We got off the highway in Jackson after a very long day on the road. TripAdvisor listed 3 chain hotels and one called Earth Inn with the highest rating. Despite an iffy start - dark entryway, no one at the front desk right away - we were MORE THAN pleasantly surprised. The plethora of quirky details were not lost on... More

Rooms are very clean, comfortable and very affordable. I wasn't expecting much since this motel was so inexpensive but I was very pleasantly surprised. The owner was extremely friendly and helpful and there is a wonderful restaurant next door.

This is our 3rd stay at this hotel. Friendly staff, and clean rooms. They make the guests feel right at home. Embers family restaurant and Dairy Queen within the same paved lot as well as a gas station. Just off of the I-90 US-71 exit. Quick on and off.

Right off the interstate we found this delightful place to stay, and excellent rates! The Earth Inn says they do everything 6 ft under because it is an earth berm. Rooms very clean, spacious and charming (we got the Jimmy Buffett room).. Excellent wifi. Helpful and hospitable manager. Appealing to anyone who cares about energy conservation, quirkiness, bikers, laborers, or... More

Comfortable and friendly. Price was right and the room was just what we needed for a stay on the road. Wifi was good with microwave and fridge. Hot water and nice time. Good part of the state and just off the highway. Would definitely recommend a trip to the Earth Inn if you're anywhere in the area.

As we travel between Ontario and South Dakota frequently, I have always wanted to stay here. (Disclaimer: we stay in everything from 2 star up.) While I do love the comfort of some chains, it is also nice to stay in small places that are owned by individuals, as this is a part of North America that we are losing... More

The effect of being underground on the air quality is noticable. Not much heating required, nor air conditionning, humidity perfect. The main highway noise... absent. Aaaaahhh! Pleasant sleep and 2 weeks for work stay.

If you rent a hotel room you should be able to control heat and air conditioning. In this hotel, in winter, you cannot control the heat. The thermostat is locked down in the managers office and set for the same temp in every room. And, of course, that temp is too low. IMO that is foolish. The room was also... More

Overall, we found the Earth Inn to be a good value that suited our needs for the night. The room was outfitted with a fridge and microwave. It was a little dark, which is due to it being partially underground. There were many notes and reminders placed all around the room, explaining everything from how to open the blinds on... More
