“Large spotless rooms”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Stayed 3 nights in September, 2013. Room was spacious and very clean. Avoid eating dinner at the restaurant, it was ok but nothing special and a little pricey. Breakfast good. My only issue was the front desk staff. They were not rude but not terribly helpful either. A simple smile would have been great. One girl could not even speak to customers without resting her head on her hand. Must have been tired. Lisa was the only exception. She was helpful, pleasant, smiled and seemed to actually enjoy her job. It's a service industry and staff needs to take the extra step. Otherwise I would stay again and there was nothing negative about the property.

Room Tip: Don't miss the grizzly and wolf discovery center around the corner. It does not dissapoint. A...

Spent one night and was pleased overall but not blown away. The staff is friendly and helpful but the accommodations seemed a little tired. Could be because of the location and time of year and it was not ragged or dirty. Just a nice place to spend the night. Had a drink in the bar and everyone was friendly and courteous and the crowd was sparse. It is probably very busy during the high season because it looks like it could accommodate conventions.

Breakfast was a buffet and was GREAT! Lots of variety and fresh as could be. I saw the manager checking the temperature of the food several times to make sure it had not been there too long and was the proper temp. I appreciated that.

I would go back there again.

We stayed in the motel section of Three Bears in early September! Would love to have stayed in the lodge with a king size bed but they were full. The motel was nice and we could walk to everything. Had drinks at the lounge and breakfast at Three bears resturant, very hearty breakfast and fast service! Overall our experience was very good would recommend this to all!!! The only issue was the air conditioner did not seem to keep the motel room cool, we just opened the window, glad it wasn't the middle of a hot summer!

Stayed here when I attended the IFFF Fly Fishing Fair. It was right across the street from the Union Pacific Hall which was the location for the fair. Walked across the street and into the fair! Couldn't beat it. It's also less than a mile to the West entrance of Yellowstone Park. The rooms are average in size but really clean and comfy. One issue was the TV. You would think with satellite the picture would be clearer. The staff is super helpful and friendly. A bonus is you get a card good for $3 off breakfast for every night you stay. It's nice touch. See my write up on the restaurant in another review.

We got to West Yellowstone later one night. Tried two other hotels with no luck. Went to Three Bears Lodge hoping they would have a room! Got the last one available, the Goldilocks Suite!
Staff were very friendly and gave us coupons for the Three Bears restaurant that was also fantastic!!!
The room was so cute! The kids loved it! A little baby bed, a medium size bed & a large bed.
Plus a king bed in a separate room (for Mommy & Daddy bear ;) )
Plus a balcony! It was an all around great place to stay and would go back again.
Only downfall was no elevator. But we managed with kids & luggage.
I would highly recommend this hotel and the restaurant just a few steps out the front door. :)

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.
