Depending on the time of year that you go, you can pay $69.00 per night or $199 per night. The hotel is quaint and clean. The rooms are quite spacious. The location of the hotel is across from the so called "ELK Refuge" which is in fact a Elk hunting zone so do not expect to see Elk across the... More

We stayed here one night as it was very reasonably priced. It is an older motel and if you expect a 5 star hotel this is not for you. The front desk clerk was a nice young man who let us into our room a little early so we could get out and enjoy the sites. The room was older... More

We just stayed for one night... The beds/pillows were neatly maintained. The room looked artistic with some nice wall paintings. Amenities (TV, coffee, restroom) were good. The hotel is very close to Grand Teton National Park and the city of Jackson, WY. The hotel environment was peaceful. We did a late night check-in and we were given clear instructions about... More

This is a good motel for visiting the Tetons and Jackson Hole. It is close to airport and a short drive to downtown Jackson Hole. There are family rooms with kitchenettes. They also have muffins and coffee for breakfast. If you don't need a pool, this is a good choice.

Recently my wife and I booked a room here for our visit to Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park. We made the reservation well in advance for a week in mid October. I should point out that their contract clearly states that there are no refunds after 14 days prior to arrival. However, this is when the gov't decided... More

Room 103 on the ground floor was nice yet we noticed a very loud noise - vibration and noise coming from the rear of the room. We told management within 30 minutes of checking in and were told it would not continue after 8 p.m. We checked in at 5 p.m. Went to dinner and came back to hear the... More

Great bed, clean, lots of fabulous pillows, new carpet, wet bar AND a jacuzzi for $70?! You betcha. Just down the road from historical downtown Jackson Hole and close to Museum of Wild Art and South Entrance of Yellowstone NP and Grand Teton NP. What more could you want? Why not 5 stars.... Some minor maintenance issues but did not... More

The Elk Refuge Inn is a nice place to stay while visiting Jackson Hole. It is about 2 miles from town, maybe 6 miles from the airport, and is across the street from the elk refuge. Some of the rooms are being renovated but the place is clean and roomy. The only issues we had were with their customer service.... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in late September and were just so pleased with the staff and the accommodations. The king size bed was so comfortable with wonderful pillows. The ambiance and lighting in the room was perfect -- right down to the sweet smelling toiletries. The room was spotless and the view of the elk... More

After enjoying a day in Yellowstone, we drove the 50 miles to Jackson. NO place to stay in town. This one is located about 1/2 mile from the town. Very 50's place. The room was large with a small kitchen & dining area. Beds were comfortable. (Only complaint was the AC is near the ceiling so the air blows right... More

Dear Knoxtntraveler_11, I’m so glad you ended up staying with us when you came to Jackson Hole! The summer season is very busy and that continues till about mid-October. Although we have done many renovations over the years, our building is historic in Jackson. Next time you stay with us look for the old pictures of the hotel in the... More
