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!

... at me down the trail. As he passed me, he smiled and said, in quite an animated fashion: "No Birds! No Birds!" (I am not sure if he was forewarning me that there were no birds or that he had expected birds and had found none. Perhaps I looked like the type, with my hat pulled over my eyes, who needed to see birds.)
They did have a list of possible animals to look out for at the visitor's center. These included tarantula, rattlesnake and mountain ...

... have some nice explanatory signage along the trek, with my mom stopping to read each one. She didn't want to miss anything. If only those skills would translate to map reading. Several times I've asked her to navigate, "what's the next stop I should be looking for?" As she struggles with the pronunciation of a Navajo word at the top of the park map, I point out that we are still 20 miles south of that ...
... and somewhat clean. At $30 you get what you pay for. Still better then Darwin base Accommodation. I unload and relax for a little bit. After sitting for hours on the drive, I needed to hit the gym. I got ready and did a drive through the main streets of town first, the went to the gym south of town. It was the biggest Anytime Fitness I'd been to yet, and the busiest. Some guys were just hanging in there and doing nothing but talking to their buddies. ...
