“"Bear" bones motel”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Great place and clean but very basic. Out of town enough to be quiet and never heard anyone above or next door to our room. You will need to ask at the front desk for a blow dryer, as they aren't a standard in the rooms. Also the sheets are worn and didn't fit the mattress well but they were clean and fresh. Wifi was weak so I stuck to my own Verizon connection. For a night or two, this is worth every penny but don't expect much in amenities. FYI, the best breakfast in Cody is across the street.

Great price compared to other places in Cody. The room was outdated but was very clean. A great location for visiting Yellowstone & going to the rodeo in Cody. It's also across the street from a very yummy steakhouse.

The Big Bear if very accommodating and has made us feel very welcome. Jody and her husband do a great job of keeping the place clean, open, and friendly. Love the western log feel in the rooms and the open feeling of the rooms opening into a community court yard. Always very accommodating to myself and family!

This is a great family run and operated motel. You save a good bit of money staying here versus other places in town. The owner was very warm and friendly when we checked in. The buildings are a little old but very well kept. This is a great, simple place to stay! Make sure you visit the horses around back if the motel if you stay here.

Huge rooms and very nice front desk staff, all family I believe. Jody is an owner and is super nice and gave us a great rate. Make sure you walk behind the hotel to the stables and greet the horses and go even further to the edge of the cliff and check out the fantastic view of the river. I would recommend this hotel highly!!

We just love our location as do many guests. This one of the main reasons for our purchase of this great spot not down town but in the city limits and walk to rodeo/dinner Bill

I stayed here with my husband and two small children- It is just a basic room- no fridge or microwave- but the beds were really comfortable. We stayed on the top floor and had a great view of the sunset. The playground was fun- we never made it to the pool. Great location- just on the western edge of town so really easy to get to Wal-Mart then head to Yellowstone.

Room Tip: If you dont want noise from your neighbors- i would pick the upper floor or one of the units that ha...

We stayed here for 2 nights, rooms were clean and big. We stayed in both the sections of the hotel and would recommend both. Pool was awesome and perfect on a hot day. They also have a small playground. They have a laundry area for a reasonable fee $4 a load including soap. Owners were very nice and friendly. We will be back next time through!!

There are several things that make up a great motel/stay just the feel once you step on to our place I feel welcome and home as do our travelers, the guests are to thank for a large part of this as many visit the horses and enjoy them as well thanks Bill and Jody
