“Terrible. Don't stay there if you want to sleep!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

The rooms of El Rancho Motel are next door to a restaurant that turns into a night club with loud music and people singing and yelling all night. The place is fairly old, with my bedside table lamp not working which makes it difficult to reach the bed in the dark.

The best thing about this hotel is that it is in town and we only stayed for one night before our flight home. The place is all-around in need of an update. Although totally run down it was clean enough. We were probably in the room no more than a total of 8 hours and glad to leave. If you are staying for several days in Jackson, do yourself a favor and cross this place off your list.

Cheap Price okay for just one night closd to downtown. Looked like the old drive by hotels built in the 1950's - You Check in at another Hotel the Anvil just around the corner. The carpets seemed to be a little damp. You could see datylight under the front door so cold air came in. The room next to us they kept smaming the door never saw any employee's on premisis. The Continental breakfast at the Anvil was just Avgerage. Go some where else to stay like Motel 6 or Super 8 same price.

Room Tip: Go elsewhere if at all possible

One of the more inexpensive hotels in Jackson. Prices in Jackson tend to be extremely high, el Rancho is one of the least expensive. While still expensive for what you get, it is more reasonably priced then most other hotels. The hotel is definitely older, with small rooms. The rooms are clean, the staff is friendly and helpful. It is located in a small little alcove that avoids the noises of downtown yet you are only a couple blocks from the town square. If you are looking for an inexpensive stay in Jackson the El Rancho will work.

There are lots of places to stay in Jackson and Jackson Hole. If you just want a comfortable room for a night, El Rancho is fine. We went out at 5.50 am to view wildlife around the Tetons (saw Moose) and had breakfast at the Grand Teton Village.

I really liked out stay at the El Rancho...I wasn't sure what to think based on mixed reviews but I would recommend it...it has character. Most things in Jackson are expensive so $77/night was a really good deal. Our room was teeny tiny but it didn't bother us. They offered a few small things for breakfast (yogurt, granola, fruit, coffee) which was pretty good b/c a lot of the hotels that I looked at did not. I would stay here again. The room and bed were comfortable.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

We stayed for a couple of nigths at this hotel last September when travelling through Grand Teton National Park as a couple.

The small motel room was basic but big enough and the bed was comfortable.

Breakfast in the lobby was adequate but a bit drap (retailed muffins, tasteless apples and some yogurts). No seating.

The only two really annoying things were:
1- the only electric sockets in the room are old and nothing modern fits and stays plugged in. This includes the room TV, so they must be aware...
2- the shower head is really really low. I'm 6ft1 and could just about wet my armpits. That would still be high enough if the actual shower cabin was a bit bigger... but unfortunately not.

Bear in mind though that Jackson is an expensive place, and you probably won't find anything much better for the price.

Service was friendly.
