Having stayed at the El Rey many times before, it was its consistently good product. The ground were not as beautiful as in the summer, but winter has a way of changing that. We stayed in room 61 and the rooms are well appointed, clean and very comfortable. Excellent shower with great fluffy towels. The instant on fireplace in the...

What reason what I have to stay any other place? This was a gift at the end of a 3-day journey through New Mexico. Accommodation, comfort, aesthetic, family-owned, quaint, caring staff, affordable. Thank you for your prior thoughtfulness in anticipation of the needs of the traveler. Terrific breakfast from which to send one. My compliments. Beautiful.

We have stayed here many times and are never disappointed. I love the quiet, the nice breakfast and southwestern atmosphere. Trip into town is easy, but we avoid the tourist areas anyway. The old fashioned motor court feel is very welcoming.

Last year we were lucky enough to stay at the El Rey Inn. Previously we always stayed downtown at an expensive hotel near the Plaza. We were always disappointed with the hotel so in March 2012, we decided to give the El Rey Inn a shot. And we were not disappointed. We stay in one of the rooms with a...

The El Ray is a sanctuary in the middle of Santa Fe. We stayed in a "Deluxe" room that had a gas fireplace that was very cozy. The Inn has classic but new Santa Fe style. The staff was great and the place has a lot of history. We will keep coming back to the El Ray each time we...

We really enjoyed our Stay at El Rey- very friendly staff and no problems when our plans changed and had to check out early. Clean, comfortble and continental breakfast in the morning. Small dining room, so get in earlier rather than later.

After a very last minute trip due to the Denver airport closing and mechanical issues with plane, we ended up driving to Santa Fe to go skiing over spring break. I booked a hotel at the Santa Fe Hotel the night before, when we arrived there, the "suite" I booked to accommodate 3 teenagers and a tired mom, had no...

We stayed here for two nights in winter. For under $100 a night you won't find a better place to stay. They were redecorating their breakfast area so we got a voucher to the restaurant next door for breakfast, which was a great little restaurant. The rooms are a good size and bed is comfortable. We stayed here as part...

My husband and I stayed at the El Rey for three nights in February, and we were very pleased with our choice. We usually stay somewhere close to the Plaza, but the deal we found at the El Rey was too good to pass up. The room was a little old, but it was clean, cozy, and quiet. We were...
