“handy but lacking”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

this is the second time we stayed at this location and in
the eight years since our last visit it has gone down hill.
there use to be snacks for the guest, no more. the breakfast was
really nothing and the rooms are only basic. the only good thing
its handy to temple square for a days activity

Room Tip: stay away from the pool noise

The outside looked a little sketchy but once we checked in it was decent inside. The lobby wasn't inviting but overall our room was okay. Stayed two nights and didn't have any major issues. The bed wasn't the best, it wasn't dirty or anything, just a little uncomfortable. The tub drain was a little clogged and the shower walls weren't cleaned very well. Otherwise the room was spacious and the TV had a lot of channels.

The pool wasn't the cleanest. The first night it seemed okay but the second night it was dirtier. There were a few leaves and things floating in the water. It wasn't terrible but definitely needed to be cleaned. The breakfast was okay, not much. There were signs all over the area stating how many of each item you could take. We took food back to our room, there weren't very many tables, maybe five or six, and the entire breakfast area was pretty cramped. Most of the people in there were fighting over the toaster. The food counters were in a tiny corner.

The location was great. It wasn't too hard to find. It's downtown by a lot of restaurants within walking distance. We were visiting places both north and south of the city so this central location was nice. The price was great, less than $45/night.

Enjoyed my stay last week of June 2014. All team members I interacted with were of valuable assistance in meeting my needs during my stay. The hotel was quiet allowing for restful sleep. My room did not have a fridge. Front desk team graciously allowed me to utilize the fridge in the lobby area. This will be my hotel of choice for my next visit to SLC for business at the Salt Palace convention center. With in walking distance to be able get in a comfortable walk 2 to 3 times per day during my business trip. Light rail 1 block away for ease of travel around downtown if I didn't want to walk. Deli like restaurant next door to hotel. Within walking distance of 2 shopping centers and many scrumpcious restaurants.

No shuttle at airport, flight was late., staff not real knowledgeable, several areas of carpet in room were sticky. I have stayed in worse. Just some tips for better business.
