Quiet, clean hotel. Pool was ok. Good variety at breakfast and staff did a good job keeping up with food and cleaning tables. Beds were comfortable but very lumpy pillows. We liked the separate floors for those with and without dogs..

There are many hotels to choose from in West Yellowstone but I'm glad we chose this one. The main selling point for me was the 2 king size beds. Since I have 2 large teenage boys a larger bed was nice and the beds were very comfortable. The location was also great with a couple of excellent restaurants within walking... More

We stayed here for 2 nights while we were exploring the parks. The room was comfortable, clean and quiet, all you could wish for. The breakfast was the standard fare and the room not too inviting, so we just had coffee and muffin to go.

Spent one night here as it was one of the last few places with availability after we had a last -minute change of plans. As a result we paid a bomb for a very ordinary room in a very ordinary property. I usually book 6 months ahead and it hurt to pay but we had no choice- would not have... More

First trip to Yellowstone and this was decent hotel to stay at. Good location and quick access to the park. Room was nice and always cleaned well after we toured the park all day. Walking distance to places to eat and shop. Would stay here again.

The hotel was about what you can expect from a Best Western, and the price reflects its strategic location (Yellowstone Park). The one thing that stood out was the excellent breakfast, included in your stay. This is the only free breakfast I've had in any hotel I've ever stayed that was very well maintained (two staffers are continually available to... More

Given YNP accommodation was so hard to get this year due to the centennial we booked 3 nights at this Best Western on the edge of the park. It is centrally located, staff are very nice and the rooms are clean and comfortable. We ended up getting a room in the park for our last night and the Best Western... More

What can I say: it's a Best Western! Clean, comfortable, convenient, spacious, good bathroom and shower: just what you want when you're touring Yellowstone and can't stay inside the park. Parking is convenient and free. The location of the Desert Inn is the best: off the main street and quiet, yet close to restaurants and shops and an easy drive... More

It's a Best Western, so we didn't expect 4-star plus quality. That being said, this was a nice enough hotel. The breakfast area can get crowded, but we never had trouble getting a table for three. Breakfast is continental type, but better than average. The pool was a nice bonus for our 4-year old. It's pricey, but what's not in... More

We had a double room with two king beds! Perfect for 2 adults and 2 teen children. The room was spacious and very clean. The front desk service was great at check in and check out and the breakfast was very conplete and had a wide range to items to pick from. Hot and cold.
