Loved staying at the beautiful El Portal with our dog. It was our first visit to Sedona, and the location of the hotel was great for hiking, shopping and restaurants. The staff made us feel welcome and very dog friendly. We will definitely be back!
we enjoyed the stay. We booked one night before we got there and then added a night once we had looked around. Its a small quiet place, not new, but very well kept. The outside hot tub was very good and we enjoyed the bird feeders with all the finches.Good location. Thanks
Great place to stay while taking classes at the local glass shop, The Melting Point. Selection of food sources nearby were plentiful and delicious. My room was wonderful and comfortable, slept great. Lovely quiet yard to lounge around. Sorry I missed a soak in the hot tub...next time. Jeanne
This is our second stay at El Portal and we loved it again. This time we stayed in the Hile Room with our three big dogs and it worked out perfectly for us. The bed was a fit firm for my liking but that's a personal preference so I didn't feel like it deserved a lower score.
if you are looking for quaint & homey yet still luxurious...this is your place. It's a beautiful room to come back to after a day of exploring sedona or the grand canyon....the fireplace place will be lit, dim lights on, linens & bed awaiting. Will definitely stay here again!
Location is excellent. Eating places are just a walk away. It is slightly away from main road so it is free from traffic noise disturbances. We didn't drive from Phoenix but took the shuttle from airport. The shuttle stops and pick up from this place though it may be a small Inn. The reception is most helpful when needed.
A beautiful, peaceful resort with impecable service and gorgeous rooms to stay in. A beautiful place to relax and enjoy all it has to offer. Top notch service and amenities for a weekend get away or just anytime you need an escape from life. I would highly recommend to anyone.
I enjoyed this Lodge very much. At first I was confused given the detox program attendees ( I was not one), regarding what I was allowed to eat and/or drink versus not. Morning chef always had coffee ready by 6am which I greatly appreciated given my tendency to rise early. Snacks were delicious however 3 days were apples only and I would have preferred slightly more variety in a fruit choice. Breakfast included was exceptional. For those of us guests not following detox, perhaps a Keurig coffee maker with cream or milk for any time of day availability. Other days were pears! On site laundry facility would be ideal as closest, while not far away at all is not convenient if hauling tons of laundry w/o a car. Staff courteous and friendly and everyone welcome to any sessions they offer despite not being part of retreat group. Thanks!
This was my first visit to Sedona, and I couldn't have picked a better location. It was very reasonably priced and located on a quiet side street in West Sedona. There are amazing hikes all around and it was very easy to navigate your way through the town via this location. There's a 5 minute walk to a bar and grill for night time and just plenty to look at all over town. The owner and staff were very friendly and helpful. The woman at the front desk let me take a copy of Great Sedona Hikes to my room to look through which was very helpful as I hiked the beautiful trails. If you're looking for the most bang for your buck (I'm pretty low maintenance mind you, I don't need frills) this is your spot.
We stayed at the Lodge for a wellness experience. My husband and I were looking for a great getaway and also focus on our health for the new year. We scheduled a few massages, got some treatments while there. My husband had an issue with his diabetes and luckily there was a doctor on staff that was able to assist us and get a prescription at the local pharmacy. This saved our whole trip. We added some meals for lunch and dinner. The meals were all organic and tasted great. We also had a few fresh made organic juices as well. This place has everything you can get in a small B&B. The room was charming and comfortable. Our room just had a stand up shower. Next time we will book a room with a tub. The staff was great and fun to be around. The best part was the people that we meet at the Lodge. They were all very nice and pleasant to be around. Many of the guests were on a wellness program and also getting massage and other therapies as well. The innkeeper made reservations for a jeep tour and a guided hike to the vortex, as well as making a few dinner recommendations in the area. We got back home refreshed and renewed from our stay at the lodge.
Relaxation assured in this beautiful home, built anew to feel old. Thick walls assure privacy, all the comforts of modern life are there, great fireplace with afternoon snacks, very welcoming hosts, and perks to access the resort amenities next door (pool, gym, spa, etc). And of course, the beauty of the surrounding area!!! With views from every room, an amazing place!
This place was beautiful and relaxing. My only complaint is the bed! For the price of the room I wo have expected a more comfortable bed. Truth is we slept on the couch pull out bed the last two nights because it was more comfortable than the actual bed! They really need to upgrade the beds. Otherwise the place was wonderful!
What a great find! El Portal Sedona is a lovely B&B with a great location and breath-taking views. The entire staff was very helpful and accommodating. The effervescing tub in the Flat Rock Hickory room is decadent!
Beautiful hotel, thoughtfully designed. Our room was very spacious and tastefully decorated. A dog-lovers paradise. Heating system was noisy for light sleepers, but otherwise rooms were quiet. Great location.
This is a wellness center for detox not your normal B&B. Very disappointed!
This was our first trip to Red Rock Country. The lodge was a great place to stay for many reasons, including excellent gourmet breakfast and snacks, a very nice room with a fireplace, and an excellent location for hiking. We will definitely return again!
Spent a night in December to hike in Sedona. This was our second visit and stay at the Lodge at Sedona. Staff was very friendly and courteous. Room was very nice and enjoyed the fireplace. Would stay here again
What a wonderful gem in the most breathtaking city in North America. This was our fifth visit to El Portal, and it again was absolutely perfect. The location, immediately adjacent to the Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts village is wonderful. Just walk over and browse through amazing fine art galleries, or have a truly amazing meal at Rene or El Rincon. The service at El Portal is always top notch, and the breakfasts in the Great Room are to die for! And, of course, El Portal is pet friendly, which means that our dogs can join us for an amazing weekend in the red rocks. Overall, one of the best places we have stayed anywhere in the world.
We stayed at this B&B for our anniversary, in December 2014, in the Southwest Room. The room was okay, but we didn't like that the tub looked worn and dirty and the caulking around it was dirty as well. The three-course breakfast was delicious and the Innkeeper for the Day, Brandon, made our morning quite wonderful. He was delightful to speak with and gave us a tour of the inn, so we could see other rooms available.
The room and convenience were wonderful. Steve, Connie, and Terry are great - very helpful. Our complaint - we weren't told that they were serving Thanksgiving dinner until we arrived on Wed. We had made non-cancellable reservations elsewhere.
