We are travelling with a dog and it is rare to find someplace this nice to stay. So it was quite a nice surprise to find el Portal. At the front desk, Terri was amazingly helpful and professional. Ann was also equally as accommodating but we didn't see her as much on the days we were there. The hotel is... More

What a marvelous hotel--more like a bed and breakfast. Rooms are uniquely decorated--choose your room online when you book your stay. We brought our two chihuahuas on their first-ever vacation with us. While the dogs weren't as well-behaved as we hoped, the staff at El Portal made us all feel at home! Great breakfast available, and the staff gives great... More

If you're looking for a comfortable and charming inn with friendly proprietors close enough for prime shopping, dining and walking yet removed enough from the hustle and bustle of the main thorough-fare, plus have a open-hearted welcome for dogs as a bonus, look no further than El Portal. The rooms are attractively designed and very spacious with a sitting area,... More

Beautiful, understated luxury in great location. Owners were attentive but respectful of privacy and helpful with ideas and reservations in the area. Walking distance to restaurants and beautiful galleries as well as spa services.

When was the last time you had a key for the main lodge after hours, offering wine and beer, etc., on the honor system? Free coffee. Nostalgia and utter serenity define this small, privately owned retreat. It's like being in a rustic 5-star resort from a classic movie, although conveniently in town. We, too have stayed in top places (re:... More

Although I consider myself to be a Ritz Carlton/Four Seasons/Mandarin Oriental kinda guy, I selected El Portal for my wife and me based on the strength of the TripAdvisor reviews. We were not disappointed. Steve and Connie built this place from the ground up as their dream inn, complete with adobe walls, natural tones, amazing wooden beams and antique hardware.... More

As soon as you walk through the gates of El Portal, you realize the website does not do it justice. I stayed there with 3 girlfriends for 3 nights (we are all in our 30s) and we absolutely loved it! It was so quiet and we felt like we were tucked-away in a private B&B. We visited several other resort... More

We recently stayed at El Portal. We chose it because we needed a place that was pet friendly. We had a lovely time. The room was beautiful but dark. On the last day, I ran into the owner and when I mentioned it to him he said "I will take care of that by the end of today). The soaking... More

My family and I stayed at El Portal in late April. Each of our spacious rooms had thick adobe walls, huge exposed beams with vaulted ceilings, and each room was unique starting with the one of a kind room door. I loved the unusual antique furniture, lamps, and art in all of our rooms, and the Navajo rugs displayed throughout... More
