We stayed for 7 nights in Room 408 and had a great time. The location south of Sedona proper in Oak Creek was a plus to us. We were close to some great hiking trails and there was everything we needed right close by - gas stations, restaurants and a nice grocery store right behind the motel. Our room (408) was very large and beautifully decorated. The entire property looks like it was recently rennovated with fresh paint everywhere and the room was great. We had a king bed and a sleeper sofa, a desk, a fireplace(!), refridgerator, microwave, ironing board/iron, hair dryer, coffee maker - I really can't think of anything we lacked.
We used this as a base for exploring the area - two days at the Grand Canyon (an easy 2 hour drive away), Flagstaff, Horseback riding in Mormon Lake, hiking around Sedona, Pink Jeep tour, etc. Having the fridge and microwave meant we could stock up on water and food stuff plus make our own Starbucks coffee in the room, all from the convenient IGA store next door.
The management was friendly and helpful and the room was clean and restocked each day. We had considered resort options in the area that cost 3X as much but decided on the Desert Quail Inn based on TripAdvisor recommendations and I am glad we did. We not only saved some money but had an above average room to enjoy. We have stayed in places much more expensive than this and had a lot less room to show for it.
The only "complaint" was the laundry facility was out of order. The owner explained this was due to the recent change over from propane to natural gas and the dryer wasn't set up for natural gas yet. He did offer to let us wash the clothes in the washer and use their commercial dryer for drying but we ended up just making the trip to a laundromat. Not a big deal and likely corrected by the time I am writing this.
Highly recommend the Desert Quail Inn and would love to stay there again.
