I've stayed at the Homewood Suites on Fort Union Blvd in Midvale. They're comfortable, quiet and close (about 1/2 hour) to both Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons (ie: Solitude, Brighton, and Snowbird/Alta). It's not Mom-n-Pop but they have a living room area with a fireplace (gas), pull-out queen (or double). Also there's a kitchen with a full-size fridge, sink, and stove along with utensils and dishes and a table for 4. Here's their Web Page
if your interested.
