“Relaxing 'Western Chic'”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2011

We stayed here June 13 & 14 at the midpoint of our two-week, 4,000-mile road trip from Chicago thru the Dakotas, Montana, Wyoming, and even into Idaho – and back. …

Jackson/Hole with 2 grade-school aged children was by far the most challenging area to nail down a best-guess reservation because it seemed like reviews of every affordable hotel in this area presented legitimate cons. Not every place has a pool (which is important on a long trip w/kids); Teton Village seemed better for the winter instead of summer; the ranches & B&Bs seemed tempting, but we were only going to be around for a couple days ...

Over our two weeks in the West, we stayed in all types of places –motel-quality rooms; Hampton Inns; the historic grand dames of Yellowstone. And then there was what my wife called “Western Chic,” where we’d spend decent enough money – $275 per night – for comfort with a Wyoming flair. I ultimately chose Spring Creek Ranch, tho I was leery because of the reviews that described the place as not a typical hotel experience, but more of “a mixture of housing types including private residences …” some of which resembled “lockout timeshare unit[s].”

But I’m happy to say we made the right choice with Spring Creek Ranch and our standard, 2-Queen, second-floor room with an AMAZING view. It's true, this is not a typical hotel setup. But the overall experience fit the bill for “Western Chic.” SCR overlooks the Jackson Land and Cattle ranch atop the East Gros Ventre Butte. It is beautiful. The property was sprayed with the color of yellow wildflowers in June. At night you hear the cattle lowing and can see the twinkling lights of the Jackson Hole airport, and of course everything is framed by the Teton Range. Next door is the Asian-style Amangani luxury property. I couldn’t tell what, but new construction of some sort was going up nearby. … The heart of Jackson is an easy 5-to-10 minute drive.

The weather was sketchy the afternoon we arrived from Yellowstone – it was rainy, and views of the mountains were enveloped in clouds. (The value of SCR takes a big hit when the mountains disappear.) This was the very end of the spring off-season, the place was not at full guest capacity, but we still had to wait until the clock struck check-in time to get to our room. The gentleman working the front desk was INCREDIBLY snooty and indifferent. While we waited at the Granary bar, we got to listen to the bartender whine to a friend about how difficult his job is. Not a great start.

The fireplace was a major highlight of our room (No. 2204), which maybe could have been considered somewhat plain, but it had enough hints of Western decor. We were happy with it. ... Tho I hadn’t built a fire since I was a teenager living with my parents, I got some nice ones roaring. How could I not? The large woodpiles on the front porches to the rooms were too inviting! … But SCR really expects that you know what to do with a flue. We didn’t have any problems, but the poor folks next door and another couple in a neighboring unit sure did – their smoke alarms were screeching throughout the night. Would it be too much to offer a refresher course to guests and offer to start a nice fire for them? For $275 and up? ...

Our second day was a completely different story and we basked in SCR’s full glory. While we ate a wonderful breakfast at the Granary the fog burned off to unveil the breathtaking view of the Tetons. My wife later enjoyed a message offered by SCR’s spa service. Over at the adjacent horse ranch, my boys rode for the very first time and said it was one of the top highlights of the entire trip. They later let off some steam at the small but heated outdoor pool. I got my fill of touring some scenic vistas of the Tetons with tons of amazing photos. SCR is a nice, easy drive from Grand Teton NP Visitors Center in Moose …

Again, these were Days 10 & 11 of a 15-day road trip, sandwiched between a busy & exciting stint at Yellowstone NP and our inevitable journey back to the Midwest. We needed comfort and a place to rest & relax before a long stretch of driving. And, for us, Spring Creek Ranch delivered.

Room Tip: We confirmed ahead that we'd have a view of the mountains from our balcony. Also, previous revie...

This place is amazing. There is a real fireplace with logs outside the door... we had a cozy fire at the tail-end of summer! The breakfast was delicious and beautifully-presented. The studio unit I had was clean and immediately comfortable. Sitting outside on the deck, you couldn't hear any of the neighbors, the view was stunningly unreal--it really felt like you owned the place. The staff was very helpful, relaxed, and friendly. Location feels like a far-off escape, yet it is only minutes to the center of Jackson. Sincerely, it is the ideal place to stay if you are traveling to the Tetons.

We visited SCR for the second time this September, and once again we had a wonderful time. It truly is one of the most beautiful places. Staff were friendly and helpful, the restaurant was great and the nature trip we took was really interesting. We travelled with my mother this time and the two rooms we had were fantastic. We had the suite and she had the studio. Her room in particular was so beautifully decorated. It is such a romantic place with the wood burning fires and the tranquil setting. The stars at night are dazzling, I have never seen anything like it. Because it's in such a peaceful high up setting the views are incredible. We went on a balloon ride as well which was amazing. It is really worth the money. We will be back!

Room Tip: The studio or suite would be great for a couple. I like the separate bedroom and bigger bathroom of...

We stayed at a one-bedroom condo at Spring Creek Ranch in August for four nights. We had a pleasant easy check in/out in the main building. We did not use the pool or spa or other activities on offer as we had our days planned with activities outside the resort. The condo was very nice and quite comfortable - it would be a stretch to say that it is/was luxurious. Housekeeping was a bit erratic, sometimes the bed would be made up completely, other times it was half made, some days the trash was emptied, some days not... we didn't report it as we really couldn't be bothered to deal with it, we just put up with it. We LOVED the majestic views, the cool fresh air, the peace and quite. We relaxed, read, sat on the deck with our early morning coffee, and enjoyed cocktails as the sun gently set behind the Tetons. The sky at night with the stars shining so bright was amazing. We spent a great evening at the Granary, relaxed while we had drinks on the lovely outside deck and moved indoors for dinner where it was nice and warm - the temperature drops rapidly when the sun finally sets. Dinner was delicious; we had friendly relaxed service from Owen and Scott who took great care of us. All in all it was a wonderful stay and a great escape from our hectic city life.

The staff at Spring Creek were very nice & helpful, but the rooms need a remodel! My room was on the second floor with an incredible view of the Tetons. The room had a small deck, which I didn't use because it had very cheap/uncomfortable deck furniture. They need to put some comfy, cushioned chairs out there. The room smelled like an old cottage/smoke, mainly because there was a wood burning fireplace. The tile in the bathroom was dark brown/black and had moldy grout. The bed was fine..in the middle for comfort. The biggest problem with the room were the flies! It didn't help that there was a big hole in the screen door. I would close the room up for the day & go hiking & come back to at least 5 big flies in my room. I would then spend the next 1/2 hour killing flies...relaxing..not! The TV was the size of a postage stamp. It was hard to see laying in bed. The rooms have so much potential! I would only return to this hotel if they remodeled the rooms. Otherwise, I think there are better options available.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a view of the Mountains. The second floor rooms are much quieter.
