“Just as advertised!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

We spent only one night in this very nice, comfortable motel in the heart of Sedona. And as others have said, it's not fancy and may be a just a bit on the shabby side, but not really.... We had a week at the time share at the Hyatt starting the next day and only needed one night here. It was so nice and comfortable I would not hesitate to come here again. The room was quite large and our two double beds were very comfortable. The balcony was huge and I wish I'd had more time to enjoy watching the people out on the street.
There was also a small mini-fridge available that I didn't know about from reviews or the website that was very nice to have. The hotel employees were extremely helpful with suggestions for walking, food, and activities. Excellent, low-cost motel in prime location!!

Room Tip: We were on the end with a huge balcony overlooking Sedona uptown. Very quiet and comfortable

Nice, clean, little motel in great location. Room was very comfortable and clean with a good bed. Beautiful view from room with a deck. Lots of shops and eateries close by. The Shops at Pinion Pines, Hyatt timeshare property, is only a few blocks away with a Starbucks and a Wildflower restaurant which was perfect for breakfast and coffee. We enjoyed our stay.

The Hotel is right in the middle of uptown Sedona and a great locations for shopping and eating out. The views are great from the second floor with your own balcony to sit and watch the sunset on the red rocks. Lovely big bright rooms.

Room Tip: Ask for a second floor room

Make no mistake about it. The Matterhorn is a motel...no lobby just rooms with outside entrance and a balcony that fronts 89A with red rock views past that. I had envisioned sipping wine on my private quiet balcony watching sunsets/ red rocks, not really practical with Main Street right there.. The room was a tad bit small the bathroom small as well.. We paid $135 nite which for the area was a good price....One small note...out of 4 hotel stays this was the only one with a tip envelope for housekeeping ( we always leave $3 to $5 daily)

From the beginning to end service quality was outstanding! First impression are key with me! Thats what drove me to write this review. When I came through the door I was greeted with a lovely smile. The young lady at the front desk who was so kind and pleasantly energetic checked me in..She defiantly reassured my thoughts of selecting the Matterhorn..The rooms were clean and have amazing views over the cascaded landscape, probably the best in town.. Also the location is impeccable when it comes to the local grub and pub, literally right across the street from everything you need! The Matterhorn is the closest place to stay before leaving town, so as far as convenience to Slide Rock and other hotspots in Oak Creek Canyon it's the best..If you ask me this is the best place to stay in the town Sedona! I will be returning soon!!

I can sum up our stay at the Matterhorn Inn in a few words... convenient, comfortable and clean with scenic views. We parked within steps of our room and then could walk the tourist strip of Sedona to shops, restaurants and tour businesses. The room itself was nice-size and clean, with nice furnishings updated throughout. The patio with chairs made it nice for viewing the red rocks of Sedona while reading the newspaper in the morning sun light. All in all, it was a great place to stay (especially with the senior rate of 20% off).

It's a good roadside Motel. Clean, good beds with a good nice swimming pool in the middle of the centre. Views from top floor are very good.
Not expensive but quality is good.
Enough parking place and on walking distance of shops and restaurants in the middle of the town.

Room Tip: Top floor better views of red mountains..

Dear Bingtravel,
Thank you for your review! We are glad you found our inn to be adequate to your needs. We hope you enjoyed our fresh clean beds for a good night’s sleep. Our pool area is perfect for a relaxing swim during the summer, and our Jacuzzi and outdoor fireplace are wonderful for unwinding during our colder months. Guests love that we are just steps away from shopping and dining in Uptown Sedona, without the need of a car. We hope to see you here again at the Matterhorn Inn!
