I stayed at the Ridge at Sedona Golf Resort in August of 2008. I met my friend who booked a studio. The studio lock-off had a queen bed, a queen hide-a-bed, a partial kitchenette, small table with 4 chairs, small balcony, and a ¾ bathroom. It had plenty of storage, a safe, ironing board/iron, and wall-mounted hair dryer. The room had a TV, and DVD player. The kitchenette had an apartment size refrigerator, sink, coffee maker, toaster, and microwave oven. I brought a hot plate, and indoor grill as I read that the studio units lacked an oven. The kitchen was minimally stocked- had only the very basics. I did have to go out and buy spatulas, sponges, cleaner, and dish soap. The shower was large, and there was plenty of drawer and cupboard space in the bathroom. The water pressure was good. The towels were large, and there were large pool towels stored under the sink
I slept on the sleeper sofa, and as far as hide-a-beds go, it was pretty comfortable. My friend said that the bed was very comfortable. The view from the balcony was a mountain view which was nice. The other side of the lock off with the one-bedroom units have the golf course and redrock view which is spectacular. I was a bit disappointed that we didn’t have the redrock view, but considering the fact we had the studio, it was not a surprise. Ceiling fan was a little noisy, but after a day or so, I got used to it. Air conditioner worked very well. Furniture was nice and comfortable, not dated.
The maid service in midweek was less than satisfactory. The maid took four towels and only left two. I never did see kitchen towels. She did not pick up some of the dirty hand towels or face towels thrown on the floor in the bathroom. We left the unit clean, so I couldn’t tell if she did any cleaning or not.
My friend had a couple of massages at the Hilton which was next to the resort and said the service was very good. We didn’t golf this trip, but I did notice that the golf course is beautiful.
The main disappointment with this resort was the fact that it was far from the main part of the town of Sedona. Last time I stayed in this beautiful town I stayed at the Arroyo Roble, which was right in the heart of town. You could walk to restaurants and gallery shops from there. This resort is a bit removed way down on hwy 179. There is road construction throughout the whole town of Sedona right now, making getting to town a pain in the neck. I do believe that this construction is slated to go on for approximately two years, so if you are going soon- expect delays. After I left (with the car) my friend had no car and she was stranded at the resort with nowhere else to go for the last two days of her trip. The other thing is the fact that there are two small pools. The one right across from our unit was under repair, leaving one very small pool for the whole resort. It was smaller than what I would expect in a resort as nice as this one.
Bottom line, this is a very nice resort, a bit removed from town, wish the kitchen was a little better stocked, maid service could be a little better, and wish there was a bigger pool. Would I stay there again? Probably not because of the remote location and pool. If those things are not an issue for you, then you will probably like this resort.
