I booked this hotel since Cedar City was a good place to stop during my road trip. The hotel looks great, a nice lobby with a big fire place (it was November) and a very friendly and welcoming lady at the reception. The place looks very nice, modern and stylish. The rooms are big and very comfortable, and breakfast was... More

Stayed one night passing through Cedar City. Was drawn to the property by high rating relative to the cost. As I was travelling solo, there was no need for higher end accommodations. Property has had a recent partial remodel. Beds were excellent, ground floor was generally the only option with a few second story walk up areas (rooms). Room was... More

We stayed here for a couple nights while exploring the local area. The motel is clean and the staff is helpful and very friendly. It has recently been remodeled so it is quite nice. We did have a problem getting our room cool enough to sleep well. The staff struggled with the problem, but eventually it got worked out.

We stayed one night at the El Ray traveling between Zion and Bryce Canyon. The staff was gracious and accommodating. We had a single queen on the side street to the El Ray and it was perfect for us.

Stayed here as a centre for Zion and Bryce Canyon, perfect location, good breakfasts. Lovely room which served all our needs. The hotel staff were very friendly, especially the hands-on manager, Mr Seegmiller, who went out of his way to be helpful. Would definitely stay here again and am very happy to recommend it to others.

The El Rey was a pleasant surprise. It was apparent that the ownership and staff took pride in the operation. Traveling with a pet and needing a place to "crash" after a long day of travel, at a reasonable price, is many times a gamble. In the case of the El Rey we won. The staff was attentive and warm....

Comfortable room, decent breakfast and walking distance to the excellent Cedar City Shakespeare Festival. Half an hour drive to a great hike at Zion National Park. Friendly staff who even brought homegrown peaches to the breakfast. Swimming pool area needs a little attention.

When I come back to Cedar City, I'll look for a different hotel. It's a downtown, old hotel with low ceilings and small rooms. The staff I met were friendly. The landscaping is nice. Convenient parking.
