Friendly, accommodating staff. Nice remodel. Comfy beds. Great location downtown. Red's Lounge has great breakfast. DirectTV and channel options were great. I am terrible with names, but the woman who checked us in was super friendly!

Hallway molding fell off the wall in several places and remained on the floor for days. My toilet backed up with a single use. Maintenance repaired it, but the toilet backed up again and overflowed. Maintenance again attempted to fix the problem but the toilet overflowed a second time. There were several burnt out lights in the bathroom. Overall, the... More

This hotel held promise but it has seriously disappointed. The rooms were unbearably hot and never could quite cool down, even after my 2nd move to other rooms. The bed was lumpy and sunk in the middle. Pay $10 more a night and choose another hotel.

This use to be a great hotel and is currently being renovated. That's the good news and the bad. Literally had to step over construction mess every time we left or returned. Noisy all day and into early evening. No warning when we booked or checked in. The reduced price of $84/night should be the tip off. Often couldn't catch... More

A rat ran from under my bed into the television stand across my room at 11:30 pm. I called the front desk and told them. They asked if I wanted to move rooms like this is a normal occurrence. I packed up all of my belongings since i had been staying there for 4 days already. I had to bring... More

It was great meeting you prior to check out and discussing your stay. Like you, we were horrified that a mouse was sharing your room but relieved we could accommodate a room move. We do hope the compensation we offered was well received, and we certainly understand the early departure. Nevertheless, we hope you decide to return on another visit... More

The Red Lion Hotel is a very comfortable hotel situated within walking distance of the downtown area of Slat Lake City. The hotel employees are very friendly and helpful. Our room was quiet and clean and had a beautiful view of the area. I would definitely stay there again if I returned to Salt Lake City.
