Best hotels in Camp Verde

Camp Verde, the gateway to Arizona's dazzling Verde Valley, isn't just a pass-through—it has more than its fair share of unusual sights and attractions. Formerly a cavalry camp, during the Apache wars, it has since become a small town perfect for exploring a fascinating region. As well as its Old Town, Camp Verde can count Native American 'castles', a casino, an African wildlife park, and a bottomless abyss among its many highlights.

Hotels in Camp Verde

As the main point of entry for those coming to the Verde Valley, it's no surprise that much of the accommodation in Camp Verde is gathered around I-17. Among the motels and hotels found at its intersection with the AZ-260 is the oft-praised Days Inn Camp Verde, a medium-sized hotel with pool and spa. The nearby Comfort Inn is another recommended hotel, with many good reviews to its name. Only a few Camp Verde hotels are out of town, the most notable being tied to the town's casino—the Cliff Castle Casino Hotel.

Things to see in Camp Verde

The most impressive site in Camp Verde itself it also its oldest—the Montezuma Castle National Monument. Elegantly spanning a deep recess in a cliff above the town, it is a stone-built structure standing 5 stories high, built by the native Sinagua people. Archeologists have dated it back to the 12th century. A more recent slice of the area's history is found at the Fort Verde Historic Park, reckoned to be Arizona’s best-preserved fort from the Apache Wars. It gives you a real insight into the life of soldiers and officers back in the old days. In contrast, the Out of Africa Wildlife Park opens a window onto an entirely different continent. Step onto its 100-acre plus parkland, with roaming tigers and lions, and you could be on the African savanna. Lastly, for those wanting to hit the jackpot, the Cliff Castle Casino is happy to indulge, providing quality entertainment for all with its games of chance, fine dining, and great kids' facilities.
