I stayed for 2 nights in Desert Quail Inn, and overall it was a good stay. From the pictures on the hotel website, I thought it would be in a desert with nothing around but luckily it is surrounded by stores, gas stations, and close to restaurants. I drove from Phoenix airport and tried to set my GPS to the hotel address but the GPS couldn't find it. So, I set the GPS for Highway 179 in Sedona, and after I got to Hwy 179, I called the hotel for directions and I was told that I was only 3 blocks away from the hotel. I think the reason my GPS didn't pick up the address was either because the hotel is actually in the village of Oak Creek or because my GPS didn't have an updated map of the area. The drive took about and hour and forty five minutes from Phoenix.
As I am a light sleeper, when I checked-in I asked for a room away from the noise, and the lady at the reception gave me a room on the upper floor (there are only 2 floors), and I slept well both nights and was not disturbed. The rooms have a mini-fridge and a microwave, which came in very handy to buy and keep frozen food and microwave it. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable, and from the second floor one can get a nice view of the Red Rocks and the desert around. The scenic views and Red Rock parks within a few minutes drive and downtown Sedona is not far away, if one can get used to navigating the roundabouts. I think I counted 9 roundabouts to get to downtown Sedona, which has a Safeway, Walgreen and a lot of stores and restaurants.
The hotel doesn't have breakfast or a restaurant but there is a restaurant adjacent to the hotel where hotel customers can get 10% discount on meals. The hotel reception area doesn't even have any furniture to sit but has a PC for hotel customers to use. The rooms have free wifi, which was good. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful to give me directions to places and even print me directions to take with me. Overall, I had a good stay.
