We have stayed at the Parkway Inn many times in the past several years (most recently early June 2007), and have always enjoyed our time there. Reviews that characterize this inn as a "b&b" do no service to potential guests. In actuality, the Parkway Inn is a very nice, comfortable, upscale motel in the town center, with some amenities borrowed from the b&b world (duvets, lovely fabrics and paintings, comfortable chairs in rooms, treats in the lobby/lounge area). The pool and hot tub are an added bonus, as are the views through trees to the park across the street and to the mountains from some rooms.
Be forewarned: Guests seem to all want breakfast at the same time. The tiny breakfast room (about 5 tables placed too close together plus 2 more in the lobby/lounge area) can get unbearably crowded when the Inn is full. The breakfast is buffet style, with fresh fruit, hard-boiled eggs, baked goods, and good coffee / tea / juices. The buffet line can be very frustrating, with people forced to squeeze around tables & each other while trying to reach for an extra napkin or spoon.
Our advice is to skip breakfast at the Inn, and walk two pleasant blocks into the center of Jackson for a much more relaxing experience at the many good breakfast restaurants in town. One additional caveat: there is a personal computer in the lobby, but it is basically useless for most travelers' purposes. Since there are no application programs (other than the Mozilla browser), it is impossible to download and print important email attachments. The nearest internet cafe does not open until 10:00 a.m., long after most guests need to be on their way.
And finally, if you expect the Parkway Inn to be a very pleasant, upscale motel, and not a highly personalized b&b, you won't be disappointed.
