We had a permit to independently snowmobile in Yellowstone and, with the in-Park accommodations closed in early March, we needed a place to stay. This Best Western fit the bill perfectly, because it's only a few blocks from the Park entrance and you are allowed to snowmobile directly to the property. Winter rates were quite reasonable, the rooms are large...

We stayed at the Desert Inn for 3 nights in February 2016. The hotel is modern and well kept. The reception was prompt and efficient. Our King bed room was much larger than expected. It has a refrigerator and microwave, nice size flat screen TV, desk, couch, coffee table and generous closet and drawer space. The room was at least...

I have stayed here before with no problems. This time was different. When I first came into the room, there was a white rag on the floor. I tossed it off to the side as "it probably just fell off the maid's cart". Later that night, I noticed some girl's clothes on the floor next to the bench. I also...

This property location is excellent for XC skier,: Nordic and Skate skiers, at it is within 2 blocks of the Riverside Ski Trails of Yellowstone National Park. There was also quite a few snowmobile customers staying at this property, so they alspo must believe it is a good location.

Not sure and it was winter, but this looked like maybe the best option in town. It was a normal best western with typical conveniences . Very nice staff, large breakfast (could use more healthy choices) only down side was the heater unit runs constantly and a little loudly. Good location

Very good motel, very helpful staff. Breakfast was very good. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. We were there to enjoy the winter in Yellowstone National Park via Snow coach. I enjoyed being able to come into the lobby (breakfast area ) and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate after a day ion the park. Or anytime other time we...

Spent 3 night at the BW it was comfortable and quite for as busy as it was with the snowmobiles. We had brought our Doodles with us and had requested bottom floor close to a door. But nothing available when we got there so we're up stair, turned out not to be a problem. Hot breakfast (no Waffles) but lots...

Love the new design of the contemporary and comfortable look & feel of the rooms. Half of the hotel was still under renovation - but love the direction. It was my most comfortable hotel stay of three different hotels on my business trip - had my best sleep! Great value for the price - My choice for stay in Idaho...

We stayed here for 5 nights while touring Yellowstone and snowmobiling. The hotel was clean, quiet, and in a very convenient location. We ate breakfast here 2 mornings and it was fine--typical free breakfast fare. Cereal, toast, eggs, yogurt, and beverages. If you are not headed out early, wait a bit for the crowd to dissipate. The breakfast area gets...

From the outside, I wasn't impressed. This looks like what a hotel/motel looks like in Alaska (and that isn't a compliment.) There was enough parking for the vehicles (lots of snowmobiles.) The staff was friendly and check-in was quick. They have a public computer down by the breakfast area. The breakfast area has hot chocolate, cider and teas 24 hours...
