“Mini Family Ski Vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

We stayed at the Pueblo Bonito Bed and Breakfast Inn on a recent trip to New Mexico. We arranged to spend 2 nights here at this lovely, quaint Bed and Breakfast. I personally talked to Herb on the phone when making reservations, and he was very personable. He made sure that he told me that Amy, his wife would be sending an email detailing our reservations. We received the email in a timely manner. We arrived at the Inn, and we were pleasantly greeted by Amy and Herb. The rooms we stayed in were more than comfortable, and very tastefully decorated. The breakfast that was provided was more than adequate, having something for everyone. The tamales were delicious, and the selection of fruits, cereal's, cakes, and breads were bountiful. Amy and Herb have done a tremendous job in being proprietors of this unique GEM in Santa Fe. A historic building that Herb and Amy take pride in. They treated us like members of their family and were very concerned to see if there was anything they could do to make our stay more comfortable. We will be staying at the Pueblo Bonito Bed and Breakfast again in the future when we visit New Mexico.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are great.

Thank you Kay for the personal testimony of your stay at Pueblo Bonito bed and breakfast inn! Thank you so much for sharing as we very much enjoyed hosting you!
I'm so glad to know you had a wonderful, relaxing stay.

There's no better way to get your day started than with our filling breakfast featuring our famous "breakfast tamales". A traditional and tasty offering stuffed with red chili pork and enjoyed by all our guests- including gluten free folks! Complimenting our hot dish (tamales) we also offer a wide variety of choices: freshly cut fruits, oatmeal, granola, boiled eggs, low fat yogurts, pastries, coffee cake, baked breads, bagels, French toast, waffles, raspberry preserves, smears, fresh coffee, tea and juice! You are definitely correct, that our breakfast runs a full gamut when servicing all the different dietary needs and preferences of our guests!

Here at Pueblo Bonito Inn, your comfort is our top priority. We'll do everything we can to make sure you're having an enjoyable visit. I appreciate your kind words of affirmation regarding our service and warm hospitality and we're so glad you could spend a few nights with us. We look forward to hosting you again the next time you're in town!

Best,
Amy

Herb and Amy were wonderful hosts. There were plenty of easy choices for breakfast--including wonderful tamales! We also really enjoyed afternoon tea and snacks, while sitting in front of a cozy fire, after a tough day of shopping! Yes the building is old, but the room was clean and the bed was very comfortable.

Thanks so much for the kind words, Jane! Sounds like you had an adventurous day visiting all the shops in the area. There's certainly a wide variety to check out! And we agree with you--nothing beats relaxing with afternoon tea in front of a warm, crackling fire. It's the best cure for anything that ails you.

Of course, to have all the energy for a busy day on the town, you need a quality breakfast! I'm very glad you got to taste our tamales. They're a Santa Fe specialty, and we love seeing guests' faces as they try them for the first time!

Originally built in 1860 (154 years ago!) Pueblo Bonito B&B was a private estate...now that IS old! All exterior walls of the original main home, stables, and Indian Orno (outside bread oven) are definitely distinctive architectural features intentionally preserved to retain the authenticity of this massive historic adobe compound. Yes, we agree there's certainly an incredible amount of preserved history here for all to experience and enjoy! Our aim is to keep our rooms as comfortable as possible, to include all modern day amenities (comfortable beds, air conditioning, refrigerators microwave, flat screen TV, Wi-Fi, etc) while preserving that very unique, traditional Old Santa Fe lodging opportunity for our guests. We're always happy to welcome any feedback.

I really do appreciate you taking the time to leave a review. It's so helpful to us as owners, and also to any guests considering a stay with us. Thanks again, and hope to see you the next time you're in town!

Best,
Amy

We stayed here with our dog during a recent road trip and loved it! The owners and staff are very friendly and tremendously helpful. Our suite was beautiful, comfortable, and very clean...and, the breakfast tamales are delish! In fact, we loved this place so much we booked another night on our way back home. Stay here...you'll love it!

We have stayed at Pueblo Bonita quite a few times and the experience has always been good. One of the things we like best is the easy walk from Pueblo Bonito to downtown art galleries and shops. Breakfast is very good and the staff is consistently pleasant and helpful. The buildings are very old (maybe a couple hundred years?), well-maintained and very charming.

Always nice to have you return "home" to Pueblo Bonito bed and breakfast! Glad your experiences have always been good and you enjoy our breakfasts and staff. You mentioned one benefit of staying with Pueblo Bonito Inn—we're so close to all the great sights Santa Fe has to offer! Just a short walk to the Plaza, Canyon Road, Governors Gallery, restaurants, and a number of other shops, museums, etc.

