Well kept courtyard motel popular with bikers. Clean room of adequate size. They have cats - always a good sign - which adds to the friendliness of the place. Only thing to add is perhaps a small breakfast for early starters as most places do't open until late at weekends.

My husband and I were travelling back from Alaska after a 3 week trip. It was dusk and we decided to find a hotel nearby. Sundance, Wyoming was the next town so we decided to give it a try. What an absolutely quaint town! It was like a step back in time. The Bear Lodge Motel is on the main... More

This hotel is conveniently located on the main road in Sundance and is run by very friendly people who clearly care about the property. The room was spacious and comfortable, not to mention very clean and orderly. The owners also gave recommendations on food and easy to follow directions to devils tower. Would definitely stay here again.

We were on a three week road trip with no plans or direction. . We picked Sundance out of a hat to stay. We called before we left Montana, and we got a reservation. We ended up running late, and the office closes at 10pm. We called, and they said they would be happy to stay open later than usual... More

We were pleasantly surprised at our stay at Bear Lodge. It was half the money as the chain hotels right off the freeway. You had to drive into town but it was worth it. It was old but rooms were freshly painted and clean. Sheets were crisp, towels were better then other hotels. Across the street was a quaint cafe.... More

We were on our way to Devils Tower and decided to stay at this property for one night. It had generally good reviews on TripAdvisor, so we called ahead and reserved a room. It is a family run business. It is an older motel property. You enter your room from the exterior versus interior hallways. Our room was nice sized... More

A great value in Sundance. Wonderful staff, comfortable bed, good hot water pressure. Very nice of the hotel to offer Mud Towels to guests who may need to clean off boots and such. Too bad that the town does not have more restaurants.

Clean and comfortable lodging in a small town. The facility is dated, but that is the case with all lodging in this immediate area; there's not enough traffic to get the national chains to build here. The owners were very friendly and helpful. They provided us with an exceptionally accurate map of the Black Hills that we used exclusively for... More

This is a good, basic hotel with a friendly, helpful staff. The hotel is clean and also has a guest laundry. Our room did not have a hair dryer or shampoo. The price is very reasonable, so we were okay with that. The owner helped us with restaurant options and also travel routes the next day. The hotel is an... More

This motel is privately owned. The owner was very friendly, helped us with restaurant information, and with directions and an area map to our next stop. There is nothing fancy about the motel, but it was clean, quiet, and well worth its cheap rate. They do not serve breakfast, but there is a very-good diner right across the street.
