    « Best Western delivers again »

    This hotel and it's staff are amazing. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Salt Lake. I have stayed at this motel for multiple nights over the past 10 years and it's always been a great experience. If you're looking for a nice hot breakfast and super clean rooms, with an amazingly friendly and accommodating staff, this is your place to stay.

    « Nice Place to Stay »

    Our family spent two nights in room 433. It was a nice quiet room at the end of a hall with a view of the beautiful mountains. It's an older hotel but it's been updated so the beds were comfortable and the decor was more modern. The room was a nice size (we used a rollaway bed and it didn't feel cramped). I didn't eat breakfast but my kids said it's the best they've ever had at a hotel. They must rotate some items because the "best bacon ever" was only available one day (the next day it was sausage). They also had cold cereal, bagels, donuts, yogurt, eggs, hashbrowns, etc. The pool was a nice size and the water was warm. It also has a hot tub. The hotel is in a fabulous location. There are several restaurants within walking distance but many more options if you want to drive. It's near the freeway, a mall, the Expo Center, Scheel's, movie theaters, gas stations, car dealerships, etc. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again.

    The people there are very nice and the breakfast is great. The rooms are clean and great for a hotel. The only thing is that you can hear the people above you a little to much. Otherwise I would highly recommend it. There is a great outdoor mall right beside it to.

    This hotel is located with plenty to do within 5 miles Go karts, top golf, bowling and movies. Also easy access to highway for skiing and mountain access as well as passing thru. I will stay here again in the future.

    « Best Western Plus-Cottontree Inn »

    My husband and I traveled to Utah to visit the national and state parks in the Moab area. We flew into and out of Salt Lake City and stayed at the Best Western Cottontree Inn the day we arrived and the night before we left. We found the accommodations clean, modern, and visually attractive. The folks at the front desk were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful and made us feel very welcome. We especially appreciated the advice and information about how to use the Rapid Transit system that took us to downtown Salt Lake City. We even had a hotel shuttle take us to the station and pick us up when we returned. We would highly recommend this hotel and the "new" Best Western (BW) brand to any travelers wanting upscale accommodations at affordable and fair prices.

    « Nice surprise on a long drive home »

    After a long day of driving we always look for a hotel close to the Interstate with restaurants and gas stations close by. Best Western has proven to be a good choice consistently for us, so we stopped for the first time at the Cottontree Inn. The desk staff were friendly and helpful, even taking the time to go through our BW reward points to get the best deal for this stay. Our room was clean and comfortable and the area was quiet for the night. The hot breakfast was a great way to prepare for the next day of driving. We will definitely stay at this hotel on future trips.

    Staff was friendly and the breakfast was great. The Indoor swimming pool was awesome for swimming on a cold day! The pool area was well maintained and very clean. We had lots of fun at the pool. The location was nice and close to the convention center which is why we were staying in the salt lake area. It was close to a lot of good restaurants also!

    Great customer service.I clean houses for a living so I am very picky about cleanliness. our room was VERY CLEAN and modern. we enjoyed the pool and hot tub as well. We could only stay about 6 hours because we were passing thru town so they only charged us for a half day.

    Referred to this Hotel by Skypark Air Terminal FBO at KBTF...corporate rate provided. Hotel is 5 minutes from airport and restaurants are close. Room is spacious with a couch and King Bed. Well maintained and clean. Building is laid out in two story Motel concept and parking all around. Simple breakfast buffet included (some hot food) About 20-30 minute drive to down town Salt Lake.

    « Excellent Service »

    I had stayed at this hotel on a previous business trip. There were some problems with the room, which I stated in the review they sent me after my stay. I was contacted by the General Manager via private email after the review and she offered to comp my room the next time I was in town and told me to contact her directly. I did this the next time I was going to be in town and she set up the room. When we got there everything was very nice. They renewed my faith in their facility and I am a very satisfied customer. This is true Customer Service!

    We have stayed at this motel twice in the last few months. Both stays have been pleasant. The staff has been accommodating. But the best part is that the rooms have been very clean! For me if the room is clean I just feel more comfortable during my stay. We were dividing our time between Salt Lake and the Lehi area and so this location just really fit our purpose.

    « Happy with our stay! »

    My family and I enjoyed our stay. Clean, updated rooms. The staff was professional and friendly. We have stayed here a few times and never had any big complaints. The pool gets busy but was open 24h, which gives adults a chance to relax later when kids have gone to sleep. We will stay again.

    Everything about this hotel was superb from the front desk to the breakfast crew. There was a problem getting our initially assigned room as the elevator was taken down for maintenance. The front desk quickly located us a room right next to the elevator and then moved in. No elevator noise and just steps from the breakfast alcove. Well done.

