We decided to slow down and see some other sites on the way to CO. We need a pet friendly place for two dogs. The staff was good, room large, clean and very comfortable. I slept like a rock as did the pups. The grounds are lovely and our view of a park so soothing. The hotel was quiet and we had a good breakfast. We saw trees from the river and it was an easy walk.

I went to Green River to visit family. Since one of them smokes, I retreated for 2 nights to sleep in clean air. The hot tub was the perfect temperature and the bed linens were soft. The bed was comfortable and the shower was good. The breakfast was usual fare. Lots of toppings for the waffles. It was a pleasant experience.

Positives: Clean. When we were charged twice for the same stay, the hotel was quick and courteous to correct. Negatives: Noisy group of young men in the parking lot, partying from the bed of a pick up truck, maybe 10 parking spaces from the front door of the hotel. It was rather creepy getting our bags and walking through the dark parking lot while they set up a keg and were shouting and throwing beer cans at each other. To be fair, I am *assuming* it was cans of beer they were throwing. Our room had the peephole pryed out and tissue stuck in the hole. The safety lock was literally ripped out - shards of wood sticking out. It turned out this bunch were actually staying in the hotel, so the management turned a blind eye. A woman in a wheelchair was getting things out of her car at the same time we were, with this going on. No, best to just continue driving, or stop earlier. This place was a Holiday Inn Express when we booked earlier this year, but we were notified that they were booted from the chain and taken over by the new owners.

We checked in early which wasn't a problem "yes".. Our room was exceptionally clean and the beds we so comfortable we didn't want to get up.This is a great hotel with all the amenities, our family loved the pool and the hot breakfast. We will be back, 1st Choice Inns you are awesome;)

Originally booked this hotel when it was a Holiday Inn Express. Received a call that they were no longer going to be part of IHG but decided to stay anyway. It's pretty expensive for what you get and we weren't able to acrue some IHG points. The room was fine and the pool and hot tub were nice. Breakfast was good.

This was a Holday Inn Express until September 2018. Typical Holiday Inn room which was very clean. The breakfast was the usual hotel fare with one delicious bonus - locally grown watermelon. The biggest negative was attempting to shave with practically nonexistent light in the bathroom. There were two sconces, one with a dim orange light (my guess a 2000 Kelvin bulb) and the other a dim white bulb. Requested brighter bulbs but front desk could not accommodate the request. I finally resorted to using the light on my iPhone to complete shaving - a task requiring unusual contortions.

Made a reservation through the HIE Rewards Program using our accumulated points. Unfortunately the day before our arrival this property ended their relationship with IHG. Fortunately somebody from this property called to inform us of the change and offered a so called discounted rate for our trouble. Upon arrival we found a clean but average property offering essentially the same amenities as a HIE. We had a decent, clean room with no problems. My only disappointment is that I could not see anything that would justify a nightly rate that at the time (Aug 31, 2018) was 20-25% higher than 4-5 adjacent other brand motels we searched on TripAdvisors. Makes me wonder who quit who, the motel or IHG???

Second time we have stayed here. First time was with a dog and a cat, second time was with two dogs. Both times everything was excellent and the staff is wonderful! Super friendly and helpful. We left an item behind and they went out of their way to help us get it back.

I almost always check trip advisor before booking a hotel. There was another hotel that was ranked higher but we chose HIE because we love the signature cinnamon rolls. We were highly disappointed that there were no cinnamon rolls and we were told that HIE has discontinued their cinnamon rolls. I thought this was unusual because we had stayed at several HIE's during this vacation and ALL had cinnamon rolls. This hotel also only has an orange juice BLEND instead of pure Orange Juice. If you are like me and choose HIE's for your stay because you LOVE their cinnamon rolls, then DON'T STAY HERE!

Chose the Holiday Inn as I needed a place to stay for a night on a cross country trip. Staff was friendly and helpful as I did not have a reservation. The room was comfortable and clean. It's been a few years since it's last remodel so it shows it's age a little but it's a good choice. There's even a good restaurant right across the street.
