“Loved this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013 via mobile

So much more than just a hotel. Fantastic, friendly staff, excellent customer service. It started a few hours after I booked my room on-line. The manager called to verify I was staying three days, then talked about the "3rd night special" rate that would save me money (no catch, just saved money, for the same accommodations). Then 3 weeks prior to travel, they mailed me a really nice almost 300 page guide, "Inside Santa Fe." When we checked in, the manager came over and personally greated us. The front desk staff was extremely friendly and very helpful with restaurant information. The hotel complex (consisting of several buildings) was very nicely decorated in typical Southwest decor. Very clean. The Keurig in the room was a nice touch. We stayed in a King Delux room. Very spacious, very comfortable bed, with a desk and sofa (sleeper). Wine & cheese from 4-5 pm daily with a very friendly server. Bar stays open afterward thru the evening. Each building has a nice lobby, exercise room, hot tub spa, etc. Breakfast was well beyond most hotel's free breakfast. Quiche, breakfast burrito, stuffed croissants were restaurant quality, wide assortment of pastries, fruit, yogurt, cereal, etc, etc. Gluten free and dairy free offerings as well. And Great Coffee! Parking is free (rare among downtown hotels). Located a block from the start of the Canyon Rd galleries, a short walk to the plaza and downtown restaurants. Definitely will stay here on my next trip to Santa Fe.

What really sets the Inn apart is the friendly, helpful service - every staff member is wonderful and you feel very welcome. Another difference is the food: Included in the room rate is a buffet breakfast with good choices (including delicious hot quiche), serving until a late 11:00, which is appreciated when on holiday. A wine and cheese hour was held in the afternoon, a great way to take a break from the sightseeing and shopping. Staying over Xmas, the Inn also treated us with cookies and wine as a holiday special - very nice.

We stayed in a second-floor basic room and it was very clean, good size, and functional. Most important, the bed was very comfy! My only reasons for not rating the Inn excellent is that I would have preferred a more sophisticated interior design (especially is such an art-oriented community) and there was a bit of noise between floors (just a result of construction). However, for the money, it's a value.

If I were to return to Santa Fe, I would gladly stay here again.

Room Tip: If noise is a problem for you, take a top floor room, as there is some noise between the floors from...

We've been to Santa Fe for years (we're native) and yet the Inn has escaped us. No more. We stayed here three nights. Really friendly staff. Quaint, but had all we needed. Rooms were clean and renovated/ updated. Nice expanded continental breakfast with options for those of need (gluten free, non-dairy, etc.). A simple two-block walk to the Plaza. Plenty of parking. Wine and Cheese reception. Nice fireplaces in the Lobby to relax you. Not a busy place, just right, we would say. We will be back. Enjoy.

Room Tip: The Inn is adjacent to Alameda Avenue, so I suppose the further away you get the better, but we had...

Here's the down side first...there was not a microwave but did have fridge....the faucet was a little weird in that it turned funny..if you're being really picky the water in the shower was a tad bit odd to Regulate.....now all that said we LOVED this inn!!! It has the sweetest atmosphere... The wine cheese reception is excellent! (tell Charlie the Skinners said hello) Be sure not to miss! You might be personally welcomed by Jonathan the hotel manager who is the greatest! The breakfast is delicious! Wonderful quiche! Great quality! Parking is free! Location is great walking distance to everything. Wonderful experience would stay there again!

Nothing really to add. Excellent place to stay in Santa Fe. One and half block from the Plaza, great breakfast, clean stylish rooms. Very cozy and comfortable. Fron 4-to 5 pm vine and cheese tasting hour, with other snacks to try.

Room Tip: Second floor seems to have a better view.

We still love to stay at The Inn on the Alameda for all the same reasons: spacious, beautifully decorated rooms, lovely common areas, great breakfasts, nice wine and cheese hour every afternoon, excellent location between the Plaza and Canyon Road, and a very friendly and attentive staff. We were just there the last week of 2012, and it was all we have grown accustomed to expect with each visit.

Room Tip: The casitas are larger and feel more home-like, with fireplaces, separate living areas, and doors th...

Had a perfect stay at the Inn! Made my reservations with Jose but was unable to get a suite for the first night. We were able to move to a suite for the last 3 nights thanks to Jose who personally came and helped us move. The suite was fabulous with mini bar, private patio and most importantly the kiva fireplace. The free wine and cheese everyday is wonderful, allowing you to meet other people and maybe discover somewhere you'd like to go. Again, Jose was so helpful with places to go and see and where to eat, his recommendations were fabulous. The location is perfect to walk to most of the sites and places you need to see. The breakfast is a wonderful addition with many choices. We would definately stay here on any return trip!

Room Tip: Choose a suite with a fireplace
