“Good, Inexpensive Motel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014

The View is a great value for the money. It's not very modern, and the bathtub and toilet seat showed a lot of wear. The shower head was at my eye level. On the plus side, it had a fridge and microwave (which saved me money and time not having to eat all meals out), a small dining table and chairs, and the prices were much less than other motels or hotels in the area. My king size bed was very comfortable, and the front desk help was friendly. I would definitely stay there again.

I spent two nights here in February, the rate was good. The motel is off the road a ways so was very quiet, except it is a road motel so the cars and trucks are right outside your door and Danny diesel and Cathy car alarm will wake you up. The place is very well maintained and clean and you can tell the owners care. The negatives were, a terrible, very uncomfortable bed (rm 110), and the wifi was only on during certain hours and then was poor at best. Just those couple small fixes to bring this place up a star for me.

Room Tip: Ask if the bed and pillows are new or newer.

We didn't want to pay the price for a hotel/motel in Sedona so since Cottonwood is less than 20 miles away, we stayed at the View Motel. Reminded me of the motels we stayed at when I was a kid………a nice, clean motel but nothing fancy. It's old but the rooms were adequate, small TV, the bed was comfortable, the staff was nice and the price was right. There are a few others motels/hotels (chains) in Cottonwood but they were booked so one of them recommended the View and we're happy they did. A nice pool with a great view if the weather permits next time.

We stayed here for four nights as we thought the Sedona accommodation was overpriced. So pleased we did. Centrally located but away from the main road, this motel is peaceful, excellent value with the best cleaning team we saw in nearly two months of travelling around the States.
All the staff were really friendly and I would stay there again / will stay there again if we come back to the area.

Nice people, great views.... what you see is what you get. Comfortable beds, affordably priced, nice pool - basic rooms. Staff were friendly enough - a bit noisy at times but mostly due to a Harley Davidson convention down the road.... easy enough access to Sedona.

My friends and I booked one night at the View Motel as a stopover between the Grand Canyon and Jerome. It was an affordably priced motel with decent reviews so we thought we’d give it a shot. As the name suggests, the View Motel is perched up a steep hill that provides a sweeping view of the surrounding Verde Valley. The reception staff was very friendly and the cleanliness of the room was met with satisfaction from our party. However if you are used to staying at a typical chain motel, you will have to adjust your roominess expectations. This classic mid-century motel comes with the typical small 1950’s room dimensions. With two beds and four people moving about in the room, you do feel a tad bit cramped. And as much as I dig retro buildings in general, some of the “vintage” charm of some of the room fixtures was quite annoying: the chain door lock came out from the wall; the shower faucet handle was loose and the toilet water pressure/plumbing was very weak.

Not recommend for those planning spending a lot of time in your motel room but it is a decent place to just spend the night after a busy day of being outside: it’s clean and affordable with no frills.

Was in town with my wife to run the local marathon. The location is good, sitting on top of a hill with a nice overlook of the surrounding area. The room rate was cheap, but fair for the very basic accommodations. The pros: the very mini fridge and microwave in the room. The cons: Initially walking into the room, it smelt like bug spray. The towels felt like sandpaper. The entire building/decor was very dated. The front desk is very inflexible with the 11:00 am check out time. However, we were able to finish the marathon, hurry back to our room and shower in time because of the convenient location.
