“Wonderful - Like going back in time when innkeepers cared about their facilities and guests.”
Reviewed 27 September 2009

We stayed here based on reviews on TripAdvisor and were very pleased.

Check in was easy and efficient. Our room was correct for what was reserved and faced the river as requested.

The room itself was much larger than more modern facilities. The furniture was nice and you could tell the room had been remodeled over the years. The bathroom was also large and had remodeled features. There were two sink areas in the room - one in the bathroom and one in the room which was handy.

The room had more furniture than normal hotels today. There was a desk area, table with two chairs near the sliding glass doors, a couple of plastic chairs with table on the small patio area outside the glass doors facing the river, unit holding the refrigerator and microwave, and another unit holding the TV with drawers.

The desk actually contained hotel branded stationary and envelopes - something you never find anymore.

An oddity leftover from an early time was the bathroom hairdryer. It is a wall unit that comes on when you disconnect the nozzle from the unit. It did work however the nozzle got too hot to hold before my hair was dry.

A highlight of the stay was breakfast. When you check in they give you breakfast tickets. In the morning you present your tickets to get admitted to the breakfast area. When you enter the chef greats you and passes you to the cook to take your order. They had a long list of items to pick from. We choose veggie omelets with potatoes and grits. They were cooked to order so you could choose your vegetables. They came with a fresh salsa on the side and were quite large. They also have a setup like traditional hotel chains with coffee, juice, pastries (looked homemade), etc. to add to your hot cooked entrees. They also had a great local melon served here that was perfectly ripe and sweet. There was also a juice option that was some kind of guava mix that was unusual and fun to drink. Seating options inside are limited and if they are busy you will likely share a table with other travelers. You can also sit out on the patio amongst the hummingbird feeders. We choose this option although it was little cold and enjoyed watching the hummers coming up to drink.

The chef was friendly and talked to the diners about the food and the area. From stories he was telling he and his family had lived in the area for some time. He definitely took pride in his establishment and the quality of the food.

We took a little walk around the grounds which are well kept and lovely in that desert area. They have fountains and waterfalls.

Couple of odd notes:

The doors on the rooms don't close automatically so make sure to close the door behind you.

We couldn't find an elevator in the building so if this is an issue for you make sure to get a room on the second floor as that is ground level to the parking lot.

I was very happy to have stayed at this hotel on our trip. It is something you don't find anymore when traveling. The people who run this hotel really care about the quality of the facility.

A nice well-maintained hotel in a not so beautiful town. This hotel has nice clean rooms that might be a little dated in the decor (but so what?). The rooms are comfortable. We didn't have a river view but walked over to that side and were very surprised at how nice it was. The breakfast is what makes this place so unusual. They have a full menu of breakfast items prepared for you on the spot... omelets, pancakes, french toast, biscuits and gravy, chile verde, sausage, basically everything. After the horrible service we had at Ray's Tavern, this place was really nice and kept us from totally deleting Green River from the GPS!

We wanted a midway stopping point and this turned out to be Green River. The rate here seemed high before we arrived.But it was clearly a bargain once there.The location by the river wonderful and the balcony overlook a real pleasure.The room was spacious and clean.More than we expected. But the real surprise was the breakfast.Iyt was not the usual fare of waffle maker,poor pastries,cold cereals,and juice from a machine.Rather there were numerous hot options from a kitchen. Eggs done to choice.Pancakes that were light and delicious with well-prepared bacon beside them. I had many pancakes on this trip and these were the best.What a pleasant surprise.The place exceeded our expectations and made a great start for our trip

This was completely unexpected. After 10 days traveling through souther Utah. We stopped here on our way to SLC. And we had a blast.
We'd a room facing the river and we were welcomed by a great sunset over the river. The pool is small and cozy and faces the river too.

OK also the most expensive at $130, but it has a sort of river view through trees that need cutting back, decent spacious rooms and the best breakfast we had with hot food option - all too rare in the US these days (try any UK hotel for a proper breakfast). internet worked but arrive early for adjoining restaurant as it fills up quickly.

I really can't even hardly imagine human being staying here more than one night. Not because of the hotel but because of the town, it is these towns built because of the highway. But for stop over this is great place. We stopped here while driving from Denver to Vegas. Breakfast was good, rooms were nice (although I hate these installed carpets, they are full of dust).

Used his hotel as an overnight stop after reading reviews and it more than lived up to what had been said. We had a river view room which was superb. Slight wait for breakfast but it was a Saturday. We were given a very good choice and the hot food was cooked to order. Sat outside watching the humming birds feeding. The large room was spotless also had a fridge and microwave and there was free internet access. The latter could be useful as there really is nowhere worth eating in. There was a pool and small spar for hotel guests. Overall excellent value.
