The room was small, but it was the warmest, coziest room we stayed in on our vacation. While many hotel rooms feel sterile, this one was warm and welcoming. We stayed in a cabin. It was late in the season so the nearest restaurants were the fast food places in Browning. We were on a 7 day road trip and we both declared Dancing Bears as our hands down, favorite of all the places we stayed in.

Stay away!!! RUN, RUN,RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN!!! Horrible motel. I canceled one of the nights due to flight changes and owner refuses to give me my money back. I did everything I was supposed to do, I canceled in the right time that was allowed so basically Dancing Bears sold my money....Don't trust anything they say!!

I have stayed many places and I have never written a negative review before. This was the absolute worst experience ever! The small room was located next to a saloon and from midnight until 2:30 a.m., there was a raucous crowd next to my window. Beer bottles were breaking and motorcycles were gunning their motors. One person even knocked on my window while smoking a cigarette! We could not sleep @ all! There was no cell signal to call for help. Afterwards, when I spoke with the manager, she admitted she was aware of the issue & claimed she would reimburse me for the next night that I had reserved that I was cancelling. After that conversation, I called and emailed 8 times over 6 weeks prior to writing this to give her a chance to honor her word. I would have preferred being reimbursed instead of writing this horrible review. Do NOT stay @ this place even if it is the last place in town.
