Very nice and prompt customer service, management is also good and breakfast was awesome. The location was also very soothing and the view from the window was delightful. Overall it was a very nice stay and would prefer it again if we come again here.

Hotel's Favorite
Optimum experience; and yes First Choice. Location is ideal in Green River. It's across from the best restaurant in town, for one thing. And by the way, I appreciate the more modest sign: First Choice Inns at the Swell. Comfort and convenience are obvious priorities. Proof: the comfy chair in the corner. In other places, how many times have you used every surface for your luggage and had to sit on the bed to put on your socks? Breakfast was good -perhaps not that unusual. Staff was delightful. So, sure we booked First Choice for our return cross-country trip. And by the way, Green River, Utah, is the perfect landing place for your adventures into the gorgeous canyon lands all around.

The hotel is old and tired, but clean enough. It is in a town whose only industry seems to be people passing through. Given the price it was better than expected, friendly staff. The breakfast is ok. Pool is only open 5pm-11pm, which is a bummer.

The best example of a clean hotel, in every fashion of the word. Seems to have been given a facelift. There’s a new pool & jacuzzi in the works which looks fantastic. My room had an exceptional view out the window and it was quite large. I just stayed at a posh upscale hotel in downtown Salt Lake City and this hotel beats it by a mile. Bright colors in the corridors, lobby is extremely inviting as are the modern touches throughout. Breakfast was out of this world, totally unexpected to be as good as it was, to be frank. We had a splendid stay here and we will absolutely be back. Thanks for raising the bar First Choice Inn.

I can’t say enough good things about our stay here! Great customer service, convenient location, and an excellent HOT breakfast! Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The gym was small, but sufficient enough to get a workout in before we hit the road again. We will definitely stay here again when we’re in the area!

We stayed at First Choice Inn on our way home from Las Vegas. The gentleman at the check in desk was very friendly and helpful. We were treated also when unloading luggage by two darling cats! Our room was clean, fresh and perfect for our night! I. The morning our breakfast was exactly what we wanted - eggs, bacon and link sausage! The coffee was fresh and hot ! We were refreshed for the rest of our travels home!!

The owner, Kunal is a "salt of the earth" type of person. We were driving from Las Vegas to Denver at night with a packed car and two dogs. Kunal stayed up and waited for us to arrive at 4 a.m., gave us a late checkout, and charged us a very reasonable additional fee for the dogs. I've paid way more at dingy hotels. He was there during our checkout as he had been covering for some employees that hadn't arrived. He remained incredibly friendly and gracious throughout the visit considering he probably slept a total of 2 hours. The room was very clean and the beds quite comfortable. The breakfast was the cherry on top, freshly hot cooked items served up, he didn't even mind if we took some for our dogs. We definitely lucked out by finding First Choice Inn. Good price, perfect halfway location, pet friendly, clean, and amazing hospitality. Kudos to Kunal for making our trip so much easier and enjoyable.

This hotel was more than an anomaly, so fantastic. What an amazing breakfast in the morning with friendly staff putting it out. Clean, roomy accommodations. Owner checked me in and he was the friendliest guy I’ve seen behind a motel desk. The water/shower pressure was not only the best, they had massaging heads which actually gave me a massage. I got out of the shower on the morning of my planned departure and went back to sleep I felt so relaxed, overstayed my welcome but wasn’t disturbed till 1 o’clock till I called down and extended my stay to extend my restful experience. It was like the hot tub effect in a shower. Never had that before, this is the best place to stay in Green River and it’s not even close. Bravo!
