“Very satisfied!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

We stayed here recently on a snowmobile trip because we could not get into the Snow King Resort the first night. It is conveniently located just 2 blocks from the Snow King Resort. This is a small Mom and Pop motel, that is very dated..but it was very clean! Very roomy and we were very pleased.

This hotel had a good location with a 50s vibe. It looked like a motel that Thelma and Louise would have used in their movie: one story building, decor from the 50s, no hair dryer unless asked for, electrical outlets in the bathroom not suited for today's odd sized plugs, BUT it was pretty clean and a great value! Although the rating isn't too high, it was a great place to crash for the night.

Recently spent one night here, by myself. The room was clean, but very small. Location is in a fairly quiet residential area a few blocks from downtown. I got what I bargained for, one of the cheapest places to stay here.

This motel is fine if you are looking for the basics and don't want to pay loads more: Jackson is expensive to stay in so your dollar doesn't go far. We stayed here one night on the way through to Yellowstone. The room was clean and everything worked, had a fridge, microwave, TV, clean bed, clean bathroom, working AC, coffee machine, free wifi, etc. It's also very convenient to everything in town - easy walking distance.

This motel is very pleasant and it's in a nice quiet area just out of the city center. From here you can reach all the nearby attractions. Rooms are nice and clean. Would stay here again. No breakfast but in 5 minutes you can reach the local Starbucks :-)

Rudest reception I've ever had. We arrived there around 2PM and found a note on the door. We had to call to get a receptionist. We have cellphones from Europe, just a quick call would cost us a few dollars. We called anyway.. somebody picked up, said something quick but didn't hang up, she walked to us with the connection still open... and then the girl didn't say anything, nothing, no hello. The first thing she said was; that's 120 US for a night...

So wha'ts going on? girl is underpaid is getting back to her boss by getting bad reviews on tripadvisor?

Anyway don't let the outside fool you, it's not a nice place, we found it be clean but our room was very outdated, biggest problem was the AC, it was very loud and it stank! Not going back there, sorry.

Thank you for reviewing the Cottages at Snow King in Jackson, Wyoming. We value and appreciate all of our guest that stay at our property. All of us here are glad that you had a clean stay with us and hope you enjoyed your time spent in the beautiful area! Jackson Hole is truly the "Last of the Old West" and has something to offer everyone who visits the gorgeous landscape. I would like to apologize for the confusion that incurred during the reservation. We have a limited staff here so as managers we wear many hats including cleaning the rooms we prepare for the days arrivals. We would like to extend our sincere apologies for we pride ourselves in providing a excellent customer experience and we hope to have the opportunity to accommodate you in the future. Please take care.

Title says it all. For about $80 a night (June) you'd hope you'd at least have clean bedding to sleep in, sadly that was not the case. Aside from that major problem, the stay was acceptable.
Keep in mind this is one of the cheapest lodging choices in the Jackson area so you can't expect luxury for this price. Do yourself a favor and stay in Grand Teton NP itself. Jackson Lake Lodge is lovely... and clean. If you want to catch the excellent play in town there are several other lodging options to check before wandering into this one.

It is across the street from Buckrail Lodge, but not very convenient to downtown. You're a few blocks from Snow King itself and the main lodge this motel belongs to. For the record this is a motel nothing cottage about it...

Room Tip: Get a clean one if you can.

We appreciate all of your comments regarding the stay with us at the Cottages at Snow King. The management and staff here are thankful to have the opportunity to accommodate you while staying in downtown Jackson. Staying at a very moderately priced property can give guest the chance to explore wonderful activities and great restaurants right in the historic town. I do want to apologize for the situation with the bedding. I assure you if it were brought to our attention we would have taken care of it in a timely manner. This kind of situation is far out of the ordinary for we pride ourselves in keeping a very welcoming, clean room as well as property. We thank you for staying with us and hope to have the chance to accommodate you on the next visit to Jackson. Travel safely and take care.
