    The rooms were clean, but not updated. The food was good, but not great. BUT, the views from the back of the lodge were fantastic, so we'd stay there again for those alone and for its convenience.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Jackson Lake Lodge Grand Teton National Park

    We had a great stay


    We had a great time at the Jackson Lake Lodge in early September, 2004. After many (many) calls, we finally secured a "view" room in the main lodge the day before we arrived. Well worth the effort. Our room was comfortable and well-appointed. Took a look at a view cottage, it looks great too.

    Unlike other reviews, we found the staff warm and courteous. Dinner in the Mural Room on two different nights was very good and the presentation was superior.

    The views (and the moose viewing) make this lodge. Great hiking and many activities for those inclined. Not inexpensive, but a good value. Book early and treat yourself to a view room or view cottage. If you can't get a room with a view, the main lodge lobby and decks have marvelous views and many places to hang out. We would recommend this lodge to anyone.

    What a wonderful place!


    My wife and I and our two kids (9 and 11) stayed at Jackson Lake Lodge while visiting the Grand Teton National Park and absolutely loved it. We stayed in what was called a "non-view"cabin but being in the last row of the cabins on one side of the complex, we had a very pleasant view of a field teeming with small animals and birds. The room was more than adequate in size and appointments. The pool was very nice. The dining opportunities were good, although somewhat limited and, I felt, expensive. However, the highlight of this Lodge is the beautiful lobby area featuring floor to ceiling windows framing the Grand Tetons. We never tired of looking at them or going out to the deck in the back with dozens of others to watch for animals at sunrise and sundown. Grand Teton was, for our taste, a more enjoyable, if less interesting, visit than our subsequent Yellowstone visit and this hotel was so great that we stopped back again for breakfast on our way from Yellowstone to the airport at Jackson Hole, just to make one last visit. We plan to go back someday.

    Great value and location!


    We stayed at the Jackson Lake Cottages over the 4th of July weekend. The first night we were in a Patio room with no view, which actually had a totally private view of a nice wooded area. We were able to see sunrise from our balcony, and it was just a quick walk or a 30-second drive to the lodge to watch the mountains turn pink at sunrise! The room was obviously recently remodeled and very nice. We've stayed in the cottages at Colter Bay at Yellowstone and those were dumps - these are far superior. Very clean, nice lodgy-woodsy feel vs. trailer, clean, nice beds, good bathroom with another sink outside the bathroom, wonderful HUGE balcony and gigantic windows, and a coffeemaker with Starbucks products!

    Also, the lounge opens up at 6am with Starbucks coffee (I'm a fan!) and pastries so you can sit outside and have a nice mountain view breakfast. Or stop in the very cute diner (also opens at 6) for the wonderful huckleberry pancakes! We didn't eat at the Mural room but it has great views. This is also a great lodge to head out from on an early morning safari in your car - drive the 1 mile to Oxbow Flats for some great animal sightings! We saw mule deer, elk and a coyote just walking down the road!

    We ended up staying one more night later in the week at the non-view cabins (no patio). Half the price and a little older. They were a little more claustrophobic, but the bathroom was the same with the same extra sink outside (nice feature). No coffeemaker though. Also, the beds were a little more worn looking. But clean and fine.

    The main lodge has a great lobby room that is gigantic and filled with comfortable furniture and tables and has awesome fireplaces. It is a good place to hang out if it's raining or if you just need a camping break. You can't beat the views! (And this lodge has the best gift shops in the Tetons if you're into that!).

    Excellent stay!


    My wife and I stayed for 3 nights at JLL in 2001. We stayed in one of the view rooms. While the room itself is nothing special - it is fine, comfortable bed, clean, etc. - it is the view that truly makes it special. Every morning and evening we sat out on the porch to take in the spectacular view of the Tetons. The Mural restaurant, despite some of the other reviews, was excellent. We decided to go there for dinner, a second night, because the first night's meal was so good. Service was first class. One night walking back from the restaurant to our room we practically were run over by a huge bull moose. It is also a practical launching off point for the rest of the park (hiking, boating, rafting, site seeing). Wonderful spot. We are planning on going again.

    Recommend Jackson Lake Cottages


    Stayed in the cottages for several nights in early September. Although we didn't have a view, we could sit outside and the surroundings were wonderful. The double beds were comfortable. The room was clean, had nice furnishings, and plenty of space. The location was well suited as a base for taking day trips. I loved seeing the elk and moose. I would definitely stay there again.

    We expected more


    The best part of staying here, and this is a pretty great reason, is the view of the Grand Tetons from the lodge, especially through the giant picture window. It is literally breathtaking, and there is no better way to end a day than to sit there with a refreshment, listen to the piano, watch the sun set. The opportunity to see moose is also pretty amazing. We expected a little more from the actual accomodations, though. We had a standard (non-mountain view) room in one of the many rows of cabins. It was a little dark for my taste, and the bathroom a little old, but otherwise perfectly comfortable. The pool was great, except that it was mobbed every time we went there, to the point that we could not get chairs and it was very hard to find a peaceful moment in the pool. We actually left a day early, and am not sure we would stay here again (though would probably stop by to see the view!)

