Cove Parkway Rentals

Any feed back on this place? I can't find a review on Trip Advisor or anywhere else. They offer 2 room apartment for a week at $495. Most vacation rentals seem to run around $700 for a week.

I'll be out walking and sightseeing during the day. I don't want a resort with spa but I want somewhere clean, comfortable and safe with a kitchen. Any other suggestions if Cove Parkway Rentals is yucky!

Thanks

I have never stayed here, but I used to live nearby this place in Cottonwood. It's in a safe area; however, it is right on a busy road, and you might hear traffic at night (not sure how good their insulation is.) It is also a very "commercial" area - not what I would consider a relaxing environment, which might explain the low price. On the upside of that, there is a large grocery store right across the street, which might be convenient if you plan to make most of your meals in your room. (You also mentioned walking as an activity - there's not much in the way of pretty walking areas in that immediate vicinity, although walking to that grocery store would be quite doable.)

There aren't really any tourist attractions right in Cottonwood; are you going to be sightseeing in Sedona much of the time? If so, I would recommend staying closer to Sedona - otherwise you spend much of your time driving back and forth. There's lots of affordable lodging in and around Sedona; if you need recommendations for that area, I suggest starting a new post in the Sedona forum. If you definitely plan to stay in Cottonwood, though, you could always tour Jerome for one day, as it isn't far from the Cove Parkway Rentals.

Having lived in Cottonwood for a number of years, I can honestly say that there are no real tourist attractions, and not much to "do" within Cottonwood itself. It's one of the reasons I moved away; there never seemed to be very much going on in the community. Fortunately, that is slowly changing as the town grows, but it still doesn't have the tourist appeal that Sedona or Jerome does. When we come to the area, we stay in Jerome or Sedona, despite the fact that I still have friends in Cottonwood. Staying in Cottonwood would simply be a place to sleep - that's about it - and from there, you will always have to drive to other destinations.

I also think you would agree, MrTRavelEveywhere, that you're just a tad biased about how great it is to be based in Cottonwood. As the owner of a Cottonwood business, of COURSE you want people to base themselves in Cottonwood.

Cottonwood is a town that is 20 miles from Sedona and serves primarily as a bedroom community for the northern AZ region. There is a great medical center there and people who live there work in Sedona, Prescott, Flagstaff and elsewhere. Cottonwood itself is not a tourist destination. It is more of an oveflow community, even though it is older and has more history that Sedona.

If you choose to stay in Cottonwood to save a few dollars compared to rates in Sedona, you will get what you pay for. Expect inferior accommodations and a a half hour commute each way to whatever you think you want to do.

My personal preference when I'm vacationing is to stay closer to the destinations so I can enjoy convenience and save time.

MrTravelEverywhere has made it clear that he has little credibilty here at TA.

Oh dear. I wish I'd not asked now. LOL.

Thanks for the input so far. But does anyone have any comments on the hotel other than the pros and cons of Cottonwood versus Sedona.

Thanks.
