Would like to leave a 5 star review, but this place is really showing its age.
The view is amazing.
The people working here are doing a good job.
The sofa bed is pretty much unusable as is...we took the mattress and put it on the floor so it could be used.
The room was musty.
My family and I booked 2 nights at this awesome lodge in the 2-bedroom cabin. It was absolutely wonderful.. the service was always friendly, the food as the restaurant was delicious, and the cabin was spacious, clean and very well appointed. They provided plenty of towels and extra blankets and pillows. Everything was nicely updated and in good working condition. Since the Tetons is fairly small (appx 35 minutes from North to South entrance), the location was wonderful, quiet and convenient to everything. We loved the small touches like a lounge overlooking Jackson Lake with coffee and hot cocoa in the mornings. I highly recommend this place!!
I decided after the first mouse that I'd figure out my review by starting with a non-mouse rating, and then subtract a star for each mouse we found in our room(s). That left me with (4 minus 3) a single star.
In short, we had three incidents of finding mice in our rooms in just three and a half days.
In our first room, a mouse appeared on the second full day, we moved (at 11PM) from that room to another -- in which we found another live mouse the next morning. (Important: that second mouse's droppings were not cleaned up by daytime housekeeping, even after we specifically asked for it to be done. The night cleaning crew handled that for us.)
We decided to stick it out, but three mornings later we woke to find a dead mouse in that second room, caught in a trap.
We left. We cannot recommend this place until they get their mouse problems under control.
** Review, Minus the Mice **
- The security team and the night cleaning person were both fantastic.
- The view is astounding.
- Most of the front desk crew, including the manager, were great, which is why we tried sticking it out after mouse #2.
- The on-site gas station and convenience store were really useful.
- The rooms both showed signs of recent improvements (esp. modernizations).
- The beds were very comfortable.
- We ate three times at the one restaurant they still have open. Dishes ranged from respectable to awful.
- One front desk clerk should learn that smiling when giving the guest a verbal shrug *while smiling* is probably not a good idea. We let it go, but it's a thing that's not going to bring desired results.
- The sofa bed (in each room) looked very old.
- I didn't like the smell of either room.
- Day cleaning crew missed the one thing we specifically asked for.
Signal Mountain Lodge was a wonderful, fun and cozy first stop on our vacation through the area. The cabins are rustic and comfortable with minimal but tasteful updates (like a very nice bathroom) and we had plenty of space for our family of three. There a tons of activities available, some of our group went kayaking on the lake, others went swimming. We drove up to the top of Signal Mountain for a great view of Jackson Hole valley and the entire Grand Teton mountain range. The restaurant had decent food and great service and there is a little store/gas station. In the lodge there is ice and a water station as well as a library. Great views of the mountains can be found from many places.
Our family stayed here recently for two nights and had a great experience. We were in a two-room cabin a short walk from the lobby and restaurant buildings. The two-room setup was perfect for us. We loved the quick walk to the lake for strolling and swimming and getting sunrise views of the Tetons was a bonus for our stay. The highlight of our stay was the float trip on the Snake River with our guide Joe. He was knowledgeable and kept both the adults and the kids informed and entertained. We will definitely stay at Signal Mountain again when we return to Grand Teton National Park.
