Let start with booking through trip advisor, $30 less then other sites. Never booked through them before but very satisfied. Upon arrival checkin and literally took 2 minutes, very pleased after a long drive. Room was the 3 queen family suite, very clean. Bathroom spotless. Beds super comfortable. Would not stay anywhere else. Neither should you. Oh ya, like many...

We just plain liked this place, and starting with one thing: plenty of outlets in the room. We like being able to park by our door. Good beds, clean, equipped, the staff was friendly, the dining area was clean, bright and well provided for guests. I would stay here again. Things were in a walking distance. It just felt friendly.

We stayed at this hotel when we came to visit our daughter. The location was great, right in the center of town. The staff was very friendly. The room was clean and very nicely decorated. The breakfast room was very comfortable and the food was great! This was the best continental breakfast we have ever had.

What a nice place to spend the night. Room furnished just right-- it had everything you need and nothing you don't need. Clean,quiet, and comfy. Breakfast looked ordinary but it was a cut above the usual. Our second stay but we will certainly be back again!

Simple but pleasant hotel in the centre of town. Hassle free check in. Was recommended a great restaurant by a staff member - Thankyou. Free parking, WIFI and breakfast. Good little hotel. Will return and recommend.

We stayed at the El Rey Inn and Suites again this year while doing business in Cedar City. This years stay was even better than our previous visits.

Pretty cool little motel snuggled in little podunk Cedar City. It's one of the oldest hotels in town. They try so hard to help people and have exceptional customer service. Would highly recommend to anybody who plans to visit Cedar City, Utah. Keep up the good work you guys! :)

Stayed at El Rey with my family last month. They have fantastic family suites with 3 queen size beds in them. Very clean and cozy. It was the perfect place at just the right price. Staff was excellent. Breakfast was awesome. Beds were really comfortable. Slept really well here.

Thank you for taking the time to leave this review. I had a guest ask me if they could take the mattress with them at check out. We laughed about about how it would look on top of their compact car. Thanks for choosing to stay with us. Until next time, safe travels.

We stay at this hotel or it's sister hotel next door every time we come to the Shakespeare Festival. That has been 21 years now. We enjoy the location as we are able to walk to all the shops on main street and walk down to the Shakespeare plays. The mattresses are super comfortable, the staff is friendly and helpful,...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the El Rey hotel. The rooms were very tasteful, clean, comfortable and roomy. Great amenities and the breakfast was not your typical continental...many choices and service was extremely good. The staff went out of their way to help our family. Location is perfectly convenient - walked less than one block to enjoy the Shakespeare...
