I stayed in a king room, newly renovated. Not only were the room amenities top notch, the tub had jets, and the room was quite spacious. I enjoyed being able to open the blinds and look out at the Elk Refuge. I would also go outside to the patio they offer for my room and sit on the bench. TV...

We're happy you enjoyed your stay. It was our pleasure to have you here. The views are amazing! Right from the Inn this winter we've seen moose, elk, deer, mountain sheep, a bald eagle and even a pack of wolves.

Pulled into their lot based on location very close to town but not right in the clostrophobic crowding of downtown. Decent room at decent rate. Liked that the window faced out to the wetlands. A big plus in my book.

We visited jackson in Oct to enjoy the foilage. All the rooms have nice views specially the sit area is very nice. Breakfast is not included. Housekeeping is good. Friendly staff. The rooms are supposed to have even better view in winter when the elks migrate.

We loved our visit to Elk Refuge Inn! The staff was extremely friendly and informative, offering us advice on trails and spots to visit in Grand Teton and where to buy bear spray. The suite was clean, very spacious and had a full kitchen. The location of the inn was conveniently situated between downtown Jackson and the southern entrance to...

We loved this place- simple, affordable, clean, and the best view of the Elk Refuge, even without the Elk at this time. It was a great view, very peaceful, especially from the second floor. We would love to come back sometime in late November to see the Elk at the Refuge from the balcony or through the glass doors &...

Good value for the price. We stayed there for 3 nights last weekend for our trip to Grand Teton and Yellowstone. It's less than 2 miles north of Jackson Hole. The hotel is situated along side of 191 looking out to the valley of National Elk Refuge. They advertise that each room has a view. It's true if you don't...

Great place to stay just outside of Jackson, not far from airport. Inexpensive, clean. The rooms are outdated but large, with small partial kitchenette, table and chairs, coffee machine, etc. Ask for the second floor which has beautiful views of the Elk Refuge and hills beyond. Be aware that the elk are only there in the winter. Staff was very...

The hotel rooms have been updated. There was plenty of space for our family of 3. The beds were very comfortable. The rooms were clean and well-kept. The location was perfect for us since it was just a few miles from the south entrance to the Tetons. The staff was very nice.
