El Portal Sedona provides an ideal alternative to the chain hotels. It offers a very comfortable feel and unique rooms in a convenient secluded location. Variety of self serve snacks and refreshments are available, some at a charge ($8 per glass of wine). The one problem we had with our tub was rectified immediately. The hosts were out of town during our stay but the staff did a great job of making us feel comfortable.

This was our third visit to El Portal. Each room we have stayed in was exquisite. The courtyard is a wonderful refuge, sitting around the fire pit, enjoying the pond and the flowers. The main common area is beautiful. There is always something interesting to see. It is great to be able to fill your water bottle with fresh water before heading out on the day's hike. The proprietor is a real gem. Great value for the money.

My husband and I visited the El Portal thanks to a gift certificate from our daughter and son-in-law who enjoyed their stay a few months prior. The outside of the property is rugged, but once inside the beautiful courtyard, lovely great room, and gorgeous individual accommodations, ruggedness is no longer part of the vocabulary. We traveled with our dog and had a beautiful room, complete with canopy bed, beehive fireplace, private patio where our doggy was invited to do his business, a luxurious bath with separate shower and Jacuzzi bath, and lovely little details like warm bathrobes, a basket of dog treats, chocolate chip cookies, small fridge, and an array of soaps and other products in the bathroom. Breakfast in the great room was very good, with clearly fresh ingredients, accommodating and courteous servers, and even our dog was welcome.

I found this beautiful hotel after searching many, many sites on the internet. It was not a huge resort (but shared the amenities of the resort next door). The rooms were amazing, the price very competitive and the breakfast was outstanding. This is the first review I have ever taken the time to write, but I am taking the time to write it because the hotel was so nice and there were so many other choices in the Sedona area. We will be back, but will never have to take the time to search out where to stay...it will be El Portal.

I stayed at this hotel twice. Initially, I chose it as I needed a place to stay with my dog. The hotel is centrally located, yet at the end of a cul de sac and quiet. The hacienda style architecture of the small hotel is beautiful. The rooms are spacious and furnished very beautifully. Our room was ready at check in time and we were greeted with a nice fire on n the fire place. The rooms, the bedding, and the bathrooms show their age and need replacing / more TLC. Our hot tub did not work. Staff readily helped to fix it quickly. The heat in our room did not work. A repair person was in the room before we arrived and after we checked out. The owners and staff can be rough at the edges and can get across a bit arrogant. Each night, the hotel lights a fire on the central patio, inviting guests (and their pooches) to sit a talk. Breakfast is offered in a very attractive space. Our server (who covers the maid service in the pm) was bordering on rude. But the food was good. There was no dining service offered. The setting is so nice that it was easy to overlook the lack of social graces seen in staff.
