Based on reviews here, we got a balcony room and the ghost tour. The first was great -- panoramic views of the Verde Valley and Sedona red rocks. The second was a bust. I could even call it a con. We bailed out after 60 minutes of a 90-minute tour gave us a murder mystery and a suicide but no ghost stories. They said the building is haunted but gave no accounts of ghost sightings. Instead they gave everyone ghost detector devices and encouraged us to look for paranormal activities and take photos with our cameras. Boring, especially at $20 a head.
Building was built in 1926 as a hospital and looks like it still has original equipment. The balcony saved the accommodation from a failing grade, but still overpriced at $180 a night.
Everything closes at 9 pm, including the hotel restaurant/bar. The Haunted Hamburger restaurant down the hill is a better deal at one third the prices.
