      Historical Traveler Reviews Southwest Inn at Sedona

      Red Rock beauty, overpriced accommodations

      from

      We did not realize that it is virtually impossible to find a hotel/motel that does NOT have a magnificent view of the red rocks in Sedona. We booked the pricey Southwest Inn through the website and were extremely disappointed. Desk clerk was rude--our arrival seemed to interrupt her telephone conversation. "Sumptuous buffet breakfast" was a cafeteria-style room with a toaster, boxes of cereal, juice boxes and bowl of fruit. The outdoor hot tub was filthy--none of the guests would go near it. Housekeeping staff was very friendly, did a very thorough job. The room was nice, fireplace and private terrace was a nice touch, but next time in Sedona, we will find less expensive accommodations and enjoy the view without the rude desk clerk being annoyed at our presence and trying to talk us into restaurants the hotel had a "relationship" with.

      It Was Alright, Enjoyed The Breakfast, More Than Room

      from

      My wife and I live in the Phoenix area so we go to beautiful Sedona almost once a year. We stayed at this hotel in September 2003. After having a bad experience at another hotel located directly across the street about a year earlier I wanted to give the Southwest Inn a try. What made me want to stay here is that it only has like 23 rooms. They are non-smoking. However, The staff at check-in seemed too eager to get us to change rooms. We had booked the one with the jacuzzi in the room and they wanted us to take a suite with-out a jacuzzi for the same price. Not a bad deal, but we were on vacation and we wanted the jaccuzi !

      Anyways, my only complaint is the concierage was non-existent when we wanted information and the front desk although helpful didn't seem too interested in seeing us having a good time.

      There is no restaurant on-site so we drove about 20 miles to Cottonwood which is a awesome town and enjoyed Sizzler !

      Finally, the price we paid $133 plus tax per night is way overpriced. I would say a fair price would be $99 per night for the room with the Jacuzzi and $133 for the suite. The only reason I say $99 for the jacuzzi room is because the complimentary breakfast was very delicious, plentiful and I would say only about 5 people at the most at any given time were up there so it wasn't crowded !!!

      I would not stay at this hotel again unless their rates drop to my recommendations.

      Hospitality begins here!

      from

      My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Southwest Inn. The price was very reasonable and the the service was terrific. The huge continental breakfast included in the price of the room included everything you could want from sweets to oatmeal and especially fresh made waffles! The concierge was very helpful with recommendations and directions. Couldn't ask for more!

      Great View, Great Room, Great Staff

      from

      To wake up in the morning refreshed, and then walk out of the room to a breathtaking view. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Would stay there again.

      Too Overpriced

      from

      I chose this hotel based on the star ratings on hotels. Although the place was clean, I could not have been more disappointed with the the room, and the size of the hotel in general. We were hoping to be in a hotel with some running space for our two year old daughter, but the Inn was so small, the only place she could have played was in the parking lot or the busy street. Uck! Though the service was good, I felt that we were misled, and were overcharged for such mediocre acommodations. Look around for other hotels, especially if you have children.

      Overrated & Overpriced

      from

      The best attribute of this hotel is its cleanliness. It's very clean. Aside from cleanliness, the hotel's other attributes fall to average at best. My room, one of the facility's best, had only a small refrigerator but no microwave and no silverware. A real turn off should one wish to heat up a snack or left over meal. Additionally, the facility has no restaurant, a major turn off to the facility's high price. The continental breakfast is a joke to a facility at this price level. A total failure in terms of scope and quality and not worth one's time or effort. I opted for breakfast at nearby restaurants. Overall, I agree with the other review that with some detailed research, one can find a better place for the money, because at this facility you're basically paying for a hyped up atmosphere that fails to deliver any real substance.

      A high-priced, low quality motel. Not worth it at all.

      from

      My husband and I visited Sedona last year. It was my first and last time ever!!! We stayed at the Southwest Inn. What a bunch of hype over a "motel 6" quality motel. The lower rooms have a small table and chair on the "lanai". IT OVERLOOKS THE PARKING LOT...HOW QUAINT. The rooms are marginal, and in ours the fireplace didn't work and there was no hot water. The "view" from the Southwest Inn is no better than any view from anywhere in Sedona. (With the exception of the disgusting parking lot). The highly touted breakfast is a few rolls, muffins and some watered down orange juice and coffee/tea. Nothing special and certainly not worth the price. Very disappointing. Go to Bryce Canyon in Utah...it's much nicer for far less money. And the views are more astonishing and beautiful.

      First and Last Visit

      from

      The staff was about as friendly and warm as the border patrol. The rooms were clean and the breakfast offered was nice but the hype doesnt live up to the delivery. They better check their diamond rating and do some polishing!!!!

      Ok to stay

      from

      I stayed at the Inn in June '03. The place was very clean and the pool was nice, but it was just OK for the price. I think a bit more research could provide you with better accomodations for the same price. It did have a great 'breakfast room' with all the juice, coffee, muffins, fruit & bagels you could eat. So don't rule it out, but definitely compare it with other places that are going for the same price or less.

      We loved this Inn

      from

      We stayed at the inn in April. It was well located. The rooms were large, with a beautiful gas fireplace, hot tub and small pool. The grounds are only average but the general atmosphere makes up for this. We stayed there for our 30th wedding anniversary. They left a card (signed by the entire staff) and a bottle of sparkling cider with champagne glasses, in our room. The staff was always helpful and attentive. The views of the redrocks were stunning. We will definitely return.

      Kate wanted to revisit Tlaquepaque shopping centre Sedona Arizona, arts and crafts village [linkwww.tlaq.com ] where she and Sisi had gone last night. It was very photogenic, with fountains and statues and little shops, a dear little chapel and some very picturesque views. A little bit twee maybe, but a good place for a wander.

      We ended up being at Slide Rock longer than we had planned, so we skipped some of the other stuff we had heard about and went on to do some hiking. There's a highway south of Sedona that winds through the red rock formations and has parking for trails throughout the area. We stopped at Bell Rock and hiked around there for a couple of hours. The hike was beautiful and really relaxing. It was neat to see the how the light changed the colors of ...

      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.

      A second ear popping experience occurred during the long and beautiful descent into ...

      Our 2 week road trip and TA meet up actually began a week early at home in Sedona. Our fellow TA DE, Esty, came to visit us at Sedona because she wanted to hike at Devils Bridge. It's a relatively short hike to a dramatic natural bridge in the wilderness west of town. Fortunately she brought her Jeep so we were able to access the trail head, rather than parking another mile away at the end of the pavement on the fire road. The recent monsoonal rains in northern AZ ...
