I have to admit, I was very impressed and very pleased with our stay here. So much so, when we return to Sedona we will stay here again! Thank you TA reviews for this great, budget friendly motel suggestion. When you are from NY, you have a certain image that comes to mind when you say “motel” so even though the positive reviews enticed us enough to consider it, I still went with low expectations. Well our expectations were surpassed and exceeded-SCORE!!
We had read that you can only check in at 3pm, so we made sure to be there by 2:30-2:45 and sure enough the office was closed, but we knew to wait. The owner, Bill, arrived just before 3, so we only waited a mere 5 mins or so for his arrival. He is a very warm, welcoming nice man, with a calming voice which just oozed a Sedona vibe. When we had booked our room (about a month prior by phone) he advised us that he only had two double beds, but that was OK with us. So when we checked in, he offered us a King bed room for our 2nd night (he offered, we didn’t even ask) but we declined and just kept with our double bed room for simplicity for our 3 night stay. He happily volunteered to show us a map and circled key interest points to us, such a nice personal check in process.
We were in room 28 and wow, pretty impressive, again, for a Motel. Super Clean! Equipped with Mini Fridge, Microwave, Iron with Iron board, Blow dryer, heated lamp in bathroom and excellent shower pressure! I have quite a bit of hair, so shower pressure is always important to me. Toilet flushes very quietly. Free wi-fi, cable TV channels and you’re in the center of the town. We live in a city so we didn’t notice any noise from the road at all! It really was quiet though. The only time we heard any noise was when a neighboring unit was using their shower (Hearing the plumbing) but that’s about all. No complaints at all with our stay! Even the bed was comfortable!!
We didn’t get to enjoy the patio at the end of the motel very much but we did sit outside our room on the bench provided and watch the sunrise behind Snoopy Rock. It was very quiet and peaceful. We were able to walk up to Pink Jeep Tours and into Uptown Sedona which is an easy 10 min walk. What a true a value to have stayed here! I wish all motels were as great as this, it sure would save me a ton of money in our travels :)
