This is a large hotel, popular with large tour groups and situated rather out of town, especially if you are on a tour and don't have a car. The worst part for us was the unbelievably noisy ice machines that drone permanently. They're sited near the lifts in the middle of the 'Y' layout of bedrooms, therefore affecting as many...

Beds were great, good laundry, free internet and friendly staff meant a very pleasant stay in Salt Lake City. It was about a 20 minute walk to Temple Square. Plenty of eateries close by. Close to the light rail service as well.

On our way to Vegas we stayed in Salt Lake City for one night. With Red Lion you're getting good bang for your buck. Very good location, large, comfortable and clean room, average bathroom. We liked it.

We had a long hours of travel straight from London. And when we arrived with a busy noisy mob in the lobby. Everyone is waiting for their rooms.

We were there for a conference. The rooms are clean, the staff was pleasant and the beds were comfortable. Having a refridgerator in the room was great for storing our drinks while we were there.

I just stayed one night at this Red Lion. The room was clean as was the bath. There is a fridge and microwave in the room. However, the fridge freezer was so frosted over that the door wouldn't close. I had to use the hair dryer for 20 mins to get the ice build up melted and removed just to...

Very friendly and helpful staff. Quiet and plenty of hot water. It was further from the convention center than I would have liked. The staff was great about shuttling us to and from the convention. Great for the price- but not in the middle of everything.

We were here as part of a tour group. The hotel is slightly dated, but certainly comfortable. The staff is very good. The shuttle driver took us wherever we needed to go, not just to the airport.

The room was a good size with all we needed, and the beds were comfortable, so it met our needs for a one night stopover very well. Wifi was quite fast as well. The location is good for downtown Salt Lake City and fairly close to Temple Square.
