“Uniquely beautiful inn”

Reviewed August 25, 2011

This was our first time staying here (in the Rim View room) and it was truly wonderful. The inn is thoughtfully constructed and designed, and decorated with beautiful unique arts and crafts pieces that Steve and Connie have picked up at antique shops. There were four of us in the room and it still felt spacious and the beds were very comfortable. We also enjoyed the all natural toiletries. Sedona is an outstandingly beautiful place to visit and after a long day of activities El Portal was such a lovely and relaxing place to return home to. I loved sitting by the fire at night–there was one both outdoors and in– and the food- both the breakfasts as well as the snack food– was delicious. Steve and Connie are very gracious and interesting to talk to.

Room Tip: Ask Steve about the best room for your needs and preferences.

This beautiful, secluded, and relaxing respite was absolutely perfect for a weekend get-away from the Valley during the hottest weekend of August. The owner of El Portal, Steve, was welcoming and full of information as he guided hubby, myself, and our Aussie straight to our room. Yep, it’s a dog-friendly or I should say dog-welcoming place. Perfect! Cool flagstone flooring with enormous exposed woodbeams acorss the ceiling; masterfully tiled bathroom with a walk in shower and tiny jacuzzi tub and copper sinks. Super cozy, and it even had a patio. The happy hour refreshments were delicious – skip the quesadilla and focus on the olive mix and homemade salsa – wow! This intimate lodging is within walking distance of both Tlaquepaque and its beautiful shops and the touristy shops of downtown Sedona. The scenery is second to none and I couldn’t be more relaxed! Thanks El Portal!
