Like the town it’s named for, The Cody Hotel is pure Wyoming. Cody is often called one of the last few western towns, and I could easily see why when I stayed there on the first night of my tour with Austin Adventures. The town itself may have grown and modernized itself over the years, but you’d never know it driving through downtown.
When it comes to accommodations in Wyoming close to Yellowstone National Park, The Cody Hotel, ticks all the boxes. With great views of the surrounding countryside, comfortable accommodations, superb service and a distinctly wild west vibe, The Cody Hotel Wyoming is pretty close to perfect. Mere moments away from many iconic and historically significant local attractions, that makes this hotel and family friendly spot a good choice when traveling.
Cruising the main strip in Cody Wyoming feels like the pure western experience, with shops lining each side of the street – all of them with a classic western front. Just getting to the Cody Hotel is an experience in and of itself.
The Cody Hotel is Pure Wyoming
The hotel is just across the street from the Cody Nite Rodeo and Stampede Arena and Old Trail Town and just a couple of blocks from Cody institutions like The Cody Cattle Company and The Cody Firearms Company.
The exterior of the hotel is quite unassuming. It’s a simple, three-story affair that doesn’t put on a lot of airs. That being said you can feel the rustic, old west vibe even from the outside. The stonework sign welcoming you to the hotel, as well as the stonework that is prominent along portions of the outside of the hotel, lets visitors know immediately that they’re in for a relaxed rustic treat.
The interior of the hotel just screams ranch and with its warm colours and natural materials, The Cody Hotel is relaxed at heart. Walking through the doors of the hotel is soothing. The tiles and a stonework fireplace are complemented by warm, wood furniture as well as chairs and sofas featuring leather and fabric that further add to the charm and western feel of the hotel.
The Cody Hotel Accommodations
The hotel features several room options, and a variety of amenities that make life at the hotel both more productive and more comfortable.
The Cody Hotel room choices range from standard to suite options. The standard room features a custom-made king bed or two custom-made queen beds. The rooms also have a refrigerator and microwave, as well as an easy chair, desk, iron, hairdryer, I-pod docking station and more.
The Deluxe King Room and Deluxe Queen Room feature everything the standard room has with an added patio or balcony for enjoying the beautiful Wyoming scenery and crisp, clean air.
Finally, the suites feel like living in a home away from home. Their open airy design boasts a spacious living area complete with fireplace, making it a great option for a more homey feel while you’re away.
Services and Amenities
I liked this hotel for so many reasons, not the least of which is the available pool, bike access, and complimentary breakfast. However, those are just three amenities that make The Cody Hotel so wonderful. You wouldn’t expect some of these higher-end bonuses in such an unassuming hotel, but I think that’s what makes it so special. Amenities offered include:
- 24-Hour Front Desk
- Business Center with Printer
- Free Hot Breakfast
- Fitness Room
- Free Airport Transportation
- Free Shuttle Transportation from West End and Downtown
- Free High-Speed WiFi Throughout
- Indoor Hot Tub
- Indoor Pool
- Outdoor Firepit
- Indoor Corridors
The Cody really thought of everything when it comes to its guests. As a blogger, I appreciated the FREE high-speed WiFi, the shuttle and as a frequent traveler, I thoroughly enjoyed the free hot breakfast. Those amenities alone are enough for any hotel to receive high marks in my opinion.
The Cody Hotel couldn’t be more perfectly located. The hotel is close to the airport as well as everything that makes Cody Wyoming famous. In addition, road trippers have access to several main highways, making it easy to explore the surrounding area. This combination of proximity and navigability makes The Cody an excellent home base for a vacation to the area.
Get Grounded at The Cody Hotel
From the outside, The Cody Hotel is a simple, unassuming affair. In fact, without its stonework and little touches, you’d never know it was anything more than a standard hotel. But that’s part of its charm.
The Cody Hotel is as much a staple of the Wyoming atmosphere as Cody is itself. Just like the town, The Cody Hotel is what it is without the need for lots of drama or flair. It welcomes you in with a friendly exterior and entices you to stay with an interior that is warm, inviting, and purely Wyoming. It’s one of the best hotels I’ve had the pleasure of staying at in months.
If you’re planning a trip to the Cody, Wyoming area, I highly recommend The Cody Hotel. It has everything you’d ever want in a hotel, and it has it with a distinctly Wyoming flair.
