5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2012

Because of problems with our luggage we had to spend an extra two nights in this small and extremely friendly hotel. All of the staff went out of their way to be of assisstance and we can't thank them enough.
The room we had was enormous with two queen sized beds, a kitchenette and bathroom. There was a TV and phone in the room and internet was freely available in the lobby. On top of this was a free cooked breakfast which was excellent.
The hotel is within walking distance of the City Creek shopping mall and within 1 1/2 blocks of the Temple area

Great location for any person with reason to be in downtown SLC of course especially Temple Square and other LDS sites. Neighborhood is fine, not run down or bums bothering you on the street. The size of the very clean room I stayed in was modest about the same as a Comfort Inn but not the corporate sterility of the chain motels. The Carlton Hotel is with the last of the independents so spend your money there. Included cooked to order breakfast was great. Staff very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.

The hotel is Nice and Clean but it is very basic. We stayed in the suite, rm 116. It was a king bed, tv, a little kitchenette with refrig and microwave and sink. The bathroom was little and you have to step up into the bathroom, but it was really clean. The people and everything was nice and simple. I do agree with others that it feels like a step back in time to an old ma and pa 1960's hotel with modern amenidities.
The location is great. A 1 1/2 blocks from the TRAX (light rail train) which is free in the downtown area. Close to Temple Square and Creek Center shopping plaza is 1/2 block away.

This hotel is conveniently located near Temple Square, and within walking distance of many sites and the lovely gardens and grounds associated with the Temple. It is also close to public transportation. Because the hotel isn't part of a chain, it has character and the staff take personal interest in insuring a comfortable stay and in answering any questions that guests might have.

This hotel is a block or so from Temple Square, the City Creek shopping center, and the free public transportation. It's small and charming, and it has its own parking garage (for free). The breakfast, also included in the price, was a good breakfast of eggs, pancakes, waffles, breakfast meats, fruit, and so forth. The rooms were large and clean.

We stayed at the Carlton in june 2010. We were very pleased with the friendly staff. The hotel is situated near Temple Square what was very interesting for us.
The rooms are not luxurious but clean and that's very important. Internet in the lobby. We enjoyed the typical American breakfast!
We certainly can recommend this hotel!

Since the first time I've stayed at the Carlton, it has become my favorite place to stay when visiting Salt Lake City. They really take care of their guests by offering a family atmosphere. There are many great amenities for a small hotel. The breakfasts are also great! Portions are more than generous. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
