Nice motel. We have found a place to stay every time we visit Sedona. Large spacious rooms and well kept up and well kept clean. The front desk was informative and friendly. The WIFI work just fine. No breakfast, again we knew about it from our previous stay. The breakfast place next door is great. The only thing about this motel, older building and so some noise from upstairs, but that only lasted a short time. Will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: all the rooms are the same.

This was our 2nd favorite of 5 hotels on our November 2013 Arizona road trip. We stayed 2 nights. We liked the location in Oak Creek, but were a bit sorry we were so far from the activities in West Sedona. When we came back through Sedona on our return to Phoenix, we splurged and stayed at a BW Plus in Western Sedona. It was much more expensive, and we didn't think the closer location made up for basically the same room. We discovered we don't really care for a hotel where the only window in the room looks out on a walkway. The DQ has this, but it was okay for the price.
The DQ 2-Q room had the refrigerator we always look for, but no breakfast. This turned out to be fine, because we loved the breakfast at the cafe behind the hotel.

We appreciated that the person at the reception desk warned us about the difference in sales taxes in Downtown Sedona (12% vs. 6% in West Sedona and Oak Creek).

Highlights were: dinner across the street at the place with the live music (can't recall the name, but it's in the outlet mall-let), dinner at Elote, Dia de los Muertos at Tlaquepaque Village, sunset at viewpoint near airport, hike to Bell Rock, Jerome, and wineries in the area.

Would probably stay here again.

We booked a night at the Desert Quail Inn based on other Trip Advisor Reviews and they were right on. This is just a little motel in Sedona, not a resort or anything fancy but the price is very reasonable, the staff friendly, the room big and clean....what more could you want! This property fit our needs to a T and it was nice to not have to break the bank! The location is also great and close to lots of good places to eat!

Normal, outside entrance hotel, nothing out of the ordinary. Clean, comfortable room. Quiet area. Staff is pleasant. Rooms must be paid for in advance, no refunds.
No breakfast included.
Wouldn't rule out staying here again, but might look around first.

First, you need to know this is in the Village of Oak Creek, which is south of Sedona but locals consider this Sedona area. Its a straight shot up 179 to the heart of Sedona, thru the traffic circles, but this a great place to acess Bell Rock or Cathedral Rock hiking sites. No doubt this is a "bucket list" worthy area to visit.

The web site and on phone, the hotel doesn't give off warm fuzzzies but in person they were great.

The room was a bit worn but clean & comfortable. Basic, no frills, but fine. In double queen, the room was large, but could have used more furniture. Had 2 chairs & table. Would have been nice to have a more comfortable chair.

No Breakfast included, but ok with us. Back of property is a walk thru to a nice breakfast place, The Red Rock Cafe.

Folks are friendly and welcoming but a bit strong in their policy. However, they refunded us, unasked, $ as the room requested was not what we had. And that was because we asked for something else at check-in. Good ethics!

Pool is outside, so closed in winter.

Would we stay again? Yep! Good value in an area that thinks YOU should be glad they are there.

Classic motel, few amenities, but let's face it, unless you're here for a spa vacation you're not going to spend much time in your room. It's a great base of operation for hiking, near Bell rock and courthouse loop. The rooms are clean and comfortable, in the red rock café next door offers outstanding breakfast choices. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the room comfortable.
