"I recently had the pleasure
of spending time at the Camelot rooming house in Salt Lake City,
I was working on a project for Sarcos a medical and robots research
group at the Univ of Utah. I live in California and travel a lot,
so the idea of spending months in a hotel just wasn't what I wanted.
I had never looked for a rooming house but knowing I was going to
be near the Univ I thought I would just give it a try.
While looking through craigslist.com I found a posting for the Camelot,
I bounced a few e-mails back and forth with Arthur. After a few
more phone calls I thought why not, so I moved in and I have to
say it turned out better then I had hoped. The people were friendly
the location could not have been better, within a few blocks there
is just about everything you could want, shopping, restaurants,
parks, light rail, a "GREAT" city library, and my favorite
two excellent coffee bars. If you have never been Salt Lake like
me the city is very walker and transit friendly, which makes the
location of the Camelot excellent. I had driven a car out but could
have done without it.
That other stuff you might want to know Arthur the owner lives on
site and is a very up-front guy, it's the kind of place your mother
would approve of.
I would recommended this anyone needing to spend time in Salt Lake,
I know that if he has space Arthur will rent rooms for a few days
I think he is listed in the Hostel Guild.

place looks fantastic. It is a little scary to have to look for
a place to stay over the Internet, and your website does a great
job of showing what you have to offer. Thanks for the quick response."

that never were and say 'why not?" ~George Bernard
a man does only what is required of him, he is a slave.
If a man does more than is required of him, he is a
free man" ~Chinese Proverb~
is unwise to pay too much, but it is unwise to pay too
little. When you pay too much, you loose a little money;
that is all. When you pay too little you sometimes lose
everything. Because the thing you bought was incapable
of doing the thing you bought it to do. The common law
of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting
a lot. It cannot be done. If you deal with the lowest
bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you
run and if you do that, you will have enough to pay
for something better." John Ruskin 1819 - 1900
