I knew getting a room in Jackson for under $200 a night was a crap shoot but this place was awful. I will say the room was clean but we had to unclog the sink garbage disposal of paper and vegetable peelings. the place looked like it was decorated from a garage sale. luckily there were two couches as the...

Picked the wrong time to stay there since Elk are no on the refuge at that time. But the Motel was clean and well stocked. Network and TV were fine and the location was pretty nice although there was some road noise. The staff was awesome and helped me a lot. Quite expensive though.

We stayed here two nights and were very pleased with the accomodations. We were on the second floor with balcony seating with views of the refuge. The kitchenette is an added bonus so we could have made light meals if we had wanted. Microwave, refrig, coffee maker and 2 burner stove top. Beds were comfortable. We will stay here again... More

The Elk Refuge Inn is directly across the street from the huge expanse that is the Elk Refuge. From the street, the inn looks like the old motel that it is. On the inside, our room was quiet, clean, and well-appointed, with a better than average price for the area. The cleaning staff was ok, but could have done a... More

As Jackson Hole is very expensive, this hotel offers good value for money. The room was very clean and had everything it needed: kitchenette, nice bathroom, large room... The staff at the check-in desk was very friendly. They recommended us some great places to eat. I also guess that this location is more quiet than the hotels closer to town.... More

You can't beat the location - 5 minutes outside of Jackson WY, 10 minutes to Grand Teton National Park. The view from the rooms of the Elk Refuge and the sunrises are amazing. However, the room are quite dated with shag carpeting and college dorm furniture. On the other hand, our room did have a kitchenette, the beds are comfortable,... More

Good location in the National Elk Refuge a few miles away from the downtown Jackson Hole congestion. Presumably fabulous views from the sliding door/balcony of the large elk herds that winter here. This is an older property but I don't ask for much beyond a clean and quiet room, decent bed and good wi fi and it delivered. Note: If... More

Stayed here two nights and was pleased overall. A lot more quiet than expected since it was right on the road. Very comfortable beds! Not the Ritz but a very comfortable and affordable stay! The room was large with frig and microwave as well as a table and four chairs.

We slept here one night on our way to Yellowstone. The Motel is close to Jackson Hole Restaurants and Shops. Great view of the Elk Refuge across the road. Clean room with Kitchenette. Comfortable beds. Parking in front of the room.
