    We were without a vehicle since we came in on AmTrac, so we were really impressed with the location. Within walking distance to the Temple Square, bus service across the street, it was perfect for us Senior Citizens. The staff was friendly and helpful.

    We thought we had booked a King size bed but was a little disappointed that it was only a Queen size. It was a minor thing so we never complained. I think on re exam of my booking it was considered a single King. We weren't aware of this but as I said it was no big thing.

    Good location for an LDS wedding, only 10 mins from Temple.

    Staff were very friendly, breakfast was excellent value, location was reasonably near to downtown.

    nothing to dislike, it was a perfectly acceptable hotel for the price with warm and friendly staff.

    Cheap and close to Salt Palace, Free WiFie

    Better TV, smelly hall ways

  • Older travelers

    We stayed for 2 nights in Salt Lake city and found the hotel to be comfortable, clean and a central location, staff were friendly and helpful

    Room decor was a little dark but obviously practical

    We booked through Booked.net and the hotel claimed it took up to 24 hours for the online bookings to come through. Given we booked 3 hours before we turned up, they would not check us in to a room when we arrived until "it came through on the system"!! We were told this could be hours! So they asked us to sit in the lobby until it came through! Ridiculous. Fortunately after some waiting they realised it had come through but we wonder what would have happened if by midnight it hadn't come through!

    Great value for money, a very comfortable room and excellent city centre location.

    The breakfast room was too small - we had to stand.

  • Single

    It is close to the convention center, arena and public transportation.

    Old looking inside and out.

    i reserved a King they moved me into a room with 2 doubles calling it an "upgrade" this is not what i paid for. room wasn't clean, staff not friendly. beds rock hard.

  • Family with children
    9.2

    The furnishing were updated. The beds were very comfortable. The AC unit was quiet.

    The evening staff was not as friendly as the other staff members. She seemed more interested in other things. She did check me in but there could have been better clarity given as far as directions to my room and that sort of thing. Experience with other staff was excellent.

    Good location in town, clean, spacious room

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    We were pleased at being so close to the Salt Palace, very quiet and a very good airconditioner.

    The walk in front of the rooms felt tilted and seemed kind of weak,,Heights bother me so I may be to sensitive.

  • Older travelers
    4.2

    The only thing we liked was the lady that checked us in she was very nice, and posibly the location

    Most unconfortable bed ever, pillow was worn out, about 1 inch thick. room was a real pain in the kneck to get to. Breakfast was a joke, the bathroom was tiny
