Currently my load center in in the garage on a wall that it not easily accessible, so I want to install a sub panel in the basement for easier access.

This requires me to run a cable through the garage into the basement.

My question. Does this cable need to be run through a conduit, or can I just secure it (romex) to the wall? And if I need a conduit, I assume once in the basement (unfinished), I no longer need the conduit, correct?

Can you fish the wire down the inside of the wall in the garage? Even if you had to cut the sheetrock and replace it, it will look better than conduit.
Unfortunately no, this is not just bringing it down through the floor to the basement. To get to the basement, I need to bring it all the way across to the other side of the garage. There is no type of attic space above that I could use either. So in any scenario, if I wanted to hide this behind drywall, I would need to cut into and drill a bunch of studs. Not worth it for a garage in my opinion.
