“Great location !!”
Reviewed 25 September 2013

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.

From the outside it looks like a cheap motel. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the front desk staff were pleasant,which was nice. The location is great for day trips to Yellowstone. The restaurant is OK food is average, service is SLOW, servings are huge, but salad bar is dissapointing!

Three Bear Lodge was about a 1/4 of a mile to Yellowstone Park. It was located near the shopping area in town. Rooms comfortable and clean. The buses for the park tours originated at the Lodge. Everything was very convenient.

This Inn is right downtown. Updated.clean and reasonable. Located on main road into Yellowstone Park west entrance. Staff could have been friendlier, but overall they were nice.
Two BR unit has one bath in bedroom not between BR's. Inconvient for friends. OK for families(maybe).
Nothing special except for location.

Room Tip: See above re 2BR unit
