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. The only problem we encountered was that in our room we could not get NBC for the...

we booked early to get a better price. The room was clean, spacious, and included internet, fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. $3 coupons off breakfast does go a long way for the already fairly priced meals. the town is so small that anywhere is in walking distance. We haven't stayed anywhere else (our first time in WYS) but would definitely...

We stayed the the Three Bear Lodge for most of our week that we spent in Yellowstone. It's a short walk to all of the restaurants and shops in the area, and within sight of the entrance to the park.

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. For over $200.00/night we expected to at least have a comfortable bed...it felt like concrete with tiny...

This was a perfect place to stay as it's only a couple of minutes drive to the park as it is right by the west Yellowstone park entrance.

The lodge is conveniently located and the rooms are spacious (in the lodge). That's it for the good aspects.

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
