“Family owned hotel with spacious and clean rooms in a great location.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013 via mobile

This is a great place, in a great location. The room was bigger than I was expecting and in great condition. The place is family owned and both husband and wife were very friendly and resourceful. You are a few miles from uptown Sedona but very close to Bell Rock, Courthouse, and Cathedral Rock. I would highly recommend it.

It also has a supermarket very close and a great place for breakfast/lunch called Red Rock Cafe.

This motel was perfect for us! Immaculately clean. Peaceful. Beds were amazingly comfortable. Motel was booked to capacity, but never heard a sound from other guests. Owners let us check in a bit early and very helpful in telling us where things were in Sedona. Conveniently located, walking distance to grocery store and restaurant. Highly recommended, and would stay again

Their welcoming staff makes you feel quite at home; a feeling only magnified by the really comfy mattress that allows you to sink-in after a hard day's hike. This husband and wife team went out of their way to make certain that my stay was truly comfortable ~ very knowledgeable about the trails and always there with a great restaurant recommendations. Considering how ridiculously expensive other area hotels are ~ it's almost too good to be true to find this wonderful oasis so close to everything. I've stayed here twice and will definitely be back.

We stayed her twice within a two-week period. After our first two-night stay, we decided to go back for one more night before flying back to Chicago! We loved everything about this hotel, including the location. The rooms have obviously been recently updated. Everything looks brand new, and the beds were fabulous! What we really appreciated about the Desert Quail Inn, in addition to the wonderful amenities, were the owners. It is family-owned and run, and we had the pleasure of meeting the owners, a very nice couple (and their adorable kids) during our two stays at the Desert Quail Inn. It is always refreshing to deal with the actual owners rather than a 1-800 number when making reservations, and even more enjoyable when you get to meet the folks you talked to over the phone. This hotel is about 15 minutes away from the busy and congested areas of Sedona, which we really appreciated. We ate at three restaurants very close to the Inn--all very good. The Red Rock Café (closes early--no dinner here) is a great, little café that is across the parking lot from the Inn. Great breakfast/lunch. Try their plate-sized cinnamon roll (which feeds 6)! Across the street is Marketplace Café, where we both enjoyed some awesome pasta. A short drive down Hwy 179, another gem: Maria's Restaurant & Cantina with great food, reasonable prices and a really nice staff. We can't wait to get back to the Sedona area!!

Sedona is beautiful but expensive. After searching several months for accommodations that were under $200 and after reading many TripAdvisor reviews of the Desert Quail, we crossed our fingers and booked online. I was initially a little hesitant because of the "motor lodge" appearance of the place, but they must have recently put some money into renovations because the rooms are tastefully updated. As an added bonus, the beds were comfortable, and the rooms were quiet. The inn is not located in downtown Sedona, and you will need a car to get to and from attractions, but it's located in a quieter part of the area, and I felt the rock scenery was even prettier in that region than in the touristy downtown area.

While we were a bit disappointed with the weather In Sedona, we were not disappointed in The Desert Quail Inn. Our room was spacious, very clean and comfortable. We had a large flat screen tv. Instead of hiking in rain and snow, we enjoyed the art shops and restaurants of Tlaquepaque and then returned to enjoy our room. Behind The Desert Quail Inn (go around the swimming pool) you will find Red Rock Cafe and a handy grocery store, IGA Webers, with good selections for travelers. We paid $193 total for two nights, a very good price; it's less other nights of the week. Lots of advantages to its location off highway 179.

although the reviews were excellent we were suprised how neat and clean the recently renovated large room was. Staff was friendly and the Red Rock Cafe behind it was excellent.Next night we stayed in a high end brand hotel which could not compare with Desert quail.
