“great find in jackson hole”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

we went leaf peeping through palisades, id on the way to Jackson hole. palisade area has the most beautiful leaves. we had passed pony express numerous times concerned over noise at the y intersection where it sits but we tried it. nice bed with bonus bunkbeds, large closet, fridge & microwave. the bathroom area was small but honestly, how much time do you spend in the bathroom. the hosts were awesome even showing us the room & asking if there was anything we needed & inviting us back. buddy, the office dog is very sweet & helps lessens puppy withdrawal. our concern about traffic noise was unfounded & short walk to sidewinders, a great local watering hole. oh yeah, we'll be back!

Room Tip: downstairs room can hear upstairs guests walking around.

If you check the prices for hotels in Jackson, you'll find that most of them are double the price. Pony Express is a little out of town, but still very convenient for getting into town and also for getting into the Grand Teton National Park. The owners are very helpful and friendly. The rooms and not first class, but they are clean. I would definitely stay here again.

We reserved this motel on internet in July for our Sept. Yellowstone trip. When we saw it was on a very busy intersection we were worried. It is very old, noisy, smelly and the bathroom flooring was
not level. The second night I ask for a lighted candle so we would not smell whatever it was.

The bright-side was a full kitchen and a nice outside pool. Pricing was reasonable 140.00 with comfy king bed.

Room Tip: Do not get room 20! Hope the other rooms are fresh smelling and the flooring is level. The manager...

When I was looking for lodging in Jackson, I was worried because all the downtown hotels cost at least $300.00 a night. I was pleased to find the Pony Express at half that price. When checking in the gracious lady at the front desk (so sorry, I've forgotten your name) offered to make dinner reservations. I took her up on her offer, since we did want to eat a specific place, and the town seemed crowded. She led me to our room, deemed a "family" room, which had a bunk bed set and what was described as a double bed, but I think it was a queen. We loved our room, and the location was ideal for getting on the road east the next day. Don't let the downtown prices scare you, this place is a wonderful place to stay, and it only takes a couple of minutes to drive back downtown!

We stayed here for two nights and were not disappointed. The location is just a couple minutes down the road from downtown Jackson, but there are also a number of restaurants and stores even closer. We took a rafting trip and the office where we met up for the trip was not far at all from the hotel either. The grocery store across the street is within walking distance. The staff at checkin and checkout were friendly and made us feel welcome. The exterior of the property is well-maintained and the room appeared to be clean, but the bed was not very comfortable and overall I thought that maybe the room could stand to be spruced up just a bit. I would recommend a second-floor room because we were on the ground floor and I was awoken on both nights by the footsteps of the folks staying above us. Overall, at the price we paid, I'm not sure that I would call it a good value, but notwithstanding the price I would stay here again.

Enjoyed a three day stay at Pony Express. The hospitality and room were excellent. A clean, pleasant experience for a fair value. Will definitely consider for future trips.
The location is adjacent to numerous attractions and conveniently located off the highway. The owners were helpful and offered suggestions for local businesses.

When our plan for a week in Estes Park, CO/RMNP had to be changed at the last minute, we were delighted to have Pony Express Motel recommended as a good place to stay. We were not disappointed with our 5-night stay as we explored Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. Our queen unit had a full kitchen with a dishwasher. When we arrived we were made to feel welcome and escorted to our room. It was on the second level and faced the road. There was a minimum of traffic noise although the intersection is a busy one. There is plenty of space in the cupboards for your groceries and several hooks to hang your clothes on with a bench beneath for putting packs, purses, etc. on. The vanity in the bathroom had storage space for makeup bags and other essentials. There was only a small round table with a couple of hotel stye chairs, but there was a nice breakfast bar with 3 stools for eating. There are plenty of outlets to recharge all of your electronic devices. Although the space was on the small side, I found plenty of space where I could tuck things away, so they weren't underfoot. There is a large grocery store across the road for stocking up on supplies.
