“10 Stars if I could!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Found the Silver Saddle on a random web search, and just needed a place for my wife and I to crash after a late night flight and before heading deeper into Northern New Mexico. Staff was totally on top of handling our late arrival (1:30am), room was clean, colorful, fun and funky. Breakfast was tasty, healthy and in on a charming patio. Staff was hugely helpful helping us figure out our travel plans for the days to follow. Liked it so much, we booked a room for a few nights later before our return, and again the staff was great. 2nd room was a bit bigger, and had nice amenities including a well-placed junction box for charging phones, etc.

This is an old school Route 66 type motel. It is a refreshing change from the cookie cutter, over priced chains. We had the "Willie Nelson Room" (#3). Clean, quiet, comfortable and reasonably priced. Only minor complaint is lack of electrical outlets, but this is an old motel and wasn't built to accommodate all our electronic gadgets that constantly require charging. Friendly owners and a wonderful breakfast out on the patio.

Room Tip: Rooms toward the back are further from the highway although noise was not a problem up front.

Just a warning out there to folks who are booking trips last minute. I booked the Silver Saddle for a last minute trip to Santa Fe, and changed my mind a couple of hours later, but it was inside of their no cancellation time, so was charged for the two room stay. Be sure you are gong to make it, they are very inflexible! This can make it a very expensive hotel, to say the least.

I think the title says it all. Our stay last week was perfect - very clean, best beds in town, easy to get to and affordable, with breakfast. The rooms are decorated with a Western theme, which Dawn does herself, and the grounds are lovingly cared for and very pretty. This place has it all and at a very reasonable price with free parking. We mentioned we were getting up early one morning to go to Chama and they provided us with the coffee maker, coffee, cups, etc. so we could have some before we left. They really go out of their way to make their guests feel welcome. Thanks Dawn, Miguel and all of the Silver Saddle staff - Rocko too!

Room Tip: Rooms with higher room numbers are in back - more quiet.

Great hotel that's a flashback to mid-Century times. A "must do" on a Route 66 tour. Short (10 minutes) and easy drive to the Plaza, and close to other interesting things to do. Don't miss the Jackalope complex next door - lots of artisans and imports at better prices than the Plaza stores. Clean and tidy rooms with everything you need; kitchenette included fridge, sink, microwave. TV and cable. Table space too. Shower is tiny, but functional. Well-kept property with friendly and welcoming staff. Breakfast was pretty basic, but it's nice to have a little something to get you going so that the first big decision of the day doesn't have to be breakfast. People enjoyed visiting as we dined al fresco. Considering this room cost about 90% less than others available, it is a heck of a deal.

Room Tip: Recommend Room 23 for peace and decor - very pleasant and quiet room.

I love this place. Clean and affordable in expensive Santa Fe. Rooms have western theme to them. Get room #1 it has a lot of space. The lady that checked me allowed me to pick what room would suit my needs better. When in Santa Fe this would be a must stay. I cannot say enough good things about this place. Even spoke to the owner the next morning and she was very nice decent motel breakfast too. Thanks Silver Saddle.

We are so happy that our search for pet-friendly, reasonably-priced accommodations led us to the Silver Saddle! This historic Route 66 motel, while updated to meet the needs of today's travelers, retains all the charm of its original design. The friendly, enthusiastic owners Dawn and Miguel were welcoming and helpful with their suggestions for navigating Santa Fe. Had a wonderful patio breakfast while chatting with other Midwest guests. We'd love to go back and spend more time here--we'd definitely recommend the Siver Saddle to those looking for an authentic taste of old Route 66!

Room Tip: If traveling with a pet, please be sure to ask for a pet-friendly room.
