We spent two nights here while on a road trip. A pleasant, quiet room behind a bookstore with a nice place to sit outside in between the two. Nice western touches. Right "downtown" Medora, walking distance to everything. Noisy mattress.

We planned on spending 3 nights in Medora to explore Roosevelt natl park. After checking in we walked over to a restaurant for dinner. I decided to have a cigar on the back patio of the hotel. After about 15 minutes a woman came around the corner and in a stern voice informed me that "there is no smoking on our property inside and out. The smoke is coming thru our screen door" I apologized and left the area to finish my cigar. When I returned, my wife (who was in bed) informed me that someone was knocking at the door. She did not answer as she was not dressed. A few minutes later there was a knock again. It was Mary with 2 other people that may have been her daughter and son? She informed me that we were to vacate the room immediately and we would forfeit lodging fees for that night and the next. She indicated "I am sick of you smokers" I was in shock. I asked if there might be other lodging in town and she said the closest lodging was likely in Dickinson 30 miles away. She showed me a copy of the lodging confirmation E mail sent to me when we reserved the room 30 days prior. It did say the grounds are non smoking. When I received the email and did skim thru it and did not remember not to smoke outdoors at the hotel. We were forced to leave, drive around and find a room at 10 pm at night. If you read most reviews for the Amble Inn they are great. Take the time to read the bad ones. It seems to me there is a pattern. I am now forced to fight for a refund of $443 thru the Visa dispute system and we were forced to change our vacation plans because I forgot not to have cigar on the property of a very crabby owner. BEWARE THE AMBLE INN

We were traveling during the Wuhan Covid19 crisis and before Memorial Day so we called ahead to make sure we could get a room. Our plans were to tour Theodore Roosevelt National Park South Unit and roam around town. She let us know the town was just getting going opening up and we’d have a tough time finding a place for breakfast. Although a couple of restaurants are open for lunch and supper and she said the Hitching Post was open. (I wanted to buy a trinket while I was there.) I bet that town is a hoot when it’s up and running full bore. As it was, we really enjoyed the park, we hiked up to the top of Buck Hill, saw the wild horses, bison etc... Oh and we loved the bed! Soo comfy. Yes, the room (#1) was small, but we had choices to sit on three different kinds of chairs or plop on the bed. TV was small, but it worked for us. We asked for ice and she brought it right to our door. The location was perfect, we walked the town, took a photo with the statue of Teddy and found the geo cache. The statue of the Marquis de Mores needs a good rain, so no photo there, but a nice park with deer in it. We loved our stay and wow, the history there! Maltese Cross Cabin. We’d go again.

An exceptionally rude lady at the front desk. We never made it to the property due to the snowstorm and government-mandated highway closure. We were trying to figure out our stay as the storm changed all our plans. We texted the hotel that we can't come as all roads leading to the hotel were closed. 5 Days later, I see a 100% charge on my credit card. When I called the hotel, the lady, very rudely replied: "In this country we have storms and this is normal". No apology, no empathy. Just that "We need to cover ourselves". So basically we got charged $150 for two rooms that we never even occupied. I never write negative reviews, especially for small business owners, but I make an exception to that in case of Amble due to total lack of empathy, lack of courtesy and overall rudeness displayed by the lady with whom I spoke. On the other hand, for our other room in Black Hills, SD that was booked on Airbnb, the host refunded us 100% of the amount without any questions and was extremely empathetic of our situation. I completely understand hotels, especially small family owned ones need to cover their basic costs, but to charge someone 100% when all roads leading to their property are closed due to a winter snowstrom, is just plain treachery and against all principles of friendly, family owned hotels.

In the middle of Medora, everything at walking distance. On arrival we received a very friendly welcome by the owners. They showed us our room which was great. Nice room with queen bed, airconditioning and bubble bath. Separate large bathroom with spacious shower. Breakfast restaurants close by. At night you do not hear a thing. Loved our stay, would stay here again.
