To help ease a housing crunch and provide oil workers with a place to stay, the Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation will keep two additional properties open through the winter months.

"It's kind of as a way to help our neighbors, too and extend our season as well," said Annette Schilling, former TRMF public relations and marketing director. "We just want to make sure people have lodging. We've been hearing a lot of stuff, too and want to do what we can since we have those things open."

John Motley, TRMF chief operating officer, said 13 rooms, each a double occupancy, will be available at the Parkway Motel in Belfield.

Generally used by the Medora Musical cast, the Parkway rooms have a one-week minimum stay and can be booked through April, Motley said.

Housekeeping services, most likely twice a week, will also be provided at the Parkway, Motley said.

One portion of the Badlands Motel, in Medora will remain open.

With 25 units available to rent, rooms at the Badlands can be booked on a nightly basis, Motley said.

"In Medora, we would have food service available, too," Motley said. "For example, we're going to be closed for lunch, but if I saw a need that people needed box lunches or something like that, then we would do that, too."

The Rough Riders Hotel will also be open for its first winter season.
