Place was nice and the staff pleasent. Staff walked us through our room showed us the steam shower and pointed out how easy it was to use. We went to dinner and on our way back I hurt my knee walking up the poorly lit driveway and was looking forward to using it. When we were back in the room...

Thank you for staying with us. We apologize for the shower not working properly. We are having that looked at. (We understand this doesn't correct the problem for you). We know people love the bigger TVs, but we feel that they can overwhelm the rooms, and take away from their uniqueness. We do appreciate your comments.

My husband and I spent our first two nights in AZ at the El Portal Sedona. Couldn't have dreamed up a better place. Felt like we were staying with unpretentiously wealthy family friends! The rooms are exceptionally well appointed and cozy, owner on premise and very helpful, courtyard is inviting and beautiful!

We stayed at El Portal for 4 nights with our family of 4. Ann greeted us warmly upon our arrival, showed us the lovely spread of snacks (which my kids devoured after our long hike at the Grand Canyon earlier that day) and brought us up to our beautiful, large room with a balcony overlooking the courtyard. We had all...

It's a word used a lot, but rustic describes this comfortable gem the best. Often that description comes coupled with stories of things broken, old or unkempt. But in this case, it is accompanied by all the comforts, luxuries and conveniences you could think of. The owners have collected so many fascinating antiques and the rooms are filled with lamps,...

Absolutely breathtaking rooms and even better service! By the time we left we knew everybody and their dogs names. They provide every amenity to provide you and you're dogs with the comforts of home. I couldn't think of a single negative thing to say about this place. Wanting to go back next month because it was that amazing! Sara Romero

Stayed here for three nights in January and we had a wonderful time. Even the dog got a goodie basket in the room. It was cold and the fire was already lit awaiting our arrival. They have a afternoon snack layout available in the restaurant area too which is free for guests and a really lovely touch. Just what we...

We arrived at the El Portal a few hours earlier than check in time. Steve and Connie welcomed us with open arms, and said we'll have the room ready in 30 minutes.
