Absolutely love this place. My mother, brother, dog and I stayed here 3 days over Christmas and had an incredible time. The rooms and hotel are so great, perfectly decorated in frontier, old west styl...e. Our hosts for the time we were there, Donna and Bob, were outstanding. Very knowledgeable about the history of the hotel and were so helpful to our every need. The saloon is the coolest damn saloon you will ever step foot in, and great music on the weekends!
Can't wait to go back!

I've stayed here before and wanted to return to experience the beauty of this historical relic. Absolutely worth a trip to stay here and enjoy the beauty of every room. The history of who stayed here,... the intact original interior is so special. The rooms are gorgeous decorated in period pieces and decor. The Saloon is a fun time with live music most nights. The staff and local people are very friendly and willing to share stories. I will be back. See More

We are there yesterday for the Thanksgiving buffet in The Virginian. The food was excellent. This was the first Thanksgiving in many years that I didn’t cook. They had all our favorite dishes and more.... The atmosphere was lovely and the staff was friendly and attentive. I hope we do this again! I highly recommend it! See More

We stayed on 7/18/17. I have wanted to stay for awhile. We were traveling the west from Ohio. Our stay was great!! We stayed in the Cottonwood, what a beautiful suite and old hotel! We had dinner at t...he Virginian, WOW, the food was excellent! I had the Baked Scallops and my husband had the Bison Ribeye. We also chose the Artichoke and Spinach Bake as an appetizer. The staff were remarkable. We spent some time in the saloon as well, it was just as great. I loved the Blacktooth Brown on tap! Live entertainment and all around great people! We will be back sometime for another visit as we loved Buffalo and the Occidental.
Thank you David and Jackie for operating such a wonderful jewel! We were impressed by the place but especially by the awesome staff, so friendly and welcoming!

Coolest place you will ever stay! Yes, it's old and the floors creak, but that is what makes it so unique. Everyone here is so friendly and wants to share the hotel's history. Highly recommend in, even if you don't stay. See More

Immerse yourself in history and wild-west lore by staying here! Today, it's managed by a wonderfully loving and attentive family couple with a great deal of pride in ownership. Be sure and learn abo...ut their "perpetual residents" and the days when it was a brothel. Great stop-over when flying yourself cross-country with a very convenient and accommodating local airport -- KBYG. See More

If you are EVER going through Buffalo, WY (the intersection of I-90 & I-25) you need to stop in the Occidental; especially on a Thursday night. Very decent food, great bar, and amazing music. If you h...ave the chance and don't do it, it is your loss. See More

It was old and floors creaked with every step. Each room had its own decor, which was cool. Lobby was filled with a lot of things from that time era. Taxidermy, mostly heads in lobby and bar areas. ...Dining areas were cool See More

Amazing historic hotel and the staff is amazingly accommodating. Thank you Donna, Jackie and the entire staff for an AMAZING one night stay. It was the perfect ending of our two week trip and was ou...r good timing and lack of planning that we landed in Buffalo and the Occidental on a Thursday night . We will never forget it and hope to be back ! See More

Very cool atmosphere/ambience. Clean with friendly staff. Couldn't get a seat in the saloon as Thursday is "jam night" and it was packed. This also lead to a lot of street noise into the night.

We were lucky enough to have a friend recommend this wonderful place. The entire hotel, saloon and private rooms are a functioning museum. Wish we could have stayed longer.

This was the second time I stayed. Love it. Staff was very sweet and bar had a band. We danced had drinks and a great time. I would recommend staying there.
We had so much fun at the jam last night, hope you did too!
