“Local Colores”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2009

Hacienda de Colores is well named. It is colorfully decorated with ethnic items from near and far, giving it much charm. The hacienda is conveniently located in Old Town. Although it backs up to to I-40, the freeway noise doesn't disturb, due to its adobe walls and a sound barrier wall along the freeway.

Our room had a king sized bed, a gas kiva fireplace and a rocking chair to pull in front of it if so desired, and a single tub with whirlpool jets. There was a small private patio with a bistro table and chairs that would have been pleasant in warmer weather. There's also high-speed wireless. The common area has a built-in seating area around another kiva fireplace, plenty of upholstered seating, a baby grand piano, a dining table and chairs, and counter stools along the serving peninsula, so quite a crowd could be accommodated. If you need information on local attractions, it's available on the coffee table. There's a pool and a very inviting patio for use in warmer weather.

Kim was a great hostess. We had to leave early one morning, so she made sure she was up in time to cook our breakfast (eggs benedict) before we were due to leave. Lots of other food was available in addition to the hot dish. Plus, she keeps wine in the fridge for her guests and there's also cake available.

If you want everything absolutely pristine and sealed in plastic, this is not the place for you. (But then again, if you're looking at B&B's instead of hotels, you probably DON'T want that.) I don't mean to say that anything was dirty; far from it. The linens smelled great and housekeeping was faultless! It's just more like staying at an artistic friend's home...some normal wear and patina is evident. However, if you want to feel secluded yet be close enough to explore the city easily, this is a great location that will give you a real feel of another place and time.
