Three Bears Lodge has a choice of lodge or motel rooms. We chose the motel. This is single story (no one stomping around overhead) with a 1960's sort of feel. Our room (#509) was quite large with twin beds, a microwave and refrigerator. The Three Bears scored high on the big three: clean room, comfortable bed, good shower. The internet access was fast and free. The room was quiet with good blackout curtains. We ate breakfast and dinner in the lodge restaurant several times and found the service and food good. We slept well for three nights and would happily stay here again.

We stayed at the 3 Bear Lodge this September and thought it was a nice place. It's a bit outdated and seemed to smell a bit musty, but overall it was VERY convenient, the people there were very nice, and it was clean. We recommend staying there - it's a great price and location.

We stayed her 2 nights as part of a Titan Tour to Yellowstone. Terrific room with lovely big comfy beds and little bears etched into the woodwork. Only downside was the fact that although it was a big bathroom the washbasin was in the bedroom. Bit off putting if you just wanted a good wash as opposed to a shower! The attached restaurant was very good. We had our breakfast and evening meals there on both days. They were very busy but service was good. Great salad bar and good choices. I would highly recommend staying here.

Location is the biggest plus for this place. 10 mins walk to the IMAX, 2 mins drive to the west entrance. Employees are extremely courteous and helpful. Breakfast was great at the restaurant. They also provided us 3$ off coupon/ adult for the breakfast, which was pretty nice. The rooms were OK. Clean, nice comfortable bed. However, it needs some serious renovation. Half the plug- points were not working. One of the light was not working. The microwave is in a poor state. If you try to use the microwave for more than 10 minutes, it just shuts down. We had to wait until the microwave cools off before we can use them, which was pretty inconvenient. Overall, if you are lucky and get a better- shaped room, i would recommend this place.

We stayed one night before we entered Yellowstone Park. The room was fine and served the purpose. We were in the hotel part of the lodge and the room was clean. A fridge came in handy and the location is right around the main streets. The front desk was very friendly and the rates were also friendly. Yes we would stay here again.

A lovely lodge with an interesting history . . . take time to read the information posted around the hotel lobby. Very comfortable stay. We had room 212, a large suite with a bed and table and chairs in the main room, a separate bedroom with a king bed and a small log cabin front in a nook with two beds, one child size, one bath. (And a shelf with 3 bowls, a wooden spoon and a box of Oatmeal, all fitting the Three Bear theme.) One bathroom but a sink outside. Would be great for a family. hOf course the location is superb so near the entry to Yellowstone Park and the Wolf and Grizzly Discovery Center. Had a good breakfast, very reasonable priced, in their restaurant.

Nice spot for larger families! My 3 kids were so happy to see a big room (3 queens) after being squished in one hotel room form several nights. Nice pool and hot tub , front staff were very helpful. Great breakfast in restaurant (give coupons at check-in so its practically free). It's very close to West entrance of Yellowstone so easy in/out. Don't miss the Grizzly & Wolf Center in W. Yellowstone.
