My husband and I arrived without reservation and we were greeted in a very friendly courteous manner. The owner was very helpful when asked about places to dine and things to see.
We were very pleasantly surprised by the accomodations...it was very clean and very comfortable.
Our only challenge ... We arrived on a motorcycle and the parking area is all gravel. It was very difficult to back the bike up and took both of us to push it into the parking space. But other than that it was great!

My son & I arrived at the Mt. Gardner Inn for a one-night stay & were immediately told we had been upgraded to the deluxe Pheasant Room. What a pleasant surprise! We enjoyed gazing at the meadows & distant mountains from our patio & had a great night's sleep in the comfy queen beds. Really appreciated the wonderful linens & cozy room decor. We even were lucky enough to see a deer pass by. The young couple who own the inn are very friendly & accommodating. They installed first class furnishings, plumbing & fixtures when they added this wing. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

The rooms are very clean and pleasant with a flat screen tv and small refer. in the room for convenience. Nicely decorated ... the owners take pride in their operation!

My room had a family with children staying above me and the noise was quite something at night and again in the morning about 6am until they checked out; so next time I will try an upper room.

Could not get on to Internet Access; The Inn provided their password but more is needed to log on ... the Inn states that they "do not provide technical assistance."

We booked online for 2 nights stay in room 3 for July 30 & 31 and enjoyed the stay so we asked if we could book another night and we moved into one of the deluxe rooms with a nice deck for watching the sunset. We were treated to Deer 20 feet from us, Osprey soaring overhead and Vultures in a tree down the road. Both rooms we stayed in were very clean and comfortable. We met the owners at check in. Alison was very accommodating with ideas and sites for us to tour around on our Harley. We walked into town for dinner in 10 minutes.The river is across the street with people on tubes drifting by. Just a beautiful little spot that we will be sure to return too. Thank you Alison, Greg and little Keller.

Stayed for one night in July on an anti-clockwise loop of the North Cascades. I booked directly online via email and found the contact to be prompt and friendly. The price was good at £70. The directions to the Inn were good.

Check in was brief; polite and friendly, but brief, which surprised me after reading many reviews on here about the owner's hospitality - perhaps we weren't served by the owner.

We stayed in room 2 - a standard room and the only one available for our party at the time of booking - which is at the front on the left hand side. You park your car in front of the room and then it's pretty much straight on to the road - may be 25 feet between the window and the passing cars. The room was good - two double beds, small table and two chairs, TV, bathroom with external sink, microwave and coffee maker. Very tastefully decorated - neutral yet attractive. My only slight moan was there was only one small rubbish bin in the bathroom.

My biggest problem was sleeping - the bed was comfortable but maybe I got the bad side of the bed - next to the AC unit and window - I found the blinds didn't quiet keep enough light out for me and the noise of traffic - which seemed to be fairly busy quiet late (particularly the Harleys!) - so close kept me awake. Perhaps some heavy curtains needed to block the light and noise?

The main photo on the website is of the newer block of rooms - the deluxe ones - which are situated well behind the block we stayed in, some distance from the road. My tip - get one of those rooms!

Tripadvisor ratings go from Average (3 dots) to Very Good (4 dots); my stay was better than Average, but not Very Good.

InncredibleWinthrop, Owner at Mt Gardner Inn, responded to this reviewResponded 10 August 2010

This guest stayed in a room that is close to a rural route hwy in a 25 mph speed zone. Only 2 of our 9 rooms- Room 1 & Room 2 are in this location. Most of our guests that stay in these rooms tell us that they slept well as the road is normally very quiet at night (Please see Sweet Inn Close to Town review.) There are some busy July & August weekend nights (as this guest experienced) with heavier traffic, including some Harley Davidsons. The building is well built with extra insulation. These rooms are incredibly well appointed, comfortable and clean for one of the lowest prices in Winthrop ($69 - $99.) They are intended for travelers who want a lovely room for a great value within a 1/2 mile to the quaint downtown. In actuality about 50% of the rooms within Winthrop town limits are within 50 ft of the hwy as this is a very small town. Therefore some traffic noise is to be expected at most of the hotels. We hope future travelers give these rooms a try as they are booked a combined 350 nights a year and this is our first noise complaint. For sensitive guests please try Standard rooms 3 & 4 or any of the deluxe rooms as they are far removed from any road noise. We look forward to your visit! Greg & Alison - Innkeepers
