The hotel is very clean, the staff is very helpful and friendly, and the restaurant is pretty good as well. I called for the airport shuttle van and it was there before I got outside. I would stay at Red Lion again.

...it was a great stay. I had an amazing experience many years ago with Red Lion and I always have a soft spot in my heart for their properties. This is smack dab in the center of town which means it's easy to get anywhere. There is a small c-store across the parking lot for snacks...another nice addition. I read...

The hotel was chosen because we were on a budget. Honestly, I did not know how big the street blocks are in the West, so when I booked it, I hoped it would be a little closer to downtown, but with a ten minutes walk it was pretty much ok. We've got a mountains view room, but the windows were...

Dear valeria_vally, I agree, the street blocks here in Salt Lake are big! We are always striving to improve and your comments regarding the deficiencies in your room provide a great learning opportunity for our housekeeping team. Our shuttle team is always running, but I am surprised that your calls to Guest Services never rolled over to our front desk....

Low quality hotel. Rooms have been remodeled, but it's just lipstick on a pig. Bottom line: the staff was nice, but this place a dump. Do yourself a favor and go somewhere else. Red Lion Corporate should be ashamed of this property.

I recently stayed here for one night. I was leaving early the next day to catch a flight, and they don't even charge extra to park for multiple nights!

We had a deal through Priceline; we've usually had very good luck with those but this time it left a bit to be desired. The staff was great; check-in was friendly and smooth. Unfortunately, they had allotted a claustrophobic 1-king room for a family of four--and I do mean claustrophobic. I've seen bigger rooms at Motel 6. I immediately called...

Seriously, this hotel is average at best. The breakfast is awful. Do not have it. No milk, no bread, no fruit, yogurt locked away, no pancake mix. The waiter was rude and had the cheek to expect a tip after no service. I was shocked at how bad it was. And it was $11. My room 910 was also very...

My girls attended a concert in Salt Lake City. The room was not expensive. The beds were very comfortable. There was a balcony and a cute little 50's style restaurant on site. My girls were very pleased with the hotel and the room.

Although the nightly rate was reasonable because of their discount for university patients, it was not worth the cold temp in the room.
