We received a very gruff greeting because we arrived ten minutes early. Not "Welcome to Cottonwood Hot Springs in and Health Spa. We're glad you decided to stay with us." Shame on us for being early. Our room was not made up while we were there, but they expected us to tip, even leaving a tip envelope in the room for that purpose.
The room was acceptable. We had a king room on the end of the lodge which helped to keep the noise down. The rooms vent directly into the hallway. A man was discussing sensitive personal matters right outside of our room. He may not have known we could hear everyting. The mattress sloped to the center which made sleeping a bit awkward. The cleanliness was acceptable. It wouldn't take much to upgrade the room to very good standards. Painting over mold is never a good thing. The tub faucet leaked. There wasn't a stopper in the sink. The microwave and the fridge were nice to have.
The springs are better than those at Mt Princeton. The rooms at Mt Princeton are better, however. We drove to Buena Vista for meals. We brought a small coffee maker with us as the room didn't have one.
