SLC/Sandy motels

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
real quick Q, i'm looking for a motel with cheap rooms that has a shuttle Alta/Bird (or easy access to one) and pickup from the airport. I'm talking a room for under $80. Would the Comfort Inn meet all these requirements? Any other recomendations? I'm just staying one night before the rest of my crew flys out and we settle in for the week on Wasatch Blvd.

fyi- it is gonna DUMP the first weekend of February.

we used to stay at the comfort, but now i describe it as a "dump". we stay at La Quinta, but don't know about buses, how about ExStAm? Call them.

Best Western Executive Inn. Same street as the LaQuinta. There are a TON of cheaper places if you only have to suck it up for one night.

Is that the one in Sandy? Next to the Wendy's?

Yeah, filling up on waffles and cereal there isn't all wrong.

I don't know about shuttles to and from the best western. I've always gotten a car. It's hard to eat anything more exciting than Wendy's there if you don't have a car.

How long does it take to get from Sandy to the Canyons? We were going to go at Sundance time, and all the resort spots are full or a million bucks.

Not too long.. 30-40 minutes? Sandy is 30-40 minutes away from everything

Extended Stay, Sandy or Midvale. About $250 a week with taxes. They have a kitchen so you can save on food.

I just stayed in the super8 in Midvale. With Superpass special, room was about $50 per night. They're very courteous and helpful, the bus is right across the street and they picked me up from the airport.
HIghly recommended.
Just google super8 and midvale for contacts.
Alta and Snowbird rule!

If you want the best deal in Park City, check out the Chateau Apres:

http://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Rev...City_Utah.html

Rooms are like $60-80 night and it's basically 20 yards from the lift (or the trail leading down to the town lift I think?) It's a sweet location.

It is, however, a dump of monumental proportions. The whole place is of such dry, creaky wood that you get the impression it'll spontanious combust any moment. The bathroom door is partially blocked by the bed.. heh.. You litterally can not turn around in the shower (there's not even enough room for a soap dish!). They do have free cereal and stuff in the morning.

My buddies and like to do a cheap Utah weekend every year and we stayed at the Chateau once. I try not to be too much of a hotel snob, but I had to draw a line in the snow.

It is, however, THE cheapest room with the best location in Park City.

InTown Suites in Midvail on 7500S about $160 a WEEK, not a DAY.

you get a very small kitchenette with a microwave,small fridge, and
stovetop grill. Silverware and pans unfortunately are about 20 additional.
Or you can BYO. On the Cottonwoods ski bus line.
Near Trax for runs downtown. Free wireless internet. Crawling distance
to Hooters !

also a Motel6 in Midvale at the interstate & 7500S.
Near Dennys and bus route to ski areas.

Try Carvers Right across the street (entrees $18-$25.) They cook a mean steak (so my wife says, I don't really do steaks). Within a 10 min walk, there's also Magrath's fish house, Olive Garden (don't even think about it Fri/Sat night), Mimi's (think of an upscale applebee's), a chinese place in the mall (sorry, the name escapes me, but it's good), a TGI Fridays, a mexican place and Village Inn (an upscale denny's). In the 5 years I've lived here, I've eaten at all of them except the Olive Garden and TGI Fridays. Carvers would be my first choice with Margath's 2nd and the chinese place 3rd.

Oh yeah, we went to Magrath's once. That was pretty good. I'll have to try Carvers next time I'm there.

My requirements for a ski pad:
1) clean-no creepy crawlers
2) Comfortable bed
3) hot shower

Does the Chateau Apres meet these needs?

I don't give a rat's arse about decor and don't need a lot of space. I figure I'll be skiing my butt off all day and after a few brewskis with the bears I'll be out like a light.

The Chateau will meet those bare bones needs. It is a very convenient location. Close to Main St you can walk to PCMR and close to the bus stop for rides out to the Canyons or Deer Valley. if you are so inclined Lewis Brothers stages runs a Shuttle over to Snowbird and Alta.
post #20 of 20
Thanks Utah. Any idea what the cost fo the shuttle to Alta/SB? It's my first trip out west and I certainly want to ski both of those places.
