It’s easy to see why Wyoming is nicknamed the Cowboy State when you visit Sheridan. The two-story buildings downtown might not contain as many smoky saloons with swinging doors as they used to, but you can still imagine riding up on horseback in search of a drink and a place to bed down. And for road-trippers chewing through endless American highways, Sheridan is an ideal stop between Mount Rushmore and Yellowstone National Park. Check out these top hotels in Sheridan, bookable through Culture Trip.

1. Sheridan Inn, for a slice of the Wild West

The Sheridan Inn doesn’t simply reflect the town’s past to win tourist bucks – it’s a true piece of Wild West history. None other than Buffalo Bill was credited as a part-owner when the hotel first opened in 1892, securing real cowboy cred. While that historic link is faithfully upheld via period features – including antique wooden furniture and clawfoot bathtubs – the comforts are decidedly modern.

2. Fairfield Inn & Suites Sheridan, for easy Interstate access

Looking to stay close to the Interstate during your stay in Sheridan? Fairfield Inn & Suites is just around the corner from the exit ramp and yet only a block or two away from a cluster of restaurants and bars. With peach-colored walls and thick, patterned carpets, the rooms are warm and welcoming. If you’re looking to stay in shape while traveling, the hotel has you covered with its small indoor pool and 24-hour fitness center, containing running and elliptical machines.

3. Candlewood Suites Sheridan, an IHG Hotel, for extended stays

If you’re looking for a little extra space during your time in Sheridan, plus a range of useful amenities including laundry service and a DVD library, stay at the all-suite Candlewood hotel. The apartment-like suites have a homey atmosphere, with the living and sleeping spaces divided into separate rooms. If you enjoy cooking, you’ll love the full kitchen, complete with a two-hob stove and fridge-freezer with an ice-maker. Pets are welcome for an additional fee, so you can bring your four-legged friend.

4. Hampton Inn Sheridan, for a handy exploration base

Situated less than 2mi (3km) from Sheridan’s downtown and moments from the I-90, the Hampton Inn has the Museum at the Bighorns for a neighbor – a fascinating space that explores the history of Sheridan and the wider region. Proximity to the highway also makes visiting the Bighorn National Forest and Canyon quick and easy. The Hampton Inn itself is a cozy exploration base, with tasteful wooden furniture, large bathrooms and plenty of useful extras, including a microwave and mini-fridge. There’s also an excellent indoor pool with views of the countryside.

5. Holiday Lodge Motel, for great-value family accommodation

Stepping into the Holiday Lodge Motel is a little like jumping back in time. The old-style, single-story motel might feel a little faded, but the prices haven’t changed much over the decades either. Downtown Sheridan is only a short drive away, but the motel’s seasonal, heated outdoor pool and waterslide will keep the kids entertained on-site. Rooms are snug, lovingly cared for and all contain a sitting area, microwave and fridge.
