Older motel but fairly well kept and maintained. Must admit that we missed the presence of a television for news and entertainment at night since there's little to do in this small town of Dubois. It's near adequate restaurants that don't open early enough in the morning for early rising travelers on the way to Grand Tetons, Yellowstone or wherever. Six AM is the latest in our opinion. Staff here was very friendly and helpful and right on site.

You can see from my profile: I hate the neighboring Branding Iron Inn. In planning a family trip to Yellowstone, I picked a stay at Black Bear Inn based on reviews. Once COVID hit I had to do some rearranging and thought I had to settle with the awful neighbors. But a phone call to Black Bear changed all that! I spend some 20 minutes on the phone with the owner and she guaranteed us an even better room even though hotels.com said the place was fully booked. It was a heck of a trip. Forget the COVID scares, my mom has COPD and was not doing well at elevation. This part of the trip was tainted with that. But upon arriving at Black Bear we saw the owner cleaning some vehicles headlights. Loved the charm of the smores on Wind River but the owner offered us pizza, corn dogs, salad and more! After smores, my nephews played badminton and corn hole with some of the young helpers. Room was as quaint as any place I've ever stayed. Everyone seemed to sleep okay. The next morning we had to jet because of said COPD concerns. The owner not only gave us some useful medical advice but later called to check on my mom. No stranger does this in 2020. One final note: on the phone the first time we discussed the new military vehicle museum and that turned to the movie Taking Chance starring Kevin Bacon. Based on a true story, it's a movie about how the USMC handles the body of a fallen solider. Turns out, that marine is from Dubois, and his father had art hanging at the Black Bear Inn. So wasn't in the mood to watch much but I did have in my Taking Chance DVD on while at the motel. It's not a perfect place and my opinions of Dubois are scarred by the broken contract with the neighboring hotel and the medical situation. But Black Bear was a bit of light in a lot of darkness. Honestly, I have come to like certain chain hotels. Black Bear is definitely not a chain but I'd definitely stay there again.

my wife and I chose this hotel based on the reviews. The reviews did not disappoint. Great little place, very friendly, nice to sit by the river at night with a fire and just chat with others. In no way shape or form can you go wrong with this inn.

What a great week we had in Dubois! We used our inn as a hub to visit the Tetons, Yellowstone & the surrounding areas. This is our second time to visit. They treat us like family - and our kids are already talking about visiting again. We had so much fun around the fire pit, and playing outdoor games while enjoying S’mores. Black Bear Inn has a fun place to enjoy your time. Excelente!

The people at this place are wonderful. Felt at home the moment we pulled in. Rooms are as clean as my house.....everything you need is available. It’s a small roadside inn, but we love these. Liz, the owner is you best friend the minute you meet her. The town is darling, historic and friendly. If you travel the backroads like we do, this is a must stop kinda place!
