“Simplify your life...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

I have to admit, I was very impressed and very pleased with our stay here. So much so, when we return to Sedona we will stay here again! Thank you TA reviews for this great, budget friendly motel suggestion. When you are from NY, you have a certain image that comes to mind when you say “motel” so even though the positive reviews enticed us enough to consider it, I still went with low expectations. Well our expectations were surpassed and exceeded-SCORE!!

We had read that you can only check in at 3pm, so we made sure to be there by 2:30-2:45 and sure enough the office was closed, but we knew to wait. The owner, Bill, arrived just before 3, so we only waited a mere 5 mins or so for his arrival. He is a very warm, welcoming nice man, with a calming voice which just oozed a Sedona vibe. When we had booked our room (about a month prior by phone) he advised us that he only had two double beds, but that was OK with us. So when we checked in, he offered us a King bed room for our 2nd night (he offered, we didn’t even ask) but we declined and just kept with our double bed room for simplicity for our 3 night stay. He happily volunteered to show us a map and circled key interest points to us, such a nice personal check in process.

We were in room 28 and wow, pretty impressive, again, for a Motel. Super Clean! Equipped with Mini Fridge, Microwave, Iron with Iron board, Blow dryer, heated lamp in bathroom and excellent shower pressure! I have quite a bit of hair, so shower pressure is always important to me. Toilet flushes very quietly. Free wi-fi, cable TV channels and you’re in the center of the town. We live in a city so we didn’t notice any noise from the road at all! It really was quiet though. The only time we heard any noise was when a neighboring unit was using their shower (Hearing the plumbing) but that’s about all. No complaints at all with our stay! Even the bed was comfortable!!

We didn’t get to enjoy the patio at the end of the motel very much but we did sit outside our room on the bench provided and watch the sunrise behind Snoopy Rock. It was very quiet and peaceful. We were able to walk up to Pink Jeep Tours and into Uptown Sedona which is an easy 10 min walk. What a true a value to have stayed here! I wish all motels were as great as this, it sure would save me a ton of money in our travels :)

Yes, I would stay here again! Heres the thing, average rooms but right in the heart of Sedona. Next door to Tlackapaque (ok who can spell that?) And yes, the owner was simply put, a really cool guy. He suggested a few places to eat, and really helpful about everything in general. You can step outside your room and see beautiful views, and there is a patio at the end with breathtaking views. Room had a fridge and microwave. Good shower, average motel bed. Sedona is pricey so for $100 a night we were quite happy.

Room Tip: If i stayed there again I would ask if the end room was available. Closest to the best views.

My husband and I recently stayed 3 nights at the Sedona Motel in Sedona, Arizona. I selected the motel based on previous trip advisor recommendations and rankings - and we were not disappointed!
Don was managing the motel when we stayed in mid-October and I have the highest praise for him. He was friendly, really helpful regarding restaurants and he certainly made us feel very welcome. He loaned us a book on Sedona mountain biking trails and he was very accommodating regarding our mountain bikes.
We were fortunate to be accommodated in the end room (#33) which abutted the verandah. The verandah affords magnificent views of the red rock of Sedona and we enjoyed relaxing and soaking in the view. The room was relatively inexpensive, very clean and spacious, had a small fridge, TV and a good-sized, clean bathroom. The bed was excellent and the pillows were great and the ceiling fan added to our comfort. Ice was freely available at reception. As a previous reviewer mentioned, even though the motel is situated close to the 'Y' intersection of the highways, there was very little road noise inside the room - in fact we didn't notice it at all at night. Being situated near the 'Y' affords easy access to walking and mountain-biking trails and shops via car or bike, with some trailheads close enough to walk to.
If we ever return to Sedona, the Sedona Motel will be our first choice. I highly recommend it for great value and a friendly reception.

Room Tip: #33 - closest to the verandah

Can't believe I failed to review this place before. We stayed here in April with our grandkids for 2 days before going to the Grand Canyon. We had the 2 room cottage to the rear of the property. It was perfect as everyone had some private space (we're talking teenagers, here} We walked to restaurants, Talapaque (sp) and a wonderful emporium of all things spiritual/zen where the girls had a psychic reading of their Aura. Very Sedona - ey.

My husband and I have stayed in the motel room and thoroughly enjoyed sunset on the patio with the lucious redrock views. Being on the highway was of no issue at all. The owner was most informative and friendly. Personally, I prefer to travel more rather than pay more and travel less. This place was perfect. We will be back.

Room Tip: cottage was great with grandkids. The end motel room is adjacent to the lovely patio. Good for just...

We are so glad we kept things simple this trip and choosing the Sedona Motel was a great choice. Walking distance from many great things to see. They have a patio with plenty of seating and a great view, great shower with plenty of hot water & pressure, comfortable bed and a ceiling fan. The front desk staff was friendly and pointed out some features in the area that put a big smile on our faces. The price is right and if you don't require a lot of "stuff", you'll be comfortable here and save money to boot.

Room Tip: From room #23 you can see Snoopy Rock!!!

Perfect location - right in the center of town. Every room has a great view as well. Appreciated the motel owner's suggestions on what to visit during our short stay. Very clean, comfortable rooms. Would definitely stay there again!

Stayed for 2 nights on a weekend in September while on a 2 week trip through Utah and Arizona. Nothing fancy, but definitely clean, comfortable and affordable. Very convenient location and Bill was very helpful and friendly. We were in room 33 on the bend and enjoyed the extra space. Great patio. Didn't notice road noise. Would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Room 33 has some extra room.
