Good Morning!
At least it's morning here. We leave Santa Fe today and hope to make it to Flagstaff, AZ. We've done a LOT here in a couple days and there's still plenty to do in a place like this. In fact, we plan on making a return visit here on the way back home next week to cover what we …

Bye Santa Fe

A travel blog entry by heritia8


Il est 10h48 et bien temps de quitter l'"El Rey" et Santa Fe! Vous ne m'avez pas beaucoup entendue ces derniers jours! Mais il n'y avait pas non plus grand chose à rapporter... j'ai passé les deux jours précédents en compagnie de mes voisins et de leurs amis français. C'était très sympa de pouvoir, enfin, parler français et surtout retrouver des tê …

    Historical Traveler Reviews El Rey Inn Santa Fe

    The MOST peaceful place in Santa Fe!


    This is the MOST peaceful hotel on earth!! On top of the great southwestern ambiance, the staff is great and the accommodations are all wonderful!

    I have stayed there a number of times in a number of rooms, and they are all furnished very nicely.

    My favorite part is breakfast! The serve you either fresh homemade blueberry muffins or apple cinnamon tortillas!

    They are terrific and come HIGHLY recommended!

    Wonderful! Don't go and steal my reservation


    This is a wonderful motel--and typically, I abhore motels....The staff was friendly, the room was impeccable, and the pool/spa/grounds were very well kept. It is along a heavy traffic stretch, but you can't tell from the pool. spa, or even in the front. We left our cell phone recharger and they promptly send it back to us (COD, but that's okay!) If they only had a free internet computer on site like the mediocre Park Inn & Suites....Kids loved the Baskin Robbins across the street and the tacos at the pick up only El Parasol were great!!! We would definitely recommend this motel, but don't steal our reservation!!! To the other reviewer, perhaps getting your reservation mailed and confirmed would have been a better idea....we sent a check deposit to hold our reservation, we received confirmation within a week, via mail, and there absolutely no problems!

    No Reservation


    we tried to make a reservation at the El Rey Inn. The staff agreed to send me a confirmation via fax. When this fax arrived here not a single letter was legible. So we didn't have a reservation number, a fixed rate, a room number,... nothing. I called the El Rey again asking to send me either a better copy or a short handwritten confirmation. They denied both, explaining to me that they didn't have "better paper". I asked if they could read out their copy so that I could add the reservation number and other essentials to my copy by hand. They denied to do even that, but offered me a "free" cancellation instead.

    No question - I cancelled this "reservation". What hotel can survive with a staff like that? Do they really want to have guests at all?

    The best


    This is one of my favorite places I've ever stayed, and I have traveled a lot. It was roomy, charming, had the most beautiful jacuzzi ever, was inexpensive. We loved it so much we are going there for a couple of nights this summer on the way to the East Coast.

    Loved your Inn


    Your inn is absolutely wonderful, the ambiance, the grounds, the cleanliness, tender loving care to the Inn very evident.

    Best value I've found in NM


    I make about a dozen trips a year to northern New Mexico, and stay at a different place nearly each time. This is the best situation I've found in Santa Fe and northern NM. Very comfortable inn with apparently no two rooms alike. Stayed in room 21--condo like room--for a long ski weekend last month and will return again next month.

    Great Value


    Chose the El Rey after much research and not wanting to spend a fortune.

    This motel has a great feel with beautiful grounds and a nice southwest atmosphere. Our room was large , well furnished and appointed.

    The pool and spas were great and the complimentery breakfast served each morning in the lovely breakfast room made our stay even more special.

    Would recommend the ElRey on value for money if you have a car and don't mind having to drive .

    Double check your reservation


    We have been a loyal customer for 10 years at the El rey, same event, same reservation, and have had a great experience-Untill this year. They made a mistake on our check out day and booked it to someone else. We thought everything was normal untill we arrived later to a locked door and a ranting desk clerk. She blamed us for the mistake and having to accomadate the booked quest. They also accused us of having "done this before" This one really "po'ed" me. After a short pointed

    Truly nice place and staff


    A concerned and considerate staff came up with a tiny but completely comfortable room at a good price on the Fourth of July after a broken tooth kept me in Santa Fe an extra day and a surly chain manager at the place I'd been at couldn't come up with a room for another night or any suggestions.

    I've been in Santa Fe many times, but had never been at El Rey and am delighted to have found it despite the circumstances. It's staff is charming, the courtyards are worth sitting in, and the distance to the plaza is no problem if you're doing day trips out of Santa Fe or would be driving around town anyway. Absolutely the only place outside downtown I would consider staying it.

    A Real Find!


    A most wonderful southwestern inn with the best service that my wife and I have received in a very long time. We only wish we could find an El Rey in other towns that we visit. The value received in unbelievable. The inn is a true Santa Fe treasure.
