Best Western Yellowstone Crossing
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Laurel
Reviewed July 18, 2010

We were looking for a place to stay while driving through Montana on the way to Yellowstone. We hadn't placed reservations for this stop so we made a few calls before we found this spot. Reservations over the phone and check-in were efficient. We had a suite, so the room was in general spacious and clean. Our only concern was on the way up to our room. When we walked through the dining area on the way to the elevator it wasn't straightened up and gave an unkempt appearance that we hoped didn't carry over to our room (it didn't -- the room was fine). Breakfast was of average with a quick checkout. So, if you are looking for a reasonable night's sleep outside of Billings at a decent rate with a good room, you might want to try here.

Nice, clean, friendly staff, good breakfast. walking distance to stores, restaurants but although they claim it is right outside of yellowstone, you have to drive a good distance to get to anything in yellowstone that you can see. But I guess if we didn't go to this hotel and drive the distance to the end of the park we wouldn't have had that wolf that ran down the hill and right in front of our car and stare right at us. I'd suggest staying in the park if you can. If not, this worked out fine and is cheaper.

We stayed here on our 5th day of our traveling trip, first thing we noticed was that we could not use the drive thru entry way because of all the motorcycles parked in the way. We checked in and complained about the blocking of the driveway and the attitude of the clerk just blew us off. Went out to eat at a local place and came back about an hour later and proceeded to our room on the ground floor which smelled like rotten garbage. Really smelled like something had died there. I called into the company about the issues and haven't heard a thing yet. The blocking of the drive-thru is a major safety issue with me, if I was to park my car there, it would be towed within and hour....

This is a clean place to stay with a nice pool. Pool is open 24 hours a day, so it was nice to be able to swim after a long day of flights into Billings.

They messed up our reservation initially, but made up for it by putting us up in a suite with a whirlpool. Desk staff took a while to sort it out, but was friendly.

Free internet access with a printer, which is a plus for printing out plane boarding passes.

Free continental breakfast was just okay.

Good start for a trip to yellowstone national park.
The rooms are absolutely clean, check-in was very friendly, breakfast was ok.
Only the noise from the surrounding area was a little bit bothersome - you might request a room to the left side which is probably more quiet.

unfortunately, spent a noisy nite there. crying baby next room, talkative people and motorcycles in the parking lot below my room late at nite made sleeping difficult. still, front desk was helpful and location was convenient.

Absolutely the best Hotel I have stayed at. Excellent frontdesk, pool opened 24 hours, gym also. This is important when traveling through such wide open, multiple tourists stops and you tend to get in late but want to get a quick swim in. Also had 24 hour laundry, again important for long travels. Breakfast was awesome and they left it out for late eaters. Will definitely return if I am in area.

Room was spacious and clean. Very well setup for business or family, I mix the two.
