Badly needed a room after driving 1200 miles and not one room was available from Denver, CO to Rawlins, WY. The 1st choice is a ran down dump with rail road tracks in back of it and the train blows it's horn all night long. Concrete walls have a nice prison ambiance feeling to it. The bathroom sink and tub... More

This is a no frills, apparently independent, property that is showing some wear & tear, tho it appears to be clean. The vanity sink is worn, scratched & stained. Lack of a back splash panel next to the vanity (presumably the same in all rooms) has caused wall deterioration. The WiFi access is very limited in range - if your... More

First Choice is clean, comfortable and convenient. It met all my travel needs, and I would stay here again. As others have noted, the exterior is as plain as can be, but it’s fine inside. Access to rooms is from interior hallways. My single queen room measured a spacious 12x18 feet, not including the bath and a large entryway. The... More

To start, we were given a room that was so musty and smelly that it was difficult to stomach. To be fair, there was a heavy rain that morning, but....that shouldn't explain the stench. The rooms are very large. We slept well with our dryer sheets in front of the A/C to cover the smell. The breakfast was very basic... More

The walls in our room were made of concrete, which insulated us from outside noise. My wife and I slept very well after a 10 hour drive. From the outside the motel doesn't look very appealing, but don't let that throw you off. The rooms are clean and quiet. My friend stayed in a separate room in the motel and... More

It seemed like there were not your average price motels to be found. But for the money our room was clean and comfortable. Nice location...easy on and off from I-80. The receptionist was helpful. We'll probably stay there again.

This place is fine for what we paid and gave us a good night's sleep in a clean room. It's not in a very attractive area, but it seemed safe enough. We drove to get dinner. I didn't notice any eateries nearby. The staff we met were very friendly and efficient. The breakfast was pretty basic, but if you just... More

I'm giving this five stars because it succeeds at what it is - a bare bones facility catering t those who need a place to sleep. The folks who worked there were all pleasant, the room and beds were clean, and while the bathroom needed fixing up, it was nevertheless clean as well. If you're looking for a resort hotel,... More

We called for a reservation from about 100 miles away and had no issues. Gen was very helpful and remembered us when we arrived. The building looks like it's an old warehouse, and the room walls are cinder block. Location is also in kind of an industrial area, but with some other stuff nearby. Definitely not fancy, but we had... More

Clean rooms and sheets, but very dated in the early 70's style. The exterior of the building is original in a grey block style. I stayed two times (one week apart). First stay they messed up my reservations (requested 2 beds) and got one. Second time was fine. The breakfast was lame, and skipped it. No coffee makers in rooms.... More
