Upon arriving at the hotel, having driven down Cerrillos Rd, we were a little concerned that we had 5 days booked at what initially appeared to be an overpriced hotel. The neighborhood wasn't very nice, with a car wash next door, and a used car lot across the sluggish, congested street. Traffic in the old run-down area was awful.
Our room turned out to be very clean and well furnished. The window style air conditioning was effective and provided white noise in the room. We were concerned that we would hear traffic noise in the evenings, but that concern was unfounded. The fantastic landscaping that the hotel maintains effectively killed any noise from the traffic.
The bed was very comfortable. The included breakfast was nice. The staff was very friendly and started every morning by asking if we'd like the hot tortillas and a banana. Also, there were boiled and peeled eggs for our protein.
All in all, if we ever go to Santa Fe again, we would be very likely to stay at the El Rey. By the way, the nearby restaurant, The Pantry, was also a fantastic place. We ended up eating there about 4 times in our 5 day stay. Breakfast and dinner, with sopapillas for dessert were fantastic!
