Family of four Got a suite, king and queen beds, two rooms Clean and comfortable

Positives: Great staff including Doug on evening shift The morning manager also super helpful Excellent breakfast Cook staff engaging and very helpful, especially with one gluten free family member The suite room was perfect for family of fourNegatives: Pool and hot tub both closed (off season?) But after two days of hiking Grand Canyon,wish we could have known Concrete construction work stared 7:45 Monday morning All good, we needed to get going Would rather wake up to something other than a hammer drill! Exterior entrancesThe positives far outweighed any negatives Great spot to stay if hiking the Sedona areaI also recommend the Mexican restaurant right out the front of the hotel

The room was clean and had a fridge, microwave and single serve Keurig to make snacks and drinks The breakfasts had a great variety to choose from and start the day right The location was nearby trails and shopping, we found all we needed without going out of our way

The pool and hot tub were ready to go, but we did not try them out We didn’t use the laundry either Overall, it was convenient and the amenities Great, definitely a 3 star hotel

I went out to celebrate Mother’s Day and when I had returned we had seen our door was wide open I was furious and went straight to the office to complain When I asked to see the camera footage I was told they couldn’t because the manager wasn’t there but they would check the key log

The lady at the desk then apologized then offered 20% off I then went back to my room to celebrate Mother’s Day After about 30 minutes she called and asked if I had noticed if anything was taken When I said no she started to say that the only key that accessed my room was mine So they could no longer offer that discount but a smaller one I personally do not care about the price, I booked it expecting to pay But I also expected a safe room that wouldn’t be entered when I was not there Needless to say I will not be coming back hereAnd if you plan to stay here make sure you take everything valuable with you

We stayed in unit 8 for the weekend and it was a great option for what we needed! Right in the heart of downtown, was walkable to all the shops/restaurants/tasting rooms Quick drive to Jerome and Sedona Communication with the owner was timely and check in/out process was super easy

Loved the shared balcony feature! Our unit didn’t have any “living room” space, but we didn’t need it for our weekend I know other units have different layouts so I’d read the descriptions before booking to find one that meets your specific needs

Graham Byrne

Cindy Chapin

My daughter and I stayed here for a weekend in October We did wine tasting and went on the Verde Canyon Railroad Each time we came back to the room we commented on how nice it was

We stayed in the 1925 room 2 queen beds, ceiling fans over each and there was even a floor fan provided! We really enjoyed out stay The room was clean and the host would send periodic text messages to let us know the room was ready and ask how we were enjoying our stay Absolute great place right in the heart of Cottonwood

We had a wonderful stay here First of all, communication from start to finish was fantastic We stayed in sacred feather and we loved it

We checked in and of course we’re greeted by the smell of the bread baking The room was clean and lovely The entry looks like a museum with lovely art in recessed shelves with beautiful lighting The bed was comfy, the double shower was great, and we used the hot tub on our balcony too Breakfast was delicious and Robert was charming to talk to I would highly recommend this B&B

Brandon Edgington

What a wonderful stay It was certainly relaxing and enjoyable experience The food was excellent (not something you typically expect from a hotel)

The room was nice and clean They had heated floors a nice fire place Our own ac to control the temperature The shower was amazing and they even made fresh bread that was in our room ready to eat A pleasant experience to walk into We will certainly be coming back

I loved our stay at sky ranch lodge and we will most likely be back next year The views are amazing, we could see the sunrise over the mountains from bed The room accommodations are very nice and have a bit of a cabin feel without being too rustic

The bartender was so nice and we hung out at the patio bar quite a bit But they let you take the drinks anywhere on property so you don’t even have to stay thereThere is access to hiking right down the road so you can be the first one there in the morning And even though the location is higher over town with great views, you are still 5 minutes from town Plus the hotel has a free shuttle service that will drop you off and pick you up as well This was amazing for our date night dinner

Laura Owens

This was our second time there It is a great location with beautiful grounds and comfortable rooms However, the first time we had a standard room, which was nice but the bed was horrible! I’m fact, we went out and bought a mattress topper just to be able to sleep comfortably the second night

