We had to get away from the rainy May weather in Colorado so at the last minute booked this hotel because of its location to the center of town. We prefer to park the car and then walk to all we want to do. This is a perfect location. The river walk is just a few yards away for some... More

We used to stay at Garrett's regularly 8-9 years ago since it was the least expensive place to stay so close to the Plaza. We stayed at nicer places in the past few years and wanted to try Garrett's again since it was supposed to be remodeled. The pictures on their website convinced us to give them another shot. We...

Enjoyed the ease to walk downtown and eat at some of our favorite breakfast and dinner restaurants! A great location to shop and get a feel for this wonderful city! Getting ready to head back there in the upcoming summer months. Love the all around atmosphere!!

An old stand-by motor court, this is probably the best place to stay to walk to everything downtown, without dealing with multi-floor hotel, hotel services and where to leave your car. Traffic and parking in Santa Fe are ridiculous, and the large parking lot right at your door will be a great plus - but you have to pay for... More

We loved this place for its reminders of what traveling used to be like. If you are looking for a modern ritzy hotel this is not the place. If you are looking for a clean, nostalgic hotel, really close to the Plaza then this is the place. The room was clean,had good heating/cooling and a decent bed. It still has... More

Garrett's is nice, clean and pet friendly! Our room had a fridge and microwave along with the coffee pot. Great location - Walking distance to shops, museums, restaurants, and bars. Just two blocks from the plaza and the Canyon Rd galleries. Lots of convenient places to walk your dog along the river.

We didn't have a reservation in Santa Fe, and were happy to find this hotel near the plaza and restaurants. It is an older hotel with a newer lobby. The price was reasonable, but they do not include breakfast and charged $7.39 (plus tax?) per night for parking. The bed was comfortable, and we slept well. The first night we... More

My first stay at Garrett's.I am already planning another stay in the near future.The room was clean,comfortable and homespun.Only one regret we did not eat at the on site restaurant.The beds were more than adequate after two days of non stop sightseeing.There was no need to drive as the location is convenient to the Plaza.

My 1st stay in this hotel was ok, we checked in and out with out much issue. My 2nd stay was a really bad experience. The room I was in was really out dated, Tile crumbling and just a dirty feeling. I had some issues with the reservation that I made with the front desk manager, When I checked in... More

We stay at Garrett's every time we visit Santa Fe. It isn't the Broadmoor but it is very clean and right in the center of Old Town. Walking distance to everything in the town Plaza. Parking is plentiful, which is a rare find in that part of town. All the rooms have outside entrances. It's VERY affordable. We look at... More
