It has been years since I have stayed at an old motel, perhaps that is why I am disappointed in this property. When booking I knew that it was old, and what it physically looked like on the outside but I relied heavily on the reviews. The reviews were all positive (except one, should have relied on that one!) I took a chance and booked it. When traveling to Jackson, we have usually stayed at Teton Village or out at the Elk Refuge area, but decided to stay in town this time. All of the properties in town are old, and this one seemed like a good price compared to the rest. The office staff were wonderful, they were most helpful in suggestions as everyone has attested to. However, we were not told that there were muffins in the morning. We stayed two nights and each morning we got up early and got out of there, not needing to go into the office for anything. Only found the muffins the second morning after returning from breakfast and going into the office to check out. So what is bad about the place? Well at least for our room (upstairs #20), it appears that they have done a recent remodel. The problem is that I think a man designed the remodel. First the room is labeled "non smoking". It stunk heavily of smoke. We immediately went to the staff and inquired about the smell. They came up and couldn't smell anything (I'm sure they are just used to the smell), and said it was probably the construction next door. It was not, it smelled of smoke. Whether from years of being a smoking room, or from the smell of the last occupant, or the smell waifing from other rooms that were not labeled "non smoking". The bathroom is horrible. It has a pedestal, sink and no where to put anything. We had to spread our toiletries all over the floor and on top of the toilet seat. speaking of the toilet seat, it is an oblong seat and the toilet bowl is round. Did they get this on a clearance sale? The window is not obscured glass, a no no for a bathroom. Towels and toiletries were the only positives about the bathroom. The room itself had too much "stuff" in it, and again there was no where to put your own stuff. There was an "entertainment" type stand in place of a dresser. On it was a flat screen tv (nice), an alarm clock (across the room from the bed), a mini refrigerator, with a mini microwave on top of the refrigerator, again no where to set anything. There was a bistro type table with 2 chairs off to the side of it, which was full of their literature and a lamp. We had to use the chairs to put our things on. As it is an older place there is a severe lack of electrical outlets. We had to unplug their lamps to plug in our chargers, again placing them on the chairs. There was one nightstand next to the bed with a lamp on it that was plugged into an extension cord that ran to the other side of the bed. It would have been smarter to have the nightstand on the side of the bed closest to the plug so that the alarm clock could be plugged in next to the bed. We moved the alarm clock to the side of the bed where there was a plug but no nightstand and set it on one of our suitcases which was stood upright. The bed was hard, but it looked nice. On the upside, the parking spaces are very wide, no fear of someone hitting your car with their car door. Had our rooms not been paid for in advance, we would have left. Sorry Miller Park Lodge, we won't be back.
