The inn is adorable. The owner, Liz, is so friendly and you can see her personality throughout the rooms, making it feel more like staying at a friend's house than staying in a motel. The rooms have teddy bears in them and other sweet touches. It's also right on both Main Street and the Wind River, so I could walk... More

This family-run motel offers great personalized service. Liz, the owner, has great recommendations for the area, including dining and shopping. We enjoyed several meals at places she recommended. The rooms are "homey" and comfortable at a good price. There is no TV service, but a TV and DVD player is in each room, with a large selection of DVD movies... More

I live 75 miles from Dubois but wanted to get away into the mountains for a day or two, and found the Tripadvisor reviews on the Black Bear Inn. It was the best value among rustic motels, and is on the main street of town so you can walk to different places. However, I was there the first week in... More

We will stay here anytime we travel this direction. As a matter of fact, even if just passing through we would stop and say hi even if not in need of lodging. Everyone made us feel welcomed and you just would not understand how welcomed unless you stay here. The rooms are clean and the beds were very comfortable. The... More

We loved our stay at the Black Bear Inn. Liz, her family, friends and staff made us feel incredibly welcome and as well as s'mores by the river they even gave us some dinner! Rooms were large and cosy and particularly like the rubber ducks. The only downside is that we stayed the one night. Thank you for your hospitality.

Staying at the Black Bear is like visiting a favorite aunt or grandma's vintage home from the cozy, thick towels and soft, sun dried sheets on the bed to real flowers growing in pots right outside your room. Liz has a campfire each evening on the riverbank where guests gather to share stories and make somemores against the comforting sound... More

I made a reservation for our friends from Germany, and they said they really enjoyed their stay. The staff was very friendly and the rooms were comfortable and clean. Thanks for making their stay with you so good.

We happened upon Dubois on our way home's the best from Yellowstone. It was an enchanting town in an absolutely gorgeous setting and we LOVED the bear. Friendly staff and such cute rooms right on the river. Can't wait to go back for an extended stay some day!

Can't say enough about how much I enjoyed my stay at the Bear. Liz and the kids are wonderful hosts. I really enjoyed sitting around the campfire and visiting with the other guest. This was just a one night stop for me on the way to Alaska. I do a month or so motorcycle trip every summer and will defiantly... More
