El Rey Court

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The pool and hot tub facility was very relaxing. The room was very clean with a functioning bathroom and comfortable bed. Had a wonderful nights sleep.

The room and facilities were great. The pool was not functioning but looks like it will be nice when repairs are complete. Will definitely stay again.

We were here on her honeymoon and liked the rooms and the outside areas but got locked out of our room twice because of issues with their key cards And more significantly we had a fire alarm/smoke detector go off in our room for two hours. We called the front desk and told him about this and the fact it was waking us up on a Sunday morning at 7 AM and we got no one to the room until two hours later. That’s ridiculous. I pushed the button on the phone that’s labeled front desk and it dials room 11, another guest room. That kind of sums up the lax nature of a hotel that has lovely rooms and a charming atmosphere. Finally I would add that our deluxe room was pictured online as having a beautiful terra-cotta tile floor but actually had a really dingy beige institutional wall-to-wall carpet that undermined the charm of an otherwise very charming and comfortable room. So I feel conflicted about the experience. The staff is extremely pleasant and nice on an interpersonal level but didn’t really do anything to remediate the situation

Overall, we like this hotel. The location is good, being on a main road, yet is landscaped beautifully to provide seclusion from traffic. The buildings are well-designed, and are superior to most of the motel offerings we see now. Services are lacking, however. The weekend cleaning staff were negligent about replacing drinking glasses and coffee cups after removing dirty ones. Other cleaning was good, with the beds being made every day, etc. This hotel is under new ownership within the past year. We stayed here one year ago, and at that time, discount coupons were provided for a next door café for breakfast. Now, the new management has discontinued the coupons, and has replaced it with a continental breakfast consisting of rolls, scones and muffins, as well as orange juice and coffee. The coffee urns in particular were not monitored by the staff, and frequently ran empty. It was necessary to remind the desk clerk that the urns needed refilling (the desk clerk did this herself). In all, it is one of the worst breakfast offerings I have seen, and certainly is a poor substitute for the breakfast coupons previously given.

The owners of this hotel has blocked Fox News channel. It is on the channel line up but channel is black... After inquiring about this with the front desk, Informed the owners have blocked that channel. Very disappointing. Thought we had free speech in America!! I will not stay here again.

I stay here when I travel to SF for buisness. I would say I have spent 15 nights here altogether. The staff great and the environment is rustic, clean, quiet, and fun.

The room was very clean and surprisingly big. We had a fireplace and a nice big bed. The staff was super nice and recommended a restaurant in town which unfortunately was closed on Sunday. The pool was amazing. It was about 7 feet deep with plenty of lounge chairs. I would definitely come back again!

Small comfortable room and I could not hear anything from the adjoining rooms. Loved the atmosphere.

We brought friends from FL to visit Santa Fe. We took them to the Loretta Chapel and other churches and also shopping in the market and some of the stores.

This is the 3rd time we have stayed at the El Rey. It truly is the garden spot of Santa Fe. Not only are the grounds absolutely beautiful (flowers, trees, fountains and sculptures everywhere) the building are lovely (white adobe), the staff are very friendly and helpful, and the rooms are great. Also just about the best swimming pool, clean and large and deep and perfect temperature. Sauna and hot tubs
