This motel was recommended by Shakespeare ticket staff and it was indeed great for our family. Truly a short couple of blocks to all the plays. The breakfast was pleasant, setting pleasant, rooms nice. I would love to give this place a perfect rating, but there were some weak points in their daily housekeeping. I hope they get on top...

Very clean hotel. Large family suite accommodated 5 and two dogs. Staff was friendly and helpful. Beautiful town. Plenty to do and see. Pool was small but well kept. Ate at the adjacent cafe. Good food and portions for the price. Would definitely stay here again.

We have been staying at this property anually for over 25 years. The location for the Shakespeare festival is great. However checking in this afternoon we were astonished at the surly and rude reception we received from the front desk staff. Worst in 25 years. They must have been having a bad day. We are staying for three nights. Curious... More

This hotel is located in an area surrounded with dozens of good restaurants. It's clean...management is friendly...and the room was gorgeous. The bed feels like you are sleeping on a cloud. The pool is clean and very inviting. Couple of tips...getting off I-15..turn right on 200N...go to Main St ( about 3 lights up)and turn right..it's 1 block down on... More

I've stayed at the Best Western El Rey for twenty years, every year I've visited the Utah Shakespeare Festival. They have always been more than accommodating, very friendly and helpful, and many times have gone out of their way to make my stay great.

We stayed at the El Rey on our annual overnight getaway to the Shakespeare Festival. After a pleasant dinner at the always-yummy Pizza Factory, we walked the three blocks to enjoy an amazing play, then walked back to enjoy a wonderfully comfortable pillow-top bed. The rooms have been recently remodeled, and I was impressed with how extremely clean ours was.... More

The El Rey has been our family's choice for our Shakespeare Festival stay for 23 years. We now reserve 4 rooms each year. We not only enjoy the very nice, clean rooms but the friendly service as well. They have a lovely breakfast each morning and a beautiful pool. This year we enjoyed the new exercise room. I believe the... More

I have stayed at this hotel many, many times over the years that I have attended the Utah Shakespearean Festival, and it never disappoints. The rooms are comfortable, the people who work there are pleasant and accommodating, the free breakfast is handy and it's an easy walk to the theater. It is clean, the pool is nice for both kids...

Last minute getaway to Cedar City for the 4th. We stayed at one of the rooms across from the pool. The rooms are clean, beds are comfy and staff is wonderful. Only issue we had was that the front door is in 2 pieces (small gap between door and fill-in panel). We'll stay here again but probably in one of... More

The best thing about this hotel is the staff. Everyone I encountered was friendly and helpful, but Enoch (the Manager) is amazing. I have never encountered such a friendly, gracious, and helpful hotel manager. He gets to know all of his guests from year to year and is a remarkable young man. The location is close to the Shakespeare Festival.... More
