“The perfect location in beautiful Sedona,AZ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

My wife I had a weekend getaway at The Inn on Oak Creek, I recommend this to couples and families as the rooms sit above Oak Creek with private access to the water. The location is ideal with great food and shopping all in within walking distance. The breakfast room/lobby has continental breakfast with a beatiful deck to enjoy sunny Sedona. The room was very comfortable and clean. Its the perfect getaway place!

Room Tip: The top floor balcony view is Spectacular.

In town with my mother for a mother daughter get away and this place could not have been more perfect. Chris who checked us in was very welcoming and took his time showing us around. Our room was newly renovated in soft calming colors. We loved the special touches of wine glasses, bottle opener and Bath & Body Works for toiletries. We spent the day out hiking and it was so nice to come home to this lush spot slightly off the main hustle and bustle of town. Got to meet the owner as we checked out and I really appreciated his and the staffs pride, investment and attention to detail you just don't get in the chains anyone. My mom and I would both stay here again in a second and hope we get the chance again someday! If were in Sedona this is our new home away from home.

Room Tip: Might want to avoid the main floor room next to the lobby area. It's lovely but maybe a little n...

Since our last stay at the Inn on Oak Creek, the Inn had been tastefully redecorated. Our creek-side room was comfortable with a nice deck from which we could watch the creek, including 2 families with baby mallard ducks, and the red rocks of Sedona. It was such a nice setting to enjoy a glass of wine in the evening or the early morning light and wildlife. If you can't get a creek-side room, the shared deck off the living/dining area is wonderful with the same view. The continental breakfast was very good, with toast-your-own bagels so that the cream cheese softened just right, and fruit juice, coffee and an assortment of teas. Parking is in the adjacent lot - with a bridge over part of the nicely landscaped creekside area.

We highly recommend The Inn at Oak Creek. The accommodations were comfortable and clean. The employees were all very friendly and helpful. It is obvious they enjoy taking care of their guests. Spence was very welcoming and went out of way to recommend some good hiking trails, restaurants etcetera. Each morning they provide muffins, bagels, coffee and juice. Try to get a creek side room if you can. We booked a non-creek side (freeway side) room but Spence was able to move us midway through our stay. Very quiet, relaxing and tranquil place.

Many thanks for your kind words! I am so glad we could accommodate you in a Creekside Room...even if it meant moving halfway thru your trip! Thanks so much for staying with us.

After a long day of hiking and shopping and dining, it was nice to come back home to the Inn on Oak Creek and drink a glass of wine and check out the view of the creek/canyon from the balcony. The creek view is outstanding and relaxing and it almost looked like a set from a Hollywood movie. I expected Esther Williams to come zipping down the creek on water skis, it was just that beautiful. If you look down the creek, you will see some of the fabulous red rock.

The Inn is located in the Gallery section of town so you avoid some of the zombie tourists wandering around dazed and confused and overfed and underdressed. If you want to hang out at ice cream shops and t-shirt shops, you will have a short hike into the touristy part of Sedona. While the street is busy in front of the Inn, you can not hear any traffic noise once you are in the room. (All you hear are quacking ducks)
The rooms are well decorated with neutral colors and the bathroom has new fixtures, tile, etc. and with a whirlpool tub that we did not use. The major bonus was the gas fireplace which was nice to watch @ bedtime after a long day of activity.
Spence was a festive, outgoing and helpful owner and he was on site most of the time with good suggestions and interesting conversation. If I ever travel to Lake Tahoe or Anna Maria, Island, I would try to stay at his other properties.
The Inn provides coffee, juice, bagels, fresh fruit and sweet rolls for breakfast. There is a TV in the main lobby of the inn with comfortable couches and chairs and reading material. If you like to dine or sun yourself, they do have a nice deck. (It would be nice if Spence would add a chaise lounge or two)
Down on "Creek level" Spence has thoughtfully provided a hammock, tables and chairs if you want some quiet and peaceful time. (I took a quick nap on the hammock)
I'm happy to provide a positive recommendation for the Inn on Oak Creek and I would defiantly stay here again.

Room Tip: All of the rooms with the exception of one have a great view and a balcony.

We stayed at this property last spring when it was a bed and breakfast. It was wonderful and expensive. It is no longer a bed and breakfast which makes the rates a little more affordable.
It has a continental breakfast. The rooms are newly decorated. The view of Oak Creek is wonderful. I could stay on the little balcony nearly all day.
I recommend this to anyone looking for a comfortable and restful stay.

Room Tip: Choose a creekside room for the view.

I researched many places in Sedona before booking here for 4 nights, making the choice mostly on value and other reviews (and availability for 4 nights around Easter!) After our stay, I can say that there are so many other reasons to book here. The location was perfect for us. It's quieter than Uptown or West Sedona, but within easy walking distance of several great restaurants, in our opinion. Had we been interested in shopping, Hillside Sedona is just across the street, and Tlaquepaque is around the corner.
The inn is nicely decorated, the bagels, fruit and pastries for breakfast were tasty, and the beds were so comfortable. I say beds, because Chris and the staff noticed that our first room was warmer than they thought it should be, and asked if we wanted to move to another room. How often does your innkeeper act on a potential problem before you even notice it? We wish we could have stayed longer and had a chance to enjoy the creekside patio and the gas grill available for guest use. Our other regret: that we didn't see the javelinas that Chris said will occasionally wander into the grounds and parking lot!

Room Tip: Don't worry if you don't get a creekside room. The other rooms ( 8 and 10 in our case) are v...
