We've visited Kohl's Ranch several times and have always enjoyed our stay in the Studio rooms. Paul at the front desk makes us feel like VIPs at check-in and all of the front desk team are friendly and quick to help. Note that this property is a traditional mountain lodge, so don't expect the sterile plastic feel of a chain... More

The front desk service was really ready exceptional. Nice rooms surprisingly well equipped with almost a full kitchen. The bed was very comfortable. Old fashioned in wall air-condition makes a little noise. Great atmosphere. The bar was good was well worth a stop.

Stayed here for six nights, very peaceful and quiet, no nightlife so a perfect opportunity to wind down completely and explore some of the nearby attractions. Staff friendly and helpful, not a lot to do unless you want to explore the nearby Rim area or escape from the valley heat. I loved the clean mountain air and quiet nature of... More

A surprising western lodge off the beaten path. Very quiet with a great pool, jacuzzi, saloon and restaurant. We were greated by Paul at the front desk who was wonderful and made us really feel welcome! A good menu in the restaurant and a fun saloon and wonderful waitress Candy! Just an FYI the restaurant is not open for breakfast... More

Paul was awesome!! He answered any questions we had and was extremely friendly! He is truly an asset to Kohl's Ranch! We are already planning a trip to bring our family back with us! They have so much to do while you are staying there. Our room had a fireplace and kitchenette, it was like home away from home. We... More

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