This time around we stayed in an upgraded view room and the bed was very comfortable It’s a shame that only the higher priced rooms have comfortable beds They should all be comfortable! The upgraded view room was nicely furnished, roomy, comfortable and stylish but the shower only had a rain head fixture which made it challenging to shower without getting your hair wet It was also was up so high that it was impossible to reach it to adjust and no shower cap was provided The amenities were quality at least The very private patio was great and the views were amazing! A big negative though is that the AC was so loud that it was hard to watch TV while it was running Then when it shut off, the TV would be blaring and I would have to turn it down significantly But then when the AC kicked back on, I would have to turn it way up again to hear it I was afraid I was disturbing the people on the rooms next door The cookies at check in were a nice touch but the coffee was gone and no one offered to make any more even though we had to wait to check in as our room wasn’t quite ready Cute patio bar with a super nice lady working it And beautiful areas to enjoy the views with a drink while waiting

Nicole Kremin-Hopkins

The view from the venue is gorgeous Love the feeling of this Lodge Very quaint, homey and relaxing

The staff at check-in was wonderful as was the stay itself No breakfast, but a restaurant within walking distance Pool seems a bit small for the amount of people that can stay, but that was not an issue for me Would definitely stay again

We can’t say enough about our wonderful stay at Origins Bed and Breakfast! It was a perfect venue for our anniversary Jeff and Karen made our stay so special- with a balloon, ‘love’ decor, chocolate strawberries, table decor and lovely sentiments on our wonderful breakfast selections Our room was purely a delight! We truly felt like we were living in a canyon with ‘rock’ walls and waterfall features in the spa tub and huge shower

The bed was so comfortable and the bedding luxurious The private patio has outstanding views All the grounds are meticulously cared for, and the common areas are welcoming and comfortable The breakfasts were outstanding as well as beautifully presented-three courses of delight to send us off to sightseeing around the area Karen and Jeff are wonderful hosts–so accommodating, and helpful with ideas for wineries, dinner places, and other treasure spots to visit They are a wonderful couple who work so well together, and have built a great home and business to share with all of us!

Michele MacLachlan

What a perfect way to spend my birthday! Karen and Jeff have thought of everything is this wonderful bed & breakfast from a blue tooth speaker in the room to games and hiking guides in the common room The breakfasts were so good and well thought out My room was technically the small one but I had plenty of space to keep to myself in my room or on my own patio or joining others in the common room or large shared patio with fireplace

I will be coming back!

Denise Hammer

Our 2-night stay was the best!! So relaxing, and the caring and pampering we received from the owners, Jeff and Karen was wonderful Their attention to detail in every nook and cranny has been done with love… and you can feel it throughout the entire house

Karen has awesome culinary skills, and every breakfast she creates is a work of art Will we be back???? You bet…… but not soon enough!!

Niffer P

Fantastic, smaller inn! Staff was friendly and attentive, there’s a seasonal salt water pool, a gazebo with picnic tables and grill, and a fountain where you can refill your water bottles with filtered water Our room was clean, comfortable, and spacious, and included a kitchenette, which was great for saving some money on meals! The location is good: close to restaurants, stores, and the uptown, but set back from the road, so it’s quiet Will definitely stay here again!

Michele Engelskirch

We loved staying here briefly while visiting Jerome, we had the best room ever, it was super quiet and very chill We want the same room again, we loved the room away from everything We were close to food and gas, and not too close to hear traffic it was a very nice area off the main drag

Very clean and had everything even a refrigerator for our waters The bed was super comfortable And the AC works great!!!! Thank you so much!!!!

