We arrived after 10pm and had to use the door bell. The man that answered and checked us in was very friendly and had extra pillows for us like we requested when we reserved our room online. The lobby had hot cocoa and coffee, and I would have liked to spend some time relaxing in it and enjoying all the... More

I have to stay over in Sundance occasionally for work. I read good reviews of this motel and thought I would give it a shot. Hair was on toilet seat and in sink and I'm not 100% sure that the sheets were clean. Top it off with furniture that is at least 50 years old (or more) and you do... More

This is the first time I felt Trip Advisor let me down. I can't believe all the excellent ratings here. The room was small and very dated. (Like 50's dated.) Very small bathroom. The bed sagged in the middle and only two pretty flat pillows. I give you that it was clean. We got there late and left early --... More

Dear Jules71, My sincere apology that you were not satisfied with our small bathrooms, nor with our staff since you checked in late and checked out early (Which other travelers raves about). You are right that we are old but not old as 50's. I am glad you found our room clean. But we are sorry that we were not... More

We stayed at the Bear Lodge Motel when we were in Sundance on a hunting trip. Rooms were basic motel rooms. They were clean. The staff was very accommodating. I would stay there again if I was in Sundance.

Stayed there this weekend for two nights with my family. Nice clean rooms, beds made and room cleaned for second night. Hot shower and very clean bathroom, plenty of towels and friendly staff made this a great stay. Its in walking distance from restaurants and bars in Sundance. For a great steak and atmosphere stop in at the Longhorn Steakhouse.
