Lastly, this is a full home. It is likely you will see other guests and housemates. We do our best to accommodate everyone. As such we have among the lowest rates in town. I will say that our home is not the Ritz. If you expect that then you will be disappointed. We've been told we have a hostel feel. This is the feel we are going for and these are the types of guests we hope to attract. If you are going to be rude or critical of our home then please book at a hotel. If you are going to be down to earth, friendly, respectful and communicative then we do our best to do the same and we would love to host you :)
If you need an additional twin bed let me know a week prior to your arrival and I can put it in the room
We have coded entry. Door code will be provided upon booking. Feel free to park on the street but watch for any no parking signs. There is also one little parking drive in front of the house. Alternatively you may park in our backyard lot. Access is to the south of the house adjacent to us and then around back.
Interaction with Guests
We are open and friendly to interact with guests. Engage with us and we are likely to engage back :) Please know that we are not traveling as you are. We are here living our day to day. If we seem busy it is not because we are ignoring you or unfriendly, but likely just distracted. We will always try our best to say hi.
We are so close to everything. I love being able to walk everywhere I need to go.
We are right by the library station for Trax. There are major bus lines and urban bicycle shares nearby as well!
Other Things to Note
Also, we are pet friendly!
Deadbolts to the house are to be locked upon entry and exit.

Mutual respect is all that is asked. Let us know if we can accommodate you in any way.
House specifics are located in the kitchen.
Very artistic bedroom with its own style,enjoyed talk to Brent for a little,he's very easygoing and open to people,great host with great farm!i would definitely recommend young people for staying here!
My friend and I loved our stay here! Brent recommended cool restaurants for us to go to and the eggs in the morning hit the spot. The colorful room is eclectic and magical. I could have spent my whole trip exploring the book collection. I recommend this place to anyone!
Brent was awesome! He's a really genuine guy that makes you feel right at home. He has really cool pets and the fresh eggs are perfect!
Location was great - very close to the center of the city. Love the urban garden idea, and the kitty was really cute - he came and said hello in the morning!
Great place! Super cool room and Brent was really accommodating. I definitely recommend this place if you're traveling to SLC
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in the colorful room. It's definitely an eclectic place. I never did have the pleasure of meeting the host in person, but his other guests, especially the two resident cats, were very friendly.
I enjoyed my stay at Brent's house in Salt Lake! The house was peaceful and quiet, and I was greeted by two friendly kitties. I saw Brent the morning I left and enjoyed our conversation. I felt very comfortable staying there and would recommend the Colorful Room for anyone looking for an affordable and comfortable (not fancy) place to crash while in Salt Lake. Thank you, Brent, I'll be back!
