We stayed here for 6 nights whilst visiting Yellowstone NP. The hotel is really close to the West Entrance to the park, making it a great place to stay. The room we had was really large, two Queen beds, sofa, table and a kitchen area - really too much as we were spending all our time in Yellowstone and only... More

You can't beat the location if you're trying to see Yellowstone on the clock. The room is average and the hotel is dated. However, it was clean and offered parking. We arrived late in the day and nearly everything was closed but fortunately you could walk to a small nearby store to pick up a little food.

This is the best place I've stayed so far in W. Yellowstone. The hotel was updated, clean and quiet. The breakfast was much better than other hotels' breakfasts. The scrambled eggs were real and they had French toast. The only downside was that the beds were really hard, but this seems to be the general course for W. Yellowstone lodging.... More

Indifferent welcome and departure. Room comfortable but rather dark. Free breakfast the usual dried scrambled eggs and greasy sausage and bacon, with fruit, cereals etc. Good restaurants nearby. Very close to entrance to Yellowstone Park.

We had a great stay - the BestWestern Desert Inn was just down the street from the turn to access Yellowstone. It had lots of parking and was right downtown so we were close to many restaurants and stores for shopping. Although the hotel had some age it was decorated nicely and well maintained. The hotel had a big indoor... More

I am not a demanding person when it comes to lodging. Mindful of water conservation in today's drought conditions, it is important that a hotel provide instant hot water. The Best Western Desert Inn is the best by far of any hotel/motel we've ever stayed in. Breakfast was delicious and varied. Bravo to your courteous staff who made our stay... More

The hotel is clean and has a well-appointed lobby. We had a comfortable, quiet room. The hotel provides a nice complimentary breakfast. breakfast. There is easy access and plenty of parking. The hotel is a short walking distance from all the shops and restaurants.

Booked here because the tour group selected it. Close to downtown & restaurants. Room was nice and spacious. Loud in room heater. Has laundry facilities. No gift shop or snack shop. Very small room for breakfast and small selection of food for breakfast buffet. Horrible coffee! Staff doesn't answer the phone- had trouble calling them before we arrived there and... More

Growing up staying in very primitive surroundings AS A KID has made me appreciate the ultimate luxury of this Inn. The decor is appropriate for the area complete with my favorite moose and bear. The continental breakfast is complete and delicious. The staff pleasant and very helpful. I prefer to stay in West Yellowstone and then travel in and out... More

This is a very nice hotel. Nothing out of the ordinary, but a comfortable, quiet place to stay. The location is convenient. The breakfast offering was more substantial than most "free" breakfast offered elsewhere.
