“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

We visited Santa Fe for the International Folk Art Festival and booked four nights in this charming Route 66 motel. We received helpful advice from the owner/staff; also the use of a corkscrew to replace ours confiscated on the airplane! The best thing about this motel is the friendly and fun atmosphere. We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast of fruit, cereal, juice, coffee, and a variety of breads, but most of all, we enjoyed visiting with the other guests there. I think the pleasant attitude of the staff filters down to the guests and makes for a good experience for all. Everything else was more than adequate: comfortable bed, television, microwave, refrigerator, good shower. There are also picnic tables on the grounds and plenty of parking just outside each unit. Highly recommended!

Clean, friendly and nice 'roadside motel' in the best of the 50s tradition. Bed very comfy, maid service top notch. Reception very helpful. They provided me with a coffeemaker for the room. i had a fridge, microwave, wifi and flat screen 19" TV all of which worked very well indeed althoug TV is mounted pretty high to clear the microwave. Bathroom in the blue yellow style of the fifties very well set out. Shower is SRO but lots of hot water after long hiking days. AC worked great but very noisy. Rooms are light on light but typical for the type. Styled in southwestern colors. There was a small desk with two chairs, plenty of closet space for a small room. Yeah, I liked it. Cerrillos Road is very crowded during the day but thats about the worst of it.

This hotel was an excellent choice for an icon Route 66 motel. The rooms were spacious. All of the staff were friendly and extremely helpful. It was lovely to enjoy the breakfast on the patio area. Would recommend as one of the best Route 66 icon motels.

It's hard to find an inexpensive room in Santa Fe. Based on TA we decided to take a chance for our quick trip (one night) and booked a room at Silver Saddle Motel....A Blast From The Past. Realizing it's an old motel we found it to be terrific. Immaculate, great beds, excellent service, funky fun cowboy art in the room, all at an amazing price. It doesn't try to be the Hyatt but what it does it does exceedingly well. We didn't have the breakfast so cannot comment about that. We appreciated the free wifi. Our only complaint was the air conditioner which was noisy and a bit hard to regulate. Silver Saddle is a budget motel that is MUCH more fun than any chain...Lot of special little touches.

Room Tip: We had room 22, about as far from the street as you can get. It was fine.

My husband and I are staying here for a two-night stay on our trip to Estes Park, Colorado. I read numerous reviews and chose the Silver Saddle based on location, price and availability of the King sized bed my husband needs in order to sleep well.
We arrived and were quickly checked in with a friendly smile. Our room was the "Willie Nelson" room which is admittedly quite small, but it is adequate for our purposes.
There is no closet nor is there even a dresser, only a very small armoire for storing clothes. The microwave is truly the tiniest one I've ever seen and there is also a micro fridge. The bathroom is clean and the shower is very large and has good water pressure, but the toiletries are inadequate so I recommend you bring your own.
There is a continental breakfast included with the room, but we didn't take advantage of it. The seating area for the breakfast is quite quaint and there are lots of kitchy antiques and things in the lobby.
The best things about this room: it's block wall construction and the air conditioner's white noise gave my husband the perfect environment for a great night's sleep; that being the whole purpose of the room in my view, we're really happy with the choice of this room and this motel.The rate was terrific for the Santa Fe area and it's conveniently located to all the attractions.
In short, for the price, location and for a quick stay I would definitely stay here again.

I usually apply 5/5s in a scale beginning with tents and ending with true palaces. But I've no trouble giving a 5/5 for this motel because I love what it is: a well-kept, well-run establishment that revels in its Route 66-style glory and is a true bargain. The rooms are quaint and updated, but there's no escaping that this motel was built long ago. And that's the beauty of it. For example, rather than thin walls it has noise-killing block. For this rate, I had expected to suffer. Instead, I'm thoroughly satisfied.
