I travel on business VERY frequently, and while I won't say I’m a snob, I demand clean and functional; I also check trip advisor religiously. I dismissed the reviews regarding the chlorine smell assuming that some people are just too sensitive, but I can tell you this, there is zero exaggeration in this regard. The hotel reeks of chlorine. The hallways smell.. odd, the room and linens smell of chlorine, the tap water smells of it.. everything just stinks. Just to confirm I’m not insane, my coworker from the UK felt the exact same way. It’s extremely distracting to try to sleep when your pillow smells like chemicals. If you think it’s related to pool proximity you’d be mistaken, I was on the 3rd floor.
The room, while likely clean, just doesn’t give you that “clean” feeling. The hotel is old and needs renovation, but it’s one of those situations where you think it’s probably clean, but you don’t really want to walk barefoot anywhere, either.
Ogden is not a very big place, and expectations must be lowered somewhat accordingly, however, be warned that should you happen upon, say, an FBLA convention, you are royally screwed on the noise factor. The second night in hundreds of teenagers appeared and the noise was out of control. You can hear people speaking in normal voice volume through the door without any problem. I finally took sleeping pills to get past it.
The convention is what forced me from the number one and two options for Ogden, the Marriot and Hampton Inn. There is also a Holiday Inn Express across the parking lot that looks newer and cleaner (though the proximity to the highway is concerning). My coworker switched hotels to the Hampton after my departure and had no problems.
About the only good thing at this hotel was the internet – fast wireless without having to jump through hoops to connect. The hotel staff was pleasant enough as well – especially considering that I had all sorts of trouble with my room keys (10-12 tries to unlock the door). Beyond that, skip this place until they renovate, it’s a dive.
