This is a great B&B, we really enjoyed our stay. I brought my wife out for a long weekend before monthly work trip to Albuquerque. Great location for day trips into Santa Fe, Albuquerque, Tent Rocks Monument, Sandia Peak, etc.

Delicious pumpkin pancakes and bacon for breakfast. Our room was not in the main building, but a separate building with one other room. Nice they allow dogs there. Room was beyond old, which can be charming, but just in poor repair. Holes in the floorboards. In fact our dog was up much of the night, chasing what we guessed were... More

We are very sorry your stay was not up to your expectation, but glad you enjoyed breakfast. You stayed in one of our casitas, which is in a separate building. This building is in a historic building with 2 ft adobe walls, beamed ceilings and original plank floors. The four, 1/2 to 1 inch holes are typical in older, wooden... More

We stayed for one night because we wanted to sort out wedding details and we needed a mini getaway. Cynthia and Spence were more than accommodating. Spence went out of his way to do a tasting for my fiancé and I. Cynthia was so organized and always quick to respond. They are very sweet people . The food and room... More

Nichole, it was a pleasure spending time with you and Andres planning your wedding for September! You are a delightful couple and we look forward to being part of your special day. It's great when couples stay with us before making their final decision and really get the feel of the property. Asta (poodle) loves it when he gets to... More

This is a beautiful bed & breakfast built around a courtyard with a big cottonwood tree. Spence, one of the owners along with his wife, Cynthia welcomed us. We enjoyed two peaceful nights there. The food and the service was excellent. We enjoyed the fireplace in our room. Their dogs were friendly. Cynthia recommended some interesting tours around the area.... More

We just needed a place to stay for one night while traveling from Arizona back to Colorado. We have a dog and never thought we could find a B&B that was pet friendly. Hacienda Vargas was such a pleasant surprise. Spence was quietly waiting for us at the entrance and showed us around. We didn't know what to expect since... More

Terry - Thank you for your review, it was a pleasure having you, Darlene and your four-footed friend as our guests. We love being pet-friendly and work hard to keep our rooms clean so that guests not traveling with pets or that have allergies are just as happy! My husband, Spence, works hard to be a good host while not... More

Almost exactly a month ago, my husband and I said our "I do's" at beautiful Hacienda Vargas Bed and Breakfast Inn and Wedding Chapel. When I was planning our wedding, I wanted somewhere that was outdoors and really captured New Mexico. I grew up around the cottonwood trees and remember climbing them as a kid; what better place to capture... More

Deena, thank you for your wedding review. You, Kyle, your families and friends all made for a very special evening! Our grounds, trees and courtyard make for a beautiful wedding spot and the historic bell that used to be the community alarm bell is one of our perfect touches. We expect to see you and Kyle back for an anniversary!... More

I had such a horrible experience with the staff that I could not bring myself to even consider staying here. For advertising as a chapel, the groundskeeper, the housekeeper and the owners are terrible rude, with no customer experience. The entire place has a horrible smoke smell to it. Just awful. I do not recommend even considering this for a... More

First of all, they treated us terrible once we first got there! They had snotty comments about our group of people! They treated us rudely during breakfast! The room wasn't clean, and smelled of moth balls! The Toilet was disgusting. The owner had mentioned to show us the wedding venues and she never showed up!

I'm very sorry for your experience at Hacienda Vargas and your dissatisfaction with the room. It was unfortunate that you made your reservation for 2 people, but you actually had 6 in your party. The room you reserved was a two-room suite and could accommodate up to 4 persons with advance notice and never would have been rented it out... More

I had to read the "terrrible" reviews for this bed & breakfast because absolutely nothing about our stay was terrible! LOL. From the very beginning, Cynthia very quickly returned my e-mails before I ever even made a reservation. The prices were very clear. There were no surprises. This is a rural location. That's exactly why we chose this place to... More

Thank you to Cynthia and Spence who made my wedding reception so sweet and romantic. Cynthia was gracious about explaining packages in the beginning, and nailing down all the details during the planning stages. We were able to see other wedding events, and bring our vendors around to orient everyone. All of the planning made for a carefree, outdoor reception... More