Robin Armstrong

This was a great place to stay It was relaxing, and clean It was perfect for my family

We stayed in the apartment Plenty of space for the five of us Newly updated Enjoyed the saltwater pool Used the grill under the gazebo to cook dinner They had our pack and play already in the room when we checked in Best of all, they knew me by name Personal touch

We had a great experience staying in the Connor Hotel Online reservations were quick and painless Pictures of the rooms were accurate, at least for our room

Descriptions included information like expected noise level Some rooms are over the bar and they let you know up front We pick a nice quiet room not over the bar Our night was quiet and we heard nothing more that a door closing in the hallway, not even the ghosts that are supposed to haunt the place While the hotel is very old, it includes modern amenities such as air conditioning in the room with a remote control, satellite TV, refrigerator and microwave We even had instant popcorn packets to enjoy while unwinding from a day of walking around Jerome The beds were nothing special but I was able to sleep okay even with a bad back The bathroom was very nice and clean with lots of room Parking was not provided by the hotel, but on street parking was free We were able to find a spot half a block from the hotel entrance without much effort The location of the hotel was great for being tourists We had several restaurants less that a block from the hotel entrance Those are really short blocks too We spent about 3 minutes walking to our choice for breakfast from the hotel entrance Checkout was easy and quick The hotel is old but well maintained While it shows it’s age, it has also been upgraded where possible and we never regretted our choice Located in the center of the tourist section of Jerome, we were able to walk out the door and all the shops were just a few minutes away I highly recommend the Connor Hotel My family agrees that it was a great choice for our mini-vacation to Jerome

Tristynn kae Ruesch

I have no complaints about this place The history within it, the authenticity is 100% worth it The gift shop is absolutely adorable and the people at the front desk are so nice and welcoming

Yeah the buildings old and the decor is vintage but I think that adds to the experience The history of the hotel and the pub is also worth looking into I would stay at this hotel again and again Highly recommend

Tigearnan Breen

Coffee, popcorn and water

oh my! 😁Rooms are clean, tidy & well kept Beds very comfortable damn that comforter is soft!Front desk guy is personable, funny, jovial a true 😊And damn if this place isn’t convenient! Centrally located and across the street from stairs to Wicked City & Cornish Pasty nice!

We are so glad our friends recommended this place! Took our first “just because” family trip, long overdue and all of our expectations were exceeded The cabins are adorable, super clean and very comfortable The pool was literal perfection

The staff has created a wonderfully friendly and welcoming community Lots of activities for everyone Love how this is tucked away from the main highways Super quiet, just a treat and wonderful experience for all of usWe got home yesterday and I’m already looking for when I can book our next stay, for longer

Kerri Johnson

Always past this place on the I-17 and didn’t realize how wonderful it was till we unfortunately got stuck in Camp Verde Now, we will be back! They worked with us to get a spot last minute at the end of day on a Friday because our tow vehicle radiator busted and we needed a place to stay with our trailer till we could get another tow vehicle Wasn’t sure how long we would need to stay, so they made sure we got a site that we could extend the number of days we needed

Once we arrived we were so glad we got stuck there because the place is wonderful and relaxing! So many amenities: swimming pool, horseshoe’s, kids playgrounds, pickle ball, clubhouse with activities, large and clean shower rooms, laundry facilities, and a private river walk complete with tree swing The sites are well kept and nice size, though they do not have tables at the sites The sites are gravel, but the roads are paved which was nice for everyone to ride their bikes and walk dogs on Cost was very reasonable too I would strongly recommend this place, especially if you have kids and want to be close to water during the summer Also note that when we stayed it as close to 90 during the day, but with the constant breeze that Camp Verde seems to have you didn’t notice it was hot out


My husband and I stayed one month in February Overall, the park was a good choice It’s convenient to exploring all of northern Arizona, and close to major roadways

The staff do a great job of providing activities, almost daily, to get everyone together There are weekly potlucks, bingo, socials with drinks and appetizers provided Saturday evenings are dinners and outside entertainment (DJ, ventriloquist, murder mystery party) for a small fee Unfortunately the pool and hot tub were closed (opened March 1) while we were there, and while it was too cold to swim anyway, the hot tub may have been nice The gym is one of the nicest gyms I’ve seen at an RV park, and hardly used! I had it to myself nearly every time I used it The river along the back of the park was a nice bonus The only major thing I would say would make this park much better is to pave the roads It’s gravel and quite dusty, but it is the desert! We could not ride our bikes around the park (hybrid tires) because the gravel roads were too rocky The sites are pea gravel I would return, but in the warmer months to enjoy more of the outdoor amenities!

