Room was awful. It was old and dated. And I don't mean it had character. There was mold on the ceiling in the bathroom. The carpet was dirty. The drapes were not attached at the top completely. Even though we paid for 2 nights, we only stayed 1. No refund was allowed although we let them know right away that... More

We stayed 2 nights in a motel room. Room was of good size. Beds were comfy. Microwave and fridge were great for breakfast as not included in price. We were given $3 coupons if we wanted but we chose to do our own instead. Location is great for town access and for Yellowstone itself which is less than a mile... More

We literally drove out the exit of Yellowstone and right onto the street where the Three Bear Lodge is located. It couldn't have been easier to find! And once we were there we could walk to every restaurant, shop, and attraction we wanted to see. Because we were only there one night, we probably didn't get the full experience of... More

Highly recommend the lodge. Room cleanly. Bedding, carpet, shower/tub/shower curtain (side note: curtain pleasant design) clean. Small fridge, coffee pot, microwave oven clean. Housekeeping to be commended. Location - main street near shops, well-stocked supermarket. Front desk staff very helpful and airport shuttle service on time and cordial. Coffee available in the lobby all day. Cons: A/C slightly loud but... More

Stayed here one night on our trip through Yellowstone. The hotel was nice with clean rooms. The food at the lodge was good. We liked West Yellowstone much more than we like Jackson WY. We did not stay in the lodge but in the 1 story portion behind the main lodge. That makes for an inconvenient walk to the pool... More

Thanks for commenting on your stay here at the Three Bear Lodge! West Yellowstone is a wonderful base to set up your trek into Yellowstone National Park. The town rests up against the West Gate itself, and we still have that small town Montana hospitality! We are so glad we were able to meet your needs here as well as... More

Check-in was efficient and friendly. We stayed in one of the rooms in the motel section. It was room 308. Much larger than I expected with a vanity outside the bathroom so two can get ready at once. The bathroom was nicely remodeled and very clean. Nice tub and shower. Mini fridge. Microwave. Especially liked the new heater and air... More

We stayed in one of the Goldilocks rooms, it was costly but sleeps 5 adults and 1 very small kid. The king, queen and twin bed were normal, the "youth" bed is like a toy, suitable for someone around 4' tall or less. Fortunately we brought a sleeping bag, and they sent up extra blankets and pillows for the teenager... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Lodge constructed in 2009 and the Motel rooms remodeled in 2011. From the moment you approach this impressive Lodge, you will realize it is no ordinary hotel. From the massive volcanic rock, log, and beam exterior, through the dramatic lobby and reclaimed materials in the common areas — you will know you are in for a unique experience. As you open the door to your spacious and comfortable room you will be enraptured by the handmade furniture crafted with reclaimed wood from the original 1932 building.Outdoor swimming pool is open during the summer months. Be sure to stop next door and experience our famous Three Bear Restaurant for breakfast and dinner. ... more   less
