“You cannot beat Desert Quail for price and comfort!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

I am currently staying at the Desert Quail, having driven half-way across the country.
Planned on staying only one night but the room is so lovely with huge king bed with memory foam topper (I have one at home in NJ and will definitely get one for condo in AZ) and lovely fireplace I simply have to stay an extra night. The room is immaculate; there is a fridge and a microwave and plenty of room to store clothing and such should you have a much longer stay.

Nick, the manager, told me a place to walk to for dinner/drinks but he also mentioned a grocery store which is literally steps away. I went there and bought wine and food and enjoyed staying in my room with the fireplace on the cozy sofa and watched a movie on my computer. For awhile before too cold I sat outside on chairs provided and had a glass of wine and looked at the mountains. Sedona is an awesome place and so much fun to walk around and lots of interesting things to buy (if you are into that) and great places to eat. Looks like a bunch of stores walking distance from here, too, so I will check those out today.

This place is a treasure and I will definitely be back here!!

A wonderful stay, originally booked for 2 nights but extended to 6 nights. My husband and I decided the environs were a great place to unwind on the last leg of our USA trip before heading home to Australia. The Desert Quail is situated in Oak Creek Village surrounded by the Red Rock Mountains about a 10 to 15 minute drive out of Sedona on the scenic 179 highway. We enjooyed being out of the very commercialised Sedona. Nick the proprietor was very friendly and helpful in suggesting great places to eat like the Red Rock Cafe for breakfast and amazing coffee and muffins (GF) at the cafe around the corner where they roasted their own coffee beans. The historic copper town of Jerome was also a great day out. The rooms were comfortable with a fridge, microwave and coffee maker and a sofa to relax in at the end of a hard days sightseeing or walking. There are beautiful walks everywhere around the area. We choseto travel to the Grand Canyon about a 2 hour drive rather than stay in the freezing conditions. We really enjoyed the drive as we saw Williams, Oak Creek and the San Francisco mountains on the journey. We felt like we were saying goodbye to a friend when we were farewelled by Nick.

Stayed here recently at the tail end of a 15 day road trip. Through out this trip there were all sorts of places we stayed that were not clean at all, the Desert Quail was a nice change. The room was spacious and clean. There was a nice gas powered fire place (for a bit extra) and along with that the bed/bedding was really comfortable. There was also a couch and table in the room that made it comfortable to relax in. Overall, for the price against other Sedona hotels, this one is an easy choice.

Along with all this, Nick (I think) at the front desk, was a lot of help. He called around to see if there were restaurants open and gave honest advice on the places that we should go see and avoid in the area. He also offered for us to see the room before we paid for it which is always a plus.

My wife and I stayed 4 nights at the Desert Quail Inn. We just needed a cheap places to stay. We are very impressed and would completely recommend this inn to fellow budget travelers. The room is very clean and big. The maid service cleaned the room promptly at 11. Overall the inn is ran as if it cost three times as much as it really does. This is a perfect place to stay if you need a cheaper place to stay while visiting Sedona.

We just went to Sedona for a 5 days vacation and we stay in Desert Quail inn for 4 nights and Days Inn for 1 night. Although both get good reviews, I would say that Desert Quail Inn is far better than Days Inn.

Desert Quail Inn is very clean. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The room is large and confortable, and there is a groceries store right behind and an outlet mall right cross the street.

I will stay there again next visit for sure, if they have room available.

The staff was amazing and accommodating. We upgraded to the suite with the jacuzzi and fireplace with a king size bed. The room was huge and the amenities did not disappoint. The price was a little high but for great memories it was more than fair. The location is decent but a little far from downtown Sedona. Overall, great stay!!

My wife and I stayed in Dec 2012 and this was a wonderful choice. Close to shopping and a great cafe for breakfast is next door! Our room had Granite countertops and a fireplace, with a memory foam mattress - really comfortable. I would high recommend and would stay here again without question.
