We had stayed at this motel when it was a Travelodge and found its re-birth as a Motel 6 to be a bit disappointing. First the good things, the location is ideal and the price for Santa Fe more than fair. Walking distance to the Plaza is a big deal as parking in downtown Santa Fe can be a challenge.... More

Arrived at room for 2 with a dog. Had booked a king bed, was only a single bed. Staff could not give us a room as booked. So we asked to cancel. They argued, fought and refused?! If you want to be treated terribly by a horrible staff, go to this motel.

We first made a reservation at another Hotel 6, but we left (see review). Then we called and found the one that is actually within walking distance to the downtown plaza. The staff is friendly. We had two dogs with us, so we stayed in what used to be a non-smoking area. It was quiet and allowed us to take... More

Excellent service, Stephanie was the best, very helpful and friendly all the time. Clean, walking distance to the Plaza. Very good service for the price. Better service than in other more expensive hotels. I recommend it.

So we needed an inexpensive, clean room for 4 nights while we attended a relative's wedding. I looked at the crazy expensive places that are available and decided I just needed the basics. That's what this motel provides, but with a level of customer service I have not seen in many expensive hotels. The young ladies at the front desk... More

Yes, this is an older hotel and if you have to have brand new better book somewhere else. We were impressed with how clean it was and the location is excellent. We arrived at 9:00AM and were able to check into our room, we walked to the Plaza in less than 15 minutes and had a wonderful day in Santa... More

I stayed at this motel 6 due to location and price. It met both criteria. When I showed up I was a little worried in that this place is worn down. A wall to the east was knocked down by a car. The door locks were old fashioned and rough to work. The only thing that was up-to-date was the... More

I have stayed at Motel 6 near the Plaza several times in the last 20 years. You get what you pay for. I have found the rooms to be consistently clean, but worn around the edges. But when I am in Santa Fe I apply this bit of wisdom: sleep cheap, eat well. I do recommend bringing a few clothes... More

Costing more than your average Motel 6, I thought this one might be a bit more "upscale" than the others, which I'm totally fine with, for what they market and provide (bare bones overnight accommodations). When we checked in, the room wouldn't even open, and even the staff couldn't get the door open. So they moved us to another room... More

I don't have a poor opinion of Motel 6; it is a niche and does what it does fairly well -- provide low cost, bare bones but OK accommodations for the budget traveler. I had had this property recommended to me as the best motel for the budget price close to the Plaza. I was underwhelmed when I pulled in... More