Absolutely beautiful! Very kind and personable inn managers and staff Location is just far enough from main strip for quiet, but close enough for easy access to attractions My wife and I stayed here for our elopement and it was very romantic and peaceful

Love the location of Clarkdale Lodge So near Cottonwood Old Town, Dead Horse Park, Jerome, & the National Monument ruins Within reach of Sedona — seemed to take us 25 min

And not so far away from Prescott for a day visit to the beautiful town plaza and dining there Well Situated!Convenient for home cooking — our unit had a good kitchen set up That saved money & gave us control over our diet ALSO the management was very accommodating and kind around a change we needed to make due to an illness in the family — great customer service once we reached the right person to talk to They were very creative about making changes — wonderful to work with!

Larry G

There are positives here We liked the location The king bed is very comfortable

The kitchen is sufficiently stocked All the bathroom fixtures worked well The unit was quite clean It was very quiet (second floor)There are some negatives that will keep us from staying again There is a lot of deferred maintenance Outside – rotting wood in the steps, overgrown trees blocking the way, dirty common areas In our unit one pane of window glass was broken out and clear plastic wrap was (poorly) taped over it One window A/C unit had a large gap where the window was raised for the unit We chased a lot of moths 2 nights till we discovered it & blocked it No toilet paper holder in the bathroom, no towel bar for bath towels (plenty of room for both of them) The “living room” has the TV, 2 chairs and a small table between the chairs 2 small footstools would go a long way (or a couple of recliners) As it was, we used kitchen chairs to put our feet up but it was generally very uncomfortable after an hour You can’t see the TV from the bed so that was out Fix the windows and spend $100 on these items – a little comfort goes a long wayAn older, dated place is fine if it’s maintained properly and furnishings are comfortable A little work is needed here

Jacek Roginski

A great place to spend a few nights in peace and quiet, away from the hustle and bustle of Sedona The most interesting places in Sedona are only 30-40 minutes away And this hotel offers a variety of rooms with kitchen and bathroom where you can easily prepare your meals and have a good rest after long excursions to the beautiful trails

I highly recommend this place

We had an amazing stay The GM went above and beyond in helping us make my daughter’s birthday extra special The staff was very friendly

The hotel was so beautiful, there was so much history there We were expecting a ghostly encounter, and we were not disappointed! We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite with our own private sun room It used to be a part of the old hospital that was the men’s ward The views were gorgeous, and the room was very comfortable and warm The hotel is filled with beautiful antique furniture The free continental breakfast in the morning is served until 11 am And we were impressed that on the menu were Belgium waffles, among other items such as pastries, bagels, coffee, and more We are planning to return It’s definitely worth the money!

Patty J Behrends

It’s kind of tricky getting up to the hotel The road that doesn’t look like a road, but it is the road is a one-way Also very steep and long

I love this place! The people that work here are the nicest! I got married in Jerome and stayed here the night, they don’t do “packages” for weddings or anything but I would still recommend here I love the ambience and history and it’s super clean and functioning The restaurant is down the hall from the lobby and they have good food and drinks

I will come back to jerome because I love it and I will always stay here It’s not a cheap hotel price wise but I still think the price is worth it! Plus they have different rooms to choose from Book ahead of time they fill up fast!

This place is pretty cool Three restaurants: one very inexpensive ($8) for 1/2 chicken, mashed potatoes, veggie and roll Same for meat loaf and other entrees

They have a 50s themed diner and a high end restaurant Other than gambling ($10 minimum at black jack table), not much to do except eat, wander around or bowl There’s a fun place to leave the kids while you gamble, swimming pool for guests of hotel

$1000 buffet: we were the first few to go in at 7:00am! No toast or bread of any kind, they only had scrambled eggs, corned beef and hash (taste like it came out of a can) hard bacon, good sausage links, cubed potatoes, small danishes that (taste like they came from the supermarket) and white gravy All of the food was warm not hot

