“Nice rooms and good location but...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013 via mobile

Really lovely rooms and great breakfast but you hear everything from the other rooms- foot steps, tv, talking etc, which is kinda annoying when you are on holidays and want to sleep in. But overall its very good but because of the noise I would probably try somewhere else next time I stay.

Truly sorry that you happen to have gotten a rowdy neighbor... had you let the front office know about this, we would have spoken to them and preserved your tranquility! Sometimes things occur, but if we are made aware, most problems are easily rectified!
Respectfully,

We stayed at this wonderful motel many years ago, and knew we wanted to go back, and when our plans included a couple of days in Santa Fe we instantly knew where we wanted to stay. The location is wonderful, we walked almost everywhere. The rooms are decorated with southwestern charm (I loved the tiles) and is clean and comfortable. The breakfasts are the best!! We were traveling with family members and I knew I couldn't go wrong with this recommendation for all of us.

Room Tip: If steps are a problem ask for a ground-floor room as there is no elevator.

We love returning guests! This is exactly what we strive for, if we did our job well enough to bring you back, then I feel we succeeded! The little things that make the BIG differences, is what we are all about. The owner and I visit each room, and look at it through the eyes of a guest, we know that the things that make us stand out are location, value and personality!

On a meandering New Mexico trip, we pulled into Santa Fe and got out the GPS to find a motel. This was the closest one listed--what a lucky break for us. This place is absolutely delightful. It seemed more like a bed and breakfast than a motel. It was comfortable and clean, the staff was pleasant and helpful, and they serve one of the best breakfast buffets we've ever encountered in a motel (even excellent breakfast burritos.)

We had such a great experience here! We picked it because we were traveling with my dog and it was pet-friendly, affordable, and close to the plaza area. We arrived on Friday night a little after the main office closed, but they waited for us to get there so they could meet us and give us tips about restaurants and things to do in Santa Fe. The casita we stayed in (#15) was very cute and cozy. The bed was so comfy and the temperature in the room was perfect! You can control the thermostat for heat and A/C. They provide a nice hot breakfast every morning with two cute seating areas and they lit a little fire in the outdoor seating area because it was chilly in the morning. They were so accommodating with my dog. We just told them when we would be out of the room with my dog and the maid service came during that time. Piece of cake. I think the location is great. It's an easy walk to the plaza and an even easier walk to the railyard where the farmer's market and other shops are located. We wanted to stay in Santa Fe for a few hours after check-out on our last day and they let us leave our car in the parking lot without any problems. I would definitely recommend this place! Loved it!

Room Tip: The casitas are the pet-friendly rooms. Not all of the casitas have private outdoor patios, but some...

This motel is a delightful small inn that welcomes pets and is within easy walking distance to the Plaza, our two main reasons for choosing it. We had a casita with a small, walled-in patio that afforded us privacy and access to the outdoors for our dog. The accommodations were quite nice. The staff was very friendly and very helpful. The breakfast was very nice. Santa Fe Motel and Inn was a nice change-of-pace from the larger chain motels. I'd stay here again without hesitation and recommend it without qualification.

This was more like a B & B and so cozy! I was there on a girls' roadtrip and this was our favorite place on the trip. The rooms are a little small but we also had a kitchenette. The shower was hot, the beds were comfortable and the front desk clerk, Matthew, was extremely helpful. There were yoga mats that we used to get a little exercise and a bistro set outside our door that we used to chat with our neighbors.

Breakfast was included and it had all the basics with plenty of tables inside and outside. Everyone including the other guests were friendly and laid back. It was quite a peaceful place.

It's not a far walk (10 or 15 min) from all the action but there are a lot of closer places to the plaza. I'm still glad we chose the Santa Fe Motel and Inn because it was exactly what we were looking for.
