Great place to stay!

This is a great place to stay for the price. The rooms are in a cabin style that was very fun. Rooms were clean and comfy. The only down side was there was only a little curtain covering the bathroom window, which was a little creepy. I kept feeling like anyone could walk past and peek right in so I covered the window with a towel while I showered. Overall though it was a great place, there is a cute little restaurant right next door that had amazing burgers. I would definitely stay here again.

Arrived early evening, walked into office and gave my name. Office manager glanced at a folder, tossed keys to me and walked into the back. Outside temp was 35, room temp upon arrival was 60. Turned thermostat up and got some dinner. Came back, temp was still 60 and no heat coming from vent. Called office, manager said I wasnt operating thermostat correctly. Told him I was a GC and installed HVAC systems, but he was welcome to come show me. He said I could switch rooms. Walked to office and he tossed new keys to me. Turned up heat in new room. Hour later still 60. Call office no answer. Walk over, office locked and manager had left the premises. Asked staff at adjoining restaurant who said he went home and would not be back until 8 am next day. They would give me any way to contact him. Nearest hotel was 60 miles away with no guarantee of vacancy. Had to spend entire night with my wife and 6 yo special needs son in a cold room. Spoke to other guests and they had no heat either.

Cabins are surrounding by tall pine trees. It is a very pleasant environment. Rooms are basic but clean. It will be better to have a microwave oven and refrigerator.

Not a "resort"

We had booked this "resort" for 4 days, however, the pictures on their site are very deceiving. It is NOT a resort, but an overpriced motel. We arrived at 8pm, deposited our belongings in the room and had dinner, by which time the front desk was closed. Was expecting to be able to do our laundry, but they do not have facilities for such - was directed 40 minutes away to Jackson Hole (supposedly there is a place at the local campsite that can be used but wasn't told that until later). The entire area was swarming with mosquitos. The windows to the room were open and the whole place filled with bugs. Closed the windows only to discover there is NO A/C. Room became very stuffy. TV has no local channels and internet is totally unreliable. The convenience of a refrigerator was for not - it was 1cf - couldn't put anything in it. Bed was uncomfortable and noisy. No noise barrior to adjoining room. When I complained at the front desk and asked to speak with the manager, was told he wouldn't be available until after 11am. When I did speak with him, he was rude and refused to refund the prepaid entire stay. There are many lovely places to stay in Jackson Hole and Teton Village. Would never recommend this location to anyone.

Great Location

Our family stayed at the Hatchet Resort this summer and had a great time. The hotel is in the ferfect location for both Grand Teton and Yellowstone national parks.The rooms are rustic yet comfortable and reasonably priced. The front desk staff was helpful with recommendations on activities and a good source of information. The restaurants were reasonable and the qualiy of the food was excellent. I would recommend the hotel to anyone traveling to the area.

Won't Stay Again

Even though this resort was close to the parks and quite rustic, it needs some work. Bathrooms had leaky toilets and rat traps. needless to say the wife freaked out. Won't stay here again. For a similar price you can find better hotels within the Teton National Park itself.

Hatchet Resort - Moran

This place has potential, but the service was bad. When we arrived the office was closed (closes at 8pm). The key to our room was in an envelope outside the office door. The room they gave us did not have heat nor hot water. We called the front desk and nobody answered. We called the resort's main number and nobody answered. We left a message on their answering machine, but nobody responded. When we went to the front desk the following morning, they apologized for the inconvenience and gave us another room. The next day maid service never arrived. We mentioned these issues to the front desk at the conclusion of our stay and all they did was apologize for the inconvenience and state that they are having trouble getting help.
