A 2 night stay, in a good place. Large, well appointed rooms, clean, with good fittings. Breakfast was exceptional, well served even though it gets pretty busy. Perfect location for entry to Yellowstone NP, west entrance. Will definitely use again.

We are on a 5 week tour in the states and stayed here for 5 nights whilst visiting Yellowstone National Park. It has a perfect location, only a 5 minute drive from the West Entrance to the park and within walking distance to all the shops and restaurants in West Yellowstone. The rooms were a great size, nice and clean... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Best Western Desert Inn. Stayed in a two King Bed room that was huge. It also had a pull out sofa bed. It very comfortably accommodated our family of 5 (two adults and three teens). Hotel offers a complimentary breakfast. It's not great, but its free and a decent enough way to start... More

The place is pretty convenient to visit Yellowstone. But the hotel has a musty smell in the hallway. Not sure about others, our room was worse than the hallway. Can't switch rooms because the place was full.

I stayed in the Desert Inn in West Yellowstone, MT for three nights. The hotel is conveniently located in the center of the West Yellowstone tourist center. It is close to many restaurants and tourist activities. The room was large, clean and comfortable. My only complaint is that for most of my stay there was no internet access. When it... More

Our hotel room was clean and very large. The staff were friendly and helpful. The reason we chose this hotel was because it is located very close to the entrance to Yellowstone National Park. There was a complimentary breakfast - but we did not eat there.

Less than 5 minutes to park entrance and on the main street with lots of options to dine. The room was large, comfortable and quiet. The only negative was the size of the dining area for breakfast, it was way too small and if you go for breakfast at the wrong time you may have to stand around waiting for... More

The room had a few issues - mainly the toilet was not anchored to the floor securely. Made for an unpleasant surprise no matter how carefully you tried to use it. Apparently they had no other rooms available. Otherwise good location - near shops and restaurants. Breakfast was as bad as others have claimed - suitable only for sugar crazed... More

Early check-in (about 2pm) was no problem. The hotel is close to some shops and restaurants. The road in the back of the hotel even allows to reach the Yellowstone park entry without red lights. :-) The room was rather small even when we booked a larger than normal room (2 King). The beds were OK - not the most... More

Our large group stayed two different times within a week. This place is way better than White Buffalo Hotel (comparing to two years ago). My views.... 1. Located within the town for eateries & events (Slippery Otter & Bullwinkle's) 2. Elevator up to third Floor (handicap accessible, very slow, stairs were faster) 3. Large Swimming Pool & Hot Tub (Pool... More
