Historical Traveler Reviews Bell Rock Inn Sedona
Nice, quiet Inn
This Inn is a hotel converted to timeshares and rentals. We were disappointed that the one bedroom unit with their partial kitchen was not a kitchen. We expected a small kitchen with a small sink, refrigerator, small table, dishes, microwave, small stove. We discovered a plastic tub on the floor with dishes, no table, no stove, only a bathroom sink to wash the dishes, and no refrigerator. After complaining to the timeshare trading company and management, we were finally transferred to the original request of a two bedroom unit (as we had friends with us). We were then situated in a lovely, remodeled 2 bedroom unit with new furniture, 3 new televisions, nice round table, full kitchen. Then our fun began!
We booked the Bell Rock Inn through through a well-known Internet booking site, and got a great price ($30 less than quoted by the hotel directly). We had no problem with the booking, and the staff was very extremely helpful. They gave us a free upgrade. The location is very convenient, about 10 minutes south of the very congested Sedona, yet near some very nice restaurants. (Try the Desert Flower Bakery for breakfast, and the Cucina Rustica for dinner). The room was a suite, very comfortable for 2 people, with refrigerator, microwave, and coffee service. The grounds and pool are very neat. The property is on a main road, and though our room faced the highway, it was quiet. Free internet access is offered on lobby.
Peace and quiet! Wonderful!
I absoutely loved the location. It was outside of town and completely away from all the traffic and shopping. I was pleasantly surprised at the price. We were given the "bed & breakfast special" for $89 per night and it included 2 coupons to be used at the attached restaurant for up to $17 each day. The room was nice, but kind of small. We had 2 adults and 3 small kids. The pool was great too. If you've been to (uptown) Sedona and done all the shopping before but want to go back, I highly recommend this place!
The room was dirty, old and damp. For some reason there was constant water on the window and this caused the dampness in the room. In addition, even though we paid for a suite through expedia and we were given a regular room. When we asked about being compensated for the change all the staff said was "sorry we can't do that since you booked online". We will never stay there again.
Hotel, not a Suite!
The Bell Rock Inn & Suites is nothing but a glorified hotel. The room layout is adequate for 2 and lacking for a family of 4. The rooms amenities (microwave, small fridge & coffe pot) were afterthoughts as they were placed wherever there was available space. The fireplace splits the sleeping area from the living area, thus you must be on the floor to enjoy it.
Families on a budget...prepare
If you are on a budget, the Bell Rock Inn is "Ok". This area of Arizona
is expensive! The staff was polite, but didn't seem to enjoy having
families here. The website pictures are a bit deceptive...the pools are
much smaller than they appear. The picture of the hotel is deceptive
also...you cannot view Bell Rock properly unless you are in a
particular room. Some rooms face a parking lot, others face the
building next door, some face the highway. Still, you are in
Sedona..and it's all pretty nice.
Our room was a little rough around the edges, nothing "honeymoon" quality...but I was with kids, and they had the pool to themselves. Unless you come armed with buckets of cash...I suggest buying your food at the nearby IGA...or there is a Denny's on the East end of town. If you ask the locals, they will not volunteer this information easily...I believe they were all trained to represent Sedona as Upscale and expensive...and it IS.
There's not much we could find for families to do here...Slide Rock
Park was a huge disappointment...just a little rocky creek you slide
down. If we had to do it again...we would just drive through Sedona on
our way elsewhere, and not even spend the night. This Hotel was
definitely not a destination in itself. Just take your pictures, then
head for the Grand Canyon.
I booked the hotel on a travel website 1 month prior to my planned stay. 2 days prior to my arrival, I received a message for the travel website informing me the hotel had overbooked and would not offer any compensation or provide any alternative lodging. I was informed this had happened to all guests who had booked the hotel in the past month. Beware!
Complete relaxation I've been around the world and I would pick this hotel overall others. The staff is wonderful and the rooms are very comfortable and spacious. I would recomend it to everyone which I do as often as possible.
Loved the Bell Rock Inn! Had a suite with views all 3 times I stayed there. Layed back, close to everything. Dining used to be better before they remodeled. Love the pools and hammocks! Going back again in 2003!
Nice but not extraordinary.
I recently stayed at the Bell Rock Inn. I think we had a suite for about $80 a night. The room had two queen beds, couch, fire place, refrigerator, and microwave. The hotel also had Sedona Spa shampoos and conditioners that were very nice. The hotel was very clean with southwestern decor. The view from our room was okay. The Sky Ranch Lodge was recommended by some other tourists as having much better views. Overall the hotel was nice but nothing really extraordinary about it.

Travel Blogs from Sedona
Santa Fe to Sedona Driving into Sedona is the landscape highlight so far. Towering above the hilly streets of the town are skyscrapers of red rock, blue skies and puffy clouds. Serendipitous timing: the full harvest moon rising above the peaks at dusk.
Today, Carole and John Petrich flew from Seattle, (awakening at 4 am) and Amr and I flew from San Diego, and we all met at Phoenix airport, collected a rental car and drove to Sedona. We checked in to the Bell Rock Inn for 2 nights. The altitude in Sedona is over 6000 ft, higher than Denver, and will remain even higher when we go to Colorado and …
... the pool.
Our resort is right next to a really cute little southwestern market..Tlaquepaque, so we were able to walk over and have dinner with a great view. The temperature was still pretty hot at 9pm, but it was nice to be able to walk around and explore a little. This is not a sleepy town despite the shops closing around 8!
Today was a chance for us to get our bearings and figure some things out. We drove ...
... out of the park," the woman said. They were close to the finish. After our hike we walked through the El Tovar Hotel, which was really old-timey and cool. Wood and taxidermied animals heads hung throughout. Rustic but nice. Abe and I got back to the camper in time to make some breakfast for everyone, and then we drove to the Visitor's Center where we met John, a guide from Bright Angel Bicycles, who would take us on the Yaki Tour, an interpretive bike ride through a chunk ...
... took heaps of photos and hopefully they will try and do some of the scenery justice.
On the way back to the hotel, we stopped again - just the odd purchase or so and then back towards Flagstaff including the cutest wee cowboy boots for our nearly one year old gran baby, Lincoln.
We were moving along, trying to get ahead of the rain and a sheriff was parked on the ridge as we approached - he pulled out in front of Sean and nearly took him out - blind nerd!!!!
