Hotel's Favorite
Stayed here 2 nites, FABULOUS views of the elk, 2nd floor with balcony and great views of all the elk! Can use a tripod or spotting scope. Great prices/value too! 3 independent heating settings in the hotel, for the best comfort and warmth!!! Great huge room, comfy bed/linens, wonderful kitchen area, fully stocked with dishes, coco and coffee too! BEST place to stay in Jackson Hole if you are there for the wildlife/elk!!! Onlyy 3 minutes to the Visitor center to take the elk ride..

We don't have anything particularly bad to say about the Elk Refuge Inn but at the same time nothing particularly good to say either. The room was a bit old and tired and the road noise was incredible. Most of all for the price we paid (over $400.00 per night) we did not feel like we received a value by any stretch of the imagination. Come to think of it we did not feel like anything in Jackson was a value. Way too overcrowded and overpriced.

The inn and room was exactly as advertised on the website. Website very clearly describes the room types with pictures and I was able to select a room with a balcony as I know I like to have my morning coffee on a balcony when possible. Room was clean and the Inn is following strict Covid guidelines. They are also certified green. Jennifer at front desk was super nice and helpful. Basket of free snacks in the room was appreciated. Location is fantastic - quick drive to GTNP or downtown Jackson. Plenty of parking so even if you are on lower level you don't have to block your view. One thing -- you can hear the cars passing on the highway. Was not an issue for us as we are used to this noise at home.

Wonderful hotel! Clean room, well stocked kitchenette, free in-room snacks. Sarah gave us wonderful tips and we saw 5 moose and 6 pronghorns before dark. Her restaurant recommendation for a birthday dinner was fantastic. We would stay here again!
