Little disappointed in the size of the room. For $198 a night I would have expected much more. We were in a corner room by the stairs which cut into the size of our room. Wouldn't have stayed here if we had any other options, but Salt Lake City was full all over town. Would recommend staying somewhere else. We... More

Three of us stayed at the Red Lion Hotel for 5 night in September 2013. We are planning another visit to Salt Lake City and would have no problem recommending this older hotel. The only draw back for us was that our first room was near an elevator which made a lot of noise. We got our room changed (with... More

This hotel is obviously older, but it was fine and served its purpose. I found it fairly clean, but the windows were quite dirty, as was the curtain: I thought I might even be seeing mildew. It's a no frills place, really, but I can't complain for the price, the free parking and internet ... and it was nice and... More

Have stayed here twice in the last 2 months. This hotel is in need of structural help. The front desk staff is great but the building itself is in need of a face lift. I stayed in a non-refurbished room in SEP and a refurbished room in OCT. Nice furniture upgrades, comfortable desk chairs to allow for extended periods of... More

Stayed the weekend of Oct 18th.... Front counter was nice & helpful.. Main complaint is that it felt dirty from the bugs crawling around..Stink type bugs on the ceiling and all over the liner of the curtain. There were about 15 the first day that we killed. With that...the room felt dirty. The used tampon dispenser laying in the hallway... More

Central location. Good size rooms. Small bathroom. There is a fridge :0) - and coffee maker in the room. But no electric kettle! which is a must for English guests! So please at least have one kettle in store for us who like a good Tea brew! Believe me you cant make proper tea from the coffee peculators! House manager... More

I stayed one night, October 14th, and I will never stay here again. First of all, I had to wait almost 10 mins for the woman at the front desk to help me - she was on her cell phone! Very unprofessional. When I got to my room, the hallway was littered and looked like it hadn't been vaccuumed in... More

Just got back from my trip last week. I must say that the breakfast buffet was indeed roaring. It was a comfortable stay despite minor hiccups. First, we were told that the credit card charge on arrival would be a hold of $20/night, only to learn that my card was immediately charged for the full week's booking plus the hold.... More
