They need to supply hot chocoholic or chocolate milk at breakfast

Breakfast was good. And it was close to the hikikng area that we wanted to go

Clean rooms. Breakfast was okay. Wouldn’t give us a cot, even though we had special instructions to be provided with one.

I did not check out any of the amenities and I didn't see a NA option there. So I chose OK. The pool looked great however. I was very impressed by the friendliness of the check in staff and how clean and up to date the place was. My room was comfortable and the bathroom quite large with an incredible shower. I slept like a baby as the bed and pillows were comfortable. When I left at 430 the following morning Kevin was insistent on making sure I had a yogurt and a muffin to start my day and did I want a coffee or tea. He was very kind. This was my last night in Sedona as I was moving to Scottsdale and it was a great last night. Thank you.

Michael was an excellent resource to help us navigate our sightseeing adventures.

Very nicely located. Close to the city and to eating places. Sightseeing was easy from here.

Very nice room and quiet. Hotel close to hiking trail.

We only stayed one night on our way out of Sedona. Staff was friendly and the breakfast was a good hot and cold buffet. Rooms had good amount of horizontal space for luggage and bags. Beds were comfortable. Fridge and microwave were convenient and appreciated. HVAC was noisy and walls seem thin since we could hear voices, snoring and water running quite loudly from room next door.

Extremely impressed with staff, very friendly, and in more than one occasion shared with us places we could go to and scenic places we could visit during our stay. Showed us pictures on the computer and provided maps on how to get there.

I waited almost ten minutes to be noticed at check in.

This hotel was perfect for us. Away from the fray and traffic of uptown Sedona, with view of Bellrock. The hotel itself was very comfortable and clean. Rooms were clean, modern decor, good temperature. Beds/linens comfortable (and i am picky), and the softest towels! Bathrooms were bright and spacious. Staff very friendly and full of local recs (Michael!). The pool is heated. The free breakfast buffet was extensive and clean-something for everyone! Freshly made pancakes, warm cinnamon rolls, oatmeal, fruit, yogurt, eggs, biscuits and gravy! Great to have that before our Bell Rock hike. It is only a 5-7 minute easy walk to the Bell Rock trailhead which is great because parking can be difficult to get there. We were able to have breakfast, go for our hike, come back to our room and get showered off (lots of red dust from the rock scramble) and check out. There are also laundry facilities there!

The hotel is located near bell rocks. Walking distance to restrauant and trail. Even walking to bell rocks train. Good breakfast too!

Very helpful front desk. Nice breakfast, close to main sites at Sedona.

We stayed here during a very busy weekend. The place is clean, the rooms are pleasant and beds have sheet duvets. Lisa at the front desk is exceptionally pleasant and welcoming. This is a good value for the cost. Not downtown Sedona, but close enough.

Hotel has been recently remodeled. The staff seemed to struggle with check-in. This was not a Holiday Inn Express before the remodel and it's obvious. Noise between rooms is fairly loud for a hotel. We stayed in room 205. It's under the front entrance canopy. There is a speaker under the canopy about 4' from the window. The music is loud and plays well into the night and starts before first light. Good luck sleeping.

Sedona has three sections: the loud and earthy crunchy city portion, the tourist section, and the quiet section. The Holiday Inn Express in Sedona is in the quiet section. They are not kidding! My wife and I live in an urban environment with all kinds of noise outside our windows. We could not believe the pin drop silence in which we slept in our hotel room. Also, the bed sheets are such high quality, so soft, and so quiet (my wife normally complains when I shift around in our bed at home) that I want to call the hotel and find out how I can buy us a set of their sheets. This Holiday Inn Express hotel is only a year and a half old so everything is almost brand new. The room is nicely designed with a chaise lounge and includes a microwave and refrigerator. Free full hot breakfast is served daily from 6:30 - 9:30 AM. This was important since we had a van pick us up at 7:10 AM to take us on a 12 hour trip to and from the Grand Canyon. We were able to get breakfast before our all day excursion. The employees at the front desk were extremely helpful in providing us with information on local restaurants within walking distance. It was a great experience. We definitely recommend this hotel. If we ever return to Sedona, we will stay here again.

We booked a room in this hotel with the expectation that it would be for a few hours after a very delayed flight. We were definitely surprised with the cleanliness and overall ambience. So much that we ended up booking another night.

It was my first time staying at a HDI Express. This hotel was clean and modern, having recently been renovated. The bed was comfy. Definitely a great value for the price! Location is wonderful, as it is in the heart of Sedona. You will have to drive about 10 mins to the main attractions in the city, but by saving money and staying here, you will have more money to have fun on excursions and activities!

Looks renovated. It's clean. The breakfast was pretty good!

The staff are very accommodating. The place is very clean and the breakfast has a very good variety. The view of the surrounding is spectacular. The recommended restaurants are very good that's walking distance from the hotel.
