I stayed here for three nights while moving my son into U of U. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable ... the air conditioner was noisy but by the third night I didn't notice it. The hotel seemed to have plenty of guests but thankfully it was quiet and there was still adequate off-street parking. I enjoyed the convenience... More

Friendly staff. Breakfast was typical with waffles and cereal. The common area and lobby have been updated but the rooms show their age. This is a fine option for accessing downtown but you will have to walk. It's less than a half mile to Temple square and you'll pass tons of shops and restaurants (and homeless folks) on the way....

This place was a pretty nice modern hotel - except when we pulled open the curtains they opened to a window to the corridor instead of actually outside!! They offered a 'laundry' but it was only one washer and drier and it took us almost 3 1/2 hours to do our washing. Shower was good, 8/10.. but the hairdryer was... More

Hi Pretty Good Place! Thanks for the review and for staying with us. Occasionally we have groups in house that tie up the laundry. Sorry for the wait. We definitely should have given you a new hair dryer. hope to see you next time! More

James, the front desk manager, welcomed us and was so friendly and helpful with sightseeing information. He took time to explain directions even though guests were waiting behind us. Lobby is beautiful and spacious. Our room was very large and comfortable with nice furnishings and beautiful made-up beds. Their Hot tub is nice, but a swimming pool would be nicer.... More

Hi Very Pleased! I am very glad you stayed with us and thanks for the review! I will pass you kind words on to James. Sorry we did not have enough outlets. The breakfast is a tough one as occasionally many people show at once and make it very frustrating trying to get some food. I hope to see you... More

We always choose choice hotels when available but this facility quickly became one of our favorites. From being able to check in a little early after driving for several hours, to the wonderful suite room that was a surprise everything was awesome. The room was clean and quiet. The faculty is within walking distance of most anything we wanted to... More

The room is roomy & well appointed, with ample outlets for plugins. The single washer & dryer available for guest use are appreciated and a reason why I booked this room. The breakfast area is spacious. A (long) block from a trolley stop. One problem is that every time I open the door to the room, I am hit with... More

Hello OK stay! Thanks for taking the time to review our hotel. I am glad we had enough outlets for your needs. We try to air out the rooms often but it is more difficult to accomplish during the busy summer season. Some of the AC units are older and occasionally make some noise. I hope you were able to...

Have I ever given five stars to a Comfort Inn? I don't think so. But, this one was in a perfect location downtown, walking distance to lots of restaurants. The rooms were very well outfitted, and the beds were super comfy. And, all this only cost us $100. Can't beat that.

We stayed overnight here whilst on a visit to SLC. The room was comfortable, and I thought the free happy hour with food and drinks was a super bonus. The location is very central to downtown SLC and it is easy walking distance. However my husband had a fall in the shower as the bath mat was missing. He cut... More