    « Best hotel in town !! »

    My boyfriend and I came to visit Utah and stayed at Best Westen plus and right from check in everyone was very professional. The hotel is super clean and hospitality was on it and always cleaned our room and Bathroom and gave us plenty of towels . We received a complimentary breakfast every morning . Complimentary coffee all day . We bought food for the room and did not have a toaster for the bread , however we were offered the toaster from downstairs to make our sandwiches so that was very nice ! The front desk made fresh baked cookies for the guests every day which is very sweet to do and offer us ! All an all we had an amazing experience... oh and we had free shuttle service anytime we needed it within a 5 mile radius :) . Thank you to the staff for your amazing hospitality !! We will definitely stay here again .

    The hotel even had ice scrapper for my frosted over jeep windows. Awesome. Was not expecting that but was a wonderful surprise to a cool crisp morning. They think of everything, even for those of us who are used to clean windows from parking in a garage. Thanks again.

    From check in to check out my stay was amazing! Hotel staff was extremely accomodating from the front desk, to cleaning personnel, to the breakfast crew.

    I would love to recommend this hotel, you will find clean comfortable beds and rooms. The breakfast is excellent although the coffee could use a bit of improvement. The fitness room and pool are beautiful. I felt safe, which is important when I travel alone and the location is convenient to nearly anything you'd want to do in Salt Lake City or the ski areas.

    Would 100% recommend this hotel to anyone traveling in the Northern Utah area! The appearance was great and the staffing went above and beyond to ensure my stay was as comfortable as can be! The breakfast the next morning wasn't just your average bagels and toast. They has biscuits and gravy and cereal and eggs and waffles and oatmeal! So many different options and it all tasted amazing! Their pool area is open 24 hours which was perfect after driving through the night, then I was able to sit and relax in the jacuzzi. The room was kept up very well and everything was very clean.

    « Nice Hotel close to South Towne Expo Center »

    This is a nice hotel off the freeway far enough to be quiet, but easily accessible and close to major event centers like the South Towne Expo Center and Rio Tinto Stadium. Room was nice but refrigerator needs to be fixed as it made loud noise all night. Otherwise all OK!

    My company stayed here for the Salt Lake Snowmobile show. It was close to our venue & they gave us a very competitive rate with comp rooms. Good breakfast. Pool & fitness center right next to breakfast so you can keep track of kids & such. Our room smelled a little wierd, but the beds were very comfy. also nice to have 2 tv's in the hotel room so the little ones could watch cartoons & we could be in the other room talking or watching something else.

    « A typically excellent Best Western, with one major exception »

    We stayed one night in Sandy at this Best Western during a trip to Texas for a family emergency. I try to stay at Best Westerns whenever possible, as they are often of excellent quality. But I always check TripAdvisor first, and reviews suggest this is a very good BW. The hotel itself is definitely of excellent quality and the staff is very friendly and responsive. We liked our room and it was very clean. Housekeeping seemed to do an excellent job. However, we have one MAJOR CAVEAT to share: Parking lot security ad noise. We stayed at this BW on a weekend night. As the hotel seemed very full, I was unable to park my vehicle within sight of my room window, which I always try to do. The parking lot was well-lighted, except for the rear area that our room overlooked, so I was OK with the side spot I found under a light. The hotel lot borders a very busy commercial/retail area, which while convenient for shopping, creates a lot of vehicle and pedestrian traffic. As I parked my vehicle at dusk, a young man who was clearly under the influence of something other than happiness came stumbling through the hotel parking lot. He said some unintelligible things to me as I walked my dogs, but kept going. A few minutes later, an open-top, beat-up Jeep filled with various junk and overstuffed trash bags slowly moved out of a neighboring parking lot and into the hotel's, lights off. The guy driving was a bit rough. He avoided me and slowly cruised the parking lot, eventually pulling into one of the few open spots. Not sure of his business there, but it seemed very odd. It was too dark to see where he went, but the Jeep remained parked in the hotel lot for several hours but ended up next to the hotel overnight, the man asleep in the vehicle. Our biggest problem, however, occurred overnight, when we were awakened around midnight by teens partying in the dark rear corner of the hotel lot outside our room's window. They were drinking something in cans, although I could not tell what. I had left the room window open for fresh air until then, but they were too loud and I closed it. I was glad my car wasn't right there, but I assumed other guests' vehicles were being used by the kids for cover. I was able to close the window and go back to sleep, but it bothered me that hotel security cameras had not provided a way for hotel staff to be alerted to this security issue and call local police. No harm came to any cars that I could see -- just noise and mess. I mentioned it to the front desk the next morning, and the woman on duty was very understanding and apologized. It's a concern the hotel should address, and its location in the busy shopping corridor is enough to keep me from using this hotel again, sadly, as it is a very nice property.

