“Great place to vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

Very clean, accommodating, great breakfast, friendly - helpful staff. The king size bed was very comfortable. The hot tub was great, my wife and I didn't have time for the pool but it looked nice and clean.
I would recommend Southwest Inn for anyone going to Sedona. When we return to Sedona, we will stay at the Southwest Inn.

Room Tip: Look no farther for a room, you have found it. Choose the upstairs, the alcove walk to the rear is r...

Looked at about 10 hotels in Sedona before selecting the SouthWest Inn. Stayed from November 04th till 07th. Great place to stay - excellent sized clean rooms with great bed, bathroom and toiletries. Reasonable free European sized breakfast, free internet, coffee in lobby and parking - what more can you ask for.
Nick, who worked the afternoon shift in the lobby, offered great advice with respect where to visit and eat in town - his advice was great.
Would stay there again without any hesitation.

We were able to check in a little early. A bit away from the main tourist area (not necessarily a bad thing, but had to drive to get there). Room was spacious, clean, and quiet. Breakfast room was clean and comfortable. Food was ok. Front desk was helpful with parking and dinner tips in the tourist area. As anywhere in Sedona, the views of the surrounding scenery are spectacular.

You will not be disappointed in this motel. The rooms had that southwestern feel with fire place, robes and balcony, the views from 2nd floor are breathtaking and the price is right. Also, the location was great. I loved the town but would not have wanted to stay there. This is a nice quiet and convenient location.
My only complaint was the light was not fixed in our room and when I called inquiring about an iron and ironing board I was told it was in the lobby. I wasn't sure at that point if I was suppose to bring my clothing there as no option was provided.
All that put aside I would not hesitate to stay there again.

Spent 3 nights in Sedona (2nd visit) and wanted a clean & convenient location that was reasonably priced. This fit the bill nicely. It isn't the Hyatt but location was good and the beds were comfortable. It was clean and we could park right outside the room. The wifi was tough and not Mac-friendly. Finally got it working dependably the second day. Breakfast was awful and the coffee was cold at their complimentary breakfast. The morning desk gal wasn't great, a little self-occupied. The night guy (newer guy) was really helpful and gave us great restaurant recommendations and also got us going with the Pink Jeep tours we took. (and got us a discount) Overall, good solid place to stay and a good value for what can be a pretty expensive area.

Needing 2-3 nite stays weekly for husband's cancer treatment at Sedona's nearby Med.Center, I looked for casual, affordable accommodations. A regular TA poster, I was not deterred by a few "so-so's, nothing special" comments among glowing reviews about this small, attractive inn with "upscale" amenities. I almost hesitated to praise this "find" too highly & risk not finding future availability, as we definitely will return.

At first sight, the hotel's exterior in straight, Santa Fe pueblo lines, complemented by squared-off, well-kept desert-landscaped oases for sitting & rock-reflecting, projected a message of basic simplicity. OK, basic was what we wanted. But, inside, we found basic-PLUS. That is, PLUS a subtle touch of class & bit of charm reflecting the unique taste of keepers-of-the-inn Cindy & Craig. Bright rooms (we had a 2-room suite), warm paint colors, tasteful SW wall-hung prints, homey Kiva fireplace, spliit-log ceiling & other Santa Fe touches that imparted to us a sense of cozy, healing serenity.

Nothing ordinary about the amenities for this non-resort hotel & no cookie-cutter blandness here. Just little extra touches that, after 4 wks made us feel at-home. Oversized bathroom with 2 sinks was supplied with thick, soft, fluffy towels (USA label!) and "Sicilian citrus-scented" bath products (nice touch). Hot water almost instantly & plenty of it. Plump, pure white, cloud-like comforter, bed linens, large, plump decorator pillows (& sleep pillows, too) atop the most comfy, cloud-like mattress I've slept on anywhere.

Consistent, efficient maid service was evident, excellent & spotless. Fridge was nice for hubby's medical "smoothies." MW would have been helpful, but we used the breakfast room's MW a few times. Our 2nd floor balcony afforded a great view of Thunder Mountain (I call it "my" mountain for the serenity it gives me) & nearby red rocks, where we watched the rays of both sunrise & sunset play on those magnificent fock formations. Great place to enjoy your take-out lunch or supper.

We loved the cheerful breakfast room with patio. I don't understand how anyone could call the complimentary b'fast "bare bones, nothing special" unless they expected bacon, omelets & other grill foods. Otherwise, items listed in previous TA reviews here say it all -- something for everyone -- and another PLUS: Nancy's homemade bean burrito with sour cream, salsa, cheese -- a meal in itself. A small minus: we wished b'fast was available earlier than 7:30.

Erika & Nick have a wonderful, can-do manner & were always eager to provide info about the area. One surprise after a particularly bad radiation treatment, Erika sent a bottle of sparkling apple cider in an ice bucket & 2 wine glasses--so festive, so thoughtful! Two computers (free) available, but only between 7:30 am & 9pm, when b'fast room closes. Fitness room has 3 "basics" - treadmill (a bit old & tired but functional), nice recumbent bike & elliptical.

Several great eateries nearby (book is in the lobby). One of our favorites: Judi's, at Soldier Pass Rd. Charming, intimate little rooms, great menu items. Ask to sit by the fireplace. Another: Heartline Cafe -- our preference for lunch, not dinner.

If available, best views are upstairs & worth the extra cost. All in all, a wonderful find, great value for our needs. We'll be back--hopefully under healthier circumstances.

Room Tip: If you're a light sleeper, ask for room farther away from the road (or, ear plugs help).
