We stayed here first in 2010 (3 people). It was good value for under $90, good size room with fridge and microwave. Not fancy, but nice enough. Came back in 2013 with in-laws and got same room. Was surprised price went up about $40, but room was just remodled and much nicer. Great spot north of town across from Elk... More

I just needed a quiet place to stay. This place was inexpensive but had "great value" reviews. I just wanted to write and say that I whole heartedly agree! It was very clean, had nice carpet that felt good on your feet, a kitchenette, and a jetted tub. The linens and towels were definitely upgraded. It this is your price... More

This place appeals to me for 2 reasons. 1. Location. 2. Value. We were there in winter to ski and stayed here for the value. Glad we did. We got in late and only saw a person for 5 minutes at check-in. We left early in the morning and in between didnt interact with a single staff person - just... More

I stayed here one night with a friend. Lodging in Jackson can be expensive; this was fine for the price. The room was clean, the beds were good, the lighting was adequate. The room had a small microwave and a small fridge. We had a ground floor room; this is a two-story property with no elevator, so the upstairs rooms... More

We recently stayed at the Elk Refuge Inn for a ski weekend at Jackson Hole and were very pleasantly surprised. In terms of value (what you pay vs. what you get) I can't imagine there's a better deal within 50 miles of JH. It's a bit of an older hotel (I think the kitchen in our room had a stove... More

This hotel offers everything you need when visiting Grand Teton NP. Nice, clean rooms, enough space, well maintained, well located and all at a reasonable price. I'd choose a hotel like this over a more expensive one located in the park any day. Although breakfast wasn't included the manager offered us free donuts anyway. Great. The staff was also very...

Not a new place, but well kept-up, especially the interior. Large single room. Everything there - good fridge, microwave, coffee, wifi. Superbly comfortable bed and bedding. Excellent maid service. Free muffins in the morning. Well back from the highway: quiet. Great view across the valley. Location just north of town avoids hitting the backed-up traffic heading into town late afternoons....

We stayed at the Elk Refuge in September this year and were generally quite pleased with our choice. It is a 20min walk from Jackson town itself but is perfectly located for the short drive into the GT park. Breakfast is very basic with Muffins and Coffee but there are plenty of places to eat in Jackson. We walked into... More

It's always nice when the room exceeds your expectations. I knew it would be an older property, but for a week long stay to explore/photograph the Tetons scenery/wildlife, the price was unbeatable. My 2nd floor room, with balcony, was excellent for my purposes, and the bed was comfortable. I feel guilty not providing a '5', but it is an older... More

staffs there were nice and helpful. It is located by the highway but didn't affect me sleep at all and I like the setting of the room. You get the view of the mountain from your room. After all it was a good time there.
