Spent last night there, very busy place. Had a room beside the stairs and has to listen to kids running and yelling. Also seems that is also a good place to gather doe the smokers. Didn't quiet down until after midnight, which normally isn't an issue. Except when a body is travelling and needs some rest. We will not be... More

Thank you for your feedback. We are very sorry that your stay was not what you expected. We are a very popular destination, and it can sometimes be quite busy. We do try to keep hallway noise and activity to a minimum the best we can. We regret that other guests were not as considerate as we would hope during... More

This a great motel to stay at for a reasonable price in Jackson Hole. Jackson is a resort town so everything is pricey. But it is priced well for the area. It's clean, good mattresses, and close to all the action in town. You can walk to basically everything. The staff is always friendly and helpful. They definitely do everything... More

Check in Aug 11 was very fast and had a friendly desk clerk. Room nice size, quite, and very clean. Price was high but in line with all the other properties in Jackson. Room on first floor and was in and out very easy and parked next to room. Did not try the breakfast. Lots of restaurants near by and... More

Thank you for the review! We do understand that summer hotel rates in Jackson can be a sticker shock compared to the great rates we generally see during the off season. Nonetheless, we are so glad that you enjoyed yourself and had a great stay! Hopefully we can host you again soon! More

My family and I stayed at this hotel while I was in Jackson Hole to run the half marathon there in June. I would say it was the nicest hotel we have stayed at in a long time.

We live only 4 hours away, so we come to Jackson regularly. This was a holiday weekend, and we didn't plan enough ahead, so our options were limited and we ended up here. I can't say anything especially bad about the place - the room we had is basic and clean. The front desk people are friendly and helpful. It... More

We felt like we were back in the 60's when we checked into this beauty. Beds were terrible, we've never stayed in a place where we could clearly hear the conversation of the people above us (at 5:30am). OMG, the breakfast! The restaurant where they have free breakfast would be shut down almost everywhere. Filthy, food was cold, coffee was... More

First place the rollaway was actually there when we arrived. Staff extremely welcoming and helpful -excellent.

We were pleased with friendliness on check in, but soon realized that there wasn't enough parking for all the guests. They put red cones to block off at least 10 parking spots for a bus rather than drop the people and then park. Several customers moved the cones and parked. When my husband moved a cone so I could park,... More

Everything is very very expensive in Jackson. We stayed at this motel for $200 plus taxes on a Monday night in August 2014.

I booked the Painted Buffalo Inn because of both location and price and because we needed place for a total of 7 people, which they were able to provide.
