“3 nights at Three Bear Lodge”
Reviewed 2 June 2013

Summary:
Stayed in a two room suite in the "newer" section. Comfortable, clean room. Housekeeping was generous with towels, soaps, lotions and shampoos. Very SLOW WiFi with outdated log-in page. Location is within walking distance of many West Yellowstone shops and restaurants and very close to the entrance of Yellowstone National Park. The restaurant associated with Three Bear Lodge served a very good breakfast (a $2 discount coupon for each hotel night stay, for each guest was provided by the front desk) and the restaurant staff (Karen) was exceptionally friendly and helpful.

Additional details:
Most of the people that I've encountered in the Yellowstone National Park area service industry this past week have been very to exceptionally friendly and helpful (4-5 out of five). The front desk staff at Three Bear Lodge was not unfriendly, but not exceptionally warm.

When we arrived, Three Bear Lodge was just preparing for summer tourist season. The pool was empty and the hot tubs were clean but way too hot (felt like hotter than 110 degrees F). When I spoke with the front desk about it, they said that the hot tubs were normally set at 104 F but that no one was available to check or make an adjustment until the next day. When I checked back the next afternoon, I was informed that the temperature had been reset to 102 F. The hot tub was a lot more comfortable from that point on.

Room Tip: Second floor, newer section room was quiet.

Green Features: Recycling receptacles were easy to find. Motion detecting, energy saving automatic light switches were installed in lobby restrooms.

My adult daughter and I took a trip to Yellowstone (something on my bucket list). We chose the Three Bear Lodge for our stay. We were very pleased with its very close location to both town restaurants, shops and the entrance to the park.

The lodge room was large, modern, comfortable and still had a rustic feel (in an appropriate way). The staff was friendly. Des pite previous revuiews about the restaurant, we found the restaurant and lounge to be very good with reasonable prices.

I would not hesitate to recommend to our friends to stay here when they visit this area. If we get to go back, we will return to the Three Bear Lodge.

Also Kim at See Yellowtone (sister tour company) was awesome. Competent, friendly and very knowledgeable about the wildlife and the park itself.

It was okay , did have a little smell at first, but when they cleaned the room next day it smelled better, smelled liked they used air freshener after they cleaned.. Bed was comfortable. Rooms were average size or little bigger the room was kind of worn looking but clean. Hair dryer went out because it sounded very used when plugged it in making a weird sound but had my own so no problem. Breakfast was good in the restaurant did not eat lunch or dinner there.
we stayed 4 nights from May 13, 2013 to May 17 ,2013. I might stay there again if we ever are going to the area again.

I went there with some friends for three days in November 2012. Rooms are clean and the location is just perfect for visiting the National Park. It was very quiet at that time of the year and we spend every day in Yellowstone NP. So we came back at around 7-8pm to relax in the hot tubs

Great place to stay and just a short distance (less than a mile) to the west entrance to Yellowstone National Park. Rooms were large and well decorated with a bear themes throughout. The restaurant next door was good as well.

We were there March 7/8/9 for a snow coach trip into Old Faithful. We were in the new lodge building, which was very nice with large rooms, with the hand made furniture. We had no complaints about anything. We ate breakfast in their restaurant 2 times and they were not hot. We had one evening meal and it was very good.
We enjoyed our stay. The clerks were very friendly and accommodating. The ac/heater was of the newest style that I have seen in motels. I would go there again!

Room Tip: We were in room 413 I believe, over the lobby facing over the street. We had good free WiFi also.
