I was in two different rooms due to problem with the TV. The first room needed updating, deep cleaning, and a curtain on the window. The second room was beautiful but the bathroom needed deep cleaning. The breakfast on day 1 was minimal, then on day 2 it was great. Internet was non-existent in upstairs room but great in the parlor. The staff is friendly. I would stay here again, especially because they gave me a 25% off coupon for my next stay.

Don't waste your money

Posted Aug 25, 2014
Pros: The staff was nice.
Cons: Don't rent that basement room.
Location: Temple Square, capital
I decided to stay here for a 2 day stay in the Salt Lake City area because on the web site it looked charming. Many of the other hotels in the area were full due to a convention. It is very difficult to find their parking lot which must be used due to the restrictions on parking in the area. The staff was very nice and helpful, but the accommodations were awful. The upkeep on the building is sketchy. Our room was down a very narrow set of stairs in what must have been a garage or basement; it smelled musty. The ceiling was extremely low; I bruised my hand just by trying to swat an insect. The room itself was obviously an attempt at rustic/old time "charming". It failed miserably. The most dangerous item, however, was the bathtub/shower. There was an enormous whirlpool tub placed up a step with a hand-held shower. The side of the tub was almost 12 inches after the step up. The shower was broken down and without any place to affix it so you had to either hold it or lay it down in the tub at which point it would start to spray around the room. As a B & B I expected some sort of nice breakfast--I was wrong. There was a ham quiche (I cannot eat pork), some sort of cobbler, strawberry yoghurt(allergic to strawberries) and some muffins that looked like they came from Costco. There were cookies available in the evening at the front desk. I was not happy with my stay.

This Hotel had the charm, but disappointing.

Posted Oct 10, 2013
Pros: The staff was very accommodating and nice. The breakfast was good.
Cons: Fix the leaking faucets and let guests know how small the rooms are.
Location: All of SLC is at your disposal and there are lots of things to do within driving distance.
The Hotel had a lot of charm, until you went inside your room The rooms were extremely small and the bathrooms very inadequate. We changed room because the toilet continued to run in the first room. The next room was even smaller and the bathtub faucets leaked. There was no shower curtain in either room and a handheld sprayer. No place to plug in a hairdryer. Televisions were extremely small. We were so uncomfortable that we only stayed one night and left the next morning. We ended up paying for both nights, even though we only stayed the one night. Overpriced for what we got.

A worthy alternative

Posted Jan 24, 2012
Pros: Quite and friendly
Location: Lovely neighborhood
A comfortable alternative to the chain hotels. About the same distance to the downtown core as the big hotels, but the walk is through a lovely neighborhood rather than along busy downtown streets. The sign in the B&B says, "Arrive as guests, leave as friends." They succeeded!

Beautiful B&B

Posted Aug 30, 2008
We enjoyed our 1-night stay at Armstrong Mansion. Our only complaint was the lack of a shower in our room. The whirlpool was too difficult for us to get in and out of. The rooms are beautifully decorated and the breakfast was outstanding.
