The Bear Lodge is most certainly a great atmosphere with very friendly people. We came out to visit and to my surprise it felt like home. I recommend this place for anyone who is in or close to this area. Also, very fair prices.

Excellent Lodge and small town hospitality. Close to Mt. Rushmore and Devils Tower. Very clean and great prices. Laundry available and parking enclosed. The Bear Lodge has a variety of interesting displays from the area. The family owners are especially nice and helpful providing a safe, relaxing atmosphere. I highly recommend The Bear Lodge when visiting the Sundance area.

We had traveled from Yellowstone and going to Devils Tower. The Bear Lodge Motel was clean and comfortable. The towels were much fluffier than other motels. The parking is interesting being enclosed in the motel. It was time to do laundry and there are two washers and two dryers on site. For the price, around $65, it was very worth... More

The Bear Lodge was not our first choice of motels in Sundance but we were very pleasantly surprised with the reasonable rates as well as the cleanliness and comfort of the room. Having read the other reviews on TripAdvisor I'd say they are mostly spot on. Especially the positive ones. The only other comment is that breakfast is not furnished... More

This is one of the cleanest hotels I have been in for awhile. Excellent customer service. Very helpful owners. They have a great movie library for the guests to watch.

Nice staff, great price, decent rooms, great soft towels, and right on the main road through town. Saved a bunch of money compared to the other chain properties in town. I will definitely stay here again.

Needing a place for the night, I was tempted to go with the chain by the highway for almost 2x the price. Instead, using Trip Advisor, I chose this place downtown. Very charming, very clean (the bathroom was immaculate) and the local owners were very friendly and helpful. Being downtown, I was able to walk to Main St for a... More
