This is fairly basic accommodation at a far from basic price. It does have a nice view but is on a busy road. The keys, and that is both of them, didn't open the door, the mangeress had to virtually put her shoulder to it, to get it open. This meant we didn't dare leave the room at the same...

The only good thing to say about this motel is the view is amazing!!! So if your ok paying $250 for a view than this is your place! You truly only get a view! The beds were ok! The shower was miserable! The tv was hard to get a good channel. Located about 1 mile from the fun part of...

My husband and I stayed at the Elk Refuge Inn for 6 nights. One or two nights would have been fine, however 6 nights at this lodging was too long a stay. Everything was adequate, but definitely sub-optimal: the towels were threadbare and small, although clean; the kitchenette was tiny and the room so small that there was no place...

We stayed in this hotel before season (end of May), and the price was reasonable. The hotel was very clean, convenient. Having a small kitchen was very helpful. Nice view. Location is very convenient- outside of Jackson center, but very close, on the way to the Grand Teton national park. It also had nice big balcony.

The Elk Refuge Inn was an OK hotel. We really liked the location. It was outside of the town of Jackson Hole but not too far away Our room was on the second level so we had a balcony. There was also a small kitchenette. Because food is so expensive in Jackson Hole and the Park - it is a...

It is located on the north side of Jackson. Great for visiting the Grand Tetons. Very friendly staff. A nice view of the Elk Reserve. Very roomy rooms. We found it a great location for getting to town or the Grand Tetons

We had to pick up a reservation here when there was an issue with a cabin we were suppose to stay at inside Grand Teton. It was not an extremely large room - and there was not a lot of room for four people to move about with two queen beds, I understand that there are larger rooms available but...

We had what must have been the owner's apt. at one time. Full kitchen and laundry (which we didn't need yet as we just started our trip. Very clean (pull out couch a little lumpy but okay for one kid).

The Elk Refuge Inn was clean and the reception desk staff was very friendly, but a hot shower seems like a basic essential that a traveler should be able to expect. Unfortunately that wasn't the case. When I reported the cold shower I was told that I must have tried to shower during "peak time." I'd hate to have stayed...
