Front desk is in temporary set up stage and they have a few self service kiosks installed but not ready to be used. Stayed at room 201 with a king size bed for one night. Room is clean and spacious. Wifi is slow and just acceptable. The major problem is the noisy AC unit. I have to turn it off... More

the RL is in the process of changing the lobby to a live entertainment lobby who likes to check into a hotel with loud music playing. They updated a lot of the rooms but did it very cheaply. The wifi is terrible some rooms you can not get signal they don't seem to care.

Front desk check in is a temporary set up and seems a little disorganized with new staff being used. They have recently renovated the lobby and will be moving to a self serve kiosk system for check in (not sure how convenient that will be for people who like a face to face transaction. Shuttle bus will pick up and... More

I really wish I could recommend this hotel but after staying here several times over the course of several years, I just can't. The location in the heart of downtown Salt Lake is great. The rooms have recently been "remodeled", and by that I mean some newer fixtures have been added to make this aging building seem less outdated. They... More

Having checked into our room at the Red Lion in Salt Lake, (big comfortable room), we were surprised to have another guest enter the room with their electronic key. Apparently they had been given the wrong room keys by reception. No big deal for us but we then received a call from reception to apologize & offer a free dinner... More

Nice hotel, great location. Walked to Temple Square in 10-15 minutes. Hotel was clean and comfortable, quiet even though it was busy. Would gladly go back! All the amenities are available, restaurants nearby, gas station right there, easy access back to the highway. Great spot, nice hotel--great combination!

Hotel needs to retrain their cleaning staff on what's clean toothpaste on facets, hair in supposedly clean beds, dusty, brown spots on bathroom ceiling that drip when they get damp from shower, can't check in at 3 cause rooms aren't clean yet but no cleaning staff in sight. Pay good money for motel 6 quality! Not to mention the homeless... More
