Oasis in the middle of Phoenix

Posted Jul 15, 2015
Pros: The privacy and the landscaping. The honor bar.
Cons: If the breakfast was included in the price.
Location: My stay was too brief to explore the neighborhood.
The pool area was so serene. At night it was lit with beautiful green lights. It is worth the stay just for the ambience of the pool area. There are various areas to sit out throughout the property. Every inch of the property is utilized in a natural setting. The room itself was cozy but it looked like it was hastily painted. The apparent closet was locked and that was a bit inconvenient. Again, all of this was offered in a suburb

Calming Experience

Posted May 9, 2015
I didn't want a Motel 6 experience. The pictures of Zen Yard on Expedia looked tranquil and classy. And that is how it turned out...calming, unique, thoughtful, trusting. I loved the Honor Bar, though I didn't use it this time. I was happy enough, sitting outside my zendo, under the full moon, in my jammies, surrounded by green growing things and a goddess statue. Breakfast was divine. Next time, I will stay longer and enjoy more.

Peaceful!

Very "zen" -- peaceful. Lots of special places to just sit and read or think quietly. Lovely pool and spa. Great personalized service - made us feel "at home."

Different is good.

Posted Mar 25, 2015 on Hotels
We stayed in The Flagstaff Room, and at first glance we were a bit surprised; it was somewhat smaller than we expected. That was never a problem, however. It was cozy and quiet, as was the whole facility. The owners and staff were friendly and helpful. The landscaping and decor evoked a feeling of tranquility. ZenYard is truly a departure from the mundane cookie-cutter lodging you generally find in a city the size of Phoenix. Maybe it's not for everybody, but it was great for us.

Understand What It Is

Posted Feb 10, 2015
This place is clean and attractive, but you have to understand that you may not see any representatives of the company/B&B (we didn't really mind that, but it can be rather odd to walk in and find no one around). My main issue was how LOUD it was. Check out is at 11, and we slept in. Or would have liked to, but the breakfasting guests were EXTREMELY audible from our room (Sedona) and that was just too much intimacy with strangers. The design of the space could have been much better, and there is no bathroom adjoining the room we stayed in. To be fair, we knew that ahead of time. But knowing in theory is different from practice, and I have to say overall that "bathroom down the hall--so Euro" was just not for us. Nice place, probably nice people, poor construction of the house. And where are the baseboards???
