Well The Hubs and I go to Spring Baseball in Surprise, AZ almost yearly. Yea Us!
In that Baseball Fever, we go to one of my favorite places on earth, Sedona.
While the setting is amazing, this little place wasn't. The room was just OK. There is a teeny tiny wading pool that's big enough for 4 and a hot tub under the stars that was nice. I'm a stickler on cleanliness and personal hygiene.... The woman preparing the free breakfast was, well she was dirty from top to bottom. She wore the same clothes for 3 days in a row and her hair was just horrible. That being said, I couldn't eat there.
I was grossed out!
You know, a B & B is supposed to be at a certain standard and Apple Orchard Inn wasn't. Hate to give a bad review to anybody!
Great location, close to the busy part of Sedona but Extremely quiet. We had a room that had access to the parking without having to go through the house. Breakfast was wonderful. each day it was different. The hot tub was outstanding!! The view from the patio deck by the dining room and pool deck where both really nice.
We had a room with a private patio and easy access to our car. Breakfast was served outside with a beautiful view and was delicious. There is a hot tub and a small cooling pool. The walk to town was about 8 to 10 minutes the flashlight on our iPhone came in handy. Bed was comfortable, small television, would stay here again.
This was the first time we stayed at the Apple Orchard Inn in Sedona. We stayed in the Mission Room and it was extremely nice and quiet. Jean, the owner, was incredibly helpful and such a great hostess. The breakfasts were wonderful, but the view from the back patio is breathtaking! They also have a small pool and hot tub. We will certainly stay here again when we visit Sedona.
Our greeting upon arrival was very friendly and informative. We were allowed to check in early. Directions to our room were very complete and accurate. Parking, even for a large SUV, was very good. The view of Oak Creek was stunning. The creek side walk required traversing the property of another resort but was beautiful. We sat along the creek watching ducks float in the pools. The resort property on the creek side allows pets to there were many owners with dogs. This caused some canine confrontations but nothing severe.
The hotel has different sections. The condition of our building and room was abysmal. The construction was old and dated. The exterior is in need of staining. The outside door did not fit well into the frame. There was approximately 1/4 gap between door edge and frame allowing in wind, dust, noise, smells, etc. The door moved loudly when the heat turned on and off. The pillows were very uncomfortable--a variety to suit different needs was not available. The smell upon entering the room was that of institutional disinfectant--very strong and malodorous. The couch and stuffed chair were very worn and dirty. There was very little support in the couch which allowed for significant sagging. Baseboard tile was loose and falling. The concrete/adobe hearth in front of the fireplace was chipped. However, the gas fireplace turned on immediately and worked well. The remainder of the furniture was old, worn, chipped and scuffed in spots. The carpet appeared somewhat new but dirty. The draperies were new, pretty and in good repair. The hanging wall art was nice but institutional. The overall size and décor of the living room just didn't "fit". It seemed basic and institutional while lacking a cozy feel. The toilet and bathroom counter was very low--old and dated. The deck was small but very nice. There is a privacy wall separating the decks of adjacent rooms but we were able to hear detailed conversation of our loud neighbors. We left early the following morning and were able to partake of the very limited continental breakfast.
