This is an average motel at an above average price. Perhaps Cody during the pre-4th of July season is a pricey market. The facilities were reasonably clean, but no breakfast, no in room coffee pot. The grounds were gravel!

Good value and great location. Near the rodeo grounds on the edge of town. Very quiet and excellent service. Rooms are medium size and clean. Has all the basics yet simple. Easy access and parking. Small swimming pool and close to food and shopping.

We stayed at this motel for 3 nights. It's in a good location for day trips to Yellowstone. When we looked into motels in Yellowstone they were all booked up, plus much more expensive, so we were glad to find Big Bear motel. My thoughts pretty much reflect what the other reviews say. The room was clean although a bit... More

We stayed two nights here. The room was clean and comfortable. We were happy to have the small fridge and microwave in the room. We went to the grocery store and were able to save money from not eating out for a couple of meals.

Our one night stay here was a decent deal for the area. We were passing through on our way to Yellowstone and needed an inexpensive stay. I prefer old school drive up motel rooms with each room having its own outdoor entrance. Big Bear was obviously a well maintained place but a bit rough around the edges, literally. The pinewood...

We were to spend a night in Cody on our way out of Yellowstone to Sturgis. We found this place for the three of us. I called the hotel and they suggested a newer room with bunk beds. It was a huge room and can accommodate five easily. And with moving space etc. It is a motel, looks like one... More

Rooms were very clean and even though they were fully booked we did not hear any noise from next door, slamming doors or people walking past our room. We had a room on the second floor with a great view of the mountains. Room was very basic, TV was small but the price was about $70 less than other hotels... More
