“What a place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

This hotel is just fantastic. It is beautifully decorated, beds are extremely comfortable, shower is fantastic, and nice and peaceful as well. With only 10 rooms, it is all on one floor. But the most surprising thing was it's beauty. Among the top places we have ever stayed. Excellent value, as room rate included first class train tix, 2 drinks, and 2 breakfasts.

We stayed 2 nights in Cottonwood at the Tavern Hotel. The room was extremely nice and comfortable. It had a "wow" factor. The shower was a tiled walk-in shower. They also provide Philosophy shampoo, soaps, lotions. This is the only hotel where the rooms lives up to the pictures the hotel posts. Most places look really different when you get there. We signed up for the Sip and Stay package. Overall, it was a good package. The Wine tasting wasn't what i expected. You get one 1oz tasting at 2 of the tasting rooms. The other discounts that came with the package was good. The only thing that I thought needed improvement was the water pressure in the shower. It was extremely low. I would definitely stay at the Tavern Hotel again!!

There is certainly nothing to complain about on the surface, because our room was very nice. Comfortable bed and linens, pleasing décor, walk-in tiled shower, good lighting, luxury soaps, coffee maker - well-considered ambiance and 'feel'. There was a kind of "wow" factor when we walked in. The only thing I would suggest by way of comfort is to reconsider the window coverings - black out shades would be great. The shutters were not enough to keep the light out so I was awake earlier than I wanted to be. It didn't help that the alarm next to the bed went off at 6am. The maids might want to check that before the next guest checks in.

The price is right, especially since they include a couple free drinks at the Tavern Grille next door and a continental breakfast at Red Rooster across the street.

I have to say, though, for all its glory, there is nothing quirky or interesting or charming about it. It's nice, but it almost doesn't fit in Old Town Cottonwood. Kind of like going to a hotel in Hawaii, hoping for that island vibe, but feeling like you are somewhere in New York City instead.

We went up to Old Town Cottonwood and stayed for a night @ the Tavern. We ended up choosing the Tavern because of their Verde Canyon Railway package (Close location, first class tickets on Train, and breakfast vouchers, Nice looking hotel/reviews and we were also going to the Blazin M Ranch--which was only 5 min away). We were EXTEREMELY happy with our choice!!! This little boutique hotel is soo nice. Its very "cute" and small. It only has like 10 rooms so it was very very quiet. The bed was super comfy. The room was set up nice and open and was all hardwood floor and nice tile (This was very important/helpful because I am in a wheelchair) They gave you a couple vouchers for 2 free drinks you can use at the Tavern Grille (Restaurant) You can choose alcoholic or non alcoholic beverages. I got a smoothie. The drinks and food were amazing at the Tavern Grille. Our server was so so. All of the other staff was extremely helpful and super super friendly! It was that old small town feel and customer service you cant find anymore! I think the only thing I would let you know, is if you are choosing this hotel for the free breakfast vouchers, be aware, that you get a voucher for a free continental breakfast from a choice of two breakfast restaurants right across the street (Both were good, we had breakfast from each) Which is basically a bagel and juice OR you can cash in the voucher for $5 off of whatever you choose for breakfast. Like I said both of the breakfast places were REALLY good, but it was kind of like not getting a "free breakfast". I ended up paying $14 for my breakfast alone at Red Rooster (I did get a coffee, a oj, and a breakfast, subbing out pancakes--so kind of a lot) Worth it, but, just so you know, breakfast will cost you some $ out of pocket, unless, you just want a bagel. This was one of the best trips ever and we LOVED the Tavern! Would definitely recommend to anyone going to Cottonwood or taking the Verde Canyon Railway, etc!

Not a lot to choose from in Cottonwood when searching for lodging. So, The Tavern Hotel was a delightful and pleasant surprise for our party of three couples. There is more than just a hint of luxury and elegance offered by this boutique hotel........good sized rooms tastefully appointed with all of the modern conveniences one could wish for. And, the lodging comes with complimentary cocktails and coupons for continental breakfast..............all at a very affordable price. A touch of elegance in the rustic western setting of the beautiful Verde Valley.

Room Tip: I doubt there is a bad room in the hotel.

Big bang for your vacation dollars. You can't afford NOT to go to the Tavern Hotel for a getaway. Verde Valley is beautiful and the wineries are lovely. Alacantra was our favorite since you could sit outside overlooking the vines, sample a wine tasting and order a cheese plate and listen to music from a local artist. We then went to the Tavern and checked into our room which you have to go to the bar/restaurant that is in the next building. A little odd but OK. Great reception by the bartender/concierge gal and in the cost of our package of $199.00 we got 2 cocktails, $50 gift card for dinner, 2 wine tasting rooms right there on main street and breakfast in the morning.
We walked across the parking lot to the hotel which used to be a grocery store and were shocked at how upscale the rooms were, the bed was so comfortable and it was as good if not better then any 5 store hotel we have ever stayed in. If you are looking for a relaxing place to stay this is it. The entire staff was excellent and highly recommend this to anyone.

Room Tip: There are only 10 rooms and they are all the same.
