Enjoy Jackson on a Budget

Cheap areas to stay in Jackson

You might think that an escape to one of America's most celebrated mountain resorts would be expensive. However, there are plenty of cheap Jackson hotels that can help to make a bargain adventure to the soaring, snow-capped Tetons and the sculpted valleys of Yellowstone a reality. You can even find them a few blocks south of the Jackson Town Square, hemmed in by saloons and apres bars. There are more options dotting Broadway as it runs across Flat Creek on the outskirts of the town. Motels also look over Snow King Mountain to the south – perfect for budget-conscious skiers.

Spin the spurs and don the leather boots, because you'll be feeling like a real rancher in the Cowboy Village Resort on the south-western side of Jackson town. Built like an old Wild West farm, it's got timber-clad rooms and log-cabin exteriors. The mountain vibes continue at the Elk Country Inn, where you can find a warming lobby fireplace and enjoy free shuttle buses to the ski lifts. Meanwhile, affordable motel-style lodgings with free parking are joined with an indoor pool and spa tubs at the 49'er Inn & Suites.

Where to find cheap food in Jackson

The obvious place to go for food in Jackson is the bustling town square. The epicenter of the ski resort, it's laced with Rocky Mountain grills and cowboy-themed saloons where you can pick up wings and a beer for less. North of that is Cache Street, home to a few burger-flipping diners and pizza joints. Along Highway 89 across the Flat Creek river is a more low-key clutch of taco outlets and grocers, offering international flavors and homegrown Wyoming ingredients for anyone who's bagged a Jackson hotel with self-catering facilities.

Cheap things to do in Jackson

While Jackson's world-class skiing might come at a cost, the natural delights of Jackson Hole – the greater valley in which the town sits – goes beyond groomed pistes and black-diamond runs. A short drive to the north can bring you to the National Elk Refuge, where antlered creatures roam the plains under the majestic Teton Mountains. You can pay extra there for festive sleigh rides during the winter months. Keep going north and you'll soon enter the wonderland of carved summits and spruce-filled valleys that is the Grand Teton National Park. It's regularly hailed as one of America's most breathtaking spots, and hikers will only pay minimal fees to get on the trails. You can also venture further to Yellowstone National Park, to spy out spurting geysers and prismatic volcanic pools – entry there is usually calculated per vehicle.

Cheap ways to get around Jackson

If you've gone for a Jackson hotel in the center of the resort, you shouldn't need to worry about transport – the whole place is walkable, and you can even get to the ski lifts of Snow King Mountain on foot. The much larger Jackson Hole Mountain Resort sprawls over the slopes to the north. To get there, you can load the skis and gear onto a START bus that connects Jackson to Teton Village at the base of the runs. Alternatively, you can bring your own car and seek out a cheap hotel in Jackson that offers parking as standard.
