This motel was recommended by Shakespeare ticket staff and it was indeed great for our family. Truly a short couple of blocks to all the plays. The breakfast was pleasant, setting pleasant, rooms nice. I would love to give this place a perfect rating, but there were some weak points in their daily housekeeping. I hope they get on top...

Very clean hotel. Large family suite accommodated 5 and two dogs. Staff was friendly and helpful. Beautiful town. Plenty to do and see. Pool was small but well kept. Ate at the adjacent cafe. Good food and portions for the price. Would definitely stay here again.

Thank you for staying with while passing through town. I appreciate you comments about your stay. With our recent renovation we added 4 rooms to our hotel that are pet friendly rooms. For the cleanliness for our guests and their pets, these rooms have tile floors. They have been very popular with our guests. Thank you for staying with us.

We have been staying at this property anually for over 25 years. The location for the Shakespeare festival is great. However checking in this afternoon we were astonished at the surly and rude reception we received from the front desk staff. Worst in 25 years. They must have been having a bad day. We are staying for three nights. Curious...

We stayed at the El Rey on our annual overnight getaway to the Shakespeare Festival. After a pleasant dinner at the always-yummy Pizza Factory, we walked the three blocks to enjoy an amazing play, then walked back to enjoy a wonderfully comfortable pillow-top bed. The rooms have been recently remodeled, and I was impressed with how extremely clean ours was....
