“Good location for town centre”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Clean, comfortable, and very convenient location a short stroll into town. Breakfast was just ok, I wish they didnt use polystyrene cups and paper plates. If you have children, be warned that the cuddly toy buffalo on each bed is not a free gift and you may well feel obliged to buy one!

Thank you for taking some time to leave your thoughts about our property. We are glad to hear your stay was comfortable. Thank you for your comments about the cups and plates. We do try to find ways to lessen our carbon footprint but we are limited by supplier availability in Jackson. Other ways we are environmentally friendly though include our soap recycling program, our linen conservation programs and our energy saving lights. In the future we will continue to expand our "Green" policies. Thanks again for staying with us and we look forward to hosting you again.

Room 240. Highs: reliable hot shower and bath, hairdryer, table and chairs, great wi-fi, good heating unit, fridge, microwave, pleasant reception staff, very clean, masses of space around sink for toiletries, good choice at breakfast. Lows: the room smelled ‘old’ which was only noticeable when we came in from the outside, the toilet/rest room door opened in a slightly awkward place, and a maintenance man didn’t believe us that the hairdryer kept cutting out just because it worked when he tested it (but he did replace it). Definitely recommended.

Given room near reception nr Coke machine downstairs, had to ask to be moved due to a noise sounding like a boiler/washing machines .Reception said they did not know what it was.Other room was fine though they do seem to have a lot of plumbing noises.Rooms clean and of good standard.Good location in Jackson. Fairly good breakfast in nearby Cafe so plenty of tables for a change.

We stayed here 2 nights and liked the location. It was convenient to walk to downtown and nearby restaurants. The office staff was helpful and called us when our room was ready. They also gave us a sack of samples when we left. You walk to a restaurant behind the hotel for a continental breakfast. It was convenient for us to use as a base to drive to the Tetons. They also have a guest laundry.

I would stay there again. The staff was very professional - the room was clean and exactly as described. Good location to walk to everything in Jackson and handy to get to Jackson Hole ski resort area. Good value good location, clean room, and nice staff - made for a great 3 nights and we recommend it highly.

Best motel we stayed in during a two trip through Colorado and Wyoming. Clean, front desk staff very helpful, for a continental breakfast it was very good, room large and well appointed,Pool, laundry, within walking distance of town centre. Also Bubba's steak & rib joint within walking distance provided excellent meals (steak, salad, etc)

This hotel is very well located for exploring Jackson. It is an "old" wooden structure with a bit of character but also with very clean, comfortable, well-equipped rooms. The free Wi-fi was excellent with reliable, speedy connection. Breakfast is included and is average at best. Staff are friendly and helpful. Overall, a good choice.
