Historical Traveller Reviews of Sedona Summit Resort Hotel

Resort was great

from mjp51us
Me, my husband, and 15 yr old daughter stayed from 8/6/06-8/13/06. The resort is very large and spread out. We were lucky to have stayed in Building #5, Rm 119. We were close to the adult pool and family pool. We chose the adult pool. There were only at the most 8 people there at one time. We were close to the Activity Room which we attended a couple of times. The lobby was close too, which we used to get one of their two computer for the internet. They charge if you want it in your room. Check in was not problem, but we choose not to get our free gift as we knew that was a lure for timeshare info.

When we opened the door to our suite, it was a very good laid out room. From the entry way to the right was a very large kitchen. Walk directly into a large room which had a dinning room table for 4 and dividing the kitchen was a bar type divider with 2 stools. Walking from the table was a large living room with couch/queen sleeper and one chair and large coffee table. Large TV/DVD/Stero in a tv cabinet. To the left of that was a fireplace. Then sliding glass door to small private patio. The bedroom had a king size bed with tv/cabinet with 3 drawers below. A large walkin closet with a safe. Then a large bathroom with a large glass stall shower, jacuzzi bath tub and nice one sink area with great lighting over mirror. Lots of towels. Pool towels were under the sink. The room was southwestern deco. Very pretty. We were very happy with the room.

Only problem was the coffee pot lid was broken and would not screw down to keep coffee hot, it was like a craft. We called housekeeping about getting a new one but they never brought one to us. We called two times. No biggie. The resort is in the process of building more buildings (Phase 5). So having to hear the machines (below the adult pool) was annoying when you wanted peace and quite. Was very happy with the resort in all. Would stay there again.

The red rocks of Sedona

from rwdw
My wife and I had a great time at the Sedona Sumit. We have never been to Arizona before and had the option of coming to Sedona and took it.
We stayed in a studio for one week. When we arrived we were directed to the concerige desk. I told the front desk clerk that we had a long flight and wanted to just go to our room. The clerk told me that when we had time to be sure to drop by for my free gift.
Our studio was in the newest section of the property. It was clean and well stocked with towels and kitchen ware. We did find out that the TV did not work. I called the front desk and there was someone there to fix it in 20 minutes. This was at 5:00 on a Saturday night.
One thing you need to know up front is this is a time share. We did since we exchange our unit with Interval. This is why I blew off the FREE GIFT. The concerige also called me that night wanting us to drop by. I told them we would be down there later, then didn't go. They never called back.
There are 2 family pools and 1 adult pool. This was nice. There are also gas grills scattered around the properity.
Each unit has a patio/balcony. They are 4 by 8 foot. Ours came with 2 chairs and a small table. One person could see the rocks in the distance while the other could see the parking lot. Some of the newer units have better views. Some of the older units have a views of a bush or wall.
Over all this is a nice quite place. There are childeren at the family pools and the play areas, but they were not a distraction. Many people also advantage of the grills at night.
Over all this would be a properity that I would go back to.

Awesome Red Rocks

from jjc666
We just returned from a wonderful vacation at the Sedona Summit. As a member of Sunterra, I used my points to exchange. I booked a two bedroom, which was a one bedroom with a connecting studio. The rooms were nice, not overly large, but they did have a rollaway, which is a plus when you have an odd number. All the faciliities were clean. We were near the main pool, and a children's play area, which we enjoyed.
We had a total of 9 people in our party, and anywhere we went, excursion, restaurant etc., all were very accomodating.
There is construction going on across the street from the resort, but we were so busy, we would be out most of the day, and by the time we returned, they would be done for the day.
The kids enjoyed the pool, and gameroom. I enjoyed the continental breakfast on the weekend, and the complimentary coffee station all week long. The concierage was helpful for dinner reservations, but many of our activities, I had booked in advance.
Highly recommend: Pink jeep tour, Schnebly Hill, shopping in uptown, float trip down the Colorado, Slide rock, Bell rock, Cathedral rock and dinner at Dahl & Deluca.

Good place to stay

from A TripAdvisor Member
My family and I stayed at the Sedona Summit for a week in late February to early March and loved it. Sedona has so much to see and do. The room was very clean and nice, we had a view of the "adult only pool" which was heated and very relaxing as my son and I used it every night before we retired for the evening. At 8:30 pm in late February the water was perfect and the hot tub even better. The heater for one of the family pools was not operational however. The room was very spacious and the two person jetted tub was a nice touch in a large bathroom. My son said the pull out couch bed was comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked and clean and the whole complex seemed very quiet during this time of year. Springtime was definatly comming to Sedona. One other note, we left some stuff in the unit on check out and the Summit kept them and mailed them to us right away, great service the staff was exceptional. I would stay here again for sure but, it is an older crowd especially in February.

Heard some bad news that said the airport resturant will close after May because they want an "upscale" resturant there.

Fun in the sun...avoid the staff at all cost.....

from martha
Very nice place to stay, but the staff is obnoxious.

