My wife and I have stayed at Posada El Rey twice now on weekend trips and have had mixed feeling about the place. The positives of the motel are the staff which have been very friendly and courteous whenever we've had any interaction with them. The location is incredibly convenient to the downtown area as well as the marina which allows for easy shopping and dining. They also give you a daily breakfast voucher for the French restaurant across the street. You can have a free breakfast(limited menu) or a discount off of menu items. The beds are slightly old but surprisingly comfortable.
Now for the bad. On our first stay the floor of the room was dirty to the point that we both wore flip-flops when walking around. We stay at a wide range of places(high end to lower end) and have rarely had this experience. We had the exact same room on the second stay and the floor was clean on that trip. There is also an odd feeling of insecurity with the back door configuration. The closet is a walk-thru area which leads to a small back patio. The door is secured with a small sliding hasp which can be easily breached. There are security bars on the patio but it still seems a bit insecure.
We have another Baja trip planned for June and will likely stay at Posada again. The good definitely trumps the bad and for the convenience it's worth staying here.
