We purchased a Groupon for our stay in Sedona since I received a gift certificate that hadn't been used in a nearly a year. Sedona Summit was conveniently offered on Groupon at the exact time that we planned to stay in Arizona.
First off, to all staying at Sedona Summit without any desire for a timeshare pitch: Skip the "welcome gift" and avoid the concierge desk. We checked in, did a bee-line to the door and avoided asking about our suspicious welcome gift... we never had a problem with getting a sales pitch. We were curious what it was, but thanks to previous reviews on Tripadvisor, we knew better than to ask. Thanks, guys!
The one-bedroom suite was well furnished, though there were a few worn pieces. There is a nice sized refrigerator, a flat top stove for two pots, furnished dishes/silverware, etc. This was well appreciated. Unfortunately, there was no bathtub in our suite. Also, there is no free wifi. I have issues with hotels not providing free internet-- the prices more than cover this small amenity. That would be like a hotel asking a fee for using water or cable. I can spend $40 at a Motel 6 with free wifi, but resorts and high end hotels like to charge for this amenity. Insanity. However, the wifi is available for $7 per 24 hours which is less than some much higher-end hotels dare to charge ($17/night at one that I've stayed in). Also, there is no daily housekeeping. This is not a deal-breaker, but it's always nice when you're on vacation and someone else makes your bed. It reminds you that you ARE on vacation! We did need maintenance once for TV and internet issues... the gentleman arrived within 10 minutes and was extremely friendly and helpful. The location is right outside of Sedona and is very close to several eateries and attractions. We definitely recommend Red Rock Cafe (short drive) for breakfast and Off Road Center (sedonaoffroadcenter.com) for a TomCar that you can rent to tour Sedona with, without a tour guide and group of strangers. I put the website down because there a few shops that have similar names, but require tour guides or are more expensive.
Through company trips, we have stayed at some very nice resorts to compare Sedona Summit to (we had recently left JW Marriot in Tucson earlier in the trip-- lovely!!!). Sedona Summit has great views of the red rocks, offers an apartment-like atmosphere, and is well kept. That being said, it wasn't the most impressive place I've stayed in. It reminded me of a classier extended-stay-- nicer than your typical hotel, but by no means leaves you feeling like you're staying at a resort.
