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

Our family of six stayed in a suite here for two nights . We booked the reservation based on the need for a suite to accommodate size of our group. I was apprehensive because we don't usually stay in a motel ; we usually stay in full service hotel. Our suite was one room with a queen bed and adjoining... More

I stayed at El Rey in June for two nights and had a great experience. I chose it because of price and also reviews that I read. The room was clean and the check-in process was easy. I will definitely stay here again.

We've been coming here for at least 15 years. It's the closest to the plays, so we can walk and not hassle with parking. No longer a Best Western, it didn't wow me this year. I had very late room service two out of three days. Housekeeping staff said almost everyone had quit, so their workloads were high. Rooms comfortable,... More

The customer service was fantastic. We stayed at Stratford Court but ate breakfast at El Rey. Enoch was so helpful, had so many suggestions of things to see and do, and couldn't be nicer! Definitely made our trip with all the great suggestions.

Service was awesome. Rooms were very nice and updated. Very clean! The lobby was clean and attractive. Bathroom was accommodating. The king bed was so comfortable. Firm but fluffy. We would definitely stay there again

El Ray Inn deserves all the great reviews it has received. Mitzi, at the front desk was welcoming and informative. Our room was very spacious and clean. We had traveled all day and the comfortable bed was what we needed. The location was perfect for a drive into Cedar Breaks National Monument as well as close to Bryce and Zion.... More

Stayed here with a bunch of friends that came to the area from around the country. I stayed in a room that was on the 'outside' of the hotel, there are rooms that face the courtyard and rooms that do not. The road noise from the nearby road was bad, and I could hear the next room's TV. The room... More

We enjoyed our three nights here. It is a motel with the rooms opening directly to the outside. The rooms are large and clean, and there are shampoo, conditioner, and shower gel dispensers in the shower. There is a free breakfast, which if you are like me and enjoy waffles, is more than adequate. The staff are very friendly and... More

The waffles are a very popular item on our breakfast. I will look into the items you mentioned about your room and research what our options are for combating them. I do appreciate the review and hope you see you again in the future. More
