“Okay ....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

We had an overnight stay in one of their family loft rooms on the way from Yellowstone to Salt Lake City. The room itself was roomy and clean but the bathroom really lets the room down. When you enter the room you have the vanity and sink right next to the door. Then you have a pretty awful shower recess. We've experienced worse, but that was in a 500 year old building in Rome. Everything else in the room was OK. The staff member who did our check in was indifferent in the extreme. The staff member who did our check out was excellent. She was friendly and helpful and gave us a great recommendation for breakfast next door at Bubbas. All in all, this is an OK place to stay if you just need a place for overnight.

We stayed in one of the "deluxe" cabins... (our was "no pets".. they have pet friendly units as well!) It was clean, had upscale silky and comfy bedding.... Loved it.... and a bargain, compared to most of the hotels in town! We didn't hear any construction noise... but it IS just outside.. so ask about it before you book! Only a five minute walk into town...... (the closer you get to town, the more the rooms seem to cost....)

We found ourselves homeless after the government shutdown of the National parks. We ended up at Elk Country Inn and were very pleased. We stayed in a standard room (not cabin). The room was quite spacious, had a microwave, and small fridge. The room appearance was nice, it was very clean, bed comfortable, and staff friendly. I would not hesitate to stay here again. For the Jackson area, this lodge is a great value.

The room was clean and comfortable. The room we were in had 2 queen beds with another queen bed in the loft. It was prefect for the 4 of us. The Inn is located within walking distance of town. They serve coffee and fruit in the mornings. The only complaint we have is the road construction in front of the Inn. It is of no fault of the Inn, but can making getting in and out hard at times. We stayed here 2 nights and was pleased with it. I forgot to mention, you can make yourself hot chocolate in the lobby and it is very good. (plus its free) and if you want to eat at a restaurant, Bubba's BBQ is next door and very good, great Bbq and breakfast.

The log cabins are terrific--cute, clean and the beds are extremely comfortable.
There is construction right next to the hotel so it is very noisy so if you like quiet, you may want wait until the street improvements are complete.
We left the hotel in the morning and had a wonderful day in Jackson and Teton National Park. When we returned to our room, it had not been cleaned and this was a problem for us since my wife had been ill the night before and we specifically asked for clean sheets and towels. The front desk personnel offered to give us clean sheets and towels which was good, but not what we expected.

Would we stay here again, yes. Will we wait to come back until the construction is done, yes. And, hopefully, they will clean our room next time or the next review will not be so kind.

Room Tip: Deluxe log cabins are cozy and romantic.

The hotel was within walking distance of the city centre but the road works were a nuisance to get there (no fault of the hotel of course). Despite the clean and spacious rooms, I had two nights of disruptive sleep which I attribute to the oddly shaped pillows. I took advantage of the laundry facilities and the free hot drinks available which I appreciated. I felt though, that the customer service was lacking which is a priority for me.

We stayed three nights while visiting Grand Teton. We had been on the road two weeks and were getting a little tired of motel rooms when we arrived. The rooms here were very comfortable and quiet; plus the cleaning staff is the best. It's a short walk to the center of town, so leave the car at the Inn because traffic in the heart of Jackson is terrible. This is partly due to a road construction project, so things might get better. The Inn has a lot of rooms, and offering breakfast would be really tough, but how about working out a deal for discounted breakfast at Bubba's right next door? It could be a win-win for both businesses.
