“How can a 2 star motel be this good?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

The location is perfect--three blocks from the plaza. The price is fair--no charge for parking your car. The room was great--roomy and very Santa Fe-ish. The people who own the place are wonderful--constantly giving you places to visit and restaurants that are great. The daily breakfast is good and has lots of choices. We could even use a laptop that they set up for guests. I have no complaints--just rave reviews. We stayed 8 days and they were wonderful.

Room Tip: Although the motel is on Cerrilos, we could not hear traffic. The motel does not attract college or...

We are glad you noticed our room rate is all inclusive except for taxes and that we don't try to "nickel and dime" our guests with parking fees, resort fees, wifi charges, etc. Also thanks for taking the time to share with Tripadvisor readers your exceptional experience at the Santa Fe Motel & Inn.

We booked three nights at the Santa Fe Motel and Inn and we are very happy that we did. We are in a casita with Mexican tile floor and beamed ceiling. The bathroom tile is a cut above what we normally see in pet friendly hotels. We also have a private patio that is perfect for Neemo the wonder dog. The motif is sensationally southwestern.

The good stuff includes -

Comfortable bed.
Flat screen TV with lots of channels
Free hot breakfast
Free WIFI
Refrigerator and microwave
Within walking distance of the Santa Fe plaza
Exceptionally pleasant decor

We are going to give this hotel our top rating. We really like it.

A quaint, cozy motel with charming touches--a rubber duckie in the shower and teeny red chiles atop the towels. Breakfast includes southwest flair--warmed green chile and flour tortillas for the scrambled eggs. There is some street noise And construction, but I sleep with earplugs anyway!

My sister and I travelled to Santa Fe for our first time a few weeks ago. Having no prior knowledge of the area, we found the Santa Fe Motel and Inn on google and thought it looked nice. We were blown away by how kind the staff were, how charming the rooms were, and over all what an excellent experience we had. GREAT free breakfast in the morning, good price for the room, and a short walk to the middle of town. I highly recommend Santa Fe Motel and Inn!

A bit pricey, but I wanted a unique experience and this inn delivered. Very comfortable beds, lovely courtyards and the breakfast was yummers! My room was darling, the bathroom and the little kitchenette were so pretty with all the decorative tiling. Fresh flowers, fast wifi, no complaints. I will be back.

Room Tip: Drink a ton of water while you're here, or even the 3-block walk to the Plaza will seem like a m...

recently a couple of friends and i were in santa fe on a "girl trip". we were pleased to find the santa fe motel and inn for its walking proximity to the square and railroad yard and reasonable prices. what we didn't know until we experienced them was how delightful the staff and accommodations would be!
the rooms were super clean and everywhere i went to hang something, there was a hook. when i went to place toiletry items, there was a shelf. one would not expect such attention to detail and craftmanship at a motel as i found here. tile patterns were matched in the shower, air conditioning units covered with interesting woodwork, chairs and plantings at each room, i could go on and on . . .
yes, i would look forward to staying here again and as it happens i will be going to santa fe this weekend and staying in one of the casitas at the santa fe motel and inn.
