The Big Bear is the best place to stay in Cody. The rooms are clean and quiet. The family provides true western hospitality. I always bring the dog along as they have pet friendly rooms. Forget the chain motels. Relax at the Big Bear.

Beautiful views!

This is an awesome motel and I can’t wait to visit again! The room was nice, clean and cozy. It was also fun to walk around and watch the horses (and Cookie of course). The staff was friendly and helpful

Not bad, got the job done w/ no issues

If you don’t mind feeling like you went back in time a few decades, Big Bear Motel will get the job done for you. It’s not very modern, not even the decor. Our heater seemed very old and we really had to crank it to stay warm along with lots of blankets... BUT we were also in one of their biggest rooms (if not THE biggest), so there was a lot of space to heat. Not only that, but we were very recent ex-Californians at the time experiencing our first sub-30 degree weather in years, so it’s possible we were just sissies. That being said, our room was pretty clean. Aside from a flat screen tv, there were no other notable amenities, but all we really needed was a place to close our eyes for the night, so we didn’t mind. The staff (and/or owners) were very friendly. Definitely nothing to complain about on that front. All smiles and courtesy. I got the impression they really take pride and enjoyment in making their guests happy. The proximity to Yellowstone is obviously an added convenience. If you’re in the area and need a place to stay in a pinch, Big Bear Motel might not blow you away, but it’ll get the job done without giving you any serious problems to complain about.

We booked two nights here due to it looking like a nice little mom and pop place. It was a cute little place. Check in was easy. The rooms were really spacious. Probably bigger than any others we stayed at on our two week trip. It was very clean and the bathrooms were fairly updated. The room also had a pretty view. The only complaint I could even think of is we had trouble with our room key at first but then I think it was just user related. 😂 Also, the parking lot was gravel and we believe we may have punctured the tire on our rental van when we first got here. We had to spend $200 to replace it but we can't say this for surewas where it was damaged. Also, there was a great little diner across the street that served an amazing breakfast. We would definitely stay here again. Would love to in the summer to be able to enjoy all the perks that's offered then including the outdoor pool, music and of course the pony rides.

Very affordable and clean!

We stayed 4 nights and it was very pleasant. The staff, especially Bill, were friendly and professional. The room was warm (it was cold outside to us) and clean. The beds were comfortable and the shower was hot! What more could a person ask for? Oh, great pricing! Big Bear Motel is the perfect place to stay if you want to disconnect from the hustle of a busy world. 10 out of 10, would stay there again.
