We stopped overnight on our way from Colorado to Zion. Clean, comfortable, friendly staff. Large room with coffee maker, fridge and microwave. Highly recommend for overnight stay. Plenty of room to park our truck and 5th wheel, too.

Main reason for choosing Green River is that it is only 45 minutes from Arches national Park and the rates there vs Moab are about 60% less! Our stay at First Choice Inn was quite nice. The room was very comfortable and clean. When we checked in we were asked what we wanted for breakfast, they offer a substantial breakfast sandwich and drink that you pick up in the AM which was quite good. Would definitely consider staying here again if / when in the area.

We arrived on a busy Saturday night which was sold out as we got the last room. That being said I was grateful or the room. That’s where it ends for us. We paid for a room with 2 Queen beds. Wouldn’t it stand to reason that we would have 2 kids stay with us? Well, they charged us $10 extra per child for the privilege of getting to stay here. In an effort to get our money’s worth we took the kids to the pool.(literally 🤣) The pool was slimy on the bottom while the hot tub had a solid layer of sand and dirt at the bottom of its lukewarm water! So, if you’re expecting to use it I’d stay away. The room was clean, and the bathroom was adequate and that’s why I gave them 3 circles.

The logo on the sign looks like a bank, we almost drove by. We made last minute reservations and were very pleased with our choice. The pool is open til 11 which we enjoyed as we arrived after 10. The person who checked us in was funny and efficient. The room was clean and perfect. For breakfast we had a choice of a hot breakfast sandwich or a breakfast burrito, which was good. A great choice if you go to Green River!!

I made a reservation for labor day weekend on booking.com. After going through a zone without cell phone reception I got a fairly rude voicemail saying they couldn't figure out how to charge my credit card and were canceling my reservation. It was a holiday weekend and I ended up having to drive 2 hours out of my way.

Dear Nathan, We are so sorry that the credit card you guaranteed your arrival with was a card that declined. We do, actually, honor all reservations that have a valid form of guarantee. We did reach out to inform you that the card was declining and your reservation was no longer guaranteed as such, and asked for a valid form of payment to secure your reservation. Since your reservation notes from the third party online site with which you reserved indicated that you would be arriving at 6pm, we courteously held the non guaranteed reservation until 6pm, whereupon, we had no choice but to cancel as you had not arrived and had no valid form of payment. We are sorry that you had to drive an extra two hours and apologize for any inconvenience caused. Thank you for your feedback. Kindest Regards, Natalie - GM
