We spent 6 days at the Southwest Inn at Sedona and we a bit disappointed with our stay. Continental breakfast was some yogurt, frozen burritos and PB&J sandwiches. The bed was hard as a rock and springy. The room was very clean, as were the rest of the public areas and the staff was helpful. My biggest complaint is that they advertise views of the red rocks, a BnB feel and up scale accommodations. The reality is very different. Finally, it sits right on the highway, so there is a lot of street noise. I could have had the same experience for $100/night less in several other local hotels.
This place is all parking lot. 336.94 DEAL discounted from $532! Nice size “Mountain View” room with an electric fireplace, balcony overlooking the tiny pool and very large parking lot. I could see some cliffs in the far distance. There is one indoor chair in the room and two patio chairs. If you choose to stay here (though I would not waste the money again), you will be far away from the shopping street and have to endure a lot of traffic and parking to get there. Sedona is so beautiful that for me it is a shame to be here surrounded by an expansive parking lot. You might check the rates at Santa Fe Real across the street or Greentree Inn - they look very similar and are $200 cheaper on this date.
Sedona is expensive, but that doesn't mean that you should get poor facilities and service for $200 a night! Our shower only produced a fine mist and couldn't be adjusted. We complained and nothing was done. Pretty sure no one even looked at it, as the shower mat was still on the floor where we'd left it. The hair dryer didn't work at all. The sheets felt cheap and the elasticated undersheet kept sliding off the plasticky mattress protector. Not what you want several times in the night. The pillows were too soft. Breakfast was pathetic. A sign claimed that the food supplier for several hotels in the area was not delivering - but if you know that, go to the grocery store and get some bagels or croissants, jam, honey and peanut butter. Don't fob guests off with cellophane wrapped muffins and kids' juice cartons. The room was rather gloomy as it was on the ground floor and the window is under the balcony above. The pool seemed to be in the shade for much of the day, or certainly later on. To cap it all, when mentioning the problems we had on checking out, we were assured that someone would follow up, but more than a week later, no one has.…
Our stay was pleasant overall and good for the price (especially in Sedona). Clean, comfortable accommodations. The hotel breakfast was just OK, and while the service wasn’t bad by any means, nothing really felt “over the top“ exceptional in that regard. Would probably stay there again, but not necessarily.
I had an amazing stay at the southwest inn! Staying in west Sedona keeps you out of any of the heavy traffic but still has a few great local food options. They have a COVID concious grab and go breakfast. Everything’s packaged , burritos, muffins, juices . Frosted Flakes and Raisin Bran. But you never want a hotel breakfast when their are so many options around. The staff was amazing, two young gentlemen at the front desk greeted us and helped us find some amazing local hikes away from the crowds. The afternoon shift is short, they don’t stay past 10 and seem a bit less friendly only mark I’d give to an otherwise perfect stay. L
