Let start with rooms the room i got didn't have tub outdated not by much room was clean only found hair in shower breakfast is sausage,eggs,waffles,bread,yogurt,hard boil eggs not bad staff so far good people and the area at night has some rough people from what ive seen i checked in at 1am.I never had any problem so far.

I came here with limited expectations, since I'd read quite a few bad reviews of this hotel. I found nothing wrong with the place, though, and my stay was perfectly fine. This is an older Sleep Inn. It features that chain's original design, with small rooms and modular showers. The surrounding neighborhood isn't anything special (it's heavy on pawn shops and second-hand stores), but I didn't feel at all unsafe there. I was pleased that there was a wide range of restaurants nearby, as well as easy access to the city. My room was clean, and everything was in working order. The hotel is just off a major freeway, but I found it very quiet. The public areas of the hotel were also clean and pleasant. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I was pleased that they allowed me to leave a bag at the desk after I checked out and re-claim it late in the afternoon. Some reviewers have described the parking lot as unsafe. I saw a number of people smoking in the parking lot, but there was never anyone there I felt I needed to avoid. I certainly did not see any of the crimes other reviewers have described, and I was in and out of the hotel throughout the day and evening. One thing I really liked about this hotel is that it is convenient to public transit. There is an express bus stop less than a block from the hotel (on 3500 South), and the Decker Lake light rail station is about a ten-minute walk north of the hotel. This isn't a 5-star hotel. It's a Sleep Inn. There's nothing wrong with the place, though, and it was a perfectly adequate place to stay for a few nights.

Stayed there 8/11/18 for a concert with my children. Approached by 2 rude and inappropriate gentleman outside the hotel. Evening desk clerk was extremely helpful and courteous. After we returned from concert watched 4 policeman return to their cars. Room smelled. In the morning woke up to men's shoes (complete pair) on the lawn that's filled with cigarette butts. May have good staff but I was genuinely concerned to leave my room at night.

The bed linens and towels were clean, but there was some trash from the previous guest left on the bathroom floor. I'm not sure the shower (shower only in this hotel) was all that clean; it was hard to see in the bathroom because the lightbulb was VERY dark and dim in there. The dim-lightbulb trick always makes me feel like I'm in a very cheap place that doesn't want me to see what they haven't cleaned. Strangely, the inside of the nightstand drawer was really dirty. How in the world does that happen? Ah well. Most annoying was the fact that we arrived for breakfast about 20 minutes before the cutoff time, and only one sad piece of sausage and one egg remained. Clearly, it wasn't going to be replenished. We were traveling through and just needed a place to stop for one night. If we need to be in Salt Lake City again, we'll probably look for someplace else.

We arrived in the late afternoon for our one night stay. The outside appearance was decent and we were greeted by the staff and assigned our room. The room was fairly clean, but had a bit of a deoderizer smell. Not unbearable, though. Shower head was fair and bathroom was fairly clean. Better than some, for sure. The bed was the sad part of this stay. It really needs to be trashed and a new one that two people can sleep in that wont roll us to the middle. Not a comfy sleep. I don't think I could stay here again.

I was looking around for hotels in West Valley, because my boyfriend and I were going to an event at the USANA Amphitheater. This was the cheapest and closest hotel I could find. The front desk guy was short and to the point. He got us checked in right away. We went to our room and walked in. The room was cozy. It was clean and organized. I liked the decor. The shower was quirky. The only complaints I have is: the bed was hard as a rock. I barely slept with how hard it was. No sagging. I mind as well have slept on the floor. It’d be the same as the bed. The night stand by the window had a lamp, but no outlet for the lamp to plug into. Only outlet near by was a single by the window for the window unit. They should also have a later breakfast on the weekends, 6-9 is suckie. Other than that, I would stay here again if I had to. It was good for what it was.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. Always asking if they can get you anything or help with food recommendations. The rooms are very small but clean. Here's the but. The parking lot at night is not someplace you want to be. Lots of drugs and "ladies" in action going on. Which does continue into the hotel as you see them coming in and out with different partners several times an evening. A gentleman we spook to said the cops wouldn't even come out here for the problem anymore. The action doesn't seem to bother the "real" customers for the hotel much that we have noticed. I wouldn't want to stay here with children . I guess it is a matter of choice as to whether or not you can handle the parking lot activities. The hotel is quiet except for road noise from the nearby highways but the hotel itself doesn't seem to have crazy parties or yelling people eat in the halls. Our company chose the hotel and covered our bill for roughly a week. So I can't comment on the price. The beds are okay but not great , pretty much standard stuff. But ours was very clean . Don't know if we would chose to stay again if there is somewhere else available , however it's not a total write off. Excellent food within walking distance.

Stayed here several times. Not too happy with the smoky smell of the place. Might think about redoing interior or replacing carpet. Will be staying over at the country inn from now on, much cozier for the same price.

Needing freezer packs for taking lunch,..I found the staff accomodating, they would swap out my freezer jugs, since the small fridge in room wasn't spaced large enough for freezing a halfGallon jug!! ...Initially issues with AC, but we were moved across the hall, so thankfully, had a pleasant stay summer of 2017. We have plans to go back because of a 3-5 block walk to the UTA train to downtown. The "Decker Lake Dr." address did not work with our GPS; please change to 3440 South 2200 West (zip 84119)

It's hard to find affordable accomodation in Salt Lake City that still matches basic standards concerning cleanliness and comfort. The Sleep Inn probably comes close, with decent value for money. But it's still too expensive compared to what you would pay in other parts of the country. The hotel is located about 15 minutes from downtown Salt Lake, so close enough to the main sights. We had a queen romm, which was not very big. It was a bit of a puzzle to fit all of our suitcases in there, and still find a spot for our baby crib (the hotel didn't have one of their own). The room was clean enough and the wifi was strong. Unfortunately the parking lights did shine into the room, which made it more difficult to sleep (even though we had requested a room that could be darkened as much as possible). We liked the breakfast choices. No elevator. Overall I would certainly recommend the Sleep Inn if you're looking for a decent and affordable place to stay near Salt Lake City. Just don't expect too much either.
