We stayed at the Desert Quail Hotel for 6 days in September 2013. The Owner checked us in and was so courtious and helpfull. Our room was very big with all the facilities we wanted. The bed was very comfortable and the couch and recliner arm chairs made for a very comfortable stay. The staff were most helpfull with information on places to see and the scenic drive to Flagstaff which was amazing. Sunset at Sedona Airport viewing area is well worth the visit. We meet other guests who recomended we visit Jerome and that was another memorable place. We found the Desert Quail an ideal base for our visits to Wimslow ( to stand on the corner) The Grand Canyon and Sedona. We also enjoyed some time relaxing at the pool and recharging the batteries. We would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone planning a trip to this most scenic area.

We stayed 4 night's and it was perfect. Beautiful clean room, with a big flat screen TV, wifi , fridge and the owner was very helpfull. The hotel is located nearby Sedona, it is a short drive aprox. 15 minutes. The price was right. Next year we will go back to Desert Quail Inn, because we loved it.

My wife and I stayed here in week 1 October based on earlier good reviews. It definitely exceeded our expectations - large very clean room, comfortable bed, quiet, everything we had hoped for, and at such a low nightly price. The staff were excellent and very friendly, The young lady manning the desk during the day gave us excellent travel advice and driving instructions, recommending a visit to the old mining town, Jerome, which we thoroughly enjoyed. The young lady on duty in the evening recommended a really good restaurant in a small shopping mall across the street - great food! There's also a large grocery store and a great little breakfast cafe within a short walk from the back of their parking lot, We stayed on the 2nd floor, with a view of the surrounding Sedona landscape from our balcony, which I have posted here as well. All in all, highly recommended!

We stayed here at the end of a 25 day road trip. Whilst Sedona was heaving with tourists the Desert Quail was a tranquil oasis. The rooms are large and well appointed. The heated swimming pool was a bonus in October. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance.

It is a little further from Sedona (in the "unincorporated Sedona" as we were told by the front desk - I think this translates into "not really in Sedona, in Oak Creek") but close enough and way better value for the money than anywhere in town at least as far as we could tell. Got a lovely BIG room with a fireplace and jacuzzi, and enough room for a pullout and a cot with the 4 of us. Having a fireplace was really nice at night. It is motel style, but the rooms are much more, and it is very quiet. Right next to a grocery store which is convenient. The only comment I have is that the front desk staff are not the friendliest. We tried to ask many questions about stuff to do or places to go and they weren't extremely helpful or all that nice. But don't let that deter you, because it is a wonderful hotel.

We found the Desert Quail Inn to be inexpensive, clean, and modern. Nick was very accommodating. I neglected to mention my need for a ground level room when booking our room. Nick was able to find a room for us. He seemed to recognize our needs before we did by offering dining suggestions and events. His customer service was excellent. The room was updated, clean, and comfortable. We will definitely stay there again.

We stayed for two nights recently at Desert Quail Inn. It is conveniently located in Oak Creek...a beautiful 15 minute drive from Sedona. We were not sorry that we decided to stay in Oak Creek, rather than in downtown Sedona. The hotel has recently been renovated and was very reasonably priced! All details in our room were very nice, except some older-looking pink curtains that evidently hadn't been replaced yet. Everything was very clean. Our only real complaint was that the bed was really, really firm. Even though Desert Quail is an old-style motel building, it was very quiet. We never heard anything from the floor upstairs, either room beside us,or outside. The owner(who was on duty the entire time- morning and night) was very helpful and welcoming. If we come back to the Sedona area, we will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ground floor is better if you have a lot of luggage.
