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

I stayed here for 4 nights. The motel is central to walking to almost anything you would want to do in Jackson. But, I did not care for having to go to the motel office twice for my wi fi to operate, their so called breakfast is at 8 am during the week (that's the middle of the day) so... More

The rooms of El Rancho Motel are next door to a restaurant that turns into a night club with loud music and people singing and yelling all night. The place is fairly old, with my bedside table lamp not working which makes it difficult to reach the bed in the dark.

The best thing about this hotel is that it is in town and we only stayed for one night before our flight home. The place is all-around in need of an update. Although totally run down it was clean enough. We were probably in the room no more than a total of 8 hours and glad to leave. If you... More

Cheap Price okay for just one night closd to downtown. Looked like the old drive by hotels built in the 1950's - You Check in at another Hotel the Anvil just around the corner. The carpets seemed to be a little damp. You could see datylight under the front door so cold air came in. The room next to us... More

One of the more inexpensive hotels in Jackson. Prices in Jackson tend to be extremely high, el Rancho is one of the least expensive. While still expensive for what you get, it is more reasonably priced then most other hotels. The hotel is definitely older, with small rooms. The rooms are clean, the staff is friendly and helpful. It is... More

There are lots of places to stay in Jackson and Jackson Hole. If you just want a comfortable room for a night, El Rancho is fine. We went out at 5.50 am to view wildlife around the Tetons (saw Moose) and had breakfast at the Grand Teton Village.

I really liked out stay at the El Rancho...I wasn't sure what to think based on mixed reviews but I would recommend it...it has character. Most things in Jackson are expensive so $77/night was a really good deal. Our room was teeny tiny but it didn't bother us. They offered a few small things for breakfast (yogurt, granola, fruit, coffee)... More

We stayed for a couple of nigths at this hotel last September when travelling through Grand Teton National Park as a couple. The small motel room was basic but big enough and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast in the lobby was adequate but a bit drap (retailed muffins, tasteless apples and some yogurts). No seating. The only two really annoying... More
