We are not picky travelers; as long as a place is clean, functional and well-located we are happy. El Rey is a gem in some respects, but had one major (to me) flaw. Pros: Spotlessly clean Motor Court parking Fridge/Microwave/TV/AC all worked Comfortable bed Walking distance to downtown Cons: Shower drain didn't....drain, that it. No filter over it so obviously...

Checked in and right back out again. Open flame room heater with a chunk of cardboard wedged between it and the wall....smoke detector disabled - bed bug debris in mattress folds. Disgusting and in poor repair. Only one step above homeless. Health and fire officials advised.

We spent several days at the El Rey Motel. After hiking in the Globe area, it was enjoyable to sit outside our room in the evening soaking up the sunshine. Talked with several other guests - it was a really nice change from staying in a chain motel with no interaction with other guests. The room was quite small for...

I stayed here on 4/12/13. I was looking for the cheap place to stay. I paid $57 total. This was a little high for the quality of the place but still the cheapest in town. I found out today the casino has a $70 rate with $20 in play money. Oh well. I liked El Rey. It was quaint. I...

I should have paid more attention to previous reviews. We booked two rooms, one a single and the other with two queen beds. We were overcharged for the room with one queen bed. The other room,#3, was most interesting. The floor was not level going from one side to the other. I guess I would not have been so annoyed...

As one would guess from the photo of the old-fashioned sign (it proclaims the rooms are "refrigerated") this is a classic motel from the golden days of motoring. The friendly proprietor told me it was built in 1938 or so. At the front desk there's an antique gizmo that lets you turn a knob to select a destination, after which...
