We stayed at Casa Benavides about 25 years ago and absolutely loved it. I'm afraid nothing has been done to our room -- El Mirador -- no maintenance at all -- since then. It was positively the worst hotel/motel/b&b room I've had in years, and quite expensive as well! The whole room was a dingy beige -- beige walls, beige bed clothes, dirty brown couch (more later). The location is great, the newish lobby/sitting room/dining room are wonderful, the food is great, the people very nice and helpful. But that room is just ghastly! The couch cushions actually smelled -- a familiar smell of old old mildew and wet dog. Way past time for a new couch. The bed was comfortable, but the dinginess of the bed clothes was very unappealing -- old cotton blankets, beige cotton bedspread, nothing Southwestern about it at all -- nor was it anything like the photo on their website. I feel quite misled and abused. I won't stay there again -- I don't dare pick another room and have something like this happen again. Too bad -- great location and public space.
