El Rey is a gem! The unique character and exquisite design make it a must stay! The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. I will plan another trip to Santa Fe just to stay here again!

Great spot. Friendly service. We're going back!

The absolutely charming motor motel was exactly as advertised and more.

Best motel in Santa Fe. You will not be disappointed.

This is a quaint 1938 property which looked like the buildings were freshly painted, as was the room. Due to COVID-19, housekeeping was not available. I stayed 2 nights and the toilet became stopped up the last morning. I called the front desk to report it, and to tell them I was leaving, so they could take their time. I accidentally left a king size flat floral sheet & was quickly able to make arrangements for its return.

Nice property. The room could have been checked out before being used. The air conditioner did not cool, the tv did not work, and the electronic key sporadically worked. I reported this before I checked out so in all fairness, they didn't have time to repair. However, when I did reported, there was no apology for the condition of the room.

Liked the welcome, the speed of check-in, the location.

Beautifully decorated and nicely maintained. I had to move rooms in the middle of the night due to the smell of gas in my room, however.

Such a beautiful and historic property with so many charming touches. Lovely staff, quiet at night, fun amenities, and all around comfort. Will be my go-to hang and stay in Santa Fe!

We loved the grounds, so much on the property to experience. Modern and stylish mixed with a kitsch feel of bygone eras.

This place is pure magic ! Great vibe , great staff , and priced appropriately .

Loved that each room is unique and decorated with tasteful furniture. Not fond of the grumpy clerk who checked us in.

Always enjoy the grounds and beautiful landscaping and flowers. They charged considerably more for the holiday weekend and no breakfast. Traded breakfast in for cocktails which you have to pay for. Bed and linens were comfy. Windows wouldn’t open and it was gorgeous weather for gentle breezes

A little run down. Never addressed burnt out light bulbs.

The pictures you show of rooms are not accurate. You need to update them.
