Arrival - Departure:


Hotel El Rancho is a dazzling mix of colors, materials and furnishings. As Jack Corgan, the hotel’s original architect recalled years later, Griffith ordered “a Ranch Style architecture, compatible with the rugged country surrounding the pioneer town of Gallup.” Well done Jack! Local stone and hand-hewn beams are featured in the lobby with its oversized fireplace, curved staircase and balcony. No two guest rooms are identical. But each is furnished with eclectic western décor in keeping with Griffith’s original vision.

One King Deluxe

Our most popular room. King bed, separate seating area, old west décor such as live edge hardwood headboard, ceiling fans, and traditional black & white tiled bathrooms. Some rooms with private or shared balconies. Accommodates two people.

Two Queens Deluxe

Each room is configured slightly different. Two queen beds. Comfy bedding, ceiling fan, traditional western décor. Accommodates up to four people.

Marx Bros. Suite

Classic El Rancho, with western furnishings and modern amenities. One king bed and two double beds, so it’s a cozy, family size suite able to accommodate 4 — 6 people. Two separate sleeping areas with a door between them. The king bedroom includes a small seating area.

Roy Rogers Suite

Great for families. Accommodate up to 6 guests with one king bed and two queen beds. Each of the two bedrooms has lounge seating. Includes a small kitchenette with a dining table. This second floor Suite has a private balcony. Traditional western décor completes this authentic El Rancho experience.

Presidential Suite

Stay like the celebrities did. Accommodates two guests with a plush king bed and separate lounge area. Classic southwestern colors, textures and materials. Larger bathroom with original stone veneer and blue tile walls. The Presidential Suite is ideal for creating your own western getaway.

The John Wayne Suite

As the story goes, when The Duke checked in, he insisted two rooms be joined to create accommodations more to his liking. Old-timers say he even dictated the furnishings! Today the John Wayne Suite pays homage to Hollywood’s most famous cowboy. Open floorplan, high ceilings, large windows and hardwood floors. French doors open to the pool. Lounge area with pull-out sofa. Separate sleeping area has a king size bed with a mattress topper for extra comfort. Fully equipped kitchen, plus a stacked washer and drier.

All our rooms include free Wi-Fi, HDTV, complimentary in-room bottled water, coffee and tea.
