“Oh so nice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012

This was my third stay in the in last two years; and I've enjoyed every visit! Great value, great location, exceptional breakfast, rooms are comfortable and well kept ... I could go on and on. We are from Wisconsin and have stayed here while visiting our son in graduate school. We highly recommend the University Guest House.

Room Tip: Plenty of space. West side rooms have great view of the city (Salt Lake City) and evening sunsets.

The University Guest House & Conference Center is one of the best kept secrets in Salt Lake City/on the University of Utah campus. This has been our 3rd time staying there and as the saying goes, 3's a charm! Consistently comforatble, clean and courteous/helpful staff. It's ideal location gives us the convenience of helping our daughter assimilate into college at the U while also taking advantage of the beautiful surroundings that the area has to offer (ski resorts, downtown SLC, etc.). Great value, breakfast and hospitality.

Room Tip: Have not had a 'bad' room!

I recently stayed at the University Guest House for a conference. The rooms were comfortable and clean and the staff was very helpful with directions, etc. The breakfast was another unexpected bonus compared to most hotels offerings. The price and the view were extra add ons to a great place.

Room Tip: Try to get a view of the valley.

My husband & I stayed here while we were in town for a Red Butte Garden Concert. It was just a few blocks away, we had a great place to park & comfortable room to come back to after the concert--clean room, nice amenities, comfortable bed & linens. So close to the venue & so nice to not have to drive home after a night out. We will definitely be doing this again next time we go see a Utes game or a concert at Red Butte.

Red Butte Garden hosts an awesome lineup of shows each summer. It is good to hear that we can be a part of that experience. I would highly recommend that if you are at the hotel during the summer that you check out these events. Thanks for the great review of our hotel and for mentioning Red Butte. Also football season is just around the corner. GO UTES!

The University Guest House & Conference Center will be our home away from home whenever visiting Salt Lake City in the future. The facility and room were very clean, modernly furnished and had all of the amenities that were needed for our one-week trip. Loved the staff's helpful and positive attitude. Great breakfast options and really appreciated the ice water, Starbuck's coffee and Tazo tea available 24/7. We will highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the Salt Lake valley. Thanks UGH!

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the new wing for an exceptionally clean stay.

I have stayed at the University Guesthouse over a dozen times and it is always a great experience. The rooms are clean and nice, the breakfast is delicious but the staff "ROCKS". They are so friendly and willing to help me out whenever I have a request. I look forward to my stays in Salt Lake.

Thank you for your review. Glad to have you back again and again. I would agree that our staff does "ROCK". Many of them are students and I am amazed at how they balance both work and school. See you again shortly.

I stayed here while my mom was a patient at the Huntsman Cancer Center, the staff at the UGH were both pleasant and professional. The room was always clean, the breakfast in the morning was great, particularly the Starbucks coffee. As a frequent traveler for business I would say that the University Guest House offers services comparable to major chain hotels for a reasonable price. I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend to others.
