The staff at the El Rey Inn are the best! Doris the night clerk is so helpful and friendly she goes out of her way to make you feel at home and comfortable. I can't say enough about this lovely vintage motel. This motel is a great value!

New Mexico is one of the most beautiful states in the country and is truly 'The Land of Enchantment.' This vintage hotel is close to the Plaza of Santa Fe and is easy to find.

Santa Fe is an expensive place to stay but it can be made more affordable by staying on the outskirts of downtown, and this place is a definite for your list. The pool and hot tub area are super because the pool is actually larger than the postage stamp you get at most places. The young man at the front...

On a road trip with a friend that remembered this wonderful hidden spot in Santa Fe. Beautiful grounds and the rooms with the balconies were great. A great value and very convenient to everything. Wonderful swimming pool and the landscaping is beautiful and very well kept. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here for 9 nights and did day trips using this hotel as our base. Santa Fe is a pricey city to visit, and we didn't want to break the bank. Our rate was $125 a night. The hotel is quiet, the grounds have lovely fountains and plantings, and the breakfast is pretty good. I found everything to be...

We can't wait to stay here again!

I just wrapped up my fourth stay at the el Rey. The staff is friendly and very attentive to guests' needs. The manager, Silvia, is quick to resolve issues. For example, we had a problem with the thermostat in our room and her team worked quickly to get it fixed. Silvia discounted our room fee because of the inconvenience. The...
