Travelers who want to immerse themselves in the landscape of the Wild West should visit Jackson to discover a little more about cowboy culture while admiring some truly stunning mountains and majestic wildlife. This Wyoming town is a throwback to the days of the wild frontier, and has some of the largest stretches of unspoiled nature in the entire American West. Book one of the rustic and cozy boutique hotels in Jackson to experience the area in the authentic, local way it should be experienced.
Stay at Rustic Spring Creek Ranch
Rooms at Spring Creek Ranch include both modern amenities like high-speed Internet and rustic touches like a wood-burning fireplace. You will also get a great view of the ranch’s pond and surrounding cliffs. Visit the hotel’s spa and restaurant to indulge and relax, or get your adrenaline flowing with one of the many outdoor activities available. Try white water rafting or hiking in the summer, and in the winter, get your skis on or hop in a snowmobile!
Enjoy the View at The Alpine House Lodge & Cottages
Living up to its name, the Alpine House Lodge & Cottages is one of the best hotels in Jackson for travelers who want to stay in the rugged Wyoming mountains and hit the slopes. This eco-friendly lodge has a naturally beautiful setting, but is also surprisingly close to town, which you can get to with the lodge’s complimentary bicycles. Explore the bars and restaurants in nearby Jackson, or just stay in and enjoy the mountain vista from your balcony.
Visit the Budget-Friendly El Rancho Motel
Travelers on a budget will love the low-cost yet comfortable and clean rooms at the El Rancho Motel in Jackson. The great location right in downtown Jackson allows you to walk to plenty of shops, cafes, and restaurants, and easily access the nearby slopes in winter for skiing season. The motel provides you with passes for the nearby Jackson Hole gym and spa, so you can enjoy some luxurious amenities while paying modest prices.
See a Different Side of Jackson at Parkway Inn
The Parkway Inn offers upscale elegance with Victorian decor, granite countertops, pillow top mattresses, and deep soaking tubs creating a luxury traveler’s haven in the American West. Stay in the incredible comfort of Parkway Inn while still being close to the ski slopes during winter, and a drive away from the impressive National Parks of Grand Teton and Yellowstone. When you’re done roughing it outside, retire back to the inn to relax in the jacuzzi, indoor lap pool, or dry sauna.
Jackson Hole Lodge
The cozy, rustic Jackson Hole Lodge includes authentic Western touches like wooden decor, fire pits, and comfortable beds with country-style bedding and pillows. Outdoorsmen will especially love this lodge as you can go fly-fishing, rafting, hiking and horseback riding just minutes away in the summer, while in the winter you can explore the Snow King ski area. Within the hotel itself, you can relax in the outdoor pool in the summer, or end a long, active day by unwinding in front of the flat-screen TV in your room.
