Was traveling with my dog for first time and needed a place to stay. This facility has two rooms available for pets on the far end ground floor level with a strip of grass nearby. I was worried what we would find... but room was clean and beds OK. Dark colors and miniscule bathroom made it feel worse than it... More

Despite some of the reviews, all of which I carefully read, I found this hotel to be OK for my purpose. I was ridiing Amtrak from Denver which arrived in the evening. Since I had little luggage, I walked about 1 mile from the train station. The train actually arrived early and there was still a little light in the... More

Stayed here for a night in a Queen Bed room. The room was well furnished and clean. linens were very clean. The bathroom was very small. No bathtub just a small shower. The staff were very friendly. Close to the Temple square.

HoJo's are known for needing a little TLC and updating but this hotels seems like it hasn't been updated since the 60's. The elevator is a very unsettling experience. Dingy and broken walls, this is elevator is out of date and desperately needs to be replaced. The rooms are large and very furnished, but the bed, towels and furniture are... More

I needed a hotel for a 4 night stay during a conference in SLC, close to the convention centre. Unfortunately I left booking late and missed the hotels providing accommodation in conjunction with the conference, so wound up here. Reading some earlier reviews caused me great concern, but with first hand experience I think they were unreasonable. The rooms are... More

Made a Travelocity reservation. Desk clerk was surly and unhelpful when hotel was not as promised by Travelocity. The rate to park a car while flying out was double at the desk when I checked in as opposed to the rate promised on Travelocity. The room was dirty (dead June bug in the bathroom) and smelled of antiseptic. Ambulances went... More

I very much enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The key reasons I chose this hotel were: 1) low cost, 2) proximity to Convention Center, 3) free breakfast, 4) free internet, and 5) free airport shuttle - all very important. Also, the hotel staff was very friendly and hospitable, from the GM Mr. McElroy, Front Desk Corinna, and airport shuttle... More
