Initially we were going to stay in Flagstaff while doing a three day tour of the Grand Canyon and Meteor Crater, but the hotel reviews weren't great. So looking further afield we found Sedona which looked like a destination in its own right - so glad we did!
The Junipine looked one of the best when comparing location, ratings and price. On arrival the staff were friendly and we were given unit 16. Initial reactions were mixed... spacious and cozy, but quite dated. The bathroom in particular is old with a clunky bath/shower that is almost impossible to get right and washing/dryers stacked floor to ceiling with a large sign "owner use only" written on it.
Maybe thats a clue - it would appear the units are privately owned and rented through the resort. So maybe its lucky dip what unit you get. Anyway once the initial, lets say.. slight disappointment wore off you quickly see all there is to like about the resort instead. The setting is great with the faint noise of water running down the creek and views of the woods or creek.If you like quiet and peaceful this place is for you!
Worth noting that Sedona itself is about 10-15 mins away by car and that the drive down 89A from Flagstaff has some very tight and narrow bends which will get your attention - particularly in the dark or after a 5 hour drive!!
