“Greta Location; Great Price!”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

We stayed here one night an found this hotel to be very centrally located, and of excellent value. The room was large, well-appointed (refrigerator, microwave, too) and clean. They have an excellent shuttle to the airport, which is included in the room cost. We also were very pleased with the staff; they were friendly and very helpful.

Room Tip: Some rooms have better views of the city or the mountains, but they come at a higher price.

We stayed at Red Lion last week and had a good time. Close to temple square and easy enough to get to all attractions and restaraunts. Every was very friendly and breakfast buffet was inexpensive and tasty. There is a bar and "reds" kinda like a 50's diner. Food looked good but we went out every night. Only thing bad I could say about this hotel is that it needs to be updated. Our bed was comfortable and at first glance was very nice but then you noticed things like the ceiling was falling in and little hairs stuck to walls. Oh, and Internet wasn't working at all, which I heard lots of guests complaining about. Bed clean and very comfortable.. Slept well.

We stayed in this hotel in October. The beds were fine, the room clean. However, there was room for improvement in service. I called in early afternoon to request someone come to check the thermostat because it did not seem to be cooling. No one ever came to check it. A little later in the afternoon I called housekeeping to request a couple more items for the bathroom. No one ever showed up. I have had better service than this at cheaper hotels. Many of the cheaper hotels have more than just one packet of coffee available in the room, have more than just two wash cloths, more than just one chair in the room, and have both a refrigerator and microwave.

Dear Valued Guest
Thank you for taking the time to comment on your recent stay at Red Lion Salt Lake Downtown. We are happy to hear that you rested comfortably during your visit but pained to learn that we missed a few simple and reasonable requests, and for this we deeply apologize. We enjoy tending to our guests needs and providing extra coffee and other amenities—shame on us for missing this opportunity to delight you! Please also accept our apology for neglecting to fix the thermostat and any discomfort our oversight caused. It’s difficult to tell from your comments if you had trouble with the refrigerator and microwave, a standard amenity in all of our rooms. It is my hope that these devices were working properly. We will learn from your feedback, and your words will go far in our continued efforts to ensure that our guests have a wonderful experience here at our hotel. Our only hope is that you will give us another try and enjoy a much improved stay. Have a wonderful day, and we hope to see you again in the near future.

We stayed one night before flying home at the end of our vacation. Nice size, clean room. Even though the hotel was down down, parking was ample and free. The front desk pointed us to a couple restaurants a short walk away. No breakfast included with the reservation- the diner in the hotel was expensive and the food was ok.

Overall I was pleased, the bed was comfy and the big flat screen was nice. It was a little older and could have looked better for the price. There was no conditioner (just shampoo) which i thought was odd. Breakfast was good, lots of hot food and options. Also great location.

Stayed at this hotel as part of a tour party. Firstly, several of the group had room infestations!! Secondly, the breakfast was very poor and was not kept stocked, so had to ask for items, which when they finally arrived were cold, not worth the money. The member of staff on breakfast duty was surly and spoke very poor english.

Dear Valued Guest,
Thank you for taking the time to comment about your recent stay. We greatly appreciate knowing how your visit went as it helps us improve our service offering. We couldn’t help notice that some members of your tour group encountered a few Box Elder Beetles during their stay. This small, harmless beetle appears for a short interval during the autumn and sometimes seeks shelter from the cold. They are not welcome at our hotel, and our professional pest control service has taken care of this rare problem. I am happy to infer from your message that you were spared any encounters with this beetle. On a separate note, please accept our deepest apology for our delay in restocking our Roaring Start Breakfast Buffet and for not welcoming your requests with eagerness and a smile. You certainly deserved better. To correct this oversight, we have shared your comments with our staff, and they are committed to make the necessary improvements. We wish you a wonderful day and do hope that you will give us another try on your next visit to Salt Lake City.

Room was nice enough.
Breakfast was uninspiring with bossy staff who spoke little English. Not worth the money.
There is a free trolley bus within walking distance which takes you up hill into the centre. Ask at Reception for directions. Coming back, it is down hill all the way so a pleasant walk after an evening meal.
