The stay was fine, nothing really stood out good or bad. Just was here for one night. It rained so maybe the weather to blame. Plenty of parking available. Drove from there to the downtown which wasn't far.

A group of us stayed here. 9 of us arrived in my party alone. We were here for five days. My only negative would be how far we had to walk to get to breakfast in the morning. I personally am more than able to walk the distance. However we had a couple geriatric/elderly in our party that had a...

We've been to the Cottonwoods twice in the last two years, and we do not recommend this place for families. The rooms are filthy and the service is horrible. One of the cleaning ladies was so rude and refused to clean the room one time for some strange reason. Lastly, if you like to eat good, clean and healthy food,...

Last minute stay at this roach motel. I should have known better from reading the reviews and seeing the complete lack of an actual response from their General manager, richard. Just look at his responses to his customers complaints, generic and never addressing any of the issues mentioned. I hope the owners replace this man as he is clearly unfit...

We wont a two night stay here at a silent auction for a charity we support. When we arrived our room was SERIOUSLY dated, and there were cockroaches. The sink was dirty, too. We called the front desk and there wasn't much they offered to do. Later (about an hour after check in) house keeping walked in on us to...

Great location and very nice grounds but so run down and the rooms are musty and moldy - how is that possible in the desert? The carpet and bedspreads were just not clean and the room was shabby. Added to that the management is way under par. We got there the first night and they didn't have a room for...

This hotel was very affordable, but sometimes that doesn't always work. A bit dated, long walk from car to room. Felt like a jump back into the 60's. TV not working, when I called the desk I felt belittled and not heard. My husband was on a business trip and I was going to be on my own most of...

Don't let the pictures on their website fool you! I was so excited after seeing all of the fabulous pictures, that we decided to stay somewhere new. Boy, was that a mistake!

First I would like to say that trip advisor is accurate, I wish I would have checked before I booked. The pictures on the website is very deceiving, and in reality this place is a dump and should be torn down. It appears as though this place was built in the 70's and have never been renovated, just some patch...

I got this hotel for a four night stay at a ridiculously low "Name Your Own Price" deal online and then panicked when I read the awful reviews.... however, the casita we had was clean and cozy; the front desk staff was wonderful; the resort fees of $16 daily included chips and salsa poolside; two bottled waters daily, coffee in...
