Simpsonville, SC
Reviewed 16 September 2014

I chose this lodge based on reviews and price. I have stayed elsewhere in town so wanted to try something different. We had rooms upstairs in the lodge. The room was spacious, especially the bathroom. The heating and AC worked well. It had the needed amenities, maybe not as fancy as some might like. I particularly enjoyed reading some of...

The lodge is conveniently located and the rooms are spacious (in the lodge). That's it for the good aspects. The owner is too cheap to light the gas fireplace in the lobby, robbing it of any charm it might have had. No free newspaper in the morning - as you get in a $65 a night Super 8. Breakfast is...

We stayed here for canon photography workshop and thought we were reserving a room in the historic lodge but on check in we realized that bigger part of this 'lodge' was an average motel! The rooms are very clean, v good firm mattress, no smell.. BUT this is not charming or luxurious.. your window looks out to the parking lot...

The Three Bear Lodge is located just outside the park, the west entrance is only minutes away. Our room in the main lodge was spacious, clean and comfortable.

The actual lodge is very cute and historic. The location of the motel right outside the lodge in the back is good because you can walk to everything in the cute town of West Yellowstone AND it is very close to the West Entrance of Yellowstone NP. However, the motel rooms are just typical motel rooms ( nothing fancy). The...

Room was very nice and clean. And the hot tub was a nice touch. We liked the town of West Yellowstone a lot and the entrance to Yellowstone is very close.The attached restaurant was very good. We liked reading and seeing the items that were salvaged and re-used after a fire and resulting demolition.... and the owners "white-shirt"

West Yellowstone is a very nice to stay just outside of the NP. We chose the Three Bear Lodge because they had a room with 3 queen sized beds.

We stayed at the Three Bear Lodge motel for our family vacation to Yellowstone National Park. We were supposed to stay at the lodge for four nights but after one night we had enough of the motel.

We stayed here for two nights and loved every moment at this hotel and in this part of West Yellowstone. This lodge has lots of history and is worth the time to check it out. The room was clean and spacious. The bath and linens were above average. The front desk was informative and kind. Would stay here again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Lodge constructed in 2009 and the Motel rooms remodeled in 2011. From the moment you approach this impressive Lodge, you will realize it is no ordinary hotel. From the massive volcanic rock, log, and beam exterior, through the dramatic lobby and reclaimed materials in the common areas — you will know you are in for a unique experience. As you open the door to your spacious and comfortable room you will be enraptured by the handmade furniture crafted with reclaimed wood from the original 1932 building.Outdoor swimming pool is open during the summer months. Be sure to stop next door and experience our famous Three Bear Restaurant for breakfast and dinner. ... more   less
