We booked this hotel in a website for our road trip, and maybe we made a mistake. It was the most expensive hotel in our route, but we booked it because all the other options on the internet were more expensive and we worried. When we arrived to Cody we noticed that it was full of places that didn´t show up in our Internet search and it was availability all over the place. So, our opinion of our hotel is based in a very high rate and the fact that this is just a very correct motel by the road. The room is a little outdated but clean. Our room had a small fridge and a microwave.
However, they didn´t offer shampoo in the bathroom, only soap (again, it was the only place in the whole road trip that did this), the wifi worked really badly, it kept disconnecting us every 15 minutes or so, and no coffee machine in the room (they had coffee in the lobby in the morning).
So, yes, it is an ok place, but I wished I had paid half of what I did.

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 The room was outdated but was very clean.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.
