We had stayed here before and expected a clean, nothing fancy, room at a reasonable rate. And that is what we experienced again. We had a king size on the second floor. Good shower, TV size and channels OK. Bed was clean and comfortable. Went to breakfast which was about average for motels these days. Overall an uneventful, average, but... More

It is refreshing to meet such great people who have a zest for life and the unexpected. I am glad we were able to quickly resolve the situation. I know it was an inconvenience and I really appreciate your patience and understanding. I was able to have the issue fixed and do not anticipate have similar issues in the future.... More

The room was clean and fresh. No frills, but none expected, and it was great value for the price. It was easy to find in Cedar City and they accepted the Skoosh paperwork without question. Temperature in the room was adjustable - nice.

Although the exterior of this motel hasn't been updated yet and the lower rooms are clearly in the midst of renos, the lobby, breakfast area and, more importantly, our room's reno's were completed (a very pleasant surprise). The bed was quite comfy, we had a good sleep. Apparently only the updated rooms are being offered to guests. Just a basic... More

I've stayed here on previous occasions. However this time they were renovating 1/2 of the hotel, for the upcoming summer season. Despite the clutter in the parking lot, the noise was never a factor during my 3 night stay here. The staff are all friendly and courteous. They are located in an excellent location where various restaurants, a movie theater,... More

This motel is what you would for the price. When we first arrived no one was at the front desk. The television is small and on a low credenza making it hard to watch from the beds. There was lots of remodeling going on so the outdated decor should be corrected when it's finished. The towels are small. The beds... More

I have personal history with this motel. Ray Knell and his family were our next door neighbors growing up in Cedar. Staying at the El Ray Best Western is like experiencing my past - maybe even coming home for me.

This hotel does not have quality maintenance and is in a run down state. The heating and cooling unit and fire detector were both in disrepair. The staff did not offer any compensation for an unsatisfied stay.

From start to finish the employees and management went out of their way to ensure we had a great experience. The family suite was large and great for our two dogs. Our room had a separate room for my teen girl. Internet was fast and easy to access. A grassy area was close by for out two girls, keep it... More

The hotel in centrally located. Many aspects of the hotel are tired and in need of refurbishment. The new owners have started that process, but I stayed in an older room. The room was good size. While called a "suite," it was actually a large room with a sofa, table, and chairs in addition to a bed. There was also... More
