Reviewed October 9, 2012

The Desert Quail staff were very accommodating and hospitable. This older motel was very clean with comfortable beds and modern updated amenities. The pool was clean and set back off the road. This motel was a good value. The red rock cafe for breakfast and a grocery store are behind the motel.

Room Tip: There are a few rooms that have a partial view of the red rocks!

We stayed here for 2 nights and were pleasantly surprised...rooms are very clean and spotless and the management will take of your needs.
They don't have a fitness center but for five Dollars you can go to a gym which is 2 blocks away and that gym is huge! For breakfast you can go to a one minute away restaurant which serves huge portions of breakfast. Since you will have a rental car anyway you can just drive to Sedona center if you want to see it.
Also the view from the hotel is spectacular. You will see the red rocks in the morning when you get out of your room...all in all I would always recommend this hotel.
Be sure to reserve your room early otherwise it might be sold out already because it is in such high demand..

Room Tip: If you have a lot of luggage ask for a room on the ground floor

We just returned from Sedona and stayed three nights at the Desert Quail Inn. What a delightful experience! The rooms were recently renovated and everything was spotless and new. The manager went out of his way to be helpful and was very friendly.
There is a good place for breakfast across the parking lot as well as a convenient grocery store.
We went all over Sedona from this location as a base and highly recommend this motel.

Great value for the Sedona area. Just a few easy miles south of the center of Sedona. Nice big rooms and wonderful foam matress on a king bed. Best bed of the trip! All usual room amenities were excellent. Just to note - a convenient SubWay across the street is great to grab a sandwich in the morning to take on your day's hike!

We were only able to stay at this hotel one night as they were quite booked (Fri night). We were impressed w/the site. It was completely remodeled/painted, was very clean, and comfortable. The views are amazing. As Sedona rates go, this was reasonable. The only disappointment was in not having breakfast included, however, we were directed to an awesome breakfast restaurant directly behind the hotel which had fabulous food and decent prices. Couldn't ask for more at these rates. Would definitely stay again.

I stayed at 5 hotels in 10 days during my Southwest Trip and Desert Quail Inn offered the best value....It was also very close to being the nicest Suite I stayed at. My room was new, the decor was fresh, warm and inviting, and the unit was clean with good sound proofing. This was probably the best bed I slept in during my trip and the room had King Bed, nice couch, Coffee maker, good A/C, and a Flat screen TV with Direct TV service. There was no Breakfast I was aware of, but the Red Rock Cafe was only a few steps away, Cafe Jose a nice walk. (may I suggest a partnership to the Owner)
Location is nice in quiet Oak Creek with Restaurants, viewpoints and shopping nearby (walking distance). It is about 10 minutes from Downtown Sedona by Car.
The Owner is interesting to talk to and he has a strong commitment to the success of the operation and therefore the Guest's comfort and satisfaction.

Room Tip: I stayed in a King Suite on the second Floor, roomy and comfy

I am actually writing this review from the only downfall of this room, the bed is quite hard. You'll see, however, that I give this place an excellent review. We paid $85 taxes inc. for our roomm, bew HD TV with Direct TV, King bed, couch, table, coffee maker, air conditioner that works great. I definitely recomend staying here if you are coming to check out the energy vortexes. You wlil not regret it.

Right across the street are some outlet malls for quick easy shopping, on the other side about 200 feet from the hotel is a large grocery store complete with alcohol.

Staff was amazingly helpful too offering solutions to questions we hadn't even thought to ask simply because she knows the area and knows things we may be looking for. A+

Room Tip: We stayed in 102 and had absolutely no issues
