“A Taste of New Mexico”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

We enjoyed our stay so much at the El Ray Inn in Santa Fe New Mexico. This is truly a taste of the Land of Enchantment! Very peaceful, very clean and most beautifully decorated! We were created with warm smiles and they took care of our room needs. The grounds also are very beautifully done in the Southwest flavor. This is where one needs to stay if you want a peaceful and authentic look and stay in Santa Fe. Thank you El Ray... we will be back!

Room Tip: All rooms have great qualities and great views. Just depends on what you need.

Having stayed at the El Rey many times before, it was its consistently good product. The ground were not as beautiful as in the summer, but winter has a way of changing that. We stayed in room 61 and the rooms are well appointed, clean and very comfortable. Excellent shower with great fluffy towels. The instant on fireplace in the winter is a nice touch. Service staff at checking were friendly and courteous. Overall, we will continue to stay there and enjoy our stay. Nice to have pure Santa Fe for the accommodations.

What reason what I have to stay any other place? This was a gift at the end of a 3-day journey through New Mexico. Accommodation, comfort, aesthetic, family-owned, quaint, caring staff, affordable. Thank you for your prior thoughtfulness in anticipation of the needs of the traveler.
Terrific breakfast from which to send one.

My compliments. Beautiful.

We have stayed here many times and are never disappointed. I love the quiet, the nice breakfast and southwestern atmosphere. Trip into town is easy, but we avoid the tourist areas anyway. The old fashioned motor court feel is very welcoming.

Last year we were lucky enough to stay at the El Rey Inn. Previously we always stayed downtown at an expensive hotel near the Plaza. We were always disappointed with the hotel so in March 2012, we decided to give the El Rey Inn a shot. And we were not disappointed. We stay in one of the rooms with a fireplace. The room is like a mini suite where you can entertain. We look out of our room to a beautiful courtyard. And even though it is on a busy street, Cerrillos Road, when you close your door, it is perfectly silent. The WIFI is amazing (unlike the unnamed expensive Plaza hotel). Do yourself a favor and stay at the El Rey Inn.

The El Ray is a sanctuary in the middle of Santa Fe. We stayed in a "Deluxe" room that had a gas fireplace that was very cozy. The Inn has classic but new Santa Fe style. The staff was great and the place has a lot of history. We will keep coming back to the El Ray each time we visit Santa Fe.

Room Tip: The Deluxe rooms and the fireplace are great on snowy days.
