Located only two blocks from the west entrance to Yellowstone National Park, our guests are delighted at how close they are to the great outdoors. The Best Western Desert Inn is just 30 miles to Old Faithful, and our Main Street location is close to restaurants and shops. Whether a day of hiking the local trails or discovering a new favorite boutique sounds ideal, rest assured that a relaxing vacation is easy at our West Yellowstone hotel.
Guests at our West Yellowstone hotel enjoy fly fishing, hunting, hiking, snowmobiling and cross country skiing. There is no shortage of outdoor adventure to be had.
Of course, our West Yellowstone hotel guests also enjoy the spacious rooms and quality amenities we offer. Interior corridors with an elevator make you feel welcome and right at home. A large indoor pool and spa is the perfect place to relax after a day of exploration. A microwave, refrigerator and 40-inch HDTV's are in all rooms, which is perfect for longer stays.
Downhill skiing is a 45-minute drive away. Hebgen Lake is only 12 miles from our West Yellowstone hotel, and Quake Lake and Visitor Center is 23 miles from us. If you prefer to walk and see what our region has to offer, the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center is two blocks away, as well as the IMAX® Theater. Shops and casinos are right next door.
A full day of discovery needs to start with a hearty breakfast, and it's on us. A daily free buffet features sizzling hot eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy and of course pastries and fresh fruits, cereals and yogurt. Complete the most important meal of the day with a cup of 100% Arabica coffee and juices.
Reserve your conveniently located room at Best Western Desert Inn, where you will be steps from the most famous park in the US! Check for Yellowstone Park closures.
