“A Well Run Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

I chose this hotel based on the reviews on Trip Advisor. My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and were not disappointed. It is a small hotel, looks pretty unassuming. We had a room on the upper floor. The room had everything (flat screen tv, fireplace, nice balcony with a couple of chairs, fridge and wi-fi). The only thing that seemed to be missing was a safe. The bed was comfortable and the sheets and pillows looked fresh and inviting. The breakfast was included. The room where the breakfast is available is comfortable, cheerful and kept spotlessly clean. Good choice of cereals, breads, yogurt and even fresh "make yourself" waffles. The coffee was fresh and hot. This hotel almost had the ambience of a "bed and breakfast" place.
Front desk staff are very friendly and helpful with directions and booking activities.
It is located a little away from the downtown area. Which is a good thing. However if you have a room close to the highway, you may find the highway traffic noise a little distracting. On the positive side, the view from the balcony is fabulous.
To sum it up, we had a very comfortable stay in a hotel which is clean, efficent and well run.

Room Tip: Get a room on the upper floor and towards the end which is furthest away from the highway.

Thank you for the positive review and staying at the Inn!

It makes me happy to hear that you and your wife had a great time and enjoyed everything we have to offer. We love it when we connect the value of what we have to offer to those travelers who appreciate us. The location of the Inn (I think) is perfect. We are located right next to Dry Creek Road, which is the access to the Wilderness Canyons of Sedona.

We are very pleased you stayed with us and hopefully we will see you sometime in the future

Thank You!

This motel/inn is out of the flow in the west end of town. We stayed in a king room on the top floor near the back- quiet. The upstairs rooms are nice as they have back entrances with stairs for each 2 rooms. Pleasant landscaping and walkway. The room was very comfortable with gas fireplace, robes, fridge, and balcony. Red rock views are nice but slightly blocked by wires. It's a great location for hiking..we did Boynton Canyon and the vortex there- beautiful. Also for a day trip to Jerome.Great dinner at Dahl and Deluca just down the road. We ate breakfast at the Coffee Pot each morning since we're not into continental breakfast but the Southwest Inn breakfast area is nice and choices looked good. Staff were very nice and helpful. Would stay again- good value for Sedona.

Our first trip to Sedona and this was a great place to stay. The concierge was helpful, making good restaurant suggestions, and even reservations for one tour. Breakfast in the sunny dining area upstairs from the lobby was quite good. I only have one complaint: we would have liked to eat breakfast at the Inn every day -- unfortunately, service starts at 7:30 am -- and we were already gone by then on 3 out of 4 mornings. Breakfast should start earlier. But that's the only problem. Our suite was nice and clean, bed was really comfortable. We will stay here again.

Room Tip: Our upstairs room was quiet with a nice, if not spectacular, view.

The rooms are very comfortable with gas fireplace, luxury linens, nice toiletries, jacuzzi tub and separate shower, bathrobes and a very nice breakfast is included. There is an outdoor hot tub which was very nice and had some views of the red rock mountains. I wasn't crazy about the location because it was on the main highway through town so when sitting on the nice deck off of the room and breakfast room there is highway noise and exhaust fumes. Also the front desk people I spoke to were friendly but not very helpful with recommendations.

After a week of backcountry backpacking it was nice to pamper myself with the in-room spa tub. The room was very spacious, plenty of room for all of our gear and suitcases. Bed was very comfortable, fireplace was nice for relaxing and enjoying a cocktail. Staff was wonderful! Front desk was very helpful... everyone was pleasant and cheerful. Continental breakfast didn't have as much selection as some hotels but there was real silverware and colorful fiesta-ware dishes, not paper or plastic plates. Breakfast area is very clean and everything fresh. The architecture of the hotel allowed us to keep our door open to get fresh air but still have privacy, nobody able to walk past and look in. Close to convenience stores and only minutes from downtown shopping or red rock hiking. Will definitely stay here when we go back next year.

The location of the inn is excellent in terms of proximity to hiking and the view of the red rocks from the second story rooms.

Although the rooms aren't large, they are well equipped and the bed was comfortable.

The pool and spa were nice amenities.

The breakfast was okay.

I think the rates are very good and will definitely return on another trip tp Sedona.

The location is very nice, West Sedona, off the very touristy East Sedona Main Road. The staff at the hotel was very helpful. I was most impressed by the breakfast arrangement - real plates and silverware make you feel good about not generating tons of waste. The young lady in the breakfast area keeps everything meticulously clean and takes great care of the guests.
I was slightly disappointed by the room. While it was very clean, for the price paid I was expecting a little higher quality bathroom and furnishings. But I guess Sedona's prices are higher than the surrounding areas.
Overall, a very good experience.
