We had a great stay at this property. Overall great location, friendly staff, very clean, comfortable beds, great breakfast offering. We stayed in a room with 2 kings which was perfect for our family. Would highly recommend this location just outside Yellowstone’s west entrance.

Hotel's Favorite
We were here for five nights at the end of May. This was our second stay at the BW Desert Inn; the last time we stayed here was in August 2011. The location of the hotel is convenient to walk around West Yellowstone and is only a couple blocks from the West entrance to YNP. Our stay here could not have been better. All the staff were friendly, the room was clean, the beds were comfortable and the AC worked fine. Housekeeping was done daily. We did not have chance to use the indoor pool. We were most impressed with the hot breakfast; it was great! Offered were eggs - either scrambled or omelettes, meat was sausage or bacon, french toast, biscuits, cereal, waffle makers, fresh fruit, pastries, juices, coffee, tea, and milk. And the gentlemen who took care of the breakfast area did an amazing job of keeping items stocked, thoroughly cleaning the tables & chairs, emptying the trash, etc. The BW Desert Inn could serve as a model as to how to properly manage hotels. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would certainly return.

This location did quite well and was able to space out breakfast and include all options. The staff was on top of refills and cleanliness. This was not the case with all Best Westerns in this trip. I understand the challenge though and appreciate Best Western above other locations we've stayed at with our dogs.

Good location. Plenty of places to shop and eat within walking. Good dining for breakfast. Waffles, whipped cream, hard boiled eggs, choice of sausage Room was nice. Did have a TV malfunction but not important to report until checkout. Would come back again.

If you don't mind having the guests above you clomp around playing football/rugby/soccer wearing concrete filled boots for several hours every night and the front desk tells you there is nothing they can do because it's not past 10pm, then you'll love it here. Two of our three nights here we experienced several hours of this loud behavior from the guests above us and on the second evening we contacted the front desk and were told that the quiet hours policy began at 10pm and there was nothing they could do.
