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

I just needed a quiet place to stay. This place was inexpensive but had "great value" reviews. I just wanted to write and say that I whole heartedly agree! It was very clean, had nice carpet that felt good on your feet, a kitchenette, and a jetted tub. The linens and towels were definitely upgraded. It this is your price... More

This place appeals to me for 2 reasons. 1. Location. 2. Value. We were there in winter to ski and stayed here for the value. Glad we did. We got in late and only saw a person for 5 minutes at check-in. We left early in the morning and in between didnt interact with a single staff person - just... More

I stayed here one night with a friend. Lodging in Jackson can be expensive; this was fine for the price. The room was clean, the beds were good, the lighting was adequate. The room had a small microwave and a small fridge. We had a ground floor room; this is a two-story property with no elevator, so the upstairs rooms... More

We recently stayed at the Elk Refuge Inn for a ski weekend at Jackson Hole and were very pleasantly surprised. In terms of value (what you pay vs. what you get) I can't imagine there's a better deal within 50 miles of JH. It's a bit of an older hotel (I think the kitchen in our room had a stove... More
