Me and my son (11 yrs) stayed five days in June, and had a very good time (apart from the fact that we really burnt ourselves in the sun -be aware, it is strong!). Although looking boring from the outside, we found the hotel to be a good choice. A nice little, quiet pool, a good breakfast buffet, a great... More

Nothing special, but clean and in a good location. If you are simply looking for a place to sleep then come here. If you are looking for a memorable visit to SF, then look elsewhere. We also stayed at the Inn of the Five Graces during our visit and although it was twice the price, it was worth every penny.

We had a great two-night stay in a mini-suite. We were 3 adults and one child. There is a super-comfy king bed and an ok queen sleeper sofa. The room was nice and the hotel was charming for the price range. It was hot during our stay so, because we were on the 2nd floor, we chose to leave our... More

I was concerned when we arrived at the hotel and tried to check in, they had no record of our reservation and were booked. But when I showed them our email confirmation, they immediately went to work to resolve the problem. They managed to move some things around and gave us an upgrade from the original room we had reserved.... More

The Inn is located two short blocks from the downtown square. Although the standard room is small, the beds and pillows were comfortable. The terry robes and array of complimentary toiletries are a nice touch. The complimentary hot breakfast buffet was generous and delicious. A lovely lady from the Santa Domingo pueblo sells well priced, handmade jewlery at breakfast. The... More

We booked a standard room which was tiny and crowded with 2 beds, no closet just a small rack and a couple of drawers and no heat ---just a space heater. We upgrade at an additonal $50 per nite and then had a wonderful room and loved it. But stay away from the standard room!!!!

We spent an extended Easter weekend at the Inn of the Governors and were very pleased with the facility. The room was large, with beamed ceilings, tiled bathroom, wood-burning kiva fireplace (excellent amenity since it snowed during our trip), balcony, leather sofa and armchair and a king-size bed. The complimentary breakfast buffet was much more extensive than a standard continental... More

Mom, daughter, and granddaughter stayed in a traditional room for the Easter weekend and I can't say enough good things about the hotel. We requested a room with a patio, ground floor, and it was perfect. It snowed which limited our outings, but being within 2 blocks of everything, it didn't hamper our trip at all. The hotel staff was... More
