asking for a no smoking room and getting one to sleep in is another story at E cono Lodge, North Temple. I checked in on 6th to find a room heavily disguised as a non smoking room. Even the mattress smelled like smoke, rug definitely. Curtain was soaked in the smell of smoke. Even then I had to sign a... More

We booked this as we were on a budget and it was close to the city! We didn't check any reviews! Let me just say we now check TripAdvisor reviews for every hotel now. The room stank really bad of the stuff they use to cover up cigarette smoke. The other patrons were long term renters and all seemed to... More

My 18-year old daughter and her college roommates stayed at the Econ Lodge on North Temple in Salt Lake City. Just after 11:00 pm they were startled from sleep by a telephone call purportedly from the Front Desk agent who told her that all the data for their registration was lost and they needed to have her credit card number...

This is the most disgusting hotel I have ever stayed at! The sheets had urine stains on one bed and body hair on the other (picked the lesser of 2 evils), after an 11 hour travel day was exhausted and needed to sleep. Had stayed there in the past but never again. Upon getting up in the morning there was... More

We were late getting in to Salt Lake City and it was raining. We were tired so we stopped. It was clean in the room BUT the breakfast room was terrible. Poor food with bitter coffee. Parking lot was dirty. Lots of big trucks. Chairs in lobby were soiled. NO ECONO. LODGE FOR US. AGAIN.

After an arduous day of mishaps on the part of our airline (Delta) and several missed connections, the airline decided to put us up here for the night (though I'm not sure what we did to deserve it). We arrived by taxi at 3 a.m. and as soon as we exited the cab we were approached by drug addicts for... More

Even the guy at the front desk felt bad about the service, the cleanliness etc. He actually lowered our bill, so low it was inexpensive and was there for a convention and everything affordable sold out.There were 4 of us, yet couldn't get 4 towels. Everything was old, dirty. I did notice they were remodeling some rooms, so if you... More

Kinda old and run down. VERY VERY BAD AREA!!! Prostitution and loud fighting, drugs, etc. I give them 3 stars because of the helpful staff, they were really friendly and accommodating. This place really needs some upgrades but I've been to nicer hotels with rude staff and made their rating like 1 star to me.

When I checked in, I went to my room and found a sleeping person in the room. (Do you know how scary that is?) They gave me a second room and someone tried to open the door (thank God for the latch). My toilet did not flush. My TV went out. My key did not work the second night. I... More
