First impression - mustiness, cramped, clean, functional. Prices in general at this location are inflated due to proximity to Yellowstone. That said, this is an older motel that begs updating. Yes, you can do better but will likely spend more $. The good news is that if you're not too fussy you will be comfortable and closer to Yellowstone as it is positioned well.

I loved my stay here from the very first moment: lady at reception extremely friendly and helpful, and so all the staff. The room was nice and cozy. it is very close to old trail town, the rodeo and lots of restaurant. they have activities for kids (and grown up :-)) but in the evening it was very peaceful. They also provided me with a coffee maker and coffee for the morning! So kind!

Friendly and comfortable
Enjoyed our 1 night stay here. The staff were friendly and the room was large, clean and comfortable. We enjoyed sitting outside watching the kids having horse rides. We had a quick dip in the pool too, and did a laundry load.
It is less than a 10 minute walk to the rodeo Would definitely return.

Beware of the townhouses
We booked a 2 bedroom townhouse for 3 adults. The booking confirmation came and we were really looking forward to the use of the pool, horse ride and being so close to the rodeo as we planned to visit there one night.
Unfortunately, when we arrived we were given 2 keys and then shown a map, only to be told that the accommodation was a 5-10 minute drive on the other side of Cody. This meant that to use any of the facilities from the motel such as the swimming pool we had a 5-10 minute drive to do so.
We arrived at the accommodation and I’ll run through the good points first.
The bedding was clean, the Wi-fi was strong and the bathrooms were clean with clean towels and soap and shampoo.
That’s where the positive experience ends I’m afraid. The air con didn’t go to the upstairs at all and made an awful noise every time it started up, we turned it off for our second night, the whole property was very tired and run down, there wasn’t enough crockery and we needed to wash some before using it, there was a used coffee filter left in the machine, the property smelt very musty.
In summary, it was cheap but it was not clear at all that the property was on the other side of town and it is in desperate need of updating.

Very convenient to all attractions.
The staff were very friendly and responsive. We picked it because of the easy access to the road to Yellowstone's east entrance. Big Bear Motel is convenient to downtown Cody and what it has to offer: museums, restaurants, shopping, rodeo. Across the street is a good place to go for breakfast called Our Place. In the evening the staff brings out a beautiful Belgium Draft horse for you to ride around the property. Also a gentleman with a keyboard sings. We had a fun time staying there.
