“Steal of a Deal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

Almost don't want to write about this place because it is such an excellent find. Great view, spacious room, clean and unbelievably comfortable bed. What really sets this place apart is their pet friendly policy and such reasonable prices. Although our therapy dog was not with us, it is nice to have the open option.

They could and probably should raise their prices. Truly, they deserve it. No restaurant on site but a 2 minute walk led us to a great pizza spot across the street. Room was equipped with a good size mini fridge and microwave.

We checked in late on a Friday, worrying about the hour, but our welcome was very nice. Reading the room's guest book was another testament to this remarkable spot.

Definitely coming back and staying here again.

Room Tip: Loved #4 with parking right next to the room.

Good - spotless clean rooms, friendly service, nice location
Note - be aware that the town closes early even in summer. Wish they could stay open longer. Lower rooms noisier if upstairs is occupied

Mt, Gardner inn has among the cleanest rooms of any hotels I have visited - even the back patio chairs were dusted. We stayed in the Pheasant room. In addition to the usual amenities, the room had a microwave and mini refrigerator. There is a nice lawn in front with patio chairs. They have barbeque grills for the use of the guests. Though the front desk is not attended all the time, Greg and Alison respond to the bell within minutes. The service is extremely friendly making the travelers feel at home. Allison gave us great hiking trips for the day in close vicinity that made our visit to North Cascades enjoyable. She also shared places where we could get vegetarian fare in Winthrop, Twisp and Mazama - all turned out to be excellent for picky eaters like us. The businesses in the town close by 8pm, except for the Pizza place opposite the Inn and Shari's bakery. As we were late on arrival at Winthrop, Greg even offered to pick up the pizza From E20 pizza and keep it in our room. Many eat out places in Winthrop are within walking distance of Mt. Gardner inn. The town has an Old West architecture and well located between North Cascades and Chelan - check out the information office and also the ranger stations. If you want to workout, Winthrop fitness club is right behind the Inn and open to public. The Inn has truly earned its certificate of excellence. We had thought Winthrop will be just be a stop on our Cascade loop tour. But this Inn and the activities in the surrounding areas makes us want to return.

Room Tip: choose upstairs rooms to minimize noise. The lower room ceilings creak if the upstairs room is occup...

We stayed at the Mt Gardner Inn for two nights as part of a trip around Washington, travelling from England. We were in the Grouse room which was perfectly clean, beautifully furnished and had a mountain view. It is conveniently located, being a 10 minute walk into town and close to a local grocery store. The town of Winthrop we found to be a pleasant surprise, not knowing what to expect before we turned up. The people were very friendly and the place had a great atmosphere.

At check-in, Alison was wonderful and suggested places to eat, drink and hike. We did the suggested hike (Maple Pass Loop) and it has been the highlight of our trip so far. We also went for a drink at the recommended brewery in town, which again was fantastic.

Overall we found Mt Gardner Inn to be welcoming, clean, comfortable, great value for money, quiet and relaxing. We would love to go back again!

Nice room in a small town. It is a little bit outside of the town but near everything. The room has all the little things that you would expect to find in a nice hotel room plus more. The beds are comfortable, the AC is quiet and the shower had plenty of hot water. My only real complaint is that the walls are a little thin. The neighbors got into some type of an argument and you could hear almost every word for about a 1/2 hour or longer. The balcony view is nice with comfotable chairs to sit in and relax in the evening.

This trip decided to follow fellow tripadvisors' recommendations and was not disappointed, thank you. Very hot day when we arrived, Allison very thoughtfully had turned on the air-conditioning, thank you.The room was clean and the bed comfortable, shower great and large towels. Allison was great, couldn't do enough for you and was genuinely very friendly. Stayed 2 nights and got a great rate!

Just a one night stay at this lovely inn. Very comfortable and clean (although hubby didn't like the bed), felt secluded and private. Grouse room had a nice balcony on 2nd floor with view of sunset and watched a mother and baby deer explore the grounds at dusk. Plus it is about a 2 minute walk to East 20 Pizza for some really good pizza!

We are so glad these guests enjoyed their stay. We get so many compliments on our matresses so we were suprised when we heard this guest was not entirely pleased with his bed. We look forward to many future visits.

We were pleasantly surprised with the Pheasant Room here. The room was clean, comfortable and full of timber furniture. It is a short walk to town across a newly finished foot bridge. Outside the room was a lovely grassed area with tables and chairs. Very nice stay on what was a very hot day!
