Decent hotel, but WAY overpriced because of the location. Breakfast area is too small to accommodate all guests. The atmosphere inside the hotel (hallways and elevator) was extremely stuffy. Next time will check out a similarly overpriced hotel in West Yellowstone.

This is a typical, average Best Western. It is expensive for what you get, but then it is only 3 minutes from the wet entrance to Yellowstone National Park. The room were clean and comfortable. The room came with a refrigerator and microwave. The internet is horrible. It is slower than dial up. This is by the far the worst internet service that I have ever had, anywhere in the world. I am also not exagerating either. The eployees are not friendly, do not smile and do not make you feel welcome (with the exception of the young lady at the front desk who helped us with checkout this morning (7-11-14). the older woman who was with her would not smile at all. The same goes in ehte evening. Not very helpful and it seemed as if we were doing them a favor by checking in to the hotel. You could tell by the attitude of the employees that they did not really care about anything. they took no pride in who they work for or te company the work for. This has to be on the owners. the breakfast is a typical Best Western Free breakfast. Some hot items, some cold items, bad coffee. The presentation of the buffet was pretty sloppy (even for Best Western) with the hot items being piled on top of each other (Denver omlettes). There was no one in site to restcok the items either, alothough they did not run out while we were there (although they were close and the bottom of the pile was not very appetizing). The buffet only runs from 6:00-9:00 am which in our opinion is a little short on time length as most freebreakfasts typically run from 6:00-10:00. I would have rated this higher if they had any sembalence of what an internet connection is (I would be happy to pay for it too) or if the employees seemed to care.

The Best Western in West Yellowstone was very expensive and very average. The desk staff was not overly friendly but helpful when approached with questions. The bed left a lot to be desired as did the pillows. The hotel was in a good area and looked nice from the outside. The breakfast was good but again pretty average.

The good:
Comfy beds, nice staff, great location, standard breakfast lots of parking

The bad
Horrible slow internet, dial up speed at best...

The night clerks were pretty clueless and created a mess that I just gave up on and the morning staff cleaned up in 2 minutes flat...

Very overpriced you are basically paying for a 80 dollar hotel anywhere else in the us over 200!

All in all we enjoyed our stay, there is a subway across the street, and lots of other food options

First off the price was way too high and the staff couldn't care less. Their attitude was take it or leave it. They also wouldn't redeemed the promotion of stay 3 nights get 4th night free. The room was hot because the air had not been turned on and right away we found a couple of spiders in the room. The WiFi is very spotty and the TV is not a 40" as advertised. Plus the noise level from other guests above and right out side was pretty bad. Will not recommend this place or stay here if ever in the area again.
