Located on the original Route 66, this charming boutique hotel evokes the feel of old-time New Mexico. Set in an adobe-styled building that was built in 1936, El Rey Court incorporates modern amenities such as complimentary Wi-Fi and in-room sound systems with Southwestern-influenced decor throughout the property.

Check in time is listed as 3pm. We arrived at 3:07 and were told that our room wasn't ready and would take another 40 minutes. We went down the street to get some food and returned at 4:20. We were told our room still wasn't ready, but that check in was "guaranteed by 4." When we asked what that "guarantee" meant, the response was, "uhhh we don't have a protocol for that." When we asked for a manager, we were told she wasn't there, but that she would be contacting us about a discount for our stay. We still have not heard back from anyone. After almost 2 hours, we were finally able to check in. The room we were assigned was extremely minimal. It had no art at all, which the hotel boasts about on their website. The toilet ran almost constantly, the tub leaked, and the walls were paper thin. Would not recommend this place to anyone and would not stay here again. Extremely disappointed by the lack of service regarding the check in process.

Southwest detail and beautiful grounds. Roses blooming everywhere.

Been coming to the El Rey Inn (now Court) for 30 years. With the change in ownership there is also a change in atmosphere. This was a quaint 50s-60s Route 66 Motor Court. Now it is a glorified motel trying to have a southwest flair. It has lost the charm. There is also no charming breakfast room (no breakfast at all!) Tequila is a priority over breakfast. Also, taking the $28 bottle of shampoo, or body lotion is more important than having a convenient electric plug in the room or a shower head that actually sprays water on your body. We arrived at 8 minutes to 4 (Check-in is at 3) and rooms were not ready for us. Don't expect the El Rey of yesteryear!

We stayed here on for 1 night on June 5 2019 & I just wish we had been able to stay longer. The rooms are clean, quaint & spacious. We were in a room close to the main road & across from the on-site bar but didn’t hear any noise from either. They have wonderful full sized, high end toiletries in the bathroom instead of cheap single use items. My son really enjoyed the pool & the hot tub & the beds were very comfortable.

Our room had a small shared courtyard, most don't though.

Needs a lot of improvement. The bathroom faucet was 90% plugged up, I had to remove the aerator as it was plugged up. After that the water ran brown for a while and then cleared up. The inside of the fireplace glass was so dirty, you couldn't really see the gas logs or flames. Also, the spa water was the color of beef broth, YUK! and the sauna was very worn-out and small. Also, beware of staying there on hot summer days as the rooms are not air-conditioned.
