This is a great place to stay. Close to the West Gate into Yellowstone (try to get to gate b/4 8:00am) We stayed 7 nights in July. We had a room in the motel portion-overlooked the pool. Did not notice that much noise from the pool area at all. Rooms were decorated w/recycled-repurposed items from the original motel portion that... More

This is a great place to stay for a family vacation to Yellowstone IF you can't stay in the park. We had a room in the main building that was spacious, clean, etc. The motel-like rooms associated with the hotel did not appear as spacious. Great food at the restaurant. You essentially get a free breakfast with the room each... More

We stayed at Three Bear Lodge for 4 nights in July. The room was clean, and very spacious. It had a refrigerator and microwave. The airconditioner worked very well. We had a choice of continental breakfast or several dollars off a full breakfast. Restaurant is attached to the lodge and is fairly good. We were in room 103, in the... More

The location is convenient, (downtown) and the lobby is nice. The restaurant was pretty good (I would eat there again). Our particular room was unlike anything I have ever stayed in. Our room looked right into an enclosed pool area. A bit noisy. I think the carpet needed cleaning because everytime I walked on it, I could feel gravel on... More

The motel is clean and adequate with amenities you don't have from in park lodges, e.g. microwave, fridge and wifi. They gave us breakfast coupons in their restaurant, which offers very nice dining experience. Service is good and smooth and send us extra sheets right away. Close to West Yellowstone visit center. You can attend their night program easily. A... More

Booked here when no rooms were available in the park. Staff was nice and rooms were clean. We stayed outside they main hotel and it was very quiet. Breakfast at the 3 Bear was included and enjoyed the atmosphere and food.

I was very happy at how close we were to the Yellowstone west entrance. We stayed two nights here and has a good nights rest. I was very happy with how quiet the rooms were. Our neighbor said that his child was up all night crying and we did not hear a thing (thank goodness, I was tired.) My girls... More

We had stayed here in 2001when we traveled to Yellowstone with out kids. We returned on this trip as a couple and were just as pleased. We were glad to learn that they had rebuilt after a fire in the mid 2000s. The front desk staff is friendly, welcoming and made good recommendations for eating establishments. The room was large...

The Three Bear Lodge is a nice motel in West Yellowstone. There is a lodge part and a motel part. We stayed in then motel part. The motel part is older, but still very nice and comfortable. We were so happy to be able to park our car right outside our door. The hotel has an outdoor pool and our... More

Convenient to the West Entrance of Yellowstone Park. Friendly staff, free breakfast at the hotel restaurant and a quaint stay. Our room was perfect for our family of 5- it had 2 queens and one twin bed and it had a sweet 3 bears theme. We would highly recommend this hotel for families traveling to Yellowstone! Only minor issue is... More
