We chose this hotel based on the website photos, low cost and proximity to Grand Teton National Park. Upon arrival, I walked into the office to check in. There were two young people behind the counter, and when I told them I was checking in I got blank stares. Another woman came out of the back room and was able... More

Very close to town only about a mile or less. Plenty of parking and the staff was very friendly. Would be happy to stay there again, nice clean room with small kitchenette. Next time I might want to stay in one of the rooms on the second floor, a little better view?

While the carpet was new (and dark brown) and the beds were fairly comfortable, the air conditioning didn't work after about 3 hrs, the water pressure was pathetically low (and made the shower nearly worthless). Guests must know that Elk Refuge Inn is right next to the only highway between Jackson Hole and Teton National Park, so traffic is non... More

The rooms are too small for the furniture, but the decor is great. The ground floor units are too close to parking (a sidewalk away) and the main road South into Jackson is a mere 50 feet away. You cannot walk to town. The room was clean and comfortable and it had real HD TV. Way too NOISY with the... More

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.
