This is the second time we have stayed at the Econo Lodge Downtown because of its proximity to our favorite restaurant in SLC, the Red Iguana. But as last time, we found problems with the room (chipped bathroom fixtures, missing coffeepot in the coffee machine, stuffy atmosphere due to a very iffy A/C unit). I must say that the shower was excellent, […] however. We gave it a second chance because of the very helpful & friendly staff and had hoped that things would have improved since last year.

Despite the convenience of the location, I will never stay there again. The staff was rude and not helpful. We had to wait an hour past check in time because our room wasn't ready and then we were given the wrong keys. The non smoking rooms smelled very bad and it was hard to get a change of rooms. There was a lot of noise from other guests partying […] outside our room at 3AM. We complained to the staff but nothing was done. A bad and disappointing start to our holiday.

"You get what you paid for"
Hotel was ok. It was what I was expecting, cheap price, cheap place. I found inconvenient the fact that the airport shuttle doesn't work from 11-4pm, since it is the driver break time. Anyway I was still able to get the train, the station is very close by.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not great but the price is OK"
The rooms are OK if you're not spending a lot of time there. Our non-smoking room had been smoked in.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"ok for the cost"
Cheap hotel with pool. Bedding smelt a bit like smoke. Decent breakfast. Neighborhood doesn't look the greatest. Ok for the cost.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel has great prices and is adequateGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I needed a place to stay for two nights. I knew it wasn't gonna be great but it was worse than expected. The room looks ok at first but there's cracks and spots on the toilet, the shower, and walls. The sheets and blankets had holes and the 2nd lock on the door had been ripped right out. Didn't sleep both nights because people were yelling right outside […] my room all night long. There was a tree outside my room that had pants hanging from it. Staff was rude at check in but friendly at check out. Keep looking. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Decent hotel close to the Red Iguana"
The hotel was definitely nothing fancy. I would only recommend this place to friends because it is cheap. Book online to get the best deals, if you walk in they give you their daily rate. The breakfast was a standard continental breakfast, but unlike the Econo Lodge in Omaha this place does not water down their juices or coffees. The first room we got […] assigned to smelled like urine so we requested to be changed to a new room which the receptionist gladly obliged to. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Ok for the cheap price"
Our stay was based on being stuck in SLC due to airline traffic and being on standby. We choose the cheapest room we could find. The shuttle driver was a very lovely and friendly lady. She talked about SLC and gave me some great tips. The front desk guy was nice enough though seemed frazzled. Our room was eh. The cigarette smoke smell was awful, even […] though we requested a non-smoking room. Although it wasn't dirty the smell of the room made it feel unclean. The wake up call I requested was prompt and the morning shuttle driver was just as great as the lady before him. In a pinch this hotel will work but in the future I would rather stay somewhere a little nicer. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I walked in my room and it smelt strongly of urin. I requested to change rooms and the second was just as bad or worse. Needless to say, me and my pregnant wife did not stay there because the cleanliness was so horrible. The service was subpar as well. There was nothing appealing or comfortable about this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Neighborhood rather seedy. Man loitering in truck right outside my room. Bldg 4 ice machine empty, and was hard to find upstairs. Bldg 2 ice machine, far away, had ice. One lamp not plugged in, plug behind bed, hard to re-plug. Room dark. One light out in bath. One lavatory faucet difficult to control; fortunately the other one worked okay. The shower/tub […] faucet did not work and was loose, so i did not take a shower or bath. I was in 402, which is bottom floor of Bldg 4. Hotel is convenient to Salt Lake airport.

"Older hotel that shows its age."
Older motel but room was clean and comfortable. Front desk folks were friendly and helpful in answering questions about the town. Had to put the A/C down to an indicated 60 to get it to cool but that got it down to a comfortable (68 to 70ish) level. The hotel has it's own van service but we did not use it, so we can not comment on the service.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Terrible Maintenance and room service"
Very poor service from the reception especially when called for service. Something as urgent as water not coming from sink took them the whole day to find a person and fix it for us. This effort took me atleast 4-5 phone calls to get it done. This is something not accepted for a room I paid so much.Genuine Expedia guest review
they had no hot water unable to get a discount because I paid throuogh hotel.comGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is easy to navigate to from the freeway, however it is in a shady part of town. We arrived around 8pm on a Saturday night, and there was noise from drunken people in the hotel and parking lot all night. In the morning, there were empty beer bottles and garbage littered everywhere, including on adjacent roof from our second story room. The […] room was not well maintained, including stains, worn out furniture, and holes in the bathroom towels. We tried to take showers but the water was luke warm at best. The free continental breakfast was held in an empty hotel room, which I believe to be questionable in regards to food safety. It was difficult to feel comfortable staying at this hotel.

