I wasn't expecting too much on west yellowstone because it is a small town. This is a not too bad choice because it's just 400 yards to the doorway of yellowstone park. The service is not bad. I went this hotel at early of May, it was snowing we have to stay at hotel all day. Restaurant of hotel wasn't... More

Only spent one night here at the end of the season, and I can’t wait to come back some day – if only Yellowstone wasn’t so far away ! I loved the Three Bear Lodge – it had a bit of character about it, and on top did all the basics well. Check in was quick and the front desk... More

The hotel has a great location, the only room they had was in an alleyway down the side of the hotel. We were a bit hesitant when we saw the access but the room was good and clean. It had a fridge and coffee maker and comfortable bed. We used the restaurant and had a nice meal, had to wait... More

If you're looking for a hotel close to Yellowstone's west gate, look no further. My husband and I (and our 7 month old daughter) stayed here on our cross country military move. We explored Yellowstone and spent a night on the second floor of the lodge. The room was very spacious and very clean. We were impressed with the "mountain"... More

We stayed at the Three Bear Lodge for one night in mid-October. We flew in to Idaho Falls, and I thought this was a good choice to start our Yellowstone vacation. It is wonderfully located about 1 mile from the West Entrance to the park (probably less than a mile). You cannot beat the location in West Yellowstone. We had... More

Late fall is a great time to visit the park.... We basically had the place to ourselves and the Three Bear Lodge provided a great place for quick access as the west entrance is about a mile away. Our stay was after the summer season and just before the winter season so the rates were outstanding. We had a smaller... More

Thanks for commenting on your stay here at the Three Bear Lodge! Coming to visit the park in October is usually an ideal time for our guests! The park is still open, most of the crowds have thinned down, and the rates at that time are lower than our summer rates. We hope to see you on your return trip... More

We stayed during the winter and it was perfect. We had a great room and the staff was very nice. We took a snow coach tour into Yellowstone that left right from our lodge. The winter is a really beautiful time to stay in the area. The restaurant had good food.

Definitely the best place to stay in West Yellowstone. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. They all recognized us and spoke when we came through. The room was beautiful and very large. The furnishings were, in part, salvaged from the original building. The bed was most comfortable, the pillows were a bit soft for our taste but we asked... More

We stayed here for three nights while visiting Yellowstone Park. Our room was in the motel part which is attached to the lodge. The room was clean, comfortable and was a good size, though that was expected since we opted for the in-room Jacuzzi. We were able to park outside our door which made loading and unloading the car quite... More

Can't get any closer to the west gate than this. Clean, comfortable rooms with a lot of history and ambiance. Stayed in the economy rooms in the back portion but still felt like we were in the original lodge.
