“Good value, good location”
Reviewed December 1, 2010

Attractive 3-floor motel wrapped around an interior courtyard which is the car park. Staff are very friendly and speak perfect English. The reception office has free wifi and a car rental desk; it overlooks the entrance to the courtyard so the parking lot is reasonably secure, though a bit narrow. Rooms are large, clean, and attractive. There's a pool and bar at the back of the courtyard. Easy to find, just 2 blocks off Mex-1 as it passes through the center of town. Great location too: it's right in the tourist zone, a few blocks walk from the Malecon and from dozens of restaurants, clubs, and bars along Av Lopez Mateos.

Have stayed at this hotel numerous times while visiting Ensenada. The uniqueness and charm of this hotel keeps me coming back. Staff is always warm and welcoming, rooms are always clean. I also appreciate the efforts of the hotel in being environmental. Hotel is centrally located near all of the main tourist attractions in the best part of Ensenada, can't go wrong. Bottomline, this hotel is the best stay for your money!

Outstanding hotel with outstanding service! This is by far the best hotel to stay at in Ensenada! Quiet and relaxing and right on the main street. This hotel and restaurant is really something special, since its been around from the start.

My boyfriend and I were enjoying our stay at this hotel until our room was robbed while we were at dinner the second night of our stay. When we returned to the room, it was ransacked. The crooks stole everything from a laptop and cell phone to work documents and makeup. I suspect it was an inside job. The managers of the hotel were of little help and didn't seem to understand our anger and frustration. Thank goodness we had our passports and rental car so we could get the heck out of there!

Posada001, General Manager at Americas Best Value Inn - Posada El Rey Sol, responded to this review, August 24, 2010
At Posada El Rey Sol our commitment is the quality of service and security to our customers. And proof of that its that we have 24 hrs. Security personnel, electronic keys and private parking. We take seriously all the client comments, and we had follow up each one. I’m surprise about hearing of you just until august, since your situation was due on April, anyway, I remember your case in particular. Since we took you to the police station so you can do the report and the Police took take care of this situation, also we checked the electronic readings of the door and was only your key the one who opened the door. According to our Hotel policies, we won’t be responsible of other persons you may invite to your room, that they are not registered at the reception.
And all our employees, are absolutely trusted and the already had at least between 10 to 20 years working with us, and we didn’t have a complaint like this before. The feedbacks like yours made us to reinforce our security and we are thankful about it so we can improve our services to our customers.

Unsure of which Hotel to reserve, I researched like crazy and El Rey Sol was the result. I was looking for a clean, quiet, cheaper hotel on "Downtown"; and that was exactly what I got! A plus, was the Hotel and Restaurant's staff; they were very helpful. The food at the Restaurant was delicious. Try the hot chocolate and the Chilaquiles-Traditional style (They are spicy though).

The only tip I can give you is to take sandals for the shower. It is clean, but old.

Stayed here over Baja 500 weekend. Had reservations months in advance but on arrival were told rooms with two queen beds (as reserved) were only availble for one of the four rooms. We were given rooms with two twins and told queens would be available the following day. We also had issues on the price for the rooms which they changed or attempted to change throughout the stay or check out day. We also had them tell us an item had been removed from the in room bar, something we had not used. They could not provide any inventory of the bar and could not even tell us what it was except that they wanted $3.00 for it, saying it might have been toothpaste. We refused to pay for something they could not show us what it was or when we supposedly took it. I would not recommend this hotel/motel to anyone. They tried to tell us at check out that they had erred on the price and wanted more money for the rooms, we refused that too. They take every opportunity to attempt to extort money out of you!!

globetrotter60, Owner at Americas Best Value Inn - Posada El Rey Sol, responded to this review, January 28, 2012
As the owner, I am very sorry you had so many problems with our staff. All the front desk staff along with the manager have been replaced with great staff and manager, Diego, that has us now placed in # 2 position out of 33 hotels in Ensenada. So as #2, we try harder. One of my daughters is now on board, so please reconsider us on your next visit. We have upgrades, as we are now triplesheeting our beds for more sanitation, new LCD TVs, friendly and pretty receptionists, and more. We offer the Fast Lane Pass so your return can be made in minutes, not hours. Hope to see you soon, maybe for the BAja 500.