Desk clerk was a rude old man! Room was filthy...carpet gross! I wouldn't let my grandson's on the floor without shoes. We stayed somewhere else on our trip back through.Genuine Expedia guest review
"You get what you pay for"
Staff was very nice but the hotel needs a major update which is happening soon I have been told. Holes in walls, musty smell. Not enough plug ins for all the utilities. Pool was good but continental breakfast was weak. Packages of donuts and coffee.Genuine Expedia guest review
We rented 2 rooms the first room smelled of mold and mildew but was moderately clean however, the water temperature would switch from hot to cold with no warning. The second room air conditioning was not working. We discovered this at approximately 1130 P.M. in the evening, the desk clerk stated that the computer system was shut down and she could not […] move us but did furnish us with a single speed box fan that only provided minimal air flow when place against an open window, the temperature in the room was well above 95 degrees. The following morning at 6 A.M. we returned to speak to management they stated they would have maintenance fix it immediately. We returned to our room at 330 P.M. the issue was still not fixed. At 430 P.M. we again had to return to the office where we practically had to threaten management with a law suit in order to receive another room. The room we were moved to had a working air conditioning along with a large number of ants, a toilet that clogged when used and as with all the rooms was not cleaned properly. Along with these issues the maids only entered one of our rooms during the 4 day stay. They did not make the beds or clean the bathroom they only restocked the towels in the kids room and did throw away my daughters food that had no appearance of being trash. I would strongly suggest that you not use this motel or if you do, do so at your own risk. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Stains in the carpet. Noisy airconditioner. Was told someone would come to work on it, but never showed.Genuine Expedia guest review
"WHAT A MESS OF A PLACE"
This place was enough to remind me that Salt Lake City can be and should be avoided if possible. On a 14 day trip this had to be the worst place that I have ever stayed in.Genuine Expedia guest review
Took them the third room before we found a decently clean room. In the first room the bathroom was full of hair. The second room had sticky stuff all over the vanity. The third room was clean mite or less. But when they changed rooms we lost our fridge.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The pictures of this hotel are very old. This place is run down and smelly. However, after checking in; I noticed that a jiffy lube was right in the parking lot, so I had my oil changed while I took a shower. After that I took a little walk around the neighborhood. Right across from Econo Lodge is a place even more run down. If you're looking for something […] legal in Washington and Colorado or maybe female companionship, this is where you want to go.

"Ok place to crash for business"
Well I would not recommend a single woman stay here but if you are in pairs it's ok. We ran into some "residents" who were not sober to put it lightly. High traffic, non smoking room smelled of smoke and had burns all over it. Beds are not comfortable. If you just need a cheep place to crash then go for it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Chris is Amazing"
This time we stayed, was much better.The staff ,the one girl in the morning, still had attitude, but the others were fine.Adam made sure to accomodate us and we were able to get into our rooms as they stated, 3pm, not like last time whn it was 4:20pm.We gave them the second chance and felt better.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The price was cheap so you don't get anything special. I could have done without the 'funky' smell in our room (left over smoke mixed with musky man odor). The beds were on the harder side but I slept decent enough. The front desk worker said the pool closed at 10pm after I asked about it. She failed to mention the large "CLOSED BY ORDER OF THE HEALTH […] DEPARTMENT" sign on the gate. There were some shady characters hanging out from the rooms next to us but I am not overly bothered by such 'diversity'. I was given a late check out when I requested it so that is a plus.

It was fine. Hotel staff were great. It was inexpensive, so you get what you pay for in the room, but it was decent. I would stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very loud near the pool"
Didn't recommend this motel. Pool closes at 10PM but till 1AM it was horrible loud at this site. So DO NOT take a room near the pool.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Stunk, dirty, breakfast was stale...just not a place I would stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
This is basically a motel! Hotel is stationed in the ghetto! Rooms are disgusting, especially the bathroom! Stay away!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not clean and uncomfortable."
Its not really downtown. Its just west of the I-15 overpass on Temple. The room had a musty smell and the bed gave me a morning backache. The neighborhood was questionable as some homeless people panhandled in the parking lot. The best part was the famous Red Iguana Mexican restaurant right accross the street. I would not stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
I did like the hotel somewhat, it could have been cleaner but for the price, it was ok.Not a good neighborhood tho, lots of riff raff.Staff was 2 girls and they messed up my reservation and then didn't even try to fix it.Check in was suppose to be 3pm, I had to keep coming back because they kept saying the room wasn't ready yet.I finally got in my room […] at 4:20pm.

