Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in early May 2008, booking directly by phone from the previous hotel on our itinerary.
We were a little apprehensive at first, as this appeared to be in quite a busy location, but we needn't have worried.
The hotel is in a great location for visiting Sedona, Jerome and the Wilderness Train. We originally planned to stay in Sedona, but decided that Cottonwood provided better value for money. Sedona is only 30 minutes away by car, with beautiful scenery on the way.
The breakfast was OK, but there are plenty of places to eat nearby.
Staff were friendly and the room was clean.

Thank you for taking the time to let others know of our hotel. As the hub location to the Sedona-Verde Valley, makes our Hotel a convent place to stay. I hope you will visit us again soon.

This motel is well-positioned in Cottonwood, with plenty of restaurants within walking distance, a superb food supermarket (Fry's) opposite and also close to a Walmart.

Our 2 Queen bed room faced the adjoining garage and unfortunately, we were kept awake by partying guests in the rooms below until 3am on 2 nights.( This might frighten older guests) Reception said that we should have reported it to the police but we didn't want the aggro on holiday.

Our room was clean with hairdrier, a useful fridge, iron/board, coffee maker and awful polystyrene cups. There were no plastic cups to clean teeth etc. and reception said that they were unavailable. The bathroom was very tiny and would not suit a family. Lighting was so bad that we couldn't read or put in contact lenses but that is not unusual in hotels. It is very frustrating when you have poor eye-sight.

The breakfast room was immaculate although quite inadequate at peaktimes but everything possible was done to find spaces for keen travellers at 7am!

We'd definitely recommend this BW which is probably more suited to couples than families. It is far superior (and much cheaper) than Sedona BWs. It far -exceeded our expectations.

If you have time, visit the $3 Jerome museum before the walk round the town and have a drive through old Clarkdale. Slide Rock on the 89 near Sedona is a must for families.

We appreciate your candid remarks and wanted to let you know we are working on improving our rooms. New lighting, bathrooms, etc, etc, are in the works and are scheduled to be completed by end of the year!

I'm sorry to hear about the noise while you were here. The 3d weekend of October each year is "Spook" weekend--the biggest event for the Valley! Of course, this doesn't excuse the problem; and, I'm sorry my staff did not handle it appropriately for you.

Normally, our newly renovated breakfast area that seats over 40 is sufficient . Everyone seemed to get hungry at the same time for breakfast!

I hope you'll come again. And, once again thank you for your comments. We strive to give VIP treatment at a reasonable rate.

Many thanks to Candy and the staff at the Cottonwood Inn for making our stay so great. We had a perfect room, the Blazing Ranch Show and dinner were just great, the Train was a lovely relaxing time and the Out of Africa Zoo was very very special.
The breakfasts were more than adequate and we enjoyed the Irish Pub reccomended by one of the front desk staff.

We arrived tired, early evening and asked for a room with a mountain view which we instantly got (first floor). The staff were very polite, helpful - the young guy showed me the room straight away.
It's a relaxing and peaceful location. Great views of those unique Arizona mountains. It was great to watch the changing colours as afternoon turned to evening.

We had tried Sedona but were put off by the prices (around $200 to $250 for a basic motel as it was Spring Break / Easter - maybe it's always more expensive, don't know) and also put off by the obviously manufactured 'cowboy-town' plastic-ness of Sedona.

20 mins drive away, in Cottonwood, the price dropped to $99.

The room was great - v spacious, decent quality fixtures and fittings, well equipped bathroom, etc- what you'd expect from a good quality BWestern.

The grounds of the motel were clean, well manicured, with a small-ish pool, fine for kids, and a whirlpool for adults.

The breakfast was fab - we'd been used to cheap and nasty donuts at other motels. This BWestern had a full self service - hot drinks, eggs, cereals, toast, waffles, etc. Lovely!

Everything seemed easy and very relaxing at this place - ideal if you're tired and want no fuss.

Don't miss Historic Cottonwood. Very nice. We found a great family run Mexican restaurant at the far end of Historic Cottonwood, left hand side of the road. (much better for dinner than the dodgy Mexican restaurant next door to the B.WEstern). Historic Cottonwood has various dinner options, plus bars.

My wife and I and our 2 children stayed here on March 10th for 1 nt. because The Jerome Grand was sold out (we stayed there on the 11th).
This Best Western has no ventilation in the bathroom and after showering, it's just like a sauna. I felt like I was in FL! The pool and spa are very basic, but in working order. Breakfast was from 6:30 to 10 a.m. and at 8:40 everything was gone! We ended up going to Mcdonald's for breakfast, which is just down the street. Front desk staff were friendly and helpful. We made the mistake of leaving for dinner because upon our return, there were no parking spaces left! I had to sit and wait for someone to leave from the adjacent restaurant. In summation, I would give this hotel 2 diamonds at most.
Would I stay here again? Probably not.

As the only AAA-rated 3-Diamond Hotel in Cottonwood, we are very proud to meet the standards & qualifications required to receive this distinquished rating. One standard stipulation is to have exhaust fans in all restrooms. If a malfunction occurred, once reported the 24-hour front desk, the agent will ensure prompt action is taken to correct the problem. The Best Start breakfast consists of homemade belguim waffles, boiled eggs, fruits, cereals, plus a breakfast attendant for stocking supplies. Best Western Cottonwood Inn offers our guests reasonable rates, have a very good value for the price, & we're close to many attractions.
