You know how sometimes when you shop based on price, especially with lodging, you really do not know if you're going to be happy with your choice? Going into this particular overnight stay, I was especially concerned because the room rate was about $20 less that others that I found for the same date, and published reviews were somewhat mixed. Once checked in, however, we were very pleased with Sky Ranch Lodge and the location high above the city at the Sedona Airport.This small motel style "lodge" was comprised of approximately 25 four unit buildings, most of which were single level making it especially nice with the low to the ground profile in a place where the unobstructed views beyond your window is what we were looking for. Granted, we were in a "garden view" room which did not provide the beauty of the red rocks beyond the property; it was still a very pleasant and peaceful view from our room at the backside of the property. The trickling water sounds of the fountains were an especially nice touch, especially when it was time to go to bed.We have a room with a king bed. It was nicely decorated and with the usual features like an in-room coffee maker with premium coffee and some very nice tea selections, a hair blow dryer and all the necessary bathroom toiletries (shampoo, hand lotion and soaps). The only thing that would have added to our stay would have been a mini-fridge. At $80/night rack rate, we were very happy with our experience and the value received.For guests staying at Sky Ranch Lodge, there is a nice discount available on the Pink Jeep Broken Arrow tour. Normally a $75+tax for adults, we did it for $131. Thank you Sky Ranch Lodge!For more information to include photos of the lodge and other special packages, check them out at http://www.skyranchlodge.com/.
