Americas Best Value Inn - Posada El Rey Sol
Ranked #5 of 38 Hotels in Ensenada
Reviewed 11 July 2017

I have stayed here a couple of times. The first was a romantic weekend with the honeymoon suite and it was very nice. I love the architecture of this hotel and all the amenities are great. The only thing you might bring is your own shampoo and soaps if you desire the fancy stuff. But otherwise the pool, the bar, the location, and the staff are all wonderful. Oh and they offer a breakfast voucher for a restaurant across the street and the food is great.

Definitely a worthwhile place to stay.

Hello Eric,

Thank you very much for your review and your continued patronage through the years. We work hard at providing the best possible customer experience, and your words help us!
We do have a more simple and eco-friendly approach to our soaps and shampoos, but we make up for it in other amenities.

We look forward to your next visit,
Jeannelle Bitterlin

Beauty must truly be in the eyes of the beholder. I say that after reading some of the reviews that attack this hotel. My wife and our three children come the Ensenada at least two weekends every month. We stay at El Rey because the location is excellent, the staff pleasant, the rooms adequate and we have always been treated as if we mattered. The fact is that the hotel and the area are in Mexico which necessarily means buildings, food and service will likely be different than in the U.S. However, if one is looking for a reasonable price, in a great location, in Mexico, then this is the place, small problems notwithstanding.

Room Tip: Stay on 3rd floor it is quieter

Location is great, right on the main strip, but not in the middle, so it's not bombarded by noise.

I left my cell phone in the room and realized once across the border. They actually took their time to look into express courier options and send it back to me!

Friendly workers, nice and clean rooms. We (3 adults) stayed in 2 queen bed room and had enough room for us. Beds were nice. Wifi was really slow almost all the time. Nice area, traffic noise was not bothering at all. We didn't have breakfast, but there was a lot nice cafeterias near the hotel. Everything was close, shopping, restaurants, bars.. I could stay there again :)

There was a nice small pool, but the weather was rainy so we didn't try it.

Stayed here one nigjt to go fishing. Slow check in due to only one clerk and one person checking in for 3 people.

Real friendly greeting and easy check in. Security guard at entrance and walking distance to all restaurants.

Nice bathrooms and smaller room for 4 people but good enough. I will stay there again.

Hello,

We appreciate your business and your opinions. My apologies for the slow check-in, we usually have more than one clerk at peak hours, but there are of course, exceptions.

We hope to see you again soon, and just FYI we do have larger rooms for four people on the balcony side of the hotel.

Kind regards
JB
