Good

Stayed in a King room, clean, lots of space, couch, chair, table, tiny coffee pot, micro & fridge. Nice TV on swivel base. Bed and pillows were very soft. Bathroom is a little small and toilet did overflow once. Took maintenance about 45 min to show up, but they fixed it quickly, cleaned up and we had no further problems. Pool was nice and clean. Convenience "store" at front desk is nice in case you've forgotten anything. Hotel was very quiet, with the exception of early am garbage pick up on the west side, which, of course, the hotel cannot control. Breakfast is great, offering both hot and cold items. Coffee does come from a machine, so fair warning lol. I've stayed here a couple of times, surrounding area isn't the nicest, but I've never had any problems.

Too far from the city

This was a last minute booking after all other hotels were sold out on that night. The room was ok but the cleaning lady tried to enter the room at 8am while they were still in the room sleeping.

Business Trip

Staff was just fantastic and extremely helpful. Only issue was age of some of the facilities. Otherwise it could not have been better for the price.

Solid last-minute roadtrip find

During a 2-week camping trip through National Parks, we found ourselves needing a place to crash in Salt Lake City. This hotel was a great find. - available at the last minute - close to the highway - clean and comfortable room (including new carpets) - a reasonable price - breakfast buffet included in the rate (being vegetarian and lactose-intolerant, the options were limited, though that is no different than most hotel breakfasts) - close to downtown where we enjoyed a dinner not cooked on a campstove We travel a lot, whether camping or staying at high-end resorts. This hotel was nicer than most comparably-priced places we've stayed in other cities. (Overall, it seems SLC is relatively inexpensive in terms of hotel accommodations.) If we ever find ourselves stranded in SLC during a roadtrip again, we would stay here.

They may give away your Reservation

Let's start with the positive, the room we had was neat which is rare nowadays. The bed was comfortable and we liked the fact that they actually have a microwave and refrigerator. The location is alright, but you still need a car to head to the restaurants of the Downtown area. The reason why we have to give this place an awful rating is because they gave our room (with whirlpool tubs) to someone else when we had reserved this months ago. We even spoke to the Manager 4 days prior to our arrival and she made sure that everything was good to go. We are totally devastated especially after traveling for a few hours.

Excellent experience

I have stayed there on 5/29-5/30 as a family trip in Salt lake city. This hotel was much better than I expected. Spacious room, free parking, good breakfast, good location and price!! This place also has an indoor pool/hot jacuzzi that would open early in the morning until the late night, even though I did not get a chance to use it. Overall it was an excellent experience with the value that I paid. I would stay this hotel again next time when I visit SLC!
