“Quiet setting south of main stream Sedona”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

Away from all the hussle and bussle, this quiet motel fits the bill for nearby hiking, eating, and shopping. Rooms are spotless, parking is a breeze, courteous and knowledgeable staff, plus beautiful hills surround the motel. Just north are three places for hiking complete with easy access parking. Chapel of the Holy Cross is also a few miles north. The drive on 179 into or from Sedona proper is most lovely!

Room Tip: Rooms do not have a microwave; however, the refrigerator is a nice size. AC is quiet and easy to ad...

Hands down the cleanest place we stayed on our two-week vacation. Best overall value, half to twice as inexpensive as all the other places in Sedona. The rooms did not have a view, but by the time we got back to the room it was dark anyway. We found that you go sightseeing and then come back to the cleanest most comfortable room. Can't wait to go back. Don't spend money on a room with a view, get out of the room and go to the view!! Now doesn't that make more sense. Spend your money in the local shops and restaurants!

The Desert Quail Inn located just outside Sedona in Oak Springs is great value for money, well appointed, quiet and in a top location if you don't mind not being walking distance from the majority of restaurants etc.

There is a grocery store right behind the complex and a couple of other specialty stores.

The view up 179 North towards Sedona beats the views from Sedona itself. Really nice quiet spot. Very pleased, would recommend and happily return. Front desk staff very helpful.

Room Tip: If offered a wheelchair accessible room, think twice - the shower isn't very good for those who...

We stayed at the Desert Quail for three nights while visiting Sedona. The Desert Quail is the perfect budget option for those staying in the area. The Quail is clean, has nice beds, and has close, easy dining options. One can go to the supermarket next door for breakfast/lunch or dine at the Red Rock Cafe for a sit-down breakfast. Oak Creek was a lot quieter on the weekends than in the main area of Sedona. I highly recommend the Quail for budget travelers.

The Quail also has beautiful views of the red rock formations!

Staff is helpful and sincere. Rooms are clean. Great location, convenient parking. Quiet. Large rooms, with average interior. The price is reasonable for beautiful, expensive Sedona. I feel lucky to have found the Desert Quail Inn. I would definitely return.

Found on trip advisor - recommended and didn't disappoint. Value good as in Oak Creek not Sedona so cheaper but you need a car to get anywhere. You can see Bell Rock from entrance to motel. No breakfast but 2 minute walk to restaurant and grocery store where you can pick up supplies (and wine!!). Room does have fridge and coffee maker also there is a pool. Note to get from Oak Creek to Sedona there are lots of roundabouts so prepare yourself for them. A lot of the hikes i.e. Bell Rock, Cathedral Rock are off highway from Oak Creek to Sedona all marked. Would recommend this motel easily.
