Buffalo Bill Village Resort, Cody Wyoming

For families wanting a slice of Americana, Cody Wyoming is the place. Where to stay to carry out the theme of bygone days and Western charm? The Buffalo Bill Village Resort. Located in the heart of town on Sheridan Avenue, the Buffalo Bill Village is just that: a combination of motel rooms and cabins complete with a restaurant, saloon, and a Western boardwalk housing a friendly gift shop and the historic hotel building which serves as the front desk.

From the Village, families can easily access all of Cody’s downtown area on foot, for fun souvenir shopping, dining, and museum visits. The Buffalo Bill Center of the West is just a short mile away, and the Cody Nite Rodeo is less than two.

Families have their choice between Buffalo Bill cabins, or rooms at either the on-site Holiday Inn or Comfort Inn. While the latter two include a continental breakfast, it’s far more fun to stay in a cabin. After all, you’re in pioneer-country, right? Don’t expect a remote location, however: Buffalo Bill Village cabins are located directly behind the Comfort Inn and are spaced closely together. That said, we had quiet evenings and no problems from neighbors. The outside of the cabins sport replica log siding, and the interior is exactly what you’d expect (and hope for!) from a Western town roadside lodging option: whimsical rodeo-patterned bedspreads and curtains, wood paneling, and basic amenities.

Cabins include air conditioning, double beds, TVs, and internet connection (though it was painfully slow during my visit). We had a two-room cabin with one bathroom (shower and tub). Unfortunately, there are no mini-fridges in the rooms. However, guests are invited to a nightly reception in the historic hotel building from 5-8 pm, which includes fresh fruit, soft drinks, and other snacks. Cabin guests also have use of the motel heated outdoor pool.

Dining:

On-site dining includes QT’s Restaurant, which is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. But there are many more options within walking distance. Along Sheridan (Cody’s ‘Main Street’) visitors will find Mexican cantinas, Italian restaurants, and authentic saloons. Cody’s Irma Hotel includes a family-friendly porch menu of sandwiches and burgers (get there before 6 pm to view the nightly free Western shoot-out show in the street). A good breakfast can be found at both Granny’s (across the street from the village) and MoJoe’s (on Sheridan on the west end of town).
