We got this place as a timeshare exchange. It is located in the heart of downtown Sedona very close to shopping and places to eat.

It was nice and comfortable. The decor, I think, was a little outdated but the beds were very comfortable. The place was well stocked with the basic supplies. They had the new Memory Foam Mattresses. The view from the rooms where not great but at least we had a unit overlooking the pool, which my son loved. No views of the surrounding mountains an countryside.

The Jerome Palace Haunted Hamburger

Restaurant | "The Haunted Hamburger"

I would definitely eat here again. What a wonderful Place. It is a great value for good food and it's reasonably priced.The restaurant has an outside deck and a huge panoramic window overlooking the valley and the desert. It has a lot of memorabilia from Jerome. Jerome is an old west turn of the 19th century Copper mining town. The main draw to this place is that it is haunted by a women. As those of you who know me I am kin to spirits and I can feel their presence. She was not in the restaurant but I felt her moving around in the rooms above. The Staff are very friendly. The service was excellent. The food was excellent. We stopped in for lunch. We all had burgers, except our little ...Read More

Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen

Restaurant | "Pappadeaux"

This was a great place with a wonderful Atmosphere. It reminded me of one of the restaurants on Bourbon Street in New Orleans. This is predominately a seafood restaurant but the style of the food is Cajun. The Service was very friendly and accommodating. They had a children's menu which was very diverse and appealing to anyone traveling with a young child. My son is 10 and very picky. My wife had the Cajun snapper which she said it was wonderful. My son had a shrimp dish which was yummy. I had the fried seafood platter which was a bounty of mixed seafood and crustatious I had never had catfish before it was quite yummy.  But the best was the appetizer, we had a large plate of fried alligator, and...Read More

Canyon Dave's

Attraction | "Canyon Dave Asventures"

The Creek in Oak Creek Canyon Photo, Sedona, Arizona
We went on two tours with Canyon Dave. We never saw Canyon Dave. When going out with them, dress comfortable and wear a good pair of hiking shoes. Expect a long 12 hour day with Canyon Dave Tours. Lunch, snacks, and water are all included in your package. The first tour guide Tanya was great. Tanya picked us up at our timeshare. She was fun and personable (see picture). She gave us a wonderful tour of the Sedona area, the mining town of Jerome and Oak Creek Canyon. We learned a lot about geology and rock and mountain formations. He took us up to Montezuma's Wll and taught us a lot about the Anastaci Indians and PreCambrian Indian culture and anthropology. She even told us about a friend of hers far...Read More
