This hotel was not a place to take kids. Nothing for them to do - when I booked the room I searched for hotels with pools. The pool is seasonal so I stayed one night then canceled the other two nights. Would not stay or refer friends

I made a cross country drive and decided to spend a little more for a hotel this night due to the following day being exceptionally longer on the road. Check-in was great, the staff members were very friendly. Parking here is strange, with several little parking lots. Lots felt very sketchy and I spent the evening peeking out the window now and then and feeling uneasy with my car being there. The hotel itself was old looking and a bit run down. I needed a pet room but I had stayed at several hotels at this point and their pet rooms were wonderful. The room itself wasn't terrible, nice laminate wood floors with a lovely rug, comfortable beds and pillows, nice mural on the one wall. However, the glass doors to the balcony had duct tape on them, walls had marks on them, and the lamp shade looked like someone spilled red kool-aid all over it. My friends pillow had hair on it but she just ended up using another. My biggest complaint was the bathroom -- I was embarrassed for the hotel. The water in the shower drained so painfully slow that after a short shower the water was past your ankles. The toilet seat was peeling away and looked disgusting. The ceiling was peeling and looked like they were dealing with mold. The door to the bathroom wouldn't stay shut. They made a solid attempt at trying to clean the bathroom but it was absolutely horrid. Salt Lake City was beautiful but this hotel was definitely not anything worth the amount that we paid for it. I would not recommend.

Walking into lobby could not find front desk, happened to hear & see a man talking to someone who was working a computer at a temporary set up. This person was the front desk. Never greeted us or looked up. Had to ask for map of area & places to eat. Rug in our room was dirty with hair & crumbs. Had to ask maid twice to vacuum rug. Was not her room but agreed to do it. Bathroom walls were rough looking. Towels & linens were clean. Bed was comfortable.

When you went to the ice machine you passed where they have staged the trash for removal. this being at 8 pm. The shuttles for the hotel take up all the parking in front of the hotel as well as the drop off points making the guests park in the back of the hotel to get registered.
