We stayed in Las Vegas for 2 nights. Saturday night was packed, people everywhere. We went and saw Cirque De Soleil, Myster'e. It was excellent! On Sunday night, we went and saw the Blue Man Group. The were hilarious!! Did I spell that right? We left on Monday morning and headed to Sedona. It was a long drive, but very scenic. We got to our hotel …
... she then tells me very firmly, "I am not buying anything else, Alison, you must stop me."
the he drive from there on the I17 North was a pleasure, snaking round and up and through mountains, as we left cactus land behind and climbed back into the hills, past the Black Canyon and Montezuma country. Lovely.
Our petrol stop was just off the highway, in Montezuma country, where we once more faced this odd situation of encoding beforehand how much petrol we were going to ...
... is great. It's a quiet park set along a creek in the valley below the red rock formations. We have a private fenced site at the end of our row, with a nice patio and a grassy area. We are a short walk to town, and to amazing hiking trails. We spend time walking, hiking, biking (my front tire tube went flat on our first outing - a craft for Roger), exploring, and doing chin-ups (def'n: the act of pushing one's chin up with one's hand, thereby closing a gaping mouth ...
Sunday was our last day in Flagstaff. It's getting a little too chilly for us here so we left Monday morning for Tucson, where IF the weatherman is correct we have a very pleasant temperature waiting for us for a few days while we will be staying at the Air Force FamCamp at Davis Monthan AFB. The high temperature for Tuesday in Flagstaff is suppose to be 43 degrees...to cold for me.
Sunday we went out for breakfast and then drove along Route 66. Stop at a great ...

Now if anyone else is familiar with a couple of my disasterous experiences with skinny jeans, and borrowed boat shoes (being literally pointed and laughed at in kebab shops) then this was again exactly that. Just had to laugh about how ridiculous the shoes looked with my new jeans, and of course everyone else had a good joke at my ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Matterhorn Inn Sedona
Clean & good views
We stayed at the Matterhorn mainly because it's dog friendly, however, it was also reasonably priced, clean and there was a great view from our room. We would definetly stay again.
Our family rented the Matterhorn's chalet for a little more than the cost of two rooms. It was just up the street from the hotel. It has three bedrooms/2 baths, full kitchen, patio, and a porch with views all around. We also had use of the pool and the hot tub. The location is walking distance to shopping and restaurants. The hotel staff even offered suggestions and coupons for dinner.
Great Value for Sedona
Came into Sedona without a reservation and wound up in the Matterhorn's parking lot. The desk clerk gave us a room at a reasonable rate (for Sedona) and let us check in at 11:00am! The room had a fabulous view of the red rocks of Sedona with the plus of being located right in the shopping district, so we could leave the car there and be near everything. The beds were really nice -- extra throw pillows. Sliding door opened out onto a balcony where you could sit and watch the beautiful scenery. If you want to be out in the desert, this isn't the place for you, but if you want good scenery and access to the town, it can't be beat.
The Matterhorn Lodge was ok. Room was clean, and spacious enough, although the bathroom was a bit cramped. No continental breakfast included, pricey at $130. Room balconies opened onto roof of strip mall so area accessible to all rooms. Hotel is located uptown, right on Highway 89A. Busy during the day but quiet enough at night. Hotel area is a Grand Canyon tour bus stop, several blocks of t-shirt, art and jewellery stores including directly below the motel.
Parking at room is limited, unpaved overflow lot across the street.
Pool was fine.
No major complaints other than value for money.
We loved the matterhorn lodge. The rooms are not luxurious by any means, but they were very clean, had a BEAUTIFUl balcony overlooking bustling downtown Sedona and the beautiful red rocks, and I liked the layout of the spacious vanity and bathroom. You felt secluded, but you only had to walk a minute and you were in downtown Sedona. We left the car parked at the motel, and just walked around Sedona all day. It was wonderful! I would definitely recommend this motel to ANYONE. If you are looking for luxury, it's not the place, but if you are looking for comfortable and convient and a kick-butt view, stay here.
The Matterhorn Lodge is one of our favourite hotels
We stayed at the Matterhorn Lodge in June 2001. The room was lovely and the view from the balcony was superb ! Although the hotel is on the main road it was still quiet. We would love to stay there again. The room rate was very reasonable. Sedona is a gorgeous place.
Exceptional value for Sedona
Spent only one night here and although the rooms are very basic (but spotless), they do have a refridgerator, are amazingly cheap for Sedona and the staff are extremely accomodating and friendly. Ignore the comment about being on the main street in the Frommers review. I didn't hear a sound the whole time I was there, except when sitting on the balcony looking at the stupendous view. Highly recommended.
The Matterhorn was our last stop on a 1-week vacation that included lodging outside Bryce Canyon National Park and on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. This was my favorite. It was large, airy, and on the second floor with a balcony looking onto a great view of the red rock formations on the edge of Sedona. The lodge itself is located on the north end of the main drag, amidst the shops and restaurants of the "old" part of town. The newer section, with it's shopping centers, supermarkets, theater, banks, and more restaurants, is only a 5 minute drive away. A nice feature in the hotel lobby is a thick binder with menues from perhaps 30 of Sedona's finer restaurants. Another thoughtful touch is the windshield-cleaning solution and supplies positioned strategically just outside the hotel office. (Actually, the management hopes you'll refrain from using room towels for wiping all those dead bugs off the glass.)
We stayed 4 nights at the Mattterhorn Lodge in November 2003. Everyone was very helpful. The view was fabulous! Very clean and had everything we needed, extra coffee, etc. Could have used a microwave as we had to leave very early for a tour to Grand Canyon one day, and the restaurants don't open very early. But we got doughnuts across the street and brought them home and put in the refrigerator and we got along fine. We would certainly recommend this facility and we would stay here again.
Great View, Exceptional Price, Very Clean
My husband and I visited Sedona in March of 2002 and discoverd the Matterhorn Lodge. Came into town the week before Easter with no reservations.The Matterhorn Lodge offered us a King room at a Triple AAA price of $107.00, plus tax. Great Mom & Pop establishment. Excellent views from your balcony, King or 2 double beds, full bathroom, refrigerator, large T.V. and coffeemaker. We own a bed & breakfast in Door County, WI so we look for cleanliness. ( Very, very Clean.) We are again returning this year with our son and will be staying at the Matterhorn Lodge. Great value, great location and very clean. Also views were Awesome!
