We asked for a specific room which we got. I didn't realize that I had booked a different room through Booking.com, but since we had stayed at that hotel previously, we asked for the room we had before. I also didn't realize that the room I had asked for was higher priced but they still gave it to us... Thank... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in mid April 2015. The location provides walking distance access to Temple Square and the Jazz arena. There is a good fast food restaurant directly across the street . This is a former Howard Johnson Express property and it going through some renovation. They offer free airport shuttle service starting at 8:00 am. The... More

The main thing that I do not like about this Inn or similar inns is the vanity area of the room being situated pretty much directly inside the bedroom, better if the vanity was closed off and separated by a door for privacy, and for noise reduction in the mornings or the evenings when someone is running the water and...

I enjoyed my stay at the North Temple Inn. It is in the perfect location for City Creek, Temple Square, public transportation, and the convention center. The hotel is not the top of the line but it doesnt charge top of the line prices. Its an older motel but is very clean. The cleaning staff is very nice, flexible and... More

I am always amazed that the people who give such low ratings some how expect the Marriott for $66 a night. Its not the Marriott but its clean, service was good, and breakfast was more than adequate. I don't need luxurious bathroom. I don't plan on sleeping in it. All in all, I will stay there again the next time... More

My husband and I stayed here for a night before heading to Vegas...the rooms were clean and smelled nice (which was a good thing because we got a pet friendly room and sometimes they can have an odor)..the beds were VERY comfy...the price was good..($80 and that includes the $15 pet fee)..the neighborhood was very nice and full of many...

A bargain for the price. Exceeded my expectations. Don't pre judge. Better than it initially appears from the exterior. Seems to be popular with retired travellers. Also, I heard that if you are travelling for a hospital visit, the hospital can get you a room for as low as $46. Could be a rumour, but seemed legit.

This is a very basic vintage 1960's hotel. It was safe and clean but: Sheets were like tissue, Blankets were like paper towels. The bathroom door only opened to 45 degrees before you hit the shower curtain. The bathroom is about as small as it can get. Internet access is iffy. This is especially annoying when trying to do on-line... More

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
