After reading so many favorable TA reviews of Hacienda Grande we were looking forward to an overnight stay there. I can sum up our experience in one word: terrible. Was it just our room (Sandia)? Was it just an off-night? I don't know, but we definitely won't go back.
I don't mind not having a TV, or air conditioning, or phone in the room; that often goes with the territory in a "historic" B&B. But guests should not have to put up with a musty smell, mildew on the walls and and large areas of paint peeling off the walls. The roof and/or walls obviously has a leak, but there was no evidence of repair.
It also would have been nice to have a fresh small bar of soap in the bathroom and new small bottle of shampoo rather than half-used bottles of liquid soap and shampoos bought at a discount store. The shower head had not been cleaned in some time and so there were only a few streams of water coming from it. The rugs were stained and dirty.
The place should be renamed La Hacienda Dumpe.
