Overpriced for an ok room. Standard breakfast items so nothing special. Elevator made screeching noises as if it had trapped a cat. On the positive side, it's pet friendly so you can bring your hound.

Dear Marc B, thanks so much for your feedback. Upon reading your review, I can see that you have had an atypical experience at our facility, we rarely get low scores. We are sorry that there may have been some shortcomings during your stay. We do work hard to provide nice, clean rooms with a full, hot fresh breakfast each morning - along with a pool and Jacuzzi and fitness center. We are aware of the sound the elevator makes and have been waiting for parts, sorry for the inconvenience. Please do reconsider us for another night in the future, we promise to deliver up a 5-star experience. Thanks again!

We have stayed here a few times and have never had an issue. Hotel is clean, bed is comfortable, and the shower is the best. The staff has always been friendly. The price is decent. We would recommend this hotel if you need to stop near Green River. Utah. There is a restaurant right across the street that has good food.

This is motel-style property, with easy access to your room from your car if you have a first floor room (but steps if you're on the second floor). Clean, relatively comfortable rooms, though does feel a bit dated. Well above average breakfast for hotels of this type. Friendly staff. Seemed a bit pricey, but probably worth it overall versus other options in the area.

It was a wonderfully kept hotel. Everything in working condition, helpful staff and plentiful at breakfast. We enjoyed the heated pool and whirlpool along with our children. This used to be a Holiday Inn Express & Suites but they have really maintained the upkeep on this hotel - it matches any of the other branded hotels we usually stay at and we are Hilton Rewards/Marriott members. Very clean and it felt as if it was upscale- in comparison to many other hotels in the area. We will surely be back.

Rooms were clean, staff was helpful, breakfast was good. Booked through a third-party but next time I'll just book directly for more flexibility (my nephew got sick and we had to cut our trip short by 1 day. If I had booked directly with the hotel the owner could have helped me with a refund or credit).

Stayed here at a whim because I was tired of traveling. The service is incredible and is ensured by the hands-on owner who works there as well. Will definitely be staying here on my next trip through town!

Oakland, California1 contribution
Great location, great room. First hotel that didn't have awful cleaner smell, yet entire facility was very clean. Our room was large and spacious, the vanity inside the bathroom (wished it was outside, but you can't have it all), bathroom size was large as well. Breakfast was served each day during our two day stay, my wife and I woke up to a pleasant meal. Staff was commendable and were keeping up with the heavy rush, we arrived during spring break it seemed. All in all, great experience, surpassed our every expectation, and we would absolutely without hesitation stay again and again in the future. We travel back and forth from Massachusetts to California several times yearly for work. We'll be back! Keep up the good work First Choice Inns..

We drove into Green River welcomed by very nice surroundings and this hotel had really cozy rooms. Convenient parking as we were hauling a 42’ trailer. Loved that fitness center was always open, and that everything worked! Tasty full breakfast in the morning was a pleasant experience and satisfying. Cleanliness was top notch which was kind of surprising as it is a pet-friendly hotel. We always travel with our pups so we will always be staying here on our future trips from here on out!

We stayed on March 16, 2022 in a King Room. Very clean, and easy access to the Interstate. We were so doggone tired after driving in from Nebraska and Kunal, the Manager on site was a sight for sore eyes. He welcomed us graciously and let us use the amazing hot tub they have for guests! The next morning, it was him again putting out some of the best breakfast I've ever seen at any hotel. Must stay and best value in Green River, hands down!
