The room was adorable, clean and spacious. The adjoining restaurant had great food and breakfast was free or deeply discounted and very reasonable. It was only a few miles from the park entrance. We would definately return there and recommend it

Rustic it is.
Three bear lodge is indeed "as advertised" rustic. It is however, clean and fits in with the atmosphere of west yellowstone. The attached resteraunt serves great breakfasts and dinners after a day of exploring yellowstone. The staff is friendly and helpful in providing hints for your visit to yellowstone. All in all a great bargain for the area.

Motel section was quiet, everything worked and preferred over lodge.
There were some negative comments in prior reviews re the motel section. It didn't have views but we didn't care cause you could park in front of room and everything at the lodge was very near incl where to eat breakfast. Price was the best in town when I booked. I have stayed in about 10 motels in west yellowstone and this is as good as any and convienent to park. Friendly, very efficient reception and check in.

Quaint, clean, reasonably priced
A friend recommended this hotel to us, and it was a good recommendation. We initially tried to stay in the park, but didn't feel like we would get there value for what we needed to pay. Three Bears Lodge is in West Yellowstone, which is right by the West Yellowstone park entrance. Very convenient location for a quick 2 day visit to yellowstone.
The Three Bears Lodge is both a street front lodge and motel where you park right in front of your room in the back. Not usually what I would pick for our hotel stays. (I am a little spoiled 😉). With all that said, it was perfect for us. The room was very clean, surprising spacious, the bed and linens were very comfortable, and the custom made furniture was enchanting. I was worried about it being noisy because it was a motel, but it was not at all. There were lots of cars parked outside rooms, but I never heard anything from other rooms.
We booked a 2 bedroom bedroom king room. It was at least half the price of something smaller in the park. The hotel has many different setups of rooms with different sized beds. Our room had a king sized bed in a good sized room, and then another room just large enough to fit a full sized bed. It would be perfect for children, but we used it for our suitcases and clothes so they didn't have to be in our room.
Three Bears Lodge is very conveniently located to walk to about any of the restaurants and shops in West Yellowstone.
We enjoyed The Three Bears Lodge and will stay here again when we come back to Yellowstone. The only reason I made it a 4 star vs 5 star was the bathroom was a little small (but very clean) and to turn on the light in the bathroom it also turned in the fan and it was a bit noisy. This is also more of a road side motel, not a 5 star hotel. But I would definitely classify it higher than any motel I have seen. The motel is not particular scenic on the outside (our room was down an ally way/drive way, but all the scenic you want is right down the road in Yellowstone. The town of West Yellowstone, is a little touristy, but still cute. We found several little gems in town and wished we had more time to explore it.

Okay, I suppose...
We stayed for one evening as part of a tour of the mid-west. The room was of a decent size, as was the bathroom. The beds were comfortable, but the room was cold. Yes, it was towards the end of the season and the weather had turned colder during the day. When we tried heating the room, the heater made such a horrid burning smell, we decided to turn it off again, quickly! We suspected it was burning dusty off the heater coils due to lack of use. However, this meant we had to spend the evening under the bedding, trying to keep warm!
We slept well, when we eventually got warm and despite being on the ground floor next to the car park. In the morning, the shower was really hot and had plenty of pressure. The hairdryer failed to work for my wife and having called the front desk, they provided a replacement without question. Breakfast was served in the main block and was selected from a menu against a voucher for $8 per person. This was a complete surprise to us, having spent the last two weeks dealing with self-service breakfasts. Once we got to grips with not being able to load up our plates for the day, we did actually have a decent meal for our voucher’s value and the staff serving were quite helpful.
I’m not sure I would recommend this hotel, to be frank. It is in need of rejuvenating, the room decor and electrics also showing their age. Breakfast was a little archaic, but this may be due to the owners’ religion, of which I will say no more!
