I have used this hotel several times in the past when travelling to my parents in AZ. it is a half-way stopping point that is very convenient to I-25 and I-40. I also travel with my black lab dog and this hotel is great in allowing pets. The room is always very clean and welcoming. I feel safe when staying... More

One of the best hotels I have stayed in- and I have stayed in a lot. The facility and staff were so great. The food in the restaurant was above average...especially the portion for the complimentary breakfast. Christoff, my waiter for dinner gets a special nod from me. He went above and beyond the call of duty when I explained... More

I loved my stay at Rio Grande Inn. I had a late flight and by the time I got to the hotel I was exhausted. I checked in and while doing so the young ladies at the desk (Samantha and kelly) where very perfessional and sweet. They had great recommendations about what to do in old town. She got me... More

This is a nice hotel with nice amenities. Although this hotel is a little older it is well maintained. Even in the winter the outdoor pool is useable as it is covered. The weakness is the staff. The experience and the front desk was not that pleasant. This hotel has breakfast vouchers for adjacent restaurant. However, expect to wait... The... More

We had a long road trip and had to get a late start. Normally, I stay at the Best Western Plus in Santa Fe, but I chose this one (driving from AZ) because I didn't want to drive the extra distance at night to Santa Fe on potentially icy roads. We were pleasantly surprised; the hotel is quiet, the rooms... More

My daughter and I stayed 5 nights at this hotel. The service was excellent and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. There was a shuttle to Old Town; however, it was close enough to walk. It is close to the interstate if you are sightseeing by car. Breakfast was delicious and cooked to order. Dinner in the bar was... More
