I was really impressed on how I felt the employees would watch out for us, but not suspiciously. - unknown

"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! Sleep on the plane before and after and just try to cat nap during the overnight for safety anywhere. I have overnighted in airports 15ish times in my life. SLC was as good as it gets. Good facilities, 24 hour food and coffee, free internet, and no one questioned me or made me feel acquired about over nighting as other airports do."
