My family and I stayed at this hotel while I was in Jackson Hole to run the half marathon there in June. I would say it was the nicest hotel we have stayed at in a long time. The room was large, very nice, and perfect for my big family. The service was excellent, and the price was the best... More

We live only 4 hours away, so we come to Jackson regularly. This was a holiday weekend, and we didn't plan enough ahead, so our options were limited and we ended up here. I can't say anything especially bad about the place - the room we had is basic and clean. The front desk people are friendly and helpful. It... More

We felt like we were back in the 60's when we checked into this beauty. Beds were terrible, we've never stayed in a place where we could clearly hear the conversation of the people above us (at 5:30am). OMG, the breakfast! The restaurant where they have free breakfast would be shut down almost everywhere. Filthy, food was cold, coffee was... More

Thank you for your comments. We are sorry to hear that your experience was less than great. We have ongoing maintenance and cleaning, and we welcome feedback that helps us improve. Although we do offer what we advertise, which is traditional continental breakfast, made up of mostly cold food items due to our limited kitchen facilities, we appreciate your feedback... More

First place the rollaway was actually there when we arrived. Staff extremely welcoming and helpful -excellent. Room O.K. but location was right on the main road and layout of bathroom area not the best-sink for washing hands not with toilet. Breakfast barely adequate unless you like sugar and more sugar. Overall, in an expensive resort like Jackson reasonable accomodation at... More

We were pleased with friendliness on check in, but soon realized that there wasn't enough parking for all the guests. They put red cones to block off at least 10 parking spots for a bus rather than drop the people and then park. Several customers moved the cones and parked. When my husband moved a cone so I could park,... More

Thank you for this response. Parking can definitely be one of the biggest challenges the town of Jackson faces in the busy summer months, but we regret that our staff did not handle the situation with more tact! We are happy that it sounds like the issue was eventually resolved. We are also happy to hear that our staff handled... More

Everything is very very expensive in Jackson. We stayed at this motel for $200 plus taxes on a Monday night in August 2014. The exterior is very dingy, the most striking feature outside the room is the massive national park like garbage can. The tiny fridge in the room had the type of dents that you would expect from been... More

Thank you for this review. While it's not fun to hear that we didn't live up to your (or our) expectations, it will make us better to know it. We trust that the staff was able to clear up the misconception about the hairdryer (included in every room) and iron (available upon request) and that they were able to provide... More

I booked the Painted Buffalo Inn because of both location and price and because we needed place for a total of 7 people, which they were able to provide. From the outside the Inn looks like a straightforward motel. However, the attention to detail like the stuffed animals in each room, cold drinks always available in the office, pleasant pool... More

Was looking for a place to spend the night when we found this place. Room was nice and clean, beds were comfortable. Had a really good rest here. But the price is definitely on the high side. Check in and out was easy.

Rolled into town quite late we were able to get the last room.......although it was a bit confusing to find the room, the staff was very nice, except the one thing that bothered me was the girl at the front desk announced to the staff in the back that she just sold the last room like she won the lottery...

Thank you for this response. We appreciate the positive feedback, and we are grateful to hear the not-so-great about the check-in issue as well.Being such a busy and popular destination it can sometimes be necessary to inform all other front desk clerks that the last room has been sold immediately so they don't also sell it, but we regret that...
