I stayed at his hotel on my first trip to Ensenada. The Hotel has a quaint feel to it. It is comfortable and in a great spot. The staff is super friendly and very helpful. The price was also good and they were able to recommend some good spots for food and sight seeing. The only reason why I did... More

I have been visiting Ensenada for almost 50 years now and have stayed at many hotels and rented many vacation properties, but this was my first time staying at the Posada El Rey Sol. The staff is great. We reserved three rooms during Carnival Ensenada. Needless to say the hotel was quite busy, but the highly professional front desk staff... More

The location and private parking are the first good things about this place, unusual in Ensenada. Our room was large with good TV, in-room coffee, good bed and bathroom. The shower was pretty but hot water a bit iffy. All in all I would stay here again for the location and security, a good value.

My wife and I have stayed at Posada El Rey twice now on weekend trips and have had mixed feeling about the place. The positives of the motel are the staff which have been very friendly and courteous whenever we've had any interaction with them. The location is incredibly convenient to the downtown area as well as the marina which... More

I booked this hotel mainly based in TripAdvisor reviews. It has not been a great experience. The check-in took ages, the only clerk at peak hour was busy taking calls, closing an endless transaction to rent a conference room and taking care of us. The room was basic, or less...one of the lights was not working, only one night stand... More

I've stayed here many times over the past few years and I've always been pleased with the cleanliness, service and price of the single bed rooms. So why am I disappointed? I'm uncertain the amount that we have spent over the years at the hotel, but let's say we eat and drink well at their restaurant and almost never stay... More

This is our second trip to Posada El Rey Sol and it's still a welcoming place. The owner Jean-Loup, and staff are friendly and conscientious. Though the room rates have gone up, it is a great place to stay. The restaurant is fine dining with a friendly staff and Arturo's romantic guitar music with dinner if you like. The location... More
