“A very good place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

The staff are always friendly and helpful, the rooms are nicely apportioned and clean. We stay here often when we drive through, this time we stayed for a couple of days. Close to great shopping and a great assortment of restaurants.

I like how this hotel is on the same acre as a Marriott and Hampton, yet I always stay at this Holiday Inn Express. There is always enough parking and it is really close to the freeway and Sandy Mall. The clerks let us have late check out and we loved the pool at 1AM.

The stay in the hotel was good by when we arrived they were refinishing the parking lot for the first two days and had not made arrangements for guest to park. I had to park in a lot across the street and walk back to the hotel and the staff didn't have any suggestions as to where to park and only told me that they were working the first day and second day of our stay.

This hotel needs some serious housekeeping issues addressed! After checking into our room and unpacking we find the drain in the tub is completely clogged and then starts to back up some hair and black Yuk! After contacting the front desk we are moved to another room where we find pubic hair in the tub and on bathroom floor. Again we are moved to another room which looked fine until we again started to shower and found no hot water. According to the maintenance man the hot water at that end of the hotel (309) comes and goes just wait about 10 minutes. Nice Huh, This is the second time at this hotel and had similar issues the first time. We were asked by the manager to give them a second chance and he would personally inspect the room and make sure it was clean and all items were working but as we saw that didn't happen. The first trip to this hotel (last Labor Day weekend) in our first room we had no air conditioning and it stunk like cigarette smoke smell and the second room was dirty (had not been cleaned yet) and the third had a broken toilet handle to which we had to fix as they were out of rooms because it was a holiday weekend. I think this hotel needs some serious housekeeping and maintenance work. If I had not prepaid I would have left after the first night.

Room Tip: choose another hotel

We stayed here one night on our way to Idaho. The room was clean, the breakfast was delicious and the hotel was quiet. We utilized both the fitness center and the pool area and my only complaint was the temperatures of the pool and spa. The spa was super hot and the pool was pretty cold, especially being an indoor pool. But my kids enjoyed it anyway, even with chattering teeth. Service was excellent and we would not only stay here again, but also highly recommend it. Close to stores, restaurants and fun stuff to do.

I accidentally booked a room at the Ramada Inn in Draper and thought I was booking at the Holiday Inn Express in Sandy. First I went to the Comfort Inn thinking that they had recently changed the name. This was true, howevvvvveerrr.. the desk clerk there said he couldn't help me and sent me to the Holiday Inn Express in Sandy, UT instead. Mind you this was just one big mistake on my part. I thought I had booked with Holiday Inn but had actually booked with Ramada. GET IT~~ I didn't. The clerk at the Holiday Inn Express in Sandy, UT at 3am bent over backwards to make sure I had accommodations even though he didn't have to. The room was over $100 and pets were $10, but the room was PRIMO. It had two, I said TWO big screen TV's one in the desk area where guests can sit and another in the bed area where you sleep and the great air conditioning was.

There were telephones, clocks, 2 TV's, one huge bed and a refrigerator, microwave, ironing board, iron, hair dryer, etc... There was a gym and pool and free breakfast. I think there was a gym...duh. Don't use one much .. ahem.

Excellent service, although I didn't need much of anything. My girlfriend and I went to Lagoon that day and my pet was allowed (Kimmie is a well behaved border collie *purebred*) to stay in the room all day with no questions asked.

The booking fiasco was my fault, but there were a few things that didn't add up. The sign on the door said the room rate was $500 per day. I know that was wrong at least it better have been.. smile. Too soon to know yet until I go through my bank statement online to find out.. ha

Beautiful place to stay in Sandy with easy access and close to many, many banks, fast foods, Pier One Imports, Wal Mart up the street a few blocks. Nice.

Wish they would lower the price a little. Fat chance huh?

Room Tip: The Marriott is really close, and within walking distance. Car dealerships abound around there. Good...

We stayed here one night, on our way to Yellowstone Park. We would definitely stay here again. This is a good hotel to stop at if you want to avoid staying right in the middle of Salt Lake City. It was easy to find (right off the 15, in Sandy), very very clean, hot water excellent, a microwave and fridge in the room. They also offer you free internet access with pc's down in the lobby. There were 2 TV's in the room, one in the standard area just across from the bed and then another one in a seperate sitting area. This was a very quiet hotel and we got a good nights sleep. They do give a senior discount and the price for the two of us was 99.00--you got a lot of room for this amount. There are many restaurants to choose from, all within walking distance or just a very short drive. Interstate access is very close by. No chance of getting lost. Loved our stay here.

Thank you for your feedback on TripAdvisor. Thank you for the kind words and description of our location and local eateries. I was delighted to see that you thought our staff was friendly and that you were comfortable in our newly renovated rooms. I appreciate you noticing that our rooms have microwaves, fridges and two TV's in them, which is better than the average Holiday Inn Express. We take great pride in giving as many varieties as we can. We look forward to you visiting us soon.
