El Portal is truly the definition of a puppy friendly hotel! We enjoyed our stay this past holiday weekend and were immediately greeted by the staff, who provided treats and blankets for our dogs. We had an amazing time and enjoyed all the amenities that were provided!

Great stay at El Portal

4.6 on October 28, 2016

We loved Sedona and El Portal. The location was perfect for us, i.e. right in the center of town but with a very secluded and relaxing feel. We would definitely stay there again if we return to Sedona for another visit.

two night stay

3.4 on October 24, 2016

We had a gift certificate given to us for our wedding, we were finally able to pick a time to get away to Sedona. I selected the Rim View room, I was expecting a little more of a view, you can see the rim out of the side window in the room but only the top part due to a chimney was in the way. Other than that the room was beautifully decorated, the bathroom was huge and the room was clean. The staff was very friendly and they had a nice little happy hour with cheese, crackers, salsa, chips, grapes. It was nice to be able to sit outside in their nice patio area. I liked the fact that we were right there at Tlaquepaque for dining and shopping, also just a 15 minute walk to Uptown Sedona for more shopping and dining. El Portal is definitely worth staying at. Thanks, The Mitchell's

Perfect spot for pet lovers!

4.0 on October 11, 2016

We were on a quick getaway from Phoenix with our dog and this was the perfect spot! Not only did we love The Inn, our dog really seemed at home there too. Our room had a sweet little patio and then an area for dogs - fenced - which was really great because we could leave the door open to enjoy the beautiful day and he could roam In and out. Room felt more like a studio apt than a hotel room. Owners super friendly, gave us a great hiking recommendation and is in a perfect spot to park your car and not move till you leave Sedona. We'll be back for sure!

Magical Place

5 on September 12, 2016

Lovely, magical inn in a quaint, quiet location right next to the Tlaquepaque Shopping Area. El Portal is pet friendly with pet yards attached to many of the suites. The fitness center, spa, and pool at the neighboring property, Los Abrigados, are available gratis to El Portal guests. The suites are spacious and artfully decorated. The staff is sweet, accommodating, and more importantly, trustworthy. I left ALL of my expensive jewelry in a drawer, and they sent it to me via Fed-Ex the next day. I dare to praise them too much, as I want this magical place to stay a secret. Ssssshhhh!

Thank you for your wonderful review! We appreciate you taking the time to write it and share your El Portal Sedona Hotel experiences! We hope to see you again!


Amazing hotel that is very pet friendly

5 on September 05, 2016

Most places we looked at for lodging in Sedona say they are pet friendly but in actuality are pet tolerant. El Portal was excited about us bringing our 105 pound Bloodhound and his 55 pound Bassett brother. There is no pet fee and the dogs have nearly as much run of the property as the people do. The rooms are large, well appointed and extremely comfortable. If you are bringing dog(s) on your stay then you will want to get a suite with private fenced yard; which was surprisingly affordable, especially when compared to the other local options. Overall we loved our stay at El Portal. We will be staying there again when next we visit Sedona.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your wonderful review! We're so glad you brought your dogs - we love it when our guests bring their pets! Thank you for choosing El Portal Sedona Hotel on your trip to Sedona. We're looking forward to your next visit!


Cant wait to return

My stay at El Portal Sedona was nothing short of amazing! It made a wonderful pit stop along my road trip to TN for a new job. I had my small dog and cat in tow and they were warmly received which reduces so much stress when traveling with pets. The room was exquisite and so comfortable and the delicious breakfasts are not to be missed -- definitely tap into the hosts extensive knowledge of Sedona and the best places to hike and explore. I can't wait to return! Thank you.

Innkeeper Response
