Lodging

Where will we stay?

Of course, everyone has their own likes and dislikes when it comes to lodging.   When we were younger, we always stayed an inexpensive motels (think Super 8).

Now that we have “matured”, we tend to enjoy the amenities.  We still stay in motels a lot, but lean toward places with interior hallways, good views, 24 hour front desk personnel and of course, continental breakfast. (Fresh afternoon cookies don’t hurt either)

Many of those who travel to Yellowstone, Glacier and Grand Teton National Parks suggest staying inside the park boundaries.  True, that is a great convenience and we have experienced some of the lodges, etc.  All in all, I would say that staying just outside the parks has a lot to offer.  It will be less expensive, there are more amenities, shopping and restaurants.  And it is just a short drive to the Park entrances.

Having said that, one of our greatest experiences was staying inside Grand Teton National Park at Signal Mountain Lodge.  You just walk outside your door, breathe in the mountain air and gaze at the majestic Tetons towering over Jackson Lake.  What could be better than that?  In addition, Signal Mountain has good restaurants, a gas station a general store and  lovely gift shops.  In 2015, Signal Mountain Lodge updated their technology so that wifi is available in all rooms.

I do like to be prepared and we usually have reservations for each night that we will be travelling. So I suggest doing a little research, reading the lodging reviews and then choosing what appeals to you.
