This is our third stay at the Silver Saddle (Feb 17-20). Overall, we experienced the same excellent service consistent with our two other previous stays. You’ll find this “budget” motel to be uncommonly rare, and packed with values. My impression is that Dawn, Miguel, Ted and owner Penny’s idea of hospitality is akin to treating guests more as clients, especially for those actively seeking assistance or advice about sightseeing, dining, and shopping. Their knowledge, extra touches to comfort, and genuine interest for helping you get the most out of your stay is indeed rare.
Since at least summer 2009, the Saddle has continued its various room upgrades, the latest being upgrading to wide screen TVs. Overall, rooms are bright and very comfortable. In the past, Dawn has given us naproxene for headaches, great tips on affordable New Mexican-style dining (Maria’s, Pantry, The Shed), along with affordable shopping tips, hiking & biking trail guides (Dale Ball trails) and tips on many points of interest too numerous to mention. There’s a very handy reference library in the main office containing all kinds of outdoor guides, books, maps and magazines focusing on Santa Fe and other destination locations in New Mexico. It’s a great source for trip ideas. Shopping for southwestern-style décor is as quick as a walk across the parking lot to Jacalope, a good starting place for gift shopping.
For the thrifty, bus route 2 offers stops right at the motel, where a 20 minute bus ride takes you to downtown central, within a ten minute walking distance to everything--the plaza, governor’s palace and government offices, art galleries, restaurants, shops and more. Bring your questions or trip ideas over to the main office during the freebee continental breakfast (7:30-10A) and take advantage of their tips and assistance.