It did include your drinks The best thing about going there was an outstanding male server that was so sweet, service with a smile 😊 and polite that made the experience worth it, we gave him a really nice tip!! That’s a man that truly enjoys his job (he said so) and working extra hours because he has a family


This is a nice casino All of the staff are extremely friendly and helpful The place is clean and layed out nicely

The Three Sisters and the Cafe have reasonable prices, great food and coffee The other restaurants are over priced for the just okay quality of the food and small portions I’d recommend stopping by if your looking to have some fun on your way through the area

A decent place to stay Nothing fancy Rooms were nice and the room with two queens also had a couch turned futon bed if needed that was big enough to throw a kid on which was a nice surprise

Extra sheets and blankets were available at the front desk who always had nice people Room had microwave and refrigerator Complimentary breakfast had basics like coffee, juices, hot water for teas, and milk Cereal, bagel, packaged muffins, danishes, and some refrigerated items like yogurt, precooked omelet, hard boiled eggs, and a breakfast burrito Pool was closed for Renovations and it was less than a 5 minute walk to it’s sister site for pool access

My opinions/response that went to the Customer Survey they sent me:The property is really a Model with Hotel amenities The staff was great, from check in to check out – and this place has a lot of potential, the washer and dryer on site are really handy tooIt’s very strange that the front desk assistant can’t book the same room (to extend my stay) for the same price that I can online, and she even suggested going through a third party site

I usually book with Choice Hotels because I have a bad back – this location has the worst bed out of any Choice Hotels I’ve been at so far It seems new, but really, really firm The pillows did not seem like they were up to par with the usual quality at other Choice properties Maybe I’m missing something in how the quality of all the different brands scale, but for almost $300 a night, I’d rather stay somewhere elseThe indoor AC units batteries were dying, so it was hard to see what mode it was on, or how to control the temperatures Maybe a print out of the modes somewhere? There were cigarette butts all outside the patio ground, I’d of had to explain that they were there when I got there The beds seemed fairy new, so I’m hoping this isn’t the new standard for Choice I like the uniqueness of the property, but foe the price tag and the bed, I don’t think it’s worth it, so we didn’t stay another nightThe property was undergoing pool and some other maintenance, but it’s winter and that didn’t impact my stay

Dee Curry

Concerned because I was charged an extra $800 at night for amenities and couldn’t use because they were under construction The soaps and lotions needed refilling

My friend had bugs on her windowsill and was told they would do something the next day and didn’t The breakfast choices are good The outside tables are awesome It was quiet which I love Too many stairs for dragging luggage up and down the stairs

We stayed 2 nights and will never, ever go back We thought we would give it a try from having read the reviews We will return to the Tavern Hotel the next time we visit Old Town Cottonwood

It is much cleaner with real amenities and professional staff Our first assigned “large” room was upstairs We found a dark, dangerous stairway with steep step risers and narrow step treads There was no way we could carry our luggage up those awkward steps with a dingy light at the top The immature desk person rudely announced that we had taken the last room After describing the problem with the stairway and that I nor my husband were going up and down those steps for 2 days, she “found” us a smaller room for the same price next to the “coffee room” Instead of Starbucks in our room, as we had anticipated, we made it single cup style in the small coffee room, euphemistically described as the “Guest Services Room” We had several problems that needed attending to, but the “supervisor” could never be found or simply didn’t respond We asked for a discount at the end of our stay, but received no consideration This place is overpriced and amenities exaggerated I have read the highly rated reviews in disbelief, and wonder if they were staying at the same place

Chettie Dodson

Cozy type inn Smaller room and bathroomCourtyard does have a echo effect as all rooms face toward it

May not be quiet enough for some, esp on weekendsComfy beds, large TV, and updated bathroomsStarbucks machine was ideal in the AM, self serveWalkable to main street wineries, probably the best part of this place!

Pepe Dawgg

Conveniently located in old town near all the shops, wineries, and restaurantsThe rooms are clean and fresh and renovated without losing their charmThe receptionist was very friendly and kinda weird, but in a good way

The beds were freshly made and everything in the room was super cleanTheir little coffee station next to the ice machine is the amenity i didnt know i needed
