Very nice airport
by effixu (September, 2012)
Reason for Stay: Waiting for for friends or family
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.

Reason for Stay: Early flight departure
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 continued >>

Good for sleeping
by HubTourGuide (August, 2006)
Reason for Stay: Other
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
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 slee continued >>

No crew lounge in the men's room
by pep59901 (January, 2010)
Reason for Stay: Connection between flights
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.
