The bath and bed linens had definitely seen better days and should have been replaced quite some time ago. The pillow cases made me wonder if they had even been changed and there was nothing underneath except for DEAD PILLOWS. It took 3 pillows to make one because they were so worn out. The washcloths were yellowed. The paper holders,... More

This hotel must be pretty close to just built. It still smells new (LOVE that). The desk clerk was very nice and helped with recommending places to eat for supper (Cassie's place and then also breakfast "Our Place across the street). They have laundry amenities, and very clean rooms. A very nice view of the mountains can be seen from... More

Great rooms, great shower. Beautiful view of the foothills and within walking distance of the rodeo. Western end of Cody ...away from the bustle of Cody. would stay there again. Just a short drive to the museums.

This place is just over 50 miles from the east entrance of Yellowstone atonal park. It was still a little pricey considering the distance from the park but is close to Cody Rodeo and the Old Trail Town in Cody. Our room was clean and spacious although no toiletries are provided other than soap and towels. A hair dryer is... More

We stayed in the apartment they own behind the Albertson's grocery store. It is pretty basic, but clean. Has 3 bedrooms and 1 1/2 baths. The kitchen has only limited equipment...no sharp knives at all. We stayed two nights there. It's in a good location for access to area sights. This place would be greatly be improved with a coat...

The hotel was clean and comfortable, there were extra pillows on the bed and plenty of towels in the bathroom. The office staff was very kind and helpful. There was a corral out back, pool and play equipment. It isn't fancy at all, but I would absolutely stay there again.

Big Bear is a convenient stop on the way to Yellowstone. The motel was clean and the beds were firm. Some of the rooms have covered parking for bikes right by your room. Make sure you bring shampoo, we only had soap in our room. The rooms are big with a rustic look. You can also bring your swim suit... More

Big Bear added a new 2 story building 3 years ago. We were on the top floor, room had vaulted ceiling, was very spacious and clean. Pool says "heated" although I would not say the water was warm, but about typical temperature. Located close to rodeo arena. Would stay again.
