The room was very large, there were twin beds with a desk, chair plus closet. No TV, no WiFi. The shared women’s and men’s bath was similar to dorms. There was enough privacy that we were comfortable using it. A short distance down the hall — four motel type rooms in our building. We were next to the Guest Lounge building which provided many upholstered chairs, sofas, tables and chairs and restrooms. There was free WiFi and an ice machine there too. Would be happy to stay there again. There are various choices of type of rooms with price tags to match.

We stayed in a cabin at Colter Bay Village in early September. The cabin was fine, very clean, pretty comfortable with space for some unpacking. Bathroom and shower were great. But the real draw of this place was the location, right on Jackson Lake, stunning scenery, great facilities (hire boats, launderette, places to eat, a reasonable shop and deli, excellent ranger station and visitor centre) but not over the top, unlike parts of Yellowstone. We saw a pair of beavers swimming in the bay on our first night and had two wonderful days canoeing and walking in the area. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Food at the restaurant was a bit pricey like all the parks, but you pay for the convenience. Worth visiting Jenny Lake for a walk up the Cascade Canyon and the various turn-offs, especially Oxbow Bend where we saw a family of otters in the river. I feel sure we'll be back to Grand Teton one day.
