We stayed at Junipine for 2 nights just recently and I have read most reviews for this accommodation. We checked in Sunday afternoon, and the lady at the desk to me that there is a diner onsite, however it's closed Sundays and Mondays. Bummer! If you don't mind driving into town, which is about a 15-20 minute drive, then you will need to go there if you want a bite to eat, coffee, desert, etc. However one of the good things about this place is you can get your own groceries and make your own food since the units have full kitchens. We didn't utilize that because of our quick two night stay.
So, as I was checking in, the lady at the desk told me that our room would be Unit 12. I've haven't heard anything about this unit on the previous reviews, but I was gonna give it a try. In the back of my mind, I was thinking she might get me in the most oldest, not updated unit there was since I booked through Expedia travel. I was giving her the benefit of doubt. As I opened the door of the room, my NIGHTMARE can true. Just like the gentlemen before me on the reviews, this one is NOT updated. The kitchen countertops, cabinets, lightings, bathroom, and the nooks and corners we worn and gross. For about $200.00/ per night, I expect much more than this. I went back to the office with the keys and told her this will not work, and asked for a better room or a refund. My spouse and I traveled a very long distance, we were tired from the drive and did not want to SETTLE for something sub par from our expectations. She gave us the keys to Unit 33, and that one was much better. Updated granite countertops, nicer furniture, a more like home away from home feel. This Unit DOES NOT have a jucuzzi in it. I wasn't happy with it, but at least I was satisfied.
The lady at the front desk told me that jacuzzi are not available through Expedia. I wish I had known that, otherwise I would have booked directly through their website. I would've had no problem with that arrangement. Lesson learned. If there's a hotel that you like on any other travel sites, you might wanna find out from the hotel itself if there may be anything different as to what you getting versus booking directly through them. That was not clearly stated.
The Unit is okay, but I wish they provided more complimentaries, like a welcome appreciation letter, or candies, bottle of wine, something that tells me they we are appreciated as guests. I guess that is all. In the office, I saw a plaque showed they are recognized by Tripadvisor as one of the best hotels here in Sedona. It's great and all, but I think could be a whole lot better in my opinion. I surely hope that their hard work to achieve that award will not give them an excuse to become complacent.
