Spent 3 night at the BW it was comfortable and quite for as busy as it was with the snowmobiles. We had brought our Doodles with us and had requested bottom floor close to a door. But nothing available when we got there so we're up stair, turned out not to be a problem. Hot breakfast (no Waffles) but lots... More

Love the new design of the contemporary and comfortable look & feel of the rooms. Half of the hotel was still under renovation - but love the direction. It was my most comfortable hotel stay of three different hotels on my business trip - had my best sleep! Great value for the price - My choice for stay in Idaho... More

We stayed here for 5 nights while touring Yellowstone and snowmobiling. The hotel was clean, quiet, and in a very convenient location. We ate breakfast here 2 mornings and it was fine--typical free breakfast fare. Cereal, toast, eggs, yogurt, and beverages. If you are not headed out early, wait a bit for the crowd to dissipate. The breakfast area gets... More

From the outside, I wasn't impressed. This looks like what a hotel/motel looks like in Alaska (and that isn't a compliment.) There was enough parking for the vehicles (lots of snowmobiles.) The staff was friendly and check-in was quick. They have a public computer down by the breakfast area. The breakfast area has hot chocolate, cider and teas 24 hours... More

Stayed two nights in January for a photography getaway. Check-in was easy, room was standard, comfortable bed, good TV. Breakfast was hot, good. Rowdy hunting group was a bit distracting while eating breakfast, but clear they were having a great time. Could walk to restaurants for dinner. Parking lot was a little difficult to leave as the exit sign led... More

The quality of Best Westerns can really differ from property to property, but this Best Western is an excellent one. The rooms were very comfortable and well-kept. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable regarding the limited local dining and shopping in this winter season. Breakfast was above average for such a property. No problems to report, so travelers can... More

We stayed at Best Western Desert Inn in West for a snowmobiling trip. I have to bring my own food, so a room with microwave and fridge is absolutely necessary. We usually stay at a little more high end hotel, but not a lot of options in West. Overall for the money it was a great hotel that met all... More

Excellent service , comfort staff is very friendly and helpful I've stayed at this hotel at least once a year for the past 6years and the only complaint would be they need rubber pads or weathers tripping on the room doors because they bang when closed .

This room was surprisingly affordable for peak winter season in a destination town. The front desk clerk was very friendly and helpful. Room was "oversized" as advertised and clean and comfortable with fridge and microwave. Didn't notice any noise from neighbors or hall. Only complaint about the room was that pillows were a little "overstuffed" for my liking and made... More

We stayed here to attend a nordic ski festival during Thanksgiving week. The price was good, the location was convenient, and we were walking distance to restaurants. Our room was vary spacious and comfortable and we really appreciated having the microwave and refrigerator. That was a real plus for us. Wifi was generally good and easy to use on multiple... More
