We came up to fish and were looking for a decent budget ( for Cody in the summer) hotel and the Big Bear was it. It was clean and the staff were very helpful. Its a bit out of town so you will have to drive to do most anything. They also allow pets which is another reason we stayed.... More

I loved this motel. Check in was quick and friendly. I loved the location on the far side of town so you aren't right in the mix of everything but a quick couple minute drive to everything in Cody. You can see the mountains from your door. We had a king size bed and it was super comfortable. I mean... More

We really liked this motel. Our family plus 2 dogs enjoyed our stay. We will stay here again when we return to Cody. Cute western style, not super expensive, everything was clean. Location was perfect. Away from the rush and noise of the center of town.

This is a no frills place to stay. Our 3-generation family of 16 stayed in 4 rooms. The motel was clean, the rooms were spacious, and the management was super kind. The manager called a local restaurant and made reservations for us when we checked in. The mountain view was lovely from the west-facing rooms. It is very close to... More

Very clean and spacious rooms, at a great rate compared to other motels in the area. We had room #1 and the large window in our room provided a gorgeous view of the mountains! (BONUS!!!) The rooms appear to have been recently updated. The bed was very comfortable. The room included a microwave and mini fridge. The property also has... More

Taking a family va-ca with your family and then toss in a few nephews & your Mother-in-Law and it can be a logistical nightmare. Lucky for me (and my hair color) we found the Big Bear Motel. They had a large family sized room that fit us all comfortably. Some reviews noted problems with WiFi but at any given time... More

VERY poor experience here. We booked a family room online with two queens and a bunk bed, but when we showed up they upcharged us because we had kids with us. Then to top it off, the sheets weren't clean and had blood on them. We had to go to the front desk and get a new pair and change... More

We to agree with this traveler we had a terrible experience as well with him, although his wife was pleasant, Guest shows up with wrong amount of persons. We feel obligated to make sure everyone person is in a bed and comfortable. And yes we do charge per person as does all other lodging facilities. The wife came to the... More

I chose this motel primarily for its proximity to Walmart, Yellowstone and Rodeo next door. The room was kept clean despite being a smoking room. (You can choose a non-smoking facility). It was on the ground floor, so it was convenient to get to your car trunk to get your belongings.

Great bed but a regular, Clean room, cheap towels, Super nice owner. Easy access to Cody. Heated pool a great addition for kids. Rooms relatively quiet. Rooms could use some updating on single story side.

I try to give motels I stay a positive review but I expected better and average is the best i can do for this motel. Loud air conditioner constantly cycling on and off all night.

Hey thanks for riding through, we do offer to fill your large travel coolers for $1.75 we feel this is very reasonable and keeps some people from abusing the system. So you can always go buy three or so bags of ice down the street if that makes you feel better Bill More
