“Pleasantly Surprised!”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

My wife and I spent 2 nights here during a trip to Sedona and we're pleasantly surprised at the quality of the service and accommodations. Everything is in walking distance...cafés, taverns, wine tastings...we were so impressed by this little secret in Northern Arizona. I hope that this review doesn't get read much so that rooms will be available next time I visit....word is going to get out about this awesome place :(.

We just came back from one night at the Tavern: awesome place in the Cottonwood area! Will certainly come back. Very quiet hotel, excellent accomodations, and several (top) restaurants and coffee places at walking distance. Kudos to the owners!

We stayed here for four nights a few weeks ago and found it to be beautifully designed and very convenient -- right in the old town of Cottonwood. The two-bedroom cottage was outstanding, plenty of room, comfortable bed, commodious kitchen, and quite private. Since the cottage was not available on the weekend, we stayed in one of the smaller rooms during that time.

The staff was very gracious and service-oriented. The check-in and check-out processes were awkward, but I spoke to the hotel owner, and I know he plans on improvements there. I can recommend the hotel, which deserves its reputation as the best in Cottonwood.

Room Tip: The cottage is especially desirable.

had the opportunity to visit Cottonwood for a bit of work as well as relaxation. Hadn't been there in maybe 3 years and what a surprise with wine tasting rooms, chefs moving there and starting nice culinary bases to weave into the small town easy feel. Work put us up at the cornerstone of all the Tavern Hotel turning out wonderfully starting out with a beautifully appointed room, comfortable colors, tasteful art and furnishings. An added perk were the 2 free welcome drinks of your choice at the Tavern Grille, $50 towards our bill for dinner at one of 2 restaurants, 2 tickets for a free wine tasting, breakfast the next morning......great value. Walking location to many venues.

Room Tip: only 10 rooms so all would seem to be on a par

Spent my 50th birthday at the Tavern Hotel, and was not disappointed. The hotel and the room are beautiful, with better amenities than high end Scottsdale hotels. Peaceful blue/green walls, corresponding brown/white/bronze accessories, comfortable beds with soft sheets, walk in tiled shower, and vessel sink in the bathroom.

The hotel gave us a free drink at check-in, wine tasting tickets, $5 coupons each towards breakfast in one of two restaurants and a $50 gift card to use in one of their restaurants in Cottonwood or Jerome. Speaking of Jerome, it's a two mile drive from Cottonwood, so we spent a morning up there enjoying the views and the wine tasting. Saturday night we went to Dobro bar and grill to hear Anthony Mozzella play guitar. It was like having a private concert, could not have been any better. We ate at the Tavern Inn - best service we've seen in a long time and the food was excellent.

Only word of caution is that the Tavern Hotel is not a place for small children - there's no pool or play area and the Old Town area has sophisticated restaurants, several wine tasting rooms, and a few antique stores so it's much better for singles and couples. Cottonwood is now on the map, if you haven't visited for a while, now is the time.

Room Tip: There are only 10 rooms and a cottage. I would assume any choice would be a good one.

Decided to stay in Cottonwood after making plans to expereience the Ails on Rails event at the Verde Canyon Railroad. Wow - what a wonderful place! The pictures and other reviews on Trip Advisor are right on! Spacious and contemporary furnished with upscale touches! The bed was so comfy - luxurious linens and pillows! Night lights on the headboards was so cool! Oh my, the bathroom was unbelievable! Huge tiled shower and nice separate vanity. Very quiet - never heard a peep from anyone else staying there!!
Loved the welcome cocktail and dined at the Tavern Grille (yummy)! Enjoyed a complimentary breakfast ($5 off menu item if you ordered more than a continental breakfast) at the Red Rooster Cafe. You'll want more than a muffin as the food there was delicious too!!
Definitely a find...we WILL be back again and again!!!!

An upscale room and amenities, the decor, a modern approach with traditional touches. The room makes the guest feel at home, the service is great, and the large walk-in shower a real treat. This is a hidden gem, way off the beaten track, and worth the visit. The imaginative approach to inn-keeping, is highly appreciated and worthy of special praise. I shall return!
