We stayed in a 2 bed deluxe by the creek. It was spacious and clean with all the facilities to meet our needs. We ate in the restaurant twice. Food and service was excellent. Prices were very reasonable and on a par with other restaurants in the area if not somewhat cheaper. Overall good value for money and much cheaper... More

We reserved a two bedroom cabin by the creek. The cabin was very spacious and clean. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, flat ware, utensils and pans. The bedrooms were large, one with two queen size beds and another with a king bed. Both bedrooms had large flat screen TVs as well as the living room. The cabin was... More

If you are looking for luxury go to Sedona. Kohl's Ranch is a great place for families and for people looking to escape from Phoenix heat and find a quiet, relaxing escape. It is not a luxury hotel. The 2 bedroom cabins by the creek have one small bathroom unless you get the deluxe cabin which is really a mobile... More

I thought everything about Kohl's Ranch was lovely. From the front desk service provided by Paul and Mia to the pristine cabin we had for the weekend, we couldn't be more pleased! This is the best bang for your buck when you are looking to get away from the heat of Phoenix. Just an hour and forty-five minutes away from... More

We had a reservation for two weeks in two rooms starting August 1st. We have been coming to Kohl's for several years. They started out as a pet friendly resort. Last year they changed that to pet friendly for their timeshare owners only. Not knowing this we showed up with our dog. The Manager was great about it and still... More

We arrived on a Saturday late afternoon at the end of June. The restaurant had prime rib as the special that night. We tried it and it was great. The waitress was very pleasant and attentive. We took a piece of pecan pie back to the room to eat later. It was served with butter pecan ice cream, and I... More

My adult son and I stayed here for 4 days near the end of June. We had requested a lodge room with 2 beds. They stated they were upgrading those rooms and putting in 1 king bed so I was pleased to get an un renovated one. I think they should keep some with the two bed option for travelers... More

We wanted to check out the property before using points to stay here. First I want to say the fish fry on Friday night was five star indeed. Excellent hand battered fish, thin chips as it should be and delicious cole slaw with fresh kale! The prime rib on Saturday was just ok for twice the price. Our room was... More

My wife and I have been Diamond owners since 2007 and have stayed at numerous properties. This ranks slightly above the Bell Rock Inn in Sedona as the worst property we have stayed at. We lasted 3 nights of 7 booked before leaving and coming home instead of 1 night at Bell Rock a few years ago on our anniversary... More

My hubby , 11 year old daughter and I stayed here June 5-6, 2015. What a great little place. Very clean, friendly and lots of amenities. The heated spa and pool were sparkling clean and just the right temp. Tons of yard games, see pics and beautiful location. Staff was super friendly and welcoming. We will definitely be back again....
