Stayed here from 10/2 to 10/6 in a ground floor room called "Hopi". We were glad to find a comfortable bed, but there isn't much room to store one's clothing except to pile it into the closet on the top shelf, or stuff into the nightstand. Lighting is inadequate in this room. Room shades were difficult to operate. Water pressure... More

I stayed in Room 1 as a single female for 4 nights in Oct 2014. My room was nice and very clean and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was a bit on the small size (large by NYC standards) which could be an issue if more than 1 person stayed in the room. The room had a secure (locked... More

Stayed Oct 13, 2014. No staff available upon arrival at 7PM!....messy handwritten note with incomplete info for finding/entering room...had to ask guests for directions. Left waiting at restaurant door and after finally being seated, service was so slow we had to ask for someone to take order. Room decor lovely...only plus. Be forwarned that your room could be up a... More

It's like your own little condo with your own private entrance from outside, a sun room and a mini patio with seats! You can open the door to the patio for natural air flow instead of relying on the artificial air handlers that usually still feel and smell stuffy. There is an A.C. unit that we used for a few...

We stayed here last weekend! what a awesome place! The innkeeper was amazing! the room was beautiful! It was located just 2 blocks from the square! We had a little courtyard with a few chair that you could relax in. The breakfast the next day was great. We are planning on going back this winter! Awesome stay!!!!

We nearly stayed at Inn of the Governors, but changed our reservation to the Vanessie after reading about it and I'm so glad we did! We were in the Tesuque room in the courtyard, with a queen bed, a separate room with a banco, two fireplaces, an enclosed patio, PLUS an outdoor patio in the courtyard with a relaxing little... More

This was our first trip to Santa Fe, and we found the Vanessie on Hot-wire, and it was too good a deal to pass up. The highlights of our stay were the fantastic breakfast every morning, the large comfortable room which made staying for a week nice, and the nice folks who run the inn. The inn is located in...

Just got back from our stay at the Inn at Vanessie. A very pleasant surprise. Our room was comfortable, the Pecos, but kind of dark and on the smaller side. It had a king bed and only one chair in which to sit. So the second person had to sit on the bed. But overall, the room was very quaint... More

I purchased a 4-star hotel in the plaza area of Santa Fe through Hot-Wire. Unfortunately, the Inn at Vanessie is not a 4-star HOTEL, which to me denotes that certain amenities are available. Hot-Wire and I did not see eye to eye on this, and it is unlikely that I will use Hot-Wire again. That being said, the Inn at... More
