Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MrBr8y Not bad, but improvements could make it even better
First, I have to give credit to any hotel that provides a free hot breakfast. This hotel generally provides free hot eggs, sausage or bacon, biscuits and gravy, toast and even pancakes if you want. They have cereal for those who want a cold breakfast and probably the best cinnamon buns I have tasted in a LONG time. I mean, they are REALLY good. I was tempted to have one every morning.
I also have to disclose that I stayed for a month for business, so my review might be more critical because I had time to really experience the hotel. The staff is kind and accommodating and I really only have three suggestions for improvements.
I stayed in a room that was adjacent to another room, separated by a locked door. The door wasn't really soundproof and I could hear them speaking and at times playing the radio, so it wasn't really relaxing and I was also hesitant to turn up my TV louder because I didn't want them to be bothered either. So soundproofing those doors that separate rooms would be an improvement. If you stay here, I would recommend getting a room that is not connected by a door to another room.
The second suggestion would be to fix the showers. When you pull up the lever to activate the showerhead, there is this awful screeching from the lever and you have to push it down and play with it to get it to quiet. Not the best experience when you get up at 6 a.m. to get ready for the day. I know my room wasn't the only one with that problem, as I could hear adjacent rooms and their levers screaming at them when they took a shower. Kinda made me laugh. The bathtub also seems to be unsupported and creeks and cracks when you move around in the shower. It needs support.
My last suggestion is to find a way to quiet the doors in general. They slam really hard when someone walks out of their room and wake up anyone next door. I know doors in most hotels do this to make sure they close, but there has to be a way to fix those slamming doors. It would add to the relaxation if they could.
Location was great in Layton. Things within walking distance include Barnes & Noble, AMC Theater, Outback Steakhouse, Super Target, a mall, Golden Corral, Panda Express, Sonic, Zupas, and several other eateries.
Overall, it was an average to good stay, but some things could be improved. If you stay here and decide not to get a cinnamon bun for breakfast, you're making a mistake. GET ONE.... and you're welcome.

The room was clean and comfortable. we stayed in the queen family suite...sleeps six. Worked great for my family of six. The hotel was full so the pool was crowded and breakfast was a bit crazy. The staff handle the breakfast rush pretty good

We had an amazing stay. At one point they told us the lobby was a quiet area which seemed a little silly, because it's obviously a gathering area, but all-in-all it was a great stay.

I am been living at the Layton Holiday Inn Express since September 2013, and I can tell you that the staff is friendly and courteous and has made my stay very enjoyable. They recently upgrade the furniture and replaced the carpeting in the rooms. I highly recommend this Hotel

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Thom1 Price of room
I found the price to be high considering the room we were in. The room had a smell by the sink area that seem to be someone smoking. The toilet was too low if you have any kind of back and leg problems.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Noisy room Adequate Stay. Not sure I would pick this hotel again.
The bathroom area needed some care and upkeep. The rest of the room was adequate. The breakfast had no fresh fruit until asked and only bananas after that. It would have been nice to have some more variety.

It was so nice to lay down in the big jetted tub and relax.
But we did encounter a few problems with our room not being cleaned and restocked and not having a hot breakfast during the the time frame they said they would have it.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Breezzy Noisy and gross bathtub
For the most part the staff was really nice and friendly. We stayed in a room with a tub. Water kept on coming back out the drain, it was nasty to know that somebody's used bath water was coming into our bathtub. Needless to say it was really gross and so we did not get to use the tub. When we told someone they said they would fix it after we checked out. That they had had the problem in the past. It was really frustrating, we payed the extra money to stay in the nicer room with the tub and in the end could have gone with the cheaper one. The hotel was very noisy as well. Between the party above us and the bathtub continuously filling with sewer and draining, sleeping was impossible. I would have to think about staying at this hotel again the staff was fantastic, however, if I did stay again I would definitely request a room on the top floor.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by capnbru Jacuzzi room blaas
I paid for a Jacuzzi room and while soaking in the tub I could hear the tub in the room above me being filled. I don’t know if it was because that guest had the tub too full or if they were draining the tub, but bubbles and tub water from that guest’s tub started flushing into my tub through the overflow drain. I got out of the tub and tried to drain it, but it wouldn’t drain. I was quite disappointed that I had paid for a room with a Jacuzzi tub but couldn’t use it unless I wanted to share water with an unknown guest above me.
The room and other amenities were nice and helped in making a relaxing atmosphere.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mrs. Brown Very satisfied with our recent stay!
I stayed at this location with my daughter and niece for my daughter's birthday. The woman who checked us in was very friendly and attentive. She was very nice to my girls as well. My kids loved the complimentary milk and cookies. Our room was very clean and had comfortable beds. We were impressed by the number of t.v. stations offered. We also loved breakfast the next morning, everything was fresh and tasted great.

The internet was very slow and I needed it for work. Could not access company email. The staff, especially Stacy, tried their hardest to accomodate me but it was beyond their control. I asked for a quiet room, but I got the one closest to the freeway. The ice machine on my floor wouldn't work.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Amulech Pleasant Stay
As usual, the accommodations were comfortable and more than fulfilled our expectations. The front desk manager that checked us in Saturday afternoon was very helpful and I appreciated that she helped us find a room that would work for me and my family.
The only issue that I have is with the night manager that replaced the one from the afternoon. We returned to our room around midnight and spent time setting up the beds for our kids and preparing them to go to sleep. They were worn out from the days' activities and didn't waste any time getting to bed. My younger son plugged in his Nintendo DS under the table in the room and when he came up, bumped his head hard enough to require a band aid. When my wife went to the front desk to get the band aid, the manager felt it necessary to mention that he wasn't surprised to see her since he could hear a lot of "roughhousing" coming from our room, which was right above where he was. How rude! No one was jumping around making any noise. Perhaps it was us moving our luggage around but we especially don't need the manager telling us what he thinks is going on in our room!
Other than that, as I mentioned, our stay was pleasant.

Overall nice. Had room on North side where the view was another hotel about 30 feet away so felt that I couldn't open curtains. The furniture was a bit threadbare and the entry tile looked kind of grimy. Overall clean and an average hotel stay - nothing that wowed me.

It was enjoyable at this hotel because of the staff and hot breakfasts in the mornings. Our room was nice and clean. However, I didn't care for the sink being separated from the bathroom, and being right by the entry door.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kingray Friendly Staff
My overall stay was pretty good. I was however a little disappointed in a few things. The TV channel guide was completely inaccurate to the point some of the local channels (CBS) were not even available. When you turned on the light/exhaust fan switch in the bathroom the exhaust fan made a loud grinding sound. The refrigerator in the room made a ticking sound like a time bomb. When I took a shower the bathtub felt like the floor underneath was about to give way and it squeaked so much I'm sure the people in the room below thought I was going to fall through the floor into their bathroom. Even with all these issues I would still recommend this hotel because of the comfortable beds, friendly staff, nice views and pleasant atmosphere.

I would like to thank Sandy for helping me get into a room early. I got into town earlier than I thought and she found me a room so I could get in and start working.
Also enjoyed the Manager's get together each evening.
