JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - A recent report says Jackson Hole lodging had about 98 percent occupancy on the day of the solar eclipse and the day before.

According to the recent Destimetrics report, the lodging occupancy reached 98.08 percent on Aug. 20, the day before the eclipse, and 97.57 percent on Aug. 21.

Chamber of Commerce President Anna Olson tells the Jackson Hole And News Guide (https://bit.ly/2ffm77e ) that occupancy stayed around 90 percent through Aug. 26. The average price for rooms was $405 per night during August.

Olson says the occupancy rate for the rest of August was in the high 80s up until the last week, which she thinks dipped because children returned to school.
