Wort Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls
Originally opened in 1941, the historic Wort Hotel (it's listed on the National Register of Historic Places) is a cozy ski lodge in downtown Jackson within walking distance of numerous shops and bars. The 59 large rooms embrace the Western theme that's standard in this area (with cowboy paintings and Western-style comforters) without being overly kitschy, and the on-site restaurant is a popular destination. The Silver Dollar Bar, built in 1950, gets its name from the bar covered in 2,032 uncirculated Morgan Silver Dollars from the Denver mint. The hotel has a fitness center, but unlike larger resorts, there is no spa or Jacuzzi, so those looking for some R&R may consider the nearby White Buffalo Club.
The Lexington at Jackson Hole Hotel & Suites Rating: 3.0 Pearls
The 89-room Lexington at Jackson Hole Hotel & Suites offers clean, spacious rooms with a decent number of free perks. Although designs are fairly ordinary, with off-white walls, some tube TVs, and standard furnishings that could use updating, this hotel's strengths lie in its convenient location in Jackson and its personal touches, such as the homemade cookies served in the afternoon. The Lexington offers other conveniences, too, including the free airport shuttle and free ski shuttle. The hotel lacks facilities, though, with just one small pool and no spa or restaurant. But with its great location, there's still plenty to do within a short walk.
Inn at Jackson Hole Rating: 3.0 Pearls
The Inn at Jackson Hole is a lower-to-mid-range hotel with a central location, close to the chairlift and Teton Village's small but diverse dining scene. It has 83 fairly spacious rooms with fully equipped kitchenettes and fireplaces (except in the Standard rooms), but bland, rustic decor and no other no-cost amenities. The only outstanding features are the nice pool with mountain views and the solid Japanese restaurant. Parking and Wi-Fi are included in the (unnecessary) resort fee.
The Sassy Moose Inn Rating: 3.0 Pearls
As is typical at bed & breakfasts, the five rooms at the Sassy Moose Inn vary in style: The Cowboy Room is large with sparse log cabin decor, a small tube TV, and soaking tub, while the Wildflower Room is tight with low ceilings and a kitschy early-90s style bathroom. But the inn has a genuinely homey vibe throughout the breakfast area and living room, and what it lacks in surrounding restaurants and shops it makes up for with stunning views of the Tetons (and, of course, the occasional moose). It's a nice, casual option for anyone seeking to be surrounded by the great outdoors.
