“Safety issues...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

We stayed at this hotel for 3 days...long enough to see that there were always unsavory characters lurking about. One night two guys were parked beside my car and I didn't feel like it was safe to go out there. I told the lady at the front desk, all she said was " I'll get Brian to check it out" when I asked later what she found out she had not had "Brian" go check yet. We were even warned about this place from a policeman.But we didn't want to go to the trouble of changing hotels.The only good thing about this place were the beds and the location. The weren't enough outlets, no refrigerator and although we were there three days no one ever cleaned the room or brought new clean towels. I would not stay here again.

TemperPedic beds are a plus.
Their system was down when I checked in. The guy at the front desk asked me to sit and wait.
The elevator makes noises that made me think it was going to fall apart on me. The room had water stains on the ceiling. bathroom was small. The shower had cracked tiles and it did not look clean. Little to no counter space.
There is no mini fridge! The dresser is the tv stand and my drawers would not close right.
This place needs outlets! I had to charge my phone in the bathroom.
The room is dimly lit and the desk is just a small round table placed in an awkward place. The chairs had stains on them too.
I've stayed a a lot of places within this price range and this is definitely on the lower end.
Last but not least, the walls are thin!
I can hear the people next door and they were just having a simple conversation.
I do not suggest staying here. A motel 6 would have the same quality and it would be $20 cheaper.

This is a very reasonably priced motel in a very good location in the heart of SLC. The rooms are relatively large, very clean, and very comfortable. The staff are nice. We needed a night in SLC before flying out and this was a very good choice.

Room Tip: They will match the price on Bookings.com which knocks about $15 off the price quoted at the desk.

I stayed here while attending a conference at the Salt Palace. The location is within walking distance of downtown SLC. Rooms were clean. Bathroom was quite small and the tile floor was freezing, but it was an inexpensive option for travelers. Beds are tempurpedic and very comfy. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Free continental breakfast was as expected. Fresh donuts, muffins, toast, bagels, cream cheese, oatmeal, apples, oranges, banana, OJ, coffee and hot chocolate. Perfect for a light breakfast.

A motel remodeled in attractive art-deco style to make it more of an inn. Good sized rooms. Close to downtown, sports venues, public transportation, and good restaurants. Free parking. Basic continental breakfast. Decently priced. A good bet if you'd rather spend your money on food, drink, and entertainmant than a place to sleep.

I went to Salt Lake on business and stayed in the Metropolitan for 2 nights. It was clean. They had Tempurpedic beds that worked well for my bad back, the rooms were small, but just fine for a lone traveler. The furnishings were way retro, but they matched and were in good condition. The staff at the desk were friendly and accommodating. The motel was only a block away from Trax. The downtown location was perfect with easy access to local restaurants and downtown. It was quiet and a comfortable stay. The breakfast they offer was not much more than muffins, donuts and orange juice which was kind of a downer though. Then again, I wasn't really there for the breakfast.

Room Tip: The rooms that back up to the gas station next door may be a bit bright. The lights are always on at...

Stayed here while at a show at the convention centre. Breakfast choice is very poor, rooms still have CRT televisions & a serious lack of sockets - I ended up charging my phone in the bathroom & stretching to it the bedside table to be my alarm.
On the plus side, the staff were very friendly & helpful, the location is great for the convention centre & I found the tempurpedic mattresses very comfortable.
