Flying Saddle Resort

Reviewed 1 October 2013

this is the second time we have stayed at flying saddle resort. it is clean and has a decent restraunt. The pool and hot tub are very nice . Liqour store attached. whats not to like . good food. good accomodations indoor pool and hot tub. Decent price. The drive into jackson is so beautiful or you can go the back way and see the eagles nests on the light poles by the lake. Beats a 200 dollar super 8 any day. We will stay here again.

Room Tip: handicapp rooms are on the lower level. no elevator. they do have a laundry and fitness room too.

The Flying Saddle's web site really need a facelift as it doesn't do justice to the property or the rooms. There isn't enough information about the room or what facilities they have.

Check-in was easy and pleasant and we were given a map of the site and the location of our room. We had a ground floor river view room which was roomy (apart from the bathroom), plenty of draw space but only a few hangers in the closet. There is a small microwave and a smallish fridge which were useful to have. Beds were reasonably comfortable and the pillows were not bad either both of which are dependent on personal preference.

There is a small balcony with a couple of chairs and a table which would have been nice to use if the weather had been more pleasant. The first time we looked at the view an osprey could be seen across the river.

We tried the breakfast which at $9 was pretty good. Not a huge selection of items but what was there were much better quality compared to the free offerings at some hotel chains. Thee coffee was pretty good too. Pancakes were also rather nice.

The food in the Steakhouse was good too. We had a salmon special ($24) and a Jack Daniels New York special ($27) which we felt were good value (compared to what we would have paid for something similar at home). They also had on draft Mirror Pond beer, one of our favourites, which was a bonus. We had to wait for a table which is fine but there are several tables for 6 and the rest were all for 4 people so if there were two people a table was wasted. Some smaller 2 seat tables would make sense. The main issue was the service once we had a table. We ordered our drinks and meals and then waited an age for the drinks to arrive. The salad then arrived followed shortly after by the main course. We weren't offered bread/rolls like all the other tables were. Then before we had finished our mains we were given the check! A minute later we were asked if we had signed/paid for the meal. Obviously we weren't expected to have a desert. Obviously we weren't expected to have another drink or coffee either. The restaurant wasn't about to close and they weren't waiting for the table. Appalling service was rewarded with a zero tip. Did enjoy the food and beer though.

The second night we ate it the bar which has the same menu. Had the skewered prawns and the ribs. Both were really good as was the service.

Overall we were pleased with our stay and the price is much better than if we had stayed in Jackson.

We are staying in cabin 202. It is a log cabin that is really quaint. The river is right behind us with chairs to view any wildlife that ought be there. They have a wine store on sight which is really handy to get a chilled bottle of wine. I love this place, will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The cabins are a little more money but definitely worth it.

Just 25 miles south of Jackson and much less expensive than Jackson accommodations, Flying Saddle Inn is a perfect location for visiting the incredible Tetons and surrounds. Vistas from upper rooms are breath-taking - Snake River and Rockies! Clean, reasonably priced, good restaurant and bar. Indoor pool, spa, exercise room, beer & wine store, etc., etc. We've stayed there several times! Will do so again!

Room Tip: Upper rooms with view of river!

Flying Saddle Resort had a beautiful lobby with a liquor store and gift store available. The bar, restaurant, pool, and room were lovely. The liquor store had a drive-in window and a great selection of wines. There were beautiful mountains surrounding the hotel. It was peaceful and comfortable.

The grounds are beautiful. The room is big and spacious. The views around the resort are outstanding. The restaurant is overpriced and the food is not that good. We were in the older section of the resort. It was clean and comfortable and very spacious. The only other negative was the distance to and from the resort to get to Jackson. However, the drive was absolutely gorgeous. You follow a river in almost the whole way and you are in a canyon. We saw several Eagle nests too. There was a lovely place across the street that we ate breakfast at one morning. But $45 for a simple egg and toast breakfast is a bit much.

Excellent restaurant for evening meals and a peaceful location surrounded by beautiful scenery, it was close enough to Grand Teton park. Linen was tired, but everything seemed clean. Staff were friendly, we had to pay for breakfast but the internet was free.
