My husband and I, first visited Big Bear Motel in 2010. Cody is about 50 miles from the east entrance of Yellowstone. The drive is beautiful, travelling through the Absaroka Mountains. The rock formations are beautiful. We have been in Yellowstone 4 times, always stop in Cody and stay at Big Bear. Last fall when we were in Yellowstone for... More

I stayed here in the summer because it was the best I could afford. The price was right and the room was clean. I did have a couple of minor maintenance issues, but nothing overwhelming. The hotel is clean but in need of a good remodel, as in upgraded bathroom and more comfortable beds. Of course that would raise the... More

We have stayed at the Big Bear each of the last three years. We travel the area in early July for our annual visit to Yellowstone. The Motel is owned and operated by a Family who takes great pride in offering affordable accommodations in a very pricey town. We have always been treated like a guest and the entire atmosphere...

I was traveling by myself to pick up a dog at the Cody Animal Shelter so I needed an inexpensive place to spend the night with my dog. This hotel served the primary need and not much else. The room was clean and stocked with a microwave and little fridge. But, no phone and the lamp between the two queen... More

Thanks for the review, I guess we get spoiled in Wyoming about being in a safe place. This is why we enjoy Wyoming there is not a need for protection although we do live on site if you ever feel there are security issues please let me know.

If you need a place to stay and want it at a good price this is a good place to stay. The hotel has microwave and a baby fridge.... I stayed here in the winter and you could hear the wind howling all night. Nice steak restaurant across the street and a outside museum next door.

Hubby and I stayed here one night on our way back to CA. It was clean and around $70. Clean and comfy, no frills, coffee was available in the office in the morning and they offered free wifi. They have some unique gifts for sale in the office, including buffalo horns

I would recommend this place "overall." I had to stay an extra day in town due to weather, and wanted something cheap. It was off-season, and I was offered a rate even a few dollars lower than the one I researched well and stayed at for a week! It is located close to the outskirts of the town,and on the... More

We hit Cody on a three week trip through the region. We had been mixing our stays between camping and modest hotels, and since it was really warm weather for Wyoming fall day, A/C seemed appropriate. After checking out several places that looked like they might fit our cheapskate needs, only to get tourist season prices and some rude folks,... More

The front office people were exceptional, the room was big, clean and quiet, so what else to expect from a simple motel? Perhaps somewhat lower rates, but mine was not so bad, as some AARP people who checked in just before me paid more for a less comfortable location...
