On our first night traveling from Denver to Las Vegas, we stayed at the Cottonwood Hot Springs.
Dirt parking lot..(full of cars!!??!!) Yet when we checked in...there were many rooms available. (?)
The front office man....told us our room was upstairs..and we could access it through the lobby or the other end of the parking lot. Since we had parked toward the end, we chose the latter. Well.....as we walked past the wornout and empty bunny area...we climbed a few rocks...then to the steps....and eventually to a door way...which had no door knob...so you had to put your fingers in the knob hole..and pull the door open. Down a long corridor..to our room, glass windows on one side...rooms on the other side. Our room had no air cond. (it was hot!) no tv, no phone. (The windows in the corridor looked over a balcony....however...there was no way to access the balcony!??) Weird!
We tried to get our motel room type AC unit to work..to no avail. I walked to the front desk and asked the man...about the AC. He told me...."we have no AC, just open your windows and the windows in the hall way..it will be cool by morning."
This is a very strange place....the parking lot was usually full..we couldn't figure that out.??
At 100 bucks a night...its a rip off. Maybe $25 a night...and use of the pools...(which didn't seem to have a current) might be ok.
A very unusual place!
