I can almost recommend this place. Overall it is an updated, clean basic place to stay. It's way overpriced, but so is everyplace in town. The two problems are the lack of privacy shades on the window of the first floor rooms. This is a standard motel. People are walking right outside the window day and night. There is only... More

Arrived late and our check-in envelope was in a box outside the office. Room was clean and spacious. Nothing to rave about. Right across from the reserve. Less than 30 mins to Gran Teton, NP. Less than 5 minutes to downtown Jackson. Closest to the airport.

Online, the pictures of the inn made it look much nicer. Pros: close to all the restaurants & shops, close to Grand Teton park, kitchenette with fridge, microwave, cooktop stove, sink to wash dishes, toaster, coffee maker, & dining set with 4 chairs. Linens looked clean. Cons: very dated in every way & it could use some sprucing up. The... More

The hotel was nice. Nothing exceptionally good or bad. The room was pretty small--not really an issue as it was just me and my wife, however both my wife and I immediately commented on how close the bed was to the large, front window (we had to make some adjustments to the blinds to make sure no one could see...

We stayed here for one night during our visit to Grand teton National park. This was definetely an economic place to stay near Grand teton and very close to all Grand Teton attractions. Refrigerator, microwave in room. Free coffee at the front office. Recently updated facility and is qeiet and comfortable. I would definetely stay here longer in next visit.

Loved staying here. Places you close to Jackson for restaurants, shopping, gasoline, and just south of the Grand Tetons National Park. Very clean, spacious interior for an inn. Rustic décor. Staff were very welcoming and accommodating. Appreciated having a room refrigerator. Setting was serene, with elk refuge across street for overwintering herds, and Tetons towering nearby. Also saw Yellowstone from... More

We've stayed in Jackson Hole several times, but this was our first visit to the Elk Refuge. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Our room was on the upper level with easy access on the road leading behind the hotel, which provided at-the-door access to our room. We had 2 queen beds, a dining table, stovetop, microwave, coffee pot,... More

This stay was the highlight of our overnights. We stayed two nights here. Our front door/patio overlooked the Elk Refuge. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was minimal consisting of doughnuts and muffins and coffee. We had a kitchenette with microwave and stove. A refrigerator was a welcome sight. The bed was very comfortable and clean. We would... More

We really liked this simple, clean hotel. We were able to fit all 6 of us in the room comfortably and the location was good for us. Huge bathroom! It is a little up the road from downtown, but was close enough that it didn't cost us any time. Also, it is very close to the National Museum of Wildlife... More

After four days in a tent my family of four, with kids 10 and 8, really needed a bed. We had room 101 which had two king beds, a sleeper sofa, nice bathroom, fridge and microwave. There was no noticeable highway noise that we heard. Beds were very comfortable, great linens, soft comforter with a duvet cover. Room was spacious... More
