“Disappointing last night”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2013

Sad hotel in desperate need of renovation. Pricey for what it is. They put us in a large room with two floors and thought we were lucky, but the rooms were facing the main road and the attic room so hot you had to keep the window open - impossible to sleep with the noise. The morning staff manager was incredibly rude. Refused to open reception before 7 am despite me ringing the buzzer twice at 6.45 and 6.50 am, left me standing in the cold and when she finally did opened the door she neither looked at me or greeted me as if I had posed the biggest inconvenience! There must be nicer hotels in Jackson for 180 a night. It's also at the edge of town by a large intersection and no decent place to get breakfast in sight - had to roam around the centre of town for over 20 mins before I found a greasy cafe. Stay in the parks. Jackson is an over priced low end tourist trap.

Stayed September 2013, travelled with family

Stayed one night @ $190 for two twin beds. Room was very clean. Free coffee and fruits for breakfast. Quiet at night. Beds were comfortable and bedding clean. Does not have refrig or microwave oven in room. Location is in middle of Jackson.

We were checked in by Miles - quick & efficient. Originally we were allocated the "access" cabin which did not have a door between the living and bedroom area so we asked if they had one with a door (snoring problem) - which they had. They happily moved us to one with a door separating the areas. There was the usual supply of toiletries including make up remover towels. The bedroom had 2 comfortable queen/double beds and a reasonably comfortable double sofa bed in the living area - only good for 1 person though. 2 flat screen TVs and a small QUIET fridge. Fruit was available in reception area between 6-11 also coffee. Cocoa was available at reception in the evening. It was an easy walk to Village Square & 10 mile drive to Teton Village. The cabins are nice and generally clean - except for the carpet in our 2nd cabin (which we didn't notice until later)
The was animal urine stains which, we reported to an older man reception. We were told that the housekeeping staff should have reported it to reception to enable them to deal with the problem.
However, we concluded that the cabins with separating doors are maybe used for people with pets so that they can be shut out of the bedroom. That was the only down side. There was major roadworks going on at the time but only during the day & we didn't find this an inconvenience.

Comfortable & spacious! Plenty of room for a family of 4.....had the two beds on lower level and 1 in the loft......which the kids immediately loved & claimed! Nice and clean, definite bonus having kitchenette, but wish there was a continental breakfast......even if it was just muffins. The homemade cookies everyday was a nice treat. Conveniently located near stores and downtown area.

A friend stayed here 2 nights and then cancelled another reservation to return here after touring Yellowstone. I booked online and paid $374 for 2 nights and then was able to get the single night for $156. Llesson learned! Don't book in advance if it's not high season! This was a nice place with fresh cookies when you check in but no breakfast. Rooms were clean. There is street construction on the street this place faces which caused inconvenience submit was doable.

Room Tip: You will get z better price by booking the day of arrival. Ccorner room was quiet and spacious.

This place is outdated and small. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable, but the hotel needs major upgrading. The sound travels easily between the walls and ceilings, and the people above us sounded like a herd of buffalo everytime they walked around. It was just okay. It would equate to a $65-$75 hotel anywhere else.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the top floor

Our stay was August 2013. We stayed in a room with 2 beds on lower level and 1 bed in loft. The room was cozy, clean and the beds where nicely made up with the best sheets and pillows. Room had a nice area with sink, microwave and fridge. Staff at desk were very friendly. Great location in walking distance to the shops. Thanks again for a nice 3 day stay.
