“Lass than adequate.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2011

Spent one night there. Asked for a non-smoking room but the odor was so strong in practically made my eyes water. There must have been a plumbing junction for the whole place in the wall because it made a very loud noise all night. Although it did cover up the loud AC unit in the window! Stay there only if you can sleep through anything.

Room Tip: Go in listen and turn on the AC before committing.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2011

We stayed at the Econo Lodge because of it's proximity to the Salt Palace. It is very conveniently located - about a 10-15 minute walk. The price was very good for the closeness to the venue. The breakfast was totally adequate, although the dining area was a little tight. I'm sure the hotel was sold out due to a large trade show, so most days that might not be a problem. We will definitely stay there again. It's a very basic accomodation, but if you are just using it for a place to sleep, it is fine. I will be staying there again for my next show. The room was clean and staff was nice. The Red (or maybe Blue) Iguana mexican restaurant is right across the street and has decent food - it's always a sure bet for an easy to get to dinner!

We stayed only overnight between train and plane - excellent welcome from the night desk staff, really clean room, great bathroom with a good hot shower, very comfortable large bed. Basic help yourself continental breakfast included. Free transport to the airport available hourly which was excellent.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2011

Went to Utah for a Jazz game on a budget. You do get what you pay for. A no frills stay place to rest your head. The price was very reasonable and was about a 10 minute walk to Energy Solutions to see the game. Clean, pleasant staff, and free breakfast were a plus. The minus, very noisy refrigerator that we unplugged, heater worked but was hard to control, and there is no hair dryer in the room. In the freezing cold, who wants to have wet hair? I always assumed it was something in every hotel. Nope, not this one! I looked and it wasn't listed as an amenity. Would have been nice to have one only because having wet hair in the middle of a freezing cold winter is not good! I would stay there again because of the value, but the fact they don't offer a hair dryer that was necessary in the freezing weather was annoying.

This was one of the nicer Econo Lodge hotels that we've stayed at. The room was a good size and clean. Unfortunately, the toilet did not flush well. There is laundry on site, but there is a large, nice laundromat down the road. Great price for a one night stay in the middle of a long road trip.

We stayed here for one night while awaiting a flight out of Salt Lake City the next morning. We checked in at night and the crowd in and around the lobby was rough, at best. The room was dirty and smelly, the bed cover was old and stained, the carpet was stained, the television did not work at all, and the bathroom sinks both had faucets from the 1970s that were nearly inoperable. The air conditioner worked, but was very loud. The desk clerk was pleasant, but who cares when a place is this gross?
