No sleep seats anymore...

by web-administrator (September, 2016)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) Hi there, just wanted to notify you that Salt Lake City, Utah, does not have any laying areas with open seats.. between the seats in all terminals, which are quite big but have giant iron bars between them. Sleeping in a laying position is not possible there.

Salt Lake City

by web-administrator (May, 2016)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) Smoking too close to entry/exit doors....stinks!! Also not enough carts for heavy luggage throughout terminals. No golf cart assist available so these carts are helpful.

Salt Lake City

by web-administrator (March, 2016)


Where: Airside
Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) There is lots of good food and plenty of spaces to pass out on the floor. The staff are overall courteous, and people mind their own business (at least while airside). The chairs aren't overly comfy, but I've come to expect that from airport.

Bring a blanket

by web-administrator (February, 2016)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) Slept over night in salt lake to avoid paying for a hotel for 6 hours of sleep. Stayed in February and I think they turn the heat off at night. Be sure to bring a blanket or buy one before shops close. No issues from security cleaning staff was loud and definitely penetrated my bubble. We did not scope very well but slept near a terminal desk under security cameras. If I were to do it again I would find a spot closer to the main building.

Not bad place to get stuck

by web-administrator (December, 2015)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review by NYVTmaplesyrup) Probably as good as an overnight can be. Airport is officially open 24 hours so no one questioned me or thought it was weird. There was one place open 24 hours for food/coffee/water. I stayed in the gate area within security. Free wifi. No real problems, of course the cleaners need to clean overnight so i just moved when i saw those machines making their way towards me. Moving around is a necessity overnight as you need to move when the loud cleaning crew is near you so they can clean that space but also because its loud and annoying.

Haven behind A3

by web-administrator (January, 2015)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review by QueenBun) Jet lagged so opted for the airport rather than a hotel. Behind A3 are 3 three seater armless benches that can serve as footrests or as beds. One is squarely behind the service counter and well hidden. One serves a bank of seats with an outlet next to it. Cleaning crew came through at 2:45 a.m. There is very soft CNN in the background, the occasional announcement about keeping track of your luggage, and bathrooms almost directly across. Add the airport's free WiFi and it's home sweet home! Friendly staff!

Jackpot!

by hs98 (April, 2015)


Reason for Stay: Checking in and had to wait
Where: Airside
Pros: Found something new!
Cons: I live in this city, so I'll never have to sleep here.


At the very end of concourse B is an entire 'room' of armrestless seating. Like 0 people could easily sleep there. And ample outlets.

missed my flight, slept in airport overnight till morning

by ski (March, 2014)


Reason for Stay: No Money
Pros: really not too bad, staff was all pretty nice, did feel relatively safe
Cons: i prefer to sleep in a hotel


It was my fault, i missed my flight. We were having just way too much fun skiing and i missed my flight. Worth it. Obviously i was tired the next morning and slept the whole way home, but i surivived in the airport. Free internet and a 24 hour mcdonalds kept me awake. Employees tried to be respectful when cleaning but its loud at times and you may need to relocate. I spent most of my time in the mcdonalds. I spent my time inside the security area as there is more to do and more people around. I would have prefered an airport hotel but had spent alot on my vacation and just roughed it. A pretty nice and large airport.

No Armrest Bench

by hs98 (January, 2014)


Where: Airside
Pros: Padded bench
Cons: Not there long enough for more info


Just something I noticed in passing as we were leaving this airport... There is a three seater bench with no armrests in concourse B near B4 gate, right before the smoking room. Every little bit of info helps right? Also I read the other reviews for SLC before doing this one, and I will check out if there is still a lounge attached to the women's room in terminal 2. Also, the bathrooms are very clean and well kept.

Very nice airport

by effixu (September, 2012)


Reason for Stay: Waiting for for friends or family
Where: Airside
Pros: Clean, lots of outlets
Cons: No baggage storage


I had to wait for friends for more than three hours at the airport, I found it very neat and pleasant. It's a well planned and maintained airport. What pleased me most is they have enough outlets. They even have desks with outlets to use laptop or tablets. However there are two things that bother me. The first is that our friends on a domestic flight arrived to the international terminal. The other is that there is no baggage storage so we had to rent a car for the 12 hours spent at the city.

Fantastic Experience

by csprings (September, 2011)


Reason for Stay: Early flight departure
Where: Airside
Pros: food available 24 hours, airport is open 24 hours and no one questioned me
Cons: tvs were on but a staff member turned the ones near me down w/out me asking


Lets face it sleeping in the airport stinks but SLC was the best experience i have ever had doing it. If you have to overnight do it here. I overnighted at Denver DEN before and it was much worse in almost every way. Its best to just get a few naps in or hang out and sleep on the plane so your luggage is safe. This airport made it pretty easy to kill time compared to other regional hubs like PHX, DEN, or LAX. The staff were all super nice and no one questioned me or woke me up when i taking brief naps. I try to get as much sleep on the planes where its safer and just cat nap or hang out in the overnight with less people around. The airport is open 24 hours and thats known by everyone i came in contact with. Theres flights that leave as late as 1 amish to the east coast and as early as 6am so people started to arrive around 4amish so theres only a short window where you'll be alone and i looked on the screens for gates to be somewhat near people for safety but i felt pretty safe here. I even asked a cop who said sure just watch your luggage but SLC seemed pretty safe and i saw the cops and other employees scan the airport on a regular basis. They do keep the tvs on all night but for over nighting for free that is the least of your problems and common in most airports nowdays. Overall a good experience as good as over nighting can be really be. There are multiple smoking lounges in the terminal no leaving needed and food and coffee IS available 24 hours. Free internet too. Overall a great airport, large Delta hub, very friendly staff for 2011 standards, and spectacular scenery. When over nighting anywhere its important to go in as well rested as possible!

Good for sleeping

by HubTourGuide (August, 2006)


Reason for Stay: Other
Where: Airside


I have spent many hours in SLC when I worked for a regional airline. I'd get sent there for training a lot and also would go through there often when I flew standby. The chairs definitely aren't comfy but there's plenty of little nooks and crannies to curl up in and I have never been harassed by security. Concourse A has a nice sloped area with some out of the way space along the sides. As with all naps in airports, make sure all of your belongs are either securely attached to you or under you. There's also a decent selection of food and the place is kept pretty clean.

24 hour blaring CNN/Safety Warnings

by Westzzzzz (December, 2009)


Reason for Stay: Too cheap for a hotel room
Where: Airside


This was my first and probably last attempt at sleeping in this airport. MY flight was at 6:30 a.m. and I didn't want to get a hotel room nearby (50 for a few hours), so my friends suggested I sleep at the airport. I thought it would be a fun/cool new experience, but it turned out to be awful. They had CNN blaring 24/7, and after midnight ran the same 30 min. shows every hour, punctuated only by safety warnings about my luggage. CNN shows get really annoying about the third time around when it is 3:00 a.m. Also, there was no comfortable sleeping arrangements anywhere. They had the typical chairs with metal armrests, and I tried to sleep on the floor but it was too hard. I tossed and turned and tried different arrangements with my bag, but to no avail. The saving grace was that there was free wifi, which kept me entertained, but no sleep to be had. Also I didn't get hassled by anyone, and I did sleep very well on my flights!

No crew lounge in the men's room

by pep59901 (January, 2010)


Reason for Stay: Connection between flights
Where: Airside


I knew it was too good to be true, but after reading S. Wyllyamz review I had to check out the men's room at the end of the C concourse. There is no 'comfy' lounge there. On the bright side the airport now has free wifi. The signal strength is excellent in the B Concourse.
