this is really one of the best B&B's we've ever stayed at. Start with the location--right up against some incredible red rock formations just outside your window. Then we have the hospitality--from the owners' commitment to service and quality, to the housekeepers, to the servers at breakfast. Always positive and patient. The chef does an incredible job each morning coming up with a gourmet breakfast. One day poached eggs over a sausage patty and sweet potato hash browns, another day navajo fry bread with eggs and beans. There's also a snack fridge for water, soda juices open to the guests anytime. Rooms are spotless and all feature amazing views of the red rocks. Great location in Sedona with restaurants and stores nearby. A wonderful experience!

This B &B was better than expected. The view from our room was spectacular high up on a mountain looking at Red Rocks of Sedona. Our room was clean , bright and airy with a south western decor, yet modern and inviting. Many charging ports for electronic devices. Complimentary breakfast was wonderful and very pleasant staff. We were comfortable coming and going as we pleased. A short drive outside of Sedona proper which was fine with us as it was very crowded the farther north we went. I would definitely stay here again when visiting Sedona.

The Penrose is in Oak Creek Village, a very complete part of Sedona. It is about 15 minutes from the center of Sedona and many of the reviewed restaurants. However, around late morning - mid afternoon, it will take longer. Because VOC ( village of Oak Creek) is less developed, it is quieter with less traffic. There are quality restaurants and available hiking trailheads near by. The most popular hiking trails are however, mostly accessed through Sedona which means the bumper to bumper traffic. The B & B is very clean, the rooms have beautiful views of the red buttes. The breakfast staff is outstanding. Their breakfasts are delicious! I only saw the owners and office staff once when I had an issue and needed to speak with them. They were helpful, but I would have enjoyed a bit more interaction. It was as though I was alone in a house. I generally left by 8 am so I didn't have an opportunity to interact with other guests. I knew they were there as the parking lot was full in the evenings!! I stayed in the Coconino which was a fine room, however, the heat was an issue. The thermostat often read 75 for room temp. I had to turn on the AC to cool the room at night as turning down the thermostat didn't work. The nights were cool, but the room too hot! I also found the pillows uncomfortable, and there were 5 of them...all pretty lumpy. And yes, I could have asked for a different pillow to try, but it was not convenient to find anyone to mention my concern. Don't take this review the wrong way, would I go back, probably as I did appreciate the location and quality of the house. A real positive of VOC is the proximity to Cottonwood and Jerome. Both towns had some wine tasting, Jerome a beautiful drive up the mountain, and is not as scary as often described, but I stayed on 89 as it has snowed the previous night. I'll write a separate review for the two towns.

The Penrose is in need of some attention to cleaning and updating. The view from our room was great but the furnishings were in fair condition and old. Breakfast service was good but a set breakfast for all. Considering the price we paid, I know I could have found better options.

We just spent 3 nights in the Coconino room during our first visit to the Sedona area. We were very pleased with everything from the time we made our reservation through our departure this morning. The room was fantastic with great views from the large windows. We spent time on the balcony taking in the red rocks during the day and the stars at night. The staff was very kind and provided a very nice breakfast each morning. We highly recommend the beautiful Penrose B&B.

The Penrose is in a great location - with views of the mountains from most of the rooms - but that can be said of most places in Sedona. The rooms themselves are small and lack refrigerators. Breakfasts are good (evening treats are minimal) but overall, the Penrose is very expensive for a good breakfast and tiny rooms.

The Penrose has everything—spacious and comfortable rooms in a charming building, attentive service and great food. I stayed in the Coconino room and it was a joy to wake up each morning watching the sunrise hit the red rocks from my panoramic windows. The innkeepers and the staff were attentive and available but not intrusive. Would happily stay again.

We had a wonderful trip to Sedona, our stay at the Penrose was fabulous! The view is one of the best in the area and the location is perfect. Our room was clean, quiet and quite large. It was nice to sit on the balcony and watch the sunrise, and the stars at night. Breakfast was a pleasant surprise each morning, the chefs do a great job. The staff is very pleasant and helpful. I highly recommend staying here

My husband and I stayed for two nights in Yavapai room . It was small but comfortable and has amazing views. The woman who greeted us when we arrived wasn’t very friendly. Breakfast was mediocre and small. No toast or muffins. We’d stay again but skip breakfast. Upkeep of patio and indoor plants needs improvement. Lots of cobwebs and dust. Evening treats were so disappointing. They were not homemade but instead frozen from a store and defrosted.

We were not actually able to visit because of flight cancellations the weekend we were supposed to fly. I just wanted to write a quick note to say that the owners are very responsive to emails and we would not hesitate to book this bed and breakfast in the future.
