Not sure what I'd call this place. The owner has the restaurant and the 2 rooms next door. As we prefer to stay at quaint inns or Bed and Breakfast places, our options were limited. This really isn't either. The size was good but after paying the owner (the only time we saw her) we got a very quick tour... More

josefinas, Owner at Josefina's Old Gate, responded to this review

Sorry you were so disappointed....Yes we were concerned with the bride next door...There were 11 attendants and we were not prepaired for that type of traffic in our room or the facility ......especially when we had other guest staying. When the reservation was made the offer of the breakfast was extended, but not required. We are a Historic Inn and... More

Josefina's is a neat little place that serves some great food. Nothing super fancy, just delicious. Love the egg quesadilla for breakfast and just has the turkey wrap for lunch. Both just great. And the setting is quaint, historic and very soothing. Waitress and chef are great and the chef came out to see if we liked the turkey wrap.... More

I booked the room for my wedding night and was very impressed with the room size and old world decor. It was charming. The defective Kuerig machine leaked coffee the next morning and my husband used two of the bathroom hand towels to clean up the spill. I received a nasty voice message from one of the owners while on... More

We found this lovely restaurant by accident. As a matter of fact we found the whole town by accident and am so glad we did. We had a great breakfast on the loveliest patio in town. Next time we are headed east we will go to Josefinas's again to eat and maybe stay in one of the rooms they have... More

Stayed over night for wife's birthday. Wanted to take advantage of wineries in the area and not have to drive. Simply stated the room exceeded our expectations. The inn only has two rooms one king and one queen. Both in close proximity to each other as the structure was clearly a large home historically. Our reception from the owner was... More

Did not stay in the Inn, but we have eaten lunch there several times and found the atmosphere and the food to be very good. The menu is creative, the portions are good sized and taste great. Just a few steps from the town square, it's worth the trip.

Located right in the heart of Old Mesilla, New Mexico, Josefina’s Old Gate is definitely not your ordinary overnight stay. It’s not a bed & breakfast and it’s not a hotel. The entire Josefina’s area is an indoor café, a patio café, an antiques store, and the inn. The inn is comprised of only two rooms, a king suite and... More

We were raised in Las Cruces and just coming home for a short visit, but wanted something out of the ordinary. Josefina's fit that bill perfectly - a beautiful little gem of an Inn, just a few short steps away from the Old Mesilla Town Square. With every little detail you can tell the owner truly goes out of her... More

Josefina's is a nice little cafe for a relaxing lunch. We've been there several times because it is peaceful, within walking distance of the Old Mesilla Plaza, and they serve a good local wine from St. Claire's Winery. We've always enjoyed ourselves. The food is good...nothing special or memorable...but not bad. We go there for the atmosphere. I don't know... More
