The facility is going through a restructuring, therefore, the environment is not as organized as before, the last two times, when I stayed there. Hopefully, El Rey will post when the restructure is completed. The staff are great, and are doing their best to make Tenants as comfortable as possible. Overall I felt safe while staying there.

2/10 Poor

This is worst lodging that I have ever seen and It does not deserve to be even considered for a rating . It was so bad that I immediately left and found lodging elsewhere. My request for a refund was denied, This looks like a run down, delapidated Brothel . Expedia should Not be promoting lodging of this type. Please refund my money.

The picture of the room and lobby that the hotel shows on its website differ greatly from what you find when you arrive at the hotel. The rooms are very humid, the internet service is terrible, the connection is down all the time. There is no cable service, they have Netflix as the only provider, although they mention that they also have Disney plus and amazon prime, it is not true. In the windows, one had mosquito netting and the other did not, I had to fight with the mosquitoes that were in the room. The curtains in the bathroom were broken and dirty, I have pictures of it all. They never cleaned the room. I asked for an invoice, and they told me that by hotel policy, if I wanted an invoice, it would increase the price, more than the price I had already paid through XPEDIA. I will not return to this hotel, and I do not recommend anyone to visit it.
