“Can't beat the location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2013

Two blocks from the town square, this is a perfect choice for someone who just wants simple accommodation and easy access. My room was clean, large comfortable and I had a great view over the roof of the local Thai restaurant and down Pearl St. to the mountain pass. It was great at sunset! Dinah is the proprietress and she is terrific! Friendly, knowledgeable and helpful, like having a local aunt. Parking lot is easy in and out. I stayed 4 nights in July. Would definitely recommend!

Room Tip: Upstairs towards the Pearl street side will get you a great view.

Excellent proposition. The special deal of $ 149 is very well worth it. Motel is clean and comfortable and the location couldn't be better. Other reviewers have rightly said there's no mint on your pillow when the turn-down service appears ( it doesn't ), so its no surprise to see that the card swipe room key states "room service - call Dominos" !

Good accomodation and great economics, highly recommended....and Dinah gave us a great breakfast recommendation - Bubbas !! Have the Mexican scramble.

I booked at the Rawhide Motel in Jackson because of reviews on TripAdvisor. The reviews are very accurate. The owner is very friendly and helpful, the rooms are older but clean. There appeared to be enough parking (which is not always the case with Jackson motels) and the location can't be beat. This motel is easy walking distance to downtown. Its a tad expensive compared to what I'll usually pay for a room, but Jackson is a pricey place and this motel is competitively priced and offers the advantages listed above. I'd definitely stay here again the next time I come to Jackson.

We were in Jackson Hole on vacation and found a room at the Rawhide. The motel is older but clean and well kept. The proprietor Dinah was friendly and very helpful providing information on the local scene. The hotel was quiet and we had a good night's rest. We would not hesitate to stay at the Rawhide on any return trips. Regards from Maryland.

The Rawhide Motel is an older motel, very conveniently located, and not as expensive as many of the motels in the area. Not sure if the lady at the desk was the owner, or not, but she seemed to live in quarters behind the check in desk. Very friendly and helpful, both on the phone when I made the reservation, and in person! The hotel is a little dated; nice western furniture in log theme; overall clean but not spotless; found popcorn under the stand by the bed (not ours!!). But the carpet felt clean on my feet, and the bathroom and bedding were very clean! There is no microwave in the room, but you can use the one in the check in area. Has a fridge and flatscreen TV. Bed/pillows very comfortable ; nice linen, clean! Towels were thin and bathroom dated; sink outside bathroom, which is a plus! Had fridge and coffee pot in room, ice easily accessible. There is no breakfast included, but many places close by. Overall, a nice place to stay. We were on 2nd floor, where there is a balcony across the front with chairs outside each room. Pleasant to sit out there in the evening until the mosquitos come out!! We don't spend much time in hotel rooms, mainly to shower and sleep, and unwind an hour or so before bed. This met our needs nicely...and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if we were in the area.

Let's start by dispensing with the hyperbolae. Yes I gave the Rawhide 5 Stars. Is it the Four Seasons? No. Were there mints on the pillows when we checked in? No. Will my family continue to return and stay at the Rawhide whenever we visit Jackson? Absolutely.
There are no frills about the Rawhide so if that is what you are looking for than I'd suggest looking elsewhere and be prepared to pay for it. If you are visting Jackson and the Parks then a place to lay your head should be your biggest concern as you'll be out having adventures most of your visit. For the price the Rawhide is a steal.
As the other reviews have stated, the rooms are big, the motel is very close to downtown, and Dinah, the manager is friendly and welcoming.
What I liked most about the Rawhide was the variety of clientele who were staying there. There were hikers like my wife and me, families visiting the park, older folks on a tour of the west, Harley riders, and everything in between. Everyone we met was so nice and had a story to tell. One night there was an older gentleman and his wife sitting outside and he was making little figurines out of wire coat hangers and giving them to people who passed by. Dinah would come out of the office every night and speak to the guests who were sitting out in front of their room. It really felt like home.
I felt safe there and I felt like my car was safe in the parking lot. Jackson really gets quiet after sunset.
Many guests did like to sit out in front of their room and enjoy a cigarette and maybe a beer in the evening. If this is a turn off to you then either be prepared or look elsewhere, but we stayed in two different rooms (two nights at the beginning of our trip and 3 nights at the end) and each room was very clean and we never smelled smoke.
For our last night, we wanted to see the sunset over the Tetons but did not want to drive all the way back up to the park. Dinah suggest a dirt road on the far side of the Elk Refuge just minutes from town and it was ideal. It's like she shared a secret spot with us that we will go to every time we return.
We booked in January and got a great price and when we were forced to come down off of the Grand Teton one day early due to weather, Dinah was able to book us a room with no issues.
I highly recommend the Rawhide if you are looking for a comfortable, convenient, friendly place to stay in Jackson at a very affordable rate. We will be back for sure.

Room Tip: Usually I like to stay on the first floor as close to my car as possible, but the second floor rooms...

We were staying two nights in Jackson so I was looking for location and price. We had a lot planned so just needed a place to sleep and be able to walk where we needed to go. When I called to book the room I noticed the best price was on the basement rooms. Never heard of a basement room at a motel but took a chance due to the price. It is exactly like staying at your aunt's house in the basement. The room was large and clean. The bathroom was not large but was just fine. It worked out great for us because it was quiet and darker then most motel rooms. If you are looking for a room with a view or don't like stairs, this is not for you. The motel does not have food but is located near lots of places to eat. The manager was very nice and made some good suggestions for places to eat or things to do.
