“Average Best Western motel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2011

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.

I used to stay at the Best Western Airport which was conveniently located but, alas, it closed. So now when I need a home base in or closer to Salt Lake City, the CottonTree Inn Sandy is a great choice. Conveniently located near I-15, you can quickly head off to wherever you need to go in the area.

It is surprisingly nice and comfortable for the cost. The breakfast area is large an open with plenty of room to move around and get food. Most BW breakfast rooms I’ve seen are tight on space.

I have more comprehensive information at FrictionFactor dot com.

During one of my visits here I needed a place to meet for an hour and the manager kindly allowed me to use one of the meeting rooms.

This is a great place to stay if you are traveling with teens. It is within walking distance to the South Towne Mall, several restaurants, fast food places and a convience store/gas station. The yummy continental breakfast makes this my TOP choice whenever I am traveling with a school or church group and especially when I am with my own family! Rooms are very nice and the area is quiet despite being close to the I-15 freeway.

Room Tip: Upper Floor Rooms have great views and are nice and quiet!

I've stayed here three times on ski trips to Alta and Solitude. I always get a good night's sleep.
It's convenient to the canyons, and to restaurants. The continental breakfast is filling.
I'll be back again next winter.

As a single woman traveling alone, I felt very safe and comfortable here. Good location right off interstate, plenty of places to eat nearby. New-ish rooms, clean, nice staff. All non-smoking. Windows open, so you can get fresh air. A good place to stop!

Nice Best Western Plus Hotel near Salt Lake City. Good breakfast, nice indoor pool and area to lounge around outside.

Joe's Crab Shack is nearby in a darling mall.
