We stayed there for several nights. Checking in was a breeze. The staff was very friendly, and helpful with local information. The room was super rustic and clean, just what we hoped to find in the mountains. We loved the individual outside patios, cozy and charming. Perfect for winding down with a night cap while watching the wildlife come to... More

I had a reservation for two set up over a month in advance. Unfortunately, I ended up arriving and being told that the hotel had overbooked and that I no longer had a room. They offered a room with two twin beds instead of a king. This did not work because I was on a romantic retreat with my fiance... More

Stayed 5 nights at Kohl's Ranch via Diamond Resorts exchange on Oct 2014. Resort is generally old western ranch rustic fitting the location well. Grounds are well maintained and public areas are clean and comfortable. Rooms are clean but are in need of remodeling and restructuring the layouts. Current style leaves some comforts lacking. Be better if they could at... More

My husband and I stayed in a studio for 2 nights and were pleased with our accommodations, everything we needed on a small scale, i.e. dishes for 2, small oven, stove, refrigerator and microwave. We had some trouble with the internet but there is a number they gave us to call and it was taken care of. We loved having... More

This lovely Ranch style hotel is a favorite of ours when we want to get up to the cooler mountains from the Phoenix area. Not a far drive, and close to all the hiking trails we love to discover. Full of Fall colors right now! The front desk staff are very helpful - from telling you everything you need to... More

We chose the 2-bedroom cabin with hot tub on the porch overlooking little Tonto Creek near Payson. Our third stay here to watch the spectacular changing leaves on the Mogollon Rim. . The rustic nature of wood cabins steeps you in the ambiance of a Zane Grey novel (from the 1920s and earlier).And yet, the cabin has been refreshed with... More

We really enjoy Kohl's Ranch Lodge because we find it very relaxing or you can be as busy as you desire. Our favorite partial kitchen room in the Lodge helps to make it our home away from home atmosphere. The Staff are friendly and efficient, very accomadating. We would like to see better quality meal items available at the restaurant.

Went here with my wife for a 2-3 day stay. The rooms are best described as rustic with a country-western feel. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised with the room. Clean and nice. Beautiful setting. The food at the hotel was actually very good. Again, I was surprised. The overall experience was friendly and quiet. This hotel has... More

I added a couple of days at Kohls Ranch onto an itinerary driving from LA to Texas. This was one of my best ideas of the month. It is tucked in the ponderosa pine forest of the Rim Country (a term I discovered while there) and driving out from Phoenix you would have no idea it was going to turn... More

We had a wonderful week in a 2 bedroom cottage overlooking Tonto Creek. The creek was full due to a recent storm so the lovely sound of rushing water lulled us to sleep each night and the air is sooo fresh!. The cottage was clean & comfortable for the 2 of us but I couldn't imagine sharing it with 2... More
