The hotel consists of two two story buildings with a parking lot in between. The design is similar to older motels built in the 1950s. From the outside, the Hotel looks like an older, but clean motel with fresh stucco and paint, and I was a bit disappointed when I drove up to the Hotel office, as I expected 1950s (yes, I was around then) rooms ... a bed, a tv, a chair, and a small bathtub and shower.
How wrong I was. to begin with, the room is probably about 30 feet long and 16 feet wide, a shade less than 500 square feet. You just don't find 500 sq. feet rooms at the price we paid for the room, particularly in Sedona.
Well, the location isn't really Sedona, is it? The Hotel is actually a few miles south of Sedona on Hwy 179 in Oak Creek Village near Bell Rock, one of the famous Red Rock formations that make Sedona famous. But the area isn't necessarily the low cost hotel area. For example, nearby is the Hilton - Sedona Resort and several other higher cost hostelries along with the pricey The Ridge on Sedona Golf resort. And the Hotel is right across the street from an Outlet Mall where you can shop at the Gap, Tommy Hilfiger, Bass, Big Dog and more. Downtown Sedona is actually about 6 miles north if you are interested.
Our room was clean and has all the necessities, which include free wireless internet (and a desk to place your laptop), a (I'm guessing at the size) 40 inch flat screen connected to DirecTV ... lots of channels including High Def, and a comfortable bed. It also includes a refrigerator, Microwave and a couch. The room definitely isn't your grandfathers 1950s motel room. It is the modern 2012 version.
Our room was on the ground floor and we were able to park right in front of it, so carrying our luggage and other things wasn't bad at all. If you get a room upstairs, however, you will be climbing stairs and, depending how far down the walkway your room is from the stairs, carrying your luggage down the walkway, too. The outside walkway is covered, but in inclement weather, blowing rain could get you wet.
One other disadvantage ... there is no breakfast service. But for the price and the room, who cares/ Not me!
