We (DW and I) stayed for one night at the Orchards Inn as a stopover on a trip from Utah back to Phoenix to catch a flight back home. Since we were arriving in the afternoon and leaving early the next morning, we knew we would not be doing any hiking, so we opted for something convenient to the shops in Sedona and the Orchard Inn fit the bill perfectly.
The inn is located just off the main street through town (AZ 89A), and right behind the Orchards Restaurant (east side of the road). We actually missed it on the first pass through town (coming from the north), but caught sight of the restaurant sign on the return trip. We arrived about 2:00, so about an hour before check-in time, but the gentleman at the front desk gave us a parking pass so that we could ditch the car in the hotel lot and spend some time walking through Sedona while our room was made ready. The desk clerk called when the room was ready, so we walked back to get the key and get settled.
We were in building 4 and had suite 432 (I think). The room was great. We had a king-suite with a good size living room, kitchenette, good size bathroom and a nice bedroom. Only odd thing was that the bathroom did not connect to the bedroom, but rather was accessed through the kitchenette, but that was not an issue. There were flat screen TVs in both the living area and bedroom, plus a gas fireplace in the living area. And of course there was the view from the balcony. The vista from the balcony overlooks the beautiful red rocks that have helped to make Sedona famous. The view includes the formations known as “Snoopy” and “Lucy”.
There is a complimentary breakfast included with the stay. The buffet is located in the Orchards Restaurant, again located in front of the hotel and just s short walk from any of the buildings in the hotel complex. There is also a internet enabled computer in the lobby for guest use.
Even though this was just a one-night stay, we did enjoy our time in Sedona and at the Orchards Inn. The convenient location, great view and cozy room are all things that will lead us to stay in the Orchards Inn again when we next return to Sedona.
