Santa Fe Area

El Rey Inn has offered fine Southwestern lodging for over 79 years! Built in 1936 in traditional northern New Mexico adobe style, El Rey Inn was then referred to as a motor court. The hotel is located on what was originally Route 66. Locally owned and managed by the White family since 1973, El Rey remains Santa Fe's garden hotel as the city grows around its 5 lush acres. Visitors appreciate El Rey's mid-town location as they explore museums, shop and gallery hop, delight in the Santa Fe Opera, golf at Marty Sanchez Links de Santa Fe, and ski and snowboard at Ski Santa Fe. New Mexico School for the Deaf is located just up Cerrillos Road.

On nearby Santa Michael’s Dr. is the Santa Fe University of Art & Design. Its degreed program includes music, creative writing, photography, theatre, art, graphic design, moving image arts & more. Santa Fe Trails Transit System 505/955-2001 provides bus service throughout Santa Fe, with a convenient stop right in front of the inn.
