Annual Conference 

Hotel Room Block 

Medora is a charming, rustic, old-western town located two hours from Bismarck and approximately 30 minutes from Dickinson, North Dakota. The town is a mere four blocks, so everything is within easy walking distance.

This year’s Annual Conference will use meeting space in several buildings, primarily the Community Center, which is located near all four of the hotels we are using to accommodate the group. For reference, the Badlands Motel is the closest to the Community Center (right next door); the Elkhorn Quarters is furthest away (a 7-10 minute walk).

There are four hotels available at varying price ranges in Medora. Please refer to the information below to make reservations.

Rough Rider Hotel: $188.10+ per night (Currently Sold Out)
AmericInn: $189.90+ per night
Badlands Motel: $143.10+ per night
Elkhorn Quarters: $80.10+ per night

Please note: Government rates are not available; however, the rate at Elkhorn Quarters is below the prevailing government rate in North Dakota.
