    • Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities

    They don't tell you online but there is a fee for parking.12 dollars a night. No coffee makers in the room. There were no laundry room available. No free breakfast either. Also, for me, it was difficult to get up from the toilet because it was short and small. The bathroom was very cramped and the tiling job was poorly done.

      The ceiling in the bathroom was crumbling and falling down making it hard to shower. We bought the option with 2 complimentary breakfast and was not told how to go about getting those.

      Homeless people in the parking lot. They were reenacting that gasoline fight scene from Zoolander except with feces and syringes instead of gas. Alright, that's an exaggeration - but SLC is becoming San Francisco pretty quickly. Paid parking. I get that its downtown SLC, but good lord. Somebody took a leak right behind my truck (not an exaggeration) - only know that because it snowed that morning and left a nice yellow pool. My son ran barefoot through the hotel room and his feet turned black. Yuck. There was a round spot of what looked like blood on my bedsheet. Double yuck. I didn't have high expectations as I'm familiar with the area and the age of this hotel. However, this was the grossest experience I've had in a hotel since I was a poor college student. The rooms were supposedly non-smoking but by the smell of the hallways, that is not deterring the classy denizens of the Red Lion hotel. Also, I spotted a german shepard wandering the halls. Not making this up. I thought I heard barking and peaked out my door and spotted the dog. What the hell? It wasn't the lead paint making me dizzy - there was actually a friggin german shepard in this hotel. There was a gaping hole in the shower wall. The toilet was the smallest I've ever seen - but on the plus side, you won't need a Squatty Potty to use this thing. The air vent in the room was rusted and the heater was running about 105 decibels throughout the night. This hotel is a dumpster fire.
