This is one of the few hotels that remains open during the off season. It was nice, well maintained, and comfortable. The pool was well kept and the hot tub was a welcome amenity after hiking all day.

Hotel is very clean and staff was very friendly. Our room had two queen beds, microwave, mini fridge and coffee maker. The hotel is walking distance to a number of restaurants on the Main Street of town. We enjoyed our stay at this hotel and would stay there again. Even though we were there in the "off season," the hotel...

Perfect location to stay when going to Yellowstone national park, only minutes from west entrance, price was cheaper than others hotels. Man at the front desk was very nice and helpful, I been in many other hotels that offered free breakfast but this's the best hot breakfast with a lot of options. Indoor pool and jacuzzi was nice too especially...

Our room was very close to elevator, pool and breakfast area, but we still felt like it was quiet enough to be comfortable. The breakfast area was so clean and there were many choices. The desk clerk gave very good restaurant suggestions along with a map. We were able to walk to most of the restaurants. The room was clean...

I have found that Best Western motels in the west are always so much better than the ones back east. This motel did not disappoint us. Very clean, nicely furnished, good breakfast and friendly personnel. After touring the park during the day we would go back to town where we had multiple choices for dinner and shopping all within walking...

If you want to be close to the west entrance of Yellowstone, this is the place to stay. It's less than a mile to the entrance. The staff is friendly, the beds are comfortable, the rooms and property are clean and the breakfast is excellent. You are also within walking distance to the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center, grocery store...

This hotel lived up to everything promised, plus they were able to give us a last minute reservation while traveling with our dog! Great location, just outside the West Entrance to Yellowstone! Wished they would have served a breakfast, but no big deal. Went to McDonalds for a quick bite!

The Best Western Desert Inn exceeded our expectations. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. Our room was clean and tidy and we slept great. We had everything we needed while we were there. Their indoor swimming pool looked very clean and many people used it, but we did not take advantage of the pool during our stay. I...

The hotel itself was great. Clean rooms, nice pool, decent breakfast. However when we made our reservation we told them we had two dogs. No problem but an additional charge. No big deal. We get there at 930 at night tired from an eleven hour drive and Jeffrey at the desk had no idea we had dogs with us. He...

The room is quite spacious and nice. It appeared clean except in the corner by the light and chair where the vacuum had not cleaned it looked like for many days. The breakfast in the morning was fine and there appeared to be enough room for everyone that gathered.
