We stayed here for three nights while visiting Yellowstone Park. Our room was in the motel part which is attached to the lodge. The room was clean, comfortable and was a good size, though that was expected since we opted for the in-room Jacuzzi. We were able to park outside our door which made loading and unloading the car quite...

Thank you for commenting on your stay here at the Three Bear Lodge! We were glad that the motel room was able to meet your needs! Thanks for mentioning our King Jacuzzi room, available only in the motel section. It is a two person Jacuzzi tub, perfect for those honeymoon couples; even if they have been “honeymooning” for years!

Can't get any closer to the west gate than this. Clean, comfortable rooms with a lot of history and ambiance. Stayed in the economy rooms in the back portion but still felt like we were in the original lodge.

We were not in the main lodge, but in the "motel" section in a large 3-queen room. It's an older motel with old-fashioned furnishings. We had a mini-fridge (no freezer), a small microwave, air conditioning, and a view to a junk-filled alley. There were two comfortable chairs for reading, but no lamps nearby to provide sufficient light. The beds were...

The Three Bear Hotel was Ok for a short stay. the hotel rooms definitely are in need of a major upgrade. They do advertise some rooms as new, but just upgrading the shower and toilet would not be my definition of new. It is definitely in need of new carpeting and decor and the lighting was very low especially in...

We could not get accommodation anywhere within Yellowstone National Park. It must be all taken by the bus tour companies. However West Yellowstone was close enough and being a small town it offered a lot of extra features. Three Bear Lodge was perfect.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Lodge constructed in 2009 and the Motel rooms remodeled in 2011. From the moment you approach this impressive Lodge, you will realize it is no ordinary hotel. From the massive volcanic rock, log, and beam exterior, through the dramatic lobby and reclaimed materials in the common areas — you will know you are in for a unique experience. As you open the door to your spacious and comfortable room you will be enraptured by the handmade furniture crafted with reclaimed wood from the original 1932 building.Outdoor swimming pool is open during the summer months. Be sure to stop next door and experience our famous Three Bear Restaurant for breakfast and dinner. ... more   less
