My husband and I stayed here on November 1st and 2nd. Bill the owner was very helpful and very nice, giving us an orientation of the town with a map and telling us about the places to visit. He had many menus of the restaurants in the area. You are surrounded by red rocks at this motel, Snoopy Rock is in view. Yes, it is right on Route 179, but we couldn't hear the traffic at night. Very quiet.
You can walk to TLAQUEPAQUE Village. You walk out of your room and make a right to the village, one block away and about two minutes you are there. We ate at El Rincon Restaurante Mexicano for dinner. Very good. I bought a Raku cross at Esteban’s and a trivet made by a Sedona local.
The next morning we made a left out of our room and walked to the shopping area, The Shops at Pinon Pointe on 89A, we ate breakfast at Wildflower Bread Company, good meal. After we drove (7 min drive) to Chapel of the Holy Cross, amazing site. Next was Cathedral Rock (about 7 min drive), great hike. After our hiking, we went to the shops in Uptown Sedona (you can walk there, but we drove and parked in the lot (it’s free). We walked around and ate lunch at the Open Range Grill and Tavern and dinner later on at the Cowboy Club. Both were great meals. Between meals and shopping we drove to Airport Road to see the sunset.
Across the street from the Sedona Motel, we stopped in to Ken’s Creekside and got a hot chocolate and a coffee to go. The next morning we ate breakfast there. Also, a good meal. We checked out and headed to Bell Rock and did some more hiking. We had a great time in Sedona and I am so glad I picked the Sedona Motel!
