My wife and I were looking for a base while spending time in Sedona and Oak Creek. We were not looking for fancy but comfortable. It was just that. The rooms were need and modern and the furniture was in good shape. Great t.v. with plenty of channels. My wife wanted to take the mattress home with us. We had people above us and on both sides and the noise was minimal. We will use this place again.

The one negative was the shower. Both my wife and I are in our mid 60s. We don't mind showers but would prefer a non slip surface or a portable mat that could be placed in the tub. Could be a little dangerous. Have seen this in many places and don't understand why these precautions are not taken.

Still a good stay and we will be back.

This remodeled motel in Village of Oak Creek near Sedona is a best kept secret. It is conveniently located right on Hwy 179. Great value for the money. Owner grew up in the motel business. He has gutted and remodeled the place in the past year or so. Beds are extremely comfortable. Furnishings look more like those of an upscale hotel. Vanity area has granite counter tops. HD TV, mini fridge, microwave, free WIFI. Large comfortable rooms.

We drove in extremely tired from a long day on the road. We had failed to request a downstairs room in our reservation. The motel was booked solid for the night. We had one night there before our flight out of PHX the next day. We had several pieces of heavy luggage to manage, which would have been a real effort to lug to an upstairs room. (My husband is age 70, I am age 60.) We explained our need for a downstairs room, and the owner very graciously accommodated us. He also printed boarding passes for us the next morning. His desk clerk was an IT person and was very helpful getting us hooked up to the internet on our laptop.

Is this the place you would want to stay for your week's vacation in the Sedona area? Maybe not. But it sure was a great find for a one night stay! You can't beat it for the value when you are just passing through town and basically need a shower and a comfortable bed for a good night's rest. I would highly recommend this motel to anyone for a short stay in the area.

Room Tip: Be sure to tell the person taking the reservation if you need a lower floor room. This places fills...

Stayed here recently on vacation. This is a beautiful property and hosted by the most friendly family. Rooms are excellent and rates are very reasonable. The location is great for sightseeing in the area. Would definably recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Oak Creek or Sedona area.

The room was spotless, freshly painted, fresh, and roomy. It's an excellent value for your money, though definitely away from Sedona proper. The views nearby are gorgeous red rocks and it's easy to navigate the area. Definitely try the Red Rock Cafe in the strip mall behind the motel. They serve an excellent breakfast for a great price. I found the owner to be very aloof when interacting with me, though - not what i expected after reading other reviews.

Everyone has already said it all. New, clean rooms with refrigerator and micro. Wifi is fast. Management is very helpful.
Not sure why everyone is talking about the view. All rooms have one window facing center court. 100's, 200's definitely have no views. The red rocks are near but can't be seen from the rooms. Even the manager says there is no view from rooms. But don't let that stop you. Great motel and great price.

Room Tip: No elevators so get 1st floor.

We stayed here for the first time and it is well worth it as the price is very very competitive and plenty of amenities nearby. The rooms are spacious with all mod cons and free wifi. Very pleasant staff and very helpful. Oh there is also a pool which we forgot about as out and about all the time but looked nice and clean. No complaints at all.
