We booked this hotel at the recommendation of a co-worker who must have stayed there a long time ago. Everything from the lobby to the towels was outdated and worn out. It was over $300 per night so I certainly expected more for that price. The cabins were dark and dingy with nasty, raveled carpet. The furniture was horrible, cheap and old, the beds sagged, the AC couldn't keep up with the hot days and neither could the mini fridge. I will say it was cleaned as well as possible, but housekeeping uses a strong air freshener to cover up the musty smell. The windows barely opened and the front door had only a flimsy old lock- made which me nervous at night as it wouldn't take much for someone to break in. The location was good and within walking distance of Jackson downtown- that was about the only good thing we found.…
So we rolled into town with no reservations (won’t do that again) … literally pulled into the first place we saw that had a vacancy sign (after exhausting the internet and finding horribly expensive rooms) .. so we ended up here. The front desk guy was super friendly and it’s right off the square so walking to anywhere is super easy … and that’s all the nice things I can say. We stayed in one of the motel rooms. I should have know it wasn’t going to be good when we were handed an actual key 🔑. The room was small. The microwave is from the 1980’s (it has a dial, no buttons). The lighting is horrible. The bed isn’t very comfortable and you only got 2 pillows. The bathroom was tiny. The shower was super small.. like you can barely turn around in it. Only one washcloth … thin small towels and I’m pretty sure there was mold in the shower. If they are ever full, good luck finding a place to park. Fortunately they weren’t full while we were there so we didn’t have an issue. So, this is definitely not a place I would highly recommend.…
Expectation management is key if you decide to stay at the Kudar. It might be the most affordable thing in town, but make sure to set low expectations. Let’s start with the pros … it’s right in the middle of town near everything. When available, the staff were friendly and helpful. When price shopping, it is affordable compared to other options, which based on availability during our stay, other lodging costs over $325 per night. If you decide to stay here, just set your expectations really, really low. The cons … the motel is old and tired. The value doesn’t equate to a good experience by normal standards, but by Jackson Hole standards, this might be a good deal. For the $180 spent for a king bed in the motel portion, the accommodations were basic at best. The bed was squeaky and worn out, the pillows, if you can call them that, were the cheapest I’ve ever had the pleasure of experiencing, and we only had one towel and hand towel in the room when we checked in. We had to go to the front desk to get more. I guess the room was clean … it was hard to tell. If you need A/C, good luck. Kudar may have had it’s heyday 40 years ago, but now it’s just a run-down motel. As a warning, if you’re expecting a great experience for the $180 cost, you might be disappointed. To clarify, we stayed in the motel portion, not the cabins. That might be a different experience. We’ve stayed in quaint little motels in small towns before, and had a great experience. Unfortunately, the Kudar didn’t deliver. There is potential there, but it seems they gave up years ago. I understand you aren’t coming to Jackson Hole for the lodging, and if you’re only staying a night or two, who knows, maybe you can survive the experience ……
The floor was so slanted we could hardly stand up in Cabin #13. There was NO hot water. I called the office and said I should get part of my $237 back and they refused. We stayed the night because it was getting late. The grounds were torn up and a muddy mess. What a disaster.
Old and musty. The shower was so disgusting we would not use it. There was hair all over the bathroom and puddles of water all over the room. Location was good but I could not recommend to stay here. Would not stay again
Consider yourself extremely fortunate if you are able to stay here. The hosts are amazing, the location is the absolute best, and the atmosphere is rustic and friendly. You are right in town; an oasis among the restaurants and trendy downtown, with willow trees, birds chirping, and a pretty view from your cabin window. As world travellers, we were thrilled with our stay. Everything exceeded our expectations, and we would give 6 stars.
Stayed in the cabins here. They were very simple, but practical, serviceable and met our needs. We were well pleased and the prices for the area were excellent. Location is central to see and visit the places that we wanted to go.
For the price and to stay in Jackson you can't beat it. Staff nice and they wore mask. Cabin big, with TV, internet and hot water. Place is right as you enter town before all the traffic. the grounds were OK with big grass area between the roads.
My husband and I were in Jackson a year ago and stayed at the Anvil hotel and noticed the nice grassy RV spots at the Kudar across the street. This year we booked an RV spot, thinking we would be on the nice grassy area up front. Wellllllll we were wrong. We pulled up to the spot they told us we had and just looked at each other in disbelief. We were in an alley next to a busy parking lot. While we do know Jackson is expensive, and the Kudar is in a prime location, $70 for an RV spot in the alley is a bit much. Would have been nice is they had told us we were not in the nice area. Save the $70 and take your RV elsewhere.
Loved the cabins. Decorated so nice. And loved having the porch out front of the cabin. Great location. Was nice and relaxing staying here. Very comfortable beds. Easy check in and check out. Loved our stay here.
