Spend more and find another place to stay. The rooms are tiny, smell terrible and the room didn't have wifi as advertised. It didn't work at all for the two nights I was there. The electrical outlets need to be replaced, anything I plugged in kept falling out. I couldn't wait to leave and move on to the next part... More

Stayed here for two nights and will never go back. The office is in the next hotel over. They list that wifi is available and it wasn't the whole time we were there. Office staff had no idea on how to fix it and didn't bother calling there service provider till I recommended it. When I complained about the wifi... More

Accommodation in Jackson is 'spendy' for sure, but at least lock a guests room after you 'clean' it. Twice after we got back from a days hiking in the Tetons we found our room unlocked, and given the close proximity these rooms have to the road, anyone could have helped themselves to our belongings. Having brought this to the managers... More

I want people to understand that this is an old hotel in the center of town. If you're looking for location, the El Rancho can't be beat. If you want luxury, go somewhere else. However, the room was clean, and cleaned every day we were there (4 days). The rooms would be so much nicer if they just replaced the... More

This motel is located in the heart of downtown Jackson. However, it was very difficult to find. The sign was barely visible from the street and check in was at the Anvil Hotel around the block. The location may be nice, but the hotel is not. The room was small and very dirty. The carpet and bed coverings were suspect,... More

Motel is not new, but looks that it never was updated. Office is several hundred yards from a building, so it's inconvenient to go every time to get something, i.e. hot water. Breakfast is the worst from similar places I have been before. Internet should be in a room, but it's not working even in the office.Rate is very overpriced... More

We didn't have high expectations for our room.. We were merely looking for a place to sleep in Jackson for a few nights.. Unfortunately we couldn't even sleep... The room was a little stuffy so we needed to keep the windows open for some cool air and there was no air conditioning in the rooms.. On the first night one... More

This motel is filthy. Windows stuck in frame. Mattress trashed, giving you a backache. Very poor service. They assured me my room would be ready for check-in at the standard time of 2:00 PM. It was not an they cared very little. They wanted me to pay more money to get a ready room that had a larger bed. The... More

Great position as you can walk easily downtown. Motel is old style but very clean inside the room and very quiet. The WIFI did not work at all despite a couple of trips to the Office. The hot water was very difficult to regulate - shower only seemed to be hot, sink only lukewarm. The bed was very comfortable though.... More
