Unfortunately, we only had one evening to spend in Sedona, and I picked the Matterhorn after reading about the reviews here. We were so glad that we were able to get a room there on such short notice--and paid around $122 total.
The room we stayed in was lovely! Don't expect the Four Seasons, because the hotel is not fancy, nor are the rooms huge. But our room was large enough to accomodate a king bed and night stands, lounge chair, bistro-type table with two chairs and tv cabinet. The room was spotless, as well as the bathroom. There was a small sink area located outside of the bathroom. A mirrored closet contained a small frig. I heard no one in any of the surrounding rooms, even though the hotel was completely filled. The town really quiets down at night, so you could actually leave the sliding doors open if you needed to. We didn't use the pool area, so I can't comment on that.
But the most amazing thing was the view off the balcony! We sat back and enjoyed the view and a bottle of wine while watching the sun set. I would return again and again to this hotel, just for the view.
Another thing about the location is that you are within walking distance of the tourist shops. There is a free trolley available; however, we didn't use it. But it was a great location for me as I had to entertain myself for the afternoon while my husband was working. Amongst the t-shirt shops are galleries filled with beautiful sculptures and jewelry made by local artists. Something for everyone. And if you prefer the higher-end stores, just visit Tlaquepaque.
The people working at the front desk were very friendly. A nice touch was a hand-made book in the office that was filled with pictures and menus of local restaurants--something that shows me that the people running this hotel are genuinely interested in making sure their customers enjoy their visit in Sedona. And I will stay here again the next time we are in this beautiful little town.
