HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2016

The staff at the El Taj was extremely helpful and very pleasant at all times. Great location. I recommend staying at El Taj. Having a kitchen and laundry was a luxury. We stayed in the two bedroom condo and found it to be very roomy.

We paid an extra $15 for a roll away bed- which was actually a normal mattress, not one of the thin cheap ones :) and it was a perfect set up. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful!
