Okay, but not great
After a fast and friendly check-in, we went to our room in the motel section. It had older furnishings and a noisy heat/AC unit. The room was poorly lit, except at the sink. The beds were comfortable. We had a mini-fridge with freezer and a microwave. The shower head was good. There was little counter space at the sink, which was separate from the shower/toilet room. We could easily hear outside noise in our room, but it was quiet at night. The free hot breakfast in their restaurant was a definite plus. The adjacent Gusher's Restaurant has good pizza.

OK to stay just outside the park
$199.35 Giving this location a 3.9 Hinge rating. This place is also very dated, but the size of the room and upgrade of the amenities put it a definite step above the disappointment of the Antler Inn (motel) in Jackson Hole. The lodge has over 500 rooms, but it appears (Tom’s opinion) that they consolidated a number of independent facilities under the now one name of Three Bears. The main lodge is nicely appointed with massive wood structure but that does not reflect in the back area room we are in (502) so the main lodge rooms might be a lot better.
This Lodge is one of a number of hotels / Lodges just outside the West entrance to Yellowstone (30 minutes from Old Faithful). If you are just traveling through West Yellowstone you will see the lodge, but slow down and make a hard turn as the area of eateries and shops are not on the main highway. We spent about 1 hour walking around the tourist shops and eateries and found them to be relatively mild (not like the overpriced shops in Jackson Hole).
We had breakfast in the restaurant associated with the Three Bear lodges (217 Yellowstone Ave West Yellowstone, Montana); and the meal was GREAT. The MONTANA pancakes were HUGE. We presented the Lodge check-in chit for the accommodations and they took $16 off the bill.
When the EXPENSIVE rooms in the park are full this is a nice close location and just a little less expansive.

Great location close to Yellowstone's West entrance
The room was nice and the staff very friendly. You can order a to go lunch the night before to take into Yellowstone. Also within walking distance of lots of food and shopping, so no need to jump in the car.

Adequate Lodgings - Useless Wifi
We stayed in the motel part of the Three Bear Lodge in October 2020. The pros: a two room suite with one king and two queen beds at an affordable rate - great for our family of 6. A 3 Minute drive to the West Entrance of Yellowstone. Vouchers for breakfast in the restaurant - the food wasn't the best but it was warm and it was free! There aren't many places that serve breakfast in West Yellowstone so we were very grateful for this perk. The cons: the WIFI was completely useless. We had planned to do some homework and work calls from our room and had to hotspot through our phones - spent over $100 in data overage charges. Pillows and bed were hard - everyone had a difficult time getting comfortable. It's possible we'd stay here again for the convenience and the family suite but we were really frustrated that it is advertised as having WIFI when nothing would work while connected to their account.

Wow - better than expected!
First time in Yellowstone and had some friends who always stay at Three Bears Lodge yearly when they go to Yellowstone. Even though Three Bears was more expensive than other places around, we decided to stay here anyhow. We had 5 adults and had a lodge room upstairs, with 2 rooms, and 3 queen beds. (Originally we booked the motel, but our friends convinced us to spend the extra and stay in the lodge).
The room was huge....very spacious and having one of the beds in it's own room was very useful. Get the 2 bedroom room....don't get the one with three queens side by side by side. We are so glad we paid a little more and stayed in the lodge instead of the motel. The lodge is so much nicer, more room, newer, just all around great.
The shower was up high so being 6 feet, I didn't have to bend down to take a shower. The water pressure was great, water always hot.
The included breakfast at the restaurant was amazing. We even said we'd come eat breakfast at the restaurant even if we weren't staying at the lodge. The food was super good and the portions were oh my, so much food.....!
Most other places give you a "grab-n-go" bag for their free breakfast! Not here! The restaurant is very cold though..All three mornings we didn't take off our jackets while eating...and you had to eat fast, as the food got cold quickly because it was so cold in the dining room.
Overall, thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and if we go back to Yellowstone, we will be staying at the Three Bear Lodge!
