Nice clean room. Too bad the AC doesn't work better

Historical Traveler Reviews Elk Country Inn Jackson
Simple it is to close to all the downtown noise and bars. Got no sleep.
Great place to stay
We stayed 10 nights at the Elk Country Inn in March 2006 and would recommend it unreservedly. We got an excellent deal - less than $70 a night and found the staff there all very helpful. We stayed in the hotel style rooms in a totally non-smoking block - it's so great not to have to smell smoke in the corridors. The room was large and bright with 2 queens, a fridge, coffeemaker and microwave and was kept very clean. Fresh fruit is available every morning at reception - what a nice change from doughnuts! There are also regular free shuttles to Teton Village morning and evening which saves the drive particularly when it's snowing hard. The Inn is very well situated both for the centre of town and for the shopping on the southern outskirts which is just a short drive away.
Nice little place
We stayed at this hotel recently while in Jackson to attend a wedding. Our room was fairly large with two queen beds, a table and two chairs, a small fridge and microwave. The room was clean and everything was in working order. The location is great as you can walk everywhere but it is not directly in the hustle and bustle of downtown. We did not use the hottub but other family members loved it! The office offers coffee and fruit in the morning and the staff are friendly and helpful. I would definately stay at this hotel again.
Good value for Jackson
It is a pretty good hotel, really. We had nothing to complain about. For what you get, it's a bit expensive, but from what I gather everything in Jackson is hyperinflated.
Would probably stay here again.
We stayed in one of their hotel rooms with 2 queen beds. The room was clean, with a microwave, small refridgerator, and sink. The front desk workers were very helpful, giving us suggestions on where to eat. They have a computer set up in the front lobby set up for the internet if you want to surf free. Overall, we were very pleased with our stay.
Convenient and clean cabin
We stayed at the Elk Country Inn in one of their cabins. We found it very clean and convenient. We stayed 3 nights in August with a 4-year old and an 8-year old. We made breakfast 2 mornings in the kitchenette and ate on the porch picnic table. The hanging pot of flowers and the view of the hotel "park-ette" made it a pleasant spot. My term "park-ette" refers to a grassy area where guests can picnic, play with their dogs, watch their kids on the playground equipment, etc.... I don't think alll units face this area. (I think dogs are allowed in only some motel units and not in the cabins.) We did have to look past our own car to view this area but it was still nice even with the strip of parking lot around it. The cabins are not in the historic downtown area but it is an easy walk down Pearl Street to the "square" area and we walked to dinner or ice cream every evening. The staff was helpful with restaurant suggestions and when our child locked us out during breakfast. It was nice having two rooms each with their own TV... the kids can watch Cartoon Network while the adults can watch something else. (Note: the wall dividing the two rooms is not all the way up to the triangular peak... the inner wall is the same height as the outer side walls so it provided some privacy but not as sound-proof as a complete wall would have been.) Each room is not large but adequate for a family of 4 and their luggage. Seemed like a good value in Jackson.
Very nice place to stay
We stayed here for 4 nights while touring Jackson and the Tetons. We had a room with 3 queen beds (one was in a loft area). Room included a fridge, counter/sink area, microwave, and toaster. The kids (13/16) loved the loft. The folks who run the hotel were very pleasant both on the phone and in person. Free internet access in the lobby was a nice surprise. Close to everything but not right in the middle of the bustle (a good thing). Highly recommended for families!
Really great for a family of 4
I spent a good deal of time researching where to stay in Jackson and choose the Elk Country Inn Cabins. We stayed in the two room "cabin" here for a total of four nights, the first and last part of our trip with 5 nights in Yellowstone in between. The rooms were very clean and nicely appointed. There was a separate living room with sofa bed and two double beds in the bedroom. Two televisions, great when you have two children. The kids liked sleeping in the sofabed and watching their own television. We paid about $112 a night, still the off season rate and a very good value. My seven year old loved the large hot tub. We always had the 8 person capacity to ourselves. Within walking distance to a vareity of restraunts includuing Bubba's, a lot of food for the money and kid friendly. Staff friendly and helpful. Free internet access in the small lobby. Would definatly stay here again.
Great place to stay!
We had a great experience at this hotel. The room was large, clean and the staff is very friendly. We had one minor problem with a TV being too loud and the staff addressed that immediately. The location and rates are very good. I would highly recommed this hotel.
Cozy cabin/Friendly Service/Good value!
We stayed in one of the log cabins at the Elk Country Inn right before Christmas. Service was friendly & courteous and room rates were reasonable -- especially given the fact that we were within walking distance of the down town shops. Jackson has become a pricey little town, but the countryside and ambiance is worth it!

Up and out for 7.30 to Teton National Park for a quick 6 mile walk before whitewater rafting in the afternoon. The walk was around Jenny Lake and up to an observation area creatively called 'Inspiration Point'. Many photographs were taken and the vista from Inspiration Point was indeed a very inspiring view. A quick walk back down to the hidden falls, which are aptly named as they are a splendid sight to behold but you cannot ...
... were generously given Senator Kohl’s house to stay in. Wow! Stunning!! We laughed when Jodi showed us how to use the television. With the wrap-around porch and vistas to enjoy there would be no time for television. In the morning we took a horse ride up into the hills to overlook the ranch and the Tetons. The wind blowing, and me fearing the stark cliff drop. It was nothing to the kids who live at the ranch, though, sitting on the edge and throwing bright red rocks over ...
... heading up to a falls on the other side of Jenny Lake. The destination is Hidden Falls. We hiked on a trail to the falls but were distracted by the mountain and valley views and, apparently, went past the falls; upward to "inspiration point" and beyond until the snow was too thick and deep to go further. We found a nice spot next to a falls to have lunch and then headed back down the mountain stopping at hidden falls which was ...
... t see them. So we concluded we would drive through the town of Old Faithful and on to Jackson and we would see what we would see. And we did. No moose, no bears, no wolfs. Lots of elk and buffalo.
On to Old Faithful. The visitor center is now a virtual exploritorium for kids. Great, but, I already knew a lot about the geological wonder of Yellowstone. Of ...
We're here in Jackson Hole, and today headed into Grand Teton National Park which is truly stunning. The mountains and lakes are beautiful. On the way back we came across a large herd of buffalo, some of them on the road. Dinner tonight in the 76 year old Million Dollar Bar, with a local beer and (shhh) a Buffalo Burger! Off on an 8-hr wildlife discovery day tomorrow, starting at 0630! Hope to see bears, elk and the large but elusive ...
