffee shop on site where in addition you can also buy the most lovely fruit iced smoothies. Downtown Buffalo is within easy walking distance.

Our stay was also made extra special by the lovely people we met while staying at the Blue Gables, the owners were friendly and helpful, and we were also lucky to spend time with some of the other guests. All in all definitely recommended.

A friend and I were planning to spend the night in Casper, WY. But, there were no motels available because of a fair and rodeo in town. We got back on the interstate and headed north. When we arrived in Buffalo, we found out that there were no rooms available there either, with the exception of the Blue Gables Motel. There were only 2 rooms left and we took one of them. The room was clean and comfortable. The proprietors were friendly and helpful. But the biggest to us was that, out behind the motel, there was a fire burning and a group of bluegrass musicians were playing and singing! What a treat! We stumbled on this place by accident, but will come back here on purpose.

My family absolutely LOVES this place!! We visit the Blue Gables yearly and were absolutely devastated when we had to miss a year!! Not only are the cabins cute, VERY clean, and comfortable, but the owners Jim and Karen are absolutely WONDERFUL!!! We have visited them so many times that it feels like we are visiting family! The Blue Gables is located right in the heart of Buffalo, which makes it easy to walk to anything nearby. I highly recommend the Blue Gables, you will leave the rested and with some new friends!

This is a family owned place and their pride in it shows. The grounds are very pretty with abundant flowers. The cabins themselves are adorable. Karen, the owner is so charming and helpful with information. We thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay.

The Blue Gables Motel in Buffalo, Wyoming offers quiet and clean quarters within walking distance of great restaurants, a local museum worth seeing and some fine galleries. Buffalo is at the foot of the Big Horn Mountains and only an hour and a half away from the Big Horn Battlefield National Monument.
The location is perfect for the traveler who likes to walk a bit after a day in the car and the property has a pool and lovely flowers all around. There is also a laundry on site for guests.
There is no restaurant or fitness room, but it is charming for being the older kind of place with separate cabins.