We checked in got our keys and said you must check in with the concierge. WE have been around time-shares so we blew this off and went to our nice room. Only to be called by a nice, but pushy women telling us they had a special gift to come to concierge desk. I said no thanks.

The next day we decided to take a hike. Therefore, I stopped by the concierge desk to ask for a map of the trails. The woman said, oh you have not check with us we have a special gift. I said thank, but I just needed a map. She said wanted my name…okay gave her my name. Oh the woman two seats away can help you, okay. Step down to the woman same song and dance. Okay can I get a map, not until you check in and take our “awesome welcome gift." Fine give me the gift and a map.

After a five-minute lecture on how great the place was, I got the map and six post cards as my welcome gift.

Well I avoided the concierge desk the rest of the trip, but they did call me everyday.

My wife and I went to the hot tube every night and it was deader then a door nail. One night I took a beer with me and as my wife an I talked this big security guard came running up…NO GLASS!! YOU MUST STOP DRINKING IT in a drill Sgt. voice. So I took it over to the trash. He said a few other things as if I could be kicked out of the resort and be arrested. Now mind you I am a 45-year-old man not drunk and we are the only one in the pool. Then he hovered about the next hour around watching to see if I pulled the beer out of the trash. I just thought he could have just asked me to throw it away in a nice manner.

The two bedroom suits are nice, but funky. They are really a studio and a one bedroom combined.

A road divides the resort into two sides. It outside is very dangerous. There is a high school and college down the road and cars come whipping through the area. So, if you have kids beware!!

The staff liked to smoke in front of our room, so we got the fresh smell of smoke every day.

The pools heater still was not working, you would think in the land of pools they could have this fixed in a week.

Overall, there are other timeshares in the area, I would try them first, but it an okay place…just avoid all the staff.

Already wanting to return

from estrata1
Husband and I enjoyed our first trip to Arizona, starting first with visits to Tucson followed by hubby participating in marathon in Phoenix. Travelled from Phoenix to Sedona staying from 1/15 through 1/20th at Sedona Summit. We are Sunterra timeshare owners and was placed in a 1 BR with a view. We were also asked to attend the timeshare presentation and was persuaded to do so in order to obtain additional points for the vacation club. The presentation was informative and not pushy. We declined any upgrades and left in the allotted 1 1/2 hours as promised.

We felt our accomodations to be very spacious and comfortable with the gas fireplace and two person jacuzzi being among the highlights. Like the last reviewer, we agree that the location being on the outskirts of the western end of town was one of its best features as prefer to avoid the crowds. January was an ideal time to visit in Sedona for the same reason and to hike without the heat and avoid contact with undesirable critters such as scorpions and snakes.

Agree with all of the suggestions given by the previous reviewer with the following additions:

1. The airport restaurant also has an excellent breakfast in a small, family style restaurant and modest prices (comparably to other restaurants) and worth going for the city view.

2. Consider taking the Verde Canyon railroad tour when visiting in Jerome. We purchased the 1st class tickets (a little pricey, but worth it) and was placed in living room style seating with almost unlimited foods - chicken wings, vegetable rolls, etc. One could walk out into the outdoor car for pictures and better views of the canyon and eagles nests.

3. Ask for Kimba if taking the Pink Jeep tour to the Grand Canyon and pay the additional money to have lunch at the El Tovar lodge. Kimba was a delightful guide who was knowledgable, but set a relaxing and charming atmosphere. Lunch at the El Tovar was amazing with incredible food. The tour and lunch was one of the best bargains of the trip.

We were so impressed with the beauty and variety offered by Sedona, we are already planning on inviting extended family and returning for a longer vacation soon!

Great January Weekend in Sedona

from LUVNCAROLINA
We returned to the Summit for our third visit. We do not come here because we expect it to be a Hyatt or Marriott. We do not expect to be happy only if we get a room with a red rocks view (this was our first visit with such a view). We come to the Summit because it provides very comfortable rooms with kitchens which suit us fine when we spend the late evening through breakfast hours inside and at a reasonable fare. The main reason we come to Sedona is to be outside to enjoy the beauty of the area, the trails to hike and explore, the shops and restaurants to visit. At the Summit we enjoy the quiet setting and privacy of the rooms. We like that it sets high just west of town away from the hustle and bustle. It is dark there at night and the stars may be enjoyed. The property is safe at all hours. We have enjoyed the pools and hot tubs on prior visits but did not use them this time. They are heated for January comfort. You may not be aware initially, but this is a timeshare "resort" - a loosely used term. You can rent a studio, one BR or two BR. They are spacious, comfortably decorated, with kitchens reasonably stocked. During our stays we have had consistently good service from the concierge and staff and always receive discounts at local restaurants. For a nice quiet dinner with white tablecloths where you can hear each other talk -go to Judi's in town ($15-25).

