The people were so nice and helpful. Room was spic and span clean. The breakfast buffet was delicious. What a time saver it was. The trip came up unexpectedly and it was hard to get 3 nights in the same place. Knowing it was a Best Western I booked there and was so glad I did.

My wife and I had a nice stay here at the Best Western Desert Inn. We stayed three nights in July and check in was easy, staff friendly and Breakfast was good with a bit more variety than we've seen in the past. Our room was clean and beds were comfortable. We never used the pool, but it looked clean... More

First off, desk clerk Erika was fantastic! We didn't know about this motel when we arrived in West Yellowstone and made reservations two hours away in Bozeman. She helped us change the first night reservation from Bozeman to the Desert Inn so we would be much closer to the park. We was very helpful, was all smiles, happy and very... More

The BW Desert in was exactly what you expect it to be. Clean and comfortable rooms that equated to a good night sleep. The room looked to be new or newly updated with nice beds, comfortable pillows, a fridge, microwave, and large flat TV. It has plenty of room to move around and enough room to add a blowup bed...

It is a nice well run hotel. WIFI was easy to access and worked well. It is within easy walking distance of tourist shops and restaurants. Easy access to Yellowstone. The entrance Is a few blocks away.

We were very surprised at how clean and new looking this Inn was. I thought is was brand new and found out it was 9 years old. The breakfast was extremely good for a hotel that offers breakfasts. It is on the Western side of Yellowstone National Park. This is a very cute town and the folks are very nice.

This was our second visit to Yellowstone. We previously stayed at a Best Western in Gardiner. This time we chose West Yellowstone. Neither Best Western Inns disappointed and both met our expectation of a slightly more upmarket but reasonably priced motel (for the Yellowstone area) for a stay of 4 or 5 days. Our room at Desert Inn was spacious... More

Typical BW...clean room, although this one is pretty large. Good sized bathroom. Nothing fancy, but its a great 3 star hotel. Staff has been friendly, although not super knowledgable. Convenient to Yellowstone's West entrance. Town has plenty of dining options.

Great place! Perfect to walk to everything downtown and 2 blocks from Yellowstone entrance. Was very pleased with room, breakfast, comfort, and overall stay. Would choose this one again. It had everything a family stay needed.

This Best Western is a good choice if you can't get into any of the lodging within Yellowstone. It has a good location a couple blocks from the park's East entrance, but be aware that you have to drive a good 14 miles beyond the entrance to begin to see any of the significant sights. That 14 miles can easily... More
