Our ‘spur of the moment’ whirlwind trip to Yellowstone had specific goals …find value and quality in overnight stays at 9 places in 3100 miles. A few miles south of the major attractions in the Grand Tetons before you hit Jackson Hole is the Elk Inn right on Highway 89. The owners of the motel are doing a major upgrade...

We had an awesome stay at Elk Refuge Inn. Very clean and newly remodeled. Our room even had a little kitchenette. Beautiful view of the Elk Refuge. Great price for the area and only 3 min from Jackson Hole downtown! Wonderful staff! Hope to come back soon!

My GF and I recently stopped in during the off-season at Grand Tetons for a 2-night stay at the Elk Refuge Inn and were very satisfied. All of the rooms have been very recently updated and are clean, comfortable, and well-appointed. Nice big bathrooms, kitchens for light cooking, and a nice bedroom area. The service staff was SOOOO friendly. Jordan...

We stopped here as we thought Jackson would not have any spare accommodation but we only stayed one night in the end. Free breakfast, a bun and a coffee, joke. We moved into Jackson after the first night so we could have a drink and walk rather than drive.

You must not have stayed here. Perhaps you stayed somewhere else. We do not advertise or have a free breakfast. "Bun?" I have no idea what you are talking about. We do have really good locally roasted Great Northern coffee in the lobby at 7:00AM each morning and we all work extremely hard to provide a clean room and service...

Clean basic lodging similar to a motel 6. Advertised view of Elk Refuge is nothing to write home about this time of year - no elk - but the front desk clerk gave us a great tip on where to see moose. Having the kitchenette was a nice bonus. Traffic noise was noticeable.

Thank you for visiting us. Happy you saw a moose. Wildlife has been very abundant this spring. We've had 8 of our guests show us pictures of bears they have seen in the past week and 6 of them were grizzlies. All the best to you. Barry

An easy drive from downtown Jackson, this wonderful motel is operated by a most charming couple and their dog, Mr. Biggs (no pets allowed). A small complex with parking right to your door. Our unit had a small kitchenette w/toaster, refrig., micro., cupboards w/a few pots for the slow cooking 2 burner top unit. Very clean with a comfortable king...

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...

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.
