I was dissapointed with this hotel. I was booked here by Delta when my flight connection at SLC didn't make it. The hotel shuttle service was great (runs every 20 minutes!), and I was glad to get to my room quickly. Also, the staff were very personable.
But that was where my positive experience ended. The room had a kind of musty smell like it had once been a smoking room, or maybe because of the cleaners that were used. The carpets were old and had some permanent stains on them. The furniture was old and worn. The bed (I was in a room with two doubles) wasn't very comfortable, and the pillows were terrible (too big, and not comfortable for your neck). The shower was cold for about 10 minutes until it finally warmed up to a tolerable level (still not 'hot' though). I found a broken lanyard on the ground in plain sight, which told me that the cleaners didn't have time to give a thorough look around the room. I also found a big hair in the shower.
All in all, it probably wasn't the worst hotel I've ever stayed in, but I wouldn't reccomend it, given the price point that the Red Lion generally tries to play in the market.
