    I'm trying to schedule a surprise birthday trip for my wife to Sedona from Vegas. I know there are superchargers at Kingman and Flagstaff, but I am having a little trouble locating a hotel in Sedona that EV friendly. Has anyone had any experience of knowledge of what's available for reasonable lodging and EV hookups?

    Yeah, I stayed at Sedona Rouge, nice hotel with a NEMA 14-50. Only one, but the UMC could probably reach to two other spaces if that one is ICEd. I had no trouble charging either night I was there.

    We also have used the Sedona Rouge (just paid $5 as we weren't staying there...). We were told by the Enchantment Resort staff that they can set up a 14-50 but definitely confirm before you get there. Other than that we have not found any places.

    I stayed at the Sedona Rouge a couple of weeks ago. The 14-50 there worked wonderfully. The staff is very pleasant, you get free happy hour appetizers, and a way better than average breakfast with the room.

    The only ever so slight annoyance that I had was that my 40A charge rate was reduced to 30A sometime in the evening. Before I went to bed, I went out to the car, unplugged the car and the UMC, closed the charge port, and started over. After that, it continued charging at 40A. With the overnight charge, I could have done fine with 30A, but I decided to see if it would happen again. My theory is that some other electrical activity at the hotel or in the neighborhood triggered the current reduction.

    It is a little pricey for some, but except for that, I would recommend the Sedona Rouge without qualification. Although I did not use it, the Spa at the hotel might be a great birthday present for your wife. As always call ahead to verify the status of the charge location.
