“Best Western Cottontree Inn, Mount Vernon/WA”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2011

8/15/11 Best Western Cottontree Inn & Convention Center 2300 Market St Mount Vernon/WA www.bestwesterncottontreeinn.com. We picked this one over the other nearby BW for the heated pool and breakfast choices. Coffee is easily available. The pool is perfect temperature for this cool summer season. Our double room is larger than expected, though the queen beds seem smaller than we’re used to, not sure if they are Queens, also good size hallways. Breakfast main items changed daily – a plus, but needs more healthy choices, too many egg options. This includes gym access to a health club next door, but not as convenience to traverse over. Friendly staff. FLAWS: Wi-Fi is slow from time to time, no electrical outlet by the pool area so one can work and play, the pool’s heater died on second day & won’t be fixed until the weekend 3days away, bummer. The AC hum a bit at night but then you get used to it. The West side of the building vibrates when their laundry are running, but not at night, thanks goodness. 3stars.

Clean and spacious room, courteous and helpful staff. Convenient location and very easy access to I5. The comp. breakfast provided extra offerings beyond the usual, probably due to what seemed like a hotel full of contract workmen staying there. The staff working the breakfast room was a little inattentive at first as they were visiting with the "regular" guests. But one request for a refill on an empty milk dispenser and they remembered there were other guests there and became very attentive after that. Wifi was slow. But it's the best choice and worth the extra few bucks compared to what else is around in that immediate area. Would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: We had a top floor room. Very quiet except for the occasional train in the distance.

First stay at this hotel and I will now make this where I stay for business (usually stayed up the road at the HIX in Burlington but front desk was rude on numerous stays). I was upgraded and thanked for my Gold status. Rooms are a bit old but clean, well kept and a brand new HDTV!!! Bed and bedding were plush and the WIFI was pretty fast, I recommend this for business and for vacation...MT. Vernon is a great place to visit and you can't go wrong staying here.

This is a basic 2.5 star hotel. It was cheap (priceline), clean and comfortable. That being said, we were disappointed with the amenities.

Pros:
- Very clean and well maintained.
- Comfortable beds.
- Huge rooms.
- Breakfast was included.
- Ample free parking.
- Free wifi.

Cons:
- 'Heated' pool was freezing.
- Hot Tub and fitness room were offsite at a local heath club that did not welcome children.
- High Speed internet was hard to log-on to and slow.
- Old style, fuzzy tube TV.
- Breakfast was ample, but all of the hot items were severely overcooked.
- Elevator was small and super slow.

We have stayed at the Cottontree several times before and have always enjoyed our stay. As other reviewers have mentioned the rooms are large, spacious and clean. Check-in was quick and friendly and staff were very helpful.
A couple of negatives this time however:
1) Our room was not made up despite us being out for most of the day. We were told this was due to the fact that the hotel was full, they were short-staffed, and we had our 'do not disturb' sign on the door although we removed it when we left the room at 9:00 a.m. Fresh towels and toiletries were promptly brough to our room though when we phoned the front desk..
2) We skipped on the complimentary breakfast this time. There was a huge line-up and no hot items available. The breakfast room was unbearably hot, crowded and there were no tables available so we didn't bother.

These were just minor annoyances and will not stop us from staying at the hotel again.

The staff was very knowledgable about the area especially the ferry service. he rooms were clean neat and very classy. There seems to be a lot of contract workers staying here (railroad, constructuion) Their breakfasts reflect this. They provide a big mans type breakfast. bacon eggs omlettes, muffins friut... fantastic I will send friends

We traveled with a group of 3 couples to attend a sporting clays tournament. The location was perfect! It was close to everything we wanted to do, as well as being in a quiet area. The rooms were very large, clean and well layed out. Combined with friendly staff, great breakfast & warm cookies in the evening... what more could you ask for! We'll be back!
