We had a fantastic stay at the Big Bear Motel. We booked one of the cabins for our 2 night stay in Cody, WY. The cabin was clean, spacious and had all the essentials. The owners were so sweet and welcoming! They gave us a tour of the property, made local restaurant recommendations and we even got to ride Hank ( one of the horses on property). And little Cookie Man is the cutest mini pony around! Highly recommend the Big Bear Motel!!!

Our rooms were great sized and super clean. The price was great which made us nervous prior to getting there but all was well. The staff was really friendly and helpful. They bring horses out in the evenings which is really cool. We enjoyed the seating areas provided outside each room. We would definitely stay here again!

Simple amenities but more than adequate for our stay. Our room was very spacious and quite comfortable. Thank you for the hospitality. Will definitely have Cody on our stops for coming years. The west is the best.

Great staff. Made you feel welcome. Had entertainment at night. Clean rooms. Nothing fancy but very adequate for a budget motel. Had free horse rides. Right across from Old Town Trail. Would stay again and would recommend to friends.

This was a nice hotel. Staff was friendly and accommodating. The rooms are smaller and don’t expect a lot of frills, but I knew that going in and didn’t mind. The only downfall, and not there fault, is the location is a long drive from Yellowstone, which is why we were there.
