Great place to stay in Sheridan. Clean comfortable rooms. No TVs, which is great! This is a historical hotel, and is very nicely setup. Modernized bath and HVAC in the rooms, but old world vibe and architecture! Loved it!
Sheridan Inn had a lot of history in one place. With no TV's, it was easy for the family to play board games that were in the rooms and each of the common areas per floor. You often run into other guests in those areas for interesting conversations. We had several rooms, one had a claw foot bath and the other room has a stand up shower only. Some people might want to request one over the other. One of our rooms had issues with AC and it was quickly resolved by the staff. There are no microwaves or refrigerators in the rooms. So don't bring back left overs to the room and expect to store and reheat then later. This was not a problem for us. The included morning breakfast was a bit sparse for selection, but suitable for a quick bite. Other more breakfast purposed places in town are within walking distance and better for a full breakfast experience. I recommend snacking at the inn, but eating elsewhere.
The staff was friendly and made us feel at home. We arrived on a quiet evening so the woman behind the front desk showed us the historic bar (closed temporarily) and gave us a tour of the ladies social room and the ballroom. Afterwards we enjoyed fresh baked cookies by the fire and read up on Buffalo Bill.
We stayed here for two nights just this past weekend for a bike race that was taking place in town. Everything about our stay was fabulous, the hotel was very easy to find, and nicely situated v close (1 block) from Main Street. The staff were incredibly helpful, telling us about the history of the hotel, storing our bikes, baking cookies (and extra when we missed them one night), and just generally being superb. The room was a great size and the bathroom was modern and comfortable! I'd definitely stay there again (Sheridan is a really marvelous place) and i'm going to be recommending this hotel to everyone! Thanks folks!
