This wasn’t meant to be a full post about El Rey Court but this place is so wonderful and we took so many photos that I feel like I need to share them with you.
I’m sure you are as curious as me and you would like to know a little more about the history of this place. Well, here it goes. El Rey Court originally opened it’s doors in 1936. With it’s traditional northern New Mexico Pueblo style modern aesthetic the motel has gone through a few renovations, additions and changes. Rooms have been added, the swim club and hot tubs were added and the neighbour motel has been integrated into El Rey Court. The motel as you can see it today has been finalised in 2018 by Jay and Alison Carroll (owners of Wonder Valley) and their business partners. A jewel in the mother road of Santa Fé reviving its allure for a new generation.
We will get to that Santa Fé travel guide as I promised very soon…
