“Great stay”
Reviewed 16 October 2013 via mobile

Great little place. Everything was spotless and well-kept. The Three Bears themed room was cute. Loved how much space you get for the price. Night staff was short, but polite. Day staff was beyond helpful if making recommendations given the effects of the government shutdown on activities and such in the area as a whole.

Stayed October 2013, travelled with family

My husband and I spent three nights at Three Bear Lodge in August 2013. Our room was in the main lodge. The room was very big, had a king size bed, very nicely decorated and very clean. The only drawback I could see for some people is there is no elevator and our room was on the 2nd floor however the staff told us that when we made our reservation - it was not a problem for us. Location was great, close and walking distance to town where there were lots of great shops! Staff was friendly and helpful too. We ate at Three Bear Restaurant which was good for dinner and breakfast!

Stayed 3 nights in September, 2013. Room was spacious and very clean. Avoid eating dinner at the restaurant, it was ok but nothing special and a little pricey. Breakfast good. My only issue was the front desk staff. They were not rude but not terribly helpful either. A simple smile would have been great. One girl could not even speak to customers without resting her head on her hand. Must have been tired. Lisa was the only exception. She was helpful, pleasant, smiled and seemed to actually enjoy her job. It's a service industry and staff needs to take the extra step. Otherwise I would stay again and there was nothing negative about the property.

Room Tip: Don't miss the grizzly and wolf discovery center around the corner. It does not dissapoint. A...

Spent one night and was pleased overall but not blown away. The staff is friendly and helpful but the accommodations seemed a little tired. Could be because of the location and time of year and it was not ragged or dirty. Just a nice place to spend the night. Had a drink in the bar and everyone was friendly and courteous and the crowd was sparse. It is probably very busy during the high season because it looks like it could accommodate conventions.

Breakfast was a buffet and was GREAT! Lots of variety and fresh as could be. I saw the manager checking the temperature of the food several times to make sure it had not been there too long and was the proper temp. I appreciated that.

I would go back there again.

We stayed in the motel section of Three Bears in early September! Would love to have stayed in the lodge with a king size bed but they were full. The motel was nice and we could walk to everything. Had drinks at the lounge and breakfast at Three bears resturant, very hearty breakfast and fast service! Overall our experience was very good would recommend this to all!!! The only issue was the air conditioner did not seem to keep the motel room cool, we just opened the window, glad it wasn't the middle of a hot summer!

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. :)
