Travel Blogs from Sedona
Well, I see from the date, that I am behind in my story. All I can offer for an excuse is that I am not on my own schedule. Trust me. It isn't a schedule I would pick! Early luggage calls. One activity blending into another. Rush, rush, rush. Okay, where are we? Well, technically, we are in Arizona as I type this on the bus. We're on the way to the …
With a full day to sightsee in Arizona we headed north early heading for Sedona, Oak Creek Canyon and Flagstaff.
Heading north from Phoenix the landscape changed from Sonoran with the iconic saguaro cactus dotting the vistas to a barren high desert environment as we ascending to 6,000 ft elevation.

... the northwest and was in full beam by the time I returned to the Charger. I learned that these trails are normally heavily used by both hikers and mountain bikers but the weather kept most folks away. I only saw one older couple (twice) and a mountain biker. Just how I like it!
I strung together four different trails for a total hike of around 9 miles which I did in just under 4 hours. I was pretty beat though as this was my fourth straight day ...

Even on short notice we were able to all get an apartment there for the next two nights. I didn't really know anything about the town itself, but was happy to go with the flow. The drive there (managed to mostly stay awake during this one) was incredible and the town itself was really amazing - love it when you end up going ...
More red rock…you'd think I’d be tired of it at this point…haha, well it doesn’t amaze me as much as before, but there are some formations of interest in the Sedona area. All the stuff I saw was in the Red Rock Secret Mountain Wilderness (cool enough name?) and it is vast. I hiked almost 40 miles in three days, but I only covered a portion of the trails out here. The elevation here is only ...

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN PLUS Arroyo Roble Hotel & Creekside Villas Sedona
We just returned from a fantastic first trip to Arizona and rate our stay in Sedona as one of the highlights.
My daughter, husband and I just returned from a 4 night stay in Sedona, AZ. We booked at the Arroyo Roble (Best Western) and were extremely happy with the accomodations. We had a large one bedroom with a king bed and a double sofa bed that worked very well for us. The bathroom was enormous and had 2 separate sink areas, a separate toilet, and a over-sized shower and jacuzzi tub. It was laid out so well that 3 people could use the bathroom at once with privacy. In addition there was a wet bar area with sink, refrig and coffee maker. We also had a gas firplace that was easy and fun to use and a TV. The view outside the room of the red rocks was beautiful and we had a small patio with 2 chairs. We paid $179/night with a AAA discount (early April). The best feature was the hotel's accessibility to the "uptown Sedona" area. Easy walking distance to many shops and restaurants and the various Jeep tours. There was also a pool and exercise room and a free continental breakfast every morning until 9:30am. Do not confuse this hotel with the Best Western Inn, which is also in Sedona. We saw the Inn and it looked fine but not as conveniently located.
It had it all!
Not having stayed at many Best Westens in the past, I was a little skeptical in booking this hotel but after reading other reviews decided to give it a shot. We were very pleasantly surprised. The hotel was clean, decorated nicely, had beautiful grounds and great red rock views. It was also much more reasonably priced than other hotels in town that I researched in great detail. Had a wonderful stay in this beautiful town and a large part of that was because of this hotel.
Excellent view! Good breakfast. Great place to stay!
Spent two nights here over Easter, 2005. Our room was on the 1st floor, with GRASS right outside the door. The kids were able to play ball here!
Fitness center was great. Kids loved playing raquetball (for a fee) Views were fabulous! Room is pretty basic, but good sized. Able to walk to all shopping and restaurants. We were VERY happy with this hotel! Not a luxury stay, but great for a medium priced hotel! Great view from the pool, too! Would recommend the Pink Jeep tours, despite major hesitation about the price. Daniel our guide was very informative, very fun time!
We stayed 2 nights in the Arroyo Roble hotel. We booked 1 of the rooms that had a king bed, queen sofa sleeper, fireplace, and kitchenette that had refrigerator, sink, and coffee pot. The balcony was very private, and faced directly toward Snoopy Rock.
Great hotel - and it was pot luck from Tripadvisor!
I was booking blind! and there were not too many reviews of this hotel - I also was looking at the other Best Western but this seems to be the best one in the area. Me and my boyfriend went in October and wanted something nice but not too expensive with good facilities. This hotel was perfect for our needs - it was on the main tourist street with shops and somewhere to wander in the evening and within easy driving distance of surrounding area, no complaints at all and I would definitely recommend this hotel. It must be the handiest location of all the hotels -really well situated! Great stay and fantastic pool -i wish our stay had been longer!
Super views from room
Ideal location for the Red Rocks though they were covered in snow in early January. Nice, clean room with coffee maker & fridge and small balcony with view to rocks. Shops and restaurants close by. Strong smell of cigarette smoke in bathroom but room was OK. Room opens out straight on to the outside but not a problem in this area. Very good light breakfast included, friendly people. Would stay here again.
Beautiful grounds and views
In the center of Sedona. We stayed at this beautiful hotel on Sept. 25 after a 3 day hike in the Grand Canyon. What a fantastic place to stay and a real bonus is being able to use the clubhouse at Creekside Villas.
Great view in Sedona!
We spent 2 nights, June25th and June 26th 2004 at the Best Western Arroyo Roble Hotel in Sedona. The suite was clean and large enough for three adults and one child. The view was spectacular. Everyone was helpful, but very busy and crowded at the front desk. Would stay here again.
Husband and I and our two children stayed here one night April 5th, 2004. Above average: All rooms have a red rock view (did not see the Villa rooms), has both outdoor and indoor/outdoor pools (kids used the indoor/outdoor since it was raining), has free coffee, hot chocolate, hot cider, tea always available in small lobby w/fireplace, free continental breakfast, EXCELLENT location. Right across the street from Oaxaca (try their breakfast!) and only two blocks to the Cowboy Club.
