Decent hotels in Salt Lake City?

by Pizle

I was looking for info on a fairly inexpensive hotel or motel that's centrally located in the heart of Salt Lake city. It doesn't have to be anything special, hopefully just centrally located. Thanks..

Re: Decent hotels in Salt Lake City?

by Free2Travel

JP,

Having traversed the country at about this time last year, I would recommend just finding hotels as you come into the cities.

As long as you enter on one of the freeways, there are always bill boards. Find THE exit where the cheap hotels are located, get off, and scout for the best price.

Negotiate room price. OK, maybe negotiate is too strong of a word. Ask if they offer a AAA discount? If they will waive the fee for the 2nd person? etc.

As it seems like you already know, the Motel 6 and Super 8 books can be very valuable. We also had a B&B book for North America which was nice when we wanted to go a bit more upscale.

As an aside, it is easy to find decent, cheap accomadations in the heart of Salt Lake City. Jackson is another story, well now that ski season is upon us. Not knowing what your budget is, you might think about skipping it, or stay in Idaho.

Try The Inn at Temple Square.

by karenincalifornia

I agree with Joan - Inn at Temple Square is the best place to stay in Salt Lake City, while still being very reasonable by other cities' standards. It is the only place I will stay in SLC. If you still want to pay less, try Howard Johnson Express at 121 North 300 West. That hotel is also in the heart of the city.

Travel Tips for Salt Lake City

Salt Lake City Tip

by sverige

The mountains...and their moods. They are some of the most beautiful mountains I have ever seen. But they can be angry with a storm or light and cheerful after a new snowfall. they are so beautiful, it is as though they are not real, as if they have been painted there for all to see.

Cold game

by cadiana88

For me, that I use to attend to Futbol (Soccer) games in Argentina, it was a very cold game.
It seems to be more important what occurs in the grades that the basketball game itself.

Everything was in order, but I expected something different.

Salt Lake is of course a Delta...

by cad_fred

Salt Lake is of course a Delta hub so that is always an option; however I often find flights cheaper on other airlines. Also they just rebuilt the freeway for the Olympics and it is easy driving.
If you are going to be just downtown or have prearranged transportation, prearrange for a shuttle service to take you to the hotel. It is much cheaper if you are a small party of one or two. Most taxi fares start at a twenty dollar minimum and a shuttle for one is around six to the downtown area.
I highly recommend a car, one with guts to get up mountains, for traveling around Salt Lake and the surrounding mountains. This is another western town in love with the automobile. They did install a light rail train before the Olympics and are continuing to expand its service, but it is still limited in usefulness to the average tourist.

Train Station

by grandmaR about Rio Grande Cafe

Since we did not have transportation of our own (having flown in and the agency not running to rental cars), we were at the mercy of the locals for meals. We walked somewhere for lunch on the 15th. I don't remember where.

The OSHA Training Institute was not near many places where we could eat. Some of the guys took us various places for lunch. On the 16th, we went to a kind of cafeteria type Mexican place, and I paid $6.20 plus a $2 tip. I don't remember the name of it.

On the 17th we went here to the Rio Grande railway station. I spent $10.10 for my meal. I don't remember what I had. Information and menu from the internet

Temple Square

by sing

Mormon Tabernacle Choir in the Tabernacle- 325 singers in the best acoustical setting.
Mormon Temple- took too many years to build to incredible asthetical beauty.
L.D.S. Conference Center- extremely large facility with fountains and levels of roof overlooking the city accessible at any hour for your strolling pleasure.
