I was here on business, working nights at Dugway, so my experience was different than most. However, if you need to sleep from 6am to mid-afternoon, this is a good place to do that. Housekeeping always honored the Do Not Disturb sign, and I rarely heard talking outside my room. I had one of the few rooms with a window facing Main Street; and even rush hour traffic in the morning was barely loud enough to hear in my room. A little light leaked around the room-darkening curtains, but the room was darker than I am used to at home.
My room was very clean when I arrived, including bed and bath linens. The furniture was in good shape, the minifridge worked fine (including the little freezer section), and the bed was just right - not too firm, not too soft.
While the TV would probably handle hi-def, the cable signal was lo-def. The wireless internet was adequate for standard use (signal strong, download speed measured about 10Mbps, upload less than 1Mbps).
I only had a chance to try breakfast one day, but it was better than typical free hotel breakfasts. They have the standard waffle maker, but they also had strawberries and whipped cream, as well as several additional toppings (meant primarily for oatmeal I suppose). So waffle with strawberries, chocolate chips, and whipped cream YUM! They had hot food items as well: breakfast burrito, sausage, home fries. And they had an omelet making station (which the breakfast lady would help you with). Also had pastries, fruit, dry cereals, etc.
The indoor pool looked clean and was somewhat more suited for laps than general playing around. They also had a little fitness room. They kept the pool covered most of the time to reduce the humidity because most of the rooms opened into the pool area (but I assume you could have it uncovered whenever you wanted to swim during posted hours). Due to having to leave for Dugway at 5pm each night, I never was around when the pool was occupied, so I cannot speak to the noise it might generate.
There are some restaurants within walking distance (without crossing any streets). The hotel is located fairly centrally in Tooele, just a couple blocks north of "downtown".
The staff was friendly (but not intrusively) and helpful. less