Suggestions:
1)If you plan to browse the parks and back roads get a Red Rocks Pass first.
2)If you are not an "outback hiker" but like to walk - do not fret, there are many walking trails in the area. We enjoy the West Fork Trail north of town on R-89 above Sliding Rock - ask the concierge. It follows the base of a mountain along a creekbed which you cross several times (pick up a walking stick). Quiet and lovely.
3)Go up to the Sedona Airport and enjoy the view!! Also, they serve a nice lunch - cheap. For the bold - you can also take a biplane ride - I hate roller coasters but this was fun - no loops.
4)Go to Jerome - about 45 mins west and hanging on the side of the mountain. Walk the two streets and shops - old mining town. About a 1/2 day trip. Have lunch at the Red Rooster - great soups and sandwiches.
5)Grand Canyon - about 2hrs away and a very manageable day trip - done several times. For extra fun - take the train out of Williams, AZ, west of Flagstaff.

Sedona is a great place to visit. The Summit is a pleasant and relaxing place to stay. Relax and enjoy - we do.

Loved the Sedona Summit

from nlg
We just returned from our trip to Sedona. We stayed
a week at the Sedona Summit Resort January 7-14th.
We booked a studio through RCI and upgraded to a
one bedroom for $125. Our unit was very clean and
we thought it was a great value for the money.
We didn't take the "timeshare" tour-we just said
we weren't interested. We didn't have a view unit,
but we could still see the Red Rocks from our living
area and bedroom.

There are several hiking trails within walking distance from the Summit and we enjoyed them each day. There are also many wonderful restaurants near the Summit.

Beware; I saw the downside...

from BagsRPakd
I know Sedona well, but this was my first stay at this site, or at any Sunterra property. What is distressing about the Summit is that the experience can be either great or completely so-so. I traded in, for a week in a 1-bdrm. I ended up with a view of a parking lot rather than the nearby mountains. The kitchen counter was badly damaged in two areas. Two light bulbs were burned out. The blanket for the extra bed was horrible; some old frayed odd-feeling synthetic. One morning the maid cleaned the unit next door and left a pile of cleaning rags right on the sidewalk that led to our two units. The path was not well-lit; this could have been treacherous. When they did my mid-week cleaning, they neglected to empty the (full) kitchen garbage. I took the tour - curious - and was shown a "deluxe" unit that they're touting, for increased trading value - they use a point system. Granite counters, stainless steel appliances, decorator touches; it was beautiful. But then why also have these Motel 6-type units like the one I was in? I felt like I was in a bait-and-switch operation, and ended up feeling slighted and resentful that I'd been assigned a poor unit for an entire week's visit. My salesperson was a delightful young woman, early twenties, but unable to answer questions about ownership legalities.
If you're a gambler, you may feel lucky enough to give this place a try and hope you get one of the better units. Personally, I wouldn't go back and the experience has pretty much put me off looking at another Sunterra property anywhere. When I check into a Marriott or Hyatt, I know ahead of time how satisfied I'm going to be.

Wonderful vacation to Sedona

from JanEveOhio
My husband and I and two female friends vacationed in Sedona from December 3-10, 2005. We stayed at the Sedona Summit Resort. The resort is beautiful. We had two studio rooms. The bathroom is huge and the partial kitchen was very handy and the bed was comfortable.

We made the mistake of letting them talk us into attending their timeshare sales pitch. Don't be fooled that this only takes 90 minutes...we were there for 3 hours. And all we got from it was $14 off each of our 4 Verde Canyon Train Ride tickets (from $39.95 down to $26.00). We feel we wasted a whole day on this because our appointment wasn't until noon and it lasted until 3:00. That didn't leave much time to plan an excursion.

Sedona is a 2 1/2 hour drive from Phoenix. It's also a 2 1/2 hour drive from Sedona to the Grand Canyon. We visited the Grand Canyon, Jerome, Montezuma's Castle and Montezuma's Well, Verde Canyon Train Ride (4 hours, from Clarkdale to Perkinsville and back), Church of the Holy Cross, a vortex at Bell Rock, and a vortex at the Sedona Airport (none of us felt anything from the vortexes), and we drove all over the place looking at the scenery and taking hundreds of pictures. It was a great trip.

The places we ate and would recommend to others are:
COFFEE POT RESTAURANT (family run, serves breakfast and lunch)- excellent breakfast here and good prices.
CAFE JOSES (by McDonald's in a strip mall) - They have daily specials (loved the lasagna $5.49), very reasonable prices and family operated.
PICAZZO'S - excellent gourmet pizzas, huge salads. Plenty for sharing.
ORCHARDS (in Uptown Sedona) - the spaghetti with meatballs was excellent and huge and only $8.95.

If you have any questions about the Sedona Summit Resort or the town of Sedona and the vicinity, please feel free to email me.

Top Local Tips for Sedona

Verde Canyon Railroad Take this train ride. The scenery is great. The train ride is about 4 hours round trip, so not too long or short.

Sedona Arizona Red Rocks Take the Pink Jeep "Broken Arrow" tour. It is well worth it!

Terrific Informal Family Restaurant with Great View Eat at The Hideaway
