“U of U Guest house is the best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

I have stayed at the guest house numerous times for University business and personal pleasure and have always had a wonderful time, great service and a clean room and facility. The free continental breakfast is excellent with 4 hot entrees, oatmeal, pancakes, fresh fruit, yogurt etc. and of course coffee!
The prices are generally some of the best in town as well.

This was my second stay at the Guest House. Love the location; being on the University of Utah campus. The rooms were comfortable and clean. Had a nice breakfast the next morning with a variety of items to choose from. Good value for the money!

My stay at the University Guest House was excellent. It's a less than 5 minute walk from the TRAX station which makes it convenient for getting around the city as well as the airport. The staff was friendly throughout the stay making sure I was comfortable. They provided free shuttle service to and from The Pie, which would have been a 15-20 minute walk in the cold damp weather. The room was great as well. It was clean, the bed and pillows were very comfortable. The location is also great being on campus and close to the medical center. Overall, a great stay where I was able to relax and rest and cared for by a very friendly staff.

Room Tip: ask for a room with a view of the valley

I'm glad you were able to take advantage of our shuttle. The service is about a year old now and has been very well received.

Located on the University of Utah campus and run by the University. Staff is simply amazing. Good, typical buffet breakfast. Rooms a tad small, nicely furnished, with very comfortable bedding, and very clean. Convenient to all the medical and other University facilities. Great public transportation to downtown. Not five star, but certainly the best lodging value in SLC. You can look forward to staying here!

The University Guest House mainly serves two types of clientele: patients/families of patients at the University hospital, and conference attendees. You could not ask for a better place to stay if you fall into one of these groups. All the conference facilities, and especially the food, were outstanding (a few audio glitches). The rooms are very nicely appointed, the internet is fast, the campus location is quiet and safe, the staff are friendly, etc. There is easy access to the Arboretum, the Museum of Natural History, and hiking/biking/running trails, as well as the TRAX system. The only downside, as many have noted, is that the hotel is not within walking distance of any decent restaurants, so you either need to drive or take TRAX, which is an expensive proposition ($2.50 each way for an adult)

Room Tip: Third floor rooms are quiet

I have stayed at University Guest House for one week for the conference. I gave 5 STARS for this hotel for following reasons.
1* for the price, very reasonable price
2* for the location, Guest House is located near a lot of hospitals and University. You can take Trax to go to center city and airport. Trax station is 5-7 min walk from Guest House.
3* for the service, Free shuttle to near by hospitals, university and restaurants. All staffs are very friendly and helpful.Hotel also provide free Internet access, and gym. Each hotel room has microwave, refrigerator, and coffee machine.
4* for the cleanliness, hotel room is spacious and clean. Beddings are clean and very comfortable.
5* for the food, breakfast is included and it is excellent. There are variety of food to choose. Hotel also provides coffee and tea and fruits... Cookies at lobby through out the day.
I would give 6* if they have restaurants near by. There are no restaurants in walking distance, the closest ones are about 30-40 minute walk. You can order the food for delivery or take the hotel Van to go the restaurants.
