When we got to Cottonwood Hot Springs, our room was not yet ready. The lodge itself is a cozy space; nice shared eating area; great couches and fireplace for relaxing; nice library of books... it certainly does not need the pool table nor the tv, though. Nice array of spa services. Unfortunately, at our time of arrival, a "clan" arrived (about a dozen family members) and they were loud and overly excited. When they got into the pools, there was quite a bit of yelling back and forth on temperatures, etc. Not at all conducive to relaxation or serenity - and management needs to have "quiet" signs or explanations to people upon arrival... there were young (2, 3, 4 yr. olds) who were better behaved and using only their "indoor" voices. Since we could see they only had day passes, we left the pools and went for a drive. When we returned, the "clan" was now in the lodge - still no "indoor" voices for them! - and our room was ready. We were given the very end unit, opened the door, musty smelling, not very clean, and could hear voices as if they were sitting in our room. They were next door, talking in regular voices, but that is how thin the walls were... We asked for our money back and left. It's a shame they cannot better insulate the walls for sound and an even bigger shame they allow the boisterous behavior of others... Of course, we probably hit the one bad day and may try it again, but NOT in a lodge room. Anyone have experience in one of the yurts???
