Sky Ranch Lodge
Ranked #1 of 21 Specialty Lodging in Sedona
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 21, 2012

The hotel has a modest number of stars and that is fair because the basics are good without being outstanding or luxurious. But the people were great and the location is just outstanding. They have an outdoor terrace where you can watch the sunrise over Sedona and/or set in the west. Either way the red rocks are colour saturated and it is an amazing experience.

The only possible improvement that I could think of was having a bar serving the terrace area directly in the evening. There is a nice bar —with good service—but it is a bit of a way away…

Room Tip: This does not seem to be an issues. I think they would all be equally good.

The location of this hotel, and the grounds surrounding the hotel are exceptional. I chose the hotel based on their price and that they took dogs. I was surprised by their efficiency at check in and then their beautiful grounds to walk around in and their cute outdoor wine bar. They told me at check in what time sunset was and where to get a glass of wine to bring with me for the viewing and where to go to get the best viewing. It was all lovely. The room was adequate. It was very clean which is most important, but the furnishings, baths, beds and linens all need to be updated.
Sedona hotels are very expensive so for the reasonable price, lovely grounds, friendly staff, pet friendly and views, I would stay here again.

Room Tip: I had an end room in the back, maybe rooms that are more expensive and closer to the front of the ho...

This was our second stay at Sky Ranch Lodge. We had a very clean, comfortable room with plenty of room for our stuff. The views of Sedona and the surrounding rock formations from here are gorgeous. I love the desert gardens around the lodge.

I had read the reviews of of this hotel and wasn't expecting a luxury resort but I was very pleasantly surprised by the beauty of the location and the peaceful grounds of Sky Ranch Lodge. The back garden area where you can watch the sunset over the red rocks is gorgeous! We arrived late in the day and drove past the public overlook on the way to the hotel. There was a very large gathering of people standing there and it looked crowded and unappealing. When we got to the Lodge we immediately went to the overlook and it was peaceful, relaxing and we could have a glass of wine and sit in a comfortable chair. The hotel itself is basic but clean. Beds were comfortable and the TV had an adequate number of channels available. We walked up to the airport restaurant but found it more expensive than we wanted so we found some other nice places down in Sedona. My husband took advantage of the many trails in the area to hike each morning. The resort is located in a convenient area that is accessible to the town but not right in the heart of the tourist area. I would definitely return to Sky Ranch again.

Sky Ranch Lodge is a very relaxing hotel. It is situated on the top of a Mesa overlooking the Red Rocks of Sedona (see pictures). We went there for my nephews wedding and were very impressed. The buildings are a little ofd and have the old motel feelm but they are nice and clean. The grounds are well kept and have a koi pond and lots of places to sit and enjoy. If you are not lucky enough to have a view room, they have an observation area where you can hang out and have a glass of wine. Very nice.

Room Tip: There are view rooms that are a bit more expensive, but if you are only there a couple of nights wel...

We thoroughly enjoyed at stay here. The office staff was very welcoming we arrived even though we were two days earlier than we anticipated. The grounds are beautiful. It is such a safe, welcoming environment that guests leave their doors open and talk to people in nearby rooms. The grounds people are friendly and talk to you about their work. The guest laundries are conveniently located. The best part is the beautiful sunset from the terrace where you can sit and drink wine. You won't find a more beautiful spot for your money.

We've stayed at Sky Ranch several times, and it just gets better. Spectacular views, lovely garden area, small but nice pool area, and friendly staff. Can't beat the location, on Airport Mesa. They've upgraded the rooms, and they have a nice wine bar and terrace. We love Sedona and have tried other places to stay, but this is our favorite.

Room Tip: Rim View!!!
