We loved this cute quaint hotel, you were treated like family as one of their hotel guests. Our big regret was we only stayed one night. The rooms were very clean and large. We had a second floor room facing the pool with the mountains in the backdrop. I highly recommend a second floor room. We truly enjoyed the one... More

My room has a microwave oven and refrigerator but there is no coffee maker. You have to get coffee at the office at 7:30am. There are two chairs with a small table. Plus, there is a dresser and night stand. I do not see any paint chips or scoff marks. This place is well maintained. Tonight(Saturday), there is a free... More

Advertised free music but just a guy playing country music outside the office. OK but you wouldn't pay for it. Clean and you get microwave and fridge. Expensive but near Yellowstone so you expect to pay more.

We work hard to provide clean, comfortable rooms and a memorable western experience with our cowboy entertainment, and free horse rides.

Friendly staff. Rooms were clean and good sized. Motorcyclists: GRAVEL parking lot. Geared towards families and would be an awesome place if traveling with one. Pricing seemed a little high compared to other motels we stayed at that were nicer, but I assume the proximity to Yellowstone commands the premium price. Note: Have breakfast at the place just across the... More

We booked a cabin and received a Queen room - actually worked or nicely except we had to force our kids to be more quiet than if we had a cabin. Clean and well appointed - charming Wild West feel. Family operated and it shows - a lot of care even down to the shower curtain. Stay here if ever... More

If you are looking for some budget stay near yellowstone with 2hr beautiful scenic drive and also for some good decent food everyday, this is the town. Awesome nightlife in the town with special events like Roadies. People at Big Bear Motel are very friendly and provide all information necessary.

This was a great experience! The motel decor and the surrounding beauty of the outdoors makes this a wonderful place to stay.
