Terrible Service
Upon arrival there was no one to check us in. We paid $300 a night and stayed for a week. We were early, noon, and the sign said someone will be back at two. We were very tired from travel, so called (every time I called I got an answering machine) and asked if we could check in early. No return call, and we came back at 2 and still no one was there. Because of covid, no room service, which is fine, so I called to get extra coffee, no return call, no coffee. I called for more towels, no return call no towels. Internet stopped working after day 2, called, no return call, no internet the rest of the stay. Our stay was our 30 anniversary and we climed teton, so training and the hike made for daily exhaustion and showers, coming back to no service made this special vacation, no special at all. At home now, and I never once received a call back about any of the messages I left, and 3 times I walked to the office for it to be empty.

A nice home away from home!
Beautiful view! So comfy and family friendly! Kitchenette had all the supplies we needed for a family of four! There was a goodie basket waiting for us! Kids had the fold out couch in the living area and parents had privacy in the master.

Great value for the price. It’s located only 1 mile outside of “town”. It’s a lot less expensive than the hotels in town. Also restaurants and shopping are easy to get to. It was clean, quiet and comfortable. Perfect for a couple of nights.

Beautiful view from room.
This was a great place. The view from the picture window was wonderful. The bed was comfortable and the room was very clean. Staff was great.

Good but bed was awful especially for the price
Sandra, us1 night family trip
Very good 8.0
We enjoyed our stay here. Even though it is an older motel, the rooms are spacious. Bathroom is very small and air conditioner wasn't working well. Kitchen area was nice and well-supplied. Great location!

Nice hotel with a nice view
Very nice place! We enjoyed our stay right across from the elk refuge. They didn’t come around on our side when we were here but I imagine it would be pretty cool when they do. Room was clean and no problems at all.

This was a fabulous suite with a wonderful view; outstanding value for the price. The suite aspect allowed a great deal of room for both of us; I wish we could have stayed longer to make use of the kitchenette. The only issue (small) was figuring out how to work the heater/AC unit

Balloons and Popovers???
The good: It was spacious and conveniently located. The view was decent but over hyped and negated by the highway noise. Now the bad: It wasn't the best price, but it's Jackson where everything is over priced to begin with. The place smelled a bit, but not unlike a typical old motel. The kitchenette wasn't the greatest either - a stove burner knob was broken off. We also found leftover half eaten popovers in the fridge (with a dirty knife) that looked like they had been there awhile. Of itself this isn't too big of a deal other than it makes you wonder how thorough of a cleaning job they are REALLY doing. On top of that, there were 2 helium birthday balloons on the high ceiling. Again, not a big deal but it makes you wonder about the cleaning and maintenance checks. Glad we only stayed one night.
