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.

Because it is the "off season" we got a good deal on a balcony room ($58). The room has a flat screen TV, microwave, a galley kitchen, a table with four chairs, and parking right outside our room door. A fan for white noise is helpful to block out sounds from the busy road and noisy guests. The room is... More

I booked this motel because we had an early morning flight out of the Jackson airport and this was on the right side of town. The room was ok, clean and functional. When we went to sleep I started to hear a noise like a heater going on periodically during the night. The heater was not in the room so... More

I must admit that I'm a bit of a 'hotel snob' so the price point of this inn ($49) for the room made me very nervous but we only needed somewhere close to the airport for one night . The room was bigger that most 4 star hotels , the linens on the bed and in the bathroom were immaculate... More

Not down from the mountains yet is what I heard when asking "where are the elks?" Conveniently located between Jackson downtown and Teton Mtns National Park, and further, Yellowstone Park, this old motel offers lots of road noise as it is on one of the main roads into town. Simple, but with unusual gracious touches, like the rose folded out... More

This roadside motel, albeit with a view of the Elk Refuge (no elks in September) is clean and convenient for a one night stay close to the JH airport. The rooms have been renovated, newish carpet, clean and comfortable beds and linens, small kitchenettes, noisy air conditioner. Choose the upstairs rooms with a small balcony overlooking the Refuge and a... More
