First of all, the earlier comments about this being more like a poor grade motel, rather than a 'resort' as the name would suggest, are entirely correct, and we wish we had read the reviews more carefully before staying here. But that is only the start of where the horrors of this place begin. The young guy on check-in is an absolute idiot. Pleasant enough, but he knows absolutely nothing about the place and describing him as socially awkward would be an understatement.
There is also a younger girl who works there who was down right rude to our friends, and told them in no uncertain terms that they did not serve breakfast to guests.
The rooms are non-smoking, but definitely smell of old smoke. They are dirty, the floors covered in gross shag pile carpet, there was mold in the bathroom, and don't be fooled by the photos on the website which make the rooms looks semi decent. They are dark, dated, and the bed is like something that have been used in the Middle Ages in torture chambers. The sink is in the bedroom, while the shower and toilet are separate. 'Tide' soap is supplied for hand and body washing, along with shampoo that leaves your hair dry for days. The pool is in the rear of the complex, and nothing like what is depicted on the website. Rather it looks like somewhere you would place your garbage, rather than a place to sit and relax. om Situated on busy roundabout, there is the constant drone of cars all day and night. The walls are paper thin, so expect younger members of your family to get an early sex education.
There is a sign in the 'garden' warning you of snakes and bugs that bite and sting. I think the sign should be place in the front office. A late check out will cost you an extra $20 per hour.
The older guy who works the desk in the mornings is creepy and weird - like someone out of an Alfred Hitchock movie.
Avoid breakfast served in the lobby. It consists of bottled juice, no cereal, Danish pastries and bagels wrapped and full of preservatives (the type found in dispensing machines) with used by dates about 10 years from now! Suggest the Starbucks or Wildflower cafe across the street as alternatives if you are unfortunate enough to stay here.
Both my wife and I had red and itchy for the entire time we stayed here, and read subsequently of guests contracting conjunctivitis when staying here. Again, wish we had read this before.
So, if you want to relive an Alfred Hitchcock movie, eat chemical laden bagels for breakfast, and feel like pulling your eyes out during your stay in Sedona, then we would recommend your staying at the Sedona Cedars Motel (sorry Resort). There are plenty of other places to stay in Sedona, at far more reasonable prices, more modern interior, and who know what customer service is about.
