Great location, bargain price, comfy beds, ice cold ac, would recommend. Rate the customer service experience also, Gitte altered my stay date twice without financial penalty on a nonrefundable/changeable rate due 1000.00to problems with our itinerary.

This hotel is conveniently located for visiting downtown Salt Lake City and has a good price. Our room was very clean and appeared to have been recently painted. However, it lacked some maintenance on the bathroom wallboard. The upstairs exterior carpet had lots of wrinkles and smelled of urine in two stairwells. This needs to be replaced. The breakfast doesn't... More

We booked a room through booking.com while passing through Salt Lake City. We found multiple cockroaches in the room and bedbugs on the sheets. After reporting to the front desk we were assigned another room, which also had bedbugs. We decided to leave the hotel for a different one.

Air conditioning is horrible and does not circulate throughout the room making it very uncomfortable to sleep at night and even be in the hotel room at all. I'm the type of person that likes it to be cooler inside than it is outside in the summer time. 70 degrees should be the standard indoor temp to be comfortable and... More

We booked this hotel because it was cheap. It was gross and we felt unsafe. Sketchy people around. The bathroom was the worst. Molded shower. The water smelt metallic. The best part of staying here was eating at the Red Iquana. Delicious Mexican food.

The only saving grace about this place is that you can get to the Salt Lake International Airport without going to the Freeway. Otherwise, the neighborhood is scary, complete with homeless, hookers and transients. I walked a block to find something to eat and was hit up twice for money, saw a young lady loudly berated and backed down by... More
