I stayed at the El Rey in October 2012 and had the opportunity to view at least 4 rooms, each uglier and than the preceding. The rooms are outdated. The furniture appears to have been gathered from one of the used furniture shops along main street. The bathrooms are pitiful mostly without windows or any ventilation. The TV sets are antiques with minimal cable access. A truly depressing two nights. Pay the extra money and stay at one of the fine Santa Fe hotels. It will be worth the extra expense.
