After serendipitously stumbling into Dubois on our way to Yellowstone, a friend and I were greeted with yet another pleasant surprise: The Black Bear Inn. Liz and the entire family were so thoughtful and genuinely magnanimous. The room was clean and comfortable. The family is always striving to improve their inn and their hard work is apparent. Liz's sons even... More

The Inn isn't fancy, but it's very comfortable, clean, quiet and friendly. It's right off the highway and right on the river, and they serve s'mores every night :). We'll stay there again next time we come this way :). There is no TV, but the wifi worked great and they have many, many movies available to borrow.

We just loved our two nights here. Our room was cosy and quiet and had recently been refurbished. Liz made us feel thoroughly welcomed and you can tell she really puts a lot of effort into making the guests feel welcomed and at home. The location is excellent - located on the main street and easy walking distance to cafes,... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Black Bear Inn. We stayed for a week and enjoyed our trips to the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone tremendously. Liz and Matt were so nice and helpful. The Wind River flows right past the Inn and the fishing there is fabulous! There was even a Shoshone Nation Powwow in DuBois during our week there!... More

This was a fun place to stay if you want a different experience. After being on the road for a week, and checking in and out of hotels each night, it was nice to stay somewhere were I could have a conversation with the staff.

Stopped here on our way up to Yellowstone and booked last second. Liz was very accommodating and her sons even showed us around town. Great family run hotel. The room was clean and had hot water. There's even a fire pit in the back that borders a nice stream. Free s'mores. If I ever happen across Dubois again, this will... More

This is a neat place!! The rooms are a bit small, but the service is outstanding. And they have a fire pit by the river where you can make Smores!!! There's no TV, but everything else is great! It's an old hotel that is being remodeled room by room!!

The good news is the sheets were clean. Everything else is another story. Supposedly in the midst of redoing the rooms. Don't take one unless you know it has actually been redone. Seriously afraid to walk barefoot in the carpet. Also leaking around the toilet yuck.

We were taking a driving trip around Wyoming when my husband retired, and I wanted to stay in DuBois for one night because my father used to hunt in the area. It was a very interesting little town. The Inn was also very interesting and had a very homey feel to it!
