Sedona Real Inn and Suites
Travel Blogs from Sedona
The next morning we headed for Sedona. We could have just continued on home but we just can't bypass Sedona. We drive down through the canyon on 89A and stopped at Indian Gardens, right next to Garlands Jewelry store. This place has wonderful sandwiches and would be great to pick one up if you are hiking West Fork. We took out sandwiches out back …
... her now or later??
By now, I felt ready to handle breakfast, so we ambled up to a Mexican place and sat on the pavement to have coffee and I had a quesadilla, which was mega yum, before we drove on out of the town, just to see, turning round at the far end and stopping at the Sedona Art Centre where they had a gallery with some fabulous things in it, a watercolour exhibition of Sedona artists, a watercolour workshop and next door, a Yard Sale!
... away and pretty much refused to take it off all day.
I could have stayed several more days in Flagstaff. There were nice trails in the Coconino National Forest that passed right by the campground. And there were several other things nearby that I think would have been neat to see (Meteor Crater, Bearizona, etc.), but every one was excited to head up to the Grand Canyon. So on Easter morning we loaded up and headed that way.
... of the vortex. Along the trail, we saw stacks of prayer rocks, either alone or in groupings, that looked a lot like inukshuks to us. :)
Well, we walked and walked and walked, and climbed and climbed. We saw people who told us the end of the trail was about 1/2 hour away, and 1/2 hour later, we saw different people who told us the end was about 1/2 hour away. It gets dark here at 5:45 pm, so we had to be careful not to hike in too far and end ...
... Here is a description I found from a website:
"Upflow vortexes are sometimes referred to as electric vortexes and as such, Bell Rock is reported to produce sensations of empowerment. A visit to Bell Rock can help you soar to new heights by channeling the earth’s energy into and through you, helping you to soar to new heights and take on challenges that might previously have seemed beyond your reach."
I don't know if there is ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sedona Real Inn and Suites
Great for a family!
We stayed at the Sedona Real in mid-May. For the price, it just can't be beat! There were for of us - my husband and I, our 14 year old son and 8 year old daughter. We had a Queen Suite (2 queen beds plus a pull out couch) which was pretty good sized with a gas log fireplace and a nice patio with chairs. This is not a 5 star resort, but it really has all we could ask for. It had a small refrig, a coffeemaker, there was a nice continental breakfast served each morning. There was a concierge with lots of useful information and brochures. True, the pool is small, but it is clean, uncrowded, and well maintained. The hot tub is nice, and the lounge chairs are comfortable. The hotel has a small but nice workout room and a guest laundry. All this at about half the price of the "resorts" a little closer to downtown.
The property is overall very well maintained, clean, and the staff are very pleasant and helpful.
It is located on the edge of town - a little too far to walk to the shops/restaurants. But it was only a 5 minute drive, adn parking downtown is not a problem.
We would certainly stay here again!
Great place to stay in Sedona
Great place to stay at reasonable prices. Very clean, and everything you could need. (microwave, fridge, hairdryers (2 sinks and hair dryers in our suite. Necessary with two woman in the same room)and coffee pot. Continental breakfast was good with lots of choices for a quick simple breakfast. Add a pool, and you have a wonderful, reasonably priced place to stay with your family.
Very quiet also, considering it's closeness to highway 89a. Staff was very pleasant and considerate as well. My son was happy to see razors and toothbrushes in the vending machine and the washer/dryer that was available as well.
Overall a very pleasant stay.
Well worth it!!
Extremely clean and very welcoming, wish we could have stayed longer. Fantastic spacious room with sofa and kitchenette. This was the first hotel in 10 days to have had a wardrobe!! We had stayed in the Grand Hotel in Tusayan by the Grand Canyon for $149 and you have trouble finding space to put your suitcase down. Would definately recommend the Sedona Real. The previous review about it being by a main road, well even if you stayed right in the heart of Sedona, you will still be right by the main road.
A great place to stay..
The Sedona Real was a perfect place to stay on our first trip to Sedona. We had a large, very comfortable suite with king bed and fireplace in the living room area. The staff was friendly and we felt welcome as soon as we arrived. We chose the Real after searching the internet since we weren't familiar with Sedona. It was a great choice.
This would be a good place for families.
Noisy and On Main Road
We expected a bed and breakfast like place in a peaceful setting. The Sedona Real Hotel is next to a trailer park and a main road where there was noise in the early morning. We arrived on a icy/snowny day and nearly fell down the stairs since the railings were icy and the steps very slippery. Each night of our 3 nite visit we had to deal with ice.
The staff was friendly but did nothing about the icy stairs. Our double king room was spacious but we felt it was overpriced and there were much better hotels in the area offering nicer accomodations at better prices.
The hotel is located on the main strip of Sedona, but it is not walking distance from the hot attractions. Overall it is very nice. Clean, comfortable, and the whirlpools in room are great. If you want to be right in the middle of Sedona this hotel might not be for you, but if you dont mind driving a minute or two you will be just fine. The staff were also very helpful, and they were nice.
It's the ONLY place to STAY in Sedona!!! Wonderful!!
My husband and I stayed at the Sedona Real in one of the Royal King Patio/Deck suites. It was wonderful! There was a door from the bedroom that led out to the pool area, which gives an amazing view of the Sedona red rocks nearby. And at night, when it was chilly, we curled up by the gas fireplace in the living room. It was really nice to have access to a kitchen, too, since we were on a long trip touring Nevada and Arizona, and it was a welcomed change to be able to make a bowl of cereal for breakfast, or heat up some left over pizza that we had delivered to the suite. The suite layout gave us a lot of privacy. You can't hear the people "upstairs" or "next door" as you do in other hotels. It's as if you are living in a townhouse away from home. The staff was courteous and recommended some wonderful local restaurants for us to try. They even mapped out a tour for us so we could explore Oak Creek Canyon on our own! I will always stay at the Sedona Real whenever I travel to Sedona, AZ.
Simply the best !!!!
My wife and I spent a week at the Sedona Real. We highly recommend it to everyone. Everything about this Inn is first class. From the location to the accomodations. Plenty of room and privacy. Great continental breakfast. First rate concierage. Heiped us to plan a memorable week. Impressive building ; great swimming pool ; great supportive cast maintaining the building and grounds - quick response to any request. We will return
Disappointed in Sedona
The "suites" were very small as was the pool. The location was on a very, very noisy, brightly-lit main drag - so much for the peace and quiet of the desert. The location also featured a run-down mobile home park. The free breakfast was just adequate. The place seemed like a remodeled low-end motel. The people who worked there were generally friendly and everything was very clean.
Real the real deal
We were recently in Sedona with our two kids and the Sedona Real worked out well for us. As a suite hotel, we had a nicely furnished room with two beds, two tvs and a small kitchen area with sink, microwave and refrigerator. The hotel was very convenient to several hiking trails and restaurants and in a less congested area of town. The concierge was a nice touch. She was able to help us plan our days and recommend restaurants including keeping a complete listing of area restaurant menus on hand. Great views of the red rocks although we had to look across a four lane road to see them. The free continental breakfast was well done. Not extravagant but a very nice, friendly place to stay.