    « Loud »

    Could hear every bit of movement in the hallway, like we had no door to our room. We were up half the night, due to the noise level. We did not complain, as it wasn't the staff's fault. In fact, the staff was extremely gracious and friendly, through the entire weekend. The rooms are spacious and clean. My recommendation is to replace the doors with higher quality, insulated quality, and it'd surely eliviate much of the noise issue.

    « Convenient Location »

    Stayed at the Best Western south Sandy CottonTree Inn. It's a very nice hotel that we had driven by many, many times on Auto Mall Drive on the way to Costco. Very convenient location. The breakfast left a little to be desired ? especially for a Best Western Plus. Please more attention to detail. Drain that bacon! The room was in very good order. I would stay here again. They handle a lot of volume here, as they have 4 floors, and they do it quite well.

    Would have probably given a 5 star for value, but we were put in a pet friendly wing after requesting the reverse. Must say that management compensated, but my honey did sneeze the night away. Limited elevator access to some rooms. Would stay there again and that's the bottom line. Shuttle to the airport was a bonus.

    Used the hotel after a flight from London for one night, clean large rooms, helpful staff, breakfast is surprisingly good.

    « Very comfortable room »

    Stayed at the Cottontree inn while passing through. Room was very comfortable, quiet and about average prices for the surrounding area. Check in was quick and easy. Parking wasn't a problem and location was good. The only issue was construction off of the exit of I-15, so getting to the hotel took a few minutes longer then expected.

    « Sure could have been better »

    We stayed for three nights as part of a hiking trip. It is easy to find as there are busy roads on either side, and is a nice looking property. For us, it was a great location for hiking in the Cottonwood Canyons. The room as comfortable for two people and rather clean. The breakfast is fine but don't be fooled by the 6:00am start time. For us, it was always later and a regular said it often was 6:20am. So we were ready to hike and a number of people were ready to go to their construction jobs and sat and waited. The hotel also has room door that will shake you when others slam them (as well as the toilets), and as the pool is a 24 pool, count on loud kids about 11:30pm coming back to the rooms. The staff is fine, if not disinterested in looking up. All things considered it need some improvements.

    « Loved our stay! »

    « It's all about service. »

    My husband had an early morning flight and would arrive at the hotel many hours before check in and before I could get there. I placed a call to the hotel and Teresa did everything she could and when housekeeping arrived, she had them clean a room as soon as it was available. I appreciated her going up and beyond to make our stay as comfortable as possible. He had been up since 2:30 in the morning and enjoyed the hotel's offer of having their free breakfast while he waited.

    « BUGS IN THE ROOM »

    My 11 Month old was bitten by either fleas or bed bugs in the room we stayed in #230 and I do have pictures to prove it. I got a call from the General Manager a couple days after checking out telling me she had given me a full refund on my room and to remove my review from tripadvisor. Which I did.... But I had booked 2 rooms one under the Employee rate and one booked under the Best Western Rewards rate the GM told me they honored my friends reservation with the employee rate However that was not the case. My friend paid cash and paid more than what the Employee rate would of been. I contacted the GM the next day letting her know that if they had honored the Employee rate that they owed her the difference from what she had paid. The GM was super RUDE and said your friend is NOT getting a refund and just hung up on me.

    This motel is the very best Best Western we have ever stayed at and the best value ever received at a Best Western.

    Nice staff, filthy hall rugs- I am allergic, rooms okay but dimly lit. Loved the balcony but it was covered with sticky spills. Expensive for very little.

    We stayed here last year lucky enough to get a balcony room in back. We could open the glass door and enjoy the fresh air with our coffee. It was lovely. Nice size rooms very clean. Staying again this year. Different story. Room still nice and clean but its 116. The closest to the lobby ground floor. I'm exhausted! No way to get a good nights sleep. Everyone thinks it's great to walk the halls in the night talking loud like everyone is deaf. One guy even came out of his room to talk on his phone. I guess his friend on the phone was hard if hearing so he went out to sit in the hall across from our door so that while he was yelling he wouldn't disturb his family. Thanks buddy. I had to go out and ask him to stop. He was surprised that his loudness was bothering anyone for the last 10 minutes. Ok maybe after hubby goes to his business meeting at 7am I can get some sleep. Nope. Room 116 is next to the maids laundry room. When the washers spin the walls vibrate! I'm so tired I'm ready to scream! Yes stay here.......but if they give you room 116 DON'T TAKE IT!!!!!!!

    I came to Sandy to visit family. In the past I have stayed at the Hampton Inn in this same cluster of motels. The better reviews of this place made me decide to try it, and I did find it a bit better. It's more attractive, my room was nicer, the breakfast was a bit better. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It was somewhat noisy on my first three evenings because of quite a few youth soccer teams that were here -- they were noisy in the hallways and in the pool area, and they set off alarms as pranks a few times - but that was a minor annoyance; overall they were nice kids, just full of excess energy.

