... he had cereal & toast. After breakfast we got our stuff together & headed out to Red Rock state park which had been referred to us by a friend. The park was nice & close to the hotel so it was only a 10-15 min drive. We paid the entrance fee which was per person not per car like I'm used & then found parking. We went through their small visitors center which had a fun magnet board with animal pictures on it & then the names on table & you had to match them up. ...
... but very obvious. There is a trail outside the well along the Verde River where water is coming into the well and running into the river.

Hotel is OK. Front desk clerk is over-worked, and the printer was down. TV remote batteries were dead in my friend's room (203), and they never did get them replaced. I threw out the batteries and brought the remote to the front desk in the morning so the would HAVE to replace them. The shower in my room (201) was a trickle, and the shower head was in need of some CLR! The Hotel is old, and fairly clean. At least the hotel is across the street from the 15.Quince Restaurant, which was AWESOME!
