El Portal is a rarity! This is our third trip to this unique and cozy inn. We split our time between Room 11 (3 nights) and Room 12 (4 nights). Room 11 feels like you’ve stepped back in time to an arts and crafts period of yesteryear, with a comfortable couch and rocking chair, double sinks, lovely bathroom and a balcony that overlooks the courtyard. Room 12 is the largest suite and is absolutely a dream! Besides being very spacious, it has beautifully crafted antique furniture, a nice bathroom and fireplace. The beds are custom made and are the most comfortable firm beds. You will wake up refreshed. And all the linens and towels are top drawer. The great room is a pleasant place to hang out. Besides friendly people to chat with, you will find tasty breakfasts. We especially liked the lemon pancakes and huevos rancheros. Steve and Connie, the innkeepers, are refreshingly genuine and honest people. They are first rate in helping you to enjoy your stay and are quite a pleasant eclectic pair. The staff is also most helpful. Martin, the houseman, is engaging and provides superior service. Terri, concierge services, is warm and knowledgeable. The housekeeping crew – Moré, Sylvia and Esperanza – are all helpful in getting you whatever you need. If you like dogs, you will find friendly ones here. In the evenings you will be welcomed back by a great smelling fire in the courtyard. El Portal is not your run-of-the-mill lodging. It is uniquely and masterfully crafted, quiet and homey, with a great sense of peace and spirit abounding.
