This 12 room inn is a work of art. You feel like you are staying in a small lodge built in 1910. Decorated in the Arts and Crafts style, with a hint of Adobe thrown in. Attention to detail is everywhere. Inside the main lobby has beautiful beams, large windows and stone fireplace, surrounded by comfortable Stickley furniture. The courtyard... More

We loved our first stay at El Portal with our dog! As regular Sedona visitors, we try to avoid the regular touristy spots, but still like to go to the popular areas and restaurants as well. El Portal was perfect, being centrally located, but once at the hotel feeling totally removed from the hustle and bustle! We stayed in room... More

Alas, we had only one night at this hotel, but we loved everything about it. The whole place is extremely quiet, with large and very clean well furnished rooms, a lovely courtyard with a terrific fire pit in the evenings/night, delicious and generous breakfast in a very pleasant room, extremely helpful staff - perfect blend of friendly and professional. Easy... More

My wife and I had a very pleasant stay at El Portal. This was our first time to Sedona and we wanted to make sure we stayed somewhere that embraced the character of the surrounding scenery. This place nailed it! Key Positives: Extremely friendly staff, within walking distance to the downtown "strip" (less than 1 mile), FREE access to hotel... More

We loved our three nights at this lovely inn organized around a central courtyard where an outdoor fire was made for the guests every night. In fact the courtyard is so pretty we ended up having takeout dinner there one night as we couldn't bring ourselves to leave the beautiful peace and quiet. Our room had a fireplace, great big...

We loved our 5-night stay at this hotel! We have traveled around the world, and would place the El Portal experience in the top one percent. It is perfectly located -- easy to walk to restaurants and galleries. However, what we loved most was the quiet beauty of the rooms which are creatively designed with a craftsman's eye for detail...

This small hotel is fairly new to the Sedona area. The owner built it to resemble a Hacienda in the most authentic way possible. While fairly new - it has a well lived feel. Very romantic, stunning rooms, the courtyard is wonderful. Completely closes you off of the bustle of Sedona - even though it is right in town! You... More

I searched for B&B's or Inns for my first trip to Sedona, traveling with 3 friends. I was struck by the description of this Inn, and now can say the descriptions were completely accurate. This is simply a wonderful place to stay in Sedona. We rented 2 rooms (#9 and #11), and both were spacious, interesting and comfortable. The Inn,... More

The staff are amazing. Terri welcomed us like we were long lost relatives and made us feel instantly at home. She also had wonderful advice on restaurants, tours to take (or avoid) and showed us where everything was. Dog friendly hotel and the owners (Connie and Steve) dogs are terrific and love treats! There is a fire every night and... More

This was our first trip to Sedona and we are thrilled that we chose the El Portal for our home base. The staff and owners are absolutely first class, always happy to provide a suggestion for where to eat, where to go (and where to park once you get there!) and where to avoid. Our room (number 10) featured a... More
