This property is all you would expect for a Motel 6. Basic accommodation, clean room, no breakfast. They advertise that you're within walking distance of the downtown area, but if you actually want to get to the Plaza, you better be ready for a short hike, not a stroll. That said, we had a good night's rest and were close... More

Certainly one of the worst motel experiences ever. I'd give it minus stars if I could. I suggest staying anyplace BUT this one. How to start? How about the price gouging? We accidentally happened to come to town a couple of days before the heaviest weekend in Santa Fe, for Indian Market. We were looking for a room just for... More

Great location, terrible motel. First, our reservation was botched because the staff can't spell. The refrigerator in our room leaked on the first night. On the second night the ceiling leaked water after a shower. Adding insult to injury, we were charged for three one nights when we stayed for only two nights! The ONLY saving grace of this place...

Nothing fancy, but clean and reasonable with friendly staff. Perfect location during Indian Market weekend, as you have IFAM right around the corner and SWAIA in walking distance. Would I come back? yes

It's often hard to find a motel at a reasonable price which isn't far far away from where one wants to visit, so this is a gem. Clean, minimal, courteous, lots of hot water and towels and I could walk, safely, to everything.

I was in a rush to check out the morning of July 31st. I accidentally left my laptop in my room when I was packing to leave. When I realized I left my laptop, I called the hotel to make arrangements to retrieve it, they claimed that it had not been found in my room by the cleaning staff. I... More

We had waited a bit too long to make our plans and needed to work out a place to stay in Santa Fe pretty quickly. After a bit of checking (and discovering that there was a special event on in town) we found out that there wasn’t much available in any kind of reasonable price range. We found the Motel... More

room #127, #114 and #111 The customer service is wonderful, the remodeling is good, especially as to the new lighting in the rooms. The new furniture is pretty nice too. The parking lot is nearly always quite full; this motel is well-frequented, reservations are often needed in advance especially in Spring and Summer.

The location was great; we pulled into the parking lot, and left the car there for most of our stay. We walked everywhere. Blocks from downtown, Whole Foods, Railway area. Great running trail in the Railway district. Great central location, with easy driving access to Turquoise Trail, The SF Opera House, Chimayo and Taos. This is a "budget" hotel, yes,... More

The Good: Location, friendly desk staff, free parking although it can be tight, reasonable price, especially with AARP. The Bad: Dated and worn rooms, couldn't get wifi connection. The Ugly: Single serving coffeemaker is a mess to use.
