Wasn't expecting much but needed a pet friendly place to stay. Pleasantly surprised; yes the room is a little outdated but super clean and comfortable. The owners were super nice and we met so many wonderful dog loving people staying there. If we are ever in the area again will be our to go to place. BTW found a wonderful dinner not far in Prattsville that had an outside dog friendly area . Service and food were excellent.

The bad: It looks a little run down but not in the most charming way. The sink has a lot of rust. Seems like a relatively inaffordable fix. The room was a little dirty. I had to ask the owner to wash the microwave plate because there was caked on food. The floor was really dirty which I realized after spilling water. These things wouldn’t bother me normally, but since we are living in Covid-19 times, it bothered me a little that they aren’t meticulous about cleaning and maintenance The good: Owners are very nice and accommodating. I arrived really late and the owners stayed up to greet me. She also made sure I had everything I needed. They have a small continental breakfast to go (COVID-19) which consists of a banana, muffin, coffee/tea. Everything is laid out really neatly and there’s more than enough for all guests. Location is good. I visited several sites in the Catskills and most were within 30 minutes of this motel. It’s pet friendly! Which is the main reason I chose this place, along with the price. And there’s more than enough room in the back for my dog to run and get a little walk in.

I am so pleased with Black Bear Lodge. I stayed there to ski at Windham. The heat in the room was turned up so it was toasty when I arrived. The room, #6, was very clean and homey.It's actually a pretty big room. There's a complete little kitchen! Including a gas stove, a microwave and mini fridge. I had several special requests and they were happy to oblige. I love the classic knotty pine panelling in the breakfast area. Really enjoyed the fire they had going in the morning. So cozy to eat breakfast by the fire. Black Bear Lodge is updated to have extra amenities but saved classic features and preserves the nostalgic charm. It makes me happy.

Went with a group of friends for 2 nights as we were doing a fall motorcycle ride through the catskills. I highly recommend this motel for many reasons. I am a bit OCD and am sensitive to funky smells which were none. It was very clean, loved the hardwood floors, friendly owner Kim, FRESH continental breakfast, decent coffee, soft sheets and close proximity to Prattsville which had a supermarket. Daily room service was a nice touch. Highly recommend!

Last November during Hunting season everywhere I looked was booked. I was able to make a reservation here and the people were very helpful and friendly. The facility was clean and quaint. Not your typical roadside lodging but an enjoyable stay. A stream runs behind the place and there is a nice foot path down to it. Locals at the diner told me there is great fishing all up and down the stream. I stayed 2 nights, was able to use the internet and slept well. plenty of hot water. Overall was a good experience. Only reason I did not give 5 stars is that it is an older motel and the decor could be called a little dated. Still had a comfortable visit.
