“3 queen beds...”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Altogether very pleasant stay. Good area of town, just a short walk up the street to the Shakespeare Fest. Other rooms not noisy, even with little kids around. Very nice to have a small table and garden chairs outside each room! Cute and simple little outside pool, refreshing after travel. Beds were new and generally not too soft/not too hard, even though we prefer harder. (Looked up mattresses for online reviews and prices, since we liked them much more than we had expected and they are manufactured in the town we live in: They were pretty new according to the mattress label – 02/2014 – but, according to tons of reviews, the specific mattresses are fairly expensive, supposed to be great for about 8 mos, then sag in the center in a major way, resulting in pain, etc. – maybe the hotel should monitor this carefully.) This was a 3 queen room. 2 queens were in the back with a half room divider and 1 queen in the front with a table. Two TVs. Chairs were supportive and not too soft, however they had quite visible brown stains on brown chairs, hmmm. Also since there were 3 dispensers in the shower for shampoo, conditioner and body gel, it was a bit awkward that there was no hand soap at all, but just a little card at the sink telling us to call the desk if we had forgotten to bring anything... Hand soap is a hotel basic more than body gel, eh? However, we would still recommend; it suited our needs very nicely!

I am pleased that you enjoyed your time with us during the Shakespeare Festival. We receive good comments frequently on our mattresses. Thank you for checking the reviews, we will keep an eye on them. The dispensers are part of our efforts to reduce waste. I apologize that the hand soap was overlooked in your room. The staff at the desk is happy to run things like that to the room if needed. Thank you for choosing to stay with us. We hope to see you next year.

A good place to stay in Cedar City, Utah. Staff is friendly and easy to deal with on a daily basis. It is conveniently located to several good restaurants and just a short walk to the Shakespeare Festival. The rooms are clean and big enough to move in and the beds are very comfortable. This is the place we chose to stay when we make our annual trip to the Shakespeare Festival.

Still an OK place to stay. They are still doing a remodel and the parking lot is way too small for the amount of rooms. Ended up parking across street in their over flow parking area and having to haul my stuff in. They still offer the voucher to the Brick Café for Breakfast that is excellent for $6.35 saves about 4 bucks. And the food is great. When we were there we had some heavy rain and the parking lot ended up with a 2 foot lake in the middle on account of a plugged drain it went down after a couple of hours. The room I had this time was OK still a 2nd floor with queen size beds (2) could not get a king or a first floor for any of the 5 nights there. Cedar City is a very busy place all year long and people book their rooms 2 years in advance specifying the room they want. So have reservations if you are planning to stay.
My self I would stay again if I could not get into the Best Western Town and Country a block away. I think their rooms are nicer and they have an indoor pool and spa.

Room Tip: Make your reservations way in advance, most rooms are booked 2 years ahead in the summer time due to...

I am sorry we could not accommodate you on the first floor during your stay. I also apologize for the water building up in the parking lot. After further investigation we found the issue and will be taking action to remedy it. We do value your comments. We also hope you will come back and experience the improvements we are continuing to make.

If you plan to visit the Utah Shakespeare Festival during your summer vacation, you must stay at the Best Western ElRay! It has a fabulous pool, wonderful breakfast, and it is less than 3 blocks to the theatres! We found that we were within walking distance to several restaurants and the hotel staff could not have been more accommodating! Book now, it's the best place to stay when shaking the spear in Cedar City!

I've stayed here before and always enjoyed it. Had a dark, quiet room. Not noisy even though near pool and ice machine. Free Wi-Fi, but slow. Problem might have been my Kindle. TV: high quality picture, good selection of channels. Very nice people and the restaurant next door was delicious for breakfast and lunch.

We have been going to the Shakespeare Festival with our extended family for 30 years. We have stayed in most of the places in Cedar City, but we always come back to the El Rey. It is the most convenient hotel for the festival, and it is in the heart of the charming historic downtown. Lots of places to eat in walking distance as well as nearby shopping. Prices are reasonable and the staff is great. They are doing a lovely remodel and will be even better in the future.
