This hotel was a very nice pleasant place. Sitting on the porch the next morning I was able to see deer crossing in the parking lot. Good family motel. I would stay here again if ever back in the Yellowstone Park. Easy access to the West gate.

We booked at the Cross Winds in advance, as we weren't sure we would find a room for two nights at Yellowstone National Park at the height of the season. We paid well over the odds for a comparable motel room for this reason. Good things: the staff were polite and civil, and the room was OK, though only perfunctorily... More

The Best Western Cross-Winds was a good place to stay in West Yellowstone. Friendly staff and clean rooms. Nothing special and breakfast room is very small and does not have that good of selection of items for the price paid for the room.

Rooms are very comfortable and up to date. Breakfast was adequate and was restocked very well as needed, problem is the eating area is really small and has few tables but overall it all worked out. Desk staff are very professional and helpful. Good location and within easy walking distance to several eating places and the grocery store.

While the building appeared to be old, the accommodations were as presented. The staff was helpful, the rooms were clean, as was the rest room. Staff asked each day if we needed any service. The location of the hotel was very close to the Park and that is a plus for me.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Yellowstone National Park is the first National Park in the world and for very good reason has been a top tourist destination since its opening in 1872. It's a WONDERLAND and the Crosswinds Inn is located right next to it. We are just 3 blocks from the West entrance which is the most popular way to enter the Park. This makes us the perfect base for you to see the parks many amazing geysers, grizzly bears, wolves, bison, elk and of course, Old Faithful, the most popular geyser on Earth! The Crosswinds Inn has 70 rooms that have ALL been completely renovated. We are a 100% non-smoking facility and we offer free continental breakfast and free Wi-Fi. We also allow pets in our designated pet rooms. All pets must be registered at time of check-in and we do charge a $20 one time pet cleaning fee. After a day spent amid natural wonders, relax in our heated indoor pool and whirlpool. ... more   less
