We only stayed one night, however, we would not have made it longer if we had the chance. I love quaint, independent hotels. The people generally treat you better and make you feel at home. That was not the problem here at all. First, I had paid for this room more than a month before our arrival and we did not get the room we were supposed to. Instead we had a very simple room with two beds, bathroom and fridge. I expected the larger room with the sofa/sitting area as was described when I booked it and a microwave. Not a huge deal, just a little disappointing. The beds were decent and the noise level was very low, which was good of course. Biggest problem was in the morning when we were greeted with very large bugs in the bathroom and vanity areas. We do not have these bugs where we live so I don't know if they were cockroaches or some strange very large beetle. They reminded me of a smaller version of the cockroaches I've seen in South Carolina, which are huge. These two that we flushed were about 1.5 inches. So, like my review started out, there's no way we would have stayed another night. We enjoyed the city of Santa Fe and the front desk people told us about a very good mexican food restaurant called Maria's. It was an awesome suggestion for dinner.
I am very disppointed that the El Rey Inn had the problems we experienced and I'm hoping that future customers do not deal with anything of this sort.
