While staying inside Grand Teton National Park saves driving time, there are several benefits to staying outside of the park. There’s more availability, and reservations don’t need to be made as far in advance. Hotels offer more amenities and are more budget-friendly. There are more dining options in town, and often with fewer crowds, budget-friendly prices, and more menu options. The entrances to Grand Teton National Park are open 24 hours a day, giving you unlimited access to the park even if you’re staying outside the park boundaries
