An Unforgettable Retreat at El Portal: The Perfect Getaway for Both Humans and Furry Friends!

During my recent stay at El Portal in Sedona, AZ, I was delighted by the warm and inviting atmosphere that embraced me from the moment of arrival. Nestled amidst Sedona’s captivating landscapes, the Terrapin Station at El Portal exceeded all expectations as a cozy sanctuary for a truly remarkable getaway. This tucked away bungalow exuded a perfect blend of rustic elegance and harmonious integration with the surrounding natural beauty. It was evident that owners Steve and Connie had poured their hearts and souls into creating a space that radiated warmth and tranquility.

One of the most memorable aspects of our stay at El Portal was the joy our beloved pit bull, Diesel, experienced during his time there. Being a pet-friendly establishment, El Portal treated Diesel as a cherished member of their own family. They showered him with affection and provided thoughtful amenities that made his stay as enjoyable as ours.

What a magical place! Thank you, El Portal, for sharing your remarkable retreat with us and allowing us to create cherished memories in Sedona.


Excellent Experience
We decided on Sedona for my birthday and as we were looking for a place to stay El Portal caught our attention because it looked so cozy and unique! Where do I begin the experience at El Portal was amazing! It’s a small little hotel full of history, it’s owned and ran by a, in my opinion, very special couple – Steve and Connie (goals) love them, so full of life! You will definitely NOT get their kind of hospitality in one of those sterile corporate hotels. El Portal made the experience of Sedona so much more special. Beautiful energy and it’s in a GREAT location! I will definitely be back! Hopefully this summer.
Thank you Steve and Connie

5.0 Excellent

First time staying here and I was in complete awe. Overall the place was amazing from the friendly staff to the complimentary items for the guest. My now-fiancée broke into tears when she saw the Greene & Greene room. It was a magical place that is a definite must-stay. We will be back.

No words can describe how pleasant our stay was…
It was like stepping back 100 years in time- but with all the amenities of modern life tastefully integrated- the beams and timbers reminded us of the Ahwahnee hotel in Yosemite -but much warmer and intimate. From the soaking tubs to the generous treats in the beautiful lobby to the comfortable beds we found ourselves hard pressed to want to leave and visit the rest of Sedona. But when we did tear ourselves away it was literally a 1 minute walk to great restaurants and shops in quaintest Sedona. Will come back as often as we can!!


This beautiful hotel is just a few feet away from Tlaquepaque where I love to shop and see their beautiful artwork. We have stayed in several of their different suites and they’ve all been very nice. Last time we stayed in Suite 5, The Flat Rock Hickory, it was huge and the pet yard is very large as well. Very nice set up in the bathroom with separate shower and really unique tub! Plenty of room for myself, my husband and our four dogs. The common areas are beautiful. I have a courtyard at home but this one is just breathtaking! Parking is easy and free. They don’t serve breakfast anymore but still offer coffee, drinks and snacks. All the restaurants in the area are delicious, within walking distance and several are dog friendly as well. This is our fourth time visiting definitely won’t be our last. The beauty always surprises me both at this boutique hotel and Sedona in general. Give this hotel a try you won’t be sorry! Even the local dog park has stunning views!


Heavenly ~ Top rated restaurants within walking distance ~ Lavish surroundings at the nearby Tlaquepaque Arts and Shopping Village ~ Hiking around Sedona a must and this is the perfect locale for restoration ~ ♥️


Spectacular and wonderful for dogs!
We absolutely loved our stay at El Portal! A truly special place and Steve and Connie are wonderfully welcoming hosts. And it could not have been more dog friendly, with a welcome basket for our pup and everything. The view from our room was spectacular and we loved the added touch of the fireplace on the balcony. We would definitely stay here again!

We have been to Sedona several times in the past but have never stayed at the El Portal. What a pleasant surprise it was to stay here. I can’t imagine staying anywhere else when we visit. It is in a great location but feels so private. The owners are very responsive and sitting in their lobby feels like you are in your own home. I highly recommend a stay at El Portal.


Best hotel in Sedona!
This hotel is hands down the best hotel we have stayed in in a very long time! Small, super personal, rooms have backyards, rooms have literally everything you could think of and so comfortable! The outdoor “lobby”/atrium area has a fire pit, a pond and amazing greenery with chairs around to enjoy it all!
