This is a budget motel. Don’t expect bellhop service, etc.
The owners have done some cosmetic fixing up and the building is in pretty good repair except for the stairs, which they appeared to be getting ready to spruce up also. Otherwise, not bad.
Our room on the second floor had been recently painted, carpeted and caulked, etc., so it was more than fine considering the low price. There was a two-cup coffee maker, hair dryer and ironing board in the room. Separate heating/ac unit in each room. There is a TV with several cable channels. Also an alarm clock, of course.
The desk clerks were polite.
The bathroom was clean. No complaints about the maid service. The beds were made each day and new towels, etc. provided.
The free breakfast was about as basic as can be–coffee, a choice of cereal with paper bowls and plastic spoons, some white bread, a toaster, butter, jelly, and bananas. This is not a complaint. That’s about all I ever have at home anyway. I wasn’t expecting a sit-down with eggs and bacon–I am just pointing out what you get.
I had read about bedbugs at other SLC hotels (including a well-known high rate property), so I checked. The mattresses in our room were new and there were no signs of bedbugs. So no worries about that, at least in the room we had. (You may laugh at this, but this is becoming a big problem in the hotel industry, even at “luxury” hotels. You should educate yourself on this subject and check your hotel beds, no matter where you are staying)!
Convenient to downtown and easy access to the Interstate highways and ski resorts. But there is nothing much around this property in the way of restaurants, parks or tourist attractions.
There is a small pool, but we were there in early spring.
There is a computer in the lobby with internet access, which sometimes did not have a connection.
We were skiing at different resorts, so only needed a place to crash. We’ll probably opt for something a bit nicer next time, but this place is fine for a budget trip. I should point out that there were several construction workers staying there (no doubt attracted by the low rates) and the alarm clocks started going off at 5:00 a.m. each morning, then another at say 5:15, another at 5:30, etc. I guess the walls are not real thick.
Again, there is no way around this being a budget property. But it was nicer than what I expected.
