Well Maintained, Quaint, Friendly Motel

Pros: Clean and well maintained, owners are trying hard
Location: Fresh pies at the Cowboy Diner, breakfast overlooking Horse Creek, photos sitting on a 6' Jackalope and learning at the Mountain Goat Museum.
We needed a place to stay when visiting Grand Teton National Park. This motel was about an hour drive from the North end of the park. The hotel is from 50-60's, but very well maintained! They decorate everything with the theme of the bear. We slept so well on good beds and pillow. We had an interesting experience with returning a lost baby goose that was running through the parking lot with it's parents at a nearby park. We had Wifi but not cable, which we did not need.
