For the price, $116, for one night this motel offers very little. Really worn out bedding, very thin pillows, mattress pad that didn't cover, worn out linens. Entry lock that was difficult to use, no telephoneor phone book, worn out old TV, dusty gravel parking lot. Desk attendant said that they would have coffee in the lobby at 6:30 am,... More

This is the worst motel we have ever stayed in. Very small room. Barly enough room to walk around the beds. When you walk in you are in the bathroom. Carpet and linolium old, worn out, and dirty. You can see light around air conditioner and door. No phone. Soap is the only thing you get in the bathroom. If... More

Good grief! I read some of the reviews of this motel and didn't know what to expect! We were looking for an inexpensive place to stay for one night and this motel is fine. Yes, the parking lot is rocky and dusty, yes it's very rustic in decor, yes the toiletries are.......soap. But the manager was great - he replaced... More

We stayed in the East suite-it was spacious. It's not new, but the place really has character you won't find at large chain hotels. Pony rides in the evening if you have younger chidren, a decent pool, and comfortable lounge chairs outside of the rooms to relax in. We would stay there again!

I was dubious about staying at this motel, but my daughter wanted to ride a horse in the arena in back of the motel, and this is a unique feature offered by no other motel in Cody, and so we booked 3 nights there. We're glad we did. My daughter got her horse ride, and a had a blast, and... More

People who run hotel are cordial. But this place was the worst motel we have stayed in for many, many years. The huge parking lot is dirt and rocks, so it's very dusty. Rooms open up right on this dust. The entire place is worn out and doesn't look to ever had an upgrade in decades. The furniture in our... More

Well, the Big Bear Motel was a horrible stop for us. Out of the four of us in the room I think the most sleep that anyone had was about 3 hours. All of us were kept awake by a whistling noise that was being made by the wind coming through our window. We also had a huge gap in... More

We stayed in the Big Bear Motel in Cody, WY for one night during a three-week driving trip in the western US. I read such glowing reviews of the Big Bear. Privately owned, friendly people, homey and ecclectic . . . oh, how could the internet have steered me so wrong? Of all the places we stayed during that three-week... More

This is a motor lodge probably built in the 70's or 80's. It is in an excellent location just west of Cody, very near the Cody Stampede. Beautiful views of local mountains. Our room was VERY small -- just enough room for 2 double beds and a small table and dresser. Old decor but not dirty. Nothing special. Stay here... More
