One of Sedona’s distinctive features is Airport Mesa, a large hill just south of downtown, which does indeed have a small airport on it. Also up there is this motel, which has a stupendous vista and lush grounds. From here you can see the entire red-rock country, with Sedona filling the valley below. Some rooms are basic; others have exposed wood beams on the ceilings; and some even have fireplaces, balconies, and kitchenettes. Even if you don’t have a view from your room, those great views are just steps away. With a pool and plenty of space for running around, this place will keep the kids happy. You can even walk up the road to watch planes and helicopters at the airport.
