My visit to Salt Lake City was primarily to do genealogy at the family history library, and the North Temple Inn was within good walking distance to the library, as well as restaurants, and shops at The City Creek Center.

Do not book this hotel expecting the Marriot or Hyatt, this is a two star hotel and it shows. However on that note for the cheap price you pay and the somewhat outdated rooms the location is Prime and makes it worth the stay. All of downtown within a walking distance and the light rail is a near by walk... More

Would never stay here again, it was really cheap $72 but I should have realized what I was getting as this is a city. I felt nervous in my room and I brought kids so it made that even worse. The bathrooms were disgusting and everything was stained and really outdated. The breakfast was an over crowded joke. But I... More

Comfortable, quiet and clean older motel. Safe neighborhood. Breakfast was just okay. It's location is the selling point. Walking distance to bus and trolley service. Free TRAX service takes you to much of the cities shopping and medical facilities. About 5 city blocks from Temple Square and City Center shopping and dining. We walked from the LDS Conference Center to... More

The price was right, the room was clean, and staff polite and helpful. However, the location isn't the best, and overall the hotel has a "run down" feel to it--could use new carpet and some repairs. I know Howard Johnson's is a landmark in Salt Lake City--it's been there nearly all my life--but if it's going to maintain the image... More

Stayed there four nights and the staff was friendly, but there was no microwave, no fridge, and the ice machine didn't work. It was downtown so sort of close to some ammonites I wouldn't stay there again.

Great value, sorry to see them leave wyndham. Pleasant very helpful staff. Safe area to walk in the evening. Only thing, when a guest checks out, the front desk person should put the phone on hold or at least acknowledge the customer in front of them. I had to find the manager to check me out while the cab driver... More
