The only issue we had is that there weren't any security locks on the doors. Rooms are great, clean & comfortable. Quiet despite being on the main road into the Tetons. Front desk staff is helpful & courteous.

This hotel has one thing going for it: location. 9 minutes from airport and 5 minutes from town. Rooms were a good size and beds were clean. Shower had quite a bit of hair in it and room was dated but mostly clean. Had power strips and outlet extenders which made me nervous. Flat screen tv with satellite, coffee pot,... More

This motel is very convenient to Jackson, maybe a quick mile. Itiis also a good starting place to head to the parks north. We checked in after-hours and picked up our key from a box. We stayed 2 nights. We never saw any staff or housekeeping but knew they had been there because maid service was evident. This was a... More

convenient location to town and the Grand Tetons at a reasonable price. Security is a concern as there is only one lock on the doors (no deadbolt). The window lock was broken. Still could use some updating but was clean. The staff was very accommodating.

We stayed in a second floor room with a balcony overlooking the Elk Refuge. Even though the elk were gone for the season it was a beautiful view. The room was large and comfortable with a well equipped kitchen. The hotel is out of town but close enough and also close to the Wildlife Art Museum which is great. We... More

This is a tiny way out of Jackson and directly opposite the elk refuge. Old fashioned rooms with key entry, lovely new carpets that felt luscious on your feet. Bed was large and there were five pillows on offer! Bathroom was fine, shower was average. There is coffee on offer in the office- not a twenty four hour office- you... More

We stayed 1 night in this Inn. Our room was on the top floor, meaning a bigger room and a balcone compared to ground floor rooms. Plenty of space, but inside it needs a lot of maintenance done. Taps dripping, balcony sliding door lock broken, out of order fridge in the kitchen (but replaced by new standalone fridge). WiFi was... More

we pulled our rv and weren't sure when we would arrive. Camp ground not open yet so they helped us out of a spot. Great customer service, We had everything we need in our king suite even a jacuzzi! We have a fantastic view of the Elk. Got to see a herd first thing.

We stayed 3 nights visiting the elk refuge, Jackson Hole and Teton national park. We stayed with friends and shared a one room apartment. The place is clean, cozy and had a fully stocked kitchen. The location is great with a wonderful view over the elk refuge. There is a fireplace and a barbeque. Jackson Hole is a 10min. car... More

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
