We were traveling 7 days through AZ with 3 nights focused on Sedona for our 25th wedding anniversary. Not wanting to break the bank, but with most low range hotels in the $200's plus I found TheRoomsUpstairs. The reviews led me there and I am happy we booked. Kimberly is top notch with responding to emails and offering advice and recommendations. The building is a business downstairs and two rooms upstairs, free parking, and VERY easy access by walk to Uptown. There is a shared patio, with chairs and grill but we were alone so we had it to ourselves. Yes it overlooks another motel behind you, but so will most of the Uptown hotels. It's a quaint little town built into a mountain. And behind the motel is a gorgeous sunrise view of the mountains. The room is spacious, quiet, clean, the bathroom large with a soaking tub, and the kitchenette was all we needed for our 2 nights here....coffee, mini frig, sink and wine glasses. We were vacationing and if you go with the notion that you are barely in your room (go sightseeing, that's what Sedona offers) you will be happy. If you are doing the Pink Jeep tour, you can walk to their offices for pickup. (Under 5 mins). Right around the corner is Theias, a coffee/light breakfast place for FAR more affordable then downtown and she opens at 6:30 vs every place opens at 7 am. Right up Jordan road is Jordan Park and a GORGEOUS all morning hike up Brins Mesa. Absolutely a beautiful start to any day. Plenty of "glorified fast food" places to eat uptown and an easy drive to the "must see while in Sedona" $$$ places. (Except Enchantment which is a 25 minute drive. We found the Golden Goose up 89 which is a locals favorite and after a disappointing meal at Enchantment, we canceled L'Auberge (creek side dining would be rained out due to monsoon season and did I mention we were on a budget???) And we ended up eating a WONDERFUL dinner at Golden goose. Don't let exterior or location fool you. Sedona streets roll up early and they closed at 8pm for dinner. (?) as do most places by 9-10. I was very happy with choosing The Rooms Upstairs. For two couples who want privacy and no hotel crowds, this would be ideal. It is a dimly lit area and towards residential near Jordan Rd and as a female, I would not stay here alone. But with my husband I felt safe as should everyone visiting Sedona which has no crime rate. Close to town, 89, Slide rock! Pink jeep tours, restaurants, hikes, and all very affordable.
