Got stuck here for 5 days on business. Where do I start?! The room was "renovated" but had mold stains and carpet stains throughout. The Bedding was incomplete, meaning there were NO SHEETS! Just a comforter and the mattress on one of the beds in my room. Without turning on the heat, my room reached nearly 90 degrees and I...

Upon check in, we found our sheets to be covered in hair. ot one or two strays, but like someone had slept there. We went to diner while they changed them. In the morning, the coffee pot leaked the water faster than it could brew, which it never did. THey said they would be up to replace it and to...

First, our room smelled of chemicals, whether cleaning or the huge new spackle stuck to the ceiling, not sure. Then, the ceiling outside our room fell down in chunks!! Customer service left much to be desired and the "free shuttle" around town was a joke. Only when there were no airline personnel needing it! Will never stay there again!

Get rid of the noise problem with the central heater and sound proof the room partition door and you got yourself 5 out of 5! This was on of the first places I've stayed that didn't offer complementary breakfast.

Nice hotel. Very friendly service, easy access to downtown and the freeway. Room did not have a couch or overstuffed chair. Bathroom needed repairs but everything was functional. Better than a Super 8 or Motel 6. Excellent breakfast (when reserved on the internet and it is included). Great price.

I was put in three different rooms. All FREEZING from the old wall of windows that need replaced. I could hear the elevators going up and down from all three rooms ALL night. There was body hair and purple wax all over the room. The rooms are NOT FULLY renovated. The bathroom had 1970 yellow gross tile.

After driving from Washington State on our way to the Grand Canyon we decided to stop in Salt Lake City. Our fur baby left us with limited options but Red Lion was very accommodating and even waived the pet fee without us asking. My first impression of the hotel was a good one. It's clean and little lively. The rooms...

Hotel RL offers some beautiful views (not common for downtown hotels). The rooms are clean and the staff are friendly. We stayed here in the summer and the difference in cleanliness from then to now is night and day. Keep up the great work!
