Reviewed 27 November 2013

Some travelers want full service luxury, and others want a nice place to stay on a budget. If the latter is you, then the Matterhorn Inn is a great choice. We stayed at the Matterhorn for one night on a recent trip through Sedona. We chose it because of the reasonable price point (in Sedona terms), the uptown location, the free parking and wifi, and the reviews on Trip Advisor. We were quite satisfied. The motel is an older one, but the rooms are very clean and very nicely decorated. The views of the red rocks are as spectacular as advertised – we arrived in the dark and had a “Wow!” moment when we opened the blinds in the morning. The bathroom was small and the tub appeared to be a vintage original, but at least everything worked well. The king bed was definitely very comfortable, and the free wifi offered a good connection speed. There was also a small fridge and in room coffee maker. The reception was friendly, with excellent recommendations offered for dinner (The Cowboy Club) and breakfast (The Wildflower Bread Company). We would probably stay here again, although admittedly, our tour of Sedona drew our attention to several very tempting full service resorts. Still, if price point is a key factor in your decision-making, the Matterhorn is a very good choice. I doubt that you would find a better motel at this price point.

We were very unimpressed with our stay. When we had originally reserved our room, we had reserved one that was animal friendly and a king sized bed. We were told check in time was at 3:00. Upon arrival to the hotel, we were told they had overbooked the room and the only room available for us was one with two double sized beds. They also said the room wasn't ready and we couldn't check in till 3:40. When we asked if they could give us a better deal for not giving us what we originally reserved, they told us no and that all we could do is cancel our current reservation. Needless to say, we will not be staying here again.

Dear Guest; I can understand your frustration and disappointment in your stay with us. Likewise, we are disappointed in our service for you and your guest. As you might remember, our manager called your cell phone at 8:00 a.m. on the morning of your intended arrival to relate the unexpected room overbooking; that is, the guest from the prior night in the king pet room wanted to stayed over unexpectedly. At this early time, the manager gave you the option to cancel due to the bed size; thus, upon your arrival we wrongly assumed that the bed situation was adequate for you, your guest, and your pet. Also, as usual, we took the time to carefully clean and inspect the pet room; hence, you experienced a delay at check-in. We made a mistake, and we apologize for any inconvenience the bed size and delayed check-in might have caused. We do hope that your time in Sedona was otherwise enjoyable.

Just got back from a 4 night stay here. Everything others have said, very pleasant. Very clean, great local. Sat's very busy on strip but clears out at night. Quiet relaxing. So much to do, so close to everything. Very nice stay, enjoyed very much

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony for the great views, worth the bit extra

The Matterhorn Inn can save you my friend, in this land of $300 plus a night rooms. Their location is in the heart of a retail area with restaurants and shops for convenient walk to everything if you like. Your car is next to you, and always ample parking when we were there. Every room has a million dollar view through wide sliding glass doors onto your private balcony. That same room is very large, clean, furniture is in great shape, and well-appointed with flat screen TV, reading lamps, upholstered/cushy chair, desk, refrigerator etc.

But, I was floored by the details, these guys have it down, and could teach Hilton and the W a thing or two. In fact I will mention them both. One, we all know that an average room is two people, some rooms even have multiple beds, but still even knowing this every hotel in America only has one luggage rack to fight over - well the Matterhorn has two, rocket scientist by comparison I tell you. Two, you know how every hotel in America likes to say they are worried about the environment so please don’t ask us to give you clean towels in the morning, but then put a 4 inch thick comforter on every bed forcing you to turn the air conditioning down to 60 degrees - well once again our guys placed a thin blanket and sheet on the bed, then another thin blanket and sheet on top of that, and let you decide on level of comfort. Don’t even get me started on windshield washing kit available at the lobby….

We were tired and had no reservations so we turned into the 1st place we saw. This is a lovely, family owned Inn. Every room had a great view. The staff was very helpful. Everything was in walking distance. It is possible that places on the east side of the road have a better view but we loved the Matterhorn Inn.

Room Tip: Every room overlooks the main drag and has a beautiful view.

Dear Buck S,

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We are pleased that you were comfortable and that you enjoyed your stay with us. We certainly do have excellent views! The Matterhorn Inn has been in Sedona for many years, so long that the shops that are across the street now did not exist! We had the complete canyon view in the early years until more development inhabited the east side of the street. We hope you will return in the future to enjoy our accommodations once more.

All the best

This hotel is very cute and unique. The toilet/shower area is very small but clean. The living area is spacious with beautiful views from the large sliding glass door. We stayed at the end of Oct, it was chilly but the heater was too noisy to leave on. The comforter was very warm so we were comfortable all night. Bed & pillows were comfy. We were on the first floor and there was noise from the people upstairs. The location is great - just walk out the door and you can walk to restaurants and stores. It's pet friendly and the room rates are great. We would stay here again.

Room Tip: Stay on the top floor
