“great hotel, with great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2009

I stayed at The Cody for a week in mid-September, 2009. I had a great stay - excellent room for the price (under $125/night for two queen beds) with a refrig, microwave, good beds, both foam and down pillows, free high-speed internet, two bathrobes, etc. The ipod dock on the radio and the DVD player (with a selection of free loaner movies in the lobby) were nice touches. Hotel had an exercise room with more than the typical treadmill (bikes, weights, etc.), indoor pool and hot tub. Also has loaner bicycles and an outdoor fireplace and sitting area for relaxing.

One day, when I was working in the room nearly all day, I left a "do not disturb" sign on the door. The maids left a note with the housekeeping phone number on the door. I called and the maids cleaned the room and replaced the sheets late afternoon. Note that if you leave the "go green" sign by the bed, they will not change sheets that night. If you turn the go-green sign face-down or move it, the sheets and towels were all changed. I certainly had none of the problems with housekeeping that two previous reviewers noted - my experience was just the opposite; helpful staff working with my schedule.

Desk staff was friendly and helpful, giving spot-on directions to the Japanese internment camp about 12 miles outside of town, the wild mustangs, good info on restaurants in town, etc. Breakfast was good - sausage, eggs, french toast, fresh fruit, muffins, etc. - but not outstanding. Had evening desserts in the lobby.

The business office off the lobby had two laptops with internet and printers (free printing).

The only negative thing I can say is that the location, about 3 miles outside of downtown, is too far to walk to the shops/restaurants downtown. I had a car, so did not ask if the hotel shuttle could run me downtown. The hotel is within walking distance of the rodeo arena and The Terrace restaurant (good food), and the "old town" across the street, but not much else.

This may not be a "luxury" hotel by NYC standards but it was certainly on par with the last few Marriotts I've been in. Most hotels in Cody are basic Motel 6 type hotels - I would certainly recommend this hotel to just about anyone.

Love love loved staying at the Cody. The Cody is a pet friendly hotel and we stayed in on of their suites. The suite #126 is fab!! Large comfortable king size bed....the room is extra large with a gas fireplace and a jacuzzi tub. There is a granite counter kitchenette with micro, fridge sink, coffee pot and room safe. Very tastefully decorated with western decor including a sitting area. There is a laundry area in the hotel so "road trip" travelers may do some laundry. The staff was very friendly and the complimentary breakfast is wonderful. Visiting in Cody Wyoming???? This is a MUST stay hotel!

The Cody was a beautiful hotel and the desk staff was friendly. The price was luxury class ($225.) was everything else was "on the cheap". The waste basket was full of the previous guests' bottles and trash. The 'hole' for clothes was about 18" wide. The room was no better than the standard chain hotel room. When I said something to the manager about the rough kleenex and toilet tissue, she said that they were being 'green'. The breakfast was (In our opinion) was the cheapest frozen product they could buy. The first morning I looked for an attendant to ask for possibly some wheat bread for toast. She was on her cell phone in the kitchen and did not get off to answer my question. After that we ate elsewhere. We had reservations for four nights but left after three.

The Cody appreciates all comments that help us improve. We have made some design and operations choices to be "green friendly" and they do not suit everyone.
Our contenintal breakfast has hot items as well as 3 types of bread, fruit, oatmeal, grannola and yougart. We have several different room sizes to accomodate guests that need more space, some with full closets.

This is the place ot stay if you're in Cody. The pool and spa is open 24 hours a day. This was a plus with my son, it gave him a break from all the hiking in Yellowstone!
It turned out to be a plus for the entire family; As we came back from the rodeo that evening and all took a dip. The Cody offers "rodeo stays" where they'll supply you with a room and tickets to the rodeo. The rodeo is within walking distance of the hotel and a lot of fun.
Another attraction is right across the street... "Old Town", a collection of antique buildings... and the old mountain man Jerimiah Johnsons burial place. Good stuff.
The staff was really pleasant, and the breakfasts are complimentary... which is really good. We showed up late for breakfast one morning and the woman taking care of the area was more then gracious dealing with us. They also have complimentary computers available, with internet access of course. The main drag of Cody is a 2 minute drive away. On the strip you'll find plenty of stores and restaurants, and the Buffalo Bill Cody Museum. The Buffalo Bill museum is a must see.

We had friends that stayed at the Cody last year and suggested that we stay here. I booked the room over the internet and even asked for a certain room #. Our room was on the third floor with a balcony overlooking the rodeo (which had closed for the year - June through August). The king bed was delightful, good quality as were the linens and ammenities. The flat screened TV was nice as was the microwave and fridge.

There is a little know fact about the Cody that I don't think many people know, and it wasn't conveyed to us when we checked in either. At 6 pm they have a dessert and coffee in the lobby. If I hadn't read the tripadvisor reviews, I would not have known that.

Cody is a delightful little city - many restaurants and shops as well as the Buffalo Bill Cody Museum (Draper). This museum took us an entire day to walk through and we could have spent more time there. Make sure to take the trolley ride - lots of history revealed.

The Wyoming Rib and Chop House is a great place to eat....obviously - we were there 3 nights and ate there every night. We also had lunch at the Irma and it was good as well. Breakfast at the hotel was good, with fresh fruits and berries each morning in addition to the regular eggs, sausage fare.

We hated to leave the Cody; it was so comfortable. The only problem we had was with housekeeping - they just didn't finish on the 2nd day and we had no towels and the bathroom had not been cleaned. The Front Desk took care of the towels and there was not another problem the next 2 days.

very nice property in cody. the lobby and common areas were well done, and a pleasure to spend time in. Rooms were nice, think upscale holiday inn express, granite counters, spa like accessories. However, walls are as thin as normal HI express, could hear children screaming next door. Left over soda bottle was under chair from previous guest? Good standard chain breakfast area. Was a couple of miles from main street, would probably recommend at under $150, no more.

No complaints with the hotel itself. Room was very nice, comfortable beds, great landscaping outside and each room has a balcony. Sits very near the rodeo, so you can walk there if you choose. Only complaint was a rude front desk person when we checked in (others were very nice) and they doubled billed the credit card. They are supposedly taking care of that. It is a bit pricey for the area, but... does have a lot of frills to warrant the price. Nice continental breakfast.

The shoot out at the Irma hotel is VERY corny, but fun :)