    « Highly recommend »

    Came to Sandy for my niece's graduation from Roseman university and stayed at BW Auto Mall. Pros: staff are courteous and very friendly from making reservations, special requests, info on shuttle, etc...breakfast is the usual fares and good, coffee and tea are available in lobby 24 hours. Hotel is kept clean and nicely decorated. There are many fast food places and restaurants within walking distance. The mall is also a walking distance but you have to cross a busy street to get across. There is a hotel shuttle that could take you for free around 5 mile radius. Cons: I requested for a room with balcony with mountain view but I got a little ledge that is about 2 feet deep with a view of Wendy's. TIPS: -if not renting a car, shuttle express is available from SLC airport for about $19 excluding tip. -if requesting balcony ask if it is a regular balcony size or a ledge. Highly recommend.

    I stayed at this location for 1 night, and it set the standard for all the Best Western's I stayed at for this trip. Check-in was quick and easy - the staff at the front counter were very friendly and helpful when I had questions. The room was large and clean, no complaints for the washroom and despite being right by the ice maker it was very quiet. The room overlooked the parking lot and Wendy's, but there was a beautiful view of the mountains as well. Wi-Fi signal was strong and remained that way all night, which if you are anything like me, is very important. Breakfast in the morning was probably one of the best continental breakfast's I've ever had - It had many options for a hot breakfast including eggs, bacon, hash browns, oatmeal and waffles (With a toppings bar!) as well as cereal, bread/English muffins to toast, donuts, muffins, etc. I won't hesitate to book here again should I ever be out that way. Excellent experience from check-in to check-out.

    « Ok room value, but breakfast lacking »

    Stayed one night on the second floor. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. Outside noise was minimal, check in was fast and easy, nothing overly grand about it but nothing overly undesirable about it either. The complimentary breakfast was disappointing though. Breakfast hours started at 6am, we went down at 8:30 and it was pretty picked apart. No more eggs and gravy, forks, and the biscuits were dry, shriveled and burnt. The other breakfast alternatives were dry cereal, oatmeal(a few toppings), yogurt(a few toppings provided), fresh fruit, donut/muffin tray (pretty empty as well) and mini waffles. The juice selection was just orange and apple, just a personal preference of mine is to always go with the cranberry juice (can't go wrong there!) and they did not have that option. Overall just an average stay. Location was surrounded with road work which was not ideal to get to via google maps. A mall is close to this location though and plenty of options to go and eat. Gym, pool and spa were open 24 hours which is also noteworthy. Final random advice- In the shower, there is a faint arrow on the handle. Where that arrow is pointing is the determination as to water temperature. Every shower every where you go seems to be different, wanted to save someone the couple of minutes of cold water trying to figure this part out :)

However, I will not stay there again until they update their AC units. For the two times that I stayed there before this last visit, we asked the repair man to come work on the unit. It stays the same temperature no matter what the setting is. It is also EXTREMELY noisy when it kicks on and off. This was the third room that I've stayed in in the last few months and it's AC unit had the same problem. It is to the point that I have to overlook the rest of the things that I love staying at this hotel. As soon as they get new units, I will be back!

    This was a very nice clean hotel with great rooms and amenities. I would definitely stay here again. Breakfast was great and service was great as well. We got the King room with the sofa which had a fridge and sink/bar. The bathroom had a huge tube with upgraded sink and tub.

    « We stayed there for 2.5 weeks! »

    We had an issue with the home we were moving into, so we looked around for a good deal with free breakfast. At check-in I loved Teresa at the front desk! She was always on top of things and answered all my questions. She was always able to re-program more keys (when my kids misplaced them), she was friendly and I always walked away happy that I was there. My 4 kids, husband and I all loved the breakfast -the whole time! We got to know Mary and Aide, the two that do it, and were so impressed with their friendly service and efficiency. There were a lot of people at the hotel a few of the nights and everything was great! We loved the computers in the lobby, the washer/dryers were great, access to wifi, and the pool was clean and well kept. Overall - if you have to live somewhere away from home -- this place was awesome!

    This is an *excellent* facility, in every way: quality of the staff, level of amenities, efficiency, adequacy of facilities, morning breakfast. The attitude of the staff with respect to customer service was especially notable (wish it was like this everywhere else in he US!!). I want to qualify my rating about the location as "average." For me, the location was EXCELLENT, just minutes away from where I needed to be. For others, it might be a bit far from downtown Salt Lake, but in all fairness there is a train station only minutes away. In the future, I will always stay here!! GREAT value for the money at 2X or 3X the price.

    We were broke down over labor day weekend for 4 days, spent the first night at the Extended Stay as we knew it would be a long wait for repairs, bad choice, so we went to Best Western Plus next door and they made our stay very comfortable in spite of the stress. Shopping and restaurants were within walking distance. The breakfast was great, comfortable beds, clean rooms and Teresa the front desk associate was above and beyond kind and helpful. We will stay there again if we are in the area.

