“Good value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014 via mobile

This place is great value for money!! Very friendly staff, rooms are spacious. They have a laundry facility which was handy while traveling. Free parking and free breakfast. Would definitely recommend. It's much cheaper than other hotels in the area.

Clean and tidy rooms. Just a short walk to the free city trains. Pool was nice but spa wasn't working. Outside area could be cleaned up a little. They have a guest washing machine and dryer which was handy for us as we had been on the road for 4 days. I was not happy with the breakfast. No yoghurt, cereal or real milk for coffee. Donuts are not a healthy breakfast option. When we arrived we were greeted by a very friendly employee. The man on duty the next morning was not friendly at all. Good price for a clean room.

This isn't the fanciest hotel. But for the money it was a great stay. The bed was comfortable and the location was perfect. The room was clean and the shower was hot. Decent breakfast. Again it is the bang for the buck you are getting. And the location was perfect for my back and forth to the Salt Lake City convention center. Kudos to the staff and the hotel for making it a nice stay.

If your looking for an inexpensive place to sleep in downtown SLC, the Metropolitan Inn is a great choice. The outside is old looking and needs to be spruced up. The rooms are very small, but my room was about the cleanest motel room I've ever seen. Everything including the window blinds were spotless. The bed was very comfortable and the towels incredibly soft. The man at the front desk was very kind and helpful. The Metropolitan isn't a luxury hotel by any means, but it's a great place to stay for a comfortable night's sleep in a central location. It's less than a10 minute ride to the airport, and 1 block from a TRAX station (mass transit).

clean rooms, comfy tempurpedic mattresses, inexpensive, close to everything in SLC. parking lot is small, so park early for the night. ignore the appearance of old elevators and connecting balconies - once you pass through them, the rooms are actually quite nice

Room Tip: park early overnight - small parking lot

Compared to the slightly dirty and ugly exterior, entering the room was like walking through a portal. Really nice and clean room. I usually don't like the motel style because the rooms get smoky inside too easily, but no problems with smoke inside or outside here. The rooms are pretty small, but I see that as a good thing because the A/C cooled the room really quickly.

The free breakfast was pretty limited - just bread, bagels, coffee, and tea.
