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... More

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.

We could not get accommodation anywhere within Yellowstone National Park. It must be all taken by the bus tour companies.

All West Yellowstone lodging is overpriced due to the massive influx of Chinese tourists. We've stayed at several places over the years in West Yellowstone. This was a first at Three Bears and our last. While the room was clean it wasn't comfortable.

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
