Has anyone stayed recently at Laquinta west Salt Lake City? Heard pros and cons. Please advise.
Looking at the map, this location is in West Valley City not Salt Lake City. It's an ethnically diverse, blue collar suburb and also the second largest city in Utah. You're probably about 15-20 minute drive into downtown SLC depending on traffic. The area has a lot of commercial chain stores off the busy streets but also some of the best Mexican and various Asian food around.
If you're just passing through, it might be fine for a night. If you're planning on spending time in Salt Lake, I would stay somewhere in Salt Lake City proper. Downtown is the location we usually recommend. It's near mass transit. There are plenty of restaurants, bars, live music, performing arts, shopping, and cultural locations of interest all within reasonable walking distance.
Thank you for the info. After research we decided against it. Again, much thanks.
