Let's start with the positives:
1) We were told that there are no homeless shelters in Santa Fe and since Whole Foods has a strict policy on how long they can keep produce, canned goods, etc. - anything that was about to expire was delivered here on a weekly (sometimes more) basis. The result - AMAZING food available at all times.
2) We never had a problem with parking
That's pretty much where the positives stop.
Part of me thinks the employees here are part of a work release program or maybe day-trippers from a rehab facility. Not that there's anything wrong with that, unless you have a bad attitude or don't realize you're working in a service industry.
Upon checking in, we asked "We would really like to have a good meal, it doesn't have to be expensive, what is your favorite restaurant in Santa Fe?" The response from the employee: "I try not to spend money, so I actually don't know of any restaurants."
Okay, so some people are on more of a budget than others...
But I can say that:
- the staff was obsessed with collecting their $2 a day for wi-fi access to the point of berating guests who didn't hand over their quarters fast enough.
- I was chewed out complete with swear words for taking the "barrier" pillow cases off of my pillows upon cleaning my own room during check-out. Too bad the instructions scrawled on the back of the room door weren't clear enough.
- randoms from Santa Fe hung out here offering a super creepy vibe.
The entire place was just wrong.
Wrong, but CHEAP! I guess you get what you pay for.