"People we met were great"
Overall it was a good experience. The desk associate forgot to notify the driver that was taking us to the airport. We came within seconds of the door being closed and missing the plane. We will probably stay there again but will take the TRAX to the airport. They also forgot the wakeup call. The breakfast was good each morning. Charlie, the van driver, […] did a great job interacting with the guests. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Rooms were not really clean. Breakfast room was too small and knowing that there was a large convention in town, the hotel was not prepared to supply the breakfast.Genuine Expedia guest review
Our stay here was less than exciting, we booked this hotel because of its closeness to Temple Square. Unfortunately our stay was less than pleasurable. We got into town around 4pm and unpon checking into our room we discovered that our room's toilet wasn't working... We went to the front desk and was given a new room with no questions.. a very smooth […] transition. Our new room was very ran down. The bar in the bath room tub fell out of its hole, the beds were hard and lump, and the walls were super thin. We were kept awake all night by load music coming from other rooms and when we called the front desk to see if something could be done, nothing was... atleast nothing changed as far as we could tell :( Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Smokey, dirty, ghetto"
We went to our room to get settled and the door was standing open. Then, the room was a "non-smoking" room, but smelled like a chain smoker was hanging out. When we complained about the strong smoke smell, the hotel staff said "but it's a non-smoking room" and did not offer any resolution or support. The hotel was booked, and therefore no other rooms […] available to change to. Blankets had cigarette holes in them. Walls were splattered with who knows what. Bathroom was dirty. Sink was plugged with garbage and barely drained. We left the next morning smelling like we slept in an ashtray. We will NEVER stay at Econolodge again, and I recommend you don't either. Expedia should ban this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This was terrible. I reserved a non smoking room and wound up smelling like an ash tray the whole next day. I attended the LDS Temple that day and was just a little embarrassed that I smelled like I stomped out my smoke as I walked through the doors. (You can't go to the temple if you smoke) The toilet kicked on and off all night. The comforter was […] torn. The Pillows and the bed were terrible. The People outside never shut up. The breakfast was as crowded fiasco as I have ever been in and I have rode public transit in Russia. No room to get food and if you want a place to sit. Take your own chair. Pay the extra to stay at a nicer hotel in downtown (not hard to do) or stay close to TRAX and ride it in. Never again even if it was Free. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Well first of all the first contact I had with an employee was ok I guess but the rest of the times they didn't even respond to a "good morning or evening or even a hi" and to me that was shocking. I felt like I wasn't even wanted there, horrible professionalism. We got a nonsmoking room but had a hard time getting used to the room because the smell […] of smoke was so strong. The worst thing that happened to me when I was there was when I went to check out. Two employees were talking and I gave them a little room for privacy, but they were talking loud so I could hear them. They were actually just gossiping, and I was the only person standing in line and they made me wait 5-10 minutes till they were done. Then I mentioned I was checking out, so one of them took my room keys and threw them on the desk and continued another conversation with the other employee. They didn't even thank me for the stay or asked me how my stay was or even to hopefully see me visit again. They had no professionalism, customer service, not even common courtesy. I was very shocked with my stay here and cuz I never experienced that at any inn or hotel that I stayed at in my entire life. I would not recommend this place to anyone not even a stranger.

"Price is not always the answer"
I had to cancel my room. The first room they gave me was not clean at all. the second room was not any better at all.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Although the condition of the room itself left a little to be desired, it was clean and we had excellent service from the staff who really went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. We will stay there anytime we are in Salt Lake City in the future and hopefully the room will be updated by thenGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"won't choose again!"
Dirty, needs maintenance, TV didn't work, no hair dryer, gap in door allowing air from outside. ONLY GOOD thing was two outstanding shuttle drivers.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"salt Lake city"
Noisy plumbing, when I mentioned it the counter help acted like I should fix it myself. When I asked if it could be looked at, they had it fixed quickly. When some one turned the water on it would drown out the tv. Very clean, we'll taken care of. Hard to get to, because of trains.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"wifi did not really work"
The Wireless internet signal was not strong enough to work in our room. It went out after about 5 minutes. Booked this place specifically for the wifi connection. Didn't wake up in time to sample the continental breakfast. Room had a fridge and microwave.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wake up several times to check your car."
Not a family place. Rap music and interesting people sitting on your car, sound of washer and dryer all night followed up by yelling from all neighbors, clearly residing there.Genuine Expedia guest review
Horible. On road trips, I don't usually stay in higher end hotels but this one is by far the worst. our non smoking room smells aweful, carpet and tables have big burn marks and neighbor/other tenants are not of highest class by any meansGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Its the one of the cheapest places near downtown. Its location is a little akward being on 1 way street its hard to get in and out of. Might as well stay at motel 6 downtown instead is better location and same facilitiesGenuine Expedia guest review