    « Cater to customers with pet allergies »

    I always for a pet free room when I stay at a hotel and this hotel moved me to a room that hadn't had pets in it. It is a pet friendly hotel which accommodates the needs of many but they also keep in mind the frequent needs of people to be pet free. The elevators don't have carpet so pet dander wasn't a problem. They were clean and moped and I didn't have any resulting allergic reactions.

    It is a nice place to stay but as a Rewards member they do all they can to get the highest price they can.

    « So disappointing! »

    We had decided to chose this hotel because of the price and location. We have also have had mostly pleasant experiences with BW Hotels. It took the check-in person about 15 minutes to check us in. Although we checked in after 4pm, our original room was not yet ready. The room we did get had a balcony which was a plus, but it overlooked a parking lot so no advantage there. My request for a quiet room was not honored. We had very noisy neighbors along with an a/c unit that was very loud. Breakfast was absolutely awful. There was no fresh fruit, coffee was cold and the eggs were rubber.

    We stayed at this hotel in August 2016 while attending a family event at a nearby event center. The room was clean and comfortable. We were next to the elevators, but the room was extremely quiet - no extraneous noise at all. The staff was courteous and helpful. The breakfast was a cut above. We were extremely pleased to find protein (eggs and bacon) instead of just the normal high-carb continental fare. Great job! Would definitely stay here again, if we were in the area.

    The suite was perfect for our family of 5 and the room was clean and comfortable. My kids enjoyed the indoor pool. Restaurants and shopping are within walking distance. My one complaint is with the breakfast area - it is way too small for the large number of people that need served. There is not enough seating and the food area is cramped. Breakfast hours are until 10:00am but at 9:30 there was hardly anything left and it did not appear that the breakfast server was going to refill anything.

    « Rocky Mountain View in UT »

    We stay at this BW every time we come to UT to visit family & friends (1 to 2 times a year). This time the property seemed dated; the furnishings seemed old & tired. The heating/cooling system was soooo loud we could not have it on, even though the temperature outside was above 90 degrees. The lamp was broken, could not turn it on -- had to plug the lamp in each time until it was changed out. The sheets were very worn (they were clean). It was just not the best experience for the $$ paid.

Waffles were good but pre made and I prefer the make your own like at other Hotel Chains. The staff was very friendly and like I said the pool area is always open so that is a big bonus when you get in late. I would definitely stay at this here again.

    « Should have been better. »

    On a recent road trip my family stayed at 3 different BW properties and I expected this to be the best. It just wasn't. Nothing absolutely wrong, just a lot not quite right. The parking lot layout was awkward, the elevators are right in the middle of the hallway instead of an alcove at the end, so lots of traffic and congestion in the hallway if your room is close to the elevator. The breakfast room layout was poorly designed and fit way fewer people than it should. One bed in the room was saggy and not great, but I'm told the other was very comfortable. The location is very convenient for Ikea and the Loveland aquarium, which is why we chose it, but overall, we just were not thrilled with our stay.

    This BW was very nice. Didn't interact with the staff too much but when I did they were very pleasant. The location was great. Within walking distance of several restaurants. The room was very nice with a decent sized TV. The only two complaints I have is the exhaust fan in the bathroom needed a good cleaning and the free products (shampoo, conditioner...etc) were made in China. There are too many quality and safe products from the USA that can be had at the same price. For those of you that choose BW for their great breakfast don't expect too much from this one. The food was mediocre at best. I stayed 5 nights and didn't get much variety. Somewhat disappointed because usually BW's have a great breakfast. Overall I like it and would stay again.

    « Short but good experience »

    First time at this location for one night on business. I arrived about 8:45 PM and the staff was very accommodating. I inquired about restaurants and they recommended two, but by the time I got to either of them, they had stopped serving. The hotel is definitely family oriented, so it was a little loud in the halls, but not disruptive to me, so I did not complain. The room decor was clean and modern, but the bathroom sink stopper handle was hard to work and could not be used to stop the drain to fill the sink. It was too close to the wall and the picture framed mirror above it. The bed was comfortable. There was free WIFI. There was also coffee and tea in the room as well as the lobby. There was also a microwave and mini-refrigerator. The breakfast was good, not exception, but a nice variety of breads and pastries, hot and cold cereal, fruits, waffles, scrambled eggs and bacon, coffees, teas and juices. It is not high end, but it came with the room and you do not have to rush out early to find a restaurant when your on business. And who wants fast food breakfast?! I have had better and have had many that were worse. I did not use the pool, fitness center, lounge or the business center. I would recommend this for families and travelers alike.

