Overnight in Jackson

We spent one night here in our way to Yellowstone. The gentleman at the front desk was great when we checked in and out. He walked us to our room for check in to make sure that we were settled. The room was what I imagined a western town room should look like. We loved it. We had a family room with bunk beds and my grown kids had fun with them.

Wonderful small motel

This was a wonderful place to stay, we even got upgraded! The owner was so kind, he even sent us to a “locals” hiking spot. It was tough! Great view though. We were brought up to our room to make sure everything was ok.
