We stayed one night in September ($170). I see now you can get a room for $58. AT that price it might be worth considering - but do read this review first! Issues we experienced... 1. When we checked into our room we noticed there was no deadbolt, chain, or other secondary locking mechanism. There were indications of a possible... More

I'm a business traveler who spends 100+ nights a year in hotels. This was the worst place in recent memory. Booked the room in advance, which they charged on my credit card. Had to leave a day early, the extra night was non-refundable. Rude staff, no work desk, lots of traffic noise, no morning coffee much less breakfast. Not that... More

We stayed two nights here. We arrived late at night and the key was left for us and everything went smoothly for such a late evening (the key fit the door and it was where we were told). The rooms are equipped with a mini kitchen which is great for cooking. The beds are comfy and are 10/10 compared to... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. Our room was clean and neat, not fancy but comfortable. The things that were not up to par were the TV reception which was very spotty but usually bad. The WiFi did not work in our room and we had to go to the office to be able to get on. This is a... More

Holes in window wall where rod apparently removed, no inside safety chain as it is hanging with nothing to slide into to secure door. Significant black mold in bathroom tub and on baseboard, hole in tub on inside, and faucet in tub almost falling off. Main door jam... More

It was recommended we stay here because the price more affordable than most in the area. The view from the room is of the National Elk Refuge which gorgeous. It is an older hotel but they have put $ into the beds and bathrooms. The mattress and linens are very nice and comfortable. The staff is friendly, rooms are very... More

I booked this motel 5 months in advance and paid one nights stay at the time of booking. Really bad place to book if there's any chance of cancellation, two weeks before your reservation, they charge your credit card!!!! Very unhappy with that business practice.

We flew into JAC late in the evening and wanted something close by as we were heading to Grand Tetons the next morning. Very convenient and a beautiful view. Kitchenette was very dated but we didn't have time to use it so that was ok.

This is an older hotel with some upgrades in the room. We stayed on the second floor with an upstairs balcony. The room was spacious and the bed was comfortable. It is only a minute outside of town, just a little to far to walk but still able to if you want. Compared to other hotels in the area, this... More