    « Computers and Microwave in Lobby, Room Fridges, but Busy with High School Kids »

    I've stayed at this hotel for a conference five years running. Good things: The lobby staff was very helpful, friendly, and accommodated my request for a quiet room on the fourth floor. They also asked a noisy neighbor to turn down a television blaring at 11 p.m. (But that was only one night--the rest of the week was quiet.) The lobby and rooms are clean, modern, and well decorated (although the rooms are dark--who's idea was that black accent wall?) Hot drinks are available in the lobby 24/7, with a good selection of herbal teas. The lobby also has three computers and a free printer--this always comes in handy. The So-so: Breakfast. They used to have omelets and a few things to add flavor to the powdered eggs. Now just plain eggs, although they did have hard-boiled one day. Sausage most days, bacon once. Only one house-brand flavor of yogurt. They do have Belgian waffles now, and a pot of oatmeal you could add toppings to, but I'd prefer more varieties of fruit and a few more healthy protein options. Kids would love the breakfast, which may be one reason it is so popular for debate tournaments and the like. The hotel was full of high school groups. Unlike other groups in past years, however, the debaters weren't noisy late at night. Fitness room needs new equipment. The elliptical made a horrible noise. The front desk did oil it when I told them, but it only helped a little. The thing needs to be replaced. Overall, good value, location, and amenities.

So so for the breakfast, which would have been better if they kept the hot food hot. Lukewarm eggs, cold sausage are not ok. The orange juice was mostly water so needed concentrate added. On another note, we've been to Best Westerns/other hotels where there were cookies upon check in or in the evening. Little things such as that go a long way for excellence and a memorable reason to return.

    This was a very nice and clean hotel with a very helpful staff. The indoor pool is very nice and the free breakfast is actually really good. The only reason why I'm not giving this 5 stars is the cleaning staff seems to constantly be in the hall ways, so I found that I had to dodge the attendant cart, or push my luggage over vacuum cords, or not try to slip on a newly mopped floor all the time. It's nice that they're making the extra effort to keep the place clean, but it just seemed like it was constantly being cleaned? Overall we had a lovely stay and I would not hesitate to visit again.

When I found it was too far to walk to work from the hotel, they arranged a complimentary shuttle to take me there. The Wi-Fi was also much faster than other hotels, which was a big plus to me. All in all, I strongly recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in Sandy, UT!

The hotel has been very accommodating for our team, and has wonderful at providing a fantastic group rate for the team and parents attending! They are super easy to work with and the rooms are very large which easily accommodates 4 players to a room. Thank you CottonTree Inn, Sandy for another fantastic stay!!!

    « Added Value Service! »

    The staff was very helpful and accommodating. Our large group of 30 arrived midday, three hours before check in, and the staff allowed us to set up our picnic lunch in their breakfast area while they prioritized our rooms for cleaning, allowing us to check in 2 hours early. They also allowed us to use a conference room for our catered dinner and provided a projector to use during our dinner. The rooms were clean and very comfortable and the staff provided a cot for a late addition to our group. They went above and beyond to make our stay easy! Will stay again and I highly recommend you stay here! Lisa F.

    The hotel is easy to get to from the airport - 20 minutes approx. Close enough to easily reach the slopes yet in a central location ideal for restaurants, shopping and other area attractions. All the staff are friendly and genuinely seem happy there which says plenty about their work environment. The room was tasteful, pleasant and roomy, it had everything we needed and nothing we didnt. Balcony was useful with a nice view of the Wasatch, which was a bonus.

    « Discounts? That's a joke! »

    I stayed at Best Western On Auto Mall Drive, Sandy, Utah. Asked for discounts for AARP or military. None given, guy that walked in after me was given same rate as I was! No one at front desk seemed to have a clue as to what was going on. My credit card was run so many times, different amounts each time, that my company placed a stop on my card. They assumed it was fraudulent transactions. I wasn't aware of what had happened, until I tried to use the card again. It was declined!!! I then spent several hours trying to straighten the mess out! The room was ok, however it was not worth the hassle. I cannot recommend this hotel to anyone.

    Upgrade - maybe new linens or furniture, but still a dump. Windows don't work; the eating area must have been an after thought because there was little room to sit. Very crowded and unappealing. There is newer and nicer places a block away.

    « Promised I Wouldn't Come Back but Didn't Have a Choice! Same complaints as before. »

    Back in March 2014, I wrote a review saying I would never come back. However, a week ago, we needed just one night and there was an event in the area so there weren't many choices. Since it was just one night, we booked . Again, the staff is great. The rooms are nice. Breakfast is super. Just two things...Do NOT book a room at the back of the hotel. Not only is there garbage pick up but apparently there's a marshalling yard for dump trucks and cement trucks. They go in an out all afternoon and start early in the morning. Forget trying to sleep. The other thing is the rude cleaning staff. Same complaint I had before. We live in Mexico so I speak Spanish! They act like you're in their way or they don't understand you when you ask for something. No smiles. No congeniality at all...in Spanish OR English.

