Where do we start? We absolutely loved our stay at the El Rey Inn!
The property is located a short drive away from the Plaza, but the positive trade-off is the fantastic room rate! Our room had two queen beds, huge and very comfortable chairs, a desk, and large, fluffy towels. The beds were very comfortable. Our room was located in a section built in the 1950's, and although it was only a short walk away from busy Cerillos Road, was incredibly quiet.
My kids got a kick out of the vintage bath fixtures! But that doesn't mean that the property is "old"...there is an abundance of pride demonstrated by management in the upkeep and appearance of this property. Inlaid, unique and hand-painted tiles decorate the walls both inside and out; while hand-painted flowers decorate the stucco on the exterior of the buildings. There are numerous fountains, as well as a playground for the kids, a heated pool (pink pool towels are located in the guest rooms).
The complimentary breakfast was wonderful, and although the seating area was crowded, the weather was perfect so we were able to take our food outside and eat by a fountain. There are also outdoor grills, and wireless internet access is free in the lobby area.
We regretted not being able to spend more time at this property, but we hope to return to Santa Fe one day just to visit the El Rey again!
