My family just had a great stay at the Best Wester El Rey Inn and Suites in Cedar City. We stopped in Cedar City to catch a play at the Utah Shakespeare Festival on our way to another destination; however, we found ourselves wanting to extend our stay here. When we checked in, Shelbie at the front desk was very... More

The El Rey is the perfect spot to stay while enjoying the Utah Shakespeare Festival !! You can walk to the theater, walk to dining, walk to fun shops, AND it is just a short drive to stunning Cedar Breaks National Monument. The rooms are spacious, beautifully appointed ;the pool is sparkling and a lovely continental breakfast is offered each... More

I've stayed here for every Utah Shakespeare Festival since '95 and recommend El Rey as easily the best lodging for festivalgoers. The recent renovation makes it even better. Pluses: reasonable rates, only two blocks from theatres and one block from nice old downtown, free breakfasts, and the staff are GREAT!

I've been staying here periodically for three decades and it just keeps getting better. Nice rooms, good breakfasts, great location, and the staff is wonderful. The manager, Enoch, is top-notch, and makes each guest feel important and valued.

We had to change motels on the spur of the moment. I walked into the El Rey to find Naomi behind the counter. She greeted me with a very friendly smile and attitude. I explained my situation and she quickly began to see what she could do for me. Naomi found me a very reasonable rate (it being Friday at... More

Clean, close and convenient for the festival. Close to shops and restaurants. Good motel for the price. Stayed there every year for 21 years. The only thing I would add is tables at the pool so we can play games and eat. I liked when there was coffee and Juice at the pool in the mornings, years ago. Weight room... More

Don't stay there during football camp! The room was ok, although the walk-in shower was a little annoying. VERY noisy hi school football players were allowed to run amok in the hotel, without much (if any adult supervision). The front desk person was apologetic, but nothing was done to quiet them.

I am very sorry our other guests had this impact on your stay. Our staff was able to talk to supervisors with a good result during their stay. In regards to your room, I found that there were other rooms available during that time. We strive to make sure our guests have the best room for their needs. Had this... More

crickets in the room, staff unfriendly when asking for a spoon or bowls at breakfast because a colleague forgot to put them available. Price paid for the room is to expensive for what you actually get.

The room we had was great for a family and had three queen size bed which slept six people, the room and furnishings were old but for the price it was a great deal. The breakfast was good and the staff was very friendly and helpful

I was influenced to make a reservation by the high Tripadvisor rating and positive comment. The recommendation was "right on!" Our room was large, clean and nicely appointed, with a recently updated, attractive bath. The staff were friendly and professional. Would definitely stay there again!
