“Rest, relax & enjoy true hospitality!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

While on a 5 state motorcycle trip, we stayed at The Silver Saddle. What a pleasant & fun place to stay! The owners & the staff were very upbeat & helpful - always patient & pleasant. Our room was clean & spacious. Fun cowboy decor all around. Nice, homey, better than usual continental breakfast. Luscious fresh peaches while we were there...yum. Pretty little courtyard for eating, reading a book, relaxing. Just a fun atmosphere all around. We loved our stay!

Thanks to Tripadvisor, we tried the Silver Saddle in Santa Fe. It is a classic old motor court type motel - impeccably kept, extremely reasonable, pet friendly. The staff were super helpful and friendly, the breakfast (and courtyard) absolutely delightful (at breakfast we visited with a couple of Aussies who purposely looked for "quirky" motels following Route 66, and couldn't have been more pleased), and it is right next door to Jackelope - one of the most unique furniture/craft/shops/Mexican market compexes we've seen. Only negative - window AC was a bit noisy when it kicked in. We LOVED it!

Our stay here was so comfortable. The room was very clean and neat looking. We truly enjoyed breakfast on the patio every morning and the landscaping was fun. We were completely satisfied with our choice of the Silver Saddle!

We stayed a week at the Silver Saddle when we were in Santa Fe for the opera. All of the hotels in the town center were either booked or overpriced, so we reluctantly looked at the many motels out on the Cerillos strip. Thank goodness we found the Silver Saddles. The rooms, indeed the whole facility, is kept up immaculately and is very clean. It's not 21st century modern, but it's a charming reminder of mid-20th century. The facilities, though, are thoroughly modern. Free wifi throughout the motel. I did not have my laptop, but there was a computer to use in the lounge. The motel is family operated, and everyone who worked there was tremendously helpful and friendly. Our standard room had mini-fridge and microwave. The room was comfortable and had all the standard amenities. Because I did want the hassle of parking in the central town area and we were there during Indian Market, we very much appreciated the public bus service, which runs every 15 minutes and stopped right in front of the motel. The bus in Santa Fe is very reasonable-- $1.00 for adults and $.50 for seniors. We used it two different days to get into the central plaza. The owner takes special pride in decorating all the grounds with flowering plants. We were a little leery of the place not having a pool, since we planned to lounge around during the day, but there were several outdoor, shaded areas to pleasantly sit and relax. The excellent breakfasts (pastry, juice, drinks, hard-boiled eggs, cereal (hot & cold), yogurt, and fruit) was served in the lounge and outside patio. We were very pleasantly surprised by this wonderful place and would recommend it highly.

This is a sweet, happy little motel with a whole lot of charm and character. The room we had (Roy Rogers) was cute, spacious, and very clean. The little patio behind the front desk was a lovely place to have a cup of tea and forget that you are near a busy road (which wasn't really a noise issue anyway). The owner and staff were so kind and easy to talk to. The motel is next door to Jackalope-a huge and very fun shopping experience. We slept like babies, and breakfast the next morning was yummy and relaxing. We are so glad we decided to stay here instead of a much more expensive place downtown.

Room Tip: Our room had a little kitchen but was closer to the road-I don't know if the rooms farther away...

We had a wonderful stay here, loved the decor and the staff were great. Would definitely come back again! Cleanest room ever! It reminded me of motels we stopped at on vacation as a child. I'm glad my grandchildren were able to experience this.

The Silver Saddle takes you back in time to when Hwy 66 was the mother road and when mom and pop built small motels to rest the road worn travelers. The decor is pure New Mexico, Santa Fe, and comfortable. The rooms are attractive, breakfast is quite decent, the staff is terrific. It is next door to an amazing taco stand and Jackalope market. We loved it. This is no cookie cutter motel and will appeal to those who avoid chain restaurants and search for he hidden gem.

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms
