Some History

Built along the original route 66, El Rey Court officially opened its doors in 1936. With its traditional Northern New Mexico adobe-style architecture the motor inn was a favorite among locals and road trippers alike. Throughout the years, the El Rey has seen many additions, renovations, upgrades, and changes. More rooms were built, the original carports were enclosed, the pool and hot tubs were added, and the neighboring motel (Alamo Court) was integrated into El Rey. The latest upgrades to El Rey Court were completed in 2018, refreshing the rooms, adding La Reina bar, and creating more spaces for guests and locals to discover.
