“stay at penrose”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

I decided to stay here for one night at the last minute. The owners were very helpful and efficient. I was able to book a room that very night and we enjoyed our stay. The room was comfortable, the views were fantastic, and the breakfast the next morning was the perfect start to the day. Not only were the owners very hospitable, but we even got a memorable souvenir from our stay. We definitely recommend this B&B and will be back soon.

Room Tip: stayed upstairs in mariposa. Great views

Christi and Whitney have got it right in a B&B! My wife and I have stayed in many a New England B&B and the Penrose has them all beat. Mostly due to the hospitality of the innkeepers. We stayed in the Javelina room for 3 nights and were treated to wonderful and surprising breakfasts (enough to last you until dinner), great views of the surrounding rocks, advice on activities that was well suited to our individual needs, and extras like unlimited drinks/snacks, free tee shirt and outdoor portrait photos by Whitney. The location is outside Sedona town proper but it is not a problem because Oak Creek has just enough if you do not want to move around. Beverly is an awesome server blending just the right amount of people interaction with expert service, a rare quality. Christi was attentive to all our needs. We experienced a sink drain back up that was immediately taken care with an offer to move our room (was not necessary). Can't say enough good. Would go back again. Did awesome 5 mile hike on Soldier's Pass and Brim Mesa loop (moderate difficulty) on Whitney's advice.

Room Tip: All rooms excellent.

We spent three nights in Mariposa....although small it was very comfortable with an awesome view. I would highly recommend they install ceiling fans as the rooms get quite warm and stuffy. The little bag of peanut brittle pieces wrapped in plastic wrap left for us in our room was a bit tacky. A B & B of this rating should be treating guests with fine chocolates. Now.... the breakfast. As long as there are enough guests they have the Hilton's chef on site; however, on those off mornings the owner cooks. A chef she is NOT! We were served VERY weak coffee, a compote made of rotten fruit, and something disgusting she called a "new recipe.". Also, beware of the fruit compote!! We left the mountain and went out to breakfast. We are early-risers but coffee was not available until after 7:00 and we had to go in search of it. Many B&B's offer coffee from a Keurig or
otherwise ..... available at all times. They did offer cold drinks at all times and a bowl of fruit....again, old and shriveled up.

Only 90 minutes from our home in Glendale AZ, the Penrose was a great overnight getaway from the valley heat. The views, accommodations and breakfast make it one of the best values in Sedona. Whether you are looking for a quick getaway or several nights, Penrose is definately a winner. Generous host and friendly staff round out a fantasic stay and a reason to return.

Room Tip: Javelina room has a great balcony and comfortable room.

The Penrose location is absolutely beautiful. The views of the red rocks are fantastic. The hosts and staff are wonderful, informative and helpful. The breakfast is delicious and they check with you beforehand if there's anything you can't eat or would like to have. The only problem was we were only there for one night. I would recommend this B&B to everyone heading out to Sedona.

My husband and I spent our first wedding anniversary at the Penrose and had a fabulous experience. The b&b is situated right next to red rocks and offers a spectacular view. Our host, Whitney, made our stay most memorable with his casual yet attentive ways. We received a warm welcome, excellent restaurant recommendations, and delicious breakfasts each morning. The trip was topped off with some excellent photos Whitney took of us standing before the red rocks - a great souvenir of our trip. The staff at Penrose definitely made our first trip (and certainly not our last) to Sedona magical!

Actually, better than home - we didn't have to do our own laundry. For my wife's first trip to Sedona she did a lot of research and found the Penrose online. It sounded too good to be true, but it was awesome. They treat you like family. Fast housekeeping, efficient. Incredible breakfast. We are already planning our next trip, and we could not even consider staying anywhere else. No trip to Sedona is complete without a stay at the Penrose.
