“Great experience in Sedona”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

My husband and I stayed 2 nights at the Southwest Inn and we could not have been more pleased. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was VERY clean and decorated beautify with close attention to detail and we had robes, fireplace and a great view (the hotel hot tub was great after a day of hiking). It is located about 5 minutes from the center of town; we are so glad we were away from all the traffic and commercialism, ask for a room away from the road. The hotel is convenient and close to the hiking trails. The hotel provided a very nice breakfast (complimentary). I don't usually write reviews, however, the Southwest Inn deserves the recognition for a job well done. If we return to Sedona we will stay here again (we have also recommended it to our friends).

Room Tip: Ask for a 2nd floor room if you want a balcony and a good view. Also, even though it did not bother...

Thank you for taking the time to write such a great review!

We are well know for paying close attention to details of our rooms and cleanness. Our staff takes their time in making everything perfect for our guest. Our location is by far the best! We are away from the loudness of Uptown Sedona and down the road from Dry Creek Road, which is the entry way to some beautiful hiking trails!

Once again thank you for the nice review and hopefully we will see you in the future!

Stayed for three nights at the end of February 2013. We found the accommodation to be very comfortable and clean, with the fire a great asset in the cold weather! All the staff we dealt with were very pleasant and helpful, they went out of their way to help me with the wifi as I am not a very computer literate person, thanks!! Overall, I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone.

We had a fireplace and hot tub and beautiful views from our balcony. Rooms are cute and clean. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Would go the extra mile to be sure you are happy. Robes are also provided for your visit to the hot tub or just to relax in. It is not far from uptown Sedona, about 1 mile and plenty of parking for shopping.

Room Tip: Second floor has balcony with a view and higher numbers are farther way from the road traffic.

Thank you for taking the time to post a great review!

We love to make our guest happy, even if its the warm welcome when you come in, to the nice robes waiting in your cozy room! Our second floor rooms have a nice balcony to sit out at and enjoy the beautiful Red Rocks of Sedona.

Was expecting more for a 160.00 dollar room. Little to no water pressure for shower. Jetted tub took 20 minutes to fill just over the jets. Reported to desk person about water pressure and she wasn't to interested. Not even a sorry.
Would not recommend nor stay again.

Why do 94% of our guests rate us as: Beautiful, Excellent, Great, Wonderful; and then we get a "poor"?

When the New York Times interviewed the President of Tripadvisor, he cautioned reviewers to ignore the extremely good posts and the negative posts, and to read the middle. We love our guests, and they love us.

Yes, in those rooms with custom "raindrop" shower heads, we have low water pressure, but that is the objective of those heads: you are taking a shower outdoors in the rain!!

We stayed here over the 2012 Christmas/New Years week. The Inn is located at the western edge of Sedona (about 7 minutes from Tlaquepaque or the "Y"). We found it to be an easy place to stay. By this, I mean easy to find, easy to park, easy to work out of. The rooms are clean, nice and big with 2 queens and a cool little fireplace. They include free Wifi in the rate at a decent bandwidth. Our room also had a whirlpool bath which was a nice addition. Although we didn't try it, the room rate also includes a daily continental breakfast off the lobby. The outdoor spa wasn't on our iteniary this time because it was snowing and a bit cold. The rate we got was reasonable considering this is Sedona. You can spend a lot more for one of the resort places closer to "Uptown" but we found the Southwest Inn just right for our needs.

We stayed here two nights in February...It is a bit out of town, but an easy drive to the main street. Breakfast is good....we were able to eat enough to get hiking! We got a "room upgrade" for $20 a night, but I am really not sure what we got for that....The hot tub looked good but did not get in. We walked across the street for a good dinner. I would stay here again.

Thank you for your positive review! Our location is the perfect spot for hiking trails. We are right next to Dry Creek road which is the entry way to a lot of amazing hiking trails. We love how our guest can just relax at our Inn and enjoy the beauty of Sedona and not the loudness of Up Town.

We hope to see you again in the future!

We try to visit Sedona every year. This time we decided to stay at the Southwest Inn based on the reviews we read online and the location. We enjoy hiking in red rock country and this inn has a very good location near some of the great trails. It is a couple miles to the center of town but we prefer to be a little away from the hubbub. We requested a room with a jetted tub towards the back of the property and were not disappointed. We enjoyed the gas fireplace and upgraded bed linens.The rooms are thoughtfully furnished and all the little touches from soaps to robes made us feel pampered.

We have not been to a more inviting breakfast room (complimentary). It was large and laid out so guests were able to get to each of the stations without tripping over each other. They offer it all; waffle maker, oatmeal, cereal, toast, muffins, burritos with the fixins' as well as coffee, tea, cocoa, & juice service. The pleasant attendant was busy keeping everything stocked and picked up.
The property offers complimentary wi-fi and there is also an internet cafe for those who didn't bring their laptop along.

We enjoyed our Valentine's day stay and hope to return soon.

Room Tip: Rooms with jetted tubs are located on the first floor, while rooms with nice views are on the second...

Thank you so much for your wonderful reviews. We are so glad you and your wife had the opportunity to really "experience" all our hotel has to offer. Our views, our breakfast, our clean rooms and our amenities are things we take great pride in along with our friendly staff. Also where our Hotel is located.

I am also happy to hear that you had a great Valentines Day! There is nothing quite like waking up to the Sedona Red Rock Views.
