The motel is very old, our bed was very old and we didn't sleep well. The place was quiet. The staff was okay. The bathroom was old but okay. The TV was an old CRT! Will not be going back. Drive the extra miles to Alpine, more choices.

A 3-week roadtrip though 10 American states gives you a good impression of the variety of American hotels and motels in both large cities and small towns - both quality- and pricewise. A definite highlight on our roadtrip was staying with Cindy and Len at the Swiss Mountain Motel in Thayne, WY after a visit to Yellowstone and Teton Nat'l... More

We visited friends in town ,we made new friends with Cindy and Len at the motel, the rooms were clean and fresh. Len showed me a great fishing spot. Cindy used her computer and booked me and my wife dinner at the Bar J chuck wagon in Jackson .We had a great time ,looking forward to come back. Thanks again.

While on a motorcycle trip through Yellowstone Park and Wyoming, we spent the night at the Swiss Motel. Len and Cindy were wonderful hosts. The Swiss Motel is a charming and affordable motel. Our room was very clean and comfortable. It was a great find!

The room is tiny. The size of a child's bedroom. It is musty smelling. There is no a/c. The beds are not comfortable. Had to fight the door to lock and unlock. Just overall disappointed. Would not recommend.

We couldn't quite make it to our destination that night. Every motel along the way was wither shut down for the night or full. Near midnight we happened upon Cindy and Len's place. Cindy welcomed us and took care of us immediately. We fell into bed and had a great night's sleep in a comfortable, clean, and affordable room. The... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel in September 2011. We had been to Yellowstone, driven to Jackson Hole thinking that there were plenty of hotels, only to find out that there was a bicycle race the next day and every hotel was full. Driving about an hour out of Jackson Hole at 8:00 at night with no vacancies... More
