  • A large group of musicians entertained the capacity crowd. Many types of beer available and several food items too. A must-go place while in town.  more »
  • The museum is really the hotel's lobby, ground floor corridor and a room off the Saloon. But in reality, the whole hotel is a museum, capturing what it was like to stay at an upscale late 19th century...  more »
  • We stopped for Mothers Day and ate The Virginian. Service was terrific as was the meal. We enjoyed looking around and learning the history!  more »

  • Love the time warp. Beautiful hotel, wonderful staff, great band on weekends, furnishings are authentic, and comfortable beds. If you're a person who likes it cooler then maybe find somewhere else to stay. It's an old building so not everywhere has an A.C. but the atmosphere makes up for it. Our next stay will be here again!
  • Stayed at the Occidental this last weekend. The hotel with all its history is amazing. The antiques are unbelievable - a step back in time. The rooms were clean, comfortable and reasonable priced. The staff were very friendly. We did enjoy the Busy Bee for breakfast; fast, friendly service and good food. We purchased the Occidental history book and enjoyed reading while traveling the rest of our weekend. Didn't get to meet Emily, but sure enjoyed our stay. We will be back when we pass through Buffalo. Thanks for keeping history alive.
  • Great place to spend a night or two. Small town feel with the historic charm of the West minus the crush of traffic. Stayed in the President Hoover Suite. Nice sitting area, (I'm writing this on my Kindle Fire at the small, round table while listening to a 1938 Philco Model 38-40 "farm radio".) Leather couch, cushy chair, and lots of True West magazines to read. The bed was the best we've enjoyed on our trip. (Even better than our bed in Yellowstone's Old Faithful Inn.) The Saloon and Ms. Vickie are entertainment enough for an evening, but there's still live music at just the right level for old ears. If you close your eyes you can almost see Butch Cassidy sitting at the bar waiting for Sundance to stroll in. Worth the time and money. America needs more places like this.
  • The occidental has a unique character. We always stop in for a drink while in town. There is a beer garden in back that we always stop at when on road trip to let the kiddos run around.
  • We waited 35 minutes for really bad food at the saloon restaurant Way overpriced for the poor quality
