I just recently took organized a couple ride on motorcycles through Arizona. We were looking for a places to stay that would allow our group to gather and feel like we could be a group.

It's the only hotel we stay at in Cottonwood. Right downtown and close to everything. Very cozy. Oh and...John freakin Wayne used to stay here. Ohhh yehhh... if you're a couple...stay in room number five. Leopard skin pillow cases and what not.

Happy to hear that my smallest room #5 called "Dusk" worked again for this cozy couple. This room has one of the original bathrooms where John Wayne actually soaked his booty in the clawfoot tub! Wayne romanced Gail Russell here at the Cottonwood Hotel during their 1946 filming of “Angel & the Badman” on more than one occasion and not...

The Cottonwood Hotel is truly a magnificent landmark in old town Cottonwood. The history alone would make it a wonderful stay, however, the owner, Karen, has visibly put her heart and soul into making this hotel a truly one of a kind experience. My family planned a weekend to celebrate my father's 75th birthday. We booked a reservation on the...

Karen and her Cottonwood Hotel are absolutely wonderful! We stayed in the John Wayne suite #2 over the Memorial Day weekend and had a great time. Her hotel is welcoming and nicely appointed.

The Cottonwood Hotel is situated in a great spot in downtown Cottonwood. The hotel is located within minutes of the Verde Valley Railroad & Tuzigoot National Monument. Karen on the website made no bones about #5 Dusk being small. The room is beautifully decorated and thoroughly charming. It is refreshing to see an Innkeeper take pride in their hotel including...

Room #5 'Dusk' is the Cottonwood Hotel's only small standard room in the hotel. For $30+ an upgrade to one of our deluxe rooms may be more desirable for most with twice the space. They are also well-appointed with wet-bar/kitchenette, sitting area, wine glasses, cork screw, real coffee mugs and more. We always appreciate our guests taking the time to...