Of course, with so much to explore, a hearty breakfast is a must. Did you try our new breakfast item- "Pueblo Tamales"? Delicious and perfectly sized, these moist red chili pork tamales have proven to be a great way to introduce our guests to the traditional New Mexico culture. It's our pleasure to serve a complimentary meal to start your day, with a wide variety of options. And you're right: our buildings have been on the property for over 150 years! But we certainly keep them well-maintained, and I'm glad you feel comfortable in them.

I really do appreciate you taking the time to share your experiences. Always happy to host you whenever you're in town!

We stayed just one night,our room was clean,cozy and we enjoyed the fireplace. The room was small as well as the bathroom,it was fine for one night. The mattress on the bed seemed a little lumpy and pillows need to be changed. I was surprised to only find 2 bath towels and 2 wash clothes in the bathroom,no hand towels but then I am picky about towels.

Having stayed at b&b's many times I was surprised at the breakfast,it was good but not what you usually see at a b&b. The bagels and cream cheese good. Just not any hot food,they did have tamales in a crock pot which seemed a little dry. There was some juice,fresh fruit,bake goods,cold cereal. It was fine.

The owners are wonderful they are the best part of this b&b,they are friendly,helpful. We enjoyed meeting them very much,they make you feel welcome.

Thanks for staying for the night! I'm glad you had a great time- 4 star rating of your stay- as we really enjoyed meeting you as well.

I would like to point out that all of our beds are high quality, posturepedic mattresses. Of course, it's a matter of preference, and so I apologize if yours wasn't 100% to your preference. As for harder or softer pillows, extra towels or other needs, we serve thousands of guests and can usually accomodate each if asked. So we encourage you next time to please ask- it's our desire to make you as comfortable and cozy as we possibly can! We're happy to provide more, free of charge.

I'm happy you enjoyed our breakfast, too. While for a hot dish we feature our famous handmade Pueblo Tamales, we also feature a 7 ft buffet table completer with a wide variety of items to choose from as well a gluten free and dairy intolerant items! You'll be more than ready for a busy day of exploring (or in your case, traveling!).

Thanks again for allowing us to serve you. If you're ever back in Santa Fe, we'd love to see you again!

Amy Behm

Love this place... charming, old-world style rooms with plenty of heat (we visited in Dec), lovely floors (slate), traditional adobe style and authenticity. The breakfast was just right... good quality and variety with friendly guests in a lovely sunny morning room. The staff were gracious and super friendly throughout our stay, offering wine glasses and a bottle opener as we needed them one night. The room is quaint, old-world cozy and authentic, so don't expect high-end fanciness. Rooms kept wonderfully clean. Kiva fireplace in the room is a real plus - so nice after a Winters' day out! Location right next to the State Capitol is an easy walk to downtown across the river. No complaints whatsoever, other than the water tank for the shower was a little small, but they are in a desert climate so this encourages water conservation... not a bad thing :^)

I highly recommend this place - we'll be back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with no room upstairs (i.e. no room above you).

Thank you for the five-star recommendation, Stephen. I'm thrilled to hear you enjoy everything from the location to the atmosphere—we work hard to maintain a warm and cozy authentic Santa Fe or "old world" feel as you state above. You can imagine how much we appreciate your compliment. You're right, the authentic in-room kiva fire place is definitely a real plus after a winter's day out! Just one of the unique amentities guests experience at our 150 yr old historic bed and breakfast inn.

As far as the water tanks go, all our rooms have their own individual hot water heaters (40 gallons!). As you noted, we are in a desert climate and thus follow strict city water conservation regulations requiring us to have "low flow" shower heads and toilets. Hope that clears things up!

We'd love to get the chance to welcome you back the next time you're in Santa Fe. Until then, take care!

Best regards,

My husband and I stayed here one night, during a cross-country road trip. We were thrilled with our stay. It's in a great location, walking distance to the historic parts of Santa Fe. The staff was very helpful and welcoming. Our room was clean, cozy and had a working fireplace. The breakfast was great. (The local tamales were fantastic!) We thought overall it was a great value, and would definitely come back.

Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to serve you! I'm really glad you had a great visit and enjoyed your accomodations. Sounds like you took advantage of our "prime" proximity to historic Santa Fe plaza, restaurants, shops, galleries, etc and any things you wanted to see. The breakfast included with your stay is just the cherry on top—those tamales are the pride and joy of New Mexico...I've yet to meet someone who didn't love them as the were recently added to our breakfast buffet offerings this past holiday season.

We hope your road trip across the country was uneventful and memorable. So many great sights to visit and experience in the USA- New Mexico definately being one! And of course, if you ever find returing to Santa Fe, we hope to host you again.
