My family stayed here for three nights while in town for my oldest daughter's wedding. We stayed in a suite with two rooms (open to each other) and a small kitchen area (sink, counter, cupboards, small fridge, and microwave). We brought paper goods, but there were also some plates, silverware, and knives in the cupboards for use. The room also... More

Nice and clean and updated in a 1970's kind of way. This place has character; the people were super friendly and helpful; and was a good value. The location is very convenient for access to the major attractions in Salt Lake City.

I was torn on the rating. I think for the very reasonable price, the place has a lot to offer. An included cook-to-order breakfast was a nice break from the standard "free" breakfast at chains. I discovered that I could order off menu as well; a very agreeable kitchen. Comparing the hotel to European hotel seems accurate. My "view" was... More

I really liked this hotel when I stayed last year, so I selected it again for this trip to Salt Lake City and I'm glad I did. This year, I upgraded to a suite which had 2 separate bedrooms, a larger bathroom, and a small wet-bar area with a mini refrigerator/freezer and microwave. The same wonderful, friendly, genuine staff work... More

I spent four days in Salt Lake City, Utah, in late May, at the Mormon Church’s Family History Library, doing research on my family tree. While there, I stayed at the Carlton Hotel, which is within walking distance of the library, the Mormon Church campus, and a new shopping/restaurant development. The Carlton is a small, older facility that has character... More

The best recommendation I can make is by giving the Carlton my repeat business for more than a dozen years! The stable staff makes returning to the Carlton like going home and seeing old friends. My group of friends stay here each March and enjoy a hearty breakfast before stopping at nearby Utah Ski for discount lift tickets and then... More

What a great find! Like many affordable hotels on Europe, it is small, clean, and efficient. Narrow stairways and whitewashed walls and the more economical rooms have no view. Perfect! I'm here in SLC to visit the city, not hang out in the room! The location is one block from the square, next to the Alta Club. Breakfast is included... More

I'm very late with this review but we stayed here last May 2013. We were a party of four, myself and my husband, sister in law and cousin. We stayed first for 2 nights and then returned another night. We had a very nice little suite , 2 bedrooms, a kitchen with eating area and bathroom. We asked for an... More

The hotel was clean we enjoyed cooked to order breakfast each day with the room. Great Dalit rate even better weekly rate. They have a van and driver to take you back and forth every day to the research library. Everyone was friendly and helpful . Only draw back was their free wifi didn't work. I was never able to...
