Recent guest reviews

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
