From the website, the Anniversary Inn looked like a great place to stay. Boy was I wrong. The first thing that I thought was weird was that while I was carrying my bride into our room, the hotel manager and her boyfriend were outside my room smoking and drinking like the hotel was a barnyard. I thought that was weird but whatever, it our wedding night. When we walked into the room, my first impression was, "I paid $200 for this?" The room was small and dark, the wallpaper was coming off the wall in places, the furniture was old and outdated, and when you opened the glass door to the shower, the bottom of the door scraped the tile and made a horrible shrieking noise. That's not the bad part though, this is:
As my wife and I began to be intimate ON OUR WEDDING NIGHT, at 12:04 A.M., the phone rings. It was the hotel manager telling us that she was coming to get a "plug-in door bell" from our room. WHAT THE!? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! She interrupted us at midnight, on our wedding night for a plug in door bell? Then when she comes to get the 'doorbell' she hands me a little coupon that gives us ten percent off our stay. Oh thanks, ten percent off a $200 room for INTERRUPTING US ON OUR WEDDING NIGHT.
The hotel management is incompetent, insensitive, and incredibly unprofessional. To add to my frustration, when I called to complain after my stay, the person handling my complaint simply apologized and did not offer any compensation for the managements very inhospitable actions. DO NOT STAY HERE!!
My husband and I found our stay to be a bit disappointing. Being a "B&B" we expected it to be in an older home with character, it lived up to that. The bathroom was luxurious and well worth the cost. However, we chose a newly remodeled room, expecting it to be newish. It was well done, but they did not replace the carpet, which was well worn and kind of gross. Our room was very warm and could not be cooled off through the thermostat. We were told to open a window. We could hear everything going on in the rest of the house and the smoke alarm in our room was beeping for a battery change the whole night.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay and thought the "extra-mile" things that the Inn provided were very nice. But for the money, we may look elswhere when planning another getaway to the beautiful Logan area.
I have always looked forward to staying a night at anniversary inn, ever since I was a kid and they first opened and I took a tour. For 330$ a night, I was expecting something pretty amazing. So my wife got me this as a Christmas present, and I was SO excited about it. So we got there, and she opened up the door, and there it was, the reason she got this room, a pinball machine, how cool, oh.. it's broken? They didn't forewarn you about it? Classy. Pretty cool room though, I don't think they do very good upkeep on it. Some of the wallpaper was peeling off, and while the pool table was cool in the room, there were blue chalk dots from the cues all over the ceiling. Insulation was bad, could hear the people talking, walking, and doing other "activities" upstairs. The mood lighting in the jacuzzi did not work either. You'd expect at that kind of price per night, something amazing, right? The food service was fun, and on time. Comfortable bed. We had fun, but this was very far below my expectation of what anniversary inn was going to be. They could have easily contacted my wife and told her that the pinball machine was not working, and asked if she would like to change dates, or get a full refund. When my wife complained about the broken pinball machine as we checked out, the lady at the front desk said "oh you don't know how hard it is to find someone to repair that". Nice. We will not be returning.
We thought we had found a new favorite hotel BUT low and behold, a MONTH later we received a FALSE charge on our credit card. They accused us of burning holes in their comfortor! I am so completely outraged and am currently seeking legal advice.
There are plenty theme hotels in Utah, find another place to stay! These guys must be hard up for money as they needed to be so dishonest and charge us for something we absolutly did not do.
My wife and I live in Salt Lake, but take the drive up to Logan for the Anniversary Inn a couple of times a year (we get a good discount through my work and there is a day at the beginning of december where you can reserve any room any day of the year for a really good price). It is well worth the drive, especially in the spring and fall when Sardine Canyon and Cache Valley are at their height of beauty.
We've stayed in a handful of the rooms and have loved them all. They just added some new rooms in a building close to the main office and we are making our way through them. I recommend this place to everyone i meet, well not everyone.
We've stayed at one of the Anniversary Inns in Salt Lake a couple of times and the Anniversay Inn in Boise, but the Logan location is the best! Lots of rooms and Logan is just a beautiful college town. I like the selection of rooms that the Logan location has and the service seems to be better there as well.
As the name says, it's mostly for Anniversaries or Honeymoons. Not really for longer stays. Each room is different and priced as such, but I believe that it is worth it.
It is located two blocks East of Main Street on Center so it is pretty easy to find. At the same time, I had driven past it numerous times before without ever noticing that it was there.
Like anything in Logan, it is in the mountains so it is very beautiful. It is also just down the hill from the beautiful LDS Temple there in Logan.
My wife and I really enjoyed our stay there.
