This hotel has a wonderful location within walking distance to the center of Santa Fe and offers a lovely breakfast every morning. Our room was large and clean, but quite dark and the lighting in the bathroom was murky. We weren't able to open the shutters much because we were at street level and people were walking right by our... More

First of all I have never stayed in Santa Fe before but I always visited on train. Since the Indian Market was on the weekend I decided to stay with my newly wife. This place was so relaxing as soon as we started going to our room. The Inn didn't feel like an inn but more like a place to... More

We have stayed here for many years. It is an amazing oasis, complete with comfortable accommodations, excellent food, entertainment and close proximity to the plaza. Always look forward to an escape here. Wonderful staff.

It was a wonderful place to stay. Very convenient--within walking distance to the Plaza and all activities. Each room is unique. Ours, the Atalaya Room, had an indoor porch and an outside patio. Very clean and well kept up. The breakfasts were great--bacon and eggs and waffles and fresh strawberries and blueberries and granola, etc. The piano bar at night... More

We took a chance on Hotwire and got this gem of a hotel! We stayed in the Atalaya room. It was a cozy room, decorated with New Mexican rustic pieces. The room had a kiva fireplace, covered indoor patio, and also an outdoor courtyard. The mattress was comfortable - the only negative about our entire stay was the face that... More

We had the Hopi room downstairs. Nice interior with a Kiva fireplace (for winter only). I liked the solid hand carved doors - both closet and bath. The hostess checked us in and personally showed us to the room and that we had a gift of a small "dream catcher" on our bed - a nice touch. Very comfortable bed.... More

Stayed here four nights while we visited the galleries,Los alamos and the opera. Overall we were very pleased, large clean room with a fireplace ,friendly and helpful staff and a great location for walking to the plaza or the rail yard ( too far for canyon road) . The inn was being repainted while we were there freshing it up.... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Inn. The breakfast, staff and the service is top notch. Great location.. An opportunity to rekindle a marriage. Fireplace in our room, so it set the pace even if we didn't use it. Yvonne

I LOVE this Inn. Very good location, and GREAT breakfast. The room was upstairs, without an elevator, so beware if stairs are a problem. We had a nice patio off of our room. The bathrooms were very good and had been remodeled.
