We've stayed at this hotel for over 20 years because of it's location to the Utah Shakespeare Festival. We will not be staying at this facility in the future. The hotel is in bad repair and in desperate need of updating. Our room smelled of dirty feet and our friend's room smelled of urine. The room was never clean from... More

The exterior was being renovated so it looked awful. But the interior of the room was clean. The bed was firm yet comfortable. Both the room and the bathroom were newly decorated. Best of all, the internet worked 90% of the time. The cost was half of what we expected so I will definitely return when I am in the... More

We attended the Shakespeare Festival, so we booked the closest hotel we could find to the theaters. Walking back to our hotel room after an evening of Shakespeare was simply delightful. Walking back the next morning to seminars and more theatrical productions was equally enjoyable. We had a great weekend getaway and will definitely do this again.

We have stopped here on three separate occasions on our way to Colorado. The motel is clean, pleasant, friendly. Accommodating. Reasonably priced. There is a pool. There is a Chinese buffet within walking distance where we have eaten all three times. It is reasonably priced, and tasty. The restaurant offers a senior discount. We have grown fond of the little...

I had a very enjoyable time here at the Best Western in Cedar City. The front office staff was outstanding and courteous. The room and bed was extremely comfortable. I went to the Improv club that was in a short walking distance and there is quite abit to do in walking distance.

We were so happy with this find for a hotel. The room, although on second floor and we had asked for first when making reservation was adequate. When you can find peace and quiet and cleaniness, without overpowering deodorizers you can get a good nights sleep. Recommendation for restaurant by hotel staff was a plus, she knew all details about... More

We had a very good experience at Best Western El Rey. We encountered a couple of issues with our room which were immediately addressed and solved. The people were courteous, the room was clean. We would stay there again.

If you are going to the Utah Shakespeare and are looking for a great place to stay within walking distance of the Festival and Downtown Cedar City: El Rey is the place! The room re clean, the star is friendly and the restaurant next door was selected the best diner in Utah.

It's true, El Rey does mean "The King" in Spanish. It is also true that the Brick House Cafe won a "Best of State" award for best local diner. We think the food is amazing. We appreciate your comments and staying with us while in Cedar City. We look forward to your next visit to town. More

This hotel is so clean and the staff made our stay very comfortable and smooth. They even came around at breakfast with juice and cleared away our dishes while we were sitting talking and drinking our coffee.