    Never felt welcome here.


    I was very disappointed with this hotel. The rooms were fine and the setting is beautiful but the employees were awful. When checking in the desk clerks were talking to friends and didn't pay any attention to us until they were finished with their conversations. I was very disappointed with the food in both restaurants. My meals were always cold and the coffee was bitter. We had reservations for a large group in the Mural Room on Labor Day for brunch and they put us at four seperate tables with at least 2 tables of 4 between them. When we asked to move closer together they said the other tables were reserved. We were there for at least an hour and nobody was ever seated at any of those tables. The only person who made me feel welcome at this hotel was a bus driver who drove us to church.

    Jackson Lake Lodge - Get the room with a view


    We stayed at the Jackson Lake Lodge on August 20 and 22, 2003. The first night we stayed in a standard room. The second night we stayed in a room with a view of the mountains for $60 more. The rooms were clean and sufficient. The room with a view was a little nicer (refrigerator) and the view was awesome. I usually don't think a view is worth paying for, but it is amazing to wake up and open the shades and view the Grand Tetons. The staff was very nice and courteous. At the walk-in, counter-top restaurant, the food was great and reasonably priced. The food in the more formal restaurant, where a reservation is required, was outstanding, but much more expensive and the service was not good. The main lodge has a stunning two story view of the Grand Tetons.

    Mountain-view room


    Stayed here one night early July- they had upgraded us to a mountain/lake view room and it was wonderful- huge picture windows overlooking lake and mountains- patio furniture- had worried about double beds but they were comfortable and cozy- nice furnishings- enjoyed the float trip we took from here- would definitely stay again especially in a view room- ask for 900 building! Short walk to the pool.

    Don't miss this Teton gem!


    If you want a beautiful and reasonably priced place to stay while visiting the magnificent Tetons, Jackson Lake Lodge is the place to go. Since childhood, with my family and friends I have spent countless vacations at Jackson Lake. From trips with my parents, to trips with friends, to my honeymoon...I have never been disappointed. The cottages are clean and comfy and away from the main lodge. No televisions to distract from the beauty surrounding you. If you forgot to bring a book, no problem: They have a little shop in the main lobby with all kinds of magazines, newspapers, and paperbacks to choose from. There are two places to eat: a formal, first-class dining room and a luncheon-counter type snack bar. The Mural Room is the formal restaurant. I can't decide which is better: The food or the marvelous views of the Tetons you experience while enjoying your meal. The menu changes daily, with such offerings as fresh game, fish, and steak. Reservations are strongly suggested, as around 6pm you'll see families standing in line waiting to get in! The snack bar is a great place for lunch and breakfast. I strongly suggest trying the Huckleberry Pancakes. You can also get yourself an evening ice cream cone or shake. For some adult nightlife, try the Blue Heron, across from the Mural Room. It's a bar that also has nightly entertainment. Besides horseback riding (breakfast rides, dinner rides, and jaunts throughout the day) you can also sign up for tours and float trips. If you want to cool off, they have a nice-sized pool as well. The best part of the lodge are the views. As you top the stairs from the main lobby, floor to ceiling picture windows frame the Tetons. Just outside the back are Willow Flats. A great place to view wildlife (moose, elk, coyotes) in the early morning and early evening. To walk off that big dinner or breakfast, take the walk up Lunchbox Hill. If you're not used to the altitude out here, you can be a little breathless when you get to the top but it's well worth it to get some panorace but in my view it is way over priced. Why spend $300-$400 a night when you can have just a good a time at Jackson Lake Lodge? The views are, in my humble opinion better than from Jenny Lake and the food just as good. Don't overlook this Teton gem!

    We stayed in a cabin at the Jackson Lake Lodge. I thought it was charming. We did lots of hiking around Jenny Lake. That lake was crystal clear. Larry smoked his pipe while we walked.

    We got to visit both Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. There was much to see and we took over 1,000 pictures. We tried to pick from those pictures for you to get a glimpse but this is something that is best seen for yourself.

    OK everybody, we rode another 504 miles today. From Chadron, NE to the Grand Teton's. What a beautiful ride. We went from the flat lands on up into the mountains. It was simply gorgeous. We stayed at the Jackson Lake Lodge. Check in was crowded, and it must have been an AARP convention! I think we were the youngest people in the lodge. Met some …

    This morning we departed the Old Faithful Inn and headed for West Thumb Geyser Basin which sits right on the edge of Yellowstone Lake. More fantastic geothermal features but this time with the lake as the backdrop! Doesn't get much better than that. We left Yellowstone NP through the South Entrance and almost immediately had views of the Grand …

    ... a debrief, be it of a hike or for a particular set of people who have spent a particular amount of time with one another, where people are encouraged to give their honest opinions on one another's skills and expedition behavior. Our debrief went very well. It was a very good group, and I was looking forward to my next group with the same zest.

    All in all, it was a good day. Plus, you can't really complain when you get two oreos in the middle of nowhere ...
