“In Dire Need of a Remodel”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

OK, I looked at Trip Advisor and saw the 4 star average, but what a disappointment this hotel was. It is very aged, dark panel with old, brown carpet. Our double room did have a microwave and small refrigerator, but no coffee, cups, or spoons. There was only one bar of soap, and you had to stand under the shower a very long time in order to get clean. The shower sprayed water out in an extremely light mist, hence, not saving water but upping the use time to rinse off. We stayed two nights and our room was not touched after the first night; not even to replace the roll of t.p. Plus, I could almost touch the ceiling, and I'm short! Not a bargain for the price as a lot is lacking.

Room Tip: Not sure if there is a good room here

Our customers have been good to us for our 4 star average review and we feel blessed for that. We work hard to provide clean, comfortable and affordable rooms. The motel is old and we have done a lot of upgrades for our customers but we also know there is still a lot to do. As we can we are updating rooms to make the stay of our guests the best they can be. We do provide free wifi, a flat screen tv, a microwave and a fridge in each room at no additional fee.

(We will have that shower head replaced.)

We do apologize that we didn't replace the tp, sometimes we do miss things as we clean and check rooms. We try not to but it does happen, we would have been happy to give you a new roll if you would have asked. :)

This is a very basic motel -- on the plus side, it is inexpensive, very quiet and the staff is helpful and friendly. There is no breakfast, but there is a nice coffee/breakfast shop just down the street. On the negative side, the mattresses (two queens in our room; we tried them both) were very old, lumpy, and worn out, giving that unpleasant "falling out of bed" feeling on the sides. In addition, our room was very drafty, with the cold night air flowing in through the door on all sides. I agree with the previous reviewer that an increase in nightly rate coupled with some upgrades in the property (especially the mattresses and some weather-stripping) would go a long way toward increasing opinion of this motel. As it is, I would not stay there again and would only recommend it to very budget-minded travelers.

An older property that could use some upgrades, but for the price of my stay and the limited lodging choices in the area it was a nice respite after a long drive from Henderson, Nevada. The most memorable part of my stay was the extreme water pressure in my shower, which felt like a blast from a fire hose, but was welcoming none the less. There is no breakfast offered on the property and I believe the owners could boost their occupancy rate if they raised their rates a little bit, invested in some property improvements, and offered a full hot and cold breakfast. Since there are limited services along I-70 in this area of Utah, it would leave a nice impression on travelers if they were well fed before being sent on their merry way.

Thank you for your comments. We are upgrading as we can. We have done something in every room. We continue to work to make this place a good place to stay for our guests.

While it is true we don't offer breakfast at the motel you can receive a discount at a local restaurant for staying here. There also is a restaurant that is open 24/7. Maybe someday we will offer breakfast, but for anyone who has been to our lobby there is just not space for breakfast. :)

Very comfortable, inexpensive rooms. The kind you can park at your front door. Family run, clean nice towels, good shower, updated or renovated. We have friends who recommended this place and we are glad they did...we would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a recently renovated room?

I love the Robbers Roost.

It's a simple clean motel where you can rest up, get a shower, leave your gear and use a base to visit the San Rafael swell. The owners are helpful and Ray's Tavern is just around the corner. I've stayed twice now and would not hesitate to return.

2 nights stay in September 2013. When we arrived, we noticed, that both door frames of entrance door and bathroom were contorted, so we had to slam the doors to get ´em closed. But we weren`t the only ones, who had this problem because of the door-slamming from other rooms during the nights. OK – it`s an old building, but this problems can be fixed.
No TV-channel-guide in the room - had to ask the manager to get one
When coming back from a day-trip in the afternoon, of the second day, both beds weren`t made!!
The manager friendly told me, to put our trash for waste sepration in different garbage bins located next to the office. Hey – we`re on vacation and paying money to relax and not separate our trash!!
If you like coffee in the morning – forget it! Neither a coffeemaker in the room nor a complimentary coffee in the lobby/office. You have to wait until 8 o`clock, until the small marketplace round the corner of the motel opens – there you can buy your coffee or you take a walk/drive to a fast food chain. We`ve been to a lot of motels during our many vacations in the US. Everywhere – even in some dumps like Motel 6 for example- you at least get a coffee. I think that must be a basic service. The microwave in the room isn`t absolutely necessary. To be serious – how many vacationers need a microwave? It´s not too expensive to install a coffeemaker in the lobby or buy some basic coffemakers for each room.
Finally – the bite on my right calf, which itches the next 2 weeks – where have i gotten it? During one of our several hikes in the region around Green River or...?
Despite all that – the management was friendly and helpful and we got a cheap rate, but if we ever stay here again during a possible vacation is doubtful.

Thank you for your comments. The motel is old, it was built in the 50s. We have done a lot to the motel since we bought it. It is under a constant state of updating or remodel somewhere at the motel. We are working as we can to update the rooms. Many have been updated either completely or partially (ie updated bathroom, or new carpet).

We apologize for not getting you new tp, sometimes we do miss things. We would have given you a new roll if you would have asked.

We do have recycling bins at the motel (Aluminum, paper and plastic) and perhaps that is what the person was suggesting as far as separating your trash since it seemed you were heading that way.

It is true we don't offer coffee, perhaps we will in the future. For now we have a microwave and fridge in the room for our guests convenience.

Good location in town and really good price. The room was clean, and we were happy to see the microwave, mini fridge, and nice tv. Bed was just ok, typical inexpensive motel bed. Shower was good. Management was friendly. If staying in Green River again, we would stay here.
