El Rey was built in 1936, thoughtful owners over the years have maintained and upgraded this property. It now contains mature plantings, shady walks, sculptures and myriad flowers. We stayed in one of the original rooms nicely furnished with Santa Fe style furniture. My only disappointment - pillows way too soft, and bedside light fixture that did not work and was not fixed after asking at the office. (we stayed 3 nights). Light fixtures all had real bulbs so reading was possible!

I did not love Santa Fe as much as I thought I would (too touristy after Taos and Chimayo areas), so the El Rey was a real oasis with its friendly staff, great pool, and many amenities. It was close to the Shake Foundation too, which was a perfect lunch spot. The El Rey's breakfasts were good and varied. Our room was wonderful. It was located on the upper floor of the Spanish Colonial Courtyard. We had a corner room (number 69, I think), which was equipped with a little kitchenette (with small stove, fridge, microwave, dishes, and cookware). Just outside the room was a sitting area. We enjoyed sitting out there with a glass of wine or cup of tea after a long day in town. We did not find going into the city too much of a hassle although finding parking was sometimes a pain. Finally, the staff at the front desk was extremely helpful and friendly always. We enjoyed our stay here very much, and found it a great place to stay with kids.

Room Tip: I recommend the upper floor of the Spanish Colonial courtyard section of the hotel. it was peaceful...

We were heading back to Texas and needed a place to stay in Santa Fe over the 4th of July. Tried to book the El Rey over the internet but it showed full. Pulled in and were pleasantly surprised to find they did have a room--they explained they don't put all their rooms up on the net and hold back the best rooms for return walk-in travelers like us. Room by the pool with a courtyard, flowers blooming--it was as restful and comfortable as we have come to expect.

Room Tip: Toward the back off Cerrillos quieter.

Older Inn but well kept. Staff was friendly and the grounds are so beautiful. A little far from the Square area. The breakfast was nice and great to sit outside an enjoy the scenery. The flowers are gorgeous all around.

We keep returning to El Rey Inn, year after year, because it delivers consistently and a bit more. This time, at the end of June, the gardens were in bloom, providing welcome shade from the hot sun. We discovered two wonderful Mexican restaurants within walking distance! Our room located off the courtyard was quiet (no noise from Cerrillos Rd.).

Well-maintained vintage property. Entered room via our own patio with wrought iron table and chairs and framed by vines, trees and flowers. Large, clean room had tall windows with white plantation shutters. Terracotta tile floor, comfortable king-size bed, cozy sitting area with cute corner fireplace, skylight in bathroom for plenty of natural light. After unpacking, my husband and I strolled around the beautiful grounds. It was like fairytale land at dusk with charming paths, twinkle lights, flowers, vines, trees, fountains, etc. Complimentary breakfast was good and dining area was delightful. We carried our breakfast back to our patio and enjoyed the breeze. Staff was pleasant and professional. We look forward to visiting again.
