We stayed here for 2 nights on a snowmobile tour package. The room was very nice, clean and spacious. Staff were pleasant and helpful. We had a room on the end of the building on the 2nd floor. Breakfast offered nice choices and it was helpful to have hot water for tea available all day. There was a shuttle to... More

Stayed here on a snowmobile holiday and the rooms were comfortable and quiet. Better then average breakfast buffet nut a bit crowded in their lounge area. Plenty of parking for car or snowmobiles. Accommodating staff.

First time staying here. Easy to find, great location. Easy check in and out. Rooms were well appointed, and very clean, the beds very comfortable as were the pillows. Linens were excellent, room very clean. Nice shampoo and soap, new hairdryer. Free wifi, good TV.

Very nice motel. Staff is very friendly. Rooms are very nice. Just had a problem with a lot of snowmobiles parked in the parking lot. They make a lot of noise running, and loading and unloading them in trailers. They should park at the end of the building not by rooms.

We had no room service on Christmas Day. That is pretty disappointing. Shouldn't have to pay full price if the service is not provided. Rooms were good sized and having a pool and hot tub was nice. Good location and very nice continental breakfast area

I stayed at this Best Western on a trip to Yellowstone with a friend in October. Not only were shocked that the quality of the hotel was so amazing for the low cost, but it was sparkling clean. I think of myself as a very clean, thorough person and I could not find a single thing wrong with the room!... More

We stayed here overnight in October. Having stayed in West Yellowstone before, we had not tried this Best Western before and decided to this trip. We won't stay anywhere else if we return to West Yellowstone! Super clean, up-to-date amenities and furnishings, and the best breakfast ever experienced anywhere - I couldn't believe the selections! It's quiet, SUPER close to... More

I spent considerable time studying hotels on west yellowstone, reading reviews, checking locations and of course comparing costs. The Best Western Desert Inn won out in research HOWEVER I must acknowledge research and reviews are not always reality. BUT research and reviews were reality in the case of the Best Western Desert Inn. My In - Laws came with us... More

We ended up with a large room adjacent to the elevator, #319. It was a lapse in judgment on my part for not checking the location of the room. However, the mechanical operation of the elevator was quiet and the traffic quite light in November. Of the three Best Westerns we used during the week, the Desert Inn was the... More

Our first exposure to this motel was at check-in where we were greeted by Erika. She was very pleasant, friendly and cheerful and really made us feel welcome. The room was spacious, attractively decorated and clean. The room included a fridge, microwave and coffee maker. The continental breakfast was one of the best we have experienced. There was everything anyone... More
