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)
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
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.
