The breakfast area has only a place to fix your food, then take to your room or outside to eat. Slim choices. The night before we stayed in a much newer and nicer hotel in Casper with a great breakfast, new rooms, and a roomy bathroom, rather than this one where there is barely room to get inside and close...

Like others said, don't let the exterior fool you! Yes, this is an older hotel but the rooms are clean and neat, everything worked. Our room on the first floor was very quiet and with the comfortable bed, we slept like logs! No problem with our dog either.

I agree that the curb appeal is not the greatest, but gave it a try based on reviews. The rooms have been updated with nice quality furnishings and the rooms were very large. Didn't expect much for the breakfast, but it did include hot waffles, hard boiled eggs, and a few other typical things. Compared to the prices of other... More

It doesn`t look like much from the outside but the rooms were clean and the person on the front desk was friendly and helpful. I believe there was a microwave and frig in the room. It was worth the $65 per night rate and I would stay here again.

Friendly staff, clean rooms, very reasonable laundry service, and a great weekly rate makes 1st Choice a great choice. I enjoyed my stay for the most part. The WiFi was sometimes unreliable, the bathrooms a little cramped (but I do like how the sink is located outside of the restroom), and the nightly rates were a little higher than I... More

The management is updating the rooms before fixing the outside. The room we had was clean and comfortable. Checked in late and got friendly service. Visited with the manager in the morning and she was so pleasant. Quick breakfast and back on the road, glad we stopped.

Room was clean, comfortable, and reasonably priced. Lobby was very noisy until 10PM and then very quiet. Breakfast was a joke. Only 2 chairs and one table to sit at, very crowded, and nothing much left. This was at 7:30 AM. Plan to eat somewhere else.

The rate is very reasonable. The motel is fairly clean. However, what ever they use to clean the rooms is overwhelming and we were hardly able to breathe. The breakfast is very limited. The staff was nice.
