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.
