We were at the Quality Inn for a professional retreat which included the Verde Valley Train. We chose Quality Inn over a high priced Sedona facility for the value and proximity to the train, and great guest service provided by Candy, sales manager. Although the Quality Inn has the space for putting on events, due to recent hard times in Cottonwood, the services are not available to go with the space (but the hotel is in the process of bringing in a restaurant and bar operator now). However, Candy made excellent recommendations for catering from restaurants in Cottonwood, and they did not disappoint! Excellent choices!
The train was a fantastic choice for a group. Candy was able to get all seats together in one first-class car, which added to the comraderie.
The rooms were very separate from the check-in and meeting room - large parking lot between - great for quiet. And even great for our somewhat older crowd, as they drove their cars between and always had parking near the door! The rooms are clean and comfortable, though basic. We really appreciated the good sized mini-fridge in every room - for all the leftovers from the generous portions from the Cottonwood restaurants!
The meeting room was clean and ready for our group, with all needed equipment in place the night before.
The included breakfast was well stocked with lots of choices. Loved the pancake machine and warm syrup! There were also hot scrambled eggs, potatoes, gravy, biscuits, fresh fruit, yogurt, cereals, instant oatmeal, juices, coffee - more than you'll find at my house for breakfast! And the hot foods were steadily replaced.
I would recommend the Quality Inn, definitely with the train package deal!
