Nearly all of the following hotels offer transportation to the Salt Lake City Airport. Those with the lowest-numbered addresses on West North Temple Street are closest to downtown; these hotels are about a mile from Temple Square and downtown, and are inexpensive options if you're looking for a centrally located place to stay.
Gateway Motel (819 W. North Temple St., 801/533-0603 or 877/388-8311, $40 and up) is a budget hotel on the road to the airport but still quite close to downtown. Moderately priced rooms are available at the Motel 6 Airport (1990 W. North Temple St., 801/364-1053, www.motel6.com , $51 and up), where there's a pool.

North Temple St., 801/363-0062 or 800/877/233-2666, www.econolodge.com , $79 and up) is also convenient to downtown, as it's just west of the I-15 overpass.
