“Great location and independent spirit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013 via mobile

This location is perfect, in town but not on busy 89a. The owner Bill could not have been better. He loaned us a Book on Sedona's 10 best hikes and spent time showing us the area on the MAP. The rooms were comfortable and well equipped . The view is fantastic. There are plenty of good restaurants within a block or two.
A small independent friendly well run place like this beats the impersonal chain every time. Good value. Can't say enough

Bill is awesome. He helped us find great photography locations and was very gracious. We enjoyed great views, great accessibility and helpful staff.
My husband is a pro photographer, and as soon as bill knew that he used a map to help us make the most of our stay. I loved the location close to shops and hikes.

This is a family owned motel. It is clean, comfortable and is near everything you want to visit.
We picked this based on Tripadvisor and were not disappointed. Uptown and downtown is walkable from here. We did walk everywhere except when we wanted to visit the trails. We did have a rental car but only used this for 5 hours of our visit. Restaurants, shops etc. are all walkable from here. It is on a busy street but slept like a baby here. Comfy bed,,,,
Sedona was a wonderful experience !

We met friends in Sedona and spent the night at Sedona Motel. It's a small hotel with a personal touch. When we called for reservations we got the message to leave our number. Bill called us back within the hour. We reserved a room for us and another for our friends. We were pleasantly surprised when he gave us two connecting rooms at the end of the hotel, right next to the patio. The patio is very nice and a beautiful place to watch the sun set behind the red rocks. The furniture was completely different in the two rooms. Each had it's advantages. We had the end room with small table and 2 chairs, our friends had a little end table and 2 nicely upholstered chairs. We used our table and all 4 chairs for snacks and card playing. An added plus was Ken's Creekside Restaurant was right across the street. This is not a luxury hotel, but it is a clean friendly hotel in a beautiful location.

Bill the owner is so nice & helpful. This motel is nothing fancy but the view of the Red Rock canyon is all you need. It is located on the main st thru town and my husband did complain of traffic noise.

We found the Sedona Motel on line, and I had spoken to Bill before we came. We were getting there very late, so I had left a message that we were on the way and don't rent out our room. Finding this motel was like a step back to my youth. They have kept the good things about a nice motel from the '60s and upgraded the rest. Bedding, TV quality, real drinking glasses, Wolfgang Puck coffee, soft towels, and were excellent and fun. Great location, and Bill was so helpful in helping us find a good, late restaurant and shopping the next day. We will go back and send others too.
