We stayed here on a Saturday night so Sunday dawned and it was difficult to find breakfast. The rooms were reasonable and clean. We had a room with knotty pine furniture. It was quiet and wifi reasonable. We managed a bite to eat at a fuel station across the way. The manager was very helpful. As Australians apart from the... More

If every I wanted to show my 18 year-old daughter what travel was like when I was a kid in the 1950s, and have it be a pleasant experience, it was realized at the Big Bear Motel in Cody. The staff was helpful, courteous, efficient, and friendly. We arrived on the eve of a snow storm (the earliest since the... More

Liked this place from the start. The western look was nice and seeing the horses at the stable added to the out west visit. Good advice from the front desk for restaurants. Neat western look inside and out of the room. We didn't plan on spending a lot of time in the room, we wanted a reasonably priced room and... More

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...
