“Very Good for Skiing”
Reviewed 27 February 2012

My adult son and I spent a week at the Best Western, skiing at the Cottonwood Canyon resorts.

The hotel itself was clean and well-maintained and offered a good breakfast as well as free wi-fi. The location is very convenient to the ski resorts and is within walking distance of several very good restaurants.

Being that close to the Cottonwood resorts, you're stuck in a very commercial area, shopping mall after shopping mall with no sense of a ski atmosphere. If you stay on the other side of the mountains, in the Park City area, you get the ski atmosphere but also much, much higher prices and, more important, much less challenging skiing.

It was a great value, just what we were looking for.

Room Tip: It would be nicer to have a view of the mountains.

Annual business meeting has me staying at this location. Has been sub-par in the past. This stay was a nice surprise. Remodelel lobby and rooms gives it a fresh feel. Breakfast area now more private. Expanded computer area was needed and is appreciated. Room cleaner and nicely appointed for the price.

We are really excited to see that our guests are happy with the new changes we have made.
The lobby area is much more Guest Friendly now. More space to eat and much more
work area.
Thank you for taking the time to write us such a great review.

This Best Western is great from cleanliness to the breakfast that is served. Its a little pricey but the extra money is well worth it. The beds are very comfortable (my pet peeve) and the area and hallways were quiet. If you like shopping the mall is just across the street (more for my wife).

Our wedding day was Sept 30th we ended up having to stay in town that night. We happened to choose this best western in particular and I would've never had it any other way... The Grand Suite was amazing... totally more than we expected. We totally LOVED the lay out of the room and my wife's favorite part was the mall literally 100 ft away (women.... of course). Breakfast was also a plus.. Was able to surprise my wife with breakfast in the morning. :) (some hotels don't let you take your food into your room). It was an excellent stay... we were very pleased with everything... THANK YOU BEST WESTERN!!

Room Tip: Top floor suites are geat!!

I have been having overnight scrapbooking retreats at the Cottontree Inn for the past several years. The staff is wonderful and very helpful. The rooms are clean and the beds are very comfortable. The breakfast they serve is very good and there is a lot of choices. I love using their facility because I feel like I am at home. They are very accomodating to us. It's always a great experience!

BEST WESTERN PLUS CottonTree, Sandy Utah
We stayed three nights here in October, 2011. It is a 4 story hotel a short distance from Highway 15, but we were not bothered by traffic noise as long as the window remained closed. We had a fourth floor room across from the elevator, but were not disturbed by any noise from it.
We had an average Best Western room with an average size TV. The room did not have a frig or microwave, but we called the front desk and they had a combination frig/micro sent to the room. The air conditioner took a long time to start. We thought it was broken, but it finally started. The maid forgot to leave coffee on the second day.
A full, hot, breakfast is served in the lobby. It was very well done, but a separate room would have been much better. One thing I liked was the fresh pastries. They are very seldom part of the breakfasts served at hotels of this kind. Two sizes of waffles were offered in addition to eggs and breakfast meats. Four kinds of coffee were available and several types of juices. Lots of fresh fruits were also available.
There was one computer in the lobby for guest use. The Internet connection was horribly slow. One of the desk clerks said they had three new ones on order, but was not sure when they would be installed. He said he was going to “work on” the computer to see if he could correct some of the problems, but it did not improve while we were there. It reminded me of the dial up connection I had on my first computer with four megs of ram. Slooowwww.
Several restaurants are within walking distance of the hotel. We especially liked McGrath’s fish restaurant, which was about a block away. We ate two lunches there and they were both excellent and reasonably priced.
This is a nice place to stay at a reasonable price and not too far from Salt Lake City or the mountain canyons. We were there to see fall tree color and made several trips into the mountains from this location. Driving up to the higher elevations took less than an hour.
