Inn of the Turquoise Bear B&B is so Awesome! The adobe bungalows, the wonderful assortment of home-cooked breakfasts all add to the wonderful atmosphere of the Inn. The guest service was above and beyond all expectation. A must stay if ever in Santa Fe. Will be going back! Pat Ganzinotti

The owner/innkeeper provided top notch customer service during our short visit to Santa Fe. He mapped a path to experience the best of the High Road to Taos, told us some great spots in the city, and prepared a delicious breakfast of lemon ricotta pancakes, turkey sausage, banana smoothies, and fresh juice/coffee. We were told if we didn't like anything,... More

A tranquil place to call home for a few days in Santa Fe, the Inn offers a welcoming atmosphere, lovely grounds, spacious accommodations with a cozy feel, and deliciously various breakfast choices. The host could not have been more gracious, attentive, and helpful. The Inn is only a short walk from the Plaza and all else that the center of... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the "Bear"...first the food. We loved that they were flexible about breakfast, serving from 7:30 to 9:30am. In addition to a wonderful hot entree, there is also self-serve coffee and tea, granola and other cereals, juice, toast, and other bread items. We are vegetarian and they accommodated us very gracefully. And it was all... More

This inn is classic Santa Fe with its traditional adobe architecture and beautiful grounds. After a few nights backpacking through the mountains the inn was a welcome retreat. The location is excellent. We walked or biked everywhere. Dan was an excellent host and went out of his way to accommodate my food allergy. Blue corn pancakes are now my new... More

The Inn is the perfect location from which to begin the day of walking to the Plaza or visiting the Santa Fe Botanic Gardens or driving to any one of the lovely restaurants in the area. It is a gorgeous, beautifully landscaped inn: a place to rest, relax and regroup after a busy day of sightseeing in the Santa Fe... More

I'm a repeat guest of the Turquoise Bear. This was my first visit since the inn transferred ownership, and I'm pleased to say that it has lost none of its charm. It's close to the Plaza, in a quiet neighborhood. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Breakfast is delicious and the service is friendly. The historic property has gardens, patios... More

We spent 4 days/nights here, and the rooms were comfortable, and well appointed. The grounds were beautiful and the breakfasts were wonderful, with a different selection each day. The staff was friendly and helpful and the rooms were all different and unique. Very convenient to downtown and private parking were nice. Area was quiet at night and beds were comfortable.... More
