Great Little Motel
This place is very clean. Room is small, but has everything you need. Even had a small table and two chairs, where we ate our supper of sandwiches that we brought with us. We liked that we could park right outside our room. There were also two Adirondack type chairs with table in between where we sat outside and enjoyed the night air.

Forget the chain motels
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.

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.