    « Best is a state of mind »

    I have been staying at the Cotton Tree Inn for our occasional trips to Salt Lake City, for close on to 20 years now. It has mostly been above our expectations, and all things human being flawed, on occasions when they fell short, the employees rose to the occasion and made things right. I find no reason to waste my time checking out other places, when my time is limited. In my mind, the Cotton Tree Inn is what Best Western is all about.

    My brother and I made a two day road trip from San Diego to purchase a vintage dirt bike. It was important to find a hotel that was pet friendly which BWCTI is. The free breakfast offered a variety of breakfast staples such as pastries, meat, eggs, potatoes, etc. Juices, two types of coffee service, hot tea or hot chocolate are also featured. When the infamous inversion layer and fog lifted, we were given the additional treat of a spectacular view of the snow covered mountains. Sweet.

    « Loud party, bad service »

    There are several nice hotels to stay at in Sandy and this hotel - although it is clean - isn't one of them. The walls and floors are not insulated for sound at all. We were in room 232 and the first night there was a large family party going on in the conference room right below us, loud music, kids running around everywhere. It seemed to quiet down around 11:30 and we were happy for that. About 2 am we were awakened to loud cheering and loud banging like something was banging on the floor below us. We waited about 15 minutes to see if it would stop but to no avail, it was just getting louder so we called down to the front desk to see what could be done, they acted like they had no idea what we were talking about but said they would see what they could do. 30 minutes later and no change my husband went down to the conference room where the party was going on earlier, the family was playing basketball in the conference room! They apologized and said they do this every year and the hotel knows not to book the rooms over the conference room, that didn't help our situation much. My husband went to the front desk and they said it was a mistake and we shouldn't have been put in the room we were in but that there was nothing that could be done about it now. The family very cordially kept it down and we were finally able to go back to sleep around 4 am but a frustrating and unrestful night to say the least. The next day we left the hotel around 9:30 am. We got back to the hotel around 10 pm, opened the door to our room and found that we never received maid service, dirty towels on the floor, bed not made. My husband went down to the front desk to find out why and they tried to say that we must of had the do not disturb sign on the door, which we did not, but again there was nothing they could do about it now. When he voiced his frustration with all that had happened they said we would have to talk to the manager on Monday and acted put out that we were upset. They did offer to send fresh towels up but after waiting for an hour and no towels we had to call down and request them again, around 11 pm we finally got towels. We come out to the Sandy area about once a month and stay a weekend, we have stayed at many of the other hotels in the area and would recommend the Hilton Garden Inn, the Courtyard Marriot or the Country Inn and Suites but we will NEVER stay at the Best Western Cottontree in Sandy again nor ever recommend it.

I wasnt expecting it because I only mentioned it during the booking several weeks before. Would recommend this hotel to anyone!

    « Good, clean and comfortable place »

    This motel is about 15 minutes north of city center. It is clean, quiet and comfortable. Reasonably priced and offers good breakfast. Rooms were spacious, clean and had basic amenities. There's a restaurant across the street if you need a bigger breakfast than what is served at the hotel.

    « Nice hotel if you like soft beds. »

    Everything was good to very good except the bed. In fairness we prefer hard beds so the pillow-top mattresses were a nightmare for us. Also mushy pillows. Breakfast was standard hotel scrambled eggs, undercooked pre-cooked waffles etc. but they do a nice job of keeping up with heavy demand for breakfast. Overall I would definitely recommend staying here.

    « Overall, great experience, but internet very slow »

    I've stayed here a couple of times for skiing and its a great hotel. The staff are very pleasant and helpful, rooms are clean, breakfast is good, and its close to everything. However, the internet capacity is very limited. I tested it a number of times and the download speeds are only about 5 MBPS, compared to about the 50 MBPS or more that most people get at home. This may work for casually browsing websites, but was not enough capacity for me to log on to my encrypted work VPN. So, while this is a good hotel, it may not be the right hotel for you if you need to maintain connectivity for work.

    « Really nice hotel »

    I stay at best western hotels often for business and this is a really enjoyable facility, it is clean and has a spacious room and lots of places to relax, from an indoor pool to a great looking relaxing lobby and dining area. The areas between floors are quiet and the construction design keeps the noise down. The views from the window are nice overlooking the city.

    « Better than expected »

    Hotel was everything we could ask for, at a reasonable price. Looked at the ski resorts and could not afford to stay unless we put our children on cots for the week (they are 19 and 21 years old). Glad we chose this hotel, it was clean, neat, easy to get to, close to the ski resorts, Salt Lake city, restaurants, etc. Breakfast was included so that saved us some money (especially with four people). Coffee and hot cocoa were available anytime. Pool and hot tub were open 24 hours. Hotel saved us money on lift tickets and ski rentals. Staff was courteous and friendly. We needed to stay about six hours past check out time and staff was able to accommodate our needs for a fair price.

