Great location, beautifully maintained. Good parking facilities. Excellent staff, especially 'Ken' and an extremely helpful woman who couldn't do enough to help us (unfortunately I can't remember her name but she helped with all the luggage and never seems to stop!!). Complimentary breakfast was really nice. Only niggle was the bar attached - you weren't allowed to 'stand' near the... More

Perfectly located just a block or two from the plaza. Friendly and helpful staff, comfortable rooms, great complimentary full breakfast, free parking. We couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay.

Very central location, you can walk to most places in town. Complimentary breakfast and parking which was nice. The room was on the small side, only 1 person at a time in the bathroom. Hotel was clean convenient. Fine spot for a few days.

A well maintained hotel in a great location. Good service. Sleeping room was quiet after 11 PM but a bit noisy from traffic from 8 PM to 11 PM. Bedding seemed a bit dated but comfortable. The attached restaurant provides a good buffet breakfast. My only complaint was the quality and speed of the wireless Internet was so poor it... More

We've stayed here many times and this hotel never disappoints. Even though the hotel is older, the rooms are always spotlessly clean and well appointed. This hotel is one of the best options in Santa Fe if you want to be close to the Plaza. The pool is currently under renovation (until August 2015), but they have arrangements for pool... More

Yes, the pool will not reopen until August, but I can assure it will offer a brand new look and a wonderful patio experience. I look forward to welcoming you back soon. In Health and... More

From the lady who has worked there 25+ years, who met us in the driveway as we first arrived and walked to show us where to park (then she insisted on taking our bags up) to the maids and office staff, this was a very nice and very good experience. The complimentary breakfast was the very finest in terms of... More

Well run hotel in Santa Fe decor. Very close to the square, but quiet and reasonably priced. Well-appointed rooms with a number of nice touches. The inn is much bigger than it seems from the website, but has a small hotel feel. Free sherry and tea in the afternoons and a fabulous breakfast.

From the moment you drive into the entrance...to the day you leave... you'll not find a friendlier, more convenient, more accommodating, and less pretentious venue to stay, while your in Santa Fe.
