Checked in. Opened the door to our room to find that it was never cleaned from previous guest. Front desk then checked us into a different room to find a dirty room. Bathtub had tons of hair, coffee pot still had coffee in it. Floor was never vacumed. I demanded my money back and received this reply. "Ill leave the... More

We were pleased with our stay. The staff was helpful and friendly. The housekeeping supervisors went our of their way to be helpful. The front desk was friendly.

I paid $75 a night for what amounts to an old, musty motel for degenerate gamblers and local alcoholics. The front desk staff weren't exactly rude, but their body language seemed to suggest that I was wasting their time when I asked them for the Wifi password. The AC unit in our room was definitely from the 1970s and I... More

Our experience was much better than almost all of the reviews that I have read. On Trip Advisor and elsewhere. Common areas were clean and a bit worn in places. Our room was very nice. We appreciated the iron and ironing board, in-room coffee, fridge, flat screen TV, nice sheets and linens. The WiFi was a weak but free and... More

Beds were clean and comfortable but overall the motel needs a good carpet cleaning and facelift. The carpet in the hallways and room had not been vacuumed and was in need of a good cleaning. The bed was comfortable and clean but the carpets need attention.

I stayed at this "hotel" on my way from Monterey, CA to Bozeman, MT. My wife made the reservation for me and I just needed a place to lay my head to break up the 17 hour drive. Sadly, I was afraid to lay down anywhere in this hotel. The lobby reeked of smoke and the carpet throughout the property... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the room - very nice decor and comfortable bed. That said, the television was not working properly and the swimming pool was closed for maintenance. Lots of restaurants nearby.

Very pleased to find the High Desert Inn with clean bathrooms, clean beds, fine restaurant, very convenient off the main freeway from West Yellowstone on the return trip to the Bay Area. Fast service and adequate facilities. Parking right near rooms. Fridge, microwave, and Wifi made all the difference to us. Across the street accessible restaurants and gas stations, which... More
