Thank you Karen for your hospitality. The Mae West suite was exactly perfect for Ms. Brannigan and I. Exceptionally romantic and very well kept and equipped, From the original wood floors to the claw foot tub, even the decor. If you are staying anywhere in the Verde Valley area on a romantic getaway and don't stay here, you missed the... More

A stay over is a necessity when wine tasting up north and after enjoying tastings at a couple of winiries and then some of the tasting rooms along Main St. In old town Downtown Cottonwood retiring to the Cottonwood Hotel was the perfect answer. Karen the owner is everything. She answers the phone, prepares the room, greets you and is... More

We stayed one night in the Wine Suite. The suite is well appointed, with a kitchenette, small refrigerator, queen-size bed, and very small bathroom with a shower. It is on the second floor in about the middle of the hotel, so it is a very quiet room. Karen checked us in, showed us the room, and spend some time suggesting... More

This was the best motel/hotel stay of our whole trip. It is not a modern hotel, but a clean and authentic hotel with a real history were famous people stayed (John Wayne and Mae West).

I have stayed at the Cottonwood Hotel several times - the innkeeper now knows me by name. I have stayed in three different rooms there and each was perfect for my needs. This is a historic hotel and each room is unique. Several times I've stayed here while traveling solo, and once with a friend. Each time I had a... More

The Cottonwood Hotel has history and pizazz. Karen, the owner, did a lovely job remodeling the rooms. I especially loved all the personal touches and wonderful bath products she provides. Karen is warm and friendly and wants her guests to be comfortable and safe. It's fun to be in Old Town Cottonwood too. Some great eateries!

Woman traveling alone have always felt safe and frequently return to the historic Cottonwood Hotel. Not only the small upper floor hotel being secured with a locked entrance door, you can also safely walk to a choice of several popular restaurants for breakfast and dining or places for an evening cocktail in a small safe downtown revived Main Street.

I was very happy, because I could meet with my parents in such a lovely hotel! The great service made our trip enjoyable and relaxing. I really liked the room because of the nice bed, kitchen and organic bath. The excellent service from the owner and wonderful weather and historical sites refreshed me and gave me a lot of energy....

I selected the Cottonwood Hotel for it's 1920s ambience, but was delightfully surprised by how comfortable the extra little details made it and the fun history of the place.
