We stayed here one night (two rooms) last month on a motorcycle trip. Rolled into town with no reservations and finally found a vacancy here after stopping a 3 other motels. It is pricey, but the cost was in line with the other places we stopped at first. We didn't really have any complaints about the place, it was clean...

Thank you so much for your candor! We are glad that the location and the rooms were bright spots. You are right in that we are competitively priced within the market of Jackson. Though it sounds like you visited us in our busy season, we do have many off season specials. We hope to have you back soon to provide...

When I started doing research for hotels in this area, I came across The Painted Buffalo. I thought, really? I looked up some reviews and thought they seemed to be mostly positive, so why not? The reviews are right. The staff here are extremely friendly and helpful. When we got to our room, the front desk even called us to...

We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay! We appreciate the positive feedback, and we are also grateful to hear the not-so-great about the noise as well. We do try to do frequent property walks to minimize noise in the walkways, but as summer continues we will rededicate ourselves to this. We appreciate the comments about breakfast and will...

The staff was wonderful: front desk staff gave us a great restaurant recommendation, housekeeping did a wonderful job keeping the place clean, staff at free continental breakfast was prompt and attentive. The two star rating is accurate: the facility is older and run down, the rooms are not updated, not much hot water. The kids really enjoyed the indoor heated...

Painted Buffalo Inn was clean and comfortable! Good location and surrounded by cute shops and good restaurants and not far from the town square. Comfortable bed and nice shower and bathroom. My first negative comment is no elevator (which is hard for older people, but OK by me) and late breakfast, my only real complaint. Most tours leave VERY early...

Thank you for your review. It looks like a couple of quick issues to serve as reminders for our staff to make sure they are letting guests know our breakfast does actually open at 6am in the summer! We are glad you enjoyed your stay and we will look forward to having you back again soon!

We stayed just one night on our tour of the national parks. The room was clean and comfortable and although we were adjoining the car park, quiet. The location of the Inn is great. Just a short walk to the centre of town where there is lots to see and do. My only critism is the size of the breakfast...

Thank you for your feedback. We appreciate your comments about the breakfast. We are very lucky to have one of the largest breakfast spaces of any hotel in the area but we do recognize that it can become quite busy with sometimes over 500 people partaking. We are happy that we are able to open early for breakfast but of...

The Painted Buffalo Inn staff really made this place memorable. The rooms were larger than most rooms we stayed at on our trip.

I agree that the Buffalo is an adequate overnight stop; but I would not choose it again siust ance I paid $150 just as the high season was beginning for just a basic room. Reasonably clean, they are trying to update....but still, not even a full mattress pad on the bed was a little scary. Holes in the window shades,...
