Nice place to visit, good people, good food.
Great place. Grumpy old cook needs to be fired...cooking is about passion he has none and his plates reflect that

Serveur / propriétaire était un délice total! ! Jamais, jamais, meilleur n'avait été meilleur poulet frit! Incroyable atmosphère de type lodge du début du XXe siècle que vous ne reverrez plus. Parfait arrêt sur le chemin du nord (ou du sud). Un gardien, ne manquez pas celui-ci! More...

Food was delicious
Awesome food and friendly staff
Very nice place. Nice people. Good food. Only gave it 4 out of 5 because its pricie.
Great food friendly atmosphere
We stayed here on the way back from Binghamton after a night baseball game. The motel was adequate and very reasonable, dated in the way you would expect. The gem was breakfast - and we sat (unknowingly) in the bar which was a treat. The food was classic diner breakfast and very well served, while the whole time the bar was filled with energetic folk having drinks early in the morning. Super fun! Friendly staff, good food, all around a fun place. More...
GfWC- NY has their Central District Meetings at the Three Bears Inn. Great food, wonderful service and delightful to work with setting up Breakfast/ Luncheon meetings.
Like cabin camping. Bring a pillow ones in the rooms are thin.

Good food and friendly people
Had the Prime Rib buffet. Very good.
It's like stepping into a 30s roadhouse.Breakfast is beyond amazing, and it is equalled only by every other meal.
Good people and laid back bar⭐
Love this place
This is an amazing place and has amazing employees and great food....
Staff was welcoming and the entertainment was great.
The prime rib was excellent
Little homey type place. Favorite rest stop everytime
Love this place it was up for sale when we were there. Mattress was a little beatThe restaurant has awesome food
The very best experience with hotel Hospitality. In all of the Northeast.The breakfast was exquisite.
Love this place. So pleasant and homey.
The rooms could do it with a renovation but it's cheap and easy to keep the rooms as warm or cold as you like. Plus the staff is SO nice! I love staying here for the maple fest and so does most of my family. More...

Incredibly kind and hospitable staff.
The accommodations are rustic and a bit threadbare, but pleasant.
Great family atmosphere....staff very warm and welcoming! Good home style, tasty food....AND family friendly reasonable prices.
Food was good
Though I can understand other people's opinion of this establishment, coming from New York city, this place is a refreshing find. There's no polish or refined dining, just basic food and entertainment 80's style. They could have filmed Netflix's Stranger Things here. I love this place. Plus, I love greasy diner places More...
If you are on a budget it's a great place to stay. Staff are friendly and breakfast is very good.
Have had the best food and drinks. Everyone was just wonderful. Can't wait until I come back. If anyone comes through Marathon New York stop and enjoy a fantastic lunch or dinner.
Nice room, good rates and lovely food.

Wonderful here the prices are great too
We always have a great meal here. The people are great also.
Wonderful small town paneling on the walls 2 dollar cans kind of bar. Stopped in on a Sunday night for a quick beverage... How cool... Now I do not know about the attached Motel but the bar itself was awesome. More...
Love it here !
Simple fare, I had trouble with the chicken not being fully cooked, once it was pointed out they not only took care of it, they cut the price by 1/2
Went there for the prime rib buffet. Was very pleased the food was excellent and the staff made you feel comfortable. Nothing fancy just great food and people.We will definitely be going back.
Very friendly staff
Good food, and I was able to get gluten free.
Cute restaurant inside of a quilt shop. Fun shopping for gifts. Food was good but we're disappointed they wouldn't give refills on decaf coffee after spending almost $60 on breakfast. Dirty plates need to be removed from table. More...

Always a pleasure to visit Sharon and the rest of the 3 Bear family.....the food is terrific, the people are better, and welcoming atmosphere is the best.
It's rather dated but the price is right and it's clean. Not to mention the bar serves food as well. I had steak that was absolutely perfect.
For a 100 year old hotel it's pretty decent and clean and was the best spot for a great price. Friendly staff and quite bar with simple drinks and beer. The breakfast is supposedly awesome and cheap but we left before 7am which is open time. Been twice this year. More...

I've only been here for drinks, but its a cool local watering hole
Great place! Sharon was great to hang out with at the bar while we ate dinner.
Great place to stop for a break on the road trip. Sharon the bartender (who actually owns the place) is a sweetheart and she can pour a drink. Gina, the other bartender is who I want on my side in a brawl. Great place, great food & great people. More...
Such friendly faces here ~
A really nice place to have a meal. The food was delicious and the staff were very attentive
Prime rib buffet was awesome
Not a bad place for the price. Warm and a good bed. Could use some extra cleaning, but it was very nice and homely.

Three Bear is truly home away from home. Never been to a place that can just make you feel so comfortable. Amazing staff, great food. Can't ask for much more.
Great food, excellent service in this family owned and operated quaint restaurant and Inn. Mothers day buffet was out of this world!

