We travel to Sundance about once a month and always stay at this motel. The staff is very friendly and accommodating even when we have not made reservations in advance. The rooms are very clean and they keep the repairs up to date.

We stayed here for one night on our way to Denver. We did not know the area, so we ended up in Sundance tired, without many options and our Persian cat baby in tow. I was quite skeptical, since it did not look like our normal type of hotel, but being tired, decided to give it a try. What a... More

Excellent rate. Our room was very clean, comfortable beds, nice maid service and good towels, also and a nice large flat-screen TV. We came for 1-night stay to tour nearby Devil's Tower, but remained a second night because our experience was so good. Did not want to try to find another hotel/motel that night after a great day of hiking... More

You will find no greater hospitality than what we experienced here! The manager Ken went out of his way to make us feel special, starting with his offer to let us check in early so that we could fit our jaunt to Devils Tower in during the afternoon. He offered us maps and travel advice as well as just baked... More

Superb, Quaint, Clean, Friendliest, & the most Inexpensive Motel west of the Mississippi River and perhaps anywhere! Manager Ken treats "ALL" his customers like family! We come first! We so appreciated his hospitality and sincerity. If only 1/10th of the people in business were as friendly, kind & as down to earth as he is, what a better world we'd... More

My two night stay here was prompted when La Quinta jacked up their rates from $100 to $274 for Memorial Day weekend. $80 per night here. Well worth the extra drive from Rapid City. The staff was very friendly, attentive to my wishes and questions. Weather was rainy and raw outside. When I asked for help firing the heating unit,... More

Nicely maintained hotel managed by a very personable young man who bent over backward to make our stay satisfactory. Breakfast not part of their write up but they do have cold items. Recommended for anyone looking for a good bang for your buck.

Wonderful experience. Large, clean rooms, plush towels, quiet space. The owner lives on site with his family and he was most friendly and helpful. We will go back if we can work it out on our return journey. Breakfast simple but adequate. Nice

The Bear Lodge Hotel was a great place to stay! Extremely friendly staff, clean and comfortable, and had a little breakfast and coffee ready for us in the morning. We are driving from Montana to Ohio and the owner gave great recommendations for places to see on our way!!

He was very friendly an accommodating, giving us recommendations on places to eat as well. The motel itself is a smaller non chain type place with parking in the center... More
