This is the second time I am staying here in month. Visiting from Long Beach, California, this place has very clean rooms and great prices. We stayed in a triple with 3 beds since there were many of us. Great view. The staff at the front desk were also exceptional in courtesy and very kind and helpful. Andrea and Miguel... More

I have stayed at Posada El Rey Sol a number of times and it is always perfect, from the friendly and courteous staff at check in to the nicely designed rooms. It is located in the "nicer" end of the main tourist area, walking distance to great shopping and many good restaurants. Reasonable rates, definitely recommended.

I've stayed at this hotel a couple of times and each visit gets worse. We arrived Friday afternoon at 1:30 and were told the room wasn't ready. Check in is at 3 but I figured they'd have a room ready considered it was January and not the high season. We went back at 3 and had to wait until 3:30... More

Dear guest, We thank you for your review, and apologize that your stay was unpleasant. Fortunately for us, although January is indeed the slow season, we haven't been slow at all and the rooms were occupied.

we have been coming here for several years and just love the charm and location. Another huge plus for us is they are dog friendly, so we are able to bring our very well behaved Maltese and it's always nice to stay here. At times, they seem to raise prices during slow season, which doesn't make sense, but surprisingly they... More

We drive down to Ensenada for business/pleasure 2-3 times a year. The first time we stayed at the Posada El Rey we were pleased because while "rustic", it was well priced for the location. The biggest problem we have encountered on most occasions is water pressure in the shower. In fact, if we are staying just one night only, we... More
