Historical Traveler Reviews A Sunset Chateau Sedona
Great place...horrible breakfasts
The Sunset Chateau was a quiet, nicely decorated, and spacious B&B with a great view of the rocks all around. The friendly owners also made sure you were comfortable and try to attend to your needs.
One complaint is that the breakfasts were awful. Not sure who was to blame, either the cook or the guests not accustomed to their "fusion" dishes, but some of it was just inedible. Hoping that they've since hired another chef. As a suggestion, maybe a more varied buffet table would be better.
Finally, A Home Away from Home!!!
I love Sedona and have been going there for years. But until now, I haven't found a place to stay where I felt comfortable, pampered, among friends and ... in paradise! I had a room with a view of the majestic big red rock mountains which was fantastic. In the morning, I would often sit out on my balcony, reading a great book, and listening to the sound of rippling water -- Now that's a vacation! (Yes, they even have a "stream" running into a pond, as well as a heated pool and jacuzzi.)
And to top it all, the breakfasts were varied and top notch. Best of all the family that runs the chateau made me feel like family too. I can't say enough about it. Thank you for making my vacation just right. And of course, I'll be back!
Beautiful Views, Friendly Hosts
We stayed in a luxury 2 room suite which was very nice with a kitchenette, fireplaced living room, bedroom and large bathroom. The place was very clean, although it would be nicer if all the decor was done in the Western theme rather than a mismatch of pictures, nick nacks etc. The dining area is a bit over done with too much "stuff" around. Once again it would be much nicer if only the Western decor was used to stay in keeping with the AZ atmosphere. Inn keepers were very pleasant and accomadating. Breakfast was fair.
A Perfect Escape
The oversized accomodations, the breakfasts, the hospitality, the views.....it all just added up to a wonderful weekend getaway.
Nice view, terrible food
We stayed in the Sunset Chateu one night and really enjoyed our large room with a beautiful view of the red rocks. Our toddler was entertained by all the room decorations and the sculptures in the garden courtyard. The only disappointment was the breakfast (a version of huevos rancheros) which was absolutely terrible. I think that the eggs were powdered. The rice was soupy and the salsa tasteless. The coffee was undrinkable. The waitstaff was unaccomodating and ungracious. My 1.5 daughter was not brought anything to eat.It is not difficult to make huevos rancheros and breakfast is an essential component of a bed and breakfast. The sunset chateau needs to hire a more competent cook.
The website has great photos of their rooms and purported views. Do not be fooled. What they do not show is that just down the hill is the "Sunset Trailer Park" and the main building ( and most expensive "villa" is right to the road. Trucks and trollies going up and down all night.).
Not a bad place, just not what is advertised. Food is average at best and the last day actually chose to eat at the airport because the previous two days were underwhelming.
The problem is that it was relatively expensive for a place with only moderately competent housekeeping. When checking in they actually attempted to charge me $240.00 more that the confirmation had stated.
If you are going to spend $325-375 for a place go to the Enchantment Resort and take their B&B package, or the Amara. Believe me, they are far more friendly venues.
We stayed here as a family of 4 for 3 nights. We had a lovely clean garden room, which had a separate sitting room with TV, and a small kitchen, and clean bathroom with a good shower. Breakfast was excellent, and you can sit on the terrace to eat, with a wonderful view. Our children loved the pool, and the hot tub was great. The view from the terrace above the pool is just amazing. The B+B was very quiet, but was an easy drive to restaurants nearby, as well as supermarkets. Sedona is lovely, and a great base to visit the Grand Canyon.
We would definitely stay here again.
I spent two days here and was just thrilled with the views ( from every room) and the wonderful breakfast. The rooms are clean and colorful. The staff are helpful and engaging. Would stay again and again............
Fabulous Inn with Fantastic Views
We just returned from 5 nights at Sunset Chateau with our 8 year-old and it was one of the best B&Bs we have ever stayed in. Each room is a full suite and they have two kinds. Luxury suites, which are a little more fancy in decoration and have jacuzzi tubs and computer hook-up and a kitchenette and country suites which are also beautifully decorated and have a full kitchen. We stayed in country suite #19 and it had gorgeous views of the red rocks - capital butte and coffeepot. Each morning they serve you are great breakfast in their dining room, beautifully decorated and again those wonderful views. They have a lovely outdoor patio, as well as a large common area outside with hammocks, picnic tables, a pond and a waterfall. It is in west Sedona and easy access to everything. It is very quite. We never heard our neighbors. And it is so reasonably-priced. Our country suite was $149 and the luxury suites were $199. I think the rates go up $10 starting April 1. This place is a true gem. I looked at almost all the places to stay in Sedona and was thrilled with Sunset Chateau.
A friendly family, a pleasant experience
My wife and I visited in June 2003 during our 25th Anniversary trip to Arizona. The family and staff were very friendly and Breakfast on the patio area shared with other guests was a fun start to every day.
Cabins were clean and views spectacular. Loved it and will visit again

Today we did very little. It was fantastic. We started with a proper breakfast, finally did that laundry we needed to do, then drove towards town. We were on a quest for a scenic overlook that I had read about, and got near it only to discover that the access road was not suitable for passenger vehicles. After driving on it anyway for about 100 yards, I decided that I ...
... The final morning revealed a very different landscape out of our now familiar picture windows in the observation car. Rolling hills and the Allegheny Mountains, rivers and valleys (including the Potomac River Valley), fertile spring forests all dotted with very picturesque houses met our gaze. This bucolic scenery continued as we travelled through the day and into the afternoon, crossing the State lines from Illinois to Ohio ...
... stay in Sedona. The most memorable for us was the Palatki ruins and pictographs located about 20 miles from Sedona. The ruins date between 1100 to 1300 AD when the Sinagua people built and lived in them. The other ruins we saw also dated approximately within this period. It is believed that the Sinagua people later assimilated into the Hopi and Yuvapai tribes. The pictographs which were nearby but ...
... problem was that they needed to be warmed up in a micro and concrete tent situations don't exactly provide that luxury. Plan B was a gas station, not only to fill up for our trek across the desert, but to buy juice and coffee so we figured that gave us free use of the pit stop micro. It actually worked great and we all enjoyed our sweet, gooey treat on the curb.
Now that we were nourished, it was time to get educated. We headed ...
... snow on them in the distance. Unfortunately Sedona has had a Wildfire burning in one of the Canyons so lot of smoke around. Didn't get any of the rain we had earlier in the day. We didn't arrive here until after dark(8pm). Eyes peeled for Elk on the road after dark... Saw none of those either. We finally arrived and thankfully the hotel has free Wifi, it is Very ...
