We were at El Rey Sol on August 9-13, 2016. I am a native of Ensenada, so I knew exactly where the hotel was located and what it looked like. I know it's an old hotel, but I knew that over time it's been maintained. However, sadly, I was dissappointed. First, we hadto ask for a second key, needed extra... More

Hello, Wow! We are so embarrased and upset that you had such a terrible experience with us. I can only extend my apologies to you and your family, and find out on my side what happened that you had so many incidents. Although of course there are human errors and "bad luck" no customer of ours should have as many... More

For years the quality of the internet connection was highly dependent on the location of your room. The situation has now changed: wifi is excellent also in some remote rooms. So, the place is fine for business travellers as well. The laundry service can still be improved to avoid the struggle to get a laundry bag. Also if you want... More

I've been staying at this place for the past few years, and their honeymoon suite is still the same. I can't say about their other rooms because I've never stayed in another type of room here. I can say that through the windows, they don't look fancy. You can ask the front desk to show you the room first, before... More

When we first pulled up to the hotel, I was hesitant for a minute. I wasn't expecting the rooms to be as nice as they were, for Mexican hotels. The outside of the hotel needs a remodel, but once again the rooms a very nice. My only complaint is the Wifi. I was not able to go online, very slow.... More

We were fortunate to find parking right next to our room, which was on the first floor, and we didn't move our car at all and the car was safe the whole time we stayed there. The location is prime - it's in the middle of everything so there's food and shopping all within walkable distance. Nothing was ever more... More

Hello, Thanks you for taking the time to review us. I'm very surprised and concerned for what you mention regarding the bathroom, they have been recently remodeled (last year to be exact) so there shouldn't be issues, especially the awful odor you describe!!

My wife and I made a mid-week overnight trip to Ensenada from Los Angeles. We very much liked the location of the hotel from which we walked almost everywhere. Our encounters with the staff were positive. Check-in was OK. The young lady appeared to be a little overwhelmed with our questions regarding recommendations and directions.

My husband and I stayed here last Saturday and Sunday night. It is more of a charming, vintage style motel, with car parking in the middle and the rooms in a horseshoe shape around it. It is very clean, safe, and, as others have noted, in just a great location. We easily walked to restaurants, bars, & shops. The front... More