    « Nice hotel -- we loved the breakfast »

    It was a standard size room, but was clean and modern. The TV and Internet both worked great. We LOVED the breakfast and thought the selection was good for us (family of 3). We swam in the pool and really enjoyed that. The pool was clean but the water was very cloudy. The "shallow" end was pretty deep, so it was hard for our 6 year old to play because she couldn't stand even in the shallow end. It was still fun for kids.

    « Bring back the microwave in the breakfast area »

    I have stayed at this Hotel several times the rooms are clean and comfortable and I will most likely stay here again however for the first time I had to pay an incidental fee which I think is a joke, If a family is staying at several hotels on a vacation and everyone charges a hundred Dollar incidental fee that greatly cuts into funds needed for a family vacation you have all my info no need in incidental fees. Also put the micro-wave back in the breakfast area the food don't stay warm the microwave was a great way to reward your breakfast no one likes cold eggs or waffles, also the last two times I have stayed here the Hot tub is Luke warm. These of course are a all things this is a great place to stay but these few things would make it much better

    « Good value, high quality breakfast »

    Our fourth-floor room (434) was well away from traffic, off at the end of the top floor, and we had a very quiet night. Pros: very good bathroom fan, you can take a hot shower and not have a steamed up mirror afterwards. The breakfast was a good spread - nice scrambled eggs, sausage, mini waffles, oatmeal, fruit and pastries. Good, and free, coffee in the lobby. Con: AC/heating system fan is somewhat loud; it woke me a couple of times, but overall I was able to get a good night's sleep and I am a light sleeper.

    « Nice place to stay »

    The Best Western is close to I-15 but with enough trees and buildings between the hotel and the highway to buffer the noise. There is some shopping available near the hotel with a mall nearby. If you are exiting I-15 southbound to access the hotel make sure to use the rightmost available left turn lane as you will need to make a right turn at the first traffic signal beyond the interstate. The hot items available for breakfast vary from day to day. For example, on one day the eggs were hard boiled, the other two days of my stay the eggs were scrambled. The meat varied from bacon to sausage to none. All 3 days had mini waffles.

    « Noisy Aircon, Thin Walls, Dry Breakfast »

    This hotel looks great, nice big comfy bed & clean room. We had a terrible night sleep every night we were here (3) and mostly because of the air con. The first night we left it on all night, it would turn on and warm the room back up every time it dropped, and it was so noisy every time we did it. We turned the fan down to low and it didn't help. The next night we turned it off, the room stayed warm but the air was so stale it was hard to breathe. The last night was pretty much the same. Also, someone got up early to go to the toilet and I woke to the sound of pee and the system running after flushing. We're always grateful for a place that has a free breakfast. We've stayed in a lot of places that have them. This one was not that good. Everyday was scrambled eggs, a meat, potatoes & waffles in the hot section. There was also oats, cereals, fruit, yogurt, toast, bagels & pastries. Every morning the eggs were dry, the waffles were either dry or doughy, one day the potatoes were dry, the pastries were dry on the first day too but Sunday morning they were much better. The left side of the toaster was not as good as the right side too. There was also one day where the room was cleaned but the tea, coffee and towels not replaced. Normally I don't mind when there's a notice saying they are enviro friendly & saving the planet one towel at a time but in this case, they did it once properly & not again. Upon check-out the clerk asked "so I'll just charge your room to the credit card you gave us?" Ah NO, it was fully paid upfront on Expedia thanks!

    For resting between work shifts, quiet, and very clean. resturants nearby are quality and very close, within walking distance. Homeless people did have a roadside sign asking for monies, which is undesirable. BW goes to gret lengths to keep this property maintained and free of visual structural damage. No graffiti here, it was great to stay and is always a great pleace to spend time. Just a bit of concern here for this review 200 characters before I can click out of this page.

    No special reason to choose this hotel for your Salt Lake City area stay. Rooms are clean and the property is well maintained.

    « Perfect Hotel...Loved It! »

    We have just had 3 nights at this terrific BW in Sandy...and totally recommend it. We requested a quiet high floor room with balcony which is what we were allocated when we arrived. The room was quiet, spacious, and had a nice aspect with a view of the mountains. Decor was lovely, and the beds had quality white quilts which made the room look very classy. The room had a minifridge, coffee maker etc, nice quality toiletries, and everything was clean and worked well. The TV was a large flat screen TV, and the reception was true high definition...fantastic (lots of hotels have the large TV's but don't seem to have them adjusted properly for the format or pay the extra for HD). Breakfast was included..fairly typical American hot breakfast..and coffee was available in the foyer at all hours (with proper hot cups,not those awful white polystyrene cups). Parking was easy with heaps of room on the property. The setting is very nice too, and there is easy access to shopping, eating places etc. We'd love to stay again and would definitely recommend the hotel to others.