Owner is very friendly and makes you feel welcome. Bike night is always a good time.
Best meal we've had there in years, the trout and fried chicken are the best !
Loved this place. Great steak!
It's a historical site and has all the charm of yesterday. The food is awesome.
Always a great experience. I was home for the holidays and it's a good place to catch up with old friends. Staff is always friendly and prices are more than reasonable.
One of my favorite places to visit! The crew at the Three Bear always provide excellent service and the food is delicious!
Quaint atmosphere with a lot of history. Excellent food and service. Being welcomed by the owner adds to homey feeling.
Great place to seeAnd meet new people and enjoy good food
Very friendly service, big selection of foods, have only gone for breakfast on the way to a camping trip, but have been for 3 years now.
Small town dive. Love it
This is a historic restaurant and hotel. I hear the rooms are clean, but simple. The food is very good and there is a Buffett on the weekends. This is worth the trip and is easy to get to from I-81. More...
Best place for breakfast while we are camping. I love getting a full carafe of coffee
Nous avons été et sommes très satisfaits très belle ambiance beau petit coin à découvrir personnel très gentil .motel propre on y retourne Merci. Guy et Denise
We were pleasntly surprised by this find. We chose to go there beacause we had a coupon that was going to expire. When we pulled in at 7pm and realized we were the only dinner customers I was a little nervous but we drove 30 minutes to get there, so we weren't going anywhere else. The food was top notch!!! I ordered a 6 oz piece of ribeye. My wife ordered fried scallops . Delicious! Definately going back. My only criticism is the draft beer should have been colder and the wine choices were not good.

This is not a 5 star hotel. They do not have room service. There is no spa on site. The rooms are very clean, the front desk staff is friendly, and the inn was very quiet and safe.

We wanted to stay in a local restaurant -- Three Bear Inn was the choice. The waitress was very friendly, helpful, and personable. Food was good.

Though I live only 20 minutes away it's good to come here for a simple, quiet,clean room, some very very good food (much better than you'd expect for such a podunk town) ... a nice r&r away from work and kids for a day. For less than $100 total! Whaaa !!! In 2017?! Shazam! They allow pets for only 10 bucks extra, so if I wanted to bring my dog it wouldn't be a problem. The restaurant has amazing walnut pie, homemade sweet breads, many meatless options, homemade black bean burgers ( not some frozen out of a box veggie patty), a nice salad bar, really damn good chili. The coffee is purty dang good too, even if you're accustomed to gimme! coffee. Service is grand. Super nice people. You can walk to a little grocery store for snacks for your room, or a gas station is right across the street. More...

Furnishings are older, and fit the atmosphere created perfectly. The rooms were cleaner than some big chain hotels we stayed at. The staff are second to none, from check in till leaving, we were greeted and treated as we were family. The dining room and pub are a nice retreat with good foods and drinks, again priced very fair. I have referred many friends and family whom all were very pleased with the Three Bear Inn. I suggest a stay, meet Sharon, she is wonderful, has a lot to share about the history of the hotel and runs it well. She and her staff could not have worked harder to make you feel welcomed from checking in until checking out. Just remember to pack a hair dryer should you need one. More...
This place makes Great burgers... freshly ground beef and I must say when I ask for medium rare I am always surprised to get it cooked to my liking. .. it was perfect! Staff is always friendly even when the place is packed. We visit several times a year and never disappointed. More...
I really love this throwback. Yes it's rundown, and there are no amenities other than soap, but the price for a room is incredibly low. My kid is in college in Dryden, and when I make my monthly visit we stay here. It's worth the 20 minute drive. And, it's right off the highway.The staff is always friendly, and they have a nice little bar and restaurant. The patrons at the bar are, well, interesting. And locals can be found banging back brews at ten in the morning. More...

Very friendly staff and rustic look. They let me use their free Wifi when I was passing through town and had an online meeting that I would have otherwise missed. Though the kitchen was closed, one of the employees overheard me mention my hunger during the skype call and offered to make me a sandwich. If you're in the area, stop in! The pizza place across the street is also some of the best pizza I've ever had. More...
This place is our family gem! Stopped in for our third visit in the last few years, just before Christmas '12. They are the perfect 1/2 way point between DC and Canada. The rooms are clean and cozy. This is a family run operation and very much in the motel class, but that is all we need. Comfy beds and pillows and a warm shower. We always look forward to breakfast there, perhaps not the fastest (as your waitress is often your cook too!). The pitcher of coffee and the cozy atmosphere will keep you entertained. You will be in and out and ready for your drive in no time. Our room was only 50.00 a night and they let me order two beers from the bar to bring back to our room. Super friendly staff and right off the freeway! My kid loves looking for all the bears both inside and outside! More...
Do you like wood paneling covering every surface? Do you like vintage landscape prints above the bed? If you are looking for a classic motel this is your spot. It is nothing fancy, but it has a cute retro appearance and the price is reasonable, although they did charge me $10 more than the price listed on the website. It definitely seems like a budget motel, but it is not creepy or shady in any way...I felt totally comfortable staying there alone. And it has free wifi! More...
Nice rustic restaurant and motel with bar area. Very good prices.Seems like the best bet in that area, and only 8 miles from Greek Peak Ski area.Good food and great prices, certainly not gourmet, but if you keep your expectations realistic you should find something you like.Steak was a bit fatty and thin, but had good flavor. This is a diner style steak, not a steakhouse steak. Ribs were quite good, tender, but not mushy or over done, but had too much cheap sauce. Fried chicken was also very juicy. Baked potato was great, the mashed potatoes were from a box. My friend had the pork chops, it was a very big portion, but i could see that it was over cooked for my taste, and looked dry.Mini salad bar was OK, very basic selections and a bit below par, but passable, and included with entrees at no extra charge. The salad bar did have a nice selection of breads and dinner rolls that seemed very fresh and tasty.Full service bar with very low prices compared to what I'm used to paying for drinks.I will be back next time I'm in the area for skiing.
