It was a surprise because we had not planned to stay in Santa Fe when we passed through, but it was late and raining. The hotels downtown were all full due to some convention, so we spotted the El Ray from the street. How charming and friendly! Caretakers could not have been nicer, pointing out a great diner in walking distance and finding us a sweet room that we could park our bike in front of. Loved the skylight in the bathroom! Lots of throw-back touches for a comfortable stay. Hope we can return sometime. What a great break from a box motel!
