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.
Favorite hotel of our vacation!
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.)
I'm badgering my wife for a return trip to Sedona. Should I have my way - perhaps too optimistic a hope, the Matterhorn will be our place to stay. I'll even ask for the same room - the one immediately above the hotel office.
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!

PS Sedona is supposedly a place that is blessed by very powerful energy vortexes - places where the spiritual energy of the earth can be felt and sensed by those who are open to it. Vortex maps available online tell you where to find these vortexes. We visited a few and were disappointed not to feel anything special. Oh well, I guess we must be spiritually underdeveloped.
... to the park as food for the animals.
For those of you with weak stomachs, STOP READING NOW:
They fed the head to a male lion and it was incredible to see and hear the puncture of the skull by the lions canine teeth!!! Even though it was dead, the lion reverted its natural instinct to crush the skull of its prey to guarantee dinner. The pop was as loud as a firecracker and very disturbing. All the kids loved it of course ...
... her now or later??
By now, I felt ready to handle breakfast, so we ambled up to a Mexican place and sat on the pavement to have coffee and I had a quesadilla, which was mega yum, before we drove on out of the town, just to see, turning round at the far end and stopping at the Sedona Art Centre where they had a gallery with some fabulous things in it, a watercolour exhibition of Sedona artists, a watercolour workshop and next door, a Yard Sale!
To try to describe what we saw today is futile. The pics do not do justice either. I have never experienced feelings like today, just taking in the utter beauty and brilliance of this area of our United States of America. I will only add that there were times along ...
... to check out more ruins, and pictographs. We continued on through towards Palatki on old dirt roads through the desert. Seeing the ruins are a big deal with her....with her interest in anthropology. It's not as big a deal with me...but I like the rides through the desert, seeing places and things so different from where we live. These remote dirt roads take you to vistas not seen from the interstate......and that's ...
