“Great Location”
Reviewed 4 October 2013 via mobile

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 It's a bit outdated and seemed to smell a bit musty, but overall it was VERY convenient, the people there were very nice, and it was clean.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.

We stayed her 2 nights as part of a Titan Tour to Yellowstone. Terrific room with lovely big comfy beds and little bears etched into the woodwork. Only downside was the fact that although it was a big bathroom the washbasin was in the bedroom. Bit off putting if you just wanted a good wash as opposed to a shower! The attached restaurant was very good. We had our breakfast and evening meals there on both days. They were very busy but service was good. Great salad bar and good choices. I would highly recommend staying here.

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.
