I have been going to the First Inn for years, and in spite of this rather hard review will continue to stay there. The hotel is dated and the rooms are in rough shape. I can attest that the breakfast cinnamon rolls and muffins were dug out of a dumpster. To put it in perspective, my teenage son refuses to... More

What I expected: The hotel is definitely nothing fancy. As a matter of fact, it is a bit dated and looks a kind of iffy from the outside. We arrived late and had to ring for someone to let us in. The guy who checked us in (the owner?) was nice, but I think we had to wake him up... More

The staff is very helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly. The hotel, right on the street, is nothing fancy. It was surprisingly quiet and backs up to a little creek with a sitting area. The rooms are dated but clean. Was expecting a smelly room but it really wasn't bad! Smoking pot in the rooms are ok but no smoking cigarettes in... More

Very nice people , a bit on the funky side rooms are a bit dated. Our bed was very comfortable. They have great cinnamon rolls and coffee in the morning made by one of the girls that works there and they were delish.

My daughter and I needed a place to spend just one quick night on our way to Lake City so we stopped off here thinking $100 would get us a decent place to stay. Wrong! The place smelled like a pot emporium in the hallway. We never did figiure out the smell in the bathroom/vanity area but it was rather... More

First Inn is nothing special, and it does not pretend to be. Our recent stay was on a guys only motorcycle trip through the mountains for a few days. So, our bar was not set all that high. Generally clean rooms, nice staff, and "420" friendly (aka pot smoking). Gave us a good nights sleep without incident. The 420 aspect... More

If you're into fancy, keep driving. If you like firm mattresses, good breakfasts and lots of ammenities, keep driving. For us, it was an average 1950's motel. Wall A/C unit, two straight backed chairs, an old Magnavox TV. The toilet had some mold around the rim, the sink cracked and stained. But, the price was good, the proprietor friendly and... More

I'm a positive guy and can overlook a number of things but this place made our skin crawl. Facility was dirty, old and many things in disrepair. Almost left and just forfeited our payment once we pulled back the sheets and say the stained and filthy sides of the box springs. Hopefully, management will realize this type of quality is... More

We were just passing through and needed a place to sleep. It was cheap but clean. It even had an actual key to open door! The breakfast wasn't very good (small muffins and cinnamon rolls) but held us over for a while.

Stayed a couple of days on the way up to Denver and found out they had a fishing pond in the back. My wife and I bought our fishing licenses and she caught the first trout. Many more came. What a sweet surprise. Hotel was old but clean and inexpensive
