We will not return. We pulled up and they stated that they had no idea we were coming.... I had made the reservation 2 months prior to arrival AND they had emailed me a few days before asking what time we would be there. The then asked if we needed a blow up mattress (We had booked 2 rooms). People were standing outside and stated "oh didn't know that there would be guests, I'll be leaving in a minute" It made us feel uncomfortable, I felt like I was invading someone's home, not arriving at a B&B.
People coming in and out (not guests) I am not sure who they were, they never introduced themselves. Our room had a stale smell to it. My husband went and got his travel pillow out of the car to sleep on. The sink in the bathroom had no water that ran out of the "hot" side. This is needed to wash your hands, especially since I wear contacts and want to make sure that my hands are as clean as can be before I take them out. I was the first to take a shower, and there was black hair in the shower along with a used razor and bar of soap. Also, they turn the water off at night, so if you get up to use the bathroom there is no water at all. My mother-in-law got up at 6am to take a shower to start the day, and there was still no water. The place made her feel so uncomfortable that she kept her luggage in front of the door when she slept.
Breakfast was cereal, yogurt, and fresh fruit.
We have stayed at dozens of B&Bs and this is the first one that I would not recommend. If wanting to stay in Camp Verde, stay at the Quality Inn or drive the few extra miles to Jerome or Sedona.
