Pony Express Motel
Ranked #18 of 40 Hotels in Jackson
Reviewed 16 August 2013

My wife and I stayed at the Pony Express Motel for three nights in August, 2013. It served as a good base for exploring the Jackson Hole area and though it was a bit more expensive than we might have liked, it was a good value compared to similar hotels in Jackson.

It is located on the southern edge of the central area of Jackson, at the junction of the road to the Teton Village ski area and to Teton National Park. For us this was a good location because it made it quick and easy to reach those areas for hiking. Although it might be fun to be closer to the old historic district, we were just a short drive to it. The Pony Express is just across the road from a new shopping center with a large supermarket, a very handy place for supplies.

The Pony Express was originally built in the classic two-story motel style, with rooms accessed by a common walkway along the front of the building. The rooms have been totally redone, though, so that inside they have been upgraded into attractively decorated and very comfortable accommodations complete with full kitchen. Our room (#20) was on the second floor and was large with a comfortable king bed (but hard pillows), a small table with chairs at the window, a reading chair, a large five-drawer dresser. The kitchen had a bar counter across one side with stools. Although we didn’t cook full meals we liked being able to make our own breakfasts and keep supplies for picnic lunches. The bathroom was rather small but adequate, with a tub/shower combo and a separate vanity area that had just a small amount of counter space. Wifi is included and worked well.

There were a few quirks that probably were the result of retrofitting an older structure – there was room for only one night stand, there was no closet and only pegs for hanging clothes (though the 5-drawer dresser provided adequate storage for folded items), and the attractive kitchen tile raised the floor level to the point of requiring care not to stub a toe at night. The large windows across the front provided plenty of light but also gave people walking by outside visual access to the room unless the shades were closed. These were minor problems, however.

The staff was uniformly friendly, helpful and welcoming. They seemed to really care about their facility and making our stay comfortable.

Recently had the opportunity to stay at this location. Prepaid for one night and arrived late for check in. The reserved room was already given to another guest and we were given another room number 7 near the vending machines and the stairs leading to the second floor. The room was clean but old and outdated. The 'convenient' kitchen was of no value because we only stayed two nights. The dishes and utensils were questionable. Getting into the parking lot was interesting. Driving in from the south required turning left into the gas station next to the motel and driving through their property. Driving in from the north requires going slow and giving the vehicle behind you a lot of notice that you are turning right into the motels parking lot. Several times the vehicle behind me thought I was just turning onto the next highway. Expensive for the accommodations but they have you for what seems like the least expensive property. Would not stay there again.

Room Tip: Register early and ask not to be placed near the vending machine. The second floor looks like a good...

Very clean and functional with lovely personal touches. There is a small heated pool and garden area that is greatly appreciated after a walk in the national park. Good location; near a huge supermarket, breakfast bar and on the right side of town for the national park. If you are hiring a car through Alamo or National the pick up point is close by. Alamo or National will bring you from Jackson Airport on a bus to pick up your car, very handy. Kristie and her husband have been very welcoming and have given great recommendations. There is also a laundry on site. We have loved our stay.

Stayed here over night, but would have been comfortable for a week. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and nicely decorated. Good location, nice pool and good laundry facilities. Cute little yard area with picnic tables and swing. Very close to stores and resturants.

When visiting Jackson during the peak summer season, I expected to pay well over $200 a night, but we found the Pony Express and lucked out to get a room for two nights in a row about 6 weeks before we traveled! It was clean, quiet and had everything we needed. We BBQued on their grills and swam in the pool while visiting the sights around Jackson. It was exactly what we expected except the price! We were pleasantly surprised by that!

From the airport, you have to drive through the town of Jackson to get to the Pony Express, It's located at the intersection where you turn off to go to Teton Village. This intersection also has an Albertson grocery store, so is convenient if you plan to stay several days and buy your own food. The rooms come with a mini fridge and a microwave. The rooms are clean and while there is no hairdryer in the room, they will loan you one. The bed and bedding are very nice. It's definitely a "motel" dated from the 60s, but it's a good location for both the town of Jackson and the Teton Village area. It's a good value if you can't afford a nice hotel in Teton Village.
