This place is fantastic. Most of the hotels in Sedona cost much more than what we wanted to spend, and I'm so glad that we ended up with this one. I had been worried it'd be sketchy, but it totally wasn't at all. Here's my breakdown:
Room: It was a great size and looked much nicer than I had originally anticipated. Everything was clean and in great condition. Our beds were really comfortable and the rooms did a good job of shutting out noise. The only minor thing was that you had to move around the toilet to shut the bathroom door because it's a bit small, but that's a total non-issue in the grand scheme of things. I was really impressed with the room overall.
Amenities: Refrigerator, microwave, good-sized TV, free wi-fi and parking - those were the main ones I cared about, and it had them all.
Location: It's located in the Village of Oak Creek, which is outside of Sedona proper. You're very close to both Bell Rock and Cathedral Rock, which is super convenient (because those are two of the most popular hikes), and walking distance to Cucina Rustica. Desert Quail is also right next to a supermarket (which is great if you want a simple breakfast or late-night snack) and Red Rock Cafe, which is a wonderful breakfast/lunch spot. The only thing is that you're not right in Uptown/West Sedona - I'd say it's about a 10-25 minute drive depending on how far in each section you're going. I didn't really find it to be a big deal, since the drive is so beautiful both ways, but it's just something to keep in mind when planning the day so that you're not going back and forth all the time.
Safety: I felt completely safe here. Sedona's not a town where I'd feel unsafe in general compared to the city, but the outside of the hotel doesn't look run-down and it looks like it's in a secure area. I didn't have any qualms about this issue during my stay.
Overall, it's not a resort, but if you're looking for a nice place to relax after a long day, then this is perfect. It's a super reasonable price considering the quality of everything, and the staff is really friendly and helpful. If we return to Sedona, this is where we'll probably stay!
