“Much better than the "big ones..."”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

Owners are friendly, attentive and accommodating.

Small motel, convenient location, good value.

Much better than "the big ones..."

Even sat up on the 2nd floor, with our feet up on the railing and had a glass of wine. (The wine store across the street, right next to the Albertson's has a pretty good selection of wine and beer.) Also, Cutty's, across the street has a pretty good burger and cheesesteak - beef or chicken - with a patio.

I think it's much better to support smaller, more local joints like this.

Keep in mind, however, I think it's a bit to far from "downtown" (and it wouldn't be a fun walk - it's on a busy street).

We enjoyed our stay very much. And, highly recommend staying here.

Pony Express Motel is very good place to stay in Jackson. It's clean and the bed was comfortable. My two priorities. The owners were really friendly and helpful. The pool looked nice but we didn't use it. We had a king bed with a kitchen. The room was small but it was fine for us. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at the Pony Express Motel June 28-July 5th 2013. The pony express is cute well maintained and the staff was very friendly. A special shout out to Clint the owner he was very friendly and helpful. He helped by boyfriend unload our Motorcycle and reload it when we were leaving even calling in a friend of his to help us. Thank You Clint!!

Our room was located in the middle of the motel on the bottom floor easy access to our bike and vehicle. Our room was very clean and cleaned very well daily, a full kitchen with all the pots pans dishes etc. The bathroom was tiny but we made do, nice bathroom amenities also. Our room was quiet we were never disturbed by the rooms next door so that is a plus. The pool was a nice touch and we hung out a couple days and enjoyed it. There is even a grill by the pool and we bought steaks one night and grilled out very nice to be able to do that. They do have laundry which is located in the basement (not scary) :) which was a huge plus. There is a pop,snack machine and an ice machine also. The Pony Express is located right next to the Phillips 66 gas station if that helps to find it just turn into the gas station and you will see the driveway. The location is a little away from the main town but you could walk to a few things easily and we did, but if your going into the town you would want to drive or take the bus.
It isn't far from the Gran Tetons and beautiful Jenny Lake we really enjoyed this area and can't wait to return just breathtaking!! Make sure you go to the Bunnery for breakfast but go early cause the line goes down the sidewalk! :)
We really enjoyed this gem of a Motel and wouldn't hesitate in recommending it.

Kristi welcomed us with a smile and information on local events, not just tourist places.
She walked us to the room to make sure it was cleaned. The room with a
full kitchen was perfect. The bath area was updated with the sink separate from bathroom.
The place was spotless and room great. The one draw back was the street noise which we overcame by opening the back windows and running the fan. The bed was comfortable and inviting after a long day of hiking.
The location was a mile out of town, which was perfect. Town was crowded and hard to get around in. We had nearby grocery, liquor and gas station
Going left could be a challenge, ask Clint and he gives you the ideal way to go- along the frontage road to the light!
I would recommend this to all ages, we never heard our neighbors. When we get back to Jackson we certainly wil stay here again.

Very friendly and accommodating owners and staff. Jordon was especially hospitable. We stayed in the condo unit and it was perfect. Hotel is very good for what it is. Remember, you are not staying in the city, this is a rustic setting with good serviceable accommodations. The pool is clean as well. The entire motel faces the road, as do all the motels on this strip. We could not hear any street noise. The bedrooms are in the back.The only thing to be aware of is that the entrance to the hotel is through a Phillips 66 gas station. It is easy to miss so be aware.

I needed a place to stay for one night and found the Pony Express on the TripAdvisor site. Small motel that was very convenient. It's a short drive from the town center, but easy to get to town. It's on a very busy corner which can be challenging. My room had a full kitchen with a dishwasher so they clearly market toward extended stay guests. Room was clean and comfy.

Everything about this place is average, but the price. The good news is that the place is clean-- but well scrubbed also describes the décor. It is a hike to central Jackson. If this review is less than enthusiastic, so was the experience. It is just a place to stay on the way to somewhere else.
