Very good location, it is within walking distance to stores & some attractions.I was able to walk to the Temple Square from the hotel which is about one mile distance . There's a food mart by the gas station right next to the hotel where you can buy snacks & drinks .Service is good, very clean, the only drawback is...

Room and building were dated. Parking lot was kind of scary, and I was a little concerned for the safety of my car and things. But, service was great and room was clean. We checked in late and all went smoothly.

Convenient location, but a very noisy hotel both inside and outside. Very busy with groups and conventions. Beds comfortable and rooms clean, but service is slow. Probably would not choose to stay here again.

We stayed here as part of a group on a Titan tour of the National Parks. We were in Room 226 and the French windows were so dirty you could hardly see out of them . Everything else was good, comfortable beds and a reasonably stocked hospitality tray, but no tea. Centrally located so very handy to eat out and...

We just completed an extremely disappointing stay at the Red Lion Hotel in Downtown Salt Lake City. We were off to a bad start from the very beginning when one front desk staff member was occupied checking in a large group, while the other, Kim, studiously ignored us while answering multiple phone calls. In my experience with customer service, we...

Room was large and clean. Bathroom was small but had a great shower. Television had only a few channels and free wifi was just ok. Location was close to the temple. We didn't eat in the hotel so can't comment on food

Great clean place. All staff are welcoming. If you have long stay take quarters if you plan to wash clothes. Don't have the breakfast, it is repetitive and not so nice. . If you really want great views I recommend you ask for a mountain veiw. Overall I would go back.

Excellent ratio price/service in this hotel. Conveniently located close to airport but close enough for exploring Temple Square. Friendly staff. Restaurant could improve a little. Pricy for a diner. Breakfast was definitely way too expensive.

This hotel is away from the main city centre, with fair sized clean rooms. The breakfast was average, oh, what I would have given for a full English! Air con was good in the room, but it felt like a blast of winter in the main corridors.
