Right outside Yellowstone Park's west entrance. Booked this room on a family member's recommendation. Was a perfect choice. Close to restaurants and shopping. Nice clean quiet rooms. Would stay again.

Our photography group stayed at the Three Bear Lodge in February 2015. This was my first time staying at this lodge and it exceeded my expectations. My room was spacious, clean, charming in rustic furniture. The WiFi and TV had excellent service. After a long day in the national park it was a comfort to come back to my warm... More

Restaurant has excellent service & excellent food. Snowmobiling package we bought was a great value. We booked transport service from Bozeman airport & didn't need rental... More

My family stayed in Three Bear Lodge during early October last year. I treated my young son by booking one of the large themed rooms with a little 'cabin' for him to sleep in. I liked the room a lot and what it lacked in luxury, it made up for in charm. It was also extremely spacious, and good for... More

Had stayed in the motel section on a prior visit. We stayed in the main lodge and it was great. The King size room was ample in size. The bathroom was very clean and sizable. The bed was very comfy and the room was relaxing and well maintained. Add a pleasant and helpful staff and you have the perfect place... More

We really enjoyed staying there for one night. The welcome was warm and the room was super cosy. Very close to the Yellowstone National Park. We had a jacuzzi on the room that was pretty romantic even if we couldn't manage to make it work... Internet was working Ok. We will come back for sure :)

We enjoyed our stay and found a great facility and staff from check-in to checkout. Loved the decor and cleanliness. The hotel is also in a perfect location, just outside the West entrance to Yellowstone.

We stayed at the Three Bears on our family vacation to Yellowstone National Park. We stayed in the motel, not the main lodge, because the rooms are larger. Do not judge by the outside appearance! The inside was spacious and clean. It can be difficult to find a hotel room for our family of five where someone doesn't have to... More
