(Salt Lake City-AP) -- You shouldn't have much trouble finding a room in Utah.

Nightly occupancy rates in Utah hotels last month was just 62-point-six percent. That's up a bit from May, but still well below last June, when nearly 70 percent of the rooms were filled.

Salt Lake County hotels were even more empty last month -- down about nine percent from the previous June.

Room rates are getting cheaper as a result.

Average cost for a room for the night dropped four dollars last month in Salt Lake County. Average price is seventy bucks.
