The Hampton Inn and Suites of Green River is located just off Interstate 80 on the edge of Green River, Wyoming. The location is beautiful! The hotel sits in a sort of valley surrounded by rock-crested mountains. Management had the inspired idea of lighting up the hills located directly behind the hotel showing off the rocky peaks, creating an awesome evening and nighttime vista.
Green River, Wyoming sits on the edge of the Flaming Gorge Reservoir and National Recreational Area. The Flaming Gorge Recreational area totals 200,000 acres and draws people from all over the United States to fish and camp. Green River is also the starting point for the Wild Horse Scenic Loop. This scenic loop starts right at the Hampton Inn and runs 50+ miles through the hills and valleys offering sightings of wild horses as well as elk, antelope, deer, and longhorn sheep. Although the road is a combination of dirt and rock, the drive itself is worth the trip! (Be sure to bring a camera.) Downtown Green River offers a variety of eateries, quaint shops and sightseeing stops that make a stay in Green River enjoyable. The Green River itself runs through downtown and provides kayaking areas, picnic spots and bike paths set up for the whole family to enjoy.
After a fun day outside the Hampton Inn welcomes both families and business travelers with clean, crisp rooms that provide generous space for stretching out and relaxing. The hotel has a swimming pool, fitness area and whirlpool available, as well as free Wi-Fi. There are accommodations for any size family with comfortable queen or king suites that include wet bars and offer in-room whirlpool tubs. The hotel welcomes family reunion groups, as well as business conventions and can provide conference rooms for meetings. There are laundry facilities for guests and laundry pick up service is available.
Your Hampton Inn stay includes a hot breakfast that will help get you up and off to see all this area has to offer! If you don’t have time for breakfast the staff has “to go” sacks filled with breakfast treats and bottled water set out for your convenience, just grab one and head out the door!
Just down the block from the hotel (an easy walk) is Penny’s Diner which is open 24 hours a day and is a good place for a midnight snack or homemade piece of pie, always open and always welcoming for the single traveler or the whole family.
As always, this writer seeks out pet friendly hotels and unfortunately, this Hampton Inn does not accept pets. This should not discourage a stay though as there is so much to see in this beautiful piece of Wyoming and a little research shows that the Green River area veterinarians offer boarding facilities, making it easy to arrange a pet-hotel for your furry friend.
Whether luck, pleasure or business has you traveling across Wyoming plan to stop over in Green River. The beauty of this desert area is unforgettable, and the Hampton Inn and Suites will provide a comfortable place to stay while enjoying all the amenities this area has to offer.
