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

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

We pulled in late at night and the staff made accommodations for late night arrival. Very very clean room 133. Spacious, updated room. Bathroom was spotless!! Friendly staff. Parking might be a bit tight and we had bikes on top of our can and had to remove to get in but great experience anyway!!

Motel was fine, town is a bit on the small side for more than a night stay tho. Longhorn restaurant nearby was good. People were very friendly. Well placed for Devils Tower. 200 character minimum for some of these reviews is a bit harsh.
